Barbara Ho writes about the time when she was six months pregnant and her winter coat would no longer fit. She and her husband went into a Sears and Roebuck and found a coat that would have been perfect for her. The price was $69, which would have been about $75 with tax. Since they did not have much income and already had trouble paying their monthly bills, they drove home without purchasing the coat.
On the drive home they lifted up their situation to God in prayer. When they arrived at their apartment they found an envelope in the mailbox. No, it did not have money in it. It contained an anonymous gift card to Sears for $75!
They got back in the car and went to purchase the coat.
God often gives us what we ask for in prayer. Sometimes he answers our prayers in amazingly specific ways!
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”—Matthew 7:7.
