My sister Carolyn and I had stopped at a grocery store close to my cousin’s home in Maine. As we were getting back into the truck a woman approached us “Did you drive all the way from Minnesota? I lived in Duluth for several years.” For over 20 minutes Debby continued to tell us about her life since then. We loved her strong Maine accent ….especially when she told us numerous times that her grandchildren were “sooooo SMAHHHHT.” Debby, who was 70, apologized if she smelled like Pot, but her son smoked a lot and was also growing it, in hopes of starting his own dispensary. Debby added” I had enough of that in the ’60s and ’70s. 🙂
She kept complaining about health issues and I heard the Holy Spirit tell me to pray over her, but I was waiting for a break from her long monologue. I finally said ” Can we pray for you?” and was surprised she agreed and then moved within inches of us even though she was wearing a mask. I felt the power of the Holy Spirit rattle through my right hand and my whole arm shook. Debby seemed surprised and then remarked, “I can feel that in my body! You have the gift like my friend does!” Me, “It’s the Holy Spirit’s power. Check your leg.” I kept hitting it and she continued to test it out. She was obviously delighted that her hip and leg had less pain. We then spoke healing to her heart and other ailments.
Even though it delayed our shopping trip by almost a half hour, Carolyn and I were blessed to talk and pray with her. God is everywhere. Even when you are on vacation. 🙂.
This is a good reminder that even though you might think a stranger would not be open to prayer. If you are getting that nudge, it might just be a Godly “land one in your lap” moment.
