In this article I share some miraculous testimonies stemming from children. All I can say is that I was there and witnessed the healings. These happened at different times and in different places. Also, one time many years ago in a church in Hawaii, I had the children pray for a boy who was about eight years old but looked about five. Apparently, his digestive system was completely messed up and he wasn't growing normally. We had no knowledge at the time whether there was any change in his condition. A couple of years ago, I went back to Hawaii and a woman mentioned to me about the boy who was prayed for at her church. She said he was healed when the kids prayed and was now 18 and is over six feet tall and perfectly healthy. So there are lots of miracles I never get to hear about – or only years later.
There's a New Breed Coming
Here is some good news: God is bringing forth children and youth pastors who are making a radical change as to where our children fit into the Body of Christ. Many churches are no longer being satisfied with the past revelation, or lack of it, for their children. They are asking for apostolic fathers and grandfathers to bring a new concept to their Church Body. Senior Pastors are repenting publicly for failing to see the spiritual potential of the children and youth in their churches. They are asking the youngsters for forgiveness.
Families are coming alive and seeing the importance of their role in activating their children for God's purposes. They are now seeing them as arrows in the hands of a warrior. Those that may not be involved in church ministry, in their adult years will become arrows for God in the public market place. God will replace the ungodly with the godly.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord. The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with their enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5
Children are becoming excited about the Lord and being involved in the Church. Many are now being taken out of the toy box of children's church and having opportunities to minister alongside the adults.
Worship leaders, prayer and prophetic teams are including the children and youth. Healing meetings are including children and teens to pray for the sick – with amazing results. For many years, I have had the privilege of witnessing children and youth minister in the power of the Spirit to adults in the churches and conferences where I have preached.
Here below are just a few following testimonies of children and youth being used by the Lord.
Children Used By the Lord
When I was preaching to the children at a Kenneth Copeland Convention in the U.K., eight-year-old Zoe, after being filled with the Spirit, came out of the meeting and prayed for a man in a wheelchair. The result of her prayers brought that man out of the wheelchair after being crippled for six years.
In a conference where I was preaching, a 10-year-old boy said the Lord spoke to him and told him to preach to all the kids in his neighborhood, his town, his school, and when he is older He will send him to be a missionary. He came back to another conference I was speaking at two years later and his parents said that he had led over one hundred children to the Lord.
In a crusade I was holding in Surinam, South America, with thirty churches, six to seven hundred children and youth prayed for the pastors and the thousands of people who needed prayer. A woman who had a stroke which left her dumb and paralyzed began walking and talking as the children and youth prayed for her.
In our "Young Mighty Warriors Conferences," many youngsters are being equipped and seeing miracles as they pray for people. Hundreds of people have now been healed from degenerative discs, fractured bones, inflamed arthritic joints, severe back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, blindness, deafness, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. And the beauty is that I have not had to pray for the sick. Instead of me having to pray for hundreds of people, I can just pray for forty or fifty kids and then release them to pray. It's powerful.
Who else to use but kids and youth to show that God will take the foolish things to confound the wise, and the weakest things to confound the mighty (see 1 Corinthians 1:26-29; also see Ephesians 4:15-16 and Colossians 2:18).
Many churches children's groups have become excited and on fire after my weekend with them. They have gone out into their schools and neighborhoods and evangelized other youngsters, resulting in large numbers being born again and added to their churches.
Bo Daniel preached his first sermon when he was seven, and went into full-time ministry when he was nine. Four years ago, he celebrated fifty years of ministry.
When I was preaching at the Dome Church in Durban, South Africa two years ago, senior Pastor Fred Roberts told me that six months before I came to preach, a five-year-old boy preached for forty five minutes under to anointing to their congregation of five thousand.
A 15-year-old boy did not want to attend the meetings I was speaking at and stayed in the car. His mother tried to persuade him to come into the meeting, but he said he did not believe in God and wanted to be a Buddhist like his father. Eventually he came in. The next day he attended my seminar. Sunday morning he heard me preach again, and in the Sunday evening meeting he was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost.
How are your kids and grand kids doing? How's their church doing? Don't give up on them.
