Class Interpretation

After praying alone for for many months in pastor’s office, pastor announced in church that I was praying in his office. During Sunday school, anyone who wanted to join me was welcome to do so. The next Sunday about four or five came in and I was thrilled to see them because those who came were seasoned veterans in prayer. During prayer a dear brother close to me began to speak in tongues and the startling part was I understood what he was saying. The Holy Spirit was giving me the interpretation of what was said, and I wrote it down on a sheet of paper. A few moments later a lady began to speak in tongues and the words were a little different but the gist of the message was on the same subject. Where two or three come together and pray agreeing, God will do something and move in their behalf. I thank the Holy Spirit for allowing me to participate with Him in this class. Without the Holy Spirit nothing that’s worthwhile will ever be accomplished. I’m glad that He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Be Blessed and Remain a Blessing.

 

A different Direction

Moving to my hometown was a great move for our church, where new people were added to the church daily. We, as a church, decided to buy an old bar across the street. After completely stripping everything out on the inside we renovated the entire building. Two large rooms and a full kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs, pastor finally had an office and we added a missionary room and a large prayer room. The first Sunday in this building the downstairs area was used for classrooms. We decided to go to the back room where the associate pastor was going to teach. As my wife and I stepped into the room to find a seat, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said come pray with me. So I told my wife that I was going upstairs to pray. The next Sunday, going to class, the Holy Spirit spoke the same words to me again, and againĀ  I left my wife and went upstairs to pray alone. After that there was no turning back. My life was changing and I met with the Holy Spirit to pray and to learn how to pray. This is one class you never graduate from, because learning to pray is a lifetime endeavor. Giving into God’s will and purpose is what we need to do, and in doing so life will never be the same. Praise the Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

 

Holy Spirit opening new doors

My friend And I had just been assigned to distribute church invitations to a part of town known as the badlands. After covering a big portion of the badlands, we came to one home where a big party was in progress. A man came to the door and we spoke to him about visiting our church, and since our church was new to the area we were unknown to many. He was not interested, but his mother said she would come. We set a time to pick her up for the next Sunday meeting. Arriving on time that Sunday morning to pick her up, her son told us she had had a lot to drink the night before and was asleep and not in any kind of shape to go with us. We spoke to her again later and she said she was sorry, but would go for sure the next Sunday. Returning to her home Sunday morning, her son said she was at a friend’s house down the street and would be too drunk to go. Arriving at her friend’s house, she asked us in and told us the lady was asleep on the couch. I asked my friend to talk with the lady of the house while I went over to sit down next to the drunken lady lying on the couch asleep. I began to ask the Lord to quicken this woman to be awake and sober. While praying this, all of a sudden the woman instantly sits straight up sober and alert, and speaks to her lady friend who owned the home. “I don’t know what happened to me, but let him touch you too.” The lady was scared after seeing what happened to her friend and said no, she didn’t want to. After feeling God’s power go through her, she never did go to church. God says He doesn’t want anyone to perish, so I still hope and pray she will come to Christ. I am thankful that God, through the Holy Spirit, has allowed me to be used for His quickening power to touch this woman’s life, and I give Him all the praise. Be Blessed and Remain a Blessing.
