Saturday 2/1/2014, we went to Lloyd center and met up with two friends from Multnomah University. We went around praying for people, starting at the food court. I asked a group if they wanted prayer and they all booked it except one guy. His ankle hurt so after a quick prayer, he was healed and shocked as we shared how much Jesus loved him. We went up to another group, and Dem asked if we could bless them. One of the girls looked over at Dem and asked how he knew her name. She heard him call her name before he spoke. Then, we got prophetic words over each one of them and one guy injured his hip playing sports. He freaked out when Jesus healed him.
After that, we went down stairs and Dem ministered to a guy who at first didn’t want prayer, but as soon as the prophetic started flowing the guy was open and hungry for what the Lord wanted to say through Dem. We came across some guys from the Congo. We prayed over them and Dem prayed over one of the guys who had back pain and he looked shocked. He was like, “What did you do to me, my back feels better?” Then he started talking in another language to his friends. He explained it was Jesus and Willie prayed over one of the guys.
We ran into Mark and got to bless him. He was homeless and we’ve ran into him many times before. We got to spread some love to him and let him pray over us. Then, a lady next to us was in a rough spot and the Lord opened the door to pray for her and speak His heart into her situation. I got a word about her lower back and prayed until she said it felt better.
We went back upstairs and I noticed a guy with friends around him with a bad limp. I asked if he injured his knee and he said yes so I said, “Let me see your hand.” He gave me his hand, confused, and I commanded his knee to be healed in Jesus name. He said it felt a little bit better. The elevator door opened and they all got on the elevator. Now, I pray one more time with an audience of all his friends and he started freaking out saying it was completely better. They hurried off and I told them that Jesus loves them so much that He gave his life for them.
I got back upstairs and we went around praying. I came across two girls and one of them wanted prayer to get her 50 cents back out of gum ball machine. I prayed, and nothing happened. I started getting downloads about both of them and got to share the gold God see’s in them. They were really impacted. One of the girls had a bad lower back, so I prayed a few times. She said it felt a little better but was still there.
We started walking around some more and Dem started getting words over a girl. I walked up and got words over her friend, and then Dem asked if she had pain. She said her neck and Jesus took care of that for her. They were really impacted. We explained what a relationship with the Lord looks like and they were really impacted.
After that, a guy walks up to Dem and starts commenting on his shoes, and then asked if he rapped. Then, Dem played a beat and they both started taking turns rapping to it, Dem was representing the Kingdom. Afterword he got to pray over the guy and bless him.
Right after that, we went up to a guy and two girls and asked if they wanted to experience a miracle. Willie and his friend started talking to the other guy, while I got some words over the two girls and was able to bless them. The guy grew up in a religious background but didn’t believe in God. They asked if they could pray that God would show him that He’s real and …….
Here’s the testimony from Willie Pate
“I was talking with this kid about my age who said he had a really religious upbringing. His whole family was christian but he just couldn't believe God was really alive in His life or loved him or anything. He said the one thing that holds him back is because of science, he couldn't believe that God made the world. I told him that God gave him a mind that likes to think and see how the world works, a scientific and intellectual mind, and encouraged him that it was God who gave that to him and that God would reveal Himself to him if he just asked. So I asked if I could pray for him and ask God to reveal himself to him. I asked if he had any pain in his body and he said no. So i just prayed for God to reveal his love to him. When I opened my eyes I looked at him and he was stunned. His eyes were huge and he looked straight on. I asked him how he felt and what he was feeling. He said that when I asked him if there was any pain he didn't want to admit the intense tooth pain he was experiencing because he thought if he told me it would just be like a power-of-the mind type of thing so he didnt tell me. But he said after I prayed, his tooth had no pain at all in it! It totally disappeared when I prayed. I didn't even pray for his tooth and God totally healed him.”
God is so amazing! We prayed over a lot of other people and a lot more things happened. These are just the highlights. God is so amazing, and when we rest in Him, it’s effortless.
Lord, Father, raise up Your Children. Raise the up to look like You! I pray for an increase in divine encounters, increase Lord. I pray that these testimonies of Your goodness would stir a hunger in the hearts of the reader. Praise You and thank You, in Jesus name amen.
