A little while later, a joyful young mom pulled up to thank us for being out on the sidewalk to speak up for life. She told us that she adopted her daughter and was very thankful for prayer warriors like ourselves who take the stand for life. She named her sweet little girl, Grace -- because that is what she knows God did for her...graced her with a child to call her own. We were all just taken in by her heartfelt story. Little Grace loved waving at us and gave us a big smile. Again, thank You Jesus for giving us this blessing.
A little more time went by and a young man came up (about 16 or 17) and wanted to know what our purpose was out on the sidewalk. Jenny shared our mission with him and gave him lots of information that he could share with his friends. He was truly grateful.
Another huge blessing came to us when our mighty prayer warrior, Richard, stopped by to thank us for all of our prayers for his health. He is feeling better and the pain is subsiding. Amen!! Thank You Jesus!!
We were finishing up our prayer hour when one of our regular "negatives" came walking by. He is an elderly man who just will not stop to find out the truth. He proceeded to walk right through us (like a bull in a china shop!)...brushing shoulders with a couple of us. We smiled...knowing that some of our blessings rubbed off on him...maybe one day he will actually stop and smile. (Maribeth)
