I am a massage therapist and I’ve always prayed before a massage and also in my heart while working. This past week has been a bit different. My boss asked me to see his Mom, who has cancer. I let him know that massage is not recommended, because it promotes circulation and risks metastasis. She then got the doctors approval and I went to see her. I went, and before me was a very frail woman with a very distended abdomen. I gave her a lovely massage and close to the end she told me her painkillers had worn off and that she’s in bad pain in her abdomen.
Then I (for the first time ever while at work!) told her I’m a Christian and asked if I could pray for the pain to leave . .. she said yes and I prayed. The pain was relieved! She got emotional and so did I. I shared the Gospel of Jesus with her and she told me she’s Jewish.
After I left her house, I drove a bit and then pulled over and sobbed thanking the Lord for what He just did. And suddenly a fear of losing my job hit me and I began to pray. I got Joshua 1:9 and felt better, I focussed on the fact that Jesus is my boss and went on my way.
On Saturday while working I got a word of knowledge for the woman I was working on… the Holy Spirit to give me the opportunity to share it with her! I ended up giving it to her, praying for her and I asked if she knew Jesus and she told me she’s Jewish! I was like … Lord ?! You’re sending me to a lot of Jewish people! lol!
I was a lot more bold the this time round and thanks to the Spirit Lifestyle video series on the portal, I intend to go out praying for more and more people everyday. Thank you for reading this long post, God bless you and be encouraged!
