Matthew 15:33The disciples said to him, “Where are we to get enough bread in the desert to feed so great a crowd?”
How does God work in the world?
We pray for healing in friends and neighbors. We pray for guidance for our leaders. We pray for strength to guide through the day. But how will God answer our prayers?
Of course we should hope and expect God to give a miraculous response: Healing when modern medicine would fail us. Guidance when we are lost. Strength when tired to exhaustion. Yet I have more often received answers to prayer in help from a stranger, sage advice from a friend, a scientific advancement that had been decades in the making and arrived when needed.
When have you received bread in the desert?
