During a service I was leading in Davao City, with about 150 people in attendance, I felt that God wanted to heal through the act of laughter and expressions of joy. I told everyone, “On the count of three, let’s laugh for one minute, and God will release healing.”
We began to laugh, and people began to get free! After a few minutes, everyone quieted down. I asked for people to raise their hands if they were 50 percent, 80 percent, or 100 percent healed. Between 50 and 60 people responded to the 50 percent, and about 25 were in the 100 percent healed category. I asked those who were fully healed to come to the front and give their testimony. Some people were healed of sickness, and neck and back problems were restored with full mobility.
I then instructed those who needed healing in the same areas to come forward for prayer and told the newly healed to release healing over the sick. Many had never prayed for others before, but they did as instructed, and many more received healing and testified to even more healings. Joy and amazement filled the entire group.
I’m always looking to take the next faith step. Watching God heal through corporate laughter strengthened my faith and showed the creativity and goodness of God’s love.
