Is it possible for the Devil to overhear one of your pleas to God and prank you? I suspect that this is what happened to me. It seemed like a prayer answered sarcastically or maliciously.
I'm sure he can hear any plea spoken out loud. I doubt he can read minds. But even if he can, you are entrusting your prayer and the issues about which you pray to God. I don't know how much freedom Satan is allowed in his attacks on us, but certainly he has no more freedom than God allows. Ultimately, God holds all the cards and we can confidently bring our concerns to Him.
Would you be interested in sharing what specifically has happened? I'm curious, but if it's something you'd rather not share, I don't want to pry.
Oh Theo Fane, I am so sorry for you. I know that doesn't help one bit! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. You were brought into Susan's life for the sake of HER, not you - at this point in time. Hang in there. You seem like a good person and good things will come.
I think I'll have many, many years to contemplate what happened to me in the summer of 2011. I may never get the answers I'm looking for until my life is over. And once my life is over, there's no guarantee I can lean on that says I'll see her again in the Kingdom of Heaven. I don't even have the certainty that there is a Kingdom of Heaven or a God who sits enthroned in the middle of it all. Is it possible that there are levels of Heaven, innmermost layers of Heaven for those who were closest to God in life? The first shall be last, and the last shall be first! Susan was definitely one of the last.
Sometimes it like the Holy Spirit is telling me what to write ....
