During our mission trip to Quito, Ecuador, we hosted a “prophetic and healing night” for members of various churches. Team members taught about the goodness of God and how He communicates through prophecy, giving specific messages of encouragement about the future. He speaks to us about others in order to encourage and build people up and reveal His love in a personal way. Our team asked God for prophetic words for people in the meeting and He spoke very clearly to us. One by one, men and women were hearing God’s call on their lives.
We then began to focus on healing and asked God for specific information about where people needed healing in their bodies. We shared nearly thirty insights from Holy Spirit about the kinds of healing people needed, and some people were completely healed before we even began to pray. Arms were waving and tears were streaming as people all over the room experienced healing in the presence of God. He was so faithful to touch and encounter His children.
I prayed for a woman who had pain in her ovaries. Earlier that day, I had pain in my ovaries, which is not common for me. I thought I was just experiencing personal pain until I heard the woman tell me her need. Right then, God showed me why I’d been having pain in my ovaries: He was giving me an insight from Holy Spirit that He wanted to heal this woman.
I asked her to place her hand on the area with pain and I prayed a simple prayer. It didn’t take long to see she was being physically touched. Tears ran down her face as she held her stomach and told me over and over again she could feel heat in her abdomen and the pain was decreasing! A few moments later, she said she no longer had any pain and knew God had healed her. With sheer astonishment, we both gave glory to God.
This was a pivotal moment in my journey with the Lord. At night, He taught me He can speak to me through physically letting me feel someone else’s pain and showed me I can be a conduit for His healing. I had prayed for healing for people before in groups, but this was the first time I prayed for healing for someone by myself and saw the power of God heal the person in front of my eyes!
