We had a great testimony service this morning (May 24, 2015). During that service, Mark asked if he could pray for me after service as God had put me on his heart. He asked if I had back pain and I acknowledged I had for some time. Well, I never turn down prayer. So I got with Mark at the back of the sanctuary and put my hand where the pea-sized bump was lodged at the top of my left hip. He put his hand over mine and we began to pray. We had prayed and stopped three times and each time the bump had gotten smaller. Lesa joined us and I began to feel intense heat all over. The root of the bump did not want to let go but as we persisted it finally dissolved. All of this in about ten minutes. I remember thinking to “not give up.” Keep going til it’s done. Push through.
I know God heals as He has healed me before. I’ll share those another time. But this pain was with me throughout the day, especially as I am seated for my job much of the time. Stretching helped but didn’t alleviate it. God doesn’t want us in pain in any way – physically, emotionally or spiritually. This healing will allow me to share what God can and will do if we ask, but it also strengthens the relationship with Him and that’s all He really wants anyway.
Wrapped in His love, Marlene Sutton
