WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN WHEN WE PRAY?

This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen, I don't know who the Author was but it is so true: I Hope You ENJOY IT.

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.  My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the Receiving Section.  Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received."

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section.  Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them."  I noticed again how  busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.

Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing.  "This is the Acknowledgment Section," my angel friend quietly admitted to me.  He seemed embarrassed.

"How is it that there is no work going on here? " I asked.

"So sad," the angel sighed.  "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments."

"How does one acknowledge God's blessings? " I asked.

"Simple," the angel answered.  Just say, "Thank you, Lord."

"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.

"If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.  If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy."

"And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."

"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day."

"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."

"If you can attend a church or synagogue without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death, you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world."

"If your parents are still alive and still married...you are very rare."

"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair......."

Ok, what now? How can I start?

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.

Have a good day, count your blessings, and remember to remind everyone else of how special they are by telling them how blessed you are to have them in your life.

ATTN: Acknowledge Dept.

"Thank you, Lord, for giving me the ability to share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people with whom to share it."

If you have read this far, and are thankful for all that you have been blessed with, how can you not send it on???  I thank God for everything, especially all my family and friends.

Please Feel Free To Add Your Acknowledgments to Your Replies.  God Bless You All Brenda

Nice post, :)  I have read other little articles in this vein that have a room full of riches, blessings and treasures much bigger than any of the other rooms, stacked to the ceilings.  When the angels were asked what this rrom was for they replied, "These are the gifts and blessings God wanted to bestow on you, but was waiting for your request.  They were there for the taking."

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Happy 2011 again!  :)

I've heard this one before but love hearing it again and again. :) What an awesome reminder of just how powerful our prayers are and that God hears and responds to each and every one! Maybe not in our time but His timing is always perfect if we will just be patient and trust.  Thanks for sharing this!
