Our little Prayer Table is having a big impact! Just last week as we were about to leave, a student named Lance stopped by. He shared openly about his drug addiction and an emerging desire to connect with a Higher Power, instead of relying on his own strength. We shared the Gospel with him, connecting Jesus to his desire to follow God. He got it! Lance said that something had told him to come speak with us. He identified immediately with the Prodigal Son as we read him the parable from Luke 15. With great enthusiasm, Lance prayed with us to receive Christ—repenting of his sin, surrendering his will, accepting the free gift of grace, and trusting in the Father! As we finished the prayer he looked up with a wide-eyed smile exclaiming, “I feel so different! Everything is so clear. I have clarity for the first time in my life!” Wow! Please keep Lance in your prayers as he still battles doubts about his faith and struggles with drug addiction.
