Rockin’ Prayer

April 24th, 2006

At 3:30 on Sunday afternoon, a group of us gathered to pray. As we prayed outside for the church, for God’s Spirit to be moving, and for Glasgow’s west end; a group of teens walked by yelling things like, “Jesus isn’t listening!” One of them picked up a rock and threw it at us. They […]
