Illusion Prank- Now You See Him, Now You Don’t

How did the little boy get people's attention?

  • He called out to them and asked them to take his picture.

Why were the people so stunned?

  • The little boy seemed to disappear so quickly.

Was the boy there the whole time?

  • Yes, they just couldn’t see him.

When we answer God's invitation to pray, how can our experience of prayer feel a little bit like the way the boy pranked the people?

  • God gets our attention and invites us to make prayer our priority.
  • When we start to pray, it sometimes feels like God disappears or that He isn’t there.
  • If we stick with it and keep looking, we discover that He was there the whole time waiting for us to find Him. Then, we get to rejoice together!
