A woman was nominated to her church’s evangelization committee. Her pastor, recognizing that she was somewhat shy, emphasized that she should pray before making any house calls to invite people into the church. The following week when the pastor inquired whether her prayers have been answered, the woman replied with relief, “They sure were, Reverend. I prayed that the people wouldn’t be home. And they weren’t.” Now it is our turn to go forth and proclaim the Good News.
