I’m kinda emotionally overwhelmed/drained from yesterday. The sermon was really heavy and life giving, but more than that, I found out that two guys that I was praying for accepted Christ yesterday. The crazy thing is that I didn’t know either guy at all.
The first guy had posted something on our church’s web site a few weeks about life struggles. It was clear that he wasn’t a believer. God put it on my heart to pray for the guy’s salvation. I had never met him, and had no plans to ever meet him. The next thing I know…his girlfriend is attending out community group. Then yesterday he attended the service with her and God saved him.
The other guy I still haven’t met. One of my volunteers during the 7pm service asked if I would pray for his friend that was attending the service. The guy (not the volunteer) was addicted to drugs and decided he wanted to come to church again. I prayed a quick prayer and didn’t think to much about it afterwards. I saw on Facebook this morning that the guy met Jesus and God saved the guy last night.
I know that God saves whoever He wants. So I think it’s so cool that God allowed me to be a part of these guys’ story. It just goes to show that one of the most powerful tools for evangelism is prayer.
