The devil goes to Hospitals! by Elaine Davenport (Tuesday, October 2, 2007)

The devil goes to Hospitals!   Plead the Blood of Jesus!

Ephesians 6:12 (King James Version)

King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

*This is a true story; I lived it out. The devil tried to kill my friend. He tried to destroy my faith which is the essence of me. He starts fires all over the place. In the realm of the natural, prayer warriors backed by God put them out.

* Prayer Warriors work the front lines. We see everything that goes on. We encounter danger regularly. There are new adventures and repeated adventures. It’s exciting! God ALWAYS shows up! Always…

It was a Saturday afternoon and I was just sort of being lazy. The telephone rang and I didn’t even want to answer it. It was my good friends friend with bad news. My friend was very very sick in the hospital. She’s a minister. I knew it was warfare. The old me would have said I’ll pray. Satan began to send thoughts saying: “It’s a bad time.” When I opened my mouth, I said: “I’m on my way.”

I went to the Hospital to Plead The Blood of Jesus for my Friend!

I was mission minded on the way down there. My gas tank “looked” like it was on empty but the gas gauge lever never moved. My spiritual tank was on full. I found a free spot in front of the hospital. I got inside to her room and I found it quite easily. My friend looked very bad. I was led to seal the scene with the Blood of Jesus. I did it. There were only three of us there. We prayed a powerful prayer. When we finished; the nurse approached us within ten minutes. There had been a change…

THINGS HAD GOTTEN WORSE…

Now I’ll be honest. This had never happened before. Satan began to send thoughts:

“You are so stupid!”

“You really messed up now!”

“That faith stuff doesn’t work!”

“She’s going to die!”

“Her husband is going to ban you from seeing her.”

“They’re going to say you killed her.”

“They are definitely going to call you a nut!”

EVERYTHING SATAN SAYS IS A LIE! HE’S THE AUTHOR OF LIES! WHY WOULD ANYONE BELIEVE HIM? I DIDN’T. THE MORE HE SAID; THE STRONGER I GOT! THIS WAS WARFARE!

THEN I HEARD A QUIET VOICE..

Only Believe.

IT WAS HARD..

It was hard for me to hear the nurse say that now my friend was not only in a coma, but that she had a heart attack and was experiencing kidney failure.

SIDE JOURNEY..

There’s a peace that comes over me as a Prayer Warrior. I get really quiet when something “bad” happens and the enemy attacks. A lot of faith people think if they get close to God nothing bad will happen to them. That’s not true. Something will happen, but God will make a way out.

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”—1 Corinthians 10:13.

The word temptation describes tests and trials that occur in our lives. This was a test and it was a trial.

I had planned to go pray over my friend and go home. Now, I was going to have to get before God and find out specifically what to do next.

I WENT HOME TO PRAY

When I got home, I immediately went into a private place to pray. I was led to get out my Scripture Keys Book by June Newman Davis and to pray Healing Scriptures around the clock for my friend until she was healed. I began to do it and I was very faithful with it. I was unable to see my friend because they allowed only her husband to see her. I continued to leave him messages telling him that I was reading Healing Scriptures for her. I also called and told her friend that as well. Honestly, I don’t know if they even realized how much prayer was being sent, but it didn’t matter. I went to see her one day and she looked so bad that my daughter and I were moved to tears.
SHE CAME OUT OF THE COMA AND HER KIDNEYS BEGAN TO FUNCTION…

In what can only be described as a miracle, everything changed! She came out of the coma and everything began to function normally. She faced months of rehabilitation. I received a message from her after she got out of the hospital that basically said, don’t come around for a while. It was okay, my job is that of a prayer warrior and not that of a people pleaser. I continued to pray for my friend. I’m a busy person, I am called in all directions, so to be released from visiting anyone doesn’t put a ripple in my schedule. Jesus took care of it.

ABOUT A MONTH AGO..

I had dinner with my friend. She’s in perfect health, in better shape than she ever was, happier, much more content and a lot more Spiritual. She just wrapped up her Master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling and has legitimately been very busy. It wasn’t personal that I had not seen her, it’s just life. God is faithful and if I’m ever called to go to seal a hospital scene with the Blood of Jesus…I will go! For a fact, I know that the devil wanted to kill my friend, but he’s under my feet! I’ll keep stomping! Praise God!
