FROM PRAYER REQUEST TO PRAISE REPORT!
By: Curt Atkinson
I am Curt Atkinson and I live in Florida. I am 70 years old and live alone. I had everything wrong with me. Between my back, my legs, and hips I just couldn't get up and go nor sit up too long, but I tried as best as I could. I was in terrible physical shape and a little mental I hate to admit, and I needed prayer so bad. I've had two heart attacks and two strokes and diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. 911 have picked me up four times since April of '98. It seemed like I was just going back and forth to the hospital.
The doctor cut a nerve in my left leg during the last catheterization (they just did 30 of them), and he thought they might have hit (unintentionally of course) a nerve that set an excruciating pain off in that leg. Well, that's exactly what happened, and the pain was so severe I couldn't walk and my leg was beginning to shrivel up. My left leg just hurt so bad, I could hardly sleep at night.
I sent out a SOS to ALL my Christian friends (prayer groups on computer) and I know hundreds were praying for me. I arose one morning without a pain -- without assistance (except from Jesus). I walked without the aid of a cane, walker, or anything. With Jesus on each side of me, I went into the bathroom, then down the hall, and to the kitchen and fixed my own breakfast without any pain at all. I AM SHOUTING VICTORY!!
I have had so much happen but God is so good to me. He is here with me right now -- He never leaves me. I do get down at times like everyone else I guess, but I am so happy and so relieved. Satan had tried to rob me of my ministry on the computer in several ways. I was reaching too many people. I make copies of all the Christian items I receive and send them to folks I think that it might help. I know why Satan has caused so much to happen to me -- this computer has brought me so much closer to God's children. Satan is mad because he sees we are all getting together for we know Jesus is soon returning. He (Satan) is doing everything he can to stop me because I was printing everything spiritual that was of God and sending it out to others here and there and everywhere. I was handing it out here in Florida and Satan just doesn't want that to be. I believe it has touched so many that he is getting worried. Ha!!! But we know who is gonna win, don't we?!? Jesus our soon coming King -- Praise His precious name!
So far through my computer ministry, a man I grew up with, his daughter, her two small children, her husband (who was Catholic and didn't go to Church) and her mom and dad and brother are now coming to Church because of my persistent letters to her. Now my Pastor tells me that her dad has signed up to go to Promise Keepers this next time around. I am so happy - I have been praying so long for them!
I could really tell you some things in my 70 years how God has worked with and on me. I used to be an alcoholic and hooked on prescription drugs and committed adultery and everything else I
could get into. But a dear old mother staying on her knees and the church I am in now really prayed me through and PRAISE GOD, in July 1974 Jesus baptized me in His Holy Spirit and I now belong completely to Him - Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!!! I shall never forget when that happened; Jesus spoke to me, not audibly, but in my Spirit and He said, "Set your affections on things above and not on things of this earth for you are dead and Christ lives within you!!! (Colossians 3:2) My life has been so different. I now have holy boldness and tell everyone about Jesus.
I Praise God because He has never let me down - Sometimes I feel that way but He always comes to my aid. O PRAISE HIS NAME! I have been going about ever since that morning and none of the leg and back pain I was having has come back. I just know I am healed!
"LOVING GOD, THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HEALING YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED IN MY LIFE. HELP ME TO SHARE THIS GOOD NEWS WITH OTHERS SO THEY MAY BE HEALED TOO. AMEN."
I would like to quote this scripture from the upper room for today and it is so appropriate:
ISAIAH 40-31 [Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary]
God Bless you for reading my answer to prayer!
PLEASE HELP SHARE THE BEST NEWS GOD HAS FOR EVERY PERSON!
"And this gospel of the
died for sinners] shall be preached in all the world for a witness
unto all nations; and then shall the end come."
(Quote from Jesus Himself: Matthew 24:14).
