Friday, 6/22/2012, My wife and I stopped at Starbucks in Safeway, and I saw a girl sitting at a table. I knew in my heart that God wanted to touch her so I went up and asked her if she wanted prayer and told her how the Lord put her on my heart. I asked if she had any pain, she said yes all over. Then she pointed to her heart and said here mostly. I found out she was addicted to heroin and wanting to break free. I shared with her my testimony of how I came to the Lord, and I told her about the lady whose broken arm was healed last Friday. If God can heal a broken arm, He can heal an addiction. We prayed and she broke down crying, then I started speaking life and identity into her. Her name was Asia if you want to keep her in prayer.
We gathered together and before we headed out to witness we gathered together and prayed where we should go. I wanted to go to the mall, but I had a vision of Target and Winco, two stores we were asked to stop praying for people. My wife got the same vision so we headed out to Winco first.
We stopped by Winco and prayed for a few people throughout the store. We ran into Teresa, a lady who we prayed over a while ago to find a job. She was homeless when we prayed. Now she’s staying with someone and has had a major increase in interviews since we prayed. We prayed over her again. Then we found out her leg was in pain, mostly in her knee. After a few times praying, she said she felt heat through her leg in all the area’s it was hurting her. All the pain left.
Then, we were going around Winco asking people if we could bless them, one lady didn’t think we were serious so she asked if we were mocking. I said no and told her about what just happened to Teresa. She asked if we could pray over her knee so we started praying. We also prayed for her flat feet too. She said it started to feel better, and it looked like she was getting arches in her feet but not sure. After that she prophesied over my wife and I a lot of confirmations.
We then left for Target. We prayed over two girls walking out of target that got really touched and then in the store we prayed over a few people who got impacted including a worker named Josh. One lady was sitting down with her nephew at a table by the entrance and she started laughing at us with her nephew when we asked them if they would like prayer. I started telling them about their hearts and they kind of freaked out. We left and ran into a guy with a dog sitting on a bench. His family was falling apart and he was going through a lot of things so we prayed with him.
After that, we were driving back and saw that the movie theater was packed full of people. We went up to the crowds and got to pray over a lot of people. The first were two girls, my wife and I prayed and we got some prophetic words over them. Then, we started talking to a gang and they were closed off. My wife, Chelsea, started talking to three girls and two of them mocked and left but one girl stayed and she started prophesying over the girl and she was impacted.
While this was going on, Joe and I were talking to two guys in the gang. I started getting words over them and started telling them about their hearts. Carlos was a warrior. I found out he lost both his parents and the gang was all he had and he had so much hurt and anger in his heart my heart was breaking for him. I told him that I loved him and that I’ll be praying for him. Marco’s I saw faith in him, He’s a natural leader and has a gift to influence those around him. We started sharing about Jesus and I asked if I could bless them and they said yes but as I started to pray Carlos interrupted me and didn’t want prayer.
After that we started heading out and one of the gang kids yelled out “Hail satan,” So I looked at Chris and said come on, let’s go back. We walked back and then Carlos and Marcos looked like they were ready to fight asked me what I was going to do. I told them I won’t fight but I wanted to shake the person’s hand and tell them that I love them and God loves them too. They backed up a bit and let me talk, then the crowd said that the guy who said that ran off, which I don’t think he did but it’s pretty funny. I started prophesying over one more of the guys and he didn’t want to hear it. So after that we left.
We got back to the River Church and as we were waiting for Jason to get back with the keys, Joe started playing his guitar we started worshiping the Lord outside. We started gathering a crowd as the people who went out to evangelize started making their way back to the Church.
Testimonies that bring glory to God.
Walk after Christ
