"You must bless this girl, she needs a prayer saying"

Paul is out on the streets of Manchester speaking to the people he meets every week. Sometimes opportunities to share and pray with people just jump out at him...

Paul tells us...

I met A and M for the first time as they lay in a doorway in the centre of Manchester. M introduced himself and A to me and I handed them some food. At this stage I had made no mention of coming from a Christian charity. M said to me, 'You must bless this girl (A), she needs a prayer saying'. I was then able to pray with them both and find out a bit more of their circumstances. It is encouraging when people discern where you're coming from before you have a chance to tell them.
