This guy was walking with a stick until Paul Bennison prayed for him.
From Paul: there’s an even lovelier story behind this photo than just the healing… I’m really sorry I can never remember this lovely brother’s name (Simon I CAN remember!!), but 3 years ago, he came for prayer, two sticks, walking in evident pain, and with a very croaky voice. I asked him his name, and ‘did he mind if I asked how old he is?’. 82. What I can I pray for…?
He had terrible problems with walking, all forms of major motor function, in fact: his response blew me away. ‘I want God to heal my legs and my voice, so that I can begin the new ministry that he’s called me to do’. 82 years old. Needless to say, God healed him….
Inspirational, a lover of Jesus, a true disciple of God, and an absolutely beautiful man.
5 weeks today, theoretically, I can retire.I could never in a million years survive on the pension coming to me (9-10 years in a bank in the ’70’s doesn’t amount to a pot of gold!) – more like a crock of ..er…hummus!! But WHY? Why retire? Yes, sure, I have motor function issues until God heals these (currently) wrecked knees, but they’re renewable supernaturally, and I do know that God WILL renew them…and when you garner stories like this, and others on Facebook and in the blog, WHY would you retire? Moses made it to 120, sight undimmed (suggesting the rest of him was pretty healthy, I think: Abraham ‘kicked off’ his life’s mission at 80, right? Paul probably wasn’t a spring chicken when he got going….I want to do this until I drop, God willing, finances permitting (but God owns them, even if we think we own our finances!)…..
