WISDOM STORY: Prayers Heard! by Nathalie Leone

Prayers Heard! by Nathalie Leone

From: Christian Stories of Wisdom

Two men in conversation were seated on the edge of a pubic fountain whose fine jet of water splashed them gently.

The first man said:

“When I need a favor, either for myself or others, I ask for it on my knees, behaving with the good Lord as I would with a merchant who seeks only to dispense his surplus knowledge.  And I pray, ask, and beg.”

“Are your prayers always answered?” asked the other man, skeptical.

“Always.  Either the favor is granted or I feel my will merge in such a manner with God’s will that, at that very moment, I wish for everything he wishes for.”
