April 2019

On April 6th I attended the Prayer Ministry Workshop with Catholic Renewal Services. We learned about praying for others and watched some training videos by Randy Clark.

For the past year my wife Carla has had a problem with her left arm and shoulder. She had restricted mobility, and was experiencing a lot of pain. She had gone to the chiropractor and recently her doctor referred her to a physiotherapist. She was doing the physio exercises but getting no results. On April 13, 2019 she asked me to massage her shoulder and arm because it was hurting so much. I massaged her for awhile which felt good to her but the mobility in her arm did not improve. I asked if I could pray for her and she said yes, that she believed in the healing power of God. I prayed for about 5 or 6 minutes. She said she didn't feel anything. I told her Randy said 50% of the people who are healed don't feel anything. I asked her to move her arm and there was no change. I prayed some more with my hand over the spot she said hurt the most. I commanded the sinews and muscles to release in the name of Jesus. And I felt them release! I asked her to move her arm again and she had full range of motion! We were so excited! She said she still had some pain but could move her arm.  

I prayed a third time but no further change. It was about 80% healed because there was still some pain left. I told her that Randy taught us that people sometimes deny a healing because it is not 100% healed.

She has continued with full range of motion and some pain. We praised God and thanked the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I was so excited that I had trouble sleeping that night. My faith increased and I felt an in-breaking of the Kingdom of Heaven into our lives had begun. I pray for more - more power and signs and wonders for the glory of Jesus name.

On April 22 I prayed again for the pain to go away. The pain level went down by another 50% but more significantly she experienced a kind of inner release. She felt that the tension in her shoulder and arm had to do with holding on and trying to control things. She felt that she could let go and trust in God more.
