When It's Impossible

I’m pretty sure you’re aware of this, but I’m going to say it plainly anyway:
Prayer can change things.
Even if you don’t feel it.
Even if you’re tired and can’t imagine things ever being any different,
not even in a million years.
Even if, in your heart of hearts, you've already given up
or settled for less than the best.

 The two times He said that in scripture?
 When there was no possible way for a baby to be conceived.
And then life happened anyway.
Seemingly spontaneous.
Except that a big huge God was behind that little miraculous flutter
in the darkest of dark places.
Yeah, that kind of impossible. The kind of too difficult.
Laugh like Sarah, if you must.
Or ponder it in your heart like Mary did.
I don’t care, as long as you pray.
Because our possible God takes virgin territory as well as what’s been left for dead
and creates whole, newborn life.
He can do that in your marriage, too.
Will you let me pray for you and your mate and your household of love?
Be brave to slip your name in the comments.
 I’ll join you and pray for the possible in your impossible right there in the next comment box.
 I’m right behind you.
Take Home: Do you pray for and with your spouse?
