You Be The Judge

Yesterday Southern Man got word that a good friend, 'bout his age and 'bout in the same shape (or lack thereof), was in the hospital for chest pain and shortness of breath. It's not the first time that he's had these problems and we worry about it as his own father passed before his time of heart problems. So Southern Man went by the hospital and talked to him for a bit and then as friend was to be taken to surgery for inspection of his arteries Southern Man went on to our singles group monthly morning coffee meeting. Of course the first thing he did was tell them where he had been and the first thing they did was pray. This is a pretty prayin' group - as an old-school Nazarene Southern Man finds them a bit charismatic for his taste and the occasional praying in tongues makes him nervous - but prayer is prayer. And one of the members prayed specifically for my friend's arteries to be supernaturally cleared of all blockages.

Friend checks in later that afternoon. His report: "The doctors said they'd never seen cleaner arteries."

You be the judge.

Ask your friends to pray for me. I have an ongoing serious problem for about 14 years that I cannot discuss with anyone, but God knows what it is.

old school too! Our denomination sprang from the holiness movement. You must visit Much has been lost through this generation compromising the integrity of the Word. It was common for the nazarenes to speak and pray for people in tongues. It is returning to more and more people the closer they get to the heart of God. Huge congregations of baptists are being baptized in the spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues. Wow! The Spirit is moving. You only have to pay attention (the Word says 'be still') I hope your friend realizes that God touched him via the compassion and love from you and your friends. Keep joining in unity.!!
