God can be trusted.

Our prayers will not go unheeded.

It’s like a little girl

who crawled up into her father’s lap

while was reading the newspaper.

She told him how much she wanted him to build her a doll house.

She didn’t climb down till her daddy had promised to do just that,

although he was somewhat distracted and agreed

mostly because he wanted to be allowed to continue to read his paper.

He forgot about his promise until he walked into her room one evening

and saw all her dolls and doll furniture were packed to move into the new dollhouse.

When he asked her about it,

she simply told him

that she knew he would be building it

(even though has hadn’t yet begun!)

because he had promised that he would.

That was goo enough for her.

I don’t know of a better definition of faith.

God has promised to heed our prayers.

They will not go unanswered.
