Credit, Bailouts ... and Prayer.

Everything affects everything else. Someone borrows – or lends – imprudently, and ultimately, cumulatively, people lose their jobs and their houses and their health insurance.

When you or I listen to God, when we pray, when we choose faith and obedience, it doesn’t only affect us and the people right around us. Everything affects everything else. The person who prays is like an underground river that causes springs to appear unexpectedly and vegetation to sprout up in unlikely places. (see Ezekiel 47) There is so much more than you can see.
