A very hard-working and poor widow decided to find a way to talk to God.
She called the local radio station and said: “I have a message for God. Could you please send my demand to Him?”
The radio host thought she was joking around and said with laughter: “Be my guest, I will broadcast your message but I won’t promise that God listens to our radio station.”
The widow said: “God please hear my message and help me feed my children and be able to pay my outstanding rents.” She gave her name and address on the broadcast.
A rich man heard her on the radio and said: “What a senseless woman. How could she believe that God listens to the radio and will send her money? Some people are very thoughtless. I can’t take it.”
He asked his employee to buy some food and supplies and also gave a good amount of money and said: “Go to the woman’s address and when she asked who sent the food and money, tell her ‘Satan the devil’ sent her all these goods.”
The employee did as he was told and when he handed everything to the widow, she thanked God for hearing her and helping.
The employee said: “It was Satan who sent you all these great foods, supplies and money.”
She responded: “When God wants to help someone, he will even make the devil do the job.”
