A week in review

Last Thursday morning I went to the Thanksgiving Day parade with my family.  We hung out in Central Park watching the floats go by. My boys enjoyed climbing on the rocks and riding on the train more than the parade. Boys will be boys.
While we were watching I saw the young boy from the picture in the green coat and crutches (Wheres Waldo?). I felt the nudge from God to find a way to pray for his knee. So I identified the father and asked what happened to his son. He injured his knee in a basketball game 4 days prior. The family was visiting NY from Michigan.  I told him I’ve seen God do some amazing things recently and asked if I could pray for his son. He hesitantly gave the ok. I said a quick prayer asking God to bring healing in Jesus name. (1 Peter 2:24) I asked the boy to assess it and he said he felt 50% relief of pain immediately.  I spoke quickly about how amazing God was and we parted ways. God continues to reaffirm that He wants to display His love for His kids in supernatural ways. There are people around us everyday that God is looking to reach and He’s continually looking for people to work through. Isn’t it amazing that He gives us the ability to partner with Him on this mission. It’s humbling.
On Sunday God brought a significant release of burdens from a young man’s life through prayer and the presence of the Holy Spirit. He felt an amazing sense of peace and relief as well as a measure of healing to an injury. It only happened because the Holy Spirit was given the open door to work and do what He needed to in the young man’s life. (Luke 4:18)
My mother came to hang out with our family for a couple days.  On Monday night she was experiencing shoulder pain, we prayed, and God brought immediate relief.
Wednesday night at our men’s Bible study God came powerfully in many ways. My buddy Tony prayed for one of the other guys who had pain in his upper back and it totally went away.
Galatians 1:3-5
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:  To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Be encouraged,
John
