Praying in Spanish by Kathy Grimm "Ask for it and it shall be given."
Faith And Prayer As the Lucania was in mid-Atlantic a young man came to the purser and asked him to lend him ten pounds, as he was without money, and every hour was bringing him nearer to London. The purser said he had made it a rule not to lend money and suggested that the young man should borrow from some friend on board. “But I have no friend. The only person who would give me ten pounds is my mother, and she left London for New York the same day as we sailed from New York.” The purser thought for a moment, and then he said, “We may get into speaking touch with the vessel on which your mother is, and then you could ask her to lend you the money by wireless telegraphy.” The next night the young man was roused from sleep with the news that the Lucania was in communication with the boat on which his mother was a passenger. She readily handed a ten pound note to the purser on her ship, and he authorized the purser on the Lucania to give the young man this sum. The vessels were many miles apart in the darkness of the night, and yet the need on the one ship was met by the love on the other. What a light that throws on the force of prayer! “Ask and ye shall receive.” (Text)
