At a flea market, a woman who was carrying a folded up walker was walking towards me. I just could not help myself to ask her, “Are you using that walker?”
“Oh, no, it is for my mother. She cannot walk anymore.” she responded. I introduced myself and she told me her name was Rose. I asked if her mother was here at the market and said that I was a minister and could I pray for her?
“No. She is at home.” she replied. “No problem.” I said as I took out a business card, “Just hold on to this business card and we will infuse it with the power of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus, so that as soon as she touches it, she will be healed.” “Really?” Rosa’ s eyes were getting really big as we both held on to the card.
We prayed over the card and I instructed her to give it to her mother and tell her what we did and to instruct her to do what she could not do before and she will be made whole and able to walk again.
in the book of Acts, God wrought so many miracles by the hands of the apostle Paul that they took handkerchiefs and napkins from his body, that he had merely touched, to the sick and the diseases departed from them and the evil spirits went out of them. These cloths were infused with the power of the Holy Spirit, the same power that resides in us that raised Jesus from the dead and quickens (enlivens) our mortal bodies.
She thanked me and I asked her if she believed in Jesus. “O, yes.” she said. “Are you born again?” I continued. “No, I don’t think so.”
Rose was Roman Catholic and we were able to lead her into praying to become born again and to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We sent her off with a gospel of John to read and encouraged her to call us any time.
And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. Acts 19:11-12
