With a sense of relief, I got up from my chair and exclaimed, “Hey, you guys, we did it! Thank you, Jesus!”
Then I saw the gentleman stand, walk out from his glass room and ask, “Are you ready to start?” The three of us looked at each other with this quizzical expression of, “Did he just ask if we were ready to start?” But we didn’t say anything.
“First we pray,” said the GFA-supported worker, “then we record.”
And he flashed this big smile that said to us, “We have been taught to always pray before we go about the task at hand.” And three “hyper” visitors from the United States were not going to change that rule.
“First we pray, and then we record!” is now a line my family has said so often, I’m sure it will be with us for the rest of our lives. Yes, sometimes we say it in jest, but more often it is said as a serious reminder.
It is also a truth that to me expresses what is at the heart of this ministry. These people pray about everything. Visit their U.S. headquarters in Texas or their main offices in Asia, or travel to one of their remote fellowships, and the prayer life of the people will quickly be apparent. Prayer gatherings are at the heart of GFA’s DNA!
Because of this powerful prayer base, those involved with GFA expect God to work miracles—and He has and He does!
