Heal Me, Lord!

Do you ever wish God would use you to bring someone else closer to Him? You hear about divine appointments, or even others given a message from God to share with someone. Do you wonder why God isn't using you in the same way?

Often times, it takes being intentional and stepping out in boldness to share our faith. Then we can see God respond to our prayer by using us as He used Gulloo—a man in Asia:

Gulloo*, a worker for Cru® in Central Asia, silently prayed for the four people he was about to show "JESUS" to. He asked God to use this opportunity to draw them to Himself.

For almost a year, Cru leaders had taught Gulloo how to share the gospel using Jesus Film Project® tools and films. They had given him a digital tablet, which he used to show "JESUS" to the four non-believers.

From the start of the film, the group asked many questions, beginning with Adam and Eve and their banishment from Eden. One man, Elias, was sick and did not speak up until he saw the healing miracles Jesus performed.

"If I ask Him, will He heal me?" Elias asked Gulloo.

"Yes, He will heal you," Gulloo replied.

He further explained that Jesus is alive and is our Healer. Elias and the others were encouraged. Their curiosity soared, and they began asking questions as quickly as he could answer them.

After the showing, Elias asked Gulloo for a Bible! Gulloo was honored to give him one and continued to share more about Christ with him. God truly had answered his prayer.
