Today my husband Ray, a paramedic at the hospital in town, texted me that a woman I met several years ago at church and connected with in heart, was in the hospital and had asked for me to come pray for her. She had gotten involved with the wrong crowd and gone on the wrong path. She had been diagnosed by the doctor with a deadly disease, besides her ongoing battle with drug addiction and using meth. The Bible verse God gave me as I was praying at home for her was John 5:6, NLT: "When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, he asked him, “Would you like to get well?” I visited this woman today in the hospital, gave her a card and a little gift, and asked her this challenging question. Then I prayed for her miraculous healing and deliverance. Do you want to be well? Whatever is troubling you right now--a marriage on the verge of divorce, a troubled relationship with your kids, parents, in-laws, coworkers, boss, or someone else, financial struggles, health issues, losing your home or car, your failing ministry--Jesus can do an instant miracle as He did for this man, who laid by the pool of Bethesda for 38 long years. Jesus can do this for my friend in the hospital today, too. Ask God in faith for your miracle today.
