PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord God, I pray that I will learn from my daily readings. The child in today’s reading opened his eyes as another sign of life. Please open the eyes of my understanding so that I may see with insight all that You would reveal to me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
I’ve seen too many miracles in my life to be an unbeliever. I’m believing God for a miracle now with my diagnosis of leukemia. I keep thinking back to a time when I was Pastor of Bethel Church in Hamilton, Ontario. One of our men was diagnosed with leukemia. I called him forward one Sunday morning. We gathered around him, identified with him by laying our hands on him, as the Scriptures tell us to do, and prayed. One week later he returned with a new diagnosis…no more leukemia! I don’t understand how that happened. Some would say that he had been misdiagnosed in the first place. That’s possible. But I do know that God can and does do the humanly impossible.
In the Fall of 1955, Doctors Gamble and Flak of Peterborough, Ontario told the President and Dean of the Bible College where I was in residence that they did not expect me to survive. The students identified with me in fasting and prayer. In my perception it seemed that the school officials were swimming into my dorm room. My fever was 105 degrees. They identified with me in the laying on of hands. I felt immediately like I was under a cooling shower. The fever departed and I got up and dressed, got into my 1947 Plymouth car, drove to the hospital, and asked Emergency to call the doctor. I experienced a miracle! God had one or two things for me to do down here on earth. He may have something for me to do here yet. The Apostle Paul longed to depart, but he said he was needed down here (Philippians 1:21-26). I pray every morning for healing…and thank you to all who pray for me.
Yours for God’s miracles,
