I have written 3 posts prior to this with books that I recommend, check those out too:

Book List (01)

Book List (02)

Book List (03)

Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ by Jeanne Guyon– This is the book I am currently reading (along with like 5 others, but I will finish this one first). I am being renewed in the place of prayer and sitting in God’s presence because of this book. She wrote it for those who didn’t know how to read, so it is a very easy read and she explains everything very simply. The book is basically about “the prayer of simplicity”. Check it out, it is absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!

Remarkable Miracles by G.C. Bevington– Wonderful book on faith and healing. I highly recommend reading it. It will inspire you and challenge you to give yourself to prayer and to really living in faith!

***For both of these books I found free online books. If you just click the links on the titles you can read them! 🙂 If you want to buy them you can click the author’s name.***

I’ve been praying and wrestling with the topic of healing lately. Is the the will of the Lord to heal every time, or do we need to pray “if it is Your will”. These are a few of the questions that have been running through my head. Mostly because if it is His will, then why am I not believing it? Why am I not praying for people? So it really makes me confront my disbelief.

My friend Wesley read this book that has brought him some clarity on this topic. And he gave me the link and I am reading it right now. It is amazing!

Ex. 15:26 tells us one aspect of who God is. He says that He is our Healer. He is specifically talking to Israel in this passage, and He is still talking to them, but those of us who are His children, we have been grafted in, and so He is our Healer too! Do we acknowledge Him as our Healer? Not very often. Why do we not see people healed? Who actually believes that He is going to do it? I know that I really struggle with this.

Well this book by G.C. Bevington, is a testimony to God’s faithfulness in healing. This man really lived prayer and fasting. And healing was an overflow because of his perseverance in prayer and in faith! I am being challenged every time I read this book! Well it is free! So I encourage you to read this book!

You can read it here!

Another really encouraging thing about this book is the way that Bevington lives his life. He never does ANYTHING without praying and asking the Lord and if he does something other then what the Lord is telling him, the Lord always shows him this and then he is obedient. He doesn’t move, even if he has to wait for days, until the Lord tells him where to go. He never has money or a place to sleep, but He goes in faith knowing the Lord is going to provide for him. I want this kind of faith. Especially for the lifestyle that I know the Lord is calling me to. I am to give myself to prayer and fasting. And to do this, I have to be completely dependent on Him! For everything, my food, money, clothes, gas, a place to live. Because I am not “doing” anything. I myself, and not doing anything that I can fall back on. I have no security, but Jesus Christ! Thank You JESUS! Make me more dependent on You! Increase all of our faith!

I have already mentioned this website in a previous post, but I wanted to mention it again and ask that anyone who reads this post would go and visit this website and pray for this family! Tricia (she has cystic fibrosis) is in need of new lungs and is on the list for a transplant. Her daughter, Gwyneth Rose, is a preemie who is 7 weeks old and is 1lb and 10 oz. Nathan is the husband of Tricia and the father of Gwyneth and has been blogging their journey. Its an incredible story and they are living out what it means to trust in the Lord and to be followers of Jesus Christ.

Being an intercessory missionary is pretty amazing. But it really challenges your faith and trust in the Lord. I am full time at IHOP-AC but this does not mean that I am paid by IHOP-AC. We are a non-profit organization and we only get money that people give to us. I have to raise my own money to be full time. I became full time in January and I am still seeking the Lord to provide on a monthly basis. I know that eventually I will have people who are funding the prayer movement through me on a monthly basis, but right now I am still gradually getting there. I have one person who funds me monthly and then like two days ago I received two more! God is being so faithful!

Also, my car broke down on Valentine’s day, and I had no idea how I was going to pay for it, but I just drove it to the mechanics and trusted the Lord. (Probably the first time I’ve ever not cried when my car broke down.) And the next night the Lord provided the money to fix my car plus extra!

Then about two days later I received a bill in the mail for something I had no idea I had to pay, and I didn’t trust the Lord. I immediately teared up and worry rose in my heart. But David Gordon, the director of IHOP-AC, reminded me that the Lord is faithful and He will provide. And sure enough a couple days later He provided the money!

I am so blown away by God. He always provides, but there are times when worry still rises in my heart! Help me God!

I just wanted all of you to know how AMAZING our God is! He provides, trust in Him and He will take care of EVERYTHING! Seriously. 🙂

I found this blog site on someone’s facebook page. This is an incredible story of a husband, wife and baby. The wife has cystic fibrosis and just had the baby Jan. 8th. The baby is I think, 1 lbs 6 oz. This is an incredible story! The wife is going to be hopefully on a donor list for a double lung transplant.

The web page is cfhusband.blogspot.com

Check it out, read and PRAY! This family would appreciate our prayers! They are an encouragement to me, and I know they will be to you too. They have incredible faith.
