Something to think about


Last weekend my Wife and I were at a restaurant with her parents and I had an impression that we needed to pray for our waiter. So I told him we would be praying over our meal in a few moments and then asked “Is there anything we could pray for you about?” The language barrier was a little confusing, but finally he said his family.
So we prayed for his family and asked the blessing for our meal. The next day while out to eat with some friends I did it again. The cool thing was as one of us was praying for the waitress; she happened to stop at our table to check on us. So she heard us pray for her!
how often do you go out to eat and never give the waiter or waitress a second thought except at tip time? We don’t know what challenges in life they are facing, however we can show we care by asking them if we can pray for any needs they may have while we are praying for our food. It may even open up a chance to share the gospel with them.
Anyway it’s something to think about.
