Friday night 5/17/2013, we hit up the Vancouver mall. When we went in we prayed for a guy and got some words over him that he’d been running from the Lord and that God was calling him back. After that, we went into starbucks and there was a guy on the phone telling someone how good God is. We asked if we could pray for him and he started beaming with excitement. He just got out of jail. In Jail he gave his life to the Lord and now that he’s out he’s been on a whole new dependence on the Lord. He lost his house and was going through a lot of struggles but he was overjoyed to know Him. We prayed blessings over him.
We walked up to four people sitting on some couches. We prayed over each of them and got prophetic words over them about who God made them to be and where they are in their walk with the Lord. That really shocked them. Then I got a word about one of the guy’s shoulder. I had his girlfriend pray over it and Jesus jumped on the chance to show His love. His shoulder was healed and he was mind blown. We filmed their testimony and then shared the Lord with them some more.
After that, we went to the food courts. One guy noticed Dems bible and stopped him to talk to him. Dem, Chris, and Chelsea started talking to him and I saw a guy I knew from Walmart with his mother in a wheel chair. I asked if I could pray and she said about six months ago me and a pretty blond lady prayed over her (my beautiful wife Chelsea). I prayed and she said she felt heat in her body. I got back to the group and the guy they were talking to was in debate mode, not wanting to listen to anyone. Chris was telling him that Jesus was the only way and he didn’t want to hear that. After realizing it was a distraction, we all prayed and walked away. We then, saw a girl in a wheel chair and asked if we could pray for her. She broke her ankle, so we prayed and nothing happened. It doesn’t mean something won’t happen later though.
We went down stairs and between the pet store and the kids play area there were some girls standing around. I asked if they would like prayer and they looked at me like I was a weirdo and asked if I was drunk. One girl who was a lesbian jumped in my face, clinching her fist and shouted what the *@*# are you talking about? I said that we wanted to pray and bless her and then she said that she already knows she’s going to hell for all the stuff she’s done. I told her how Jesus paid the price for all the stuff she’s done and she let my wife and I pray over her. One girl wouldn’t say her name but Chelsea got words over her and she freaked out. One of the girls pointed out another girl and said you need to pray for her cause she just had a loss in her family. I asked if I could pray but she wouldn’t let me.
One of the girls walked up to Dem and Chris and asked if they were with us. She couldn’t figure out why Chris had a huge smile so she asked what he was on. He said it’s the joy of the Lord and offered to pray for her to experience it. Dem and Christ prayed over her and she started laughing and bubbling up. Then, they both started getting prophetic words over the group and started sharing the gospel with the girl who was going to hit me. Her countenance changed and she was receptive to what they had to say. Then Chris started getting words over the rest of the group and they were saying that we were weird and freaky, then out of nowhere, Chelsea says who is Jackie? The girl that was suffering a loss said that Jackie is her sister that just passed away two years ago. The whole group got even more freaked out. God is so amazing! Praise the Lord.
After that, Chelsea started talking to a girl outside of starbucks and getting a lot of words about her and Dem and Chris started a prayer chain inside of Starbucks. Then we headed out for Walmart.
At Walmart, I saw a guy who broke his hand. I prayed and few times and he said that it felt a lot better. We went through the store looking for people to pray for. We came across a guy in a motorized cart and asked if we could pray for him, at first he said no, but then let came up to us and started talking to us. He was returning back to the Lord and his friend with him lost his wife five days prior. Dem prayed over him and blessed him and Chris and I prayed over the guy in the chair for a deeper intimacy with the Lord.
I walked up to a girl in pharmacy and asked if I could pray for her, she looked at me angrily and said no. Chelsea then walked up to her and had a word for her. She broke down crying and it was a confirmation that the Lord was with her. After that, Chris got words over one guy and started praying for him to be filled with the Spirit. He started shaking and sweating, and we called it a night.
Praise the Lord, God is so good! He loves to touch people and show them His love, and he wants to do it through you. It’s easy, it’s not about getting a mark in your belt but actually loving someone and wanting to bless them. If your in a line in a grocery store, ask the person behind you if you can bless them and watch what the Lord does. Everyday you have an opportunity to demonstrate God’s love for others.
