I remember a few years ago, right after I had become a Christian, it was the middle of my twenties and my life took a complete drastic turn. And I started to share things on social media that were completely different than what I had been sharing before. And I will never forget that this girl from high school. I have an older sister who’s about a year and a half older, and she’s been a Christian for as long as I can remember in our teens. I remember this girl from high school messaged me on Facebook saying, “Wow, Jen, this is so encouraging to see the fruit of your sister’s prayer, 10 years later to see you come to know the Lord. I just want you to know that your sister was praying for you.” I think it was at Fellowship of Christian Athletes in high school, and now 10 years later, like to see the fruit of those prayers come to pass. And it just impacted me so much, especially in the last seven years of my walk with the Lord to encourage me that while I’m praying for people.
I think we all have someone in our life that we’re contending for that we just want to know that Jesus loves them so much. And I share that testimony a lot to encourage people, that if they have a family member or a friend that they’ve been relentlessly praying for, to just know that those prayers are heard. Those prayers are impacting the person that they’re believing for, that they’re loving on. And that one day I fully believe that you’ll see that person come to know the fullness of Jesus in their life as well.
So I just pray for you, if that’s you, that you feel the endurance in that, that you feel that the Lord is covering them, and that you just see little nuggets of how your life has impacted them as you continue to just believe for that fullness in their life.
