Confident in the power of Christ
Hosni had grown up reading the Qur’an all his life but had recently noticed the prominence that Jesus is given. Being described as anointed by the Spirit of God somehow set Isa (Arabic for Jesus) apart. This concept fascinated Hosni. While alone in daily private prayer, Hosni began asking God to anoint him in the Spirit too. When his son became very ill with a high fever for three days, Hosni decided to step out in faith. He took his son into a side room and prayed over him. ‘Jesus, if you are the one I read about in the Qur’an and you are filled with a special Spirit from God, then I believe you are a special person and you can heal my son. So, I ask in Jesus name that you heal my son right now.’
When Hosni removed his hand – his son’s fever was completely gone.
