Clayton (20 yrs)- I made my way over to a house, where a man was sitting on his porch reading. I approached him, introduced myself, and offered prayer. He asked for prayer for his family and for healing. he suffered from constant pain due to arthritis in both hands and was unable to straighten his hands or make a fist. I layed my hands on his, and prayed for healing. I prayed a total of three times and each time I asked "How do they feel?" He tried to move his hands and told me that the pain was getting better. I proceeded to explain to him about Jesus but he stopped me to say, "I don't feel any pain in my hands." He stretched out his hands and clenched them into fists. After witnessing his own healing, he was thoroughly open to what I had to tell him about the gospel and I was able to lead him in the prayer of salvation.
