A friend popped into my mind a few times throughout the day. I paused to pray, then moved on until the next prompt.
I think sometimes God gently pokes me to prompt me into prayer or other action. After a few pokes, he sometimes gets a bit more obvious and shoves me. And that’s what happened a few days ago.
I didn’t feel the need to reach out to my friend and let her know I’d been praying…until God made it obvious. During a conversation with someone I barely know, my friend’s sons were complimented. The person I barely knew commented on how well he noticed they had done something at my house. He didn’t know them, but I felt as if, especially after a day of prayer prompts, God was highlighting my friend and her family. I decided to call her and pass along the affirmation but also let her know about the prompts.
I quickly learned there was cause behind the prompts to prayer. I was thankful I’d listened, especially to the shove to reach out and personally connect.
