Asking in Faith
Last night at jail, one of the women had a real bad ear ache and was all bent over in her chair, holding the side of her head. I didn't notice her for a while because the room was so full of women; then a young lady beside me tapped me on the shoulder and told me the other woman had a "bad ear ache." Right then, I called her over to me and asked if I could pray for her. I believed with all my heart the Lord was compassionate toward her and would heal her. There was much talking around the room on the discussion concerning a song we had just played called, "Conversations" by Brittannee Haralson. There was much talking, as I said, and
I felt such a hindering spirit as I asked GOD to touch and heal the woman. It was loud in the room, so I just took it as I wasn't concentrating well; but when the woman went back to her seat and continued to hold her ear, I couldn't hardly stand it. Usually The Lord touches the person and I can tell He's working, but I couldn't this time. What did it mean? In the middle of the night, I asked, "Lord, what was wrong? I feel like I lost something important in myself, and I need it back, but I don't know what it is. What did I do wrong in my prayer with that woman?" I was so, so happy He answered. In my spirit, He told me, "You had faith before the woman walked over, that I was going to touch her, but when you prayed, you didn't pray in faith, you prayed in fear."
O GOD, I can see it now, that is so true. All the while I prayed, I was thinking, "I sure hope You heal her Lord or else these others might not believe You can. They might leave here thinking "All this Christian stuff is a bunch of hooey." I am ashamed to admit this, but it's true and I hope it helps somebody not to ever do that. During the night, I said, "Well, I'm asking in faith now, because I know it's Your will to touch her Lord, in Jesus' Name, Amen. "Without faith, it is impossible to please GOD..." Hebrews 11:6 But let him ask in faith with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. Let not that man think he will receive anything from the Lord. James 1:6,7 Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Mark 11:24.
