I arrived at a campground and met a lady and her boyfriend who were sleeping in their ol’ pickup truck containing all of their belongings.
We sat down at a picnic table while the lady prepared some bean burritos. She mentioned that her hands were hurting from arthritis she’d had throughout her body for 15 years.
We had talked already about God and I knew she believed in Jesus. I asked her, “you know in the Bible how it says if a follower of Jesus lays their hands on someone with a sickness they will be made well?”
“Yes”, she replied.
“Well (while stretching out my hands), may I see your hands?”
At first she was hesitant because it seemed like an odd request, but her boyfriend encouraged her by saying “give ’em your hand honey!”
I held her hands briefly and said “well, I’ve laid my hands on you now, and now you are well by the power of Jesus.”
She then checked out her joints and exclaimed that she was completely well! She said she had been suffering with arthritis for 15 years and had never felt this good. It was completely gone!
