Let’s peek into the story world:
Ruth watched Tony over her water glass. He’d been quiet for most of the meal.
His eyes met hers. Finally he spoke. “You’ve been praying for Silver, haven’t you?”
Ruth’s stomach fluttered. “How did you know?”
“Like I tell the students, I know everything.” He gave his eyebrows an exaggerated wiggle, then his frown deepened. “You’re not angry anymore. Good. But—this is the filth who murdered our niece!”
Tony’s face hardened. “Maybe you should save your prayers for people who deserve them.”
Ruth took a deep breath and willed her voice to hold steady. “I do pray for other people.” She watched his face as he scowled at his steak. “I pray for you.”
Tony’s knife scraped against his plate. “What about? My bad habits?”
“For your protection, and for wisdom in your choices. Mostly, I ask for Jesus to become real to you.”
“Look, just because you buy into this stuff doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.” Tony’s voice softened, and he reached to stroke her arm. “I’m glad you care so much about my life, but I don’t think prayer makes a difference.”
Ruth clutched his hand. “I love you! It tears me apart to think of you living and dying without God. You don’t want me to talk about it, so I pray.”
Stepping out of the story …
