We went down to Parkway Plaza Tuesday to preach the gospel of the kingdom. Earlier that day I read the account in Acts where they prayed,
"grant to your servants that with all boldness they may speak your word and by the stretching forth of your hand to heal signs and wonders may be down in the name of your holy servant Jesus".
Well we prayed that same prayer and that's just what happened!!!
We had the opportunity to preach to some young men and challenge them to respond to the Gospel. One guy named Rayshawn seemed to be very apathetic but after a while we could see him start to track with our message. We basically gave him the simple gospel challenge mixed with some prophetic words about his giftings. He slowly began to respond and understand the message of Jesus paying the price for our sins. It's sad to see how the enemy has blinded the minds of the unbelievers. Many times we spend the first few minutes trying to wake people up to reality. Either by a word of knowledge,prophetic words or just the clear gospel message.
After about 10 minutes of preaching to this guy I began to press in and challenge him about the condition of his soul. I don't usually press in for salvation with people I've just met but you could sense conviction and urgency coming upon this guy. We led him in a prayer to receive Jesus and to get filled with the Holy Spirit We felt something happen and he was visibly touched. We got his # and believe God supernaturally started something in him.
Next we met a woman in a wheelchair named Pat. Shes had Lupus for 20 yrs and said it was starting to affect her brain. Her fingers were balled up and other parts of body paralysed. She was with two other family members and they were very open for prayer. We prayed that God's will would be done on earth as it is in heaven and just broke off all the attack of the enemy. After prayer we asked her to see if there was any change, she could open her hands halfway. She said she couldn't do that before. Thank you Jesus!!!!!
We gave her our number and said call us if we could come minister some more.. She said she was a new believer and had been wanting to get out to a bible study but it's been hard to get out. We said we would come to her, she was very excited and said we would be definitely hearing from her, awesome!!!!!!!!!
