When was the last time I posted something in the category ‘Good News’? Ages ago, and this really isn’t so much ‘good news’, because it begins with pain and loss. So often the greatest stories of human goodness start with loss, pain and suffering. I just wanted to share this moving moment, and let’s all be reminded (particularly us UK based believers) to reach out with the offer of prayer in the dark times in other’s lives. It’s so easy to assume the person in pain is not open to God, or not a believer (here in the UK for sure). Let’s always try to remember to reach out and give a hand of support and offer prayers for those in pain.
I quote for the article: (Link)
This is the touching moment three staff members at Dutch Bros Coffee prayed with a young wife after discovering her husband had died the previous day.
Barbara Danner, from Vancouver, said she was waiting in her car at a branch of the coffee chain when she noticed three workers leaning out of the service window.
Danner took a picture as the staff joined hands with the woman in front and prayed with her after noticing she was upset and learning that her husband had died.
Posting the incredible images on Facebook, Danner wrote: ‘Turns out the young lady in line ahead of us lost her 37-year-old husband last night.
‘When the DB guys & gals noticed she was falling apart, they stopped everything and prayed with her for several minutes, invited her to come back for prayer and support, as well as anything else that she might need.
‘Prayers for the young family, and you know where to stop for coffee!’
Let’s take a moment to join in prayer for that young widow, and offer thanks to God for these young people who displayed the beautiful workings of God’s Kingdom on earth in their moment of reaching out to support her.
God Bless you
