Ben’s friend Toby just found out his parents are getting a divorce. Toby doesn’t go to church, nor do his parents. Ben feels so bad for him, and he doesn’t really know what to say. Ben and Toby have talked about God occasionally, but it has always been a little awkward.
Ben wants to give his friend some encouragement and pray with him, but he is a little nervous. They have never prayed together before, but Ben makes the decision that he will ask God to open the door for him to pray with Toby this week.
That door opens on their way home from school together when Toby says, “I wish my parents would just get along like your parents. Why does it seem as if God doesn’t care if my family falls apart?” Ben senses this is a good time to offer to pray for Toby’s family..
What do you think he should say?
