Woman Walks for First Time in 22 Years During Alabama Revival Meeting

A music minister long known for belting out powerful worship choruses from her wheelchair stood up and walked Friday for the first time in 22 years during a revival service led by former Brownsville Revival leader John Kilpatrick.

Delia Knox, a popular singer who pastors Living World Christian Center in Mobile, Ala., with her husband, Bishop Levy Knox, had been paralyzed since a car accident on Christmas Day 1987.

But a YouTube video shot during a revival service Friday night at the Mobile Convention Center shows Knox telling British evangelist Nathan Morris that she can feel his hands on her legs. As he and other ministers continue to pray for her, she suddenly stands up from her wheelchair and later walks across the platform as the crowd leaps and screams.

Knox's healing, which has received more than 28,000 hits since it was posted on YouTube Monday, is one of dozens of miracles Kilpatrick said have been reported since revival broke at his Mobile-area church, Church of His Presence, in late July.

The former pastor of Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, Fla., where a five-year revival began on Father's Day 1995, said the services in Mobile looked like they had the making "of another powerful revival."

"We have miracles taking place, we have souls being saved, the glory of God has moved back in like it did on Father's Day 1995," Kilpatrick said of what is now being called the Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival.

"Already things are happening quicker than they did even at Brownsville," he said in late July. "The word's spread. I think it has the potential to be a really powerful revival."

Weeks before Knox's healing, Kilpatrick noted that the signs, wonders and miracles were more numerous at the Bay of the Holy Spirit meetings than at Brownsville, with the blind seeing, the deaf hearing and people being healed as they watched the services online.
