A mother brought her little blind boy every night and we were there 14 days. She brought him every night. I prayed for him every night for 13 nights in a row, and he went home blind.
And on the 14th night she brought him in again and I saw her weeping when it came for time for the prayer, and you know what? I know why see was weak, she didn’t want to go home with her son still blind and I went to pray for him first.
I must say, I was kinda fueled up you know, ready to go, but as I approached that little boy, I became more curious. I wanted to see what was wrong with his eyes. So before I prayed for him, I stretched his eyelids open…
He didn’t have any eyes.
He had no cornea.
He had no pupil.
I became intimidated instantly, I wanna move on. Strange… I seem to have the faith to pray for the blind, but someone who didn’t have eyes, it just deserted me.
I wanna move on, I felt like; I can’t pray for this kid, he doesn’t have any eyes. And I did. I took a step to move on and pray for the next person. And suddenly, something inside me welled up so strong, that it was like a surge… and the Holy Spirit reminded me what Jesus promised us; whatever you ask in my name, I will do that for you.
I became instantly encouraged. I realized afterwards what I was experiencing was a super natural gift from the Holy Spirit of faith rising up inside of me. And I put my thumb on that little boys eyes and I just said this simple prayer; “Jesus, in the name of Jesus, Give this boy new eyes.” and I took my thumbs away and he opened his eyes! I became so happy! I knew instantly he was healed because he now had these beautiful big brown eyes!
I said to his mother; “Ask him what you look like,” because I knew he was born totally blind. He never seen his mother.
She asked him. He looked up and said; “Mommy, you’re so beautiful!”
She just burst out crying. I couldn’t help myself. I just began to cry with her. It was such an amazing, emotional moment.
I went to my trailer that night and I couldn’t sleep. I just lay in my bed the whole night thinking, Jesus, you’re the most wonderful person in the world, there’s nobody like you. In just a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, as the bible says; you changed that boy’s life forever…
