God's work

"...if God really does work in answer to our prayers, whether in common or uncommon ways, it is important that we recognize this and give thanks to him, and that we not ignore it or go to great lengths to devise possible 'natural causes' to explain away what God has in fact done in answer to prayer. While we must be careful not to exaggerate in reporting details of answers to prayer, we must also avoid the opposite error of failing to glorify and thank God for what he has done." (Grudem's Systematic Theology, 358)

And so--I thank God for answering my cry for help on Thursday night. I was scared on the airplane and he answered and moved immediately when I called to him. He answered me and I believe him.
