“Could you have a look at my tooth, please?” said a lady in one of the FGB meetings in Kent recently. “Do you do that sort of thing still?”
People have approached me about their teeth in all sorts of places. I was once in a grocery shop, and the man in front of me turned round and said, “You’re the dentist man, aren’t you?” and proceeded to remove upper and lower false teeth, with saliva dripping onto the floor. “They hurt me at the back. What do you think?” he asked.
“Get him out of here,” shouted the grocer, as his customers started to look sickly, and backed off.
On occasions I have been asked to pray for healing, where people have had toothache. Why should the Lord not heal them? Of course I will lay my hands on them and pray for them.
I was being interviewed on Radio Sunlight in Medway, and spoke of how the Lord had healed me of IBS, and how I had seen others healed. I offered to pray for people over the radio. “Place your hand on the area that is painful, or sick, or ill,” I told them. Then I prayed that the power of God would come upon them, and bring healing. Why not?
Are you sick? In pain? Toothache, even? I read in my Bible the words of Jesus, ‘These signs shall follow those who believe. They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover’, (Mark 16:18). So simple.
So if you want advice on teeth, or if you want prayer for teeth, or anything else, do let me know, and I will do what I can. And when I have done all I can, Jesus will do what I can’t.
