needs to decide what he wants to do.
So, I felt on the Saturday after he graduated that I needed to pray for him to find a job. I began the Daniel fast at noon that Saturday. On the Daniel fast I could have fruit,
vegetables, and whole grains like brown rice or quinoa. I also prayed. That Tuesday,
four days later, he went with two friends to apply for work at a new Cracker Barrel
that is opening about 25 miles from us.
I was in the middle of painting a room when he called me. He got hired on

that job in his lap. There is no doubt in my mind. His friends did not get hired.
