Being new Pastors here at Family Life Church, everyone was trying to get used to the idea that their Pastor retired (and because we were newly Pastoring). The people were all very introverted and quiet, making this transition a little hard.
I was feeling a little under the weather that day, but Church went on as usual. During prayer time, my husband asked if there was anyone sick and in need of prayer. I thought to myself, “I could use some prayer right now”.
Understand that in our home Church, people prayed for someone and all agreed in one accord for that person’s healing, and prayed with everything they have.
I walked to the ‘already’ quiet pulpit area and raised my hands to be prayed for. As my husband was praying, and because the people were not very outward in their prayers, I thought, “Wow, it’s really quiet, are people praying for me?” Just then, over in the corner of the sanctuary, one little lonely cricket chirped … I laughed so hard, I think it instantly healed me.
