Lost and Found

I don’t often gush over my faith, but today God heard my plea and He gladly answered a simple prayer.

“God, Ben has to be found today. Amen”

I know I wasn’t the only person praying. God heard all the prayers.

Ben is a 13 year old boy that was abducted Monday after he got off his school bus and was walking the 500 feet to his home. He live less than an hour from my house.

Not only did the officers find Ben, they also found Sean who has been missing for over four years.

I cried out, “Thanks be to God!” and tears rolled down my face when the breaking news came on the television.

I’m so thankful these two boys will be returned to their families. Along with my relief I am scared. I’ve looked at my children and prayed for God to keep them safe. I gave them a huge stranger-danger lecture.

I will continue to pray for Ben and Sean, there’s no telling the trauma they have been through. I’ll pray that they will become better men and husbands and fathers because of this awful thing that happened to them. I’ll pray for their families that they will be able to live without constant fear of loosing their son again. Lastly, I’ll pray for justice to be served to the people responsible.

Thank You Father for hearing my prayer!
