On Saturday evening my friend contacted me on Facebook chat. We were meant to be seeing each other that day but due to the snow she wasn't able to make it. She said she was disappointed as she wanted me to pray for her knee, she had fallen over on some ice a few days before and her knee had frozen up and was really painful. I remembered stories of people being healed by text so I thought I would offer to pray for her over Facebook! It seemed a bit mad but I felt it was the right thing to do. I typed a prayer and there didnt seem to be any improvement, I then told her to put her hand on her poorly knee and say what I had written. I didn't hear any more from her that evening (I don't know where she went - I will have to ask her!). But I just spoke to her (again on Facebook chat) and she told me that on the Saturday evening there hadn't seemed to have been any improvement, but when she got up on the Sunday morning, her knee was a lot freer and it was at lunch time that she realised that she hadn't needed to take any pain killers all day and up until that point she had been taking lots of them. She went out for a long walk in the snow today and had a little residual pain but hardly anything at all! She is thrilled and I am so excited! Who would have thought that God likes Facebook too!! He really can use anything! Thank you Father!

I went Treasure Hunting this week with a friend of mine and we found lots of Treasure, we were amazed at how many of the people we stopped to talk to were Christians! It is lovely to speak to people who already know God, as you feel like you are talking the same language as them and it is lovely to get to pray for them. The person who stands out the most from the morning was a lady we met at the back of M&S who was wearing a blue coat with a white stripe, on the coat was also a sewn red motif of trees! She had a friend called Gareth, and Simon and her best friend was Diane. She was definitely treasure! She looked at the list of ailments and nothing related to her but she said that she was partially sighted in one eye! We asked her what was actually wrong with her eye so that we could pray specifically and her Husband said 'Its called blindness', so that made it pretty clear for us. I asked if I could put my hand on her eye and apologised as my hands were freezing. I began to pray and spoke healing over her eye, I took my hand away and she was rubbing the side of her eye and said that is was really warm and she had tears in that eye! I had felt warmth as well which was amazing as it was sooooooo seriously cold, and my hands were like blocks of ice. I told her that it was God's healing power causing the warmth and asked if we could pray again and she accepted. After praying I took my hand away and asked her if there was any difference and she said that she could see my face, she said it wasn't fully clear yet - so we prayed again! Again, when I took my hand away I asked how it was and she said it was amazing, and she could see the sky clearly. She was so happy and declared that she was very pleased that she wore her blue coat that day! We chatted for a while and I asked her how her eye was and she said it was getting more clear as the time was going on. She gave us a big hug and her Husband shook our hands and they went on their way. It was so exciting and such a thrill to see God use us like that.
