Your Life – an Example

These older women must train the younger women… (Titus 2:3).

I was reminded of that today. Years ago, when we began the Great Commission Prayer Crusade in Canada, I travelled with Vonette Bright, the co-founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, International, to cities across Canada. She was the guest speaker at the prayer rallies we had organized.

She modelled to many women the importance of praying for our government leaders and inspired us to begin a prayer movement in Canada. But today, I was reminded of what she taught me during the times we spent when we were alone in the car, airplane or hotel rooms.

She prayed spontaneously. We would be having a conversation and suddenly I realized she was talking to God, not to me.

One day, while driving, we passed a car accident. She immediately began to pray for the people involved. She prayed for their salvation, for their recovery and peace of mind. It surprised me at first, but I liked it.

When we were packing our clothes to head for the next city, she spontaneously thanked God for His provision. By now I was getting used to these “popcorn” prayers. I have often thought about that trip and how Vonette taught me by her example to “pray without ceasing.

Today, a young woman told me how much she had learned from me...especially the way I prayed spontaneously about everything. 2 Timothy 2:2 really does work.

“Teach these great truths to trustworthy men (and women) who will in turn, pass them on to others.”

I thank God for Vonette Bright and how she models the life of a godly woman.

Who has been a godly model in your life? Why not take a moment to send her a note and thank her.

Father, You have told us to teach younger women and we recognize that truths are more caught than taught. Make our lives pleasing to You, Lord, so we will be sparkling lights to those in our sphere of influence. Amen.
