but I was ministering at Arden Chapman's home and couldn't receive Michael's
call. I called Michael back on Sunday the next day to find out what he needed.
Michael said, "Whit, I wanted to share a testimony with you that will encourage
you." Michael proceeded to share with me what happened. His wife Rebecca
and Hannah were at the mall Friday night at the same time in the same store.
I had taken Hannah and Aaron Sophia with another friend of mine and his
While Hannah and her friend were shopping at a boutique for women they ran
into Michael's wife Rebecca at the same store. As Hannah was leaving the store
the employee at this particular store asked Rebecca if she knew that girl - referring
to Hannah. Rebecca said yes, she knew Hannah. The employee proceeded to
tell Rebecca that Hannah had prayed with her about a year ago. She said Hannah
asked her if she could pray for her and the employee agreed to receive Hannah's
prayer. The employee at the time of Hannah's prayer had suffered multiple
miscarriages and was currently pregnant having difficulties with her pregnancy.
Hannah was able to pray for the employee whose name is Ginger. Ginger was
able to have her baby and had no more complications with her pregnancy from
the point that Hannah prayed for her.
This is the testimony that the employee shared with Rebecca that Michael
Stephens shared with me today on Father’s Day!!! What a great gift. Here is the
question to pose for each of us. How many people are waiting to be prayed for?
How many prayers are waiting to be answered? Are we willing and ready to be
"KINGDOM" and the literal answer to someone's need and prayer by offering
ourselves as we go out each day from our homes. WE ARE ON MISSION EACH
TIME WE LEAVE OUR HOME. MISSION TRIPS ARE GREAT AND NEEDED.
HOWEVER, IF IT TAKES A MISSION TRIP TO GET US TO PRAY FOR OTHERS
AND WHEN WE RETURN HOME AND PUT OUR MISSION MODE ASIDE WE
ARE MISSING OPPORTUNITIES LIKE THIS ONE SHARED BY A LOCAL
EMPLOYEE THAT WAS TOUCHED AND WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. LET'S BE
KINGDOM. LETS BE THE CHURCH.
Happy Father's Day!!!
