    Thanks! Our bible study last night became an old fashioned “Wednesday night prayer meeting” and our pastor spoke on the power of prayer and us needing to pray more and ask god for a spirit of discerning and intercessory! Great recommendation.

      Perfect timing then. My post is simply a confirmation of where your pastor is already leading you, and the Spirit uses this to show you where God’s heart is for you right now. Thanks for sharing the comment!
