Praying at the Fitness Center

“Last week I was in the locker room of the fitness center I attend, when a stranger came to her locker, read a message on her phone and started to cry. Very hard to ignore, right?  After asking a couple of questions, I asked if I could pray for her. I prayed for her and her mom, who is near the end of her life. After the prayer, she asked, “Can I ask where you go to church?” “Yes, of course, the Vineyard”, I responded.  She then commented that she thought I must be from the Vineyard. She had never attended the Vineyard but she has a friend that goes there and she said the people who go to the Vineyard are really good at praying! This is a compliment to the whole church.”
