“I am ministering today to a man named Angelo who received Christ at Whitmore Square recently. Now hospitalised with severe pain in his leg doctors are looking to amputate. I am visiting Angelo today, fasting, believing God to cast out this spirit of infirmity and set him free. It is interesting the last time I visited this hospital (many years ago) a woman was raised up from life support. I go confident not in my own strength but in His power and authority.”
“Carol (on holidays from work) offered to join me at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital today to pray for Angelo. We arrived in the ward to find him in severe pain in his right leg, so much so his eyes were red and watering. (Two years ago he had been involved in a motorbike accident, trying to avoid hitting a child who had wandered on to the road). He has had no pain relief, although just before we arrived the nurse gave Angelo one tablet. By the time we started praying it hadn’t taken effect.
The doctors had a conference this morning and agreed there would be little option but to amputate right at the very top of his leg. No chance of prosthetics.
We tool authority in Jesus’ Name over pain and sickness and commanded healing to come. After the first time he thought something was happening. After the second time he was amazed…the pain had completely gone! He was overwhelmed. His eyes cleared up and was able to sit up on his bed which he was unable to do previously.
Carol and I encouraged him to try to stand but he was unable, so we prayed again. We left him at that point after giving thanks together and leaving him a pocket New Testament.
Angelo was so encouraged and says he is not going to let them amputate his leg now. We are believing for more breakthroughs to come. It was a great experience and so encouraging to see God at work in this new believer’s life.”
