My God shall supply in all your needs according to His riches in Jesus

Phillipians 4:1

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.

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 just as soon as I can.'

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

Louise , 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 bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales
went down and stayed down.

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

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 OF PRAYER: 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.
Then please send this to all your friends and relatives.

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. Amen & Amen

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.

There is no cost but a lot of rewards.

May you always walk with Him!!

God Bless!
