Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (1871) is a famous children’s novel by Lewis Carroll.  In this classic children’s book, we are introduced to Alice and host of other characters including Tweedledum and Tweedledee and Humpty Dumpty among others. In this fantasy land called Wonderland, Alice has this interesting conversation with the Queen of Hearts.

Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

WOW!  This is a fairy tale, but I daresay I hadn’t had much practice so I determined to pray Six Impossible Things before Breakfast!   Then I invited several others to do the same – it has become a part of my life – a part of my faith in God –  for what we feel is impossible.

With man, this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. God is the God of the impossible. In fact, if He were able to do only what’s possible, then what kind of god would that be.  But no, He is the God of the impossible.

I have been asked, “Does it work?”  I have to smile at that question because the answer brings me to another question. What in your life seems impossible? Are you truly willing to pray for impossible things? Are you truly willing to trust God for an answer?  I’m not talking about asking God for a brand-new car or to have a life of luxury.  No, the question is “Are you willing to be in total surrender to God’s will for your life and ask him to take it and make it new?” If the answer is “Yes, I am willing” then start this amazing journey to see how praying for impossible things and faith in Jesus Christ make an eternal difference.
