Healing For a Co -Worker III
What does a believer do when a co-worker is injured on the job? Here’s what one person did:
Early in 2010, one of our ambulances was involved in an accident while on a call. The truck was severely damaged and both crew members suffered injuries severe enough to take time off work to recover. About nine months later, I was talking with one of the men from that crew about miracles and healing. Although he’s a believer like me, he hasn’t seen the miraculous healings that I have. As we got deeper into our conversation, he asked me a question that led to this discussion:
“You said you see a lot of people healed. What do you do that’s different from everyone else who doesn’t see consistent results when they pray?”
“I learned that begging God to heal people doesn’t work. So instead of asking God to heal someone, I usually command healing to happen.” I pretended his wrist was injured and demonstrated my method on his wrist. “If I wanted to get your wrist healed, I’d just place my hand on it and say, I command this wrist to be healed in the name of Jesus. I command tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves and bones to be healed. I sometimes see spirits when I close my eyes and if I saw one I would tell it to leave. I learned that Jesus gave us the authority to do these things in His name.”
“Remember the accident I was in last year? I’m still having pretty bad back pain from it, even though I went through physical therapy.”
“Tell you what… I’ll give you another demonstration. Let’s get your back healed and you can watch how I do it.”
So there we were in a parking lot, surrounded by ambulances, just a few blocks from a major hospital. All the high-tech medical equipment and education in town couldn’t take away his back pain. I couldn’t help but marvel at the irony of what was happening. I placed my hand on his back. “I command pain and inflammation to leave. I command discs, tendons, nerves, ligaments, and muscles to be healed, and bones to be aligned.” I asked how he felt.
He twisted from side to side a few times. “Wow… it feels great!”
“Sweet. I love it when God does that. Well, I guess I better be going.”
He gave me a hug. “Thanks, man, I really appreciate your time and everything you taught me.”
“My pleasure.” I went inside, clocked out then came back out and got in my car. On the drive home I was awed by how easily God’s power can be released through his kids.
I followed up with my co-worker the week after we prayed and asked how his back was doing. He said it was great. He hiked the Skyline trail at Mt. Rainier the next day and told me about his plans to climb to the summit.
