Luk 1:37 KJV For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Mar 9:23 KJV Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
I once had a bible instructor who shared this story with me. He had a doctor friend who received salvation and the baptism in the Holy Spirit at a Full Gospel Businessmen meeting. In his practice he was volunteering time at an institution that dealt with chronic mental cases. One particular case was a child that had autism. They had to keep his hands and head padded because he would attempt to hurt himself. There were several doctors on this case using different methods to treat this problem but none was working. The spirit filled doctor said that God began to speak to him about this child. He said that God told him to stop all natural attempts to deliver the child and just lay his hands on the child’s head and pray in the spirit when the child was in his care. The doctor obeyed God and in three weeks all the doctors began to see a change in the child’s behavior. They came together to compare notes to see what treatment each doctor was using. They concluded that all the natural methods had not produced any favorable results but this laying on of hands and prayer had made the difference. They encouraged this doctor to continue his prayer treatment and within months the child was totally healed of autism.
Years later I received a report that a high school friend of mine had a mental breakdown and was put in a mental institution. When I got the news, six weeks had past. My wife and I went to the institution and prayed for him, believing God would deliver. Three weeks later the report came back that he was still institutionalized. I will never forget this. It was on a Thursday and I was working on a job near the institution. I fasted lunch and told the Lord that after work, I would go to that mental institution, lay my hands on him and pray in the Spirit for one hour. After prayer I called his wife and told her what I had done. I told her that I had not seen any change in him but that I believed that God was working. Four days later he called me from home. His wife said that when she saw him that Thursday, his condition had changed and by Sunday he was completely healed.
One of the things that help your faith to grow is experiencing victories as you act on the Word of God. When David faced the giant in battle, he reflected back on his past victories with God. These ignited his faith to take this new challenge. The results we know from reading the bible was a greater victory. There is a principle involved here! Here is the principle. Faith in God will always produce favorable results when you act on His Word. Your faith grows stronger as you exercise it. Stronger faith enables you to win greater victories. Knowing this principle, I began to apply it to people who had suffered strokes and other brain or mental problems and received miraculous results. I share this with you because I believe that God is preparing you for future ministry in this area. Don’t forget, we’re all called to minister to the sick and afflicted. As I learned from my instructors, applied what I had learned with favorable results, so will you.
A man came for ministry who had suffered a stroke which paralyzed his left side from his head to his feet. I had prepared him to receive, by preaching faith in the God that heals and faith in the name of Jesus. He came forward ready to receive. I laid my hands on his head to release the creative power of the Holy Spirit. I then cast out the spirit of death that had lodged himself in the man’s brain, in the name of Jesus. I then commanded the blood clot to disappear and the damaged brain cells and circuits to be made whole in the name of Jesus. I told the brain to begin to function properly and to send the correct signals to the different parts of the body, in the name of Jesus. I finally commanded the paralysis to leave the man’s body. I did all this as a representative of Jesus under the unction and ability of the Holy Spirit! Everything I said happened then and there and the man began to move and do everything he could do before the stroke, proving he was healed.
Joh 14:13 BBE And whatever request you make in my name, that I will do, so that the Father may have glory in the Son.
Act 1:8 AMP But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

Let me say that it wasn’t my faith that healed the man. I played a part by knowing how to minister to him. I had faith in my prayers and faith in God but it was his faith that released God to move on his behalf. 90% of the stroke victims that I have ministered to this way are instantly healed, to God be the glory!! One lady who was paralyzed down her left side was instantly healed and got up, dropped her cane and started doing the twist, proving she was free from the paralysis. I used the same method of ministry to her as I did the stroke victim I mention above. No matter what kind of problem the person has, faith in God’ creative ability and knowing how to minister will always produce the desired results. Let me add this phrase to my last statement, “When all personal hindrances are removed!” The following is an example of what I mean. A professing Christian came for ministry. He had not heard the word of faith concerning God’s willingness and ability to heal. He was involved in open adultery and was a drunkard. On top of this he was living in a backslidden condition and seldom attended any church and yet he came wanting to be healed to continue to live the same lifestyle. One preacher ministered to him for approximately 20 minutes with no favorable results, then called for me. I told the man to repent and God would heal him. He didn’t and God didn’t. You may say, “Brother Spann, I know of sinners who have been healed of God.” You are right, but God has called His people to live a higher standard of life. There are things we can do to stop or permit the will of God for our lives.
Luk 12:48 KJV.......For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Hos 7:1 KJV When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of robbers spoileth without.

In a recent meeting a mother in faith brought her daughter forward in a wheelchair. The child, now 13 years of age was born with cerebral palsy. Her right eye would not move. It just sat in the lower left corner near her nose. To see out of that eye she had to move her entire head to get the eye to see what she wanted to see. In addition to the eyes, her ankles would roll outward when she tried to walk, causing her to fall. The doctors fitted her with special braces to keep the ankles straight and to support her weight when she walked but she had to use a walker along with the braces. We commanded a new brain into her head and commanded it to send the proper signals to the eyes so that they would track correctly and proper signals throughout the whole body causing the body to function the way God originally intended for it to function, in the name of Jesus. The Holy Spirit went to work on that little girl, fixed her brain, eyes, ankles and everything else that needed fixing. Her eyes started tracking properly, her ankles received strength and she got up out of that wheel chair and started walking without braces or walker. We have a video of that miracle for the unbeliever.
I believe that we hold the answer to the deliverance of millions who suffer from brain injuries and mental disorders. With the Word of God, the Name of Jesus and the Spirit of God, the possibilities are limitless!!
Eph 3:20 Murdock Now to him who is able, by his almighty power, to do for us even more than we ask or think, according to his power that worketh in us;
Eph 1:16-20 AMP I do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers. (17) [For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, (18) By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), (19) And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, (20) Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],
