Haven't heard of the 30 Days of Kindness? Click here to find out more. Just starting? That's okay! Feel free to start this challenge right in the middle. You can make up the days you missed through November, if you like.
Pray over someone you don't know. This challenge probably scares me the most. Praying over people always makes me feel nervous and hesitant and timid and awkward. It may make you feel the same way. If so, don't be afraid to get a friend to pray over a stranger with you. A friend can be your support and fellowship.
When I say "pray over someone you don't know", this can mean a stranger that you've never met in your life. This can mean the quiet girl with no friends at school that you've seen a few times. This could even mean a teacher that you aren't very close to, but you can tell she's having a difficult day. Let God lead you to the person He wants you to pray for. Most importantly, don't let your fear keep you from fulfilling this challenge.
For many people- even people who aren't Christians- having someone come up and say, "Can I pray for you?" will definitely make their day. It's an encouragement. It's proof that somebody out there cares.
You'll also be a great witness for God.
I want to hear your stories! Leave me a comment and share what you did during today's challenge. If you have a picture or two, feel free to send them to me. If you're blogging about today, send me the link and I'll feature it on this blog.
I'll be gone today on a Senior retreat with my classmates... and then traveling to go look at the A&M campus (possible college choice?). I'll post today's story tomorrow or the next day for you to read about.
TOMORROW: Give away five dollar bills!
