A woman was in financial dire straits, owing them £200.00. We prayed together at about 2pm, expressing our faith in God, reminding Him of what He had done before and heartened that He had not changed.
About three hours later she received a visit from a friend who was suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Apart from buying food costing about £60.00 for the family, he also blessed them with £300.00.

9 For I am the least of the apostles , who am not worthy to be called an apostle , because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am , and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all , yet not I , but the grace of God which was with me. 1Cor 15:9-10
31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles , They shall run and not be weary , They shall walk and not faint. Isa40:31 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things , So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Ps103:5 10 “He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland , a howling wilderness; He encircled him , He instructed him , He kept him as the apple of His eye. 11 As an eagle stirs up its nest , Hovers over its young , Spreading out its wings , taking them up , Carrying them on its wings , 7 I have fought the good fight , I have finished the race , I have kept the faith. 2Tim4:7
Portuguese speaking came into a church in crutches where the word was preached in English but because the power of God was present to heal. She was saved and healed.
She came back the following week in high heels!
The woman with the issue of blood said something to herself. She followed it a corresponding action. She refused to allow the throng to discourage her. She refused the law to discourage her. When the power of God is present to heal, let nothing distract you. Wade into the river and come put whole.
25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”
31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ “
32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
