WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN WHEN WE PRAY?


I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel  was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled  with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said,  "This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are  received."    

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so  many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps  from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor  until we reached the second section.

The angel then said to me, "This is  the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people  asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them."  I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at  that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged  for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor  we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one  angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment  Section," my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.
"How  is it that there is no work going on here?" I asked.

"So sad," the angel  sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send  back acknowledgments."
"How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I  asked.
"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you,  Lord."
"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.

"If you  have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place  to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.


If you have money in the  bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of  the world's wealthy, and if you get this on your own computer, you are part of  the 1% in the world who has that opportunity ."


"If you woke up this  morning with more health than illness.. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day."
"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of  starvation... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."
"If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you  are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the  world." 

"If your parents are still alive and still married.... you are  very rare."   
"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the  norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair......." 

"OK," I  said. "What now? How can I start?" 
  
The Angel said, "If you can read this  message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you  as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all." 
  
Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all  are.......... 

ATTN: Acknowledgment Dept.
“Thank you Lord, for giving  me the ability to share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people  with whom to share it.” 

If you have read this far, and are thankful for all that you have been blessed with, acknowledge your good fortune. 
I thank God for everything, especially all my family and friends..
