8/14/19 Testimonies

Past weekend was great. The Lord is alive and well. I’ve recently seen a lot of apostate believers and one of the questions I had read was ‘what about miracles, we don’t talk about that!’ and it was in relation to the person not experiencing them, but reading them widely in scriptures. I will tell you, in my sphere of friends, miracles and healing happen just about every day – if not each day. I know we all listen and grow in the Lord daily, but the miraculous has never ceased – He lives and we live and move and have our being in Him. I personally remember years ago hearing an old pastor tell me ‘Well that happens overseas, but don’t get in to chasing that here.’ I remember thinking, if it happens overseas, why not here (this is before I began praying for the sick). In any case, I did chase these things and I can tell you it is a regular part of my walk with the Lord. If you ever have questions and such, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email.

So some recent testimonies.

Henry – Right eye patch and glaucoma – he could not see out his right eye. We prayed twice for him and could sense the presence of the Lord, but vision was not 20/20. He said it improved slightly – we are expecting a full recovery so I will have to ask and/or see when we see him next time.

John – Had abdomen pain. His pain was initially a 4 and went down to a 0 after praying for him. We blessed him and he was very grateful to the Lord for what He had done.

James – sitting in soup kitchen and he kept coming to my attention as the Lord was highlighting him to me. He said he had foot pain from walking. Prayed twice and all pain and swelling left. He was kind of surprised and grateful for what Jesus did.

Michael – Michael had knee issues. We had prayed for him before and all pain had left before and now it had come back. I prayed again and for kidney stones – pain in knee left again. I instructed him how he could go about keeping his healing – I plan to ask about the kidney stones next time I see him.

Pam was Michael’s friend. When I was praying for Micheal, my friend tried to kick me as Pam was falling out as the Lord was delivering her. So I jumped up to help grab her and we made sure she was as comfortable as possible as she was laying on the ground. We talked to her a bit after to explain what was happening as best as we knew. She felt fantastic afterwards.

Glory to God for all this – He is magnificent and alive and well! Out of all these things, seek to know Him and to grow in faith, hope, and love!

7/18/19 New Testimonies

Been about a month since the last posting, but no shortage of people getting touched by the Lord in powerful ways. Wanted to share some recent encounters to encourage you in your own walk and the realization that Holy Spirit is very much alive and well! Move, people of God…be fruitful in your communities, bless those around you…ask the Lord what you can do – if you have trouble seeing or hearing, trust in the scriptures (those who believe will lay hands on he sick and they will recover – for Holy Ghost filled brothers and sisters that means He is laying hands on people when you are). If you are looking to go out, email me and we’ll make it happen!

Today – went to the hospital to visit a friend’s friend for prayer. She was given a terminal diagnosis by the docs and after visiting and praying I think the friend thought we were coming in to do last rights type of prayer as she was very quiet and standoffish after we declared life over her. It was a bit odd, and my friend and I discussed after if she desired to be healed – and we should have asked that first. Since hospital situations are a bit unique from what what I typically encounter (I mainly pray for people in public and healing rooms), we definitely learned to ask before praying – especially when people may not desire to get well, but maybe only would like the peace of the Lord to be upon them. We did do this, but a lesson was learned.

Went to bus station last Saturday and then the park while ministering downtown. Here are a few from this time:

Billy – While walking to the park, we encountered Billy who was recently out of jail and living at a downtown shelter for a bit. He looked rough, but Holy Spirit drew me to him quite strongly. Billy was in good health, but I felt impressed to release the presence of God upon him. When I started praying I noticed Billy started getting a huge smile and confirming that he could feel the presence of God upon him. I shared the love of God with him and blessed him as he went.

Alex – He asked me for money as I was passing by and I told him I did not have money but I would pray for him. I don’t think he was expecting much to happen and you will see why in a moment – he responded that yes, he had back and neck pain. I prayed over him and honestly do not recall everything I said. When I was done I asked him to check his back and he looked at me and started moving away from me and said he was good. I told him I could pray some more and he quickly walked off.  I did command unclean spirits to leave so there was some deliverance, but I got the impression he was a bit weirded out by it.

Jason – A few of us were talking with Jason who was having various spiritual experiences, but it wasn’t clear from his story whether he knew the Lord or not. So a friend of mine prayed with him and then asked if He wanted Jesus to baptize him with fire and the Holy Spirit – he said yes. As we prayed Jason started shaking significantly and eventually told us to stop asking the Lord to do more. I look forward to the next time we see Jason – powerful time!

Reginald – He had issues with both knees – one had inflammation in it and the ankle. We prayed for him twice and while there was decline in pain it was not 100% in both. Then I noticed a young man watching near by. I asked him to come over and explained to him what he was doing and then asked if he would like to see God heal this man through him. The young man said yes, and so he repeated after me, and then Reginald checked his knee and said he was feeling great! The young man’s Dad was calling him back over to leave so we did not have much more time to talk. I declare that Holy Spirit will use this young man in a powerful way in his life and hope to see him again.

6/8/19 New Testimonies

Some wonderful testimonies of Jesus Christ healing the sick and setting captives free! He is alive and well – the same yesterday, today, and forever! Glory to God!

