The goal for our prayer time that morning was to hear from the Lord & pray over the person in front of us, sharing any words or pictures from the Lord. We were given only 5 minutes per person & when the "timer" went off, the outer circle moved one step to the left. I like to call this style, Speed Praying (aka speed dating).
And it was AMAZING!!!!!
Words of encouragement were spoken over each person that day. Although individually we didn't get to pray over everyone in the room, every person was prayed over. God spoke life over our campus that day. Those that were scared as they heard what we were going to do left with a renewed sense of purpose. Those who had never heard from the Lord for someone else walked away excited about experiencing their Savior in a different way.
While I didn't get a specific word for everyone, as I prayed over each person that stood before me God reminded me of His love for them. I could see Him, a reflection of Him, in them and it was beautiful. Each one that I prayed for were completely different, coming from different countries, speaking different languages, all here for a different reason but they all had Christ in common. I was able to speak healing over some of them, encouragement over all of them, and some very specific answers to some very specific questions that they were asking for a few.
In turn, people spoke words of love and life and affirmation over me. I was filled with joy and where before I had been tired, I walked away excited for my day and all that God was going to show me. I heard that I was loved and wanted and even needed. Isn't that what we all long for anyways, to be loved, wanted and needed. God loves, wants and needs each of you but the best part is, He chose YOU!! Have you chosen Him in return??
