Saturday, 5/19/2012, My wife and I were at Church and at the beginning of service, Frita, a dear sister in the Lord caught my eye and I knew in my heart the Lord wanted to do something. During the service the Lord put in my heart how Jesus overturned tables in the temple is a picture of how He feels when we are oppressed by the devil (Matt 21:12-13). We are His temple, and our hearts are to be a house of praise. At the end of service I asked Frita what she needed for prayer and I found out she had gout in her foot. We prayed for her foot and it was healed. I had to lean in to talk to her because she forgot her hearing aid, so we prayed for her hearing and I was able to back up a few feet and talk to her with music playing in the background and she could hear me clearly.
We got to Lloyd center and right off the bat we kept getting rejection after rejection. I started getting spiritually attacked and discouraged. I started praying and then I heard in my heart, “Why are you discouraged, My favor is with you.” After that we went up to a bench of three teenagers and we got prophetic words about them and started telling them about their hearts. They were blown away, and we shared that Jesus loves them so much that He would tell us all about them. One of the kid’s ankles was hurt. I felt in my heart to have one of the girls with the guy pray but I ended up praying over it myself and it didn’t get healed. The group was really blessed by us talking with them though.
We got on the max and there was a group of kids and a few adults all wearing rock and roll shirts. They were doing a fundraiser at the Rose Garden. We prayed over two of the older ladies with them, they had back problems, and one of the ladies said she felt warmth as melody prayed over her. The other lady said her back felt fine and that she would know later on if it’s healed. After that, we started doing a prophetic train on the whole group. I looked at one girl and saw she had a powerful anointing for art, after I said that she said she wants to go to school to become an art teacher. The other guy I got music over and he was a guitar player, then one girl melody saw an athletic anointing over her, and I started telling her about her heart. We went through each one and they were really encouraged.
We got off the max at Pioneer Square and ran into a young guy named RayJon. He had a back problem so we prayed and the Lord healed him. After that we shared about how he can know Jesus personally and he gave his life to the Lord.
We walked around the square and ran into three kids hanging out. I told them about the guys back that just got healed and asked if they needed prayer. One of the kids started cussing us out saying that we say the same crap to everyone. As he was cussing us out, his friend invited prayer so we prayed and prophesied over him. He felt God’s presence so strong. Melody was talking to the kid rejecting us and he started asking for mock prayers like can you pray for me to have the powers of superman? Then, he said that if he had those powers, he would fly up to the sky and talk to God himself! So, then we asked if he wanted to talk to God. He said yes and then we shared how we talk to God, He speaks to our hearts. He asked his friend if his friend hears God and his friend said yes. So he called us crazy but he let us pray over him. We all prayed for him to experience God. After we were done, he sat there all wide eyed for a minute. Then Melody asked if he felt anything, he said ya and that it was scary. Then he got up and left.
After that, we came cross a girl named Noel and her boyfriend, I noticed she had a guitar so I asked if I could pray that her music to be blessed. She said yes, and as I prayed with her I got so many prophetic words over her. She got blasted by God’s presence as we prayed over her. We also prayed for her to be baptized in the Spirit after she shared with us that she accepted the Lord in her heart when she was younger and that she walked away from him. She said she prayed for the first time in years the other day and then we showed up. God showed her His love, she is His. There was another girl who we witnessed to. Chelsea and Melody prayed over her and she felt God give her a hug.
After that, Chelsea and Melody were talking to Melissa and two guys walked by. I recognized one of the guys from a few weeks ago, then he had back pain and the Lord healed him. I asked if they would like prayer and one of the guy said a really vulgar prayer request to mock me, the other guy said that his foot is messed up so I prayed and the Lord touched his foot. He said the all the pain left, so the other guy that was mocking me came up to me and asked if I could pray over his feet too. I prayed over his athletes feet and I heard in my heart that it was going to go away quickly. I then prayed over him and started pulling the gold out of his heart and he was in tears. I started telling him about how God designed his heart and how precious he was to the Lord. I also saw that he had problems in the past and a lot of people really hurt him and that God wanted to heal him from that. I asked him if he accepted the Lord in his heart when he was younger and he said he did, so I shared how God didn’t leave him. After that, the first guy I prayed for said his foot started hurting again, so I had the guy I was just prophesying over pray over his friend. He prayed and the guy’s foot was healed.
It amazes me how God can bring a person mocking us to tears by His love for them. God isn’t offended when they mock so we shouldn’t be either. They mocked Jesus on the cross and He said “Forgive them, they know not what they do.” We have no right to ever be offended. Our Messiah wasn’t offended because of us. He loves us more than we can ever mock. We must realize those who mock do not know the love of Jesus, they have never experienced His love. We need to forgive them and let God’s love break through those walls and heal their hearts.
It was getting late so we prayed over a few more people and got on the Max. There was a guy named Robert who gave up his seat for my wife so I started talking to him. I told him he had an amazing heart, and then started reading his mail. The Lord revealed to me about his heart, his negative past experiences with Christianity, and the gifts God’s blessed him with. I talked to him for a while sharing the gospel with him and he was blown away. He said he never thought about the gospel like that. I prayed over him and he felt God’s presence come over him so strong. He was overcome with an amazing peace and everything felt right. He gave his life to the Lord.
God is so amazing. He lifts us up and takes care of every need, He encourages us with we’re down. He is amazing and worthy of all praise. It is not our job to defend Him, it’s our job to love people and let Him defend us. When we’re mocked, we love in return.
Testimonies that bring glory to God.
Walk after Christ
