JAM with God

Prayer is nothing but surrender. It’s the placing of our will, desires and thoughts into the hands of God Almighty and then resting them in Him. The problem lies in the ‘resting in Him part’ for the waiting period is toughest.  I was brought up in a home where prayer formed an integral part of our day. My parents are people of deep faith and prayer. My mum, like most expressive mothers, reminds me that she prays for me and I believe that she does. She along with many other people often reminds me how much they pray for priests.  Yesterday I experienced the collective power of prayer once again.

I am no gadget geek and technology terrifies me. Like many, I hate any one tampering with the settings on my gadgets.  Most of my technologically challenged life is reduced to three uncomplicated steps that help me operate one of these modern marvels that never seem to stop getting more marvellous, often by the second.

Yesterday technological terror visited me again; my computer screen froze. I tried the little tricks I have been taught and mechanically I went about attempting to fix a frozen screen.  Step One, press and hold the “Ctrl,” “Alt” and “Del” keys in that order and select the Task Manager when the screen changes. Step two, on the “Applications” tab, see if any programs are listed as “Not Responding.” Step three, select the frozen program and click “End Task.” Nothing happened!

I threw my hands up in despair. It was time to give up and send a message by whatsap to the recipients of my blog; their daily dose of spiritual insight was not coming through today. The devil it seemed had taken over my laptop.  Out went my first whatsap message, “computer crashed, no blog today”. Within seconds my phone began beeping like a car backing up at rapid speed. Messages that ranged from sad emoticons to words of support and yes even promises to pray.

My phone must have hit two hundred odd messages in five minutes flat when ‘just like that’ the computer screen lit up. It was as if by some miracle a heart monitor beeped to life minutes after the doctors declared the time of death.  My computer lives again, Alleluia.

Spread the love ♥
