Prayer

County music star Josh Turner tells a story of how he came to meet Johnny Cash. He told USA Weekend that he had been reading about Cash’s illness and wanted to meet him and encourage him. He found out where Cash lived and went to drop in and hoped he would not be seen as a stalker. He knocked on the door and Johnny answered the door himself. Josh asked if they could talk and the music legend mentioned that he could not talk long because he had been very ill. As they talked Josh mentioned that he had been praying for him. Cash reached out his hand and shook Josh’s and said, very sincerely, “Your prayers are appreciated.” Josh left that day with tears in his eyes. It doesn’t matter how famous, talented or wealthy you are, if you are having hard times, prayer is appreciated.
