We were on the roadside this morning and afterward felt we were to take a drive and God would light up more set-up spots. We found two: one at the intersection of Hwy 24 and SR67, just outside of Divide, SR67 leading to Cripple Creek and Hwy 24 leading to Florissant and beyond. It’s a church parking lot which has great visibility from all 4 sides. Emil has a call in to the pastor to ask him about it. Please pray he calls and approves us! The second one is on SR67, a huge pull-out with an old small abandoned building at one end which has a cross on top! It is a perfect place to set up when there are special events in Cripple Creek, such as when Colorado’s largest procession of motorcycles takes that route to the annual Salute to American Veterans Rally August 17th.
A woman stopped for prayer for health issues. Although she is a Christian, she had been trying visualization techniques etc but after many years, had not received relief. We told her healing comes from Jesus plus nothing! She said she agreed, “but…” We explained that every “but” is a doubt coming from unbelief. We continued to talk and she began to catch herself saying, “yes, but…” Suddenly, she got it! We prayed and she came out of agreement with the spirits of fear, doubt and unbelief, and the accusing spirit. We cast them out and filled the places they had been with the Holy Spirit. She looked completely different and felt a huge weight lift off. We then prayed for her health issues. She stopped by the next day so that we could praise God with her for all the healing she was experiencing!
Today the Lord told us to be sure to be on the roadside at 1pm sharp! We got there a couple of minutes in advance and He said, “Get the banner up or you’ll miss it!” We hurried and as we attached the last corner of the banner, a van pulled up and a young woman jumped out and said, “Let me help you!” She said, “I was looking for you! I saw you out here the other day and today I was back up here making deliveries when I saw you setting up and I had to pull in! I was so happy to see you!” God ministered to her in great detail. She wound up accepting the Lord, receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and as she got up to leave, she noticed 2 other cars had pulled in! She was so intent on hearing what God was saying to her that she hadn’t noticed when Karen got up quietly to go over to pray for 3 other people. She put her hand over her heart and said, “What you do is so important, to be willing to sit out here for a living, waiting for people like me and these other people, just to love us and pray for us! I can’t tell you how much it means that you were here for me. I just want you to know that you just changed the rest of my day and not just that, you changed my life!”
That’s what the woman said as she got out of her car, pointing to our sign, and laughing! We talked for a long time, exchanging stories about the Lord and His goodness! When we prayed for her, Emil saw God’s golden bowls full of of rose petals and every rose petal was anointed with one of her tears. She began to cry as she quietly repeated, “Rose petals!” The bowls tipped and were falling back to her. The Lord said, “I collect all your tears, every tear you’ve ever cried. Every prayer you thought I never heard and every prayer you thought I never answered, I’m sending back to you right now.” It turned out, she had just asked Him about that the night before and asked Him to show her that He heard her prayers. She then showed us on her phone a picture her daughter had sent her which had made her cry. It was a picture of a girl walking out of a brightly lit cave up to her knees in rose petals that had fallen from the ceiling of the cave. God knows what is meaningful to each person who stops on the roadside!
We set up on a roadside pull-out just west of Florissant on Hwy 24 for the first time 2 days ago. We prayed with a woman who was steeped in New Age and universalism. Her extreme reaction when she heard the words of the Lord to her was like nothing we had ever seen before, and we know she experienced HIs presence like nothing she had ever experienced before! At the food pantry in Manitou Springs yesterday, Emil got to pray with 3 people and spoke at length with one young guy about Jesus. Today we were back on the roadside when a veteran pulled in. An awesome guy who loves the Lord, he was filled with the word of God and today got filled with the Holy Spirit as well, and his back was completely healed!
We’ve prayed for 8 people and talked to several others since Emil’s last day at work on May 2nd, many from wearing our Free Prayer shirts. But yesterday we received the go-ahead from the sheriff’s department that we can set up on any public roadside that’s safe for us and traffic. Thank You, Lord! Monday we found several spots so now we just start asking daily, “What road and what time, Lord?” We’re excited!
We were asked by a guy at our church if we would do a Dream Interpretation booth with him at a New Age gathering coming up. We will tell people it is done through the power of the Holy Spirit. Details to come. Reaching those who are searching for the One they don’t know they are searching for. We’re looking to make Jesus famous again in the USA.
We are excited to announce that we will be back doing Roadside Free Prayer FULL TIME in 2 weeks! The Lord told us it is time and that the time is urgent. The Lord spoke clearly to Emil, “It’s time to quit your job and go full time back to doing Free Prayer!” And we had several confirmations. So yesterday, he gave his 2 week notice at work. May 2nd will be his last day. We have started a fundraising campaign to build up our support base which decreased dramatically with our move from Iowa to Colorado last year. If you would like to partner with us financially, there is a Donate button on the Fundraising Meter page, or you may contact us directly to become a monthly supporter on our Contact Us page!
When Emil was getting his hair cut, every time he looked in the mirror he saw the next man waiting and God began to give Emil words about him. After praying for an opening, the woman cutting his hair began telling the man about the first time she cut Emil’s hair and the Lord gave him words for him about her life and prophesied over her. The man said to Emil, “Hey, if God tells you anything about me, please tell me! I’ve never gotten a word like that!” Pretty good opening, right? So Emil told the man that God said he had a strong gift but he is constantly discouraged by “friends.” God told him to stay away from those friends and make a commitment to do the things God is calling him to do! After receiving much more love and encouragement from God, the man joyfully embraced his calling. When Emil anointed him, he laughed and cried and said, “I’m ready! I’m not going to run any more.” For the full story in our hot-off-the-press newsletter, go to our “Contact Us” page.
We had an amazing time in Ponca, Nebraska Saturday and Sunday! We had eight people stop and saw two people get backs and knees miraculously healed! One lady had been in a serious car accident and she left with absolutely no pain for the first time in years! One lady who had been abused as a child left completely free! All the voices in her head were gone! A pastor from a church in Vermilion South Dakota joined us and sat out and prayed and now he wants us to come do this in South Dakota. Thank you Lord!
