God Answered Our Prayers
We've heard or read the story of David, who killed the giant Philistine Goliath with just a slingshot and a stone.
Many of us know the incredible story of Noah and his ark. God told the old man to build it to protect him and his family from a massive flood. Our heavenly father told him to take two of EVERY animal species onto the ark because he planned to drown everything and everybody else.
Then, there's the greatest story ever told. A young girl named Mary gives birth to the savior of the world, who performed miracles, healed the sick, died on a cross, then was resurrected after three days.
It's pretty normal to wonder if these stories actually happened as they were written. Everybody has differing levels of faith, and people will argue about how we got here and where we are going after we die.
Two weeks ago, I believe that millions of people beheld a miracle when Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was attacked by an exercise treadmill. I am certain that millions of Americans who were victimized by Dingy Harry were praying to God to send Harry a sign from above.
The harm that the former Senate Majority Leader has done to this country is so vast that only God could ever sort it out. I am sure that millions of praying Americans all wanted the same thing, and God answered their prayers.
Jesus teaches that we are to pray for our enemies.Wouldn't it be great if God had also knocked some sense (or common decency) into Harry in the process?
