My friend and I were at Wal-Mart, asking the Lord if there was anyone we could pray for or be a blessing to, and we saw this woman in a wheelchair. We decided to go over and help her, as she was trying to reach things on the top shelf. As we started talking, I asked what happened to her foot and she explained that she had broken a few bones in her foot and was unable to walk on it. I asked if I could pray for her and she said yes. After I prayed, she said it felt so much better that she wanted us to keep praying, as she also had nerve damage and wasn't able to feel much in her leg! So we kept praying! She said she started to feel her leg tingle and I was able to get her up out of her wheelchair! Praise the Lord!
For several years I have had severe pain in the joints in my hands. The pain also caused weakness to the point that there were days when I could not even grip the lid on a bottle of pop tight enough to open it. Even picking up small a item was very painful if not sometimes impossible. I work in an auto body shop so I use my hands constantly and many days I would have to take several Aleve to make doing my job tolerable. Two Sundays ago I came to Lifepointe like any other Sunday other than my hands were bothering me more than normal. Through out the service I found myself rubbing the joints in my hands several times. I thought to myself as I always have, Its just the price of getting older and being so hard on my hands my whole life. I never thought the pain would go away and sadly I never prayed for it to go away. Near the end of worship Drew prayed for healing and in that moment the pain instantly disappeared. I have full strength back in my hands and the pain is completely gone. Jehovah Rapha!!!
