Prayer changes things. I am not going to get very theological or psychological in this post (writings on prayer often do). I just want to offer a very simple testimony.
I’m doing a lot of “contact work” these days. Contact work is basically going places to meet people to build relationships. In short, when I’m doing contact work is to meet people, bless people, and pay attention to what God is doing.
A few weeks ago, I asked a friend who prays when she is asked to pray and my wife to start praying for me and specifically for the places I was visiting regularly to do contact work.
Now, it’s not a scientific study – but after they started praying, meeting people became easier, conversations flowed more naturally, and the conversations often went deeper, faster. And the promptings of the Holy Spirit – very important in contact work – became much clearer.
