There are random things that happen throughout my day that cause me to think about other people and pray for them. Some of these things are long-standing and others are new. Today, I had a couple of new things that happened for me to think of someone to pray for.
But first, an example of a long-standing reminder. When I was little, my dad drove a semi truck for Yellow Freight. I have no idea how long he had this job, but ever since then, it was a game to see who could see a Yellow Freight truck and call it first. To this day, when I see a Yellow Freight truck, it reminds me of my dad and often I take that opportunity to pray for him.
Today, I saw a Mazda 6 which reminded me of my friend Lisa, which caused me to take a few minutes to pray for her. Which led me to look at the clock and see that it was 4:50. 4:50 our time equals 4:50am in Bangkok, which means that my friend Celeste was pleasantly sleeping (at least I hope she was). But it allowed me to pray for a productive day for her, time with the Lord, and an opportunity for her to minister to the Ladyboys in the bars.
What a mighty God I serve that He would give me reminders throughout my day to pray for others!
