Oh good, if you believe in prayer, here's a story for you--not new, but worth repeating:<quoted text> Yes. Not always in the way or in the time we would like.
A kid wanted a bicycle. So he prayed for one, but it didn't come. He prayed some more, and still no hint of a bicycle. So he prayed even harder. Still no bicycle. Finally he decided his prayers for a bicycle would not be answered and he had to take matters into his own hands.
So he went out and stole a bicycle...and prayed for forgiveness.
