At my wife's request, I just wanted to share with you all just how powerful prayer really is. The other day my family and I were preparing to embark on a very long trip. But before we left, I asked our parish priest to pray for us that we would have a safe trip. So, he prayed over us a beautiful prayer asking Saint Christopher, patron saint of travellers, to protect us on our long trip.
Well, lo and behold, only 50 miles into our trip and we get into a car accident. We were sandwiched in between a car an a concrete medium. We were all flabbergasted and my kids didn't waste a single moment to question the efficacy of our priest's prayers over us. But my wife and I knew just how lucky we were. This accident only ended in a lot of superficial damage and a lost tire, but thank God no one was hurt or killed. If we had been going any faster this story would have had a different ending.
So, I want to publicly thank God, my guardian angel, and Saint Christopher for protecting us. And although it looked like we were driving the Griswold's family car on our trip, we were able to safely get to our destination. So always remember to pray for protection before going on a long trip, because you never know if you will actually get there.
