Faith & Prayer

Over the weekend I was reading through some of the quilting blogs at Quilter Blogs.com and stumbled on the story of a little boy with Autism named Gene Paul. You really need to visit Pumpkin Patch Primitives and read the whole story, but the condensed version is that Gene Paul was in a horrible mood because of the constant rain here in the northeast and wanted it stopped. His mother tried to explain to him that only God can change the weather, so he would have to ask God to stop the rain. It was at that point that Gene Paul's mother began to pray that her son's prayer would be heard, so that he would learn faith and trust in God. Although God sometimes answers 'no' or 'not right now', this time the answer to both prayers was 'yes'. It was such a touching reminder that God, faith and prayer will see us though life's storms no matter how big or small the storm is. God cares about our every need and concern and all we have to do is ask for His help with faith and we will be answered. Yesterday I mentioned a storm that my sister is going through and I want to thank you all for your kind words, but mostly for your prayers! Prayers are what will see my sister through this storm and all of your prayers are greatly appreciated!
