..."Answered Prayers"...

A
voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men
on it were able to swim to a small, desert like island. The two
survivors, not knowing what else to do, agreed that they had no other
recourse but to pray to God. However, to find out

whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.

The first
thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a
fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its
fruit. The other man's parcel of land remained barren.


After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only
survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island, there was nothing.

Soon the first
man prayed for a house, clothes, more food. The next day, like magic,
all of these were given to him. However, the

second man still had nothing.

Finally, the
first man prayed for a ship, so that he and his wife would leave the
island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at

his side of the island.

The first man
boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on
the island. He considered the other man unworthy to receive God's
blessings, since none of his prayers had been answered. As the ship was
about to leave, the first man heard a voice from heaven booming, "Why
are you leaving your companion on the island?"


"My blessings
are mine alone, since I was the one who prayed for them," the first man
answered. "His prayers were all unanswered

and so he does not deserve anything."

"You are
mistaken!" the voice rebuked him. "He had only one prayer, which I
answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my
blessings."


"Tell me," the
first man asked the voice, "What did he pray for that I should owe him
anything?" "He prayed that all your prayers be answered."


For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but those of another praying for us.
