A dear friend of mine called the other day to tell me a story about her son. I preached a sermon on Shameless Audacity a week before, and she wanted to share a story about that kind of prayer. Her son was laid off from his job. With a wife and four kids in tow, he needed work and he needed it fast. He interviewed in his field for a while, but settled on an ever available Texas oil field job. The problem is that the job requires being away from his family for weeks at a time. He prayed for God to help, and it seems God has heard his cry. None of the jobs for which he applied ever called back. But, one job he flippantly sent a resume before he was ever laid off called. In fact, it is in his new home town and seems to be a perfect fit. We are praying that it is the Lord’s will, but that is not really the point.
