This morning my team felt led to go to Steak and Shake. There were numerous servers standing around because it had not gotten busy yet. I noticed one of their names was Jonah. I found it curious that last month brought to mind Jonah, as Aaron was about his age and I got to spend the morning with him. I asked the team to lift my Jonah up in prayer.
As we were leaving, two women asked me to come to their booth. They requested prayer for one of the ladies in their Sunday School class who was unable to return home and refusing to go to the nursing home. I prayed peace that surpassed all understanding and for her to view this as an opportunity to be the light in that environment instead of seeing it as a hinderance.
We left the restaurant and headed to Ballard Park. I was able to pray for two women. One was about to begin working full time and leaving her child at daycare for the first time and another was concerned as her sister was having to return a foster child back to it’s biological family. She explained the biological family was ok, but was not the best of circumstances. I prayed for comfort and for the Lord to open a door so the foster family could continue ministering not just to the foster child but to the child’s entire family.
When we began sharing testimonies back at the church, one of the men from Broken Lives Ministry got up and had the rest of the residence stand beside him. He thanked the ministry for hitting the streets and offering hope to those who seemed hopeless. He stated they were results of this type of work and ministry! What a beautiful picture! Amen?
