Another beaituful time out in the community praying for people we meet. Here's a few stories...
The main one I can remember is a man who was surprisingly receptive, and wanted prayers for not getting sick over the winter. He was really up for chatting about faith and shared about his journey.
We got some nice hugs after praying for people which was nice!
We weaved round the estate and had a number of special encounters. A standout one was being able to pray for some parents who had a small child with them and they had a family member who had died earlier that week. We prayed for peace and that they would know God in their grief. They seemed really touched.
The last person we spoke to was really special. We approached a chap who seemed to have difficulty walking. We asked if we could pray for him and if he had any pain in his body and he replied 'absolutely I would love prayer I have pain all over!' We laid hands on him and he became lost in a sense of peace. After praying we asked him how he was feeling and said 'this is amazing...! yeah' and just seemed to stay in a trance-like state. We had to get back and he seemed quite gutted we had to go! We left him standing there in peace - he may still be there now!
After a lot of polite 'no thank yous', we approached a lady who was trying to get to St Peter's church for a course and couldn't find it! So we were able to help her find her way and pray for her and she was really touched.
We met a chap who was really open. He said he knew Jesus loved him, and we prayed for greater revelation of that. We also got to pray for a Christian lady's son which was special.
