HOW’S YOUR PAIN?

A PIONEER IN EASTERN EUROPE May 12, 2015

I entered Edit’s house, passing by a small room where two men were watching television. I followed her to the kitchen, and we sat down. I asked her if there was someone in the house who needed prayer for healing. She nodded and pointed her chin at the room we had passed.

In an effort to clarify, I asked, “Someone in that room? Who?”

“My husband,” she said. “He has a problem with his back.”

I turned the corner and saw her husband Andras.  I introduced myself, interrupting his TV show.

“I heard you have back pain,” I commented. “Can I pray for you to be healed right now?” He looked a bit surprised, but agreed. A previous back surgery allowed him to stand, though he was still in constant pain. I asked him, “On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the worst, how would you rate your pain right now?”

“It’s a 7,” he answered. “Yes, right now it’s a 7.”

I laid my hand on his lower back and began to pray, thanking our Father for His grace and the finished work of Jesus Christ. I only prayed for about a minute. I removed my hand and said, “Ok, try it out. Does it still hurt?”

He nodded his head. I think he just expected it to hurt. But as he moved, his face became more and more surprised.

“Does it still hurt?” I asked. “Where is the pain?

He began to smile, moving more and more. “It’s gone,” he said. I don’t have any pain.” Then he touched his toes.

He grabbed my hand and said, “What do you have in there?”

I laughed and told him that I was a believer in Jesus Christ and that it was not me who healed him but Jesus. And he continued to move, lifting his right leg and saying, “My leg doesn’t hurt anymore either!”

I told Andras that I would be meeting with his wife to study more about Jesus who healed him. I left him in the TV room and went back to the kitchen to answer some of her questions. A few minutes later I noticed that her son and husband had turned off the TV and stood listening in the doorway. Though it was already late and we had to leave soon after that, we will be visiting again next week.

Praise God with us! He is pouring out His love! We’ve spent many hours and nights that seemed uneventful, but we are grateful for this breakthrough. Please pray for us to have wisdom to continue ministering to them.
