Nightly, I do a bible study, inclusive of reading the gospels. That night the gospel spoke to me about her. I opened the pages of Luke and it spoke to me. In chapter 13, v.10-17 it spoke to me about her. There we find Jesus teaching in a synagogue on the sabbath. v. 11-13 reads "And a woman was there who for eighteen years had been crippled by a spirit; she was bent over, completely incapable of standing erect. When Jesus saw her, he called to her and said , 'Woman, you are set free of your infirmity.' He laid his hands on her, and she at once stood up straight and glorified God." The remainder of the section is a dispute between Jesus and those who think he should not heal on the sabbath, where he triumphs by saying she has been set free from bondage. I prayed for her.
Another day, while I waited for my morning bus for work and was feeding quarters into a newspaper vending machine, I saw her walking down the street. She was asking people for something, but I couldn't hear what she said. A couple people walked away from her. After I pulled my newspaper out of the machine, I stepped away from it towards her and said, "I'm sorry I couldn't here what you asked." She pushed forward a card in her hand and said, I want to sell my Mcdonalds gift card, because I need money. I said, "I'm sorry, I don't usually eat there", but then I gave her a dollar. Suddenly she rose nearly erect and said "Thank you" before resuming her posture. Heal.
