Wednesday 7/24/2013, we met up with twenty something people from Fathers House to bring the Kingdom at Portland State University. We broke off in groups and many saw healings break out and a few gave their lives to the Lord.
Four of us went to the park and started talking to the people. There was strong resistance at first and the first few people we talked to seemed angry. The atmosphere carried a heaviness that we needed to break through. We ran into a guy from Saudi Arabia, and I started talking with him. He let me pray over his leg. Then, I showed him a video on the camera of a guy’s shoulder getting healed. By this time, his brother came up and watched it also. Then I started getting words over each one of them, and they let me pray over them in Jesus name to bless them. While I was praying for them, there was a shift in the atmosphere and everyone felt an intense peace. When we have resistance keep pressing in, when you start praying over people, Holy Spirit dominates the atmosphere. After that, people we talked to were way less resistant.
Two guys and a girl were walking up the side walk. I started talking to them and they let us pray over them. When I was praying, the Lord started giving character profiles about each one and how the Lord wanted to use them. By this time Nathan caught up with us and right off the bat he started giving words over them also. They were traveling from somewhere in CA to Seattle and decided to visit Portland. They just got there thirty minutes before this happened. They started saying how they were just discussing how this trip was going to change their lives and then they ran into us. God is so amazing; I can’t wait to see what the Lord does with them.
We started walking to the max station and on the way, there was a lady walking her cat on a leash. We asked if we would pray and she told us that she had a strong prayer life and would love prayer. She needed a job so we all prayed over her, this time the whole group was getting words over her and saying encouraging things. Then, got a word about her hip, and at first she said no, but then later she said she had pain in it from time to time. We prayed over her hip to be healed and her shoulders. She said she felt good. Then we prayed over her cats hurt leg.
After that, we prayed over another lady who recently suffered a loss of a family member. She started crying as we prayed for her. Then, the group started heading back and Nathan and I ran up to a guy across the street who had cerebral palsy . We prayed for him and he wasn’t healed but he was blessed. We walked down to MCdonalds a few blocks down from where we were meeting. While we were in there I asked the cashier if he had any pain, he said his knee. I asked for his hand and started praying. He said that’s a cool party trick. I asked if it felt better and he said it actually did a little. I shared with him what Jesus had been doing. Then Nathan and I started ministering to two homeless guys that were believers.
I saw one guys tattoo on his chest who was waiting for food. He had wings on a heart, with a sword going through the top. We went outside and started talking to him and his girlfriend. They were so receptive to prayer. I got a word about scoliosis and prayed over the girls back and she felt heat fill her back. Also, we prayed for her flat feet and she felt something going on. We also got so many words over them. After that, I saw that the guy had a burden for truth and the life he has been living has been a contradiction to how God made his heart. I also saw that he was going to set a lot of people free with truth. While we were talking to them another guy walked up and started asking us questions about God and we got to pray for him also.
Now, we were late getting back to share testimonies, so we started running as fast as we can. Suddenly a guy stopped us and asked us for change. I offered prayer and he said, “Yes, pray that I can redeem myself” So we shared with him the power of the redeemer and prayed over him for freedom from addiction and deeper intimacy with the Lord. Then we finally made it back when everyone finished their testimonies and was leaving.
We hung around talking for a bit and the janitors started coming in to clean the school. I heard in my heart knee so I asked a guy if his knee hurt. He said no, then I noticed a lady walking up with a limp to work. I asked her and she said her knee hurt so we prayed and she said it felt a little better. She was so excited we were Christian. She was from Hattie and went to a seventh day Adventist Church. She shared that God gave her a dream recently, that a flood of people were running to this building and giving their lives to the Lord. The building she pointed to happens to be the same building that Fathers House is located.
After that, it was Nathan, Dem, and I. My wife let me stay out to minister longer. We started walking down the max line praying for people. One guy was sitting down with a guitar. I asked if we could bless him and he said he was Catholic and was down for that stuff. He tore his ligaments in his ankle and after a quick prayer, his ankle was healed and we got words over him.
We went back to McDonalds and Nathan prayed over a guy outside, then we went in and prayed over a few people. One guys back got healed. Then we went down to Pioneer square. One there, we prayed over a few more people than came across a group of young homeless guys. One guy started trying to debate us saying that we should buy his drugs, and then claimed he was an angel, Nathan started talking to him while I started talking to the other two, Justin and a girl named sky.
I prayed over Justin and started getting all kinds of words over him. The Lord revealed that Justin was called to be a drug counselor and that he was going to help so many people, also that he was the type of person that would give the shirt off his back to someone in need. He was freaked out because he had been told that back in the day. LOL, He said, “You got my attention now,” and then asked me where I came from so I shared my testimony with him. I asked if he had any pain in his body and his said his shoulder. I prayed over his shoulder and he said it felt fine. While I was talking to him, the Lord downloaded a bunch of stuff about Sky. I saw that she was an artist and that art was like poetry to her and also that she was a nurturing person, a mother to those around her. She was shocked and I prayed over her back to be healed and while I was praying I invited the Holy Spirit to reveal the love of Jesus to her and fill her with His presence. She said that she felt something lift off her and she felt all lite and static. She was like, “Who, that’s intense.”
After that we called it a night and headed home. Thank You Jesus for Your love! That we get to become Your love.
