Prayer: was I delusional, wishful, correct or none of the above?

I had had it w/ my boyfriend of 2 yrs, sobbing on a rainy night. I walked around a 24 hr store lost and confused, praying God to show me that if not my current boyfriend, then who? I actually prayed that if I got in my car and started driving that we would get into an accident (not an injuring one) the very moment I left store. I prayed so specifically b/c I couldn't stand what I considered God's silence anymore, even though I really was making my own decisions. No sooner than I was block from the store, I noticed a car about to cross my path, not apparently slowing while I neared the intersection/stoplight. He didn't stop until he was well w/in the middle of the intersection. I was only a few feet from his side door area while we were stopped there for a moment. That could have banged up the cars some. I was in awe, and I couldn't tell what his face meant. Still, I honked out of irritation, he drove on and I haven't seen him since. Am I crazy to think anything of it, at all?

Update:

I didn't make the mistake driving. He did. He ran the red light.

    Your mind was in a bad place at the moment. Prayer didn't cause this to happen. When one is distraught, the mind wanders. You're lucky you weren't in a bad accident. It's best not to drive when your mind is like that.

  • I have to tell you that you are not crazy, and it is not a coincidence either. I have been a servant of Christ for a while and it never ceases to amaze me how often people pray for something specific, get it, then doubt it. I still do it so don't feel alone. I ask my friends all the time if I am crazy!! All it means is that God is listening and there was you answer. Still, you don't need to ask for an accident for a sign. If anyone is making your life miserable then you need to move on. Our lives are gifts and precious. If we/ you are desperately seeking a boy friend then maybe your asking the wrong question? Why the desperation? Is there something more important missing in your life? How is your relationship with a. God and b. yourself? Typically I have found that when it come to being desperate for relationships its because one or the other is lacking. I am speaking from my own experience and the experience of others. But hey, who am I to tell you about yourself? I just hate to hear you were crying. I pray that the Lord continues to hear your prayers and comforts your lonely heart.

    None of the above. You wanted it so much that you were manifesting the thought in real life. Try praying for something else that is not so much in your control eg. winning a lottery etc

    It sounds like you shouldn't have been driving in the emotional state you were in.

    Sounds like this should be testimony instead of a question... God Bless you and I think it is correct...

    There is no such thing as coincidence. God was trying to get your attention. Did it work?
