8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you.9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.
Saint Matthew Lutheran Church – Walnut Creek CA
Observation: The Healing Prayers we have twice a month (2nd and 4th Tuesday) at Saint Matthew have proven to be an amazing Kingdom opportunity, of which I have been the beneficiary. A word of knowledge was shared with me a month ago, three days before I had surgery. When the team prayed for me I had an incredible relaxation in my back and shoulders that had been causing me pain and lack of sleep for a couple of months. They promised I would sleep like a baby that night, and I did. They also prayed that my surgery would go well, which it did though much more extensive than expected, and I had minimal pain following surgery.
Action: Thank you, Lord! We see exactly what Jesus said, when we pray for the sick and we can proclaim, “The Kingdom of God has come near to you.”
