Today at Starbucks with Kris and Jesse a woman named Kathy was healed of knee problems saying there is no more pain, "I can feel something in there (energy) still. It feels like when I met Jesus!”
The Presence leadership team ministered to two staff members at a local church after their staff worship time. Our team got words of knowledge for female uterus/ovary stuff and migraine around left eye. We told a woman we knew there in leadership and she knew exactly who had those needs. She brought them over for prayer and we got to minister in healing to both of them.
For 12 years Chris had a diagnosed sleep disorder. She would rarely sleep more than a few hours which left her exhausted and in need of medication to get just those few hours of sleep. In a corporate gathering, a word was called out for sleep disorders being healed.
Jeanie was in a car accident 5 years earlier than we met her. She had nerve damage tons of pain which was permanent. Her pain in her foot was so bad that she could not sleep with her foot under any cover.
A woman who had never been to a meeting like this showed up because her friend had invited her to “experience more of God.” That evening, we worshiped for three plus hours with no instruction as the Holy Spirit wouldn’t let the team release anything from the front or even welcome people. The lady had a hereditary spine condition in her back from birth; it was curved and always in pain. Without thinking about getting healed (or even knowing she could be healed), but just sitting in worship, she felt pain leave her back and her spine straighten. She asked somebody to go to the bathroom with her and check, and after checking three times, they confirmed to her that her spine was completely straight!
Hearing a testimony of a creative miracle of a bone being replaced in a leg, a man discovered the divots in his leg had become smooth! Without our instructing him to do so, he reached down and felt his leg where he had had large divots, and they were all almost completely filled in! It was an old football injury from years before where the upper leg was severely torn in three places.
An exchange student from Bolivia came up to receive the baptism of the Spirit, and when we touched her, her wrist that she had fractured a few days before was instantly healed. She removed her brace and kept saying, “I can’t believe it.”
In a meeting, Kris pointed at a girl and said, “The love of God is on you.” She instantly broke down crying, and she tore off a cast she had on her arm and was completely healed! She had been in a severe car accident a few days earlier, and it was a miracle that she was alive. She had bruised ribs still and a broken wrist and as he pointed at her, she was healed of all the lingering effects.
A 14-year-old boy, while raising his hands to heaven and was healed without a word of knowledge or a specific prayer for him; he was just healed in the Presence. He had had albino white hands with no pigment in them since as long as he could remember. The Presence touched his hands held to heaven, and all the color came back into them! He came and testified a few nights later about his healing. He said that he had also had a cut on his finger, which hadn’t healed and was causing him nerve problems. He reported that the cut instantly healed, and all the nerve problems stopped!
A pastor from another church heard testimonies of things God was doing, so he decided to come by and check it out for himself, being a little skeptical but genuinely interested in all that God can and does do. He had had sciatic pain for four years so extreme that he didn’t sleep well at night and had just ordered a special lift right before he came to the meeting. No word of knowledge for sciatic problems was called out, nor did he stand up to receive prayer. He didn’t feel anything happen, but left the meeting without any pain. He didn’t tell anyone for two days because he wanted to test it out. He lifted and moved a heavy load of lumber out of his truck, which would normally cause him so much pain he wouldn’t be able to get out of a chair after sitting down. He has had no pain or problems with his sciatic nerve for the first time in 4 years and is sleeping through the night every night! He testified a week later in the meeting about what God had done for him just in the Presence, and how they canceled the order for the lift.
A teenage girl was sitting on the floor during a meeting where one of our team was sharing. Used to constant back pain, she noticed a strange feeling come into her back which she later described as pins and needles - as if her back was going numb. She stood up and began to test out her back during church announcements as this feeling happened just after worship time before any message had been preached or shared. Not having been to church much she did not understand protocol and began to move around while everyone else was seated. From the front, the leader asked her what was going on. She described how she had a birth defect in her spine which caused constant pain and had resulted in 4 surgeries wherein metal rods were placed along her spine to stabilize it and limit mobility. She had never been able to touch her toes and physically could not because the metal inhibited such movement. In front of a crowded room she then touched her toes for the first time in her life!
