Last night, a young lady told me that she had begun last summer to pray for God to send someone to work with the children who are coming to our church. Last summer... when God turned our world upside down and shook us out of our comfort zone. When He showed us we were living only to serve ourselves and needed to live out what we believe. When He used a series of trials to bring us to totally fall upon His mercy and grace. He told us that our lives needed to be wholly pleasing to him and being Sunday morning Christians was not acceptable. And that is what Faith was praying for. "God, please send someone to work with these children." She saw a need in her community and turned to God to fill it. God does answer prayer. It was nice to get to hear about some of the prayer that sparked the change in our lives; to get a chance to meet someone who was praying for us but didn't even know us.
