I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.
My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, ‘This Is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are Received.’
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section. The angel then said to me, ‘This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them.’
I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the Door of a very small section. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. ‘This is the Acknowledgment Section,’
My angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.
‘How Is it that there is no work going on here?’ I asked.
‘So sad,’ the angel sighed. ‘After people receive the blessings that they asked For, very few send back acknowledgments.’
‘How does one acknowledge God’s blessings?’ I asked.
‘Simple,’ the angel answered. Just say, ‘Thank you, Lord.’
‘What blessings should they acknowledge?’ I asked.
‘If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy .’
‘And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.’
‘ If you woke up this morning with more health than illness … You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day .’
‘If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation .. You are ahead of 700 million people in the world.’
‘If you can attend a ceremony without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people In the world’
‘If your parents are still alive and still married …you are very rare .’
‘If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you’re unique to all those in doubt and despair.’
OK, what now? How can I start?
If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you want, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are.

Thank you so much for this lovely poem on in The Acknowledgement Dept.
Thank you Lord for this lovely website for assisting us and reminding us of Your Omnicience, Grace, Mercy and Love.
Thank you for sharing this story/poem…. I’m SOOOO grateful that i happend to come across this.. i honestly can’t even tell you where it came from.. but all i know is this picture of all these Angels showed up on my phone screen.. with the title “WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN WHEN WE PRAY..” So, i decided to click on it.. And all i can say is that It opened my heart & my eyes, as well.. This was EXACTLY what i needed to hear at exactly the right time!! This couldn’t have been timed any better!! I can relate. And i am SOOOO thankful/grateful for my family!! I always pray for them, that God will let them live a long healthy life!! And to please give them the strength and the courage, and his will – for them to get through every day! I pray that God relieves my Mom & my Dad from any AND ALL pain & all the hurt that they have carried around inside of their hearts, for way too long…. For him to remove ALL the stress, worry, and fear that my mom & my dad might still have. That all of that extra heavy baggage please be taken off their shoulders, because they have been carrying it around for so many years. —-> So, my point here is…. is that i am ALWAYS (and will still continue) praying for my mom and my dad, and my children, and for my sister, as well.. (and everybody else that comes into mind).. And i never even realized how rarely i ever actually THANK GOD for all of my prayers.. whether it be thanking God for all of my answered prayers…. And for my unanswered prayers, as well. Because i am a string believer that everything happens for a reason.. Both Good & bad.. We may not understand why certain things are playing out the way they are- at that certain time. BUT, i know for 100% fact, that EVENTUALLY everything does come into place. Sometimes we don’t ecen realize that it has fallen into place yet.. But, there’s other times, when i just totally get it…. and i understand exactly why i had to go through what i did…. you just have to open your eyes & your heart and accept that our own plans may seem amazing to ourselves – But, once God’s plans play all the way out, it is ALWAYS soooo much better than i could’ve imagined. It all just happens in mysterious ways.. & almost always never makes sense to me. Until i open my eyes and realize that all the stuff i didn’t understand why it was happening — was in fact happening because God new exactly what he was doing with me at that time, to prepare me for the greater outcome!! I Love the original story i just read. I hope that more people can read it as well & it touches them the same as it touched my heart.. And i swear that this story/ poem couldn’t have been brought to my eyes at a better time. It was exactly what i needed to read. Because i now see exactly how blessed that i truly am.. i have taken a lot of prople for granted and felt like here lately that I’ve just been dealt a bad hand. But in reality, i haven’t.. and im so grateful that i was able to read this and see exactly how much stuff and how many people i have in my life, that i am going to THANK GOD for!! Because, i have A LOT to be grateful for.. and the #1 thing i REALLY have to thank him for, is for my loving mother & father. Abd for my beautiful healthy children!!! Thank you God for showing yourself to me, and opening my heart!! Thy will not mine be done. Abd I’m fully trusting in that from now on.and I’m going to be thanking God for every little blessing in my life!!!!â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡â™¡
