Call 911 for Help . . . And Ice Cream

Call 911 for Help . . . And Ice Cream

By Megan Breedlove

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.

Ephesians 6:18

After I became a 911 police dispatcher I discovered people call 911 for all different reasons other than an emergency.

One lady called demanding that an officer bring her ice cream. Another wanted to report that her pizza had too many peppers on it. People called wanting to know what time it was, when they needed directions, or to ask the lyrics of a song.

There are certain kinds of calls that are not appropriate for 911.  But fortunately, there are no kinds of prayers that are not appropriate for God.

You can pray any time, for any reason.

A test at school?  Not too small for God to care about.

Needing to know what to say to a friend?  Not too small.

Yes, you should certainly come to God with the big things—the things that are God-sized, that only He can make work out right.  But don’t forget to talk to Him about the small things, too.  He cares about everything that’s going on in your life, because He cares about you.

God even cares about ice cream. He must or he would not have made it taste so good. 🙂
