Share Your Comments I am part of the Oregon Conference Executive Committee that met today, Thursday, at the Gladstone office. I have never heard so many testimonies in the reports that were given that witnessed to God's amazing miracles specifically started from prayers. Here are a few:
1. Generosity of givers resulting in paying up a number of large debts of Oregon Conference schools, a miracle that started with prayers to God about a vision and a need to focus on mission.
2. Support of a kind people who decided to fund a Youth Pastor in an Oregon Conference church - an answer to prayer that simply placed a need before the Provider-God.
3. A testimony that the many ministries of Portland Adventist Community Services are abundantly blessed because they are bathed in prayer.
4. A group of elders of a local Adventist church that meet every Monday morning to specifically pray for the ministries of their local Adventist school.
5. Prayer ministry leaders of various congregations who convened for a prayer summit.
6. Spontaneous prayer that took place during Executive Committee dialogue.

A 7.9 magnitude earthquake has devastated much of Nepal, leaving thousands dead, injured, and missing. Search and rescue teams have yet to reach remote regions and with strong aftershocks still shaking the country, more destruction is likely. Please pray! Go to www.ADRA.org for more information.

Sometimes people tell me they wish they could see more answers to prayer - answers that indisputably reflect the intervention of God. Does the God of Elijah still live? Does He still respond to the prayers of His people? Absolutely! And when He shows Himself strong it thrills us with new faith. Just this morning Pastor Jim Moon, prayer coordinator for the Rocky Mountain Conference, called to tell me about a huge answer to prayer involving a teacher at our Seminary. I think the story will inspire you too.
|Dr. Kenley Hall (pictured left) has served as Project Coach at the Seminary for the DMin program, then recently transitioned to the position of Associate Professor in the Christian Ministry Department.
About three weeks ago, on the final day of the extension class he was teaching in Maryland, his students surprised him and said they had a very special gift for him. An auto-immune condition, Guillian Barre Syndrome, had left Dr. Hall with paralysis in his legs. The disease destroys the myelin sheath around the nerves throughout the body. Working with a Physical Therapist he had regained some muscle strength in his thighs, but he had no use of his lower legs or feet. Using braces he was able to move about somewhat but he was mostly confined to a wheelchair.
Dr. Hall was surprised when his students moved to the front of the classroom, gathered around him and said they wanted to give him a gift--the gift of prayer. Lisa Green, a ministerial student from Jamaica, revealed that she had been praying and fasting for four days that God would restore the use of his legs so he could be even more effective in his ministry.
As Lisa and the others prayed, Dr. Hall began to feel a strange sensation in his feet, almost like an electrical current. He began to move his toes inside his shoes - for the first time in months. Startled, Dr. Hall said to the students, "Feel my shoes; I think my toes are moving!" The class members excitedly agreed.
Was the paralysis gone? It didn't appear so. A couple of the students helped him back to his hotel room. When he arrived he pulled off his braces, stood up - and started walking! That was two weeks ago; he hasn't stopped. The next Sabbath, with his Physical Therapist at his side, he stood and told the congregation of the miracle. The PT volunteered that in 18 years he had never seen a miracle like this!
I spoke with Lisa Green this morning. She is convinced that the God of Elijah is alive today and loves to respond to the prayers of His children.
