I haven’t posted all summer, but it has been eventful. While on holiday in North America, we shared with many people about what God is doing. We prayed for many who are sick, in body and in spirit. During the summer, the Lord also gave me many vivid dreams and revelatory insights. Here is a brief list of some of the things that my wife (Star) and/or I have seen God do in the last two months:
- After a time of prayer, a strained relationship between a mother and her adult daughter began to show significant signs of improvement.
- We prayed over a child’s bedroom so that the child could sleep better at night, and not awake suddenly full of fear. After this, the child could sleep much better without going to her parents’ room during the night.
- The Lord shone light into the shadowy secret life of a man’s porn addiction, putting hope in his heart about the reality of deliverance.
- We prayed for a man who had come to us with a chronic back condition – he reported “intense heat” where Star had her hands placed. Star was also prompted to ask him if he needed to forgive anyone – which he did. After this, he reported a total improvement!
- Star and I went to a hospital room to pray for a single mother with 3 young children (who were currently being cared for by neighbours while the mother was hospitalized). At that point, she looked terrible and had many intravenous lines in her. She had blood clots and collapsed veins. As we prayed, I sensed that she’d be out of hospital and looking after her own children within 48 hours – and she was! The change in her was remarkable next time we saw her.
- Star and I prayed for a man with kidney stones. As we prayed, Star got a picture of stones disintegrating and passing in water. He reported later that where my hands were, he felt "heat"! We haven't yet heard a further report from him.
- I prayed for a woman with asthma - she reported a significant improvement in her ability to breathe.
- I prayed for two different women who had painful varicose veins – both reported a significant (if not total) decrease in pain, and one spoke of a “crackling” feeling in her legs that she felt corresponded to healing as it spread through her legs.
- Star and I prayed for a young woman in our kitchen – she had a lot of neck, shoulder & back pain from an accident 2 years ago… she felt “heat” where Star’s hands were placed, and left feeling much better than when she arrived! Whereas before she could barely lift anything, after we prayed she lifted Star right off the floor as she hugged her!
We also prayed for many people for whom we did not see the result that we were asking for. Some were common ailments, while others were more exotic. But we believe that as we grow, we will see every affliction bow to the authority of Jesus. Meanwhile, we give honor and glory to our Lord for every instance where His power was displayed.
