Divine appointment at the gas station

We drove to Corvallis tonight a way that we usually don't because we were almost out of gas. We finally found a place and pulled in, and the attendant came out to fill the tank. I asked him how his day was going and he said "not great".

I asked him why and he said because he had just gotten a DUI on Friday night. He went on to explain the situation in some detail, and when we were done getting gas I asked if I could pray for him. He seemed genuinely moved and said, "That's funny that you would say that. I've been thinking about Jesus a lot today." So he held my hand through the car window and I prayed for him.

So if you have a minute, pray for "Sam." It appears that the Lord is drawing him. I gave him my phone number, and he said he'd call to update me on his DUI situation next week....
