Pray, and Take an Umbrella – A Story About Faith

A farmer and his family were experiencing a period of extreme drought.

In frustration, the farmer gathered his family around the breakfast table and prayed, “God, please make it rain soon, we so desperately need it to survive.”


After he had finished, the farmer got up from the table and went to leave the house.

“Dad, where are you going?”  His 6 years old daughter asked.

The farmer replied, “I’m going out to inspect the damaged crops.  Why?”

“Take an umbrella,” she advised.

The farmer replied: “don’t be silly,  it hasn’t rained in months; has it?”

“Yes, I know, but we just prayed for rain.  Don’t you believe that God can answer our prayers?” His daughter answered. 


The farmer looked at the umbrella next to the open door. He stared at the cloudless sky.

He looked at his daughter’s innocent face. 

He sensed a voice speaking within him: “It’s great to pray.  It’s better to believe that your prayers can come true.  But what i want is for you to act in anticipation of the miracle that you are after.”


The farmer walked up to his daughter, kissed her on the forehead and then picked up the umbrella on his way out the door, twirling it in his hand as he walked down the path.


Today, I don’t really care about what your prayers are, Or even if you cogitate that they can't come true.

I just want to know.  Are you acting as if your prayers will be answered and there is a miracle in store for you?

Pray, and take an umbrella.  That’s real faith.


A mistake is a signal that it is time to learn something new, something you didn’t know before.

It is easy to stay the same but it is not easy to change. Most people choose to stay the same all their lives.

You’re only poor if you give up. The most important thing is that you did something. Most people only talk and dream of getting rich. You’ve done something.

So go into this week and make a change. Great men don't sleep for long.

When it comes to Excuses, the world is full of great inventors.

Failures are experts at making excuses. There are always enough excuses available if you are weak enough to use them.

You can fall down many times but you won't be a failure until you say that someone else pushed you.

Nearly all failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.

If you are good at making excuses, it's hard to excel in anything else.

Have a very Productive and Profitable week
