Isn’t God’s timing truly amazing!
Isn’t God’s timing truly amazing! I woke up this morning at 3 AM and could not go back to sleep so I got up and started to pray the rosaries for everyone I know.
After I finished, I noticed a text message had just arrived from a dear friend and mighty Prayer Warrior. His dad had just received the Anointing of the Sick and Holy Communion for the second time in his life.
Within the last week, his dad, an avowed atheist, desired to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and the Anointing Of the Sick. It was a true miracle of God’s grace and mercy.
Starting at 7:30 AM a group of 6 Prayer Warriors were praying in front of our local Planned Parenthood clinic that God would bless every person driving by. Out of the blue I felt the Holy Spirit inspire me to suggest we dedicate a rosary to my friend’s dad and his family.
After Mass, when I got home, I noticed a voice mail message from my friend. The time was 8:16, the moment we finished praying. My friend’s dad went to heaven at 6:50 AM.
Last Saturday I told my friend I wanted to pray a couple of rosaries with him and his dad before he passed away. I wonder if my friend and his family members were just finishing their rosary for him at the time we started praying. I will find out tomorrow.
God’s timing is always perfect. Sometimes it is hard to hear His voice. Often it is even more difficult to say, “Yes.” In this situation, it was a slam dunk. Reality and eternity converged at this moment in time as we all celebrated my friend’s Dad’s journey home to our final eternal destination.
