How God Showed Our Granddaughters that He Answers Prayer

We tell our grandchildren that God answers prayer. God showed them He does.

Three granddaughters and their parents left our apartment right on schedule. The elevator came. We got on. The door shut. The elevator didn’t move. The door wouldn’t open. We pushed the help button.

Grandpa said, “Let’s all pray, ‘Father, we need your help.'” The elevator moved. When it stopped, the door opened. We made it outside before their Uber ride to the airport arrived. We thanked God!

God used an elevator emergency to show our granddaughters that He answers prayer.

May we never forget.

Begin and End With Worship

Notice what Solomon did before and after he asked for wisdom.

The king went to an important place of worship and sacrificed 1,000 burnt offerings to the Lord. That night the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream (from 1 Kings 3:4-5).”

Solomon woke up, returned to Jerusalem, stood before the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant, and sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings (from 1 Kings 3:15).”
