" My friend brother Tan XX XXX stay in Melaka General Hospital ICU ward in serious condition,wish everybody spend a minute to pray for him for recovery Thks, Boon."
I received this SMS message from a good friend on last Saturday evening, while i was in the middle of church service, how should i pray for him, i was asking myself, recovery? getting out of danger? pray that his loved ones would be strong in this time of difficulty? seriously i didn't know... i just closed my eyes and i said this prayer," Lord, you know best, so let your will be done in this situation"
You might blame me for my indifference in such a situation, you might even scold me, how could i not pray for his recovery and for some kind of miracle when hope is fast diminishing, how could i not feel for his loved ones?
Regarless, let put my faith aside, let us assume that we all believe in the same God that i call the Father In Heaven, we all know that life is vulnerable and life is of HIM. I was thinking to myself, if i were to be in that same situation lying in the ICU, with every minute of life slipping away, and if i could pray, how should i pray? God, give me one more chance, God, now is the time to perform your miracle but what if all that you pray for is not the true intention of GOD, would we begin to hate HIM?
I am sorry but this what i really feel, if we could say that we trust the Father in Heaven in everything we do then why can't we have faith that the ultimate result comes from HIM even it is way too far from what we pray for?
So to Tan XX XXXX, i pray that you are in God's good hands and this is true...
P/S : I am still learning to increase my faith in HIM everyday of my life
