Warts Be Gone

Kayla & Carl
My daughter, Kayla, for some reason has great faith for the removal of warts. In the past she has placed her fingers over friends' warts and they disappear by the next day. Recently, a friend of hers, Carl, has been visiting her and in passing mentioned warts he has unsuccessfully attempted to rid himself of. Kayla's interest piqued, of course, and she said, "I can remove those for you." He laughed. I was sitting nearby, so she said to me, "Dad, tell him." I said, "Carl, buddy, she's not joking. She's done it many times." He said, "I don't believe you." Kayla said, "That's OK, you don't have to. I'll show you." Such boldness! She got him to show her the warts. She put her fingers on them for a few seconds, looked down (I know she was saying something like, "Warts, leave!" but you cannot hear her say it. Then she looked up, smiled, and said, "Either they will be completely gone by tomorrow, or you'll be surprised at how small they've become. But, I promise you, they'll be gone soon!"

Next day. Carl is completely amazed... and a little humbled. His warts were significantly smaller and drier looking. Now he needs an explanation. My daughter explains, "It's Jesus, duh. We have authority to do these things." He said, "I still can't believe it."

That's OK, Carl, you don't have to. Kayla believed for you. A few days later they were completely gone just as she said.

This is the way we are to save the sick who oftentimes are hurting so bad or have been sick for so long that they doubt God will help them. They may even doubt God exists, or believe in a different god. However, their mere submission to your prayer for them is the only faith needed to get them healed and thus bring glory to our Living Loving Father.


  1. What an awesome story....God Bless Kayla for her amazing and unwavering faith. I wonder if it can be done online....I mean if I shared a story with Kayla, if she could have the same effect without even meeting me. Im going up against something pretty awful in the next week or so... :( I pray about it as much as I can but Im pretty sure God is fed up with me at this point. Im a 45 y/o single mom of 3. If Kayla is interested in hearing my story she can write to me at ginaindra@gmail.com. At any rate thanks again for an amazing story...God hss blessed this young woman with a wonderful gift!!!
    In Awe of Him,

  2. Hi Gina, I know God is indeed NOT fed up with you at all. Forgiveness is real. His patience with all of us is unrelenting. In the OT every time a sacrifice was brought for sin the scripture says, "and he shall be forgiven." Didn't matter the sin, the response was the same; "and he shall be forgiven." With our Better Sacrifice (Jesus), God's response is still the same. I will ask Kayla.
