Wednesday night prayer meeting, sounds kind of "old fashioned" doesn't it or does it? Tonight after offering up new prayer requests and reporting on praises, we were given some instructions and then we prayed. This was not just a couple of our men standing and praying, but an entire room of people, probably at least 40 of them, all praying. Praying out loud, at the same time, for the same things. It was awesome!! I had to stop myself from crying so that I could actually be an active participant in the praying. It was an overwhelming and wonderful experience to hear God's people talking to him, petitioning him, not for themselves, but for others, for our community, for our church family, for our country, for the lost. It gives me goosebumps thinking about it now, four hours later. Thinking about it, I am just imagining all those petitions and requests arriving at once in heaven and God just smiling, delighted to hear from us. The unity in our requests, our burden for others, yearning for God's will, those things could make a difference. They could make a difference in our homes, our churches, our communities, our country, and in the Kingdom. I can't wait 'til next week!
