United in Prayer

By Anne Brewer (South Bend)

A moment that comes to mind is when I went to the hospital to visit my sister Pam Peterson (South Bend) who had been very sick for a week. I walked into her room and her husband Ken was kneeling next to her bed praying. I joined in praying with all my heart for her healing. I could feel the presence of the Lord very powerfully. It was a moment of union with the Lord and with Ken in our common desire for Pam's healing. I was well aware that Ken had done this many times at other bedsides as he is a Lutheran minister. I felt like the Lord sent me along to shore him up. I am a Roman Catholic and this chance to be so united in prayer was very memorable. Being ecumenical is something I take for granted. It is so great to become more aware of the gift of having life in common with others of different denominations.
