It was early in the morning…as in before the sun rose.
The prayer event had started 3 p.m. the previous day. People had signed up for 30-minute time slots, and I had offered to serve a 3-hour shift to welcome people as they arrived to pray.
It was a beautiful and peaceful place to pray.
There was very little sound. There was stillness in the air. Yet the room was full – of God’s presence, of invitation to be vulnerable, of encouragement toward truth, courage, trust, and humility.
Those three hours flew by. Filled with reading God’s Word and sharing my heart with Him, I left feeling complete, content, and prepared. It is a morning I will not soon forget.
Search for the Lord and for His strength; seek His face always. (1 Chronicles 16:11, HCSB)
