Then we went to the marketplace. As we got to the place we generally stand, people began coming for prayer. Some were old faces, but a majority were new faces. There was a young girl who had been suffering from back pain and spondylitis for over three years. She was amazed as the pain completely left as we prayed for her. One security guard who has been coming regularly for prayer for the past 3 weeks came and testified that the Lord has been answering her prayers. She got additional prayer and asked for a copy of Jyoti, a book we distribute to those who ask that has a summary of the Bible and basic Christian belief. A young man said that he had heard many testimonies from his friends of answered prayers over the past few weeks, so when he saw us, he decided to try it for himself. As we prayed for him, he felt his head lighten. A little boy, Saddam, came for prayer after another boy hurt his stomach. He was in extreme pain, but as we prayed, the pain left. He left with a smile on his face. One old lady with arthritis came for prayer and felt the Lord healing her knees. I can’t list all of the miracles, or even recall them. For over two straight hours, we were praying continuously. Finally we stopped because Mom had to go pray with the family that comes on Sundays and I had to start the youth meeting. One sikh man stopped and listened and watched us pray because as he walked by, he thought he heard Joyce Meyers speaking. Joyce Meyers is a favorite here in India of Christians and non-Christians alike.
The youth group was really good. More people attended than expected. Those who attended were: Suvneet, Arpit, Arpit’s roommate’s brother, Om Prakash, Jitendra, Deep, Manoj, Judes and two other men whose names I do not know. I did a teaching on the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Then we prayed and the guys received.
On our way home, I received two phone calls from people we had met at Priya. They wanted to get additional prayers.
Scripture for the Day:
“But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Matthew 9:13.
