Prayers and 300 Sextillion

Prayers are answered. I spoke with Tom yesterday afternoon and he said that he made the call to cancel the divorce. He then sent some flowers to his wife with a note, "I made the call. I want to fight for you." He did not know how she would react ... but then when he got home he finds out the below ...

Thank you for all of your prayers. Many of you sent emails of encouragement. I forwarded those on to him and he said, "those strengthened me and helped embolden me to make that call." 

Please send a thank you to all of the coaches for their prayers. My wife said she did email me to make the call but I never received the prayers did work. My wife is very stressed and unsure, so we have a long road ahead of us, but we took the biggest step. I am now and have been getting to practice what I've always preached about being unselfish. God has also been testing my unconditional love I claimed to have for my wife. I will emerge a better man. I pray we emerge a stronger husband and wife. I will keep you posted.
God bless you,

WASHINGTON – The universe may glitter with far more stars than even Carl Sagan imagined when he rhapsodized about billions upon billions. A new study suggests there are a mind-blowing 300 sextillion of them, or three times as many as scientists previously calculated. 

That is a 3 followed by 23 zeros. Or 3 trillion times 100 billion.
"It's fun because it gets you thinking about these large numbers," Conroy said. Conroy looked up how many cells are in the average human body — 50 trillion or so — and multiplied that by the 6 billion people on Earth. And he came up with about 300 sextillion.

So the number of stars in the universe "is equal to all the cells in the humans on Earth” a kind of funny coincidence," Conroy said.
