MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
Rev. Robert L. Wise, PhD explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.
Last week I shared Judith MacNutt’s first experience of a miracle. Her story appeared in the Christian Healing Ministry’s Healingline newsletter. I had known Judith and Francis MacNutt for years as well as being involved in healing conferences with Francis who had a remarkable healing gift as well as exceptional perception.
The MacNutt’s ministry reminds us of several things. Some people have a special gift of praying for people and bringing healing results just as others have a natural ability to compose a song or write a book. On the other hand, anyone can work at getting better at expressing themselves as well as praying for others. It’s a matter of practice and persistence.
Here’s how this perspective was expressed in Judith’s life.
Some years before they were married, Judith came to a friend’s house because Francis was there praying for people’s need. Judith had just learned that her gynecologist diagnosed a cervical cancer or a pre-cancer and was recommending a hysterectomy. Judith came for prayer, hoping Francis’ healing gift might change her condition. She sat quietly in a chair with her eyes closed when he placed his hands on her head.
She remembers, “I felt the power of God go powerfully through me. He had his hand resting on my forehead and I felt him pressing down firmly, so much so I was trying to lean forward to counteract it.” Judith remembers thinking “You’re pressing down too hard and this is really uncomfortable.”
But when she opened her eyes, Francis wasn’t even standing there. He had moved on across the room. The pressure that Judith felt was the Holy Spirit. The power of God was so strong that she felt frozen in the chair.
The next day, Judith returned to Dr. William Reed for a second opinion on her pending operation. More tests were run to make sure of the what the surgery would accomplish. Dr. Reed returned with the final results.
His response was straight forward. “Go home. God has healed you. All the tissue is pink like a tiny baby. You don’t have cancer anymore.”
The MacNutt’s spent a lifetime learning and practicing healing prayer. You can do the same. Don’t gauge your ability by what someone else does. Don’t be afraid to begin praying for people when the need appears. Step out in faith and your heavenly Father will lead you the rest of the way. Your most exciting days will be ahead.
Oh yes …remember miracles never cease!
