Two friends found themselves stranded on a deserted island after rough weather while sailing. With no people living on the island, they were left helpless and turned to prayer for hope. The first friend found fruit-bearing trees near him, while the second had to survive with what he could find.
Days passed, and the first friend prayed for a girlfriend. Miraculously, another boat arrived on the island, and a girl landed just like they did. The first friend was ecstatic to have found company. He continued to pray, and in the next few days, a boat arrived with groceries that would last them for a month or two.
Feeling grateful for all his prayers being answered, the first friend prayed for a ship to come and take them back home. Soon after, they saw a ship in the distance. The first friend was about to board the ship when he heard a voice of God asking him why he had not taken his friend, who was also stranded on the same island. It was then revealed to him that it was not his prayers that had been answered but his friend's. His friend had been praying for his welfare all along.
This story teaches us the value of prayer and the impact it can have on our lives. Sometimes we may think that we have everything we need because of our prayers, but it could be the prayers of others that have made it possible. It is important to appreciate the people who pray for us and to pray for the well-being of others as well.
In conclusion, this story reminds us of the power of prayer and the importance of being grateful for the blessings we have in our lives. Let us all pray for the welfare of mankind and appreciate the prayers of those around us.
