Prayer Request and Samuel Story


Prayer Request and Samuel Story

The mother of a very good friend of mine, Gary, recently passed away. Please pray for her and for Gary as he goes a great distance to attend to all the matters that so unfortunately accompany becoming an orphan at our age.

I had to go out last night to spend some time with Gary. I explained to Samuel that Gary's mother had died and left. I came back to find Samuel bouncing off the walls because he was so tired. I took him into bed and we said our nighttime prayers. Unsolicited, Samuel prayed for Gary's mother. After prayers and "Pledge of Allegiances" he said to me, "I wish Gary's mother wasn't dead." I found that very moving, that so young a child has begun to develop a notion of sympathy and concern. But then, I would, wouldn't I?
