Headache Leaves - In Jesus - 10-26-2014

I stopped at 7/11 today after church on my way to the park for a walk. As I was mixing my pumpkin spice latte with some coffee I noticed a girl asking one of the store clerks where their Aspirin was located. I tried to hurry up and finish to see if I could get to her before she paid for the pain pills but I didn't make it in time. I quickly paid for my drink and on my way out I caught her in the parking lot just before she drove out in her vehicle. I walked up to her car door and made motion for her to roll down her window. She did and I explained that I overheard her asking for the aspirin and I wanted to know if I could pray for her headache. She said sure. I thought it was funny because I wasn't even sure she had a headache but said that right off. I then confirmed with her if she did have a headache and she did. I found out from her that the headache was at a pain level of 6 out of 10. She allowed me to put my hand on her shoulder to pray, so I commanded the headache to leave her in Jesus' name. She was a little surprised and said it was almost completely gone. I asked to pray one more time and she obliged. This time I placed my hand on her head and commanded it to go. She said it was completely gone now. Even the dark circles under her eyes were disappearing. I thought that was cool! I then found out that she was raised catholic but she was not born again. I shared the gospel with her and then encouraged her to seriously consider giving over her life to Jesus to follow Him and be restored to Him and forgiven of her sins. She thanked me for praying for her and wished me a happy sunday.

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
