What a cool story:
A Georgia teenager wrote a letter to God and then sent it to the clouds attached to helium balloons – and was shocked this week when she received a response.
The 18-year-old teen girl, Mykehia Curry, was inspired to write a letter to God about her financial situation. She's planning to attend college.
“God help me go to college. God this is me again, please help me get everything I need to leave Wednesday. I love you, Amen,” the letter read.
Mykehia will be the first person in her family to attend college, but she needed a few things, including a refrigerator, a comforter and school supplies.
So she wrote a letter to God and attached it to three balloons, never thinking it would be read by anyone. God apparently had other plans.
Jerome Jones, a part-time minister, found the letter Monday on a construction site. “It was God calling me saying, ‘You need to answer this,’ and I did,” Jones told WMAZ-TV.
"This is the confidence which we have [before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him." (1 John 5:14-15)
Have you ever "sent a prayer up" and God answered it in a powerful.. even surprising way?
