One lady he ministered to had a spirit cast out of her life. I got chatting to another woman about God’s love and presence. She then told me she was a Spiritualist. I gave her my card and invited her to contact me, as I knew a Scottish lady called Laura Maxwell who had been a Spiritualist and had an amazing story to tell. The woman said she’d get in touch with me, so hope she does.
An old Welsh lady stopped and asked for prayer. Her husband had died 9 months previously and she was missing him. She told us she had been a Pentecostalist in the past. She also told us she had a large box at home which showed that General Wm Booth, founder of the Salvation Army was a member of her family tree! After a chat the old woman said, quite out of the blue, “I want to give my heart to Jesus!” From what she had previously said, I’m sure she had before. Nevertheless, I wasn’t going to put her off! I said:”do you want to pray in your own words, or do you want to follow me?” She chose the latter, so I slowly led her in a prayer of repentance and surrender to Jesus. It was lovely!
Just before we finished on the street for the day, a guy in his late 20’s/early 30’s came over for prayer. We asked what he wanted prayer for. He replied: “it’s an illness, but I don’t want to say anything about it”. We offered our best prayers up to a loving God who doesn’t condemn or judge us on the way. We spoke life and health and healing to his blood, bones, organs, muscles, tendons and sinews in Jesus’ name. The guy semeed to appreciate it and as he left said he was feeling a bit better. I encouraged him to thank Jesus as he went, for what He was doing in his body.
After our time on the streets we went back to a local church for lunch, a time of worship and a talk from Mark Marx. As we worshipped, the Holy Spirit came upon me powerfully and I felt that Jesus was pouring into me a double portion of what I had given out on the streets earlier. What a wonderful God! The day ended with a time of in-church ministry where several folk received healings. One lady’s left leg grew out several inches as I was watching above the leg as it took place. I took photos of the leg “before” and “after”. These are they: (click photos for larger version)
