My prayer group decided that we would pray this:
“Lord, help me be an answer to someone else’s prayer today.”
We leave for our day, and I greet everyone with different eyes. I’m anticipating how, just maybe, I might become an instrument of God in someone’s day.
Something about this prayer changed me; I stopped thinking of my own needs and my own agenda. I began to cooperate with a grander story of what God was doing all around me.
I’m not sure how or if God used me in the life of another person, but I walked about with an alert and willing heart all day long.
