SILICON VALLEY HEALING ROOMS NEWSLETTER
Christmas is almost here! You are on God’s Christmas List. The list is not based on being good or bad; it’s based on relationship with Jesus. God gives what we can’t find in a store or order online: His Presence. God sent us Jesus. And He offers us the Holy Spirit to come and abide in us. The Holy Spirit gives Godly love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. What do you want God to give you this Christmas?
GOD ANSWERS PRAYER
Feedback from last Open Hours…
Q: How was your experience today?
“Really, really good time of sensing God’s word for my situation. Encouraging. I feel really blessed by the time with the prayer team members.”
“Amazing. My pain went from an 8 to a 4. It felt like I heard what I needed.”
“It was a wonderful experience and I feel that I’m going to be in a different direction moving forward.”
Q: What did God do for you during your time at the Healing Rooms?”
“He gave me very specific words for my health issues.”
“God showed me and verified I have been on a good path.”
“He let me see he is still loving me—and that I must believe in him after I have been lost.”
“Behold, I will again do a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder (Isaiah 29:14, NKJV).”
What a great Sneak Preview for 2018: marvelous works and wonders!
Meanwhile, let us hold this truth that God is at work among us.
For those who face Christmas visits with family who seem to never change despite years of prayer…
For those who accept the pain with the conclusion that nothing will change…
For those who have dreams, and haven’t seen them fulfilled yet…
For those who took a direct hit of circumstances from the enemy in 2017…
For those who experienced unexpected loss….
For those who can’t feel God’s living touch this Christmas and feel alone…
Listen to the voice of God:
“I’m going to step in and shock them awake, astonish them, stand them on their ears. The wise ones who had it all figured out will be exposed as fools. The smart people who thought they knew everything will turn out to know nothing (Isaiah 29:14, MSG).”
This year He gives us the gift of His Hope, His comfort, His Presence, His breath of life, a renewed offer of salvation, and His healing power.
Thank you for praying all year. Our Christmas cards to you are filled with thankfulness for your prayers, and rejoicing to pause and reflect on all God has done this year. There are answers to prayers still trickling in. He’s continuing to answer your faith filled prayers.
TO THE TEAM
Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. Come and show Jesus your joy by giving to others the gifts He has developed in you. May you be filled and overflowing with all you are doing with your time to serve and give. Truly, it’s a season of watching God answer prayer requests. This season has been one of full circle. As you have received, you now give. As you have given, you now receive.
Let heaven come down,
