Continued from Yesterday
Meeting Laura Lasky was everything that I had imagined. She is witty, hilarious, loving, caring and filled with “The Spirit”!
She and her husband Stephen have prayed for us non stop this year and on many occasions Jenni and I have gotten emails when we wake up in the morning. As we read it, we feel the Spirit move because it is exactly what we have wrestled with in our minds and Laura was praying over the very same thing. The crazy part is we never talked to her about these things until she brought them up. God totally talks to her every day!
So pleased I came home in time to chat with her before she headed back to the Bay Area.
Friday morning I got a call from a former coworker. He told me about a group of people that go around praying over businesses and actually speaking prophetic words to the owners. He invited them to come in and pray over “The Company” before he would give up on all his hard work. This was his life line.
I was intrigued and had to be there.
So we all show up at the conference room of our building. There were 4 of us that worked together and the 8-10 people were complete strangers to me. We sat around and ate some lunch while giving a quick introduction to who everyone was and what they did. The owner of the company was last and he gave a long explanation of who he was and what the story of the company had been to that point. Then it was time to start the prayer session.
All of us who worked at “The Company” sat down and the “Prayers” gathered around and laid hands on us. They began to pray and I could feel the Holy Spirit in the room. Some would give word pictures of what they were seeing others just prayed. Eventually the leader of the group came around and grabbed the owners hands and spoke some very prophetic words to him. He did this for each of my coworkers and I began to feel like God had forgotten about me.
I was longing for an anointing from the Spirit.
After each had received their word, this man came over to me. He asked me to stand up. Now I am totally nervous cause I had been balling like a baby during the prayer time.
He says, “Give me a hug”. He is way taller and thicker than me so he wraps me up with his long arms. This was one strong man hug!
He says, “Papa wants me to tell you something. He wants you to know that He sees your faithfulness and He appreciates it. Be encouraged because he knows that things have not been clear and you have remained faithful. He is going to bring you clarity very soon and you will be blessed. He loves you so much and He is proud of you.
I totally lost it!
Here I was jealous because everyone else got a Word of encouragement and I was left out. Turns out, I got exactly what I needed and the best things do come to those who wait on the Lord.
I literally felt God’s arms around me, holding me, encouraging me to keep up the good fight. I have never felt anything like this my entire life. It was exhausting, exhilarating, and exciting.
If you have never encountered The Living God, there is no way for you to imagine what you are missing out on.
After this experience, I went home to share the story with Jenni and Laura. As soon as I had finished telling what I could remember of the experience, Laura began to tell me what God had been speaking to her…
