Compassion For The Blind
A mother brought her 10-year-old daughter, Sarah, to our ministry for prayer one Sunday evening. Sarah started going blind when she was four years old. She was diagnosed as being legally blind. All she could see was light, like a fuzzy TV screen. There was a spot in the middle of the fuzziness that she could read if she put a paper up and spelled the words through a hole in it. This disability caused her to regress in her development and learning in school.
I asked Sarah what she wanted. She said, “I want to be able to see again.” I laid my hands on her eyes and prayed for the mercy of God to come and heal this little girl. After a few minutes, I took my hands off and asked her, “Can you see anything?” She said, “No, just the same.” I laid my hands on her eyes again and prayed, believing God would heal this child. After a few minutes, I took my hands off and said, “Sarah, do you see anything?” She said, “No, just the same.” Deep compassion was moving within my spirit for the healing of this blind child. I laid my hands on her eyes again and began to rebuke the blindness, crying out for God to heal her. During the middle of my prayer, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Okay, she’s healed.” I took my hands off her eyes, and I could see something had happened by the expression on her face. She walked over to a pew, picked up a program, and began to read. She broke out in a radiant smile!
She went to school Monday morning, and the teacher asked, “Sarah, where are your glasses?” Sarah looked at her and said, “I don’t need them anymore. Jesus healed me last night.” The teacher said, “No, I’ll call your mother. You need to get your glasses.” Sarah refused to get them. So, the teacher sent her to the school nurse for an eye test. The nurse gave her three different types of tests, and she passed each of them perfectly. The third test had some big words that she did not know yet, but her eyes tested at 20/20 each time.
The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous [the upright in heart]. Psalm146:8 AMP
 This is not her real name.
