While We Were Praying...

While we were praying..Something Happened! Don't you just love that! Something Happened!!!! God gave us a sign!
Every Tuesday from 12:00 to 1:00 , I meet with three other women to pray in the Sanctuary of our church. We are just a pocket of prayer girls standing in the gap for our church, community, and yes we even pray for the whole world. Outside the church we hang a big sign that says:
Stop by for Prayer NOW. We get a few drop ins, but I don't think a lot of people feel called to pray past their own needs.

In the picture on the left, you can see the cross in our sanctuary. Natural light comes in from above the cross. There is a prism of mirrors which reflect light and make rainbow colors around the cross. The patterns are always changing. It is very stunning at times. I took this photograph on Tuesday to give you an example.

Last week at Prayer Now, the colors around the cross were so amazing. I have never seen it look so beautiful. The cross was covered in rainbows. We paused to take a picture of the cross with our camera phone. The camera lens and our natural eyes saw two different images. The lens saw the light around the cross as an arrow. We were stunned. God gave us a sign. He had a message for the prayer girls and for you.

Has something in life got you down? Maybe your marriage, job, the election, the choices your children are making.
LOOK UP! PRAY expectantly. The Lord hears and sees all.

LOOK UP! See the sign given to the whole world. His name is JESUS. He is The Way!

Look to the LORD and his strength;seek his face always. Ps 105:44

  1. What an exciting story and how encouraging after the election. Our answer isn't in a man on earth, but in a God in heaven.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. I am looking up with you. Actually, I really do spend a lot of time looking up at the sky as I talk to Him. Wonderful encouragement today B.

  3. Hi Barbara--Thanks for the encouragement. The arrow is just perfect--the One way for HOPE!

  4. Thank you for stopping by to visit. I'm happy to "meet" you! The pictures of the cross are awesome. As you mentioned, He continues to rescue us day after day after day. I think it's cool that you're a speaker. I don't really like speaking in front of lots of people, my knees shake! I don't mind leading my women's study though. Smaller crowd and I love to encourage them in the Lord.

  5. What a neat cross! I am so glad you shared the picture, and story about the arrow! I needed to hear that this morning.

    Hey, I've linked a turtle tuesday post to you. Stop by and check it out. :)


  6. Beautiful! Very encouraging. This post reminds me of a message I've had e-mailed to me tons of time:

    Fearlooks down. Worry looks around but faith looks up.