############################################################

Ed – was walking with a cane and slightly intoxicated. Approached him and asked what was up and he had back and knee issues. We prayed for him and he dropped his cane and took off walking down the street – which was kinda weird. He came back and still had some pain but said he felt better than before. We prayed some more and it diminished more. He ended up heading to get food, was not 100 percent when he walked away, but I’m believing full restoration came.

Connor – standing outside shelter smoking a cigarette and barefoot. Talked a bit and he said he had back pain. Did not want us to lay hands on him so commanded while standing in front of him. His eyes got all big and said he was feeling better. Asked him if he knew what happened and he said ‘well I think Jesus just healed me!’ The presence of God was heavy on me and I started releasing the presence upon him and he was definitely touched.

Michael – as we were heading back to Our location, Michael was crossing the street with a walker and his leg was all wrapped up from ankle to hip area. He was going to get food and we stopped and asked if we could pray for him. His pain was more than a 10 and we had him sit down prayed for his knee. I could feel quite a bit a heat on my hands and then we asked him to check it out and he unwrapped his leg and was able to get around fine it, but said it was slightly sensitive still. He kept the leg unwrapped and walked away!

Jen (not sure on her name) – we prayed for her at the shelter – when we walked in she had her legs up because her feet were swollen from walking. But she had other issues, too and the Lord gave me a word for hips. We prayed for her hips, back, and knees. She did not notice a huge change until she got up to throw her trash away after we had walked away and then she walked up to us and said all her pain was gone.

So how can you know God?

It all starts with accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ provides a relationship with the Father and eternal life through His death on the cross and resurrection (Rom. 5:10).

Romans 10:9 promises, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” If you have not yet begun your personal relationship with God, understand that the One who created you loves you no matter who you are or what you’ve done. He wants you to experience the profound depth of His care.

Therefore, tell God that you are willing to trust Him for salvation. You can tell Him in your own words or use this simple prayer:

Lord Jesus, I ask You to forgive my sins and save me from eternal separation from God. By faith, I accept Your work and death on the cross as sufficient payment for my sins. Thank You for providing the way for me to know You and to have a relationship with my heavenly Father. Through faith in You, I have eternal life. Thank You also for hearing my prayers and loving me unconditionally. Please give me the strength, wisdom, and determination to walk in the center of Your will. In Jesus’ name, amen.

If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations!

You have received Christ as your Savior and have made the best decision you will ever make—one that will change your life forever! 

5/31/19 Testimonies from Memorial Day

Downtown we had a memorial day bbq; a group of us went down to in order to pray for people. Many people were touched in powerful ways by the Lord! We prayed for roughly 25-50 people.

Angela – pain in both her feet of 12. Group of us prayed a few times and all her pain left. She is a believer in Jesus and was shocked by what happened. Praise Jesus!

Tim – extreme back pain. We prayed a handful of times for him and he was laughing and told us all the pain left. Many of us sensed a strong presence of the Lord when praying for him. He was moving around testing it and felt extremely good.

Ivan – serious arthritis issues. We also had words for him that ministered to his heart while we prayed for him. He said he felt great after we prayed – so glorious to see when people are touched by God in various ways, especially when they don’t expect anything.

Jason – fractured finger. He was looking for money but we did not have any. He did receive freedom from the Lord though when all his pain left in Jesus name!

I may add more at a later time but get the sense that this is all for now. Today was tremendous and so many were blessed, including myself and the group that was with us.

Glory to God in the highest – Jesus is coming soon!!!

5/4/19 and 5/11/19 Testimonies

Testimonies from 5/4/19 Out of town with friend:

This weekend we spent a good amount of time praying for words of knowledge from the Lord before going out. We were able to bless a host of people – here are some:

Lionel – We prayed for his back and overall health. He was in great spirits and full of joy when we approached him. Was a great time with him!

Bill and Shana – This couple caught my attention at a Panera while I was getting coffee. Every time I looked in the dining room they seemed to be highlighted in the busy space. Bill was dealing with ALS and his wife had back pain. They both were experiencing some challenges in life. We prayed for her back and she experienced the manifest presence of the Lord as healing started to take place. We prayed for Bill but did not notice any immediate changes. We prayed for their entire family and encouraged them before leaving.

Hotel Waiting Staff and Leadership – We asked one of the leaders if we could pray for him and he was very open to us praying for him. After, we prayed for some of the staff and blessed them in various way that we were able to. Glory to God!

Testimonies from 5/11/19 Downtown:

Angel – prayed for her family and children. No physical ailments.

Vincent – metal rod in leg, pain greater than a 10 on scale of 10. We prayed multiple times and all pain left. Vincent was surprised and very grateful. Prayed for a lot of other personal things too – powerful time!

Bruce – pain of 9, all gone after praying 3 times. Reason for pain was a result of having a major fall. Asked him after if he expected anything to change when we prayed and he laughed and said no.

Emmanuel -has heart, leg, and shoulder mobility issues (started out and pain was 9 overall – it was down to a 4 when done). We covered a lot of ground with him – he was able to move his should in ways that he was not able to previously. Great time of showering him with God’s love!

We prayed for a host of other people and they were blessed, as well. It can be hard to write it all down at the time, these were the ones I recalled and had written down – the Lord knows them all!
