Healing in a Restaurant

December 2014

Please read Healings on the Street before reading this story.

After an unfruitful day, trying to find sick/injured people on the street for whom he could pray, Rob came back disappointed. So I prayed to God for a chance of finding a person who has pain, so that Rob could pray for healing.

That very evening, God answered my prayer.

We went to an Italian restaurant to have our evening meal. We were served by a very friendly waitress. My heart started to miss a beat when I saw her and I felt the Holy Spirit saying that she needed healing. After she finished serving us, I plucked up the courage to ask her if she had any pain in her body. She looked surprise at the question, but then continued to answer yes, she has a sore right foot - which, funnily enough, was the foot that was nearest to Rob (in respect to our seating).

After getting her permission to pray for her foot, I turned to Rob and said, "Go for it, Rob. Pray for her!". Rob bent down to reach her ankle and prayed a quick 5-second prayer thanking Jesus for the healing that He has brought her. 

I asked for her to test it and to walk on it. She walked a few paces back and forth by our table, then burst into smiles saying, "How did you do it?" I asked if the pain was gone, and she confirmed it with a resounding yes! We told her that it wasn't us who had healed her, but that it was Jesus. She looked at us and said, "I feel tingling on my arm". I replied saying, "That's the Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of Jesus".

She reached over and held both of our hands and thanked us. We encouraged her to seek Jesus for her life as He is real and He loves her.  

Rob went home feeling ecstatic. God is so faithful in building up our faith when we take that first step of obeying the command He gave us in the Great Commission.

Glory be to God!
