Why pray for people we will never meet?

Why pray for people we will never meet?

What do we gain by doing this?

What to we lose if we don’t?

He cried a few minutes after we met

Mickey Mouse on Apple Watch
It was at this time that the Food & Beverage Manager and i met.

 

He cried (briefly, and almost unnoticeably) a few minutes after we met.

The waitress behind the Hotel lobby cafe counter gently pushed my oatmeal breakfast tray across the counter while the manager got my cup of plain hot water. The boringness of my drink started our conversation.

And in a handful of minutes what began casually turned into a profound moment for both of us.

How i quit drinking coffee and diet coke and replaced that with plain water led to health talk, which led to…

Him sharing that his wife had a massive heart attack and died less than two years ago.

He shared that because he too is taking steps to become healthier.

i signed a copy of my book and included a personal note about Debi and told him i didn’t expect him to read it, but if he did, i hoped it would have a positive impact on the people he loves.

Would being an OCD idiot benefit someone else?

Praying that he gets the courage or the resources to take action.

The guy on the left has the type of mole on his chin that exceeds all the warning signs for getting an unusually large, irregularly shaped and dark colored mole looked at.

It’s not on the bottom of his chin where it would be more hidden, but front and nearly center so that every time he sees himself it reminds him.

Praying that he has already taken action and it’s benign, and that I’m an OCD idiot.
