The chilling sight I saw will be frozen like a photograph in the recesses of my memory till the day I die! Six or eight strong men could scarcely restrain a small five foot plus woman. When she saw Jan and me approaching, she broke all restraints, turned her head nearly all the way backwards and in a guttural male voice said, "I Hate You!" Thank GOD, by then I had learned some of the secrets of spiritual warfare. I said, "Satan, I hate you, too, and command you to loose this woman, in the NAME OF JESUS!" For several hours we literally wrestled with evil spirits as we and many of our prayer partners will remember.  Many evil spirits came screaming out of this tiny woman who, we learned later, came from a long line of Buddhist healers.

After starting a new diet I altered my drive to work to avoid passing my favorite bakery.

I felt this was no accident, so I prayed: "Lord, it's up to you....if you want me to have any of those delicious goodies, create a parking place for me directly in front of the bakery." And sure enough, He answered my prayer: on the eighth time around the block there it was!
