Shout-Out to Alan, who sat in front of my family at church, helped lead the college & career small group I attended, and who really, truly cared.
What I appreciated the most was that when you asked how someone was doing, you actually wanted to know, really took time to stop and listen. And when I – or anyone – needed prayer, you prayed, right then and there.
I think you must have been the first person I knew to do that, because it really had an impact on me. This many years later, I probably don’t remember any of the lessons you taught at small group, but I remember your heart… and that you prayed. Thank you.
Challenge to readers:
If there has been someone in your life who stands out as truly caring and actively praying, be sure to thank them for it!
