Never underestimate the power of aprayer


Never Underestimate The Power Of Prayer

A poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her

face, walked into a grocery store.

She approached the owner of the store in a most

humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a

few groceries.

She softly explained that her husband was very ill and

unable to work, they had seven children and they

needed food.

The grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she

leave his store at once

Visualizing the family needs, she said: “Please, sir! I

will bring you the money just as soon as I can.”

The Grocer told her he could not give her credit, since

she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who

overheard the conversation between the two.

The customer walked forward and told the grocer that

he would stand good for whatever she needed for her

family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, “Do

you have a grocery list?”

The Lady replied, “Yes sir.” “O.K” he said, “put your

grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery

list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.”

The Lady, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then

she reached into her purse and took out a piece of

paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the

piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still


The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed

amazement when the scales went down and stayed


The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the

customer and said begrudgingly, “I can’t believe it.”

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the

groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did

not balance so he continued to put more and more

groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.

The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he

grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked

at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

“Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in

your hands.”

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered

and stood in stunned silence.

The Lady thanked him and left the store.

The other customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the

grocer and said:

“It was worth every penny of it .. Only God Knows how

much a prayer weighs.”

Never Underestimate The Power Of Prayer..Have a

blessed day!
