Godly Response to Mysterious Thoughts and Visions; Intercessory Prayer
When I was in my thirties, I had some strange thoughts and visions. Here I will only address one in particular, that I took as a lesson.
There was a young man who I did not know well. I had a single class period with him one single year, of the 6 years that we went to the same school. His parents had known my mother in her childhood, I learned. His parents were lovely and when we moved to this area, they drove 20 miles out of their way to visit my parents and be friendly a few times.
I never hung out with the young man. We did not fellowship together in any setting.
About 13 years past high school, I was married and with a small baby. I remember walking down the long hallway of my house and all of a sudden, I did not know why, over and over I had "visions" of him. In the visions, he did not say anything and he did not seem to be in distress.
I thought these visions very strange only because I did not know WHY I would be seeing him in my mind. I brushed it off.
At the end of the week when I talked to my mother on the phone she told me the tragic news, that Sam (name changed) had killed himself.
This incident and a few others, I surely will not have full understanding of in this life. I can only take as evidence of the world or realm invisible to our fleshly eyes.
Eventually, I got the message,"When/if, someone comes to your mind, with specific information or not..... PRAY for them."
Simple: When someone crosses your mind, PRAY for them.
Can't go wrong with that!
Thanks for letting me share. I would delight for you to comment or share your experiences.
Blessings in the Sonshine,
Grandma Mary Martha 💙
It seems insensitive to mention Sam, and not say more. Link here, to respectfully share a bit more, including what I recently learned at a suicide prevention training (provided for teachers at my school).https://grandmamarymartha.blogspot.com/2017/11/suicide-prevention-dealing-with-someone.html
