Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Once at youth club (IMPACT!).....we were praying and the holy spirit revealed to Matt that I woud bring powerful words to papier and I could't believe. So on Frieday we were at media markt and " bam " I got these words in my head and it was like "lets go home I most do something very important." So I went on the lap top and just wrote what the Holy Spirit gave me and I called my mum and she read it and said "I want to give it to pastor Richard." So I just want to thank God for giving me these words and I'm so happy that I met you guys (you ,Frances , Matt ........) because I bet if I didn't know you all I would still go through life knowing nothing. I mean it's so great everything is getting better and I see things in a different way and I thank you, Frances , Matt, KLF.....for showing me the right way to God. And last week in youth club you also told us to bless the people who accused you false because that's exactly the thing that happend to me at school and so I blessed and prayed for him and today he apologised himself - I mean that's great. Thank you so much. I bless all you guys and I can't wait to learn even more on Friday ..... Sabine (13)

Here's a poem Sabine wrote by the Holy Spirit:

If they’re willing to change,
Let your love be their energy
I have more than I need
When your love shines down
On me

Everything we’ve ever stolen
Has been
Or broken
Without you our life is darker
It’s only you we’re after
Jesus you are the way
You gave your life away

Jesus, for us you died
Jesus, for you we cried
You never lied
When you said you
Love us

You are the Saviour of the universe
You are so good there is nothing you don’t deserve
Up to our neck in darkness
Now thanking you for your kindness

This is my song
I sung before
And a song
I’ll sing

I mean every word
I mean every single
One of them
Oh Lord please make me pure
You are the best
I’m sure

We praise God for breathing new life into our people!

During the Bill Johnson conference in Speyer there was a call for people to pray with those around who had need of prayer. Bill J had suggested praying with someone new to you (new meat as he called it !) One lady some distance behind me really seemed to stand out. I had a strong impression the Lord wanted me to pray with her. I walked over and asked if I could pray with her. She agreed. When instructed to begin praying myself and a male friend of hers asked what she needed prayer for. She said she had itchy ears which were also painful and that she had a strong senses of pressure in her ears. First the man prayed for her with his hands cupped over her ears. Then I prayed with one hand over one ear. I spoke to the problem and took authority over it commanding it to leave in Jesus' name, speaking healing into these areas of conflict with God's intention for her.At this point all the itching and pain went from her left ear. So we prayed again in a similar manner for her healing. This time the second ear was healed of itching and pain.The pressure sensation was still there. (Later on in the meeting I recalled there had been a word of knowledge about someone having a problem with itchy ears.) Bill J asked if 10 or so people would come up and testify about healing they had received. The lady the man and I had prayed with was initially not keen to go up and testify. I really encouraged her to give praise to the Lord for what He had done! So she went up to the platform. By the time she came to give her testimony publicly she said the itching, the pain AND the pressure had all gone. At this time she also disclosed that she had had this condition for 7 years. I spoke to her later that evening and again the next day and she was still fully healed. Praise Him !!I believe she received this final part of the healing as she stepped up to give the Lord praise for what He HAD done ...rather than giving no public praise at all due to the fact that initially she had not experienced her full healing yet. I think this is a key to note. The Lord also brought back to mind to me the healing of external pain to the ear of a lady I had prayed for some weeks ago. Who was instantly healed. I think there might be a key here also to Him building on what we know and have experienced. I don't mean I will only see healing of ear pain...but I sense He is growing a confidence here in me. I remember before praying with the lady at the conference thinking. This is easy...a done deal if you like. I had experience of healing of ear problems and it was like a platform to build on...does that make sense ?

Later in another part of the conference a lady in a wheelchair came forward for prayer. She was severely disabled. Strapped into this chair to aid seating.Many people stepped forward to help pray. Gail and I went forward also. Gail and I seemed to get key words from the Lord for this ladies condition. I had the word 'breaking' and saw in my minds eye layers that seemed to be over her mind. I spoke to these layers to break off or away. Others were praying also in various ways but I was not clear on what they were praying. After a short while she began to say she was remembering things that she had forgotten...Her memory was being restored! Gail then began to get the word 'strengthen' and began to speak strengthening to her bones and muscles. Then she would start to move and wriggle where I understand it had not been easy to before. This improved more and more and the lady began to praise Jesus. She had real faith for healing. There was a lot of prayer...and a lot of mixed prayer but eventually she wanted to stand up and out of her wheelchair. With help she managed this to some small extent. Then after a few minutes she was tired and wanted to sit down again. So she was helped back into her wheelchair. At this point two ladies who had not been previously praying with the group came over and I sensed a wave lack of faith come in.Both Gail and I sensed it now best to step back.I do praise God for the progress that was made and I am confident He will continue with a healing work in this lady. I sensed the lady in the wheelchair had great faith and certainly knew Jesus!

Today just before the service started. Gabi said she had a very bad headache. I said I would pray for this and the Lord would heal her. Knowing He wanted to heal her I put my hand on her forehead and spoke to the pain to leave her. I also invited the Holy Spirit to minister to her with His peace. I had a sense of the Lord's hands gently passing over and down her head to ease the tension in the muscles. After a minute or two of the Holy Spirit ministering to her in this way she was completely free of pain and feeling very good and refreshed. Praise the Lord who is good all the time !!


