Ken, daughter Susan, Tim & Brenda
On our 25th wedding anniversary we were privileged to dine with Ken and Susan; a father and his daughter. As we prepared to eat dinner we shared that we prayed to the Lord and asked if there was anything we could pray for them. We found out that Ken had recently broken some ribs and was in great pain and also required a cane.
We prayed and God healed. Ken's health improved quickly and through the course of our time we had the opportunity to share about many things. Long story short, Ken's relationship with the Lord has been restored, the chiropractor testified how remarkable and quick his healing was and Ken is just on fire with the love of Christ.
He's been sharing Christ's love with many at work and beyond. A couple of days ago Ken sent me an email asking for prayer for a friend. I asked his permission to share with you my reply as I think it applies to everyone because Jesus sent us all to minister. Here it is;

The one lady Mavoureen Varga, is suffering with pain all day in her stomach, please pray for her.
Take care love to Brenda and you, Regards,
We can pray "with you.".
Mark 16:16-19 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
The scripture says "those that believe shall....... Lay hands upon the sick and they shall recover.". When we took hold of your hand over dinner on the cruise, we land hands on you, and with your permission and request we prayed.
You know what the Lord did for you and your ribs, I know you believe so you pray with her and we will agree with you that In Jesus name Lady Varga will be healed as well.
Here are some scriptures to meditate upon:
Jesus gave authority to heal and commanded us to go just like He did the 12 apostles:
Luke 9:1 -Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. 2 He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
Christ is no respecter of persons: Galatians 3:28-29 - There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Only believe - trust Him - our job is to provide a voice for His words and allow Him to use our hands to minister to others.
In Matthew 8 there was a centurion whose servant was sick and when asked Jesus responded 7 And Jesus said to him , “ I will come and heal him. Jesus "wills" to heal. Healing is His will!
But He has restricted Himself by choosing to work through people. That is why He gave us the charge in Mark 16:15-19 that I shared a portion of above.
So pray for Lady Varga, simply, be healed in Jesus name. We will agree with you for her healing.
Matthew 18:19 – “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
The qualifier is this, those that believe.... shall..... act. God is no respecter of persons. Share your testimony as it is powerful. Step out in faith, do what the bible says and see Christ work through you.
Be blessed in Jesus name,
