Second, I love the symbolism woven throughout.
Third, the concept of prayer boxes is a beautiful thing. One character keeps a box full of written prayers for every year of her life after meeting Christ.
Fourth, the story of an elderly woman teaches much to the younger woman. I love it when generations mix for the benefit of all.
Fifth, people help people. In today’s crazy-busy world, we’ve lost the art of seeing people and moving to meet their needs. This week, I’ve experienced this first-hand as I recovered from surgery. People I never expected to give me a second thought have offered help and prayers and concern for me and not only is this encouraging, but it can be life-changing. The Prayer Box artfully displays this phenomena through engaging characters who make me want to “see” others more and better and then reach out with a helping hand.