A deaf mute came into a meeting where one of our team was sharing. Folks on the team realized he was not paying attention and that's when they realized he was deaf and mute. They began to pray for him during the preaching and ministry time. As they did, he heard the first words in his life through his own ears and began to form words for the first time!
A pastor named Steven came to a meeting where our team was sharing, He had been in a car accident some 13 years prior. The trauma and pain had left him with limited mobility in his neck and back. He could only turn his head so far before it would stop. Pain was normal to him. In the Presence of God we watched as He was able to rotate his head both directions with ease and without pain and then touch his toes for the first time since the accident - pain free
A member of our community was sharing in a meeting. During the message a young girl of 11 or 12 was crying and she did not know why. God was simply touching her. It was one of those times where the team member felt if they did anything, they might just mess up what was happening. They asked the girl to close her eyes. As she did, she saw and felt Jesus next to her holding her hand. Pain that had been throughout her body from a disease which caused an odd rash and much pain and discomfort was gone in that moment and her skin color changed, irritation going away.
Out to eat at a restaurant, one young man felt the Presence of God touch his knees as the manager came over to give them menus. He asked the manager if she had knee problems. The manager said yes I do. The young man asked if he could pray for her. Before he had the chance the woman manager jumped backwards exclaiming, "what just happened to me!" She had felt heat shoot through her legs and all her pain had left. The two young men and a pastor who were out to eat turned to eachother realizing God was doing something special. The began to go table to table praying for people who were very open to prayer. A woman's deaf ear opened when one of the young men asked who at a table had that problem. Another woman had multiple surgeries on her neck and foot and both were healed. This continued for close to three hours as 50 some healings occurred and well over a dozen people prayed to receive Christ over their lunch.
Two folks in our community were eating lunch together and a girl came over to them to raise money for a girls drug rehabilitation home. As she stood a few feet from them they asked if they could pray for her but before they did or she said yes she began to exclaim - I feel God! She began to swoon and describe how she felt electricity all over her body and was so overwhelmed. She began to cry and the two spoke words of encouragement over her and what she was called to.
4 years ago I went into the Heart Specialists office and they could no longer find Lily's heart problem. I had friends pray for deferred hope and shortly after God healed Lily's heart. All 3 doctors I saw were shocked. I wasn't because Jesus loves us so much and is about healing. Lily has a high calling on her life to bring Joy and healing to others!
My wife and I and kids are all sitting inside the car eating and I see this older man walking slow with an hand held crutch type thing so i said to my wife, "Go get'm honey," and without hesitation, she steps out of the truck and walks up the couple and asks to pray for the man. He couldn't move his hand and has an issue with his brain and his walking due to a stroke. As she is praying for him, he starts crying and feels heat all over his head. He starts to feel so much better and says and can all the sudden move his hand now. Everyone was touched. It was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen. Just loving on people in Jesus name.
The husband said he had been in lots of pain for 9 months due to sciatica. I asked if he had pain and he said, "no" not until I try to use it. He added that he had hurt his knee and was hobbling. I suggested we start with the knee since it would be measurable. I laid hands on His knee and prayed. Instantly he said, "wow, it feels normal" he proceeded to walk around, bend it, use it and sure enough, HEALED!! Then I put my hand on his back and prayed for the sciatica. He said he felt warmth all along where the pain normally is. We assumed this was also healed and he went to the gym to test it. He normally would not be able to do squats and guess what? He broke his record for squats and with heavier weight!!
