Anyone who knows me knows that I like cars. I especially like... can you guess? Click here to see if you were right :). Luxury cars are always fun to try and spot while you're driving, and they aren't as common on the roads up here (except for Ford Mustangs... I see those all the time). When I lived down south every second car you passed was a luxury car. That just makes the whole noticing cars thing not so much fun anymore. BTW, I'm a huge fan of the new Camaro, so if anyone needs an idea of what to get me for Christmas....! Cherry red preferably :).
Another thing I like to do while I'm driving (besides scout out all the beamers in town :) is pray. Usually I'm by myself in my car, and it's quite, which makes it a great opportunity to pray. With my eyes open of course! I also tend to notice cars that are the same as people that I know own. For instance, there's this blue green dodge caravan in North Bay exactly like my parent's. It even has a similar license plate number. Once I was really confused because I saw it while I was taking a walk, and I thought it was my Mom. Only I had just spoken to her on the phone about half an hour before, so I knew there was no way she could be in North Bay!
A few days ago, while driving, I was praying, and then I noticed a car that was the same as one of my friend's, and it reminded me to pray for them. Then I had my brilliant idea. Since cars are something I notice, and since I pray a lot while I'm driving, why not consciously make an effort to pray for the people I know when I see the car that's the same as the one they own. I've been trying this for a few weeks now, and it's a really neat way of praying. It's just something I thought that I could do to help me remember to pray for more people. I don't usually pray a long prayer, just something simple. Like for God to encourage that person, or give them a special blessing, or if they are unsaved, that He would work in their heart so they might come to know Him.
Now you know that if I know what kind of car you drive, I'll probably be praying for you when I see that car. Just remember, whenever you see a white, two-door, pontiac sunfire you can pray for me too :).
