Jesus Healed Today

September 17, 2010

A Christian lady on our team was suffering pains in her feet, toes and heels. She had been given a diagnosis from her doctor, but was still in pain.

I offered to pray and she was happy to agree. I laid hands on her feet, prayed and asked how she was; “no change!” I then spoke to the pain for some time and checked again. This time some improvement. I spoke to the problem again and then a third time. By this time she was reporting┬á progress from a 9 (on a pain scale of 1-10) down to 1. I then asked another Christian to come and minister the last time. He laid hands on her toes, where there was still a little numbness. He also had a word from the Lord: “anxious” She agreed she was very anxious. By this time the pain had completely gone. It was still 100% OK a couple of hours later when I checked just before we went home.

Praise Jesus for His mighty work! He took our pains and sicknesses so that we don’t have to. Hallelujah!

Evangelism In The City

September 6, 2010

oh no, not evangelism We had a market stall last Wednesday and gave out 200 Challenge Christian newspapers, several Mark’s gospels and dozens of God’s Promises (Bible verses folded up and sealed with a heart sticker). I told people they were like horoscopes, but better, since they were true. We were there from 0915 till 1245.

I prayed for the healing of an 82 year old lady with arthritis in her shoulders and hips. As she had taken paracetamol before she came out she couldn’t confirm any change pain-wise. It turned out she lives 75 yards from my house! So I gave her my phone number and said “call me if you like and I’ll pop round”.

I chatted to a group of teenage girls and gave them God’s promises. Most said they didn’t believe in a God, but one girl bravely spoke up and said “I believe in God; I believe in Jesus”.

We met quite a few Christians who stopped by and encouraged us when they saw our stall and that we go out to the homeless and street people.

I came across this great quote on someone else’s Facebook page today:

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” THEODORE ROOSEVELT (1910)
