Praying For Your Needs: April 5, 2017

Pat and Terry pray for you and deliver words of knowledge through the power of the Holy Spirit for your healing. Read Transcript

Last August, Charles Lockridge woke up one morning

and both sides of his face had completely fallen.

He was later diagnosed with a severe case of Bell's palsy.

Charles had already been suffering acute back pain

for three years.

So after this double whammy, he was

in desperate need of healing.

NARRATOR: In 2013, Charles Lockridge

was sitting down in a chair when it broke.

Feet went up, and I landed on my back.

NARRATOR: The next day, he started

feeling a sharp pain in his back between the shoulder blades.

It just wouldn't go away, wouldn't stop.

And it just felt like somebody was jabbing

me all the time or something.

NARRATOR: After battling the pain for a few months,

he went to his doctor who put him in physical therapy.

It helped for a while, but the pain soon came back.

Almost two years later, the pain became more insistent,

and it was starting to become a regular part of my life again.

That's when I went back to the doctor's.

NARRATOR: Surgery was an option, but his doctor first

wanted him to try a more extreme physical therapy regime.

And they sent me off to what's called a back boot

camp, where you specifically work

on strengthening your back.

It's intensive.

NARRATOR: The therapy only gave him temporary relief,

and Charles found it difficult to keep up his normal life.

It impacts your quality of life because you're in pain.

And being in pain wears you out.

You can't do a lot of the things that you

would like to do when there's pain involved.

You just want relief.

NARRATOR: One morning in 2016, he woke up to another problem.

I could not see out of my left eye.

All I could see was some shapes and some colors.

And everything would be very, very fuzzy.

NARRATOR: He was diagnosed with Bell's palsy,

a condition that weakens the muscles in the face.

It also left his eye red and swollen.

If my back's messed up, and this is messed up,

and now I can't even see, what am I going to do?

I can't work.

I couldn't make any sense out of it.

NARRATOR: The doctor gave him medication

for his facial muscles, but it would take at least four

to six months for his eye to heal.

They really had nothing for the eye, just a wait

and see at that point.

I just kept praying.

I kept praying.

You know, sometimes my frustration would come out,

and you know, hey, what's taking so long?

NARRATOR: Two months later, Charles

was watching TV at his home.

If I'm at home by myself, I'll turn on the TV,

and I'll look for something that I think will lift my spirits.

That day, I just ran across "The 700 Club,"

and Terry starts praying.

Someone else, you've had a fall that's really

thrown your back out of whack.

And nothing you take seems to help at all.

God's healing that for you right now, just receive it.

PAT ROBERTSON: Thank you, Lord.

Thank you, Lord.

And I didn't necessarily know that it was for me.

But when she prayed for the eye--

Someone else, you have a condition with your eye.

It's like the very rim, top and bottom, gets red,

and there's a crustiness that comes from it,

but it's very irritating.

God's healing that for you right now.

I just knew.

I just knew that it was, that it was for me.

And I started saying thank you.

I started saying thank you, Lord.

I woke up the next day, and the eye was better, like just all

the way better.

As soon as I woke up, I noticed it.

NARRATOR: Charles also noticed something else.

Over the next week, all of a sudden,

it dawned on me that my back doesn't hurt anymore.

NARRATOR: With his back pain completely gone,

Charles went back to work and has been working pain-free ever


Sometimes it takes trusting Him

when it doesn't look like there's

anything happening, where every indicator is no,

it's not going to work.

And I think sometimes God looks for those situations

because then it's clearly Him.

It is clearly Him.

And so many of you, I know, are encouraged

by what happened to Charles.

And we want to pray for you today.

Take a look at the needs that you have.

God is able, not only able but willing.

And so let's pray together for His Spirit

to come and to move in your life today.


We've got some amazing reports here.

Pat, this is Grace, who lives in Melbourne, Florida.

She injured her knee last January.

She's had pain ever since.

Then last February, she's watching this program,

and you gave this word.

"Somebody else has a knee problem.

You've got no strength in your knees.

Your legs are knocking together.

There's no strength.

Strength is coming into both of those legs.

You'll be able to walk and run and climb."

She laid her hand on her knee, felt healing flowing into it.

She's had no pain or problem with it since that day.

PAT ROBERTSON: Let's join together.

Folks, let's pray.

Let's believe God.

Father, nothing is impossible with You.

How we thank you, Lord.

Somebody's coughing up blood.

You've even suspected it's tuberculosis.

That's not what you've got.

But it may be a bleeding ulcer, but there's something in there

that's-- you're coughing blood.

And I think the name is Evelyn.

But you're completely healed right now.

You'll feel warmth in the middle of your diaphragm.

And from this moment on, you're healed.


Someone else, you have a problem

in the arteries of your calves.

And it has a strong impact on your feet.

And God is opening that up, healing it for you.

Your vascular problems are gone now in Jesus' name.

Thank you, Lord.

Now, Lord, for others in this audience

that have a problem, Lord, they're crying out to you.

Even as we speak, they're saying, oh, God, how about me.

How about me?

How about me?

Listen to their cry.

All across the world, people are crying out, how about me.

Help me, Lord, please help me.

And the people are hearing right now.

The Lord is hearing your cry.

And may the anointing of the Lord come into your life.

May you know complete deliverance.

And may you be free from pain and suffering and poverty

from this moment on.

In Jesus' name, amen.


And amen.

OK, give us a call.

If you need further prayer, we're here for you.

If you have an answer to prayer, we'd love to hear from you,

but please call.
