Tiny Miracles: A Child's Prayer

Jesus Christ Messiah-of-God.com

God works in mysterious and often barely noticeable ways, ranging from timing to divine appointments to tiny miracles (that are hardly impressive by many standards) yet still imply God's touch.

A Child's Tiny Miracle

When I was a young and fairly innocent child, I remember asking God to show me that he was real. I told God something like, "I know that you exist, but I just want you to show me that you do." It was an innocent and somewhat illogical request.

I was currently riding in a vehicle with my mother driving. We were going to be stopping at a store where my mother had told me that she was going to buy me my favorite candy as a special treat. This particular candy came with two pieces covered in chocolate.

I told God, "It doesn't matter how you do it, but I want there to be four pieces of candy in the package instead of two." In my mind, it wasn't that I wanted more of the candy, but I just wanted God to show me that he had heard me and responded.

When we arrived at the store, I picked up the first one. Everything was normal about it (there was nothing special or different about the normal package), but when I felt the package, it felt like each pieces was broken. I was doubtful at first, thinking that it was just broken. However, once my mother had purchased the candy, I opened it up to find that it wasn't broken. Instead, there were four mini-versions of the original, with all sides covered in chocolate.

God had answered my prayer.

As a child, I was very excited by this incident, and remember telling my mother and the cashier about my prayer immediately. To this day, this memory of a tiny miracle (that many would think to be insignificant) still reminds me that God hears me and that he cares about me.

I personally believe that God chose to answer this prayer, despite it's silly nature, because he knew this moment would be pivotal in the life of a small child who would grow up to be a servant of his kingdom.
