The adventurer lost his way in the desert. Two days ago, a poisonous snake had killed his camel.
Dying of thirst, he raised his open mouth to the blue sky and implored God to save him.
A tiny raindrop fell on his tongue. And then another. It began to rain.
This week I am super busy writing Oliver Colors’ biography, so I will be republishing some choice 50-word stories.

“22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22
Do you go to church?
often 🙂 on Sundays 🙂
On one side, I’d say: Awww! How sweet of God!
On another note, I’d say: this hatted boy is madder than the mad hatter, writing a story like this. Stranded man who was first stranded before running out of water prays for an answer; and in the true spirit of the witty humour found in many of his 50-word stories, the rain came as the solution to a stranded desert-er. Really? Just rain? Vincent!!!
🙂 Lovely words. God answers prayer
I think the surprise here is that everyone is happy…the man and the readers. Ask and you shall receive.
And he knew that God listens…
I still like 🙂
lets hope the lost wanderer gave thanks for the rain, reminds me of my The Man in A Many Miled Race, who also asks for help and receives rain 🙂 uncanny 🙂
