Prayer on the streets

Operation Joy Missionary Paul Winter offers prayer.

A vital part of Paul’s ministry to the street population is to offer prayer. Sometimes the results can be surprising.

L is one of Paul’s regular visits. Whilst not homeless per se she has significant needs and is often found sitting on the streets. When Paul offers to pray for her not only is she happy to be prayed for, she often provides a list of other people who need prayer and will pray herself.

Recently another lady, R, joined in the conversation. L decided that she and Paul should pray for R. Paul observed, “This demonstrates just how thoughtful some members of the street population are.”

A survey carried out in July 22 suggested that 25% of the adult UK population believe in prayer enough to pray at least once per month.

Have you considered offering to pray for your friends? You might be surprised at the results.
