Bunso prayed for Ate
It has been a joy for me to pray for people (well, most of them are people from the call center ministry), basta nakaramdaman ako ng urge to pray for someone, I'd approach him or her and pray for them... Common for our baby christians in gcf CONNECT at yung mga first time guests namin kailangan tlga ipag-pray ko sila before sila umuwi, hindi ako mapalagay eh. And ayun nga, I consider that a privilege and a blessing...
But then Sunday night, I went home and felt like I want to be prayed for! Hindi kasi ako tumayo during Pastoral Prayer eh, all along I thought magiging okay ako at the end of that day. Pero hindi pla, before I went home may isang bagay na nakapag-paiinis sa akin at medyo iniyakan ko... Hehe! Pero okay na yun ngayon!
Monday after noon, I was reading a book before going to sleep (because I have shift at 11pm)... Lumabas ako ng kwarto at pinuntahan si Bunso (Majar), I asked him to pray for me. I told him two of my major prayer concern:
1. I'm broken hearted over something from way back (not to long ago pero from way back last year) and that God is dealing with me so that I may deal with it.
2. My good dillema over someone, someone that I have been praying for. I need the affirmation of peace to be complete so that I may discern if this is really God's will or not.
So ayun, nakakatuwa si Bunso kasi medyo naglulugaw daw ang utak nya...At medyo nagulantang sya na bigla-bigla na lang akong nagpa-pa-pray, hehe! So ayun, he read me a passage before praying for me:
"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
-2 Peter 1:3-11
Actually, hindi ko na-absorb nung binasa nya sa akin kasi nga antok na antok na ako. So kinuha ko bible nya at binasa ko ulet... Hehe, sori hndi ko pa din na-absorb! It was just tinight that I am able to get what the passage, and what Majar is trying to tell me!
And I'm just so thankful that God used my bunsong kapatid... I'm just happy that I can count on him (Majar) to pray for me kapag mga ganung on-the-spot instances. Magiging Pastor yun eh! Joke lang... Love you bunso! (--,)
