Living in Faith (2)

Today I visited a welfare agency store that sells recycled goods to the public. Low and behold I bumped into another ex-student, Martin, who works there. We chatted and Martin explained with a smile that after a long time he now had access to his two children and was appreciating their company.

I asked Martin, “If God can do a miracle in your life today, what would it be?” Then I asked, “Can I pray for you?” He looked at me and said, “Not here.” We were standing at the front of the store near the service desk.

So we moved to the rear of the store and Martin invited me into his “office,” a second-hand sofa surrounded by other second-hand furniture. Martin didn’t hesitate, he asked that he would express positive and encouraging words toward his children and avoid putting them down.

So sitting on the second-hand sofa, and with heads bowed, I prayed for Martin that he would indeed have the right words to say to his children.
