This is from my friend Stacy and hey I think it is worth sending on. Enjoy!!!

Who is the Susie in your life?


Come with me
To a third grade classroom..... There is a
Nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and all of
A sudden, there is a puddle between his feet and
The front of his pants are wet. He thinks his
Heart is going to stop because he cannot
Possibly imagine how this has happened. It's
Never happened before, and he knows that when
The boys find out he will never hear the end of
It. When the girls find out, they'll never speak
To him again as long as he

The boy
Believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his
Head down and prays this prayer, 'Dear God, this
Is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes
From now I'm dead

He looks up
From his prayer and here comes the teacher with
A look in her eyes that says he has been

As the
Teacher is walking toward him, a class mate
Named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is
Filled with water. Susie trips in front of the
Teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water
In the boy's

The boy
Pretends to be angry, but all the while is
Saying to himself, 'Thank you, Lord! Thank you,

Now all of a
Sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule,
The boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher
Rushes him downstairs and gives him gym shorts
To put on while his pants dry out. All the other
Children are on their hands and knees cleaning
Up around his desk... The sympathy is wonderful.
But as life would have it, the ridicule that
Should have been his has been transferred to
Someone else -

She tries to
Help, but they tell her to get out. You've done
Enough, you

Finally, at
The end of the day, as they are waiting for the
Bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers,
'You did that on purpose, didn't you?' Susie
Whispers back, 'I wet my pants once

May God help
us see the opportunities that are always around
us to do

Each and
everyone one of us is going through tough times
right now, but God is getting ready to bless you
in a way that only He can. Keep the

This prayer
is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts
we receive. There is no cost but a lot of
rewards. Let's continue to pray for one

Father, I ask
You to bless my friends, relatives and those
that I care deeply for, who are reading this
right now. Show them a new revelation of Your
love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to
minister to their spirit at this very moment.
Where there is pain, give them Your peace and
mercy.. Where there is self-doubt, release a
renewed confidence through Your grace. Where
there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs.
Bless their homes, families, finances, their
goings and their comings.
