"The Gift Of Laying On Of Hands"

1 Timothy chapter 4 -14: Neglect not the gift that is in thee by prophecy, with the laying on of hands by presbytery.

1 Timothy chapter 4 - 15 : Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them: that they profiting may appear to all.

1 Timothy chapter 4 - 16 : Take heed unto thyself and unto the doctrine; continue them; for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee.

We are all blessed with gifts from the mercy and grace of God. I have always had the ability to talk to others and calm their fears, heartaches,and pain but I also had the ability to relieve or heal physical pain from their bodies by therapeutic hand massaging. I removed cricks,headaches and backaches, since I was in my teens. I didn 't realize my spiritual gift from God until I was given a dream of revelation that blessed me with the knowledge about my spiritual gift from God. In my dream I was lead to read the first and second books of Timothy, and this was m y revelation to my gifts and my ministry; I guess you could say this was my calling to be an inspired minister, when I was in Los Angele in 1982.

My gift of laying on of hands is a gift that I continue to us to help others, when ever I can. I always used prayer along with the hand massage therapy. it helps heal the problem. I can't speak for anyone else but for myself but I know if you don't use your God given gift, he will take it and give it to someone that will use it in his service. I can't speak for anyone esle, about gifts from God, but I can speak for myself and how I use my gifts to help others any time that I can. I love healing or giving a word of encouragement to anyone in need of uplifting. We all have gifts to use. I' m not sure everyone uses theirs, I just know it's to important not to use them. We glorify God each time we use the gifts that God has given us and bless someone at the same else at the time. Use each of your God given gifts to help someone in need today.

Can i be so bold as to ask for your prayer. I have a lower back problem that causes me a lot of pain, not all the time, but often. i believe in laying on of hands, but we,re far apart. I also believe in prayer across the miles.

Thank you.
