Louise Redden,
a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her
walked into a grocery store.
She approached the owner of the store

in a most humble manner and asked
if he would let her charge a few
She softly explained that her husband was very ill and
unable to work,
they had seven children and they needed food.
Longhouse,the grocer,
scoffed at her and requested that she leave his
Visualizing the family needs,
she said:
"Please, sir!
I will
bring you the money just as soon as I can."
John told her he could not
give her credit,
as she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the
conversation between the two.
The customer walked forward and told the
grocerman that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her
The grocerman said in a very reluctant voice,
"Do you have a
grocery list?
Louise replied,
"Yes sir."
"O.K." he said,"put your
grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs,
I will
give you that amount in groceries."
Louise, hesitated a moment with a
bowed head,
then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of
paper and
scribbled something on it.
She then laid the piece of paper
on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.
The eyes of the
grocerman and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down
and stayed down.
The grocerman staring at the scales,
turned slowly to
the customer and said begrudgingly,
"I can't believe it."
The customer
smiled and
the grocerman started putting the groceries on the other side
of the scales.
The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and
more groceries
on them until the scales would hold no more.
grocerman stood there in utter disgust.
he grabbed the piece
of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.
It was
not a grocery list,
it was a prayer which said:
"Dear Lord,
you know my
needs and I am leaving this in your hands."
The grocerman gave her the
groceries that he had gathered and placed on the scales and stood in
stunned silence.
Louise thanked him and left the store.
The customer
handed a fifty-dollar bill to John as he said,
"It was worth every penny
of it."
It was sometime later that
John Longhouse discovered the scales
were broken;
only God knows how much a prayer weighs.


When you receive this, say a prayer. That's all you have to do.
stop right now,
and say a prayer for the one who sent this to you. There
is nothing attached.
This is powerful.
Then send this to four people.
Don't break this, please.

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.
There is no cost but a
lot of rewards.
Let's continue praying for one another.
