Have you ever felt it?

In meeting this past First Day, a woman stood to ask for prayer. Her friend's young son had just been diagnosed with a malevolent brain tumor.

As she sat back down, suddenly, WHAM, I felt it. I felt the prayer. All of us, united in prayer. It was thick, warm, pulsing, viscous, arrestingly visceral. Almost aggressive (if prayer can be aggressive). I was breathless.

I asked my friend who was there whether she had also felt it. Her eyes got big, full of wonder and joy and excitement, and told me yes, she had felt it.
