A group of individuals were praying for a lady who was
sitting in the front area of a Methodist church. I was asked to
come pray for the lady. The lady seemed to have some kind of
edema and she said she thought it was her kidneys. I stepped
aside for a while to ask the LORD what to pray for and how to
I closed my eyes and in a vision I saw a very large,
swollen hand. When I opened my eyes, I noticed the lady had
her hands raised but she had a very unusual large swollen hand.
Now I knew I was to pray for her, but I didn’t know what to
pray. As I waited on the Lord, He said to me, “Ask her if she
believes I can heal her.” I told her what the Lord said in
Spanish, “Dios dice, crea que Dios puede a sanar?”
Not once did she acknowledge that she believed that the Lord would heal her. Instead she repeatedly said “I love the
Lord, I love the Lord, I love the Lord” in Spanish.
The Lord said, “Tell her I want to heal her first of her doubt, than she will
be made whole.” I told the lady these words, she began to
weep. She acknowledged that she did not believe that the Lord
would heal her. The surprise to the church was that she was the
pastor’s wife of that church. Once she confessed of the doubt
she had, her body was healed starting with the swollen hands.
I have learned that when you pray for someone, and they
keep on addressing something that has nothing to do with the
prayer, there is something keeping them from receiving the
prayer. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, but not yet
seen. Doubt will continue to keep you from receiving
everything that is eternally yours.
