I was 2 months old when a rash broke out behind my left ear. It was also the month my parents decided to leave Iowa and attend Elim Bible Institute in Lima, New York.

That rash was called eczema and it plagued me most of my life. My parents prayed and believed God would heal me.

As I grew, and even as an adult, I had many pray for me. When I still was not healed, I usually heard one of two things: 1) I didn’t have enough faith, or 2) there was sin in my life.

  1. I had enough faith to go for prayer every time it was offered. I was prayed for by Kathryn Kuhlman, Rex Humbard, Oral Roberts, & Bob Mumford, to name a few.
  2. What sin can a three-month old commit?

The disciples asked Jesus the same question.

John 9:2, “‘Rabbi,’ his disciples asked him, ‘why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?'” NLT

According to this theory, the blind man sinned before he was born! They were wrong. It wasn’t because of sin, but so the power of God could be seen in Him, verse 3.

Dear Lord,

I know the power of God will be seen in me.
