Creative Writing Challenge: 2AM Photo
It’s 2AM and your phone has just buzzed you awake, filling the room in white-blue LED light. You have a message. It’s a photo. No words, no explanation. Just a photo. Tell us all about it. And what happens next.
Ok, so I’m off by an hour, but how funny is this? I did get a ‘phone call’ last night at around 3 am. Only it wasn’t from earth, it was a heavenly calling. I felt the Spirit ask me to pray. This has happened more than once this past month.
So, I got out of bed and went downstairs. I sat on the couch for a bit, prayed in tongues for maybe 10-15 minutes, and then grabbed a blanket and went back to sleep on the couch. When I pray in the Spirit like that I don’t always know what God is using me for. That’s OK, I trust Him
Then when I woke up again around 6:00 am I heard The Spirit say, “Can you not stay awake for one hour to pray?” The picture on my phone was of Jesus praying in the Garden. Ouch, sometimes the truth hurts.
Has this ever happened to you? I have a lot more to learn about this intercessory praying. Help me Lord.
