We prayed recently for demonic deliverance for a young person at one of our fellowship churches. What happened next was indeed supernatural.
Dear friends, I (Tammy) want to share with you an experience I had recently at an Assemblies of God church in Northeast Thailand that was truly powerful and moving.
During our Sunday morning service, we prayed for a young person suffering from an evil spirit. I'll refer to this person as Yang*. Yang's head and mind had been ringing with voices for years, and demonic forces would shake Yang's head violently, and Yang would make loud noises to try to stop the voices.
As the service concluded, my friend Pastor Jan and I offered to pray for anyone who needed it. Yang was the first to come forward. I anointed Yang's head with oil, and we started praying in Jesus's name for whatever was inside Yang to leave. Yang's head and arms shook, and Yang shouted.
I encouraged Yang to repeat the phrase, "I'm a child of the one true God." After about 30 minutes of intensive prayer, Yang fell to the ground, coughing up a lot of stuff. Then, after 15 minutes of additional prayer, Yang got up and was once again seated among the congregation, looking much calmer.
Later in the service, we offered the gift of tongues to all who wanted it. Yang was the first to come forward. Yang's lips were tight together, and it looked as if something was trying to stop them from speaking. After much prayer, Yang began to whisper, and the church pastor encouraged Yang to speak louder. Suddenly, we heard it: Yang was speaking in tongues. We saw a change in Yang's face; it was pure joy. This was the first time I had ever seen Yang smile.
Yang shared about an aunt who is a believer and speaks in tongues. The aunt had previously told Yang that the gift of tongues would change Yang for the better. The experience was truly amazing. We could feel the power of God working through us as we prayed for Yang and we could see the transformation in Yang's life.
I hope this report gives you a glimpse into the incredible things that can happen in Northeast Thailand. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
