I pay attention to verses that talk about physical conditions because they can have some very real and literal interpretations. I came across this verse recently as part of reading all of Psalm 6.Verse 7 says, “My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies.”
I remembered that a woman had brought in her young son to have his eye prayed for during the one of our Healing Rooms sessions. He had come in with a diagnosis in one of his eyes for “Lazy Eye.” The team was happy to pray for him.
In the discussion, the mom shared that she and her husband were in the process of a divorce. This causes grief in any young child. She had also mentioned that her son had been prophesied over as having some special discernment giftings. A mother hears these things often before observing them in the natural. If the prophet was accurate, it stands to reason that the gift itself comes with certain spiritual enemies. Both these things were referenced in this scripture verse.
During the actual appointment, the team saw other pictures and referenced other verses, which seemed to be a comfort. The boy said his eye was seeing more clearly after receiving prayer. The mother was surprised at how comfortable he felt in the Healing Rooms. He had stayed to finish up a drawing he had started.
Meanwhile, I made a note to pray for the health of the kids of people I know going through a divorce. Asking God to bless children with health and energy is good thing.
