Welcome to a collection of stories of our walk of faith in India.
|One night in the Tenali region of villages as hundreds were before me asking for prayers, an elderly woman stepped up for prayer. As I began to pray for her with my hands on her head, she reached up and grabbed my hand and began screaming. It might be that she is in this picture which was taken just before the event. Her eyes rolled back and ugly sounds came from her. As she jerked me it felt like I was going to go head first into the audience in front of me. I called quickly to Barbara who was packing up the sanctuary. I asked her to hold onto me so I did not get jerked forward. Barbara was quiet and shy and did not feel she was qualified to pray for people but was happy to help in any way I asked. She held tightly to stabilize me as I prayed.|
|Instantly as I saw the older woman's eyes and heard her
utterances I knew I was battling Satan. I cried out to God in heaven to do
battle with His adversary. I kept praying. My eyes were closed till she
was jerking so violently on me. Then I saw the ever watchful pastor and
all his helpers rally about me. They were all praying out loud. They all
recognized the battle and came to help pray. I continued praying out loud
in the name of Jesus asking Him to cast out the demons. Finally after
several minutes she sank quietly and peacefully into a chair brought for
her. She a peaceful joy on her face and when I saw her again in clinic she
had the same look of peace.
I love these Indian people. They are really precious. Whenever there was danger to me, they all worked to protect me. I was encouraged to see them unite their prayers with mine for the casting out of these demons.
Jesus says that where two or three are gathered together in His name He is in their midst.
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; ...
It is not my power or might but the power of our amazing God who has done these things.
Mathew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
