His name is David D'Louhy and he runs the blog "Chronicles of a Healing Revivalist"
I've been reading his blog for quite awhile, and enjoyed it. He functions in ways I just can't imagine functioning. He regularly plans trips by himself, and with groups to find what he calls "legal targets" those are people with an obvious need of healing. Maybe they're limping, wearing a brace, or a hearing aide things like that. Then he approaches them to pray for them. It's also something he just incorporates into his regular tasks as well.
If I saw someone with a runny nose, I'd offer them a kleenex. If I knew they had a headache, I'd offer them a tylenol. If I saw they dropped their purse, I'd pick it up. Maybe you'd do the same. But would I be willing to stop and pray for a lady carrying an oxygen tank around the store with her?
It goes back to what Mark at Made To Praise Him, and I were saying recently about our lights. I don't want to hide my light. If I saw someone in literal darkness, I'd find a flashlight, a candle, anything to be able to help them see better. I wonder if the true problem is that we're just not convinced enough ourselves?
Do we have to literally see hell before we're willing to risk embarrassment and possible offense in a desperate attempt to win these souls?
On my Salvation Watch post, I asked for a name of someone you wanted me to pray for their salvation and I got 1 name. And that one name came from someone that has never commented before. I had 20 visits to this blog on that day. Some of those visits were repeat, but if even 10 separate people touched my blog that day, that means 9 people chose to not leave a name.
Without drawing ANY other conclusions as to why someone wouldn't leave a name I can simply draw this one. When 10 people were asked who they'd like to see saved, 9 had no response.
I can't guarantee that all 10 visitors were saved themselves, so let's say only half my visitors were actually Christians themselves.
When 5 Christians were asked who they'd like to see saved, 4 had no response.
What do you think about that?
I'm convicting myself with this post, because, sitting here considering it I realized that our Sunday School class asks for prayer requests each week and I've never mentioned Lisa's name.
That's going to change.
