Bedouin muslim man asks me to pray & then the word of knowledge comes

Yesterday an usual thing happened.  A young Bedouin Gulf Arab came to my office and asked me if I could pray for his grandfather in a coma.  First of all, I have no idea how this man heard that I prayed for healing, but let’s just say AMEN!  Anyway, as he is telling me with literally tears in his eyes, saying, “I’m so afraid I’m going to lose him”, a distinct word of knowledge slammed into the left part of my neck.  I asked him - “Did your grandfather have a blood clot in the left side of his neck that caused him to fall into a coma”?  He said, “Yes”!  At that point, my faith level shot through the roof.  I wondered if we could go together and see his grandfather to pray.  He explained how far away he was and so I came up with another plan – when he is with him in the hospital, he will call me and I’ll pray for his grandfather while he lays his hands on him.  He agreed.  He did NOT call me last night as I expected, and that is most likely because he ran the idea/offer by some of his family members and they would have shot it down.

I am praying that IN DESPERATION, he will disregard their counsel and call me and let me pray.  With the word of knowledge, I know this muslim man knows that God is going to do something.

muslims getting touched in Jesus' Name!

This past week our community has had a number of exciting opportunities to pray for Muslims and God has answered.

One young Gulf Arab muslim woman had back pain, and one of the women in our community met with her and prayed for her and almost all of the pain left.  When she told me there was still a little bit left, I said, “Don’t let my friend get away with!  You need to be PAIN-FREE”.  So she will get prayer again!  She’s already had prophetic dreams and God is drawing this young muslim woman to Himself.

Another young muslim woman was sharing about her allergies and my wife found out that they began when her father died.  She had really battled with depression and even some suicidal thoughts at that time.  The Holy Spirit touched her powerfully when Desert Princess prayed with her and counseled with her over the phone (for nearly an hour).  The allergies are NOT completely healed, but I have asked her if we can pray again today, this time in person, to be completely delivered.  Again God’s love and His presence has so powerfully touched this young woman.  She was in tears when she received prayer and was also in tears when she was telling me about the encounter.

Just a couple of things God has done this week as we took the risk to offer the Kingdom in Power!
