It was another great night of fellowship here for me. I think it's one of the things that the Lord has allowed me to have with Dave's schedule being what it is. I love hanging out with other women, getting to know them, and praying for them. Tonight, a bunch of girls came over for a movie night. It was a lot of fun. We watched "To Save a Life"...I had already seen it, but really enjoyed it a second time. Afterwards, we sat around talking for awhile. I was telling them the story of how God healed my hip at summer conference. One of the other girls mentioned that her hip was bothering her. We ended up asking to pray for her. The moments that followed were pretty amazing for me. First of all, the other girls gathered around her without prompting and prayed incredible, heart-felt, God-driven prayers. Secondly, I felt like I was learning again how to pray in that moment. There is something to be said for listening to other's pray, and also in receiving prayer. We all pray differently, but it's nice to hear the way others pray too. I LOVED listening to these girls pray, the different styles, the things that came out. It is so clear that God is essential in their lives...and they get it at such a young age. Chalk it up to one of those clear Holy Spirit moments where you just take notice of what's happening around you. I'm glad the girls came over to hang out...if you're out there reading this...you are ALWAYS welcome anytime. Just invite yourself over. Oh, and my friend's hip wasn't bothering her after we prayed. I pray that God continues to heal her in that area...and encourage her faith too.
Thank you Jesus for allowing me moments like this...to encourage me and to grow me too.
