1. Admit I'm a sinner in need of a savior. 2. Confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is God in the flesh and that He died and arose from the dead to pay in full the debt of my sin. 3. Be baptised as a public declaration and symbol of dying to sin and being raised again to new life in Jesus. 4. Be filled with the Holy Spirit as a sign of that new life.

Pentecost Sunday, and Tonya (my wife) wanted some ginger ale for her upset tummy. As we left New Seasons, we saw this homeless dude asking for cash. I told him I didn't have any cash, then asked if I could pray for him. He replied, "Right here? No, man, I don't believe in street prayin'". I told him it would just take a couple minutes, but he still declined, but he said I could pray for him at home. He told me his name was, "Ivan", then I told him to expect a miracle. He smiled as we walked away. It was right then that I remembered I had brought some cash for the Tamale Man @ church, but he wasn't there today so I had some cash after all. I asked Tonya what I should do, as I was putting the cart away. She told me to pray in tongues and ask God. When I got book to the car she asked if I got anything, but I hadn't. Then she reminded me of a Randy Kay book, that I just read, of his encounter with Jesus. Short story long the Lord tells Randy that He (Jesus) is the least of these. I literally read that last night! So I take a 5 spot and walk back to Ivan and say, "Ivan! You just got your miracle! I just found this in my car. Can I buy 5 minutes of your time to talk?" For the next 15 minutes we (mostly Ivan) talked about where he came from, Noah, Abraham, Jesus, Eastern Mysticism, Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, and being righteous and doing good. I asked my Lord to give me the words to say. I told Ivan about how God had come to earth as a man to restore relationship with us, and that ever since Eden He's wanted to have that friendship with us again. I spoke of the Holy Spirit speaking to us in a still, small voice that sounds like our conscience, and if you ask God to show you the truth, that's how He'll tell you. I asked him, again, if I could pray for him and he replied as before, however this time I persisted and asked him if I could put my hand on his shoulder. He was a little reluctant, but he allowed me to. I prayed that Jesus would become real to him. That he would show himself to Ivan in a dream, become real to him there, and reveal Truth to him. I prayed, "Jesus, you know how so much Ivan loves you. Please become real to him. Come to him in a dream, and show yourself to him." As I left I asked him if I could give him a hug, but instead he held out his hand and we shook. Funny thing; Ivan seemed to have insight into the old Testament (of which he bought up himself). His appearance seemed to be a mix between Keith Green and that picture that that girl painted of Jesus. I don't know my beloved, but whatever we do to the least of these....well, you get the picture. Anyway, seed planted.

After kiteboarding with the Sauvie Crew, I prayed for a fellow boardhead's knees. I asked another one if they wanted to see something cool. When I went to pray for him, I forgot his name but I wouldn't let that stop me. I asked him if I could pray for his knees and he said, "Yes". After that I asked him to test his knees and he did. I asked him how they felt and he answered, "Good, but they're usually bad after kiteboarding hard. I'm going to get an MRI soon." Then I prayed, in the mighty name of Jesus, that his knees are healed and the MRI will prove it. I proclaim his healing.

My devotional time: After getting ready for work, I get a hot cup of coffee, recline, and listen to worship music on Pandora. I place a Jewish prayer shawl over my head and speak the lyrics. I find that speaking the lyrics frees my mind to concentrate on worshipping Him. During the commercial breaks I take a sip of coffee and pray in tongues and ask God to show me what I'm supposed to do that day (from the book of my life written before the foundation of the world). I also thank Him for drawing my kids back to Himself, even though my 👀 don't see it yet.
