Thomas’ Transformation

This witness comes from the 2020 Conference. Most of you know it well. A young man, Thomas, came to our prayer team (Lori, Bonnie, & Vern). When we asked what he wanted prayers for he had nothing to note. Lori receives from the Holy Spirit to go to his feet and bless them, which she did. When he returned to his seat the Holy Spirit started to manifest on him. Heat and shaking in his legs. He soon discovered that he could not move his feet. We tried to renounce a afflicting spirit but that did not help. Lori prayed more over his feet. Nothing worked. I saw Fr. Mathias not too far away and went to solicit help. He simply laughed at us and said, “Oh you 1st year students, you get to learn.” Nice Father but not exactly the help I thought he would provide. So we went back to Thomas to continue prayer. Nothing seemed to work until Thomas admitted that he had gone up for prayer just to prove that the Holy Spirit was not really responsible for what was happening. He was in defiance. His admission must have been what the Holy Spirit was looking for. Lori immediately saw angel wings on both sides of his shoes, and his feet came loose. Do we ever start thinking these occasions, when God breaks forth into our world, are ho hum? Not in my world. Wow. It moved me as much as Thomas.
