 ….and some people were actually over praying for her, and had her praying in a corner, and it wasn’t just about anybody. It was some of our top leaders in that region of the country.

Can you give a personal example of battling spiritual warfare?+

I can remember one lady, sitting close to the front, worshiping the Lord.  Everyone was worshiping the Lord in service, and sometimes Pentecostal-Charismatics get loud.

Well she got loud.  Her hands were raised….

but something didn’t feel right…. and sure enough, after service one nite, I was praying with different ones down by the altar.  I had already felt a call to ministry….

and some people were actually over praying for her, and had her praying in a corner.

It wasn’t just anybody.  It was some of our top leaders in that region of the country, and they had cleared everyone else out.

By the time I got up from my prayer time, praying for people, and then praying on my own….

I realized what was going on.  They were casting a devil out of this person, some sort of spirit.  I joined with them, but I didn’t feel like joining with the affects of praying and commanding.

The Lord just led me to a particular Scripture.  I just asked if I could join so I would be under the authority of the person that was leading.  I asked if I could do this particular thing that I felt led to do, to read a portion of Scripture….

and I just began reading it over and over again.  It began to change things a little.  There was a point where I did speak and there was silence after that for awhile.

However, there was a lot of noise….

but that nite that young lady was delivered.



+It’s all personal, and it’s all not…. 

I do not know the young lady in this piece at all, and never was around her anytime outside of the sanctuary.  However, in my other life as a marriage and family therapist intern, I am cross-trained.  I usually keep the relationship between the client and the therapist at bay, and that’s the way I usually conduct a class as well.  I seldom self-disclose, so writing/talking about an experience is sometimes difficult….

However, the old questions keep resurfacing over and over.  I feel like I’m teaching the same class, answering the same old questions….

I’ve been a badge-carrying minister since 1993, although this incident precedes that time.  I may have just been an independent thinker under a Christian authority over the whole west coast.
