Prayer counts!

This past week has been a very busy and crazy week just as usual. Although, as I went through this week I noticed something different. I didn't just go through the week like normally, nevertheless I went through it with a different mind and perspective. I will lately see people I come across with perhaps while just walking down the street or even driving down the street with a watchful eye and a caring eye. I have never had this sort of feeling before, a feeling of sympathy for each and every person. I was outside earlier this evening watching my siblings play a soccer game. As I stood in the cool breeze I saw cars come and go. People walking and talking. Yesterday as I went out with my brother I came across many different and yet unfamiliar faces. As I walk by these people or face these people I think about them for about one second and the next moment I am in a prayer. God will lay a man, woman, or child on my heart out of the moment and I have such a desire and prompting to pray for them. It is mostly just a minute prayer of, "God, I don't know this person, and I have no clue of what is bothering them. Although, you know it all and I pray that if he/she does not know you that you WILL come into their life!" I can be talking on the phone, or talking to someone and I will stop and just pray for a second. Sometimes I'll say, "But God, I don't know what to pray for?" However, the very next moment I find myself within a prayer and a compassion for this soul. Who knows if that person God laid on my heart wakes up tomorrow morning? Or if they make it home safely? God has specifically told me to do this and who knows if my prayer made a difference today. Pray for the brokenhearted, for the lost, and for the blinded. They are going into this world with no purpose and thus will try to make a smile at you and deep down they're hurting! Your prayer which comes from God will MAKE a difference.

I know that same feeling. As I'm in the car, I can barely help noticing how many need Jesus that are driving or walking by. When I look through pictures, go at the store, I see people so in need of prayer! My only trouble is my prayer list somehow gets larger every time I look outside :) And I remember them by writing "girl on bike with sad face at __ house"
