When I was a sophomore in high school, I had a lot of
problems with severe migraines behind my right eye & the
pressure from them would make my eye completely swell
shut. I also suffered from severe involuntary movements
that can lead to seizures. The doctors could never tell me
what was wrong. Well, my junior year I went to my first
college weekend @ Oral Roberts University & one
night I was “twitching” pretty bad and a girl that lived
down the hall came in & prayed with me. She
asked if it would be ok if she prayed
with me & it was one of the first
times that anyone had ever asked
to pray with me about this problem.
Since that night, I went 2 years without
involuntary movements. Today, they come
& go, but aren’t nearly as bad as they
used to be. God truly is my healer & I
know that He is yours.

It’s an ironic twist to the usual story, where a worship leader creates a record and then builds an audience. In
Carlos Whittaker’s case, the audience he built from his blog, Ragamuffin Soul (http://www.ragamuffinsoul.

“You have this fan base without any songs. You have fans without any music.”
