Gwyn went with me around town as I recorded sound bytes of people from the community reading the prayers of our community. I was blown away by what was shared and offered to me in doing this. I met people who were going through difficult times, experiencing loss, and finding themselves at the end of broken relationships. I had people read prayers and then thank me because they "needed to pray that." It was such a privilege to minister to our community- without even trying! I never thought that this would have the impact on each person that it did. More than anything, it made people stop and think about praying- no matter where in the journey they are or what sort of journey they are on.
I am praying for each person I had the privilege of connecting with today...
I am praying for Karen and remembering Amanda.
I am praying for the man waiting to be served divorce papers.
I am praying for the lady who has just come out of a bad relationship.
I am praying for the woman who just lost her dog.
I am praying for the 4 year old little boy who just lost his mom to cancer.
I am praying for the guy that has been so wounded by the church.
I am praying for the family that just left their church after 15 years.
I am praying for our community.