I have always had one leg shorter than the other. Although it wasn't causing any pain, it has become increasingly annoying and more apparent over the past year. I reached out to Segal to pray over my legs. Yesterday she did just that and I experienced something that changed me forever! As she held my ankles and prayed over my legs, I felt a twitching, shaking and literally saw my leg even out almost immediately! It took me a couple minutes to stand up because my leg felt quite different and I was in so much awe over what had just happened! Jesus instructs his followers to heal!
We took a "wrong turn", and saw this dude laying on his back in pain. Segal got out and prayed then had him sit up and she said, " I bet you have one leg shorter than the other." She put his legs together and sure enough one was an inch shorter than the other. She prayed, it grew out on the spot and he felt fine after. Living Jesus style is so fun!!!
So I have been stepping out and praying over people some more for healings and another awesome thing happened today at the church where I guest led worship. It was at the very end of the service and everyone had pretty much left the building and I was talking to a lady and her husband about things and as we were talking I looked down at her hand and noticed a hand-cast-brace thingy and I asked her what was wrong. She said she had a lot of pain in her thumb area and her hand had some issues. So I asked her if I could pray for it, she said yes. I placed her hand on top of mine and prayed. She said, "I feel an intense heat," and she didn't want to move her hand away, she even got a little dizzy. Then she said, "I don't have any more pain in my hand," with a perplexed/excited voice. Then her husband said she has had a back issue where she was always in a lot of pain and had a curved spine. She could only stand for short increments at a time. I placed my hand on her back and prayed and I said do you feel anything and she said, "I feel no pain!" We were all excited and I started to cry thanking God for using me as a vessel to work through. He wants to do these things through His people. She stood the rest of the time as we talked and thanked God for 15 minutes before I left and she was stunned because she would normally have sat down by then. Woo hooo yay God.
The neighbor lady comes over today hobbling from a hurt knee and looking for her cat. As we talk, she says her daughter (in her 20s) is bed ridden with pain in her leg and I asked if one leg was shorter than the other and she said yes. So I told her I'll send my wife over right away. So my wife goes over there and 15 minutes later comes back with a huge smile on her face. She told me, the older lady's knee got totally healed and starts tripping out that there was all the sudden zero pain and felt heat all over her entire body. While she's still blown away, My wife then asks the daughter to sit back and grabs her legs and prays for it to start growing out because it was 1 inch shorter than the other. She feels her bones snapping/cracking and it grows out in front of her eyes! The girl is amazed and says she has been having a ton of anxiety and still does... so she prays for complete peace while touching her shoulders and the girl feels heat all over her body and complete peace takes over and fills her. The girl starts walking around the house normal and can't believe that just happened. So they got rocked by God and as my wife is telling me the story, I grab my phone and tell her we need to call a lady who has been needing healing (a friend asked us to call this woman). Long story short, this girl on the other end feels heat all over body we pray in Jesus name and she gets healed on the spot.
A couple that attends Presence have this testimony:
Yesterday, I walked into Vons supermarket to buy a coffee to help me stay awake and I saw a lady roll by in one of those electric carts and as she passed me, I thought to myself, "I would sure love to see her healed," but I let her pass by. I ordered my coffee and as the starbucks person made it I walked around the store. I made my way to the back near the frozen section and saw that same lady. I wanted to pray for her but didn't want it to be awkward. So I asked, "Can I help you find something?" She said, "I'm looking for some jello." So I said, "Hold on," and searched the store for some jello and brought some back to her. She said thanked me and said, "You are so sweet." We talked for a bit about her life and she shared that she struggles with depression and has a lot of pain in her knees. I asked, "Would you let me pray for you?" She said yes and I knelt down right there in the frozen food section and put my fingers on her knees and started to pray, I felt a lot of heat and so did she, she started to sweat, I knew God was touching her body. "Do me a favor and stand up," I said. She started to walk and then she stopped and looked at me with a look of surprise and said " what did you just do?!!" I told her, "Jesus just touched you." All the pain in her legs had left, praise Jesus! She let me pray for her depression and she said she felt a lot better and I got the chance to tell her how much God loved her!
