Prayer Ambassadors Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are back this holiday season, along with their newest protégée Will. It’s New Year’s Eve, and Lucie Ferrara and Aren Fairchild exchange a kiss in Times Square due to a little unsolicited help from Will. Immediately sparks fly and the couple spends the rest of their night getting to know each other. Rather than exchanging numbers, the two agree to meet seven days later at the top of the Empire State building. Sadly, Lucie never shows up, leaving Aren wondering where he went wrong.
Despite Lucie and Aren having already met rather than according to God’s timetable, the angels feel confident they can get them back on track. As Lucie devotes her time making her restaurant Heavenly Delights a huge success, Aren is busying establishing himself as the anonymous food critic at the New York Gazette. When Aren’s assignment brings him to Lucie’s doorstep, the angels interfere once again in hopes of reigniting the couple’s budding romance. Yet due to Lucie’s demanding schedule that night, the two never meet.
