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.
Saturday 7/6/2013, we hit up Holiday Park. I saw a guy with his hand wrapped up and we prayed over it. He said some of the pain left. After that, I talked to a group of young guys asking them if they wanted prayer. Some of them said no at first but told me they were ready to go dance.
They turned on the boombox and a few of them started doing some dubstep. One guy was sitting down and they all said he was the best dancer, but he wouldn’t dance right there. I asked if any of them had any pain in their body and one guy had a bullet wound right above his knee. After some prayer he said it felt 100% better. He joined in with Dem and Chris praying over his friend. Everyone else said they had no pain and they were good on prayer.
We went up to a table and started talking to two guys and a girl. Chris got that one of the guys was a comic book artist, and Dem got that they were fatherless and he shared how God wanted to be a father to them.
After that, we came around the guys doing dubstep. This time, there was a larger crowd. The one guy who everyone said was a really good dancer said, ok I’m ready to be filmed. He did some dub step and was amazing. He also did a backflip off the bench. While I was filming this, Chris and Dem were getting words over two other guys sitting on a bench.
After that I told three of them what happened with that guys knee and showed them footage of a guy’s shoulder getting healed. After that, I asked if they would like to experience God. So, they had everyone turn the music off and I just prayed, “Holy Spirit come, fill them with Your presence!” One guy jumped and said he felt someone touching his shoulder. I said that was Jesus making Himself real to you. Then, the guy who just danced said, do me next, and another guy, Josh, chimed in wanting to experience God. I asked the whole crowd to pray, Holy Spirit Come!. They did and one guy jumped, then the next guy took off running screaming. Around this time, some of the girls there were trying to distract what was going on but it wasn’t working.
After that, I asked if they had any pain in their bodies. One guy said his wrist hurt, another his ankle, another, his feet. Funny how a lot of them said they didn’t have any pain when I first talked to them, lol. To prove it was Jesus and not just me, I had them pray over each other and one by one, they got healed. One girl shouted in the middle of this, it’s psychosomatic. Then, the guy who took off running came back and his knee hurt. They prayed and it didn’t get healed, they prayed again and he started hitting his knee trying to make it hurt. God is so awesome.
Two of them gave their lives to the Lord. After they received the Lord, I prayed for them to be baptized in the Spirit. The first guy felt fire and tingling fill his chest and his tongue started moving in a strange way. I told him about tongues. The other guy, when I prayed for him to be baptized in the Spirit, he felt fire and tingling enter his chest also. They both were rocked by the Lord. One of the other guys said he was still young and didn’t want to make a commitment, but he let me pray for him. He said he felt a tingling come out of my hand as I was praying for him.
After that, we met up with a girl who was at the Conference on Friday. She had hip and back problems and Chelsea prayed over her until it went away. Then, we headed into the mall and prayed over a bunch more people, got words over some, saw some more healing break out.
God is so amazing. That night, I was praying for those we encountered at the park and the Holy Spirit said, “I like to be invited places, if you invite me I will come.” Then, I had a vision of Jesus standing in front of the group from earlier and taking pieces of His flesh and giving it to them. Then I felt in my heart, “Taste and see that the Lord is good”!
God is searching for those who will be His light in the darkness. He’s looking for those who realize His power to chance lives and become saturated with His love to go to the lost.
My wife and I went to Office Depot in Longview WA. We ran into a guy whose arm was in a sling. I asked him what happened and he said he was chasing his dog and fell on concrete, pushing his elbow into his shoulder. After a quick prayer, the pain left. We kept praying over it and be took his sling off and moved his arm in a circle. He said he couldn't do that earlier. Jesus healed him. He grabbed h...is grandsons stroller and started pushing it.
After that, at Fred Meyer, I noticed a lady whose foot was in a boot. She said a drunk driver hit her and it crushed her foot. She had surgery and has pins holding it into place. I asked her if she could pray and she said YES! All excited to receive prayer. We prayed and the pain left. We kept praying until she said it felt 100% better. She was in tears that someone would pray for her. Also as we were praying, the Lord revealed she had overcame drug addictions in the past and that she had been through a lot of hard things but God was there as her strength through it all, and that He wanted her to see herself as He sees her, precious to Him. She told us that she knows God sent us to her and by this time, her family came up and agreed with her. was just so blessed and encouraged someone would pray for her.
God is so wonderful!
