The Amazing Deck of Cards
It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land
for some reason hadn't been heard. The young
soldier knew it was Sunday. As he was sitting there, he got
out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his
Just then an army sergeant came in and said, "Why
with the rest of the platoon?"
The soldier replied, "I thought I would stay behind and
spend some time with the Lord."
The sergeant said, "Looks to me like you're going to
The soldier said , "No, sir. You see, since we are not
have Bibles or other spiritual books in this
I've decided to talk to the Lord by using this amazing deck
The sergeant asked in disbelief, "How will you do
"You see the Ace, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is
only one God.
The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and
The Three represents the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.
The Four stands for the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke
The Five is for the five virgins there were
ten, but only five
of them were glorified.
The Six is for the six days it took God to create the
The Seven is for the day God rested after making His
The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their
three sons and their wives - the eight people God spared
from the flood that destroyed the Earth.
The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy.
He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him.
The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down
to Moses on tablets made of stone.
The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God's first angels,
but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways
and is now the joker of eternal hell.
The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.
The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings.
When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365
total, one for every day of the year.
There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week - 52
weeks in a year.
The four suits represent the four seasons: Spring, Summer,
Fall and Winter.
Each suit has thirteen cards - there are exactly thirteen
weeks in a quarter.
So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out
this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have
to be thankful for."
The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in
his eyes and pain in his heart, he said, "Soldier, can
I borrow that deck of cards?"
Please let this be a reminder and take time to pray for all
of our soldiers who are being sent away, putting their lives
on the line fighting.
Prayer for the Military.
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands.
Bless them and their families.
I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
