Soul Winner's Heart

A hand-written note from 1991 was found inside a book. The elderly Christian gentleman was obviously flying from the Maritimes in Canada to Philadelphia. The note said this:
Traveling to Philadelphia, November 29, 1991
Sat beside a young woman from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. (French-speaking Acadian). Spoke to her about her need. There seemed to be an ear. I felt toward her as the Lord Jesus felt towards the rich young ruler in the Gospel of Mark: "Jesus looking on him loved him." How I longed to be able to lead her to Christ. "Oh, God help her to read the tracts and may the Spirit of God work in her soul."
When you meet someone, and it seems like a chance encounter, do you have a burning desire in your heart to see the person won to Christ? Do you ever make a little note to yourself expressing such a desire? Have you ever written down a little prayer that you breathed out to the Lord on behalf of someone you just met?

It's called a soul winner's heart.
