Come Pray…well… sorta.
A few friends and I have gotten into the habit of randomly calling each other and asking if that person (or group of people) would like to go to a park or a house and pray. It’s odd, because I’ve never done anything like spontaneous prayer until this year, but it’s just a fantastic way to meet in the name of Jesus.
Last night as three friends and I gathered to go to a park and pray we began discussing God’s grace and how it worked into the Law of the Old Testament. We eventually moved on and shared our thoughts and read scripture on topics as clear as God’s grace and as vague as demonic forces. Pretty soon it was two hours later and we had never left the house to go pray!
Even without our original mission being completed, the four of us grew immensely together. Even though some of us were experienced Christians and some were relatively new, every person benefited spiritually. Not only were we all blessed with greater understanding of God and his characteristics, but we bonded extremely well, securing our friendships and defining them by God’s glory.
Spontaneous prayer – try it sometime!
