MEMORY STONES

 A LITTLE ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF TESTIMONY… 

As Catholics, we don’t talk much about giving testimonies.  These days, they are generally not part of our tradition like they once were. By testimony, we simply mean ‘our story’. 

 Telling our story is NOT to bring us glory but to be a witness to what God is doing in our lives so that the faith of those who listen to us may be built up. We are bragging about Jesus! 

 The word 'testimony’ comes from the Hebrew 'Aydooth' which means 'do it again with the same power and authority.’  Every time we give testimony we are saying “Lord, 'do it again' with the same power and authority.” 

 You may have heard of the scripture from Revelation 19:10 which tells us,

“The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” 

 The power of a testimony has the ability to drive future miracles in the lives of others - just as Jesus did through His life’s story - His testimony.  By sharing our testimony, we make sure that we don’t forget what God has done for us.  We create a firm memory - a Memory Stone - of God’s goodness which is a great encouragement for others.  

“If you have a message of encouragement for the people, please speak” (Acts 13:15). 

I attended a healing service in Lincoln in September and I heard the call that if you were worried about a right eye problem to put your hand up.  (I'd had a long drive to Lincoln and was concerned about a large floater in my right eye which was noticeably intrusive, bigger and blacker than before because I'd had a torn retina in the past and have small floaters). I put my hand up and just put my trust in the power of prayer. The ministry team prayed over me - a powerful experience.

 

After the service, I realised the floater was no longer intrusive and I knew I had experienced something wonderful. I drove home with a smile on my face. It remains healed.

"I have been lactose intolerant for many years and I have always had to take medicine even after taking lactose intolerant milk.

 

After the healing service, I received prayer for healing from this intolerance and have had real milk for the first time in my life and have had no side effects.

 

I’m truly grateful to the Lord. Thank you Jesus."

“The talks were all packed full of riches - like an overflowing banquet which spoke directly to my heart.  

 

The prayer ministry session I received was true and penetrating and gentle and precise and comprehensive - thank you Jesus and thank you to the team.  

 

It seemed a very professional and holy, well thought through and perfectly organised retreat."

"How did God work in your life this weekend?"
“He has strengthened me. The prayer ministry was very helpful. I am going away filled with the Holy Spirit and determined to spread the Spirit more into my life. I went to confession for the first time in many years."

"For the last four years I have had a dislocated shoulder and even after a lot of painful medical intervention and painkillers, I still couldn’t raise my hand above my shoulders.

 

After a 'word of knowledge' at the healing service, I received some prayer and I was encouraged to raise my hand.  When I tried I was amazed to find that I could raise my hand over my head for the first time in years.

Now I can hold my baby! I am fully healed. Thank you Jesus!"

"I was hurt as a child and it has been a painful memory. I lived in that trauma for many years.

 

During the healing service when I received prayer, the Lord touched that part of my life. I now feel free again!

 

I feel Jesus has loved me and healed me from shame, guilt and un-forgiveness."

“For nearly ten years I have not been able to sing with my full voice because of traumas I suffered at that time. Recently I attended a healing retreat and a ministry team prayed with me.

 

Over the weekend, I was finally able to sing with my whole voice from the heart in a way that I never had before. I know I am on a journey but I feel free in a way that I never have before"

“I was blessed at every single moment of this retreat. I got healed from three wounds which I have experienced because of a “lack” in my mother and father. Thank you Jesus"

"Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." (ROMANS 12:2)
