A few years ago, I met a woman and her family who were staying at a facility where I was. All we said was “hello” but I saw her and her husband and their children regularly over the course of the week. I’ve not seen her again since then…probably because it was over 5000 miles from my home.
My experience tells me that when anybody repeatedly comes to mind, I need to pray for them, so pray I have. When I told my friends about this experience, Beverly told us of a time when God woke her up in the middle of the night and instructed her to pray for Emily. Now the catch is that Beverly didn’t know a single person named Emily.
As we discussed this unusual event and tried to make sense of it, all we could determine is God is seeking our obedience. He does not need my weak and insufficient prayers to help anyone, but I need to be obedient to His voice, whatever it says.
So, dear one, if you happen to read this blog and God reminds you of me or you recognize me, know that I and some of my friends who met you also, have been praying for you. We don’t know what your need is, but we are certain that God does.
And, know that you are loved by us – even if we don’t know your name. Gwen~
