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!!
