Do you have faith to believe in Jesus' healing touch?

Matthew 4:23-25 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, those having seizures, and paralytics, and he healed them. And great crowds followed him from Galilee and the Decapolis, and from Jerusalem and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.

Chaplain Matthew Barnes is blessed to have an incredible Christian heritage. Growing up in a pastor’s family, he was taught the importance of ministering to others. Matthew’s father is the pastor of Hope Baptist Church in Sunman, Indiana, and Matthew is a missionary sent out of HBC. Matthew worked for several years bi-vocationally with a desire to go into full-time ministry. In the fall of 2004, after listening to a sermon on praying for political leaders, God placed a burden on Matthew's heart to begin a ministry in the Indiana Statehouse. A short time later, he founded Public Servants' Prayer. God has provided Matthew with incredible opportunities to lead Bible Studies, Chapel Services, Annual Statehouse Prayer Services, Prayer Breakfasts, and Pastors’ Statehouse Days. These events, combined with faithful interaction within the capitol community, have opened many doors for sharing the Good News and testimonies of God’s faithfulnes.
