A friend of ours named Audley joined us for his first prayer station several weeks ago and he had a pretty incredible encounter out on the street. He met a man named John who seemed to have a heavy heart. John began to explain his situation to Audley and said that he was having a lot of problems with his marriage. He is an American but his wife is from Ethiopia. The cultural differences have been causing a lot of tension, and to make things worse, she has been struggling with suicidal thoughts.
While he was sharing, Audley interrupted him in the middle of his sentences and asked him, “Do you know a girl named Krystal?” John took a step back, surprised by his question and said, “Yes, I do.” Audley followed up by asking, “Is she a short black girl?” John said, “Yeah… actually she is.” Audley said, “You’re never going to believe this, but my friend Krystal has been telling me to pray for her friend named John, who's been having trouble with his marriage because his wife is from Ethiopia!” It turns out that Audley and John had a mutual friend who had been telling Audley to pray for John. That day Audley actually got to meet the man that he was praying for on the streets! It was a God thing.
John was blown away and said, “Wow, there are millions of people in this city and you just so happened to meet me out here today.” Audley said, “Yep, God must be up to something!” Audley ministered powerfully to John that day and, when he left, he said; “Now I have something to smile about.”
