Friday night 4/19/2013, We went to Clackamas Town Center. At first, everyone we talked to did not want anything to do with Jesus. We kept getting rejection after rejection. We felt led to go outside by the theater, and still the same thing. Finally, Chris said God bless you to a guy walking by and started talking to him. He backslid for a while and was trying to get closer to the Lord. We prayed for him and encouraged him. Also, his back got healed.
After that, we went around praying for a bunch of people. I asked a lady if her ankles hurt and she said her feet did. I prayed without laying hands on her and she said she felt tingling in her feet and the pain left. Then I started getting words over her. I asked her if she knew Jesus and she said she was a Buddhist. I then got a lot of words over her and shared the gospel with her. Her eyes got all watery and I encouraged her to ask Jesus to reveal Himself to her.
One kid walked by us with a bad limp. I asked what happened and he said he sprained his ankle. The Lord healed him after a quick prayer. After that, we went into the piercing shop and there were four teenagers in there. I started talking to them and as soon as I asked if they would like prayer, one of them walked away. The other one told me he was an atheist. I said I’m not asking him to believe me, I just wanted to bless him. Then, I started getting words over each one of them. They were rocked by the accuracy and were commenting to each other how freaky that was. I shared the gospel with them and encouraged them to invite the Lord in their hearts.
We prayed over a bunch more people, one kid broke his fingers because he punched someone. After we prayed he said all the pain left. Chris walked up to four kids and started getting words over each of them. They were rocked and receptive to what he had to say and they let him pray over them.
Towards the end of the night, we went outside and there was a guy standing there with his girlfriend. I asked if they would like prayer and the guy said no, but was shocked we asked. I kept pressing on him because the Lord put him on my heart. Finally I asked if he had any pain in his body. He said he had diabetes and let me pray for that to go. After I prayed, he felt heat flow through his chest. He started telling us that he knows the Lord sent us to him. He used to be passionate about the Lord but was struggling. He said that he was walking away from his faith and the Lord sent us to remind him that He is real, and He is still there for him.
A lot of other things happened that night. God is so good, He wants to use you. He wants to show His goodness through you.
