SO, LAST NIGHT I WAS AT CHURCH....

SO...

We have been attending a series on GRACE at church on Wednesday nights. The variety of ways that grace comes to you and can make you whole. I use my grace to do healing prayers during services at church. I found this gift one day when I was a little lost for reasons to attend church. Not had a problem attending since. You go to church - you get filled and renewed - and then you get sent out to use your serving of grace (which is immeasureable, really).

At any rate...

We were given and exercise to do for about 20 minutes. Read a Scripture passage and listen to what it says to you and pray with it... So I start, read the directions for the exercise through. Read the verse. Started to follow along... reading - then reading again - then the third instructed reading - I found these words:

Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him,

"What do you want me to do for you?"

"Lord, I want to see," he replied. Luke 18:40-41

I cannot tell you how many times I have asked that question to people that we pray over. It was there sitting in the silence that I discovered a very sacred thing.


The healing happens when the person tells God what it is that He/She would have Him/Her do.


That one request from the broken to the divine heals the person, makes them whole.


They sit there as a child, asking the Father/Mother in response to the question:
"Dear Child of mine, what would you have me do for you today?"
And then we pray and if we stay out of the way, God hears the prayer, and the faith of a little child will help to heal them.
I have never seen physical healing on the spot. I have seen people turn over burdens and let God carry them because they are too hard to deal with alone. I have felt the heat and the warmth of the Spirit fill the room. There is an energy there that surpasses all other life experiences.
SO
When you pray
Hear the words: What would you have me do for you?

Then tell the Lord the truth, be honest and sincere, and wait. The healing grace will arrive to make you whole...
One secret - the answers to your healing prayers are never what you expect.
They are 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
times better.

Ask, and it will be given to you.
Seek, and you will find.
Follow, and I will lead you to eternal life.

Thanks for the advice - sometimes the simplest answers are the best.
