Answering their Questions

Wondering if you’ve had one of those moments when a friend who knows that you are a Christian, asks you one of those tough questions out of the blue, and how you’ve resonponded 

This happened to me recently.  I went out to dinner with the girls, and one said her husband doesn’t believe that prayer makes a difference.  She looked at me asked what I would have said. 

I almost chocked on my sushi.  I struggled at first, and then said, it's about the story; lives that have been transformed, and prayers that have been answered. Then I told her, maybe we should start praying for something that he wants in his life and see what happens.

Not sure that was the right thing.  

What would you have said?

Beth on Facebook had a good idea:  “have them pray about something together and see what happens”

Then Erica said, she would introduce him to her husband because he is living proof that prayer works. 

He was critically injured in Afghanistan in September and doctors said he would never run again, never chase their kids around the yard.  But he's running anyway, and doctors can’t explain it.  He is more than a year ahead of schedule on his recovery.  They can’t explain why, but Erica can.  Lots and lots of prayer.

We actually have something cool for you, if you’re getting some of those questions.  For example, "what’s the big deal with Easter?  What’s good about good Friday?"

There are Easter e-cards you can send to your friends that are asking you questions.
