My family and I took a day trip to Clinton, OK to go to the Water Zoo indoor water park. I happened to see a lady floating in the lazy river near us who had a neck brace on. As I floated next to her I asked her why she had the neck brace and if she was in pain. She said she had a major surgery a month ago involving fusions in her neck.
I asked her what her level of pain was on a scale from one to ten. She said it has been an eight or higher since the surgery. It was an eight at the moment. I asked if I could pray for her. She said yes and that she was also a believer.
I prayed and the pain decreased from an eight to a four. So I prayed again, and this time it dropped to a two. The third time I prayed, the pain completely left to a zero.
"There's no more pain at all! It's totally gone," she explained. She hadn't been pain free in over a month. I asked her what she felt as I prayed for her. "It was a warm feeling over my neck. It felt like a hand was touching my neck. Then the pain left."
Remember the kingdom of God is at hand, even when you are floating in the lazy river at the water park. Our job is to simply, look, listen and respond and put Jesus on display with love and power.
