Have you ever simply felt moved by compassion to pray for someone? (Photo by Diana Simumpande on Unsplash)

Let me share an amazing email I received this past week. It relates to a truth discussed in my most recent book.

I have been given permission to post this wonderful testimony with the names omitted.

This person wrote in her email to me:

In the book Unleashing Healing Power Through Spirit-Born Emotions, you write that "Observation causes transformation," which is so fascinating to me. It explains a deep mystery that I had experienced. I was in prayer with the Lord and started to pray for my daughter who has struggles with mental illnesses including depression.

This particular day, I saw her in my prayer in her room but there was thick white webbing stuff that almost went to the ceiling. I asked the Lord what this was, and as I got closer I could see my daughter inside it. This alarmed me, and again I said, "Lord, what is this?" He let me see her close up, and she was just lying there; it seemed like she was lifeless. Again, I asked Him, "What's wrong?" He picked up her arm, and it was limp. I knew this was very wrong, and I was afraid.

I asked Jesus, "What do we do?" and He led me to roar at that white stuff. I roared [something taught in Chapter 4 of the book], clawed and tore it away from her, and then Jesus quickly came, picked her up and did mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on her. This whole vision lasted about a day. Every time I could go back to it (because I was at work), I would see it continuing.

By the way, I did text my daughter, and I didn't get an answer. This was the normal time for her to be in her classes, so I didn't really know what to do. I thought about calling the college to see if she was OK but was going to see her after her last class. Throughout the day, I saw this vision progress. Color started to come back into my daughter as Jesus continue to do mouth-to-mouth.

The color went all the way down to her feet and there were little rainbows all over her. Jesus sat her up, and she could sit on her own so I knew she was OK, but her eyes still had white stuff on them. I asked Jesus if He could heal her eyes, and He touched them with His thumbs and held them there until the white stuff came off. Now she was sitting up, and He was holding her and talking to her, and I felt a lot better.

Finally, my daughter texted me back and she said she's fine, nothing's going on, she's OK. I called her that evening, and she sounded fine but very busy. I was very puzzled about why I had this vision and experience. It wasn't until a couple of months later that my daughter told me she tried to kill herself that day. She said she took a lot of pills but, somehow, she woke up.

This was what happened that day, causing those waves to collapse and bring a miracle from the spiritual world with Jesus to my daughter. I'm so thankful for this small section in the book. This explains it, and it certainly changes my prayers now. I always want to see Jesus in my prayers!

Note from Mark Virkler: The key ingredients which released this wonderful miracle included:

—Receiving an extended, day-long vision (John 5:19, 20, 30).

—Being moved by compassion (Matt. 14:14).

—Praying into the vision as she watched it unfold over the entire day.

Mark Virkler, Ph.D., has authored more than 50 books in the areas of hearing God's voice and spiritual growth. He is the founder of Communion With God Ministries (cwgministries.org) and Christian Leadership University (cluonline.com), where the voice of God is at the center of every learning experience.
