Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
Hi Marsha, That has happened to me lots of times. And anytime I wake up for seemingly no reason, I pray for anyone who comes to mind. But I have one specific incident that sticks out from the rest. It was back in 2000, I woke up in the middle of a Thursday night with a burden to pray for my pastor. I prayed for quite some time - specifically praying for protection over his family. After a while (I can't remember how long now), the burden lifted and I was able to go back to sleep. The next Sunday, our pastor happened to mention his son being very sick with a high fever on Thursday night and how it suddenly broke. I couldn't believe it! After church, I went up and asked him about it. I was praying at the very time they were dealing with his son's high fever, and the my burden to pray lifted at the same time that his fever broke! Praise the Lord!!!
About 2 1/2 years ago, I had a dream that Jesus was standing beside our bed. All He said was: "My house shall be called a house of prayer". Ever since then, I have felt compelled to pray more than ever. He seemed to impress on me the need for the Church to begin preparing because of difficult times. Exactly what this all means, I am still not sure. Anyone else out there with similar experiences?
