God uses miracles like matchsticks to ignite hearts with the Spirit of truth. He wants to spread quickly, like wildfire.
Extravagant gestures of love
Miracles are just God being Himself. He overflows delight, leaving trails of brilliance and crowds wondering what else He can do. Faith is just awareness of the marvels God is capable of, allowing ourselves to be lavished in extravagant gestures of love.
Laying on of the hands prayer is as natural as breathing
Luke 4:40 “While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He healed them.” Did You know Christians are called to practice laying on of the hands prayer? It’s a simple and beautiful way to bless […]
If we really have faith, we should expect miracles
Are you as fascinated with the miraculous healing power of God as I am? I can relate to the crowds, who gathered around Jesus when He walked the earth, seeking His healing touch. Years ago, when my infant son was diagnosed with kidney disease – I was drawn to Jesus for healing as well. When […]

Intergenerational healing prayer and the new Pixar movie Coco
I recently took my whole family to see the new Pixar movie Coco, which is based around the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead. We all loved it, kids ranging from ages 5-10 and adults alike. It’s about a little boy, who dreams of being a musician, but his family won’t allow it because the […]
Floodgates Prayer (for openness to receive more graces)
Heavenly Father, You are a roaring waterfall of infinite power and glory flowing into the world- I adore you, but I struggle to feel worthy of Your graces.
