A Divine Appointment

Yesterday in bible study I witnessed a divine appointment. This week our church has hosted Team Impact, a group of power lifters who use their talents to share the Good News. We had the privilege to have one of its members visited in my bible study class.

This man shared a story of a very sick little girl who had recently lost her battle with cancer. He explained that although he, his church, and her family prayed for healing on earth as only God could provide, God’s plan and perfect will was for this little girl was to come to complete healing in His presence.

What this gentleman did not know is that one of our class members is fighting cancer. On this day my dear Christian brother felt strong enough to attend church with his wife.

Because of this divine encounter, our class gathered around our friend to lay hands on him and claim healing from this illness. We claimed as Martha did when Jesus arrived after Lazarus was dead that “even now” God could heal our dear brother from his cancer. We all voiced healing in the earthly realms but we also understand that God’s plan maybe for a perfect healing.

Ladies, I can honestly say that this prayer time was one of the most powerful things I have experienced. Through the simple act of two men meeting and group prayer I believe my bible class and our church will witness God’s glory and perfect plan.

Read: John 11:1-44
