Tiny Miracles: A Child's Prayer
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
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
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.
