I’ve always loved the story in the Bible of the woman who, in the midst of a heavy crowd, found her way to Jesus’ robe and touched the very edge of it because she believed if she did that she would be healed. She was healed, of course, since she believed. I’ve been praying that God would swing his robe down low so that it would brush Stephanie and heal her.
Tomorrow morning (Saturday), a friend of a friend who doesn’t know me is driving almost three hours to pray over Stephanie because she whole-heartedly believes that Stephanie is meant to be healed. She’s not the only one who believes this, and you can read that in many of the comments. Stephanie’s healing is, of course, what I want. I think it would be a great way for God to show His power, but I’m heavily biased. (I also know He has already shown His power and will continue to do so, healing notwithstanding.)
To be honest, I find it hard not to be skeptical. I’ve never experienced something so powerful like that, and it’s hard to imagine God still pulling off such miracles these days. For as much as I try to have complete faith in God, I’ve always struggled in this area. I’m sure many of you relate to me. But I know many of you also have seen “big” miracles like that or have experienced them yourselves. I have heard story upon story about such things. I don’t want to limit God or my faith in what He can do. I have come to believe those who have told me that God is saying to “just wait” and I believe the countless people who feel God telling them that Stephanie will be healed. Many of these are people who don’t know me or Stephanie personally, and have no personal motive to feel that way. And now is the time, when the doctors have declared Stephanie to be beyond all hope. Now, God can prove that He is the only One Who can heal her.
We had some serious prayer over Stephanie tonight, asking God to protect her from any oppressing spirits, and it was amazing to feel God’s presence in the waiting area where we were.
If you want, please join us in spirit as we pray for healing for Stephanie Saturday morning from 8:30-9:30am EST. There will be four, maybe five of us in her room literally praying over her, but we all know God doesn’t have boundaries, so you’ll all be in the room with us through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you again for all your love for me and for my wife. I do not deserve it, and I praise God for what He is doing and for how much He loves me (and all of us).
