She asked for prayer

Saturday, September 14, 2013

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.
Thank you,
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.

    What that woman needs is a good lawyer, since that man has a responsibility to pay support after making EIGHT kids.

    I have had that cross in my car for years .... in early years it reminded me to say a prayer upon leaving to make my journey safe -- no matter how short it was -- now it is a habit that I am proud to have each and every time I sit in a moving vehicle no matter who is driving ... so glad that it has an impact on others also as relayed in your blog. Sharing prayers for your visitor. Roc

    That was so beautiful, Karen! I hope that poor woman is doing ok. That would be so tough, having 8 kids and, your husband leaving, how sad!

    I hope you have a beautiful Sunday!

    Thank you for sharing that touching moment.

    Oh Father God, heal that marriage. Bring the hubby home. Help the mother and touch the children, each one, where they need it most. In Jesus name.
