I have a decorative cross on my car. I put it on there when I bought the car about 4 years ago. I have had a cross on my cars for many, many years, seems like always, maybe like many of you. But I'll tell you I don't always feel like I'm worthy to "wear" it on my car, because I'm not always a good person. I often grit my teeth and swear at bad drivers and when I'm running late I have many bad thoughts while slowing down for the yellow light and sitting through the red one.
I got in my car after grocery shopping today and when I was about already to pull out of the parking spot I saw a slip of paper under my windshield wiper. As I was getting out to get the paper and see what it said I thought oh no some one had dented my car and they left a note, but no it was some thing else.
This is what it said. "Hi, I was in the parking lot and saw the cross on your car. I am a wife and my husband left 8 months ago. I am just barley making it and I wanted to ask you to pray for me, I hope you will.
Mom of 8 children"
It just broke my heart. I had to stop there and pray for her and I prayed for her constantly all the way home and many times since then today too.
I'm glad I have that cross on my car. And I hope that some day some one else in need of prayer will leave me a note so I know how to pray for them. Most of us go on with our daily lives knowing that others out there are in dire need of prayer, but we don't know who or why.
Lord, thank you for giving that woman the courage to stop by my car and ask for prayer.
