Last Spring, a fellow member of my prayer group and I did a prayer walk on our friend's street. She had had a new next door neighbour who was wreaking havoc in the neighbourhood. She was phoning the police or Children's Aid on just about everybody. And she phoned the bus company to complain about my friend's bus which she parked in her driveway. The very day after we prayed for our friend, her neighbour announced she was moving!
Not that I will be praying for everyone to move away, but I will pray for peace to reign on our street and on every street in Brantford. If more people resorted to prayer rather than fighting or whining and complaining, we would be a lot better off. May Brantford truly be the City of God!
