Do you prayer for your waiter?
I guess the first question to answer before that is: Do you pray when out to eat. Well, you should.
And then before you do, tell your waiter or waitress that you are a Christian and will be praying for your meal.
Then, I dare you to go a step further and ask him or her if there is something you could specifically pray about for them.
I have had some amazing conversations and heart wrenching prayer requests as well as moved individuals as they stand before the table with tears in eyes sharing their stories.
What a way to…
I wish I could say I do this every time I am out and regardless with whom I am dining with, but sadly that’s not the case. Trying to make it happen more often then not. I hope you will too.
You should also tip well! Please look back at this post and see why and what all it entails: https://bethechurch.home.blog/2019/01/23/tip-well/
And if you missed the post last week – check it out, another way to pray and be an example: https://bethechurch.home.blog/2019/11/28/its-all-about-the-bird/
This time of year may be just the opportunity to touch a waiter’s or waitress’s heart. You may find yourself out with friends whom have yet to choose Christ as Saviour. Them not only seeing you pray over the meal, but taking a step further to include them or the wait staff may just be the link to their coming to a saving knowledge of Christ or a seed planted or watered.
You have nothing to loose.
The unsaved around you have all to gain.
Take the opportunity to pray for the waiter and then please ￼share what fruit you bear.
And remember, when you pray you will…￼
