Friend who was healed emails us her testimony

During a meeting in a Church last week Desert Princess and I got to minister to many who needed healing in their bodies. Here is an email exerpt from one friend of ours who was healed:

Praise God for all the healings and all the blessings you are giving to every single person whose life you touch! My ankle has been perfect since you prayed over me at [name of church] and my stomach has never been so calm!

Absolute miracle of God. I thank God for every step I take! I thought for sure my ankle was either broken or badly sprained. But, as soon as you held my hands and touched my ankle, I felt the heat in your hands which I know was the Holy Spirit.

More manifestations of the Spirit's power

Tonight was the final service we had in a Midwestern Church. Our team gave a number of meaningful prophetic words to people and also shared powerful testimonies of how they had encountered God in supernatural ways.

The message I preached was about the pursuit of life changing encounters with the Holy Spirit. As we moved into a ministry time, I gathered the entire church together in one large holy huddle. We asked the Spirit to come and HE CAME! Some wept, others laughed, prophetic words came. Wave after wave came crashing over us. The Lord healed people, He released gifts of the Holy Spirit - it was just beautiful as person after person had their own encounters with God.

As I began to pray for impartation for one couple, the Holy Spirit overwhelmed them and they were 'down for the count'. I followed them down and the Lord put a cry inside me for the Fire of God to come - as I cried out for that fire, the Lord came upon this man (I learned later when I asked him what was happening) and the very thing I cried out for began to manifest within him - he felt God's fire coming. This is a guy who told me that he was quite skeptical when it came to some of these types of encounters (which he said was due to his rather conservative church background).

It isn't possible to recount all the encounters people had. There was just so much going on all at once.

At the end of it all, the Glory of God began to manifest upon people as a number of people started to find gold dust on their hands and faces. One young man had so much gold around his mouth that we called him "Golden Mouth", which I told him was prophetic because that was what John Chrystostom's (the great Early Church preacher) name meant. I felt it was a prophetic indication of a calling upon the young man's life.

I can't even begin to express the honor it is to be a part of seeing God's Kingdom come to touch people's lives. He visited His people tonight and just to watch that happen NEVER gets old. I also was touched powerfully by His awesome presence.

Another restaurant story

At lunch today, as we walked up to the hostess who was going to seat our party, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge for a problem in her left forearm/wrist. We were seated and I then walked back to ask her what was wrong with it. She confirmed that there was in fact a problem that affected her whenever she was a server. I told her that the Lord had shown me what was wrong and that He wanted to heal her. She let me pray right there. Since it wasn't hurting at the time, we had no way of checking out what had happened. I told her it wasn't going to be a problem any more.

More healings stories

Tonight I found out that a young boy's foot was also healed after he responded to a word of knowledge while in the restaurant, and this morning a woman's ear was healed when we prayed for her as well. She had also responded to a word of knowledge that I had given.

Testimony of person from the House Church meeting

This was a comment posted on the blog post from several days ago about a woman who was healed, received an impartation of a healing gift and saw visions.

D.J., my friend who came to the House Church meeting, reports that her shoulder was healed that night! She's tested out the healing and confirms today, Saturday, she is still healed, even after working out at the gym on Friday! After she received prayer, she experienced tingling in her hands for the first time when she prayed for others. She also saw visions at the meeting. She has been talking to God and her husband about the meeting and the things she experienced, simply stated, she is greatly encouraged!

Healings at Denny's

With the anointing of the Holy Spirit still upon us from the meeting, we sat down for a late dinner. The waitress comes to take our order and I get an extremely powerful word of knowledge for a right foot problem. It wasn't for our waitress, but she said she would ask the other employees.

While we waited, the son of the Pastor who I was eating with told his dad that he had pain in his right foot - in the exact location I received the word of knowledge. We prayed for him 2 times and most of the pain left his foot.

A while later one of the manager's comes and I ask her if it was her foot that had the problem. She said no, but that one of her other employees, who had gone home had a problem. I said that if I could lay hands on her, she could carry to him a gift of healing and release it when she saw him. She agreed. I told her simply to put her hand on him and say, "I bless you in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit". She was Catholic and agreed. Before we left the restaurant, I was able to pray for her to receive that impartation, and she also had me lay hands on her and pray for her struggling marriage to be restored. Amazing what kind of doors get opened.

What about the right foot problem though? Well, another waitress comes and sits down who complains that she has pain in both of her feet. I laid my hands upon her and I feel the presence of the Lord entering her right foot. She felt it too, even though my hand was upon her back. I sensed it through another word of knowledge that came.

Anyway, both of her feet were healed. Also while I was praying, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge for a problem in her lower, right back. It wasn't hurting at the time but we prayed anyway. She said it was a frequent problem. I told it wouldn't be anymore:) As we were leaving, she stops me and says, "I just felt huge chill come over me and it wasn't from the air conditioner if you know what I mean". I knew what she meant.

Not a bad night to be alive and well and doing the stuff! Can't wait for tomorrow.

Healings and Prophecy in the Midwest

Tonight a team of us ministered in a local church in the Midwest. A team of 4 joined me and they prophesied over a number of people to start the meeting. We also shared a number of words of knowledge for healing that we would pray for during the ministry time at the end of the meeting.

As we ministered to people at the end of the meeting, the Lord healed a girl's left shoulder - all the pain left. I had given a word for a left shoulder at the start of the evening.

Two women came with pain their feet - I had given a word about foot pain. One of the women had had a surgery and a subsequent broken bone. We prayed for her and all the pain left her foot. The other woman said she experienced the pain mostly in the mornings, but as I prayed for her, the presence of the Lord came upon her feet and she knew something had changed. We of course will see tomorrow morning.

Another woman came with a very bad headache all around the front of her head and face. The Lord healed that. As I prayed, the Lord gave me a word of knowledge about a problem in her left shin - she had one, we prayed and all the pain left. She gave testimony publically.

Another man's thumb was healed after an accident with a knife had damaged his tendon. He was prayed for by one of the guys on our team. He had also received a prophetic word at the beginning of the service which he told us was accurate.

Other conditions were prayed for which I have yet to hear about as the team and I went in separate directions, but I plan to hear the other things God did when we get together tomorrow.

The miracles didn't end at the church service because our next stop and the next blog post are from the restaurant we went to at 11:30PM.
