Where the world comes to study the Bible

Misdirected Prayers

A friend of Pastor Jack Lewis’s was enrolled as a student at Central Washington University. He was a devout Muslim and prayed 5 times daily toward Mecca. He and some other Muslim friends were together one day. His other friends weren’t as devout, and were kidding him about his devotion to religious duty. One asked which direction he prayer in, and he pointed north. Then a horrified expression crept over his face as it dawned on him that now Mecca wasn’t north, as it was in his home town in Arabia, but east. For months all his prayers had been misdirected.
