Here are some pretty cool up-to-date testimonies of what the Lord is doing. Two weeks ago I took a team with me to evanglize in a community in Fredericksburg VA. There we prayed for a lady’s shoulder and she was healed. Praise God! We also met a young guy named Victor. After talking with him for some time he desired to get to know Jesus. So we prayed with him and he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior! It was a powerful encounter and he felt completely new. He was shocked at the change that he felt and was filled with joy. This is what God loves to do.
One last testimony before I close out this post: One of the interns in the Prayer Furnace was having pain in his head, stomach and back. One of the Core group leaders of the internship and I both prayed for him. As Kyle (the CGL) prayed he commanded any attack from the enemy to stop in the Name of Jesus. The intern immediately jumped and reached for his lower back. I wondered if he had felt greater pain, but it turned out that he felt his back, which had been completely still, crack and all the pain left. This was really exciting and left him shocked for some time. We continued praying and as we prayed for him in general he felt his elbow pop and the Lord healed a problem on his elbow he had had for a long time. Next thing he realized was that both his arms were the same length after that time of prayer though they used to uneven in length. God is Good!!
The young man that I mentioned earlier, Victor, received Jesus and had an encounter with God that was a spark to transform his life. He of course needs to continue seeking God now and I will continue trying to follow up with him. But this change from depression and loneliness began with surrendering his life to the lordship of Jesus Christ. He believed that Jesus died to take away his sins and that Jesus was raised from the dead again. He didn’t know how to seek God, but we told him he simply had to ask Jesus to come into his heart. From there we explained that he would have to obey Jesus when he would speak to him, and turn from sinful things that God would show him he had agreed with in his life. Victor experienced the love and peace of God come upon him, and you can too. Jesus is Alive! He didn’t stay in the grave, but He is Alive and He is God. If you want to experience His peace and want to give Him your life I encourage you to pray this prayer or one from your own heart like it.
“Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross 2000 years ago to take my punishment and my sin. I believe that You were raised back to life three days later and are now alive and listening to me. I ask that you will come into my heart forgive me of my sins and transform me. Fill me with Your Love and with Your Peace. I give you my life and will follow You where You lead me.”
If you have prayed this prayer let somebody know. I’d encourage you to read the Gospel of John and ask God to speak to you through His Word, the Bible. You can also let me know if you have prayed this prayer, I’d like to talk with you and pray with you.
Blessings, Jesus is Alive!
