For the past weeks, Anahi in her evening prayers has been asking for the sun to come out the next day. Almost every prayer in the evening ends with this personal request to God.
Last night while it was raining and I could hear the winds outside, she asked me this question: Daddy, do you want sun or rain tomorrow?. I am not sure I replied, towhich she insisted that I be honest and pick one option. Ok, I would prefer sunshine tomorrow.
So she prayed, God, I ask that tomorrow you bring a beautiful sunshine over our city, in the name of Jesus amen. I kissed her goodnight and walked out of her bedroom. I could not stop thinking about her request and how naturally she talked to God. She honestly believes God will change the weather with her request. I was astonished and somewhat ashamed of my grown up lack of faith.. . . so while the winds were raging and the rain was pouring out, I went to bed thinking about my daughter’s prayer.
I woke up got ready for the day and I was lost in my thoughts for the day, when this morning I pulled into Encarnacion, at about 7:30 am, the first rays of sun rose over the city. I remembered Anahi’s prayer last night.
Anahi taught me another important lesion when it comes to asking God for specific things.
