Marcos, male, approximately 30 years old, responded to a word of knowledge, “Hodgkin’s Lymphoma” and HIV. He approached me for prayer in response to the work of knowledge. As I interviewed him, he shared a number of very personal things that involved unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, and resentment. He is born again and has repented of lifestyle issues that lead to this illness. He has forgiven those who hurt and judged him, including the church and his mother for trying to abort him.
Elizabeth came forward for prayer. She was about 17 years old, and she wanted prayer because she suffered from depression, which caused her to be sad all the time. Although I could not get a clear answer as to how long she had suffered with depression, I trusted that God could meet with his daughter.
A young man came up name Wellington. He was struggling with some emotional issues related to loss, depression, anxiety, and emptiness. He was feeling lost and pulled away from Jesus in the midst of his pain. I prayed for healing and comfort over his heart and mind. And, I prayed for the Holy Spirit to come and fill the emptiness he felt in a new way. I also broke off a spirit of fear and doubt. As I finished praying, joy spread over his face and he was tearing up. He said he felt something lift off and felt very light and at peace. As we talked a little more, I asked if he wanted to rededicate his life to Christ. He said, “Yes.” I led him through a prayer. At the end, I could sense the Holy Spirit was with him and restoring hope.
I had been given a word of knowledge for cancer of the blood. I noticed a man who had been sitting with a woman that appeared to be quite moved in the spirit. He kept pointing at me and the moment Randy released them to come forward for prayer, he guided her to me. He shared through the translator, once again DJ, that she had ovarian cancer.
A young woman came forward and the despair upon her face was palpable. She related through the translator that she experienced pain when having relations with her husband. She had been to doctors but they could not find anything wrong with her physically. As a result, her marriage was suffering.
