The Portland Sessions: Testimony
Mother’s Day 2012, I was seriously injured in my spine and had extensive nerve damage. After 2 surgeries, the doctors were unsure of the extent of the damage, and were sure all they could do was send me home with heavy medication and hope for the best. God said to refuse the medication and to take this time to learn how to rest and go deeper with Him.
I was unable to sit for over 4 months. I had to either be standing or flat on my back. I would walk throughout my house reading my Bible until I could no longer stand, and like flat on my back for hours at times, learning how to be loved by the Lord. (I am passionately in love with Jesus, and I have learned over this last year and through this process that He is also passionately in love with me.)
A friend came over a few times a week to help me care for my younger children and our home, and she bought me “Prophetic Soaking”. It touched my heart like nothing I’d ever heard. I listened to it from morning till night for 2 weeks straight and the Lord began healing my heart and my soul and my body from the inside out. I then began purchasing other Graham CD’s –first soaking, then everything else! His ministry--God has used his ministry to bring healing to me in ways I never even knew I needed!
One year later, the Lord has given me a new spine and the nerve damage is almost all healed. But more importantly He has given me a new heart--straight from the Father’s own Heart.
Thank you, Graham, for not only teaching the truth’s of God’s word, but also for sharing the love of His Heart for us so beautifully.
The Art of Thinking Brilliantly:
"This teaching changed my life, brought healing to very deep and old wounds I did not know were even there, and has continued to be a foundation building mindset. I hadn't listened to it for a year, when just last week the Lord told me to sit and listen. I was battling some major issues in my family, and hadn't realized how much my favor was being attacked until I got to number #6, We Cannot Contemplate [a Day without Favor], and the Lord just downloaded revelation, understanding, and I was completely delivered. I hadn't realized I was beginning to feel my old man take over, until God, thru this teaching revealed the extent of the attack. I shared what I had experienced with others, and found that this sense if inadequacy and overwelmdness is hitting a lot of believers right now. Can't encourage you enough to get this amazing teaching and if you are being hit with a sense of depression, gloom and inadequacy, know you are not alone, and DON'T BUY IN, RISE UP, REJOICE, and GET THIS TEACHING! Thanks Graham for the fight you made to get this 'payback' teaching and release it to the Body of Christ. Thank You!

Thank you for being a part of my sister-in-laws last days on earth. I had shared before that Janet Hughes of KY loved your teachings in her last month- weeks before she died. I had taken her a signed CD from the Aglow Conference held in Louisville, KY where you were a speaker. She was so taken that the CD teaching was signed. Little did I know just how important it was to her spirit. Thank you for doing that. She listened to it over and over until she would talk to me on the phone sharing your best comments. I gave her more from my teaching material from the conference because she only wanted more of your teachings. She couldn't get enough of the teaching. In her last week I had ordered some more for her since she was in bed most of the time and could listen or watch a DVD teaching. I assumed she died not knowing the teaching material had arrived. Her daughter told me after her funeral that she wanted me to take the DVD and CDs that her Mom so enjoyed. Her daughter said she turned on the CD and had her headphones comfortably on her after they arrived. Her spirit responded to your voice and teaching. Janet never heard of you before the first CDs were given to her. She liked your humor and accent that made learning of the Lord enjoyable as well as meaningful. In her quiet hours she would memorize things you said and share with others. It is amazing. She passed in January 2010. I thank God for you and your ministry that in this case ushered Janet to heaven. God bless you.–Pat Gentry
Graham's CD's have encouraged, strengthened, and helped me to grow in my relationship with Jesus. It can be difficult at times to believe differently than what is being taught in mainstream church. After being on staff at a church and being extremely burnt out, I have been listening to his CD's and taking the last 9 months to be refreshed and renewed in my relationship with the Lord.
Thank you so much for being faithful to teach the truth. My husband and I have been listening to several CD sets on love and it has refreshed and encouraged us tremendously over the last9 months. What you have taught on the deep love of Christ, God and the Holy Spirit towards us has confirmed in me what he has been teaching me personally. It is so hard at times within the church to believe this, when so many don't. To be able to rest in his love and acceptance is so freeing who we are in Christ.
Thank you for speaking the truth, there are many of us within the Church who are ready and hunger to hear these words that you speak. Thank you.–Deb Herring, Denver, CO
I continue to send thanks and blessings as I grow more and more through your teachings. Your CD's and soakings along with journals challenge and stretch me steadily. It's amazing how the Spirit keeps directing me to the sets I need and what I need to listen to at a particular time.–Mary Ann Moran, Wisconsin
After listening to Graham's teachings since July '09, this past week I stepped into a higher level of knowing who Christ is for me. It is absolutely beautiful. I know that Christ and the Holy Spirit were the ones that used Graham as the vessel by which they used to bring me into alignment with WHO Christ is for me. I thought I knew Christ but now I know that I know Him. I am learning to put on Christ and see His beauty, love, caring, gentleness, and kindness. I've been listening to Graham almost every day since last year and I absolutely love it, he is so clear and peaceful in the way he put things. Thank you so much!–A testimony from Virginia
I am sure you get a lot of these emails, more than you can probably read, but I wanted to thank you. You spoke at a conference in Oklahoma recently and although I was not able to attend I was able to hear the messages you brought through podcast. I have been listening to them on repeat. I know the timing of me getting a hold of this message is God. I have been going through hell for over a year and had pretty much lost hope. It didn't seem to matter what I did, I did not get the results that I wanted. I know it's because I was trying to accomplish everything on my own, and although I was praying and seeking God for answers and an end to my situation, I expected Him to do it the way I thought it should be done. I got frustrated with Him when things didn't turn out like I wanted, but looking back I can see that if they had I wouldn't have kept searching for Him in all of it and I wouldn't have grown and gotten rid of any of the junk in me.
Things that you said opened my eyes; I had never heard it put like that before, that I didn't have to change all that junk because it was part of me that was dead...I just needed to quit talking to the dead and giving it life. So that is what I have been working on. I think I have made more progress in the last 2 weeks or so than I have in the last year. I'm not where I want to be yet, fear still tries to suck me back in and looking at my situation I could "justify" why I have every right to be. But when it hits I put on your messages and start building myself up and get my eyes back on my Father who is more than able to handle all of it if I just let Him. I have had a joy and a sense of peace come on me that I haven't had in a very long time. I'm having to fight daily right now to keep it but it is getting easier to not give into the negativity and fear and to stay in praise and thanksgiving instead... I love that word now... instead.
You have taken vengeance on the enemy again, because your obedience to God my life is changing. I know this because I am not reacting to my situations the way I always have. I know that as big as the stuff that has come against me is that the promises and provisions that God has for me have to be huge!! And I am excited! My situation hasn't changed yet but I am and I am expecting that they will as I get into my identity. So thank you again, you were truly a Godsend!
