I announced this morning at the Anglican healing service that even if we didn’t realise it, each one of us received benefits.
The reading was from Palm 103 ‘… And forget not all his benefits.’ I spoke on: he forgives ALL our sin. He heals ALL our diseases. He crowns us ALL with love and compassion and ALL of us can have our strength renewed. What followed was extraordinary as in a rather non-Anglican (traditional) manner around 20 people left the safe confines of their pew and came forward for healing and to be anointed with oil.
I prayed for people who had strokes, sore legs, cancer and one guy who had depression for many years. God met with us amazingly! I just can’t take it for granted, people left the church service different to how they arrived.
