She was lost in prayer
The 💯 STORY CHALLENGE is about learning to pray.
When was the last occasion she prayed? Certainly, never during her hedonistic days at university. While living at her mum and dad’s home, she avoided Church whenever possible. It required huge parental pressure to drag her to Sunday services, and the proceedings passed her by without the slightest sense of closeness to God. Maybe as a younger child, her group leader at church school taught her to reach out beyond this worldly prison. Now she needed to rediscover feeling love for someone or something capable of producing a miracle. If she could, avoiding the crowded hospital corridors to locate this secluded spot would have proven worthwhile. But it shouldn’t be like this. A primary schoolteacher’s job should be easy. Then a missile reached her children before she arrived that day. So, during 2022 prayers in Ukraine had become a renewed necessity.