Touching the lost!

This week, a number of us went to the Vineyard Church in Speyer to a conference called, „Tu’s Einfach” (“Just do it!”) where among other speakers, Bill Johnson was speaking about healing, signs and wonders and we were being encouraged to go into the streets and “just do it!” This of course, is totally in line with the way the Lord has been leading us in “Kingdom Life.” This was yet further confirmation for us and another demonstration of the unity in the Holy Spirit!

On Tuesday afternoon – October 2nd - (in between sessions), a few of us decided to spend some time in Speyer. I had spent a while trying to find a parking space and left the others on one open-air parking level near the cathedral, and then went up to another and found that there were spaces available there. When I was coming out to go back down to join them I noticed a beggar sitting on the ground by a building. I sensed a quickening in my spirit and knew that we should go and pray for him, so after finding the others we went back to him. We asked him about his situation. He was Hungarian and spoke very little German but we managed to find out that he had three children to support but had no job. He couldn’t work because he had hurt his leg 32 years ago! We looked at the leg and saw a huge gash across his shin. We also sensed that he had an alcohol addiction. We asked if we could pray for him and he said “yes”. That morning Bill Johnson had given a testimony about a healing involving the growing of muscle tissue near the shin so we prayed (in English), for the muscle to strengthen, for health, healing and wholeness and for strengthening of the bones. We also prayed that the Lord would intervene in his situation that He would break off the alcohol addiction and for provision for the man to find a job. Afterwards we asked if the man had noticed anything different in his leg. He said that he felt some relief in his knee. Although he did not dramatically get up and walk at that moment, it was clear from his expression that he had been touched by God and he was grateful that we had prayed for him. We gave him some money and went on our way.

We thank the Lord that He will continue the work that He has started in this man! Once more the Lord was testing obedience in us and giving us opportunity to “Risk-4-His-Glory!” Praise God & to Him be all the glory!!

Moving with God

We're struggling to keep up! Praise the Lord!

There are testimonies of small blessings and wonderful miracles weekly! Our people are prophecying over people and seeing lives change. Our people are boldly sharing the Gospel with family and friends and seeing people give their lives to Jesus. Our people are going out on the streets and offering to pray for people, rich and poor to receive healing and God's love.

We will attempt to get the testimonies posted as soon as possible but praise God - He is on the move and we're seeking to keep up with Him! Hallelujah!

Risking 4 His Glory!

Testimony – Wed. 27th June

On Wednesday afternoon I had arranged to take V. to Main Taunus Zentrum and she would meet up with O. & H. (a fellow leader) at 1345 at the fountain in the centre. O. said she would stay for 5 minutes and if we weren’t there she would move on.

When we arrived it was pouring with rain and a lot of rain was coming through the ceiling making the floor very slippery…

We were at the fountain at about 1340 and V. needed to find the toilet so I told her she could go into Karstadt and I would wait at the fountain.

While I was waiting I was looking around and observing people, and noticed a young lady sitting on the edge of the fountain looking rather upset – although at first I wasn’t sure if she just had something in her eye! When I sensed she really was upset about something I began to pray in tongues to see whether the Lord wanted me to go across to her and so that I would not be doing it in my own strength… I sensed He wanted me to go and speak to her so I went.

The conversation went something like this…

“Do you speak English?”
“Yes – I do”
“Are you ok? – you look a bit upset…”
“I fell down on this slippery floor and my back hurts… I am waiting for a friend to come”
“That’s awful – it really is very slippery here and very dangerous…I’m also waiting for a friend too…How is your English so good?”
“I learnt it in school – I am graduating from school tomorrow”
“Oh – you go to German school…Can I ask if you are a Christian?”
“No I’m not”
“Well I am, and I believe in the power of prayer – would you like me to pray for you – you look really shaken up – and for your back. ”
“No that’s alright – my friend will be coming soon”
“I know this looks a bit weird and wacky – some complete stranger coming up to you asking whether you want prayer here in the shopping centre!… but I belong to a church which believes that we can pray anywhere at anytime for people. I know that it’s not normal to do this kind of thing in Germany but it does happen in other places like England and US for example…”
“What sort of church to do you go to then?”
“It is a non-denominational church but we believe that we have the power of God inside of us so we can go out and pray for people and they can be healed etc… Have you read the bible – do you know the book of Acts?”
“No …”
“Well after Jesus died and was raised again he gave power to the disciples to go out and heal and do powerful things and the church that was formed then is really the kind of church that Jesus wants – he doesn’t want denominations.”
“So does your church accept the muslims and buddists too then?”
“No we’re not for every religion, we are Christian, so all can come like the Catholics, evangelisch etc…if they want to! It’s a new church that is based in Frankfurt – we use the premises of a German church so we meet on Sunday afternoons” (I got out one of the KLF cards and try to find a pen to write my name and phone number)
O., H. and also V. return…
“Oh… there are your friends!”
“Yes – Hi!… O., do you have a pen I could borrow?”
“Yes here it is” (I write down my name and phone number on the card)
O. says that she will go upstairs to Karstadt and I said I will see them up there…
“Here’s my name & number. If you want to ask me anything about the Christian faith you can always call me”

