Praying with strangers can be scary.
“Lord, are you sure about this?”
The prompting of the Holy Spirit, though, is strong.
“Okay, here I go…”
At least, that’s how it’s always been with me. And it happened again today.
I stopped and helped a lady put her car tag on in the Taco Bell parking lot.
Nothing really special about that deed. It took less than 2 minutes. She was excited because it was a new car. I listened to her tale and met her grandkids.
Then it happened.
“Pray with her and bless her new car.” I heard the Holy Spirit loud and clear.
So I did.
Velma (the lady) was very thankful for my prayer. I found out she was a pastor who had a lot of car trouble last year. This car was provision from God.
Wow. God used me to confirm His blessing in her life.
And all because I was willing to get over my nervousness.
I think we need to pray more for people when we’re with them. Writing down there requests and praying later is awesome and necessary.
However, there’s something special that happens when we pray together for that need.
I know that it’s weird, especially if they’re strangers.
We have a great helper in the Holy Spirit. He won’t let you down. If he leads you to do something, listen.
There are many miracles and blessings that are missed when you don’t trust the Holy Spirit’s prompting.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss an opportunity to serve God and help others see him more clearly.
Be bold, my friends, in following the Holy Spirit’s prompting and mighty things will happen.
