You Never Know What Will Happen When You Pray!

You know how sometimes you pray and you don’t really expect anything to happen?  I’ve been there more times than I would like to admit.  God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow though.

I was recently at a meeting of our Southwest Regional Leadership team and after a prayer time I looked down at what used to be a huge ganglion cyst on my wrist and it was tiny! (almost gone)  Now I had prayer, but not specifically for my wrist.  We had great times of worship and waiting on God and praying for each other.

I keep looking at my wrist.  I am amazed.  It is not like I should be surprised to see God move, but it is just amazing.  I’m not really sure why God chose to do this.  I have been to see a hand surgeon twice, so this was a cyst of some size.  The power of God was present to heal….to heal me.

Now, would I have rather had God heal me so I didn’t have to have a hysterectomy this year?  Sure.  But God chose to heal this.  He can do whatever He wants—whenever He wants .  I am just so glad His Kingdom broke in and I got to see it.

Don’t stop praying.  God may do something amazing and surprising!  It may even be something different than what you were expecting!  I think God must like to surprise us.

Ask me to see my wrist the next time you see me.  It is amazing.

  1. That’s great! I like surprises (well, the good ones that is.) It’s encouraging to hear about physical healings because I’ve been praying for healing for a looooong time. Thanks for sharing!
