Miracles and Healings
‘Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman’s testimony.’ John 4:39
One of the ways that Jesus has revealed Himself to Iranians has been through amazing supernatural encounters. And once they have experienced Christ, many Iranians cannot help but share their new found faith with others.
Iranians grow up learning that Jesus was a man of great love and a miracle worker. Some famous Persian poetry talks about supernatural things Christ did and so many Iranians have called out to Him in times of desperation. ‘My son was very seriously injured,’ shares one lady, ‘I had done my ritual prayers for 35 years, but had not received any answers so I decided to pray to Jesus and see if he would heal my son. The next day my son was completely well.’
Similarly, many Iranians have testified that while they or a family member was sick, Jesus appeared to them in a dream or vision and healed them. Others share how they had experienced a miracle after they had been persuaded to pray to Christ by reading the New Testament, seeing the Jesus film or hearing from a Christian friend.
‘I have a 5 year old daughter, but she cannot speak. Can Jesus heal her?’ a man asked his Christian boss while he was travelling for work. ‘By faith all things are possible,’ the Christian replied and he prayed for the young girl in the name of Christ. When the man returned home the next day, he saw his wife and daughter approach him and he was amazed when the girl called him ‘father’ for the first time. Excitedly he asked his wife when she had started speaking. The wife told him it was 5pm the day before – the exact time the Christian had prayed for her.
Let us pray that more Iranians will have a supernatural encounter with Christ and that others will believe because of their testimony.
- Pray that the Lord will show His mercy in increasing measure to the sick and those suffering from pain and depression in Iran. Pray for many more supernatural encounters with the Lord. Pray that the testimony of those who have been healed will bring many to faith and repentance.
- Pray that the Lord will revive faith in the hearts of His Christian servants to pray for the healing of the sick. Pray that God’s servants who go to visit the sick in the hospitals will be endued with power for miracles and healings.
- Pray the Lord will give compassion, wisdom and strength to doctors, nurses and all hospital staff for the healing of the sick. Pray that they will come to know Jesus as the great physician.
Thank you for praying. May the Lord meet your own health needs.
