So I prayed quite a bit; I prayed blessing on this man, on his business, on his real estate holdings. But wait, there's more!
It's kindness that leads to repentance. It really is.

Recently my friend, Don Pirozok, was with a middle- aged mother and grandmother. Both of these precious ladies have been praying, interceding and absolutely pouring themselves out… seeking a move of God for their region and Country.
Another adventure began when Laurs came with the team to minister in the streets. As the team spread out into different areas of the downtown, Laurs asked the Lord, “Where do I go?” Jesus said to her, “Go where my people are”. So she was led close to where some homeless people were hanging and close to an empty bottle depot.
AN IMPAIRED KNEE HEALED
A person’s knee was water logged. He couldn’t t move it and it was swollen badly. He could only limp along in a very stiff fashion. When he saw and heard what was going on, he asked for healing. We said to him, “Do you know that you can have Jesus in your heart and all your sins wiped clean and you can renounce all other Gods?” He accepted Jesus as his Lord. We suggested that he ask Jesus himself for healing, Then Laurs and Robert put their hands on him and started to speak in tongues. Holy Spirit said, “Tell him to start moving his knee.” After he moved his knee 20 times he ran across the road, did some sit ups, did a dance – a jig for the group, and then got his medicine and threw it out” He said, “I don’t need it anymore.” He is now planning on going back home soon to witness to his family and his home Village. (He has First Nations background.) Three other people were watching this and gave their hearts to the Lord Jesus too!
My friend said, “Then on Sunday i stood on that corner started to pray and presence of the Lord was there, I spoke out loud, “This corner belongs to Jesus , every demon go and may alcohol taste like poison and drugs be revolting)” Another Muslim person was listening he started to cry , he wanted prayer and made Jesus His Lord .
Just this PM my friend, Lance Hollet, and I were in Hillside mall. We came upon an East Indian couple. To make a longer story short. The man has severe arthritis in the knee. He was healed when Lance commanded the arthritis to go but, interestingly, he had to command it 3 times! The East-Indian man gave the healing a very thorough going over and a series of physical test and rejoiced, declaring, “There is no pain, swelling or impairment in any way” Then it was his wife’s turn. She had an incurable damaged muscle in her back; she also had a rib condition that gave her great pain and impeded her sleep greatly. These conditions were ongoing for either 20 years or 10 years, I forget which. Anyway, she too was healed and declared as much after giving her back muscle and rib cage thorough tests and exercises right there in the Mall.
The next day…yesterday, I deliberately went by the Dollar store to see how she was doing. She said, “I slept the whole night through without pain. It’s a little sore today but I think that’s because I overworked it in my enthusiasm.”
Jesus is indeed wonderful and He continues to heal, save, and set-free people right out there in the marketplace.
It Is :
1) Outside the 4 Walls
2) Ordinary Christians and Pastors are being used and giving leadership
3) Not Commercialized
4) Quick Obedience
5) A Longing to See Souls Saved
6) Great Grace to Share the Gospel and to “Take it to the streets”
7) An Unusual Amount of Salvations
8) Prayer, Intercession, Crying out For the Lost
9) A Heart of Compassion
10) Signs and Wonders and regular Supernatural Occurrences—-(without boasting or promoting the spectacular)
These are ten elements that seem to accompany those who are being led by God here in The Pacific Northwest. This move of God resembles the early Church in that it is out into the neighborhoods, the streets and the marketplace where life is lived every day. God is using ordinary men, women, and children who have surrendered to a “complete dependency on Jesus” and are being led by the Spirit of God. The highest value seems to be “pleasing God,” by seeking and reaching the lost. These saints are “not motivated by money,” instead are taking great time at personal cost to follow Jesus into what they expect is full-on revival and harvest.
These miracles of harvest are “not exploited” by commercialization. These healings and deliverances seem to be rather numerous and common. The desire not to offend the Holy Spirit by “attempting to own” the glory of miracles has created a childlike simplicity among the laborers. There is no “one man show” or the “man or woman of God” syndrome. Ordinary saints are walking in extraordinary dependence on the Holy Spirit. The gospel is shared in simplicity with what looks like “great grace”. Continual prayer is manifesting day and night for this present move of God. The “Agape-love of God” is filling the harvesters so “fear of rejection and fear of man” is giving way to compassion and vision. This compassion brings a deep longing for the most hardened sinners to be healed and saved. Miracles are an everyday event as evidenced by the numbers of “divine appointments” and healings.
Jesus may this report motivate us to see the season is “harvest time” and a very real outpouring of the Holy Spirit is just outside our homes and “right next door.”
