Recently our neighbors had been very distant. We learned that they were experiencing extreme oppression and health issues with each of them being hospitalized over the past couple months. They were new believers but we felt that they were going back to their old ways of worshiping idols which could be causing the sickness and depression. We prayed continually for them while counseling them concerning the open doors of demonic influence they may be allowing into their lives, especially now that they are Christians. For the first time in a couple months, they came over to receive prayer for their brother who was extremely sick. We reminded them about the demonic influence of their idols that they might be allowing in their home. The following day they came over with completely renewed spirits and the oppression seemed to be completely lifted and their brother was fully healed! We could see that they were experiencing the joy of the Lord!
