Today, I witnessed people be disarmed by the love expressed in one simple question, “Is there something that we can pray about for you today?” My prayer partner Sandy and I had people burst into tears as this question seemed to travel from the ears to their hearts.
Being prayed for by someone is something that I have experienced in a very intimate way with just a couple of handful of people over the course of my walk with the LORD. Sisters and Brothers who were willing to walk with me in my pain, suffering at the hands of my own sins and feeling the pain of true discipline. When I could not stand or cry out for myself, these dear ones carried me and interceded on my behalf.
To reach out and hold the hand of a stranger, who is my fellow human being, and call upon My Heavenly Father and Creator was a privilege. Understanding what it is like to not be able to call upon God and allowing someone else to do so, it was a great place to be.
To pray is to love someone else right where they are.
In His Love,
