healings in Lebanese hospital and beyond

Today was interesting.  I had my plans and the Lord seemed to have other plans altogether.  I found myself in a Lebanese hospital visiting with friends and the Holy Spirit began to give words of knowledge and prophetic words for the staff.  I got words about neck problems and two were healed.  I had another about a headache and the woman let me pray for a headache that she suffered from every morning.  While praying for her, she began to feel the Lord's presence in her arm (I had her put her hand on her head).  She turned and began to tell the rest of the staff what was going on.  I got to prophesy over another woman.  Questions were asked about healing and I told them also that we cast out demons.  Several of them were muslims and they had many questions.  One of the muslim women I prayed for told my friend after we left that "he is a really good man".  I'm just glad she got to experience that God is good - not something muslims often experience.

at another place, I began to ask some the people there if they had certain conditions.  I thought I was getting words of knowledge, but none of them seemed accurate.  It's important that I say this because at the hospital they all seemed to be right on, but in the second place they all seemed to be wrong.  This is often the way it works!  Anyway, one woman did have an elbow problem and I had her put her hand on it and we prayed.  She was healed.  Another woman let me pray for her some dizziness she was experiencing.  She testified that she felt better.  Her son had a knee problem so I also prayed that God would impart a gift of healing to her to take to him at their home.

after all of this I was able to go and meet personally one of the most significant Christian leaders in the entire Middle East.  we talked about miracles of healing and also the casting out of demons. 

the day isn't even over yet.

Gulf Arab muslim man touched by the Lord

while in an industrial area today, Isaac of Ninevah and myself both got the same word of knowledge (neck problem on the left side) for a Gulf Arab muslim man.  He let me pray for him and some of the pain left.  He wanted to know "how" we knew he had the problem.  I explained that God had revealed it to us and that as Christians we are commanded to "heal the sick".  It was getting better as our time went on.  Later another muslim friend showed up and he recounted what happened and explained that "God spoke to them about my neck problem and they prayed for me".  He used a very strong word - God "spoke" which is not something you will normally hear a muslim say.  I used a softer word when I explained it, "revealed", but he turns around and drops the strongest possible description!  Remember muslims believe that God stopped speaking!

it turns out that he has a grandson who is 4 years old and has never walked.  we are arranging a time to go and pray for his miracle.  I shared a testimony out of a trip we took to Yemen when a young muslim boy was healed who had never walked but got up and walked after prayer.

another muslim man from Iran also asked us to pray for his condition.  we are arranging a time to go and pray (I will bring a former Iranian muslim with me for that visit).
