SVHR OPEN HOURS are May 5 from 11am – 1pm and 7pm – 9pm
SPRING TRAINING ROCKED
The graduates of the Spring Training came ready to learn and engage with what they were learning. Students exceled in the Practice Sessions blessing one another with their words and walking away more confident in their ability to hear from God.
The last night of training gave class members and facilitators a chance to conduct a “real” Healing Room appointment start to finish. People were healed. Students expressed words of knowledge and words of prophecy. Prayers were prayed and people “felt” the Holy Spirit work in their bodies. Faith boosted mightily throughout the class.
Praise God. He geTs the glory! Prayers are continuing to be answered.
GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS
Last Open Hours brought several people discouraged, depressed, and even suicidal. Each one received loving care and prayer. Most reported that they felt “better” immediately. God reminded the prayer teams to pray for God’s purpose in their lives to unfold. A common prescription was to give people “Swatting the Fly of Depression” and “Swatting the Fly of Fear.” Each of these handouts contain 40 verses of encouraging words designed to counteract the battle of discouragement and depression. Without realizing it, people can pick up a little thought from a diagnosis, or from childhood that hangs over them like “What if I don’t get better?” or “What if I’m going to be just like my parent?’ If we hear this or learn of this, we “break” these fears in prayer and offer specific truths in scripture for them to put their trust in.
We had 9 “appointments” at the end of our Training class last week.
One student participating as a Prayer Team member felt headaches and got tingling in his hands. He didn’t know what it meant. They later learned that the woman they were praying for has hypoglycemia which comes with shakiness and headaches from low blood sugar. This Word of Knowledge confirmation boosted everyone’s faith for the “hearing from God” step in the Healing Room appointment. After the appointment was supposedly over, the woman came back into the room to report that she was feeling tremendous heat through her body. She could feel the healing touch of God.
Another team prayed for a woman whose native language was Chinese. One of the prayer team members also spoke Mandarin and shared a word she received from God in Mandarin for this lady. She was deeply touched and blessed by this word coming in her native tongue, and felt much better physically as she received God’s personalized word for her.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” Matthew 5:7
Mercy is a spiritual condition. We gain mercy by being filled with more of Jesus and His mercy on the inside of us.
Smith Wigglesworth writes, “You cannot have the baptism with power without this supernatural mercy, this divine touch of heaven that stops satanic forces, frees the oppressed, and strengthens the helpless. This is the spirit that God wants to give us.”
As is the pattern of spiritual life, we first get full, then pressed down, then shaken together, and then running over. (Luke 6:38) May Jesus’ mercy fill you, get compacted, shaken up with everything else inside you, and then spill out to others around you.
I (Stephanie) had the privilege of meeting one of our intercessors for the first time this past weekend. I knew the Silicon Valley Healing Rooms got prayed for on Fridays from this committed team of people. I had the privilege of meeting the team, and being blessed by their 2.5 hours of freeform worship. It was a joy to join in with the prayers of the saints for our team and the other groups they pray for around the world. We lingered on praying for a team traveling in Syria. We knew they were praying for people, including healing prayers, ministering to people with desperate and dire conditions in that war torn country. We prayed for their safety and for influence with authorities as they took the good news of a healing Jesus with them in peace.
