Pryor Creek, Oklahoma. My boys spent much of their growing up years in that wonderful town. I miss PC. (You might have guessed that if you’ve read many of my blogs.)
When we bought the pharmacy and moved to PC, #1 Son was starting 3rd grade, MS was starting preschool, and BB wasn’t a two-year-old yet.
When we moved away from PC, #1 Son had graduated from high school and was attending college in Claremore. MS was in his last year of middle school and BB was in his first year of middle school.
Between those two paragraphs were ten and a half years of getting to know and coming to love a wonderful community. The thing I loved most? The people. (Big surprise, huh?)
I liked the heck out of our customers, loved most of our neighbors and every person in our church, and to be downright honest, I adored the women in my Sunday School class.
There were two woman I connected with in SS like few other people in my life. When we moved to PC, a town where I knew only the preacher and his wife from college, I started praying for prayer partners.
God answered that prayer in high def.
He gave me prayer sisters that I connected with so deeply, I can still feel their prayers in my life today.
We prayed through so much together. Family celebrations. Christian joys and family sorrows. National tragedies. We asked God; He answered.
These two prayer sisters were a wonderful blessing. And I miss them more than I can say. I learned constantly from them, grew deeper in Christ and came to know Him in an even brighter light.
These women are and have always been more than friends to me, and when I see Him face to face, I won’t be surprised to learn they were truly angels, we just didn’t know.
What does it take to make a prayer sister? A heart for God. I was very lucky to have God answer my prayer in such a beautiful way.
I haven’t found non-related prayer partners here in C-Town, except for the crew that we call The Church. The people there are ready and always willing to pray with and for others. There’s a short prayer list each week in the bulletin and a longer one available on the church buttetin board.
Do you ever feel the need for someone to pray with you for yourself or others? Is there someone special you join with in prayer?
Or do you stand on your own when you pray?
Come on and tell me about your prayer life.
