“Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul will keep. If the electrical box blows up before we wake… “
Most parents wish sweet dreams and a great night’s sleep for their children, but this mom prayed every evening that the electric box would not catch fire. It was on its last leg. Several small spark clusters had danced from the box on occasion. The electrician made a visit and informed Mom of the imminent danger. She worked three jobs to make ends meet but three children required a lot of food and money. With every paycheck she put money back to save for a new electrical box, but it would take time. She prayed for that time to be enough.
Out of the mouths of babes the story found empathic ears. Care For Kids secured the electrician and the rewiring for a new, safe electrical box.
And the prayers returned to positive thoughts and peaceful dreams.
