Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face,
She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked
She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work,
John Longhouse, 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
John 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?'
Louise 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.'
Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse
The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales
The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly,
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
The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper
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.
Louise 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.'
THE POWER: When you receive this, say a prayer. That's all you have to do.
Just stop right now, and say a prayer of thanks for your own good fortune.....
I believe if you will send this testimony out with prayer in faith, you will receive what you need God to do in your and your families' life ..
So dear heart, trust God to heal the sick, provide food for the hungry, clothes and shelter for those that don't have as we do..... Tathastu, Tathastu
