The same day of the Millennium celebration (Wellington 2000) at lunchtime I saw Kingi, a poor looking Maori man sitting on a seat outside the Wellington railway station. I approached and sat with him. We talked. I discovered he was a backslidden Christian. More than that, a back-slidden evangelist. I exhorted and pleaded with him to return to Christian fellowship. I shared with him about the Body of Christ needing to stick together. How the pastor needed the evangelist and the prophet the teacher. At the conclusion, after an hour with him, I asked to pray for him. He let me. Then I asked him to pray for me. He refused. I asked him again saying I needed his prayers as much as he needed mine. He said he didn’t know what to pray anymore. I closed my eyes & said I wasn’t going away until he prayed for me. A lovely prayer, he prayed. We then went to the stadium together and I pray the songs and speakers there refreshed his heart. Lord Jesus, bring this man back into full Christian fellowship with you and your children.
