Called to be More highlights -- #12

Highlight #12 – A special prayer.

One of the groups was walking near Dayton, when they began chatting with a young woman walking by. She wanted to know the purpose of the walk. Eventually the pilgrims asked if they could pray for her. She burst into tears and explained that she was trying to get off of drugs. The adults offered to pray with her at that moment, which the woman accepted. After praying together, the adults were able to give her some advice about seeking help for her addiction. Even though they eventually parted ways, the woman’s story was on the pilgrims’ minds during the trip and was an intention carried during the remainder of the journey.
Perhaps this woman’s life was changed because of an encounter with strangers on the sidewalk of a busy street.
