Renewed!

Attending classes at the Encounter School of Ministry has rekindled Holy Spirit boldness in my heart that had waned over the past few years. I had lost my zeal and confidence to ask those who God placed in my path who were sick, depressed, lost, or whatever, if I could pray with them. As I arrived the first night for class and heard the praise & worship music before I entered the building, the Holy Spirit began stirring my faith. I was inspired further to step outside of myself and pray with others again while reading “The Spiritual Gifts Handbook”, and being inspired by our campus leaders, Ben & Chantelle Hudachek. They would share their testimonies of how the Holy Spirit was moving in their lives using them to pray for their own family and those God placed in the path or directed them to.

God gave me the perfect opportunity when my 17 years old nephew was diagnosed with the flu. He has a rare genetic disorder, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, CAH and his body does not produce cortisol which can be fatal with trauma, fever, or vomiting. Any of those symptoms mean a trip to the emergency room and high doses of cortisone. Andy started with a fever that quickly spiked and was taken to the hospital late one night. His mom texted me the next morning and told me that everything was under control at that point and that he was being released.

The following day, his fever returned. I asked his Mom if I could come to their home to pray with him, but she assured me that she had already done so and it wasn’t necessary for me to come. The Holy Spirit prompted me through one of the Encounter students whom had been praying with me for Andy to go and pray with him. Not knowing if my sister-in-law would let me in, I showed up at their door without calling before. She immediately had me come in to pray with him. After calling on the Holy Spirit, I commanded the fever and for all flu symptoms to leave his body , in the Name of Jesus! Pleaded the Precious Blood of Jesus over him and thanked the Lord for healing him while waiting for his body to respond. I continued to pray in the Spirit. Within an hour his fever broke and did not return! Without the renewal of my mind and a rekindling of the fire of the Holy Spirit, I would not have gone to their home to pray with Andy. God is so good!
