Prayer is the perhaps the greatest last frontier of the Christian faith. Though abundant in spiritual richness and treasure, it remains largely unexplored territory. Does God answer prayer as He did for Joshua or for Jesus? How many of us have sent up a request that was never answered? I think most hands will go up on that one. So, what's the secret-sauce to getting answers to prayer? And what's the deal when less important requests, like money for a church parking lot, are answered, but sincere petitions for the sick and dying are not? Those are hard questions, but legitimate ones. Provisions doesn't attempt to answer all of them, but it does provide a fresh experience and encouraging evidence that God is still hearing us .....and answering! Provisions is the true story of a man and his family who trusted in God to provide, literally, their daily bread. Venturing farther into the unexplored territory of prayer and trust than most, what they report is mesmerizing, and much like the experience of Europe almost one-hundred fifty years ago watching Livingstone, Burton, Speke, and Baker disappear into undergrowth of "the dark continent" or launch onto the uncharted currents of the Nile river. Upon their return, Europe was gripped by each explorer's account, and their discoveries revealed the mysteries of Africa. Now, the Meeks have emerged from three decades of braving the wilderness of prayer with an inspiring, sometimes even difficult to believe, account of what they saw, experienced, and learned living in daily reliance on God. Provisions is not a theological treatise; it is a true story. Beyond a religious theory, here is a life lived in the milieu of trust and obedience. Provisions is an unfiltered, unapologetic, candid account of what happened out there that, in the end, supports the conviction that God is very near. Though it does not address every circumstance, Provisions fuels hope that He is engaged. It adds details to the map for those who will aspire to or are called to go deeper into the mysteries of communion and communication with God. This story effervesces with hope, inspiration, and insight for the large numbers of communities and individual explorers of prayer who are greatly needed because there are still vast, unexplored spaces.
