    I’ve been asked to stop praying over my food by a waiter. I wasn’t praying loud but, I looked up and seen a man looking hatefully at me so I ignored them both and kept praying my husband said arent you afraide of getting in trouble after I got done? No then I told him about the lions den. I would face death for my faith and nothing less would make me stop praising and praying to God. I’ll let my little light shine till Jesus comes.
