Ok, this blog post is not going to be everyone’s cup of sweet tea. For the prayer warriors or just the passionately curious folks, I hope it fills your spiritual arsenal with heavenly hope.
For those that don’t know, my sister has been appointed the family grocery shopper. Once a week she shops for two households. She is our family essential worker and we are so thankful for her! So, last week she picks up my list with money and we joked about the Hunger Games as she left.
Well, about forty minutes later I’m in my kitchen doing dishes when this foreboding feeling came over me. The urgency to pray hit me hard. I kept thinking, Lord Jesus who and what am I suppose to pray for? Everything was fine in my immediate environment and I kept questioning God, what am I to pray for? Then, my eyes seen two books I had just finished reading earlier in the week (Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare Manual & Demon Hit List, both by; John Eckhardt). So, I pick up Demon Hit List and randomly open it. My focus instantly falls upon the heading name, Resentment. The urgency to pray was intense. I just dropped to my knees in the kitchen and asked the Holy Spirit to lead me. I prayed in the Spirit for about fifteen minutes until I felt a lightness and the urgency to pray left. As I’m getting off my knees my phone rings and it was my Sister.
My Sister was sitting in her vehicle at a store parking lot very upset. Seems that as she was checking out with her mask on, the cashier with no mask sneezed in her hand. My sister instantly said, I don’t want a receipt. The cashier laughed and said, “Oh, that was just allergies!” Then, hatefully, the cashier shoves the receipt into the bag(which was actually my bag😲). This is the point when the customer behind my sister with no mask decides to start laughing. Words were exchanged and my sister leaves visibly upset. The customer follows her out and keeps the verbal exchange going. My sister invited her to take it to a physical level and after several more verbal exchanges the other customer left. Wow! That could have ended so different. I know beyond the shadow of any doubt that prayer works!
My Sister; My sister is finishing up college and near the end. A physical altercation with that other woman could have taking away all her hard work and completion of future goals. “Just walk away from drama!”
Me; When I feel the urgency to pray, I’m immediately praying! I don’t need to know all the what’s, who’s and why’s at all times. 💞🙏
