The Time I asked God for a Sports Car


It has been said that God does not answer frivolous prayers, especially for things like a new sports car.  I had a much different experience.

Chapter Twenty  –  The Time I Asked God for a Sports Car

I knew I needed a new car when I could see pavement through the cracks in the floor of my ten-year old Toyota Corolla. This unpretentious vehicle had served me well all these years, until it began to literally fall apart at the seams. Rusted hunks of metal ravaged the once sturdy body.

Now I had my eye on a beautiful, brand new Datsun 200SX on a nearby car lot. It was sleek, black, and out of my price range. It spoiled me for any other car I looked at. “Lord, I’d sure like to own that car,” I prayed…….

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
