I believe Mark 16:18 - In Jesus - 05-09-2014

Today I stepped out to love on 3 different guys. The first one I met just a little bit after leaving work. I first walked over to a mall to get some cash from the bank machine as I knew I'd need some change for another mall I was going to be heading to. I was on my way back to my vehicle when I met him. He couldn't walk or talk very well. He was also drooling. I honestly forget, but I think he had been in an accident years ago and said that since then, whatever causes him to walk and talk like that, comes and goes. He didn't know what the cause of it was. He let me pray and command healing and life to his body 3 or 4 times over about 10 or so minutes of talking with him. We didn't see any improvement before I left him.

The second man was in a wheel chair at the second mall I visited. I walked past him after getting some food and saw that he was trying to move on his own with only his left leg being functional. I walked back to him to help him and got him to his friends at a bench around the corner. I then asked to pray for him. He had a stroke a few years ago and his right side was paralyzed. He let me pray a few times. We didn't see any improvement at that time.

The third guy I met outside a Tim Horton's coffee shop. I was sitting in my vehicle using their free Wifi after being at a marsh outside the city for a few hours. He had pulled up in his vehicle near mine and I noticed some friends of his walk up and start talking with him at his window. I went in to get myself a coffee and came back out wondering if any of them needed healing so I looked over but didn't see anything in the natural right away, so went back about my business. A few minutes later I looked over again and noticed that a wheel chair was now outside the vehicle and the driver had his door open to it. I hopped out of my car and asked to pray for him. We prayed a few times but didn't see him receive feeling or movement back in his legs just then. He was paralyzed from the waist down. He did report feeling tingles in his body though.

The first and the last guys were both Christians and they were thankful for the prayer. The middle guy did not seem to me to be a born again believer. He knew the truth about Jesus, but I had the sense that he wasn't walking with Him. I shared the gospel with Him and I am sure those seeds will grow.

I believe that God's word is true and that certain signs follow believers. I am a believer, and I laid hands on them, and now they will recover. Mark 16:18 says so. And God does not lie. I encouraged each one of these guys with those words.

I have run into people a while after praying for them and not seeing any visible sign of improvement at the time of prayer, but they have said that a while after leaving me they were well. The symptoms had left and their situations had changed. And they knew that God had done the work in them. I also encouraged all three of these guys with those words.

I am always believing for the dramatic and instant healing miracles, but don't always see that..., yet! I will see them more and more, I know it!

Holy and righteous Father, Your kingdom come, You will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Be glorified in the Son, through me. I want to partner with You, and make myself available to You, every day in any way. Let Your grace flow, let my mind be renewed, and to God be the glory, to man be freedom. In the name of Jesus! Amen!

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!

Drive-by Healing - In Jesus - 05-07-2014

I was craving a burger for a couple weeks. I see my bro Koffi on facebook tonight talking about going to Burger King before work so I had enough dreaming about having one and decided it was time to go get not one, but two, Whopper Jr.s. :)

On my way back, I find there are no parking spots on my street any longer. I was a little perturbed but drove around looking. Nothing found one street over, so I thought, *maybe one opened up on my street now.* Drove back and saw a guy walking on the road toward me with crutches.

I stopped next to him and asked him "Hey man, what's up? What happened?" He says "I'm just walking to my car." I clarified, "No, what happened why you have crutches?" He says something like "I just had surgery on it a day ago" Or two days ago, something like that. I forgot how many days to be honest. I asked if he had any pain and he said there was a lot of pain. I asked if I could pray for him all the while I'm still sitting in my car with my left arm hanging out my driver's side window and my head poking out and he says "Sure." I asked him to come a little closer to me so I could put my hand on him and he obliges. I put my hand on his wrist and command healing to his leg in the name of Jesus.

He gives a bit of a nod of approval and says with a little surprise, "It feels better." I asked how much and He says "95% better." I asked him to try walking without the crutches but said he isn't supposed to try that yet. I didn't press it. After all I am just in my car while he's standing next to it. I asked him to put pressure on it and he said he could definitely put more pressure on it. I asked to pray again as I wanted it 100% better and he ok'd that too. I repeated the steps again thanking Jesus for healing him and showing him that He is real and loves him.

By this time a car is coming toward and has just about got right in front of me. So I wrap it up real quick and thank him for letting me pray. He says "Anytime". Haha! I laughed and said "A drive by healing." to him and carried on my way as he continued on to his vehicle.

I did find a parking spot just about 100 feet or so down the road from there. Thank You Jesus!

It amazes me how God can use us sometimes. I look forward to more strange situations like this, haha!

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
