Dear Hal

Dear Hal

SEPTEMBER 29, 2023

God will answer your prayers…even if you get his name wrong.

Dear Hal, the little boy prayed.

Hal, his father asked? That’s his name, the boy said. You prayed, our Father, Hal would be your name.

I would have told him Jesus’ name is Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, Everlasting Father, Mighty God. And then I think I would add, but because he loves you a lot, he will answer you, even if call him Hal.

Scripture says before you speak, I will answer. And if you’re a little boy, that’s true, even if you get the name wrong,

I’m Steve Brown. You think about that.
