A 15-year-old boy laid hands on his best friend to pray for him, and the Holy Spirit suddenly filled him with power!
It’s rare for teenagers nowadays to take their relationship with God seriously. Due to peer pressure, most of them are trapped in settling for less. Oftentimes they would rather have fun than make time for God. But this is not the case for the 15-year-old Landon Johnson and his 14-year-old best friend.
Teenage Boy Hungry For Jesus
In a video shared by SeekingWisdom Ministries, Landon and his best friend joined the adults in a gathering of believers. Then he laid hands on his best friend whom the caption described as someone who is “Hungry For JESUS!”
While laying his hands and closing his eyes, Landon genuinely prayed along with other believers who laid hands on his best friend as well. He told God, “He’s been hungry for so long. And he’s so on fire for You, Lord. I ask You, just fill Him with Your Spirit, Lord. Open his heart to be more like You..”
Holy Spirit Moves!
Shortly after, he prayed while in tears. He thanked God, believing that the Spirit of God would touch his best friend. Then indeed, God showed up! The Holy Spirit filled Landon’s best friend. The best friend started to sob until he lifted both of his hands up for God.
After that encounter with God, Landon himself baptized his best friend in the water. He baptized him in the swimming pool, in the same place where they have gathered.
When asked how he felt after the baptism, the best friend said he felt like “a whole new person.”
Colton, the man who took the video quoted 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
Now, this is childlike faith!
