Grocery shopping can be a very tedious job. I usually like to get it out of the way early in the morning around 7:00 am. You see, I’m a morning person and I prefer to go to the grocery store right when the doors open. I like to get in and get out to avoid the crowds and long lines.
On this particular day, I went grocery shopping in the afternoon at around 1:00 pm. I had just gotten back from being out of town and noticed that I didn’t have much food in the refrigerator for the week and needed to stock up on some groceries. After the flight from Minnesota to Atlanta with a plane change, I sure didn’t feel like going to the grocery store. I was so tired, had a headache and my feet were hurting really bad but I knew I had to press my way and go get some food to eat for the upcoming week.
I walked into the grocery store with my list in my hand and began to look in the produce section for some salad and cabbage. I found a decent head of cabbage, picked up two bags of salad, and proceeded to look at the fruit. As I was in the fruit section, a young lady came up to me, smiled, and spoke to me. She asked me how I was doing and if she could pray for me. As I said yes, she showed me a piece of paper that had on it specific things that the person would be wearing that she should pray for.
I glanced at the paper and noticed that it said…red, gold hoops, bananas, fresh revelation, and spring/new things. You see, I had on a red shirt, red shoes, silver hoops, was standing by the bananas, and had just sold my house and would be purchasing a NEW house very soon. I was in awe as I looked at the little paper with those words written on them. The Holy Spirit had spoken to her and led her to me.
I felt a sense of peace as she began to pray for me; her hand on my arm and my hand touching her shoulder as we bowed our heads. It didn’t matter that we were in the fruit and vegetable section of a grocery store. All that mattered was that a friendly lady had come up to me and asked if she could pray for me.
Who could you pray for?
