After Christmas and before New Year's Eve, the Intercessors at our church had their party. I had to step down as I work on their day now, but they are so kind to include me when I can come.
We went to a lovely house with a great kitchen and living room with vaulted ceiling. The dining room was set beautifully with green tablecloth, dishes, crystal, and a present at every place setting. We had a good visit and all received little hat shaped pincushions.
The big room was just right for our gathering and prayer time. It felt so peaceful in that home and so good to be praying together with others again.
We passed out out exchange gifts. I received a book by Stormie Omartian, The Power of Praying for Your Adult Children. This is the perfect season for this book. I have been burdened that I haven't been praying enough for my kids or the proper way. This book helps in that it gives good advice as well as sample prayers to pray and scriptures to go with them. A conformation that this is just the right time came when my daughter and I were visiting and she asked me to pray for her. How nice that with God, things fit together so well. I told my gifter friend how this book as well as her other gifts blessed me.
Not only was our party a sweet fragrance of Godly friendship, but I have a gift I can use for this year. It fits right in with my New Year's plans. Has God blessed you in a special way through a friend?
