Today was amazing! It was like the presence of the Lord flooded every community our teams entered. Divine encounters seem to be everywhere.
We had the opportunity to pray at a home of two young women in a decaying neighborhood. Upon arriving at the door, the ladies greeted us, surprised we were willing to talk to them. We offered them some free burgers and began to ask how we could pray? One lady hung her head sharing how she had just been diagnosed with cervical cancer. The other lady also very defeated, shared how bills were more than they could manage and that life was hard right now. I asked, “is there anything else?” The first lady replied, “ Yes, please pray for my daughter who has a tormenting spirit.” What? A tormenting spirit? A bit surprised by her response, we instantly knew, we must pray and take authority over their home in the name of Jesus! We bowed our heads and prayed for healing, provision, and deliverance. When we were done, the ladies smiled and said “this is the best thing that has ever happened to us.”
Can you imagine living in such uncertainty, pain and torment that the simple prayer of another would make the “best moment that has ever happened to you?”
My friends, that is the power of the name of Jesus and the beauty of the gospel when it is preached to those without hope.
As teams were going all over the communities in another area, a man drove several miles away to catch up to us and ask how he could buy a burger? We told him they were free and we would be happy to give him and many as he wanted. He asked for 6. As we stood their making them we began to ask him some questions about his life and if he had faith. He shared he was an agnostic and struggled with what he truly believed. We stood talking for about 15-20 minutes about faith and trust that come from Christ alone. He didn’t pray to receive Christ but he did say he felt led to go back and watch the Passion of the Christ. Would you join us in praying for Tristan to come to Faith in Christ?
God truly is pulling back the veil and allowing us to see the unseen as we intentionally go door to door sharing burgers, a Bible, and lots of Jesus!
