I'm not sure if you've ever done this, but it's something I do all the time: Pray for strangers. It could be a homeless person on the street; a mother with a cart full of groceries with her child throwing a tantrum; or an ambulance that passes me on the side of the road with all the sirens and lights flashing. And I find myself praying.
It's not hard to do and takes just a few moments, but I feel so much better and I actually feel like I've done something in a helpless situation. It also helps that I've been in a couple of those scenarios -- screaming kids in a shopping cart and a patient in an ambulance. I'm so thankful that someone was praying for me -- someone that I've never met, but I've felt their prayers.
Today, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Miracles and the Unexplainable releases in bookstores near you. My story is titled: "Prayers for a Stranger." This is the fifth time one of my stories has made it into the Miracle series. My life has been a series of miracles, one after another. Many times, there's been no plausible explanation for what has happened, except God intervened in my life and made Himself known.
Sometimes we pray for a stranger and find out that person isn't a stranger after all. You'll enjoy this collection of miracles and the unexplainable.
Expect the unexplainable!
