Praying for Peace in Evansville

After a shooting a few weeks ago and a car chase ending in a wreck that took the lives of 3 people this past week, we spent our Sunday afternoon praying around the block.

A Simple Prayer

They were a little downhearted because they hadn't earned anything yet. We prayed that God would send them business and help them earn some money. As we turned to walk away, we made it three steps before Kaitlyn looked down and said, "Look, a dime!" She picked it up, grinned, and handed it to the girls. I looked down too, but didn't see any more money. Then John reached down right where I had looked and said, "Look, a quarter!" I looked down a second time and right where I had looked a moment before, was a second quarter, and then, a third. Then, in the street, and another dime, no, two dimes! It was amazing. John, Kaitlyn and I all had the same experience of coins seeming to appear right where we were standing in places where we had looked only moments before. We found three quarters, three dimes, and three pennies. When John and Kaitlyn walked back past the girls 20 minutes later they had earned another four dollars! They were over the moon. Thank you Lord for answering a simple prayer.
