Michael Brown on How About Some Good News?

It’s easy to focus on what is wrong right now, since a whole lot really is wrong. First and foremost, people are dying at alarming rates, and the worst could still be ahead. Yet God is not sitting idly on the sidelines, watching and hoping. He is at work, as He always is, showing mercy and granting help. So, allow me to give you some good news in the midst of the storm.

Last Wednesday night, March 18, I met with nine of our online ministry school students via Zoom. One of them, around 70 years old herself, asked for prayer for her husband. (We’ll call her Miriam and him Bob.)

He is 73 years old. He had three previous co-morbidities, including having his respiratory system messed up because of being a cop in Manhattan on 9/11. And he had come down with COVID-19. This was serious business.

As Miriam described it, Bob “felt pretty bad for a few days with chills, fever, muscle aches and basically no energy.”

So we prayed for him as group, praying for Miriam as well, as they lived in a part of New York that had become a stronghold of the virus.

Yet nothing changed immediately, and Miriam herself was experiencing some symptoms as well. So her pastor, an old friend of mine, prayed for her over the phone.

She describes what happened next: “I felt something lift off my face, and I felt better right away. All praise to the Lord Jesus!”

That was the first immediate answer to prayer. But there was one more to come.

Miriam wrote, “The next day, my husband Bill was 100% better. We are rejoicing and are most grateful to Jesus for His mercy toward us. We are also so grateful for you and the others who prayed for us!”

This is really good news.
