Yesterday I prayed that I could have a surprise today.
And I got one. Two actually. So that is an answer to prayer. A check in the "yes" column for the prayer reports.
Unfortunately, both of them were unpleasant. I learned that the pay I get for a job I do regularly will be cut by 66% and I learned that I had been lied to. So technically, yes, I got two big surprises today and therefore, technically, the prayer was answered.
But I'm not exactly delighted with the way it turned out.
