Pain Goes and Starts to Go From Two Elderly Folks - In Jesus - 03-19-2015

I was walking at lunch out of my work building and noticed a elderly woman who had a cane up ahead. I approached her and asked if she was in pain. She said she was in her feet as she just had surgery. I told her that I pray for people and Jesus heals them. She said "Oh I know!" So I asked if I could pray for her. She said she must go now as she had to catch a bus. I assured her it would only be a few seconds and had to convince her a couple times. She gave in and said "Ok." I placed my hand on her shoulder and commanded her feet to be pain free and healed in Jesus' name. She said thank you and started to walk away from me. I yelled out to her, "Do you feel different? Is it better?" She said "Yes, thank you." And kept going without looking back. haha!

A little further on my walk I saw an elderly gentleman walking toward a commemorative plaque next to a Gandhi statue. He was walking in a way that made me think he had pain. I approached him while he was reading the plaque and said "They say he was a man of peace." And he replied, "Supposedly." I said, "Are you in pain?" He responded, "Yes, how did you know?" I explained "I saw you walking and thought you walked as if you had pain. I am a man of peace too, and I have the Prince of peace, Jesus, living inside me. I pray for people and He heals them." asking if he would like to be healed of the pain. He said "Well, I don't know if it will do you any good, but it won't hurt, so go ahead." I found out he had pain in his knee (recent surgery) and shoulder at a level of about a 3 or 4 out of 10. I put my hand on him and commanded healing in Jesus' name. He reported it being better but still a little sore and he would only know about the knee if he walked for a while. I prayed one more time for the shoulder and then he said it was still a bit sore but noticeably better. I shared the gospel with him and explained why he noticed it getting better, in that it was a sign so that he might repent and believe. He said that if He (Jesus) heals him he may become more faithful. I trust he's pain free now as believers lay hands on the sick and they recover.

And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." Mark 16:15-18

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
