“God always answers prayer,” said a fellow Gideon to me last week.
I don’t doubt He does, but I wanted to test my friend. “How about the guy I visit in a nursing home who is in constant agony from muscular dystrophy? Many people are praying for him, but he only gets worse.”
Clarence smiled. “He answers prayer in one of three ways – right away, eventually, or in heaven. Is your friend a believer?”
“He is,” I replied.
“Then those prayers for him will be answered in heaven.”
“Good answer,” I said. “I’m praying God will take him soon.”