“I believe that this is a divine appointment – we haven’t met here by accident. I don’t want to force you, but tomorrow you might look back and say “I wish I had let that woman pray for me”… “I can pray if you want to…”
“I don’t think it will make any difference because I don’t believe.”
“That doesn’t matter – what is more important is the faith of the person praying – my faith. I can also pray that you will get more revelation about God if you want”
“OK then”
“I can put my hand on your shoulder as I pray, (which can be powerful) or I don’t have to – are you happy for me to put my hand here?”
“I don’t mind – you can if you want”
“What’s your name?”
So then I prayed for more revelation, that God’s love through Jesus would be made real to her – that he had known her since before she was born and loved her, peace, joy, other things I can’t remember, and also for her back.
During the prayer I noticed she had her eyes open so I told her it would be better for her to close her eyes against distraction. Afterwards, I asked her how she felt. She looked a bit glassy eyed.
“That’s the peace of God. He loves you, you know… How is your back”
“It still hurts”
I sensed that I couldn’t push it any more by offering to pray for her again, but I told her,
“It will get better – Sometimes these things happen immediately and sometimes it’s a process”
Then I said…(but I don’t know why I brought up this subject!)
“Have you ever heard of the Alpha Course?”
“No – what’s that?”
Then I told her a bit about it, how it is a non-threatening course for people to find out about Christianity … told her some of the subjects..”
“You mean, you can actually find out if some of this stuff is true or not?”
“Yes that’s right”
“I have a problem believing that God made the world and all this stuff”
“Well, you can find out about all that and other things”
Then her friend arrived – he looked older than her…I sensed he was closed to this so I just said “Hi, I just came to talk because she was very upset”
“Oh” (He said)
Then I ended by saying – “Feel free to call me anytime!”

This was the gist of what was said, but there might have been other things – I wasn’t really thinking too much about what I did say, but trying to rely on the Lord. The main thing was that at least her heart was opened up a bit to the Spirit. It would be great if she called me, but I pray that this is a seed planted in her heart and that someone else will water it – she may be going away to University perhaps, so let’s pray she will come into contact with Christians there. I hope this testimony brings encouragement!

Fast Food & Fast Healing - Fast Forward with Jesus!

Thursday 21st June 2007 @ McDonalds

Week with the children's visit from Chernobyl, Ukraine. This day had been planned for all to visit a theme park called Lochmuehle - cancelled due to wet weather. Group of us decided to do other things....For lunch took 11 kids to McDonalds with 4 adults - Myself, I.,N., and Val. Settled kids....

Through lunch I. repeatedly told of extreme sharp or stabbing pain on outside edge of her right ear. Kept touching it and was very irritated by it, clearly in some discomfort. She was asking me and others to look and see if something was piercing it a sting or if it looked as if it were infected. Was wondering if she could get a pain killer and said she would have to go to the doctor with such stabbing pain and lot of heat and swelling that I could see when compared with her left ear. She made repeated reference to a stabbing pain or nerve type pain which she said she had been suffering from earlier that morning. Her face was showing she was clearly in a lot of discomfort.

I said we should pray for that to be healed. I. agreed to be prayed for. I. put her head down and she placed her own hand cupped over her ear as I lay my hand on top of hers.I prayed for healing for the ear, the pain and heat to go in Jesus's name. My exact words I can not remember but it was brief and to the point. I took my hand away. For about 5 seconds she kept her head down and then lifted it smiling saying

"It's gone ...all the pain has gone...and the feels cold!"

She encouraged me to feel her cold ear. We all praised God !!! Except V. (support person from Ukraine) said nothing. We were all delighted and talking about it...I. rejoicing !!I said to I. to remember what God had just done and to use it as a prophetic testimony whenever she saw someone needing or asking for healing prayer....I encouraged her to retell what He had done for her prior to her praying for anyone raise faith for healing to follow. She was very excited at the possibilities !

After a few minutes. V. spoke up and pointed at me ..."I want you to pray for the 6 children left at the home back in Chernobyl" she said. (we had been discussing earlier 6 children who, due to lack of funds, could not get paper work to come on trip.) I told V. we could all pray right now for them...So we did ! We held hands around our red McDonalds table ...the 11 Ukraine kids at a long table next to us….and prayed out loud praise to God for His healing of I. and for His intervening and provision for the 6 remaining children in Chernobyl! Proclaiming His greatness in MacDonald' food and fast healing !!!!!!!! Fast forward with JESUS !!

I understand I. is indeed telling everyone about God 's healing !! She told me the day after her miraculous healing, Friday, she once or twice got a twinge in her ear...but she immediately said 'No ! I am trusting you Jesus !' and then it immediately stopped and as far as I know that is it ...healed in the name of Jesus !
