Matthew 10:7-8

As you go, preach, saying, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

Word of knowledge opens door for healing.

 It was a little rainy today but still quite a few people were out and about.
 After preaching to the people that were hanging out, we decided to knock on a few doors.
At one home a woman opened the door, we greeted her and said "the kingdom of heaven is at hand" and asked if anyone needed prayer, or healing in their body

She quickly said "no, thanks for asking", and proceeded to shut the door, before she did though one of us spoke up and said  "hey does anyone have pain in their foot". She looked around as there was 6 or 7 people in the living room and said "no". We politely told them to have a nice day and she shut the door.

We shrugged it off and I began to explain to a new believer that was with us to not get discouraged, sometimes when we get a word of knowledge for someone just because they say no it doesn't always mean it was a wrong word.

Just then the door opened again and the woman said " I'm sorry, actually one of us does have much pain in her left ankle, you guys just totally messed us up with that.

They invited us in and we introduced ourselves, told them that God's kingdom really is at hand and asked if we could pray.

Tasha, the girl with the pain in the ankle, said the pain level was about a 7 and she also had lupus. We explained a little about what we were going to do and then prayed. The pain level went down to about a 4 and so we prayed again and the pain level went down to 0 she was tearing up quite a bit and began to tell us about the lupus.

We prayed for complete healing and encouraged her about God loving her so much. We got to pray over the house and just encouraged everyone in the room. They thanked us and were pretty stunned at what had just happened. (so were we by the way).
