Topic: Like a Fish Out of Water (10/24/13)

TITLE: Out of my Comfort Zone

Observing people as I am waiting again at the airport;
Under stress those souls are busy running to and fro;
Taking a moment I always silently pray for them.

Odd thing happening now—one held out his hand,
"Forgive me, sir, but I really need some help right now."

"My daughter is very sick, and I am hoping you will allow—"
"You are hoping that I will allow you to ask me to pray for her."

"Correct. God spoke to me a dream—I knew you would be here."
"Our God is great, and yes I will come and pray for your daughter."
"May the Lord shine upon you, my new friend, my name is Peter."
"Forgive my cold hand, Peter. My name is Jonathan, just a servant."
"Oh, my friend, you are more than a servant, you are blessed man."
"Remember, Peter, it is more blessed to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35 KJV)
Taking up all of my luggage and tablet and things, we made our leave.

Zipping out of the airport, Peter swiftly drove to his humble abode.
Out of my comfort zone, I stepped into his daughter’s little pink room.
Never before had I delayed a business trip to go and pray for the sick:
Extending our hands out, Jesus answered our prayers without a hitch.

Very Creative!
You used a poetry technique, but also dialogue and narrative - interesting.
It was a little hard to tell which character was speaking sometimes, but otherwise, it was well written.
