12-Nov-2010 (Thu) - Low Iron

On Thursday, 11-Nov-2010, I took a regular business trip to Georgia. I go about every 2 weeks or so. It is about a 4 1/2 hour drive from my house one direction so it makes for a long day. Normally I'm by myself so I just listen to music, preaching, the Word and stuff. But this time a co-worker (Mike) went with me. It was really good to have someone to talk to for the long drive. We had a good time. While at the business in Georgia, I normally take the support technicians out for lunch and we discuss various technical issues and just generally have fun. But before we went, one of the tech operators (Betty) caught me & Mike and told us that she was having to take chlorophyll as recommended by her doctor to help her with "low iron."

Betty [see pic right] is a Catholic and I had prayed for her once before [see here] and her foot was healed instantly in her office. So, she said, "You need to put some healing hands on me!" She's such a sweetheart! So, since it was time to take the techs to lunch, I told her I wouldn't leave without do that very thing and we would just see what Jesus would do.

After lunch I talked with a lot of the techs about various issues we were seeing and finally got around to visiting Betty's office. I simply asked her about what was wrong and she filled in some details about how her condition made her very tired. I asked if I could lay hands on her and pray and, of course, she agreed. I believe it is very important to get a phrase from the person you are praying for as to what they call the malady and also get their permission. I think knowing what they call it makes a mental connection for them to the actual malady (i.e. they are thinking about it and are cooperating with you when you call it the same thing... we are in agreement). And then also getting their permission is the only requirement Jesus gave... the sick merely came to Him. They did not all have great faith... but merely mustard-seed-sized faith... which, by the way, is enough to move a mountain into the sea!

I very casually took her hands and prayed something like this, "Father, thank you for Betty and her faith in you. Thank you that Jesus said we could do His works. We know what You want for Betty because Jesus demonstrated it all the time that He wanted all the sick healed all the time. Thank You for providing healing for Betty. As a sons of God with the authority you have given us, I command low iron to depart out of Betty's body right now. Whatever is causing this low iron, I command you, in Jesus' Name to be healed, right now."

Again, please remember, the prayer itself has no special power. The words are not all that important; they are more for the person you are praying for, and for yourself to merely help focus on Jesus.

Then I merely waited for a few more seconds thanking Jesus for His faithfulness. All very quietly, all very casually. Then I looked up and I could see Betty was feeling something. So I asked, "What's going on, Betty?"

She sat up, started fanning her face, and replied, "Whew! It is hot in here!" Mike said, "It's not hot in here." I chuckled, "Betty, did you suddenly get hot all over?" She said, "Whew! Yes!" and she began to take off her jacket that she'd been wearing all day. It was very funny because she has heaters in her office too. She's normally cold. She kept fanning her smiling face. I said, "Very cool! That is a good sign the Lord has worked on you. Do you feel any different?" She said, "Yes! I'm burning up all over!" LOL!

We small-talked a bit more and she thanked me and hugged me and said, "Well, I'll let you know what the doctor says." I said, "Please do."

I think this was the first time (outside our office at home) Mike had seen this kind of thing too. He was pretty excited about it... especially after he found out Betty was Catholic. Mike jokingly said to me later, "You mean Jesus heals Catholics?!" Hahaha... I guess so! He'll even use a Protestant to do it! LOL!

Again, I love what Jesus DOESN'T care about... Praise Him!


  1. Hi Greg, may I ask you to pray for my knees through skype? My e-mail adress is I hope you can contact me through it when you are avaliable. Thx.

  2. Hi Aspi, I'm not on Skype very much at all, but I will certainly look for you on there. I believe Jesus will heal your knees. It belongs to you because of what Jesus has done.
