I had the opportunity to participate in the Spring Ladies Day at America’s Keswick with Liz Curtis Higgs recently. As Liz gave an invitation at the end, I was one of several women available to pray with the women that came forward.
As I stood there, I noticed an older woman (probably in her mid to late 80s) slowly move forward with her walker. I wrapped my arm around her and asked if she would like prayer. She nodded yes. I asked how I could pray for her – no response. I asked again, hoping for some clue as to how I could pray for her – still silence. I asked if she knew Jesus. She replied, “I thought I did. I go to church. But now I don’t know.”
I shared a simple gospel message of sin, repentance and the blood of the cross. Then I asked if she would like to pray. She nodded, closed her eyes and said, “Lord, I’m an old lady. I don’t want to miss being with You.” She prayed. I wept.
What a sweet God moment. Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a part of it.
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
I hope this blesses your heart today.
