While we were there, Ravi’s mother came. We found out that she had just been to the doctor. She was in excruciating pain. For some unknown reason, just a couple of months earlier she had developed pain throughout her body, especially in her back and legs. As she sat there in pain, she was on the verge of tears. We offered to pray for her. As we prayed, the pain alleviated to some degree. She felt a release. But, we weren’t able to stay and finish praying for her because we needed to get to another part of Delhi to pray for someone else.
My nephew had called me the day before and told me that his colleague, Charu’s, father had a debilitating ailment and needed prayer. Our primary purpose in coming to Delhi on Wednesday was to pray for Charu’s father. Charu’s father has something called multiple dystrophy. He developed it approximately 10 years back. It slowly causes the muscles of his body to stop functioning. They said it was because some nerve in his back had died. Earlier Charu’s father had been Vice President of a reputed car company, spoke five languages (Hindi, English, French, Italian and German), and had been wealthy. Now, he is confined to a wheelchair and has slurred speech, making it difficult to understand him.
As we began to share our testimony with Charu’s father, he said he felt a “humming” in his body. Something was happening. We said a few short prayers with him, but then had to leave to get back to Faridabad for a dinner appointment. As we were leaving, we went from the living room to the lobby. There, we met a little boy who had muscular dystrophy, who was at the home for tutoring. We prayed with him.
As we were getting ready to leave, Charu’s father wheeled himself into the lobby. He said, “Sungeeta, I have to tell you something. I have not been able to wheel myself like this before.” Praise God! He obviously has begun His miracle. We will try to go back and pray with Uncle again after Christmas.
Scripture for the Day:
God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken and will He not make it good. Numbers 23:19.
