On Sunday afternoon, February 13, I travelled to Crossroads Mall to walk with the Holy Spirit in prayer. I was disappointed, but not surprised, that no one joined me on this adventure in prayer. It proved to be a very interesting experience as well as time spent in prayerful communion with God.
As I pulled into the parking lot I was a bit taken aback at how busy the mall was. I have never seen Crossroads this busy, except perhaps just before Christmas. This day before Valentine’s Day found the mall abuzz with activity. It was a bit overwhelming as I wondered how I would ever be able to focus on anyone particular person or situation for prayer.
I began my walk on the upper level of the mall overlooking the children’s play area. From this point I had a bird’s eye view of much of the mall. As I leaned against the protective rail my body tingled all over which I interpreted as a leading to stay put in that spot for some time.
Immediately below me was the children’s play area. Most of the children were playing rough and tumble games, running etc. However, one little girl, perhaps eight or nine years old, stood apart from the others leaning against the wall.
