It was nicely dry this week as we went out to pray for our community. Here are some stories:
We headed to the park and had some really good encounters. After praying for a lady we spoke to a man we knew who shared lots of sad stories and challenges he faced and he really appreciated prayer. We managed to encourage a lady who'd been off alcohol for a long time and she was seeking to quit smoking, so we prayed for that. After praying she said "I can feel it, I can feel it in my heart." So she was really impacted.
We met a lady who asked us to pray for her getting a new job, and then met a local man who had some very challenging family situations. He was really encouraged and touched by the prayer. We spoke to a man who asked us to pray following a recent bereavement and also he also had arthritis in his left knee. After praying we asked him to test it by walking a little and he said it felt a bit better and so we prayed again and he said it had improved! We reminded him it was not us but Jesus who heals and that the doctors saying it will never get better doesn't have to be the final word on it.
