Right place at the right time?

I've been reading a piece on Prayer by Phillip Yancey asking one simple question: "does prayer make any difference?" Is answered prayer the result of coincidence or the responsive actions of an omnipotent God? We'll talk more about this later, but I found a story this morning illustrating being in the right place at the right time. A postal worker was delivering mail when she saw a baby about to fall from a second floor window. The baby did fall - right into the postal worker's arms. The funny part is that wasn't the postal worker's regular route. On another day, she would've been in another part of town (click here to read the full story). Hmmmmmm. Was this the action of God or a coincidence of timing? That's a question of faith and one that really, only you can answer for yourself.
