-Man with Terminal Cancer Healed

Here’s the account of a man diagnosed with terminal cancer that did not give up but he and his wife kept on praying for a miracle and finally received a documented healing. From the Blaze:

“Even though I know my Lord so intimately and have a deep relationship with him, I really shook in my boots,” Rosey Brausen said, explaining how difficult it was to continue praying when doctors were asking how her husband was going to spend his last days.

She said that God warned the couple that they were “in for a battle,” and so they hunkered down, refusing to give up hope that healing could be a possibility; rather than give up, they began taking a number of steps in an effort to steadfastly hope — and pray — for the best.

“Getting a prayer team around us, saying scripture out loud over us … and then keeping my eyes focused on [God],” Rosey said of their actions, which also included treatments and the removal of a lung.

Many times, she said that Christians treat God like a Santa Claus of sorts, imploring him to “give us what we’re praying for,” but not realizing that it can sometimes be a long battle — and that he won’t always answer every prayer.

In the end, Rosey said that she had to learn true and profound trust in the Almighty as she journeyed through her husband’s illness.

Response: This account is important since the story has broken through and has been noticed in the regular American media. I have known a number of folks in the last few years who have gone through similar healings but usually the MSM ignores them even if there is documented evidence.

Healings and miracles seem to be on the increase among Christians in America. Finally the press is beginning to write about them (See the previous article about the Pope blessing a family).

We are hoping and praying for revival and a new spiritual awakening in this nation. Signs and wonders, miracles and healings always seem to have a part of any move of God. In the past, the American media has documented those revivals and awakenings. Even in the 50’s the LA Times publicized a new evangelist- Billy Graham and featured accounts of his meetings on their front page and played an invaluable part in his rise to fame. Today that more than likely would not happen. Up to this point the national media has been ignoring any evidence of supernatural healing among Christians. Keep on praying!              *Top

-A Triple Miracle?

A Papal miracle? Actually a triple miracle. A young couple who were told they could not have children had triplets following a blessing by Pope Francis last year. Here’s the story from The Blaze:

A married couple who were reportedly told that they only had a 1 or 2 percent chance of conceiving a baby believe that they experienced a miracle that defied “all medical odds” after receiving a blessing from Pope Francis in Rome last year.  …

“I just felt so full of joy when we were in his presence,” Liz Tremblay told the outlet.

But it wasn’t just a feel-good moment, as the couple claim that they subsequently found out that they were pregnant — and expecting triplets. They welcomed Andrew, Elliot and Nicholas into the world on August 20

Response: I believe that God can work miracles and healings through the prayers and blessings of any Christian including the Pope.  I have no doubts that God blessed this couple.

Lately, I have seen an increase in healings and miracles among Christians all around the world. We seem to lag behind the rest of the world in Western countries when it comes to miracles but I believe that will be changing soon. The fact that this one comes from a blessing from the Pope helps to publicize the reality of the supernatural in the increasingly secular Western culture.

I have personally experienced a number of miracles in my own life. The following is just One:

When I was 19 years old I severely damaged my knee playing a game of pickup football. The doctors said I would need a operation to correct the damage and would be on crutches for several months. It was the summer between my sophomore and junior year in college and I really needed to work to pay for my next year in school.

My knee was the size of a huge grapefruit and I could not walk and could hardly stand the pain when my dad called for the church elders to come and pray for me. The two elders who came had just attended a healing workshop taught by Kathryn Kuhlman.

After they prayed the swelling and pain was gone and I could walk with no problem. I went to work for nine hours on my feet and worked all Summer. Never did get an operation, praise God.

God still heals folks. This is one of the reasons that I assert that Christianity is the greatest scientific experiment of all time. Lives were changed for the better and miracles and healings happened when Jesus lived and ministered on the earth 2,000 years ago and this is still being duplicated today among his followers around the world.             *Top

-‘Answered Prayers’ on TV

God still answers prayers. To prove the point, Roman Downey is involved with hosting and producing a new TV series on TLC called ‘Answered Prayers.’ Here’s the story from the  Christian Post:

Roma Downey’s riveting new six-part series “Answered Prayers,” which features real-life stories of people in potentially life-threatening situations who experience divine intervention, says she’s “thankful” and “humbled” by fans’ support for the show.

“We are humbled by the support of so many national prayer leaders, and thankful for how this show is inspiring so many to pray again,” said Downey about the series which has now moved to primetime at 8 p.m. ET Sundays on the TLC network.

As one of the show’s executive producers, Downey hosts each one-hour episode that incorporates actual footage and interviews paired with powerful reenactments.

Response: A few years ago, Roma and her husband were able to convince TV executives to air their Bible series and that was a real demonstration of answered prayer. The success of that series has now led to this new one on TLC that shows God still working miracles and saving people today. A great uplifting series for family viewing. 

This is also a message that our secular culture really needs to hear and be exposed to. I am hoping that the series will pave the way for us to share our own answered prayers and miracles with our friends, neighbors, and family.               *Top

-Lou Engle: A Vision for ‘Stadium Christianity’ and a New Awakening


Lou Engle of ‘The Call,’ a prayer movement that has gathered hundreds of thousands together all over America for conferences featuring prayer, fasting, repentance, and worship, has a new vision for revival in what he is calling ‘stadium Christianity.’ From Charisma News:

Engle is believing for what he calls “stadium Christianity,” an outbreak of revival that will bring believers to stadiums across the country to worship and experience a new power in the Holy Spirit.

His dream is to hold “The Call” in Los Angeles Memorial Stadium on April 9, 2016, on the 110th anniversary of the Azusa Street Outpouring, which kicked off the Pentecostal/Charismatic renewal in the United States.

“Can you believe with us that denominations will unite, that the races could come together, that God could make us one, as the antidote to the terrific division in our day?” Lou asks.

“Could you believe with us for ‘stadium Christianity’ where signs and wonders are breaking out and mass evangelism explodes across our country?” he continued.

Response: The enemy is sowing racial discord and violence in the major cities all across America. The newscasters and press are exacerbating the problem by giving equal time and credence to every voice and picture of discontent.

The American church holds the real answer to this mess. What if  black and white and Latino Christians all got together in unity all across America in stadiums starting with LA.?  Remember, Azusa Street was an interracial revival and provided the foundation for the Pentecostal movement which includes some of the largest black denominations and churches.

The picture of white and black Christians along with other races praying together for racial unity and revival on the 10 o’clock TV News along with signs and wonders, healings, and miracles could go along way towards healing American cities and bringing on a new awakening.               *Top

-Renewal Among the Methodists


Here’s a report of a renewal going on right now in the United Methodist Church through Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. The report comes from David F. Watson:

I know many people who are praying for renewal in the UMC and beyond, and we should continue to do this. But what we need also to understand is that renewal is happening now. You just have to know where to look for it. And in the UMC it’s happening through Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. Thanks be to God.

<Read the whole article>

Response: Read David’s entire report of a recent conference sponsored by Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. It is really encouraging. We really do need to pray for a continuing renewal in the UMC. Wouldn’t it be great to see these mainliners on fire again and add spiritual gifting and power to churches all across the heartland that have been declining for years.

These folks already know how to reach out with social programs. Can you imagine what would happen if life changing healing and miracles were added on to what they are doing now? This is what our cities need in America- to be on fire with the Holy Spirit instead of racial strife. Praise God and bring on the renewal! Time for you intercessors to get busy.               *Top
