How I Got the Victory Through Prayer By Luke Newman / firstname.lastname@example.org
September 6 2012 Since I came to UK to visit my children and grand kidz, I have been praying desperately since a few mornings during my Word time and speaking in tongues a lot, to get rid of some deep emotional pain in my heart! It all happened when a girl that I dearly loved dropped me overnight and I got left with a broken heart. Over a period of almost 2 years, I had many prayers and extreme battles. Nothing seems to give me the peace and greater victory I needed to stay alive for Him!! But something beautiful happened to me today: I cried out all the tears of my broken heart for good! It reminded of the experience of the hero in â€œthe Shackâ€? when he meets the Holy Spirit and later with God when he had to forgive the murderer of his daughter.
First Terez who knew where I was at, prayed for me thoroughly in London at the healing meeting. Then Joan from Italy, who is on Terez healing team, came to stay in the home where I was in Milton Keynes. She first prayed for me one day but felt the Lord had a bigger deliverance for me. So the next day, she was talking to me about healing but wanted to minister to me more thoroughly. We started to hug before I was leaving. This all happened in my room so we didn't get disturbed during the whole time. I started to cry like I sometimes do, because of my emotional stress. Usually I stop there and hold it back, because if I let go, the pain becomes too strong. But Joan started right away to speak in tongues and hold me tight and caress my hair. More tears, more tears, more speaking in tongues. I was holding her like she was Jesus, stroking her hair, speaking in tongues and telling the Lord I wanted to give Him all and get the victory over my broken heart. More tongues, more tears with strong sobbing and feeling the deep hurt. I hold on to her, while getting very heavy emotionally and hurting so much deep inside. She said she felt the Lord helping her to carry my weight, I am 75 kg! I had a vision that I was on a tight rope in the dark with fog around me, and the Lord was telling me to walk further on the rope. I had no strength. In the same time Joan was getting: Don't try to be strong just let go! Sobbing, tongues, I could only speak one word at a time, so much pain, so difficult to move, I was stuck!! But then in the vision I started to walk slowly and in front of me on the rope someone came to hold my hand and help me finish the crossing to the end, where there was a stand. "I made it over, I crossed". More tongues, more cry and sobbing, deep stuff coming from inside. (The all thing lasted at least 2 hours!! GB Joan for her giving and perseverance, she says that it was all the Lord!!)) When I calmed down, we sat down and
she told me that she believe that I have some resentment in my heart against the Lord. I told her: Yes I believe He could have done it another way. She got that if I trust, later I will understand and that Jesus didn't do it, the sister I loved choose to back off herself. I had forgiven that sister, but we prayed against my resentment against the Lord. Then I prayed for Joan in tongues and it was new tongues. After I felt so happy and free! I am smiling again. Isn't the Lord beautiful? Hallelujah! Victory is of the Lord! Joan was so happy too, as she is launching in the healing ministry and starting to speak publicly. GBH! I believe that in the Spirit I really hugged Jesus and the Holy Spirit poured Her love on Me so I could get all that bad stuff out. The power of the Holy Ghost cleansed me and regenerated me. I am so thankful this ordeal is over! So thankful! ILY Jesus! God bless Terez & Chris, Joan and all their team for their faith and perseverance. John 15:8. It make me want to do the same! ILY! Luke Newman A thought from this morning's devotional: (By Paul White) Paul stated that our new man is “renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him” (Colossians 3:10); and that we keep from conforming to this world by being, “transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2). Peter stated that if a believer does not have various fruits in their life, such as faith, patience, godliness, etc, it is because he “hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins” (2 Peter 1:9). Again, it all comes back to what the believer knows about what Jesus has done for them.
This is why Satan goes after our thought life with such fervor. He knows that he has been defeated at Calvary, and stripped of all of his power, but he thrives on our ignorance of those facts. If we feel like we must defeat the devil, then he will gladly go to war with us, since he cannot war with Christ. What we do not know about who we are in Jesus equips the devil to play with our lives, trapping us in vice and sin. Paul told Timothy to teach the people in his church who condemn themselves, so that God would help them to change their minds toward the truth (2 Timothy 2:25). This knowledge would â€œrecover them out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his willâ€? (verse 26). What does the Word say about you, the believer? Know these things and hide them in your heart. It says that you are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21); that you are one of the sons of God (John 1:12); that you are no longer a servant, but a son, and if a son then an heir of God through Christ (Galatians 4:7); that you are complete in Him (Colossians 2:10); that you used to be a sinner, but now you are washed, sanctified and justified (1 Corinthians 6:11), and that because you are sanctified, you are perfect in the eyes of the Father (Hebrews 10:14).
