This is not about my Boss. Neither it is about why she was rushed to the hospital. This is about what I said to her.
She was rushed to the hospital two days ago. She was in pain. Actually, she’s in pain for quite some time now. She’s becoming weaker and weaker everytime. I am sure what happened to her saddened everyone in the office. Everyone knows her condition.
She’s a good boss. Workaholic at that. I heard she’s still getting in touch with my superiors coordinating important matters while she’s in the hospital.
I was busy doing my errands when they brought her to the hospital. It wasn’t that I was insensitive that time or that I care less that I was not able to know what is happening or what had caused her emergency. Just that things had happened very fast.
It was lunch time when I got the chance to send her a text message:
“Hello po, Boss. I hope ok na po kayo. Pagaling po kayo mabuti.” (“Hello, Boss. I hope you are ok. Get well soon.”)
I wasn’t expecting that she’ll reply because I know she cant because of her condition. I understand. But she replied despite:
“Thanks, John. Please pray for my healing. God bless.”
I knew immediately what I had to say, wholeheartedly:
“My prayers are with you po, Boss. God Bless po.” (My prayers are always with you, Boss. God bless you.)
After that, I haven’t heard anything about her. I was in Tagaytay for a week for an official business so I dont know what’s happening in the office, nor about her condition.
It was Tuesday, three days ago, when I got a message from her:
“John, I will be discharged na. Thanks for your prayers 🙏😊”
I felt so much joy while reading her message, not only because she’s already well, but also because God, indeed, do listen to the prayers of His children.
“Yeeeeey! So happy to know that, Boss. God is really good. Take care po.”, I texted her..
Although I have not received a reply after that, I knew she’s well and God is with her.
It is not about what I said to her that is important. What is important is our belief in the power of prayer. What I said is nothing compared to what God can do when we pray to Him.
Prayers bring joy. Prayers bring hope. Prayers heal. Prayer gives us peace of mind. Prayers bring us closer to God. Prayer is so powerful that even the most impossible thing becomes possible.
The Bible says,
Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. (James 5:13 , NIV)
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. (1 John 5:14, NIV)
And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. (1 John 5:15, NIV)
