“Amen” I shook Rick’s hand, and noticed his big smile. A few days later, facing a dif- ferent AC problem, I called the repair com- pany back to arrange another appointment and told them how much I appreciated their technician, Rick. The repair company receptionist then said, “He enjoyed meet- ing you and when he came back to the shop from the appointment at your house, the first thing he said was, “That guy had prayer with me!” I share this story for one reason. It is not to suggest what a great witness for Jesus I am. I don’t share it for any spiritual bragging rights. There is no great outcome I can claim as a result of this interaction, but this one thing I re-learned that day and believe to be true: Everyone wants our prayers! I’ve never had anyone, including strangers, turn down an invitation to be prayed for. Rick reminded me there is a vast human need to connect with God, and to welcome the invitation of someone – you or me - to bring them into the presence of our Jesus. Ephesians 6:18 says, “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Why not be “on the alert” this week, for the privilege of praying with someone!
