At first she could not raise her hand more than a few inches from her body. After a few minutes of prayer she could raise her arm straight out from her body. Finally, after several more minutes of prayer, she could raise her arm above her head.
I had no hope, but I started to pray and when I did I started to focus on some facts.
The Apostle John says that through Jesus we become children of God (John 1:12).
Jesus also said that if a child asks his father for fish that his father would not give him a snake instead, and how much more would God give to His children (Luke 11:11-13).
If we shamelessly persist, God will answer (Luke 11:8).
We need to approach God boldly. No different than a child to his father (Hebrews 4:16).
As we stood there watching the band set up one of the band members approached us. He had a mullet and a jean jacket with the arms cut off. He asked us if we were interested in listening to the music, and he handed me a business card with the band’s information. I asked what kind of music they played, and he said, “Christian music”.
Being the jerk that I was, I held out my hand and Jeff gave me a lighter. I proceeded to burn the card, and then arrogantly flicked it at the man’s feet. I then turned and walked away.
