We are excited to announce that our very own Mark Marx has released his first book "Stepping into the Impossible: The Story of Healing on the Streets".
This book tells the story of how HOTS came to be, recounts many of the incredible testimonies of miraculous healing that have been recorded, and explains the HOTS model of healing prayer. It provides the perfect introduction to those wanting to know more about healing prayer and how they too can see God move powerfully through simple trust and obedience.

Below is an excerpt from the book to whet your appetite:
"It’s an awesome experience and privilege to kneel on the streets with Jesus, and even more so when there are miraculous signs and supernatural interventions. On one occasion on a chilly Saturday morning as we knelt to pray, we hadn’t been praying for long when the quietness was broken by a boisterous noise. As I looked up I saw a group of teenagers dressed in football gear. These boys formed a local football team who met each Saturday to play football, but disappointingly as they met together that morning they realised that so many of them were carrying injuries they couldn’t play.
One of the boys said to the rest of the team, “Get into your football gear and come with me, we’re playing football!” This boy had previously seen two of his friends healed in front of his eyes during HOTS. One of his friends had an abnormal bone growth below the knee so that it resembled a camel’s hump. He stood in shock as he watched the “hump” disappear from his friend’s leg. Eventually he also came for prayer and experienced healing, so he knew exactly where to bring his injured pals. As we stood to our feet the seats quickly filled with these injured footballers. Soon we were praying and every single one of those boys was healed on the spot. I just love the way God healed these kids so that they could go and enjoy their game of football.
The writer to the Hebrews says: “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross.” (Hebrews 12:2)
As we kneel we are coming again to the foot of the cross and fixing our eyes upon Jesus. Everything looks different from the perspective of the cross. It causes us to look outwards. It shows us a dying, hurting world in need of a Saviour and reminds us why Jesus came.
Jesus’ mission on earth was “to seek and to save what was lost” (Luke 19:10), and his Great Commission for the church is to continue this. Jesus’ gaze is always outwards and when we follow him, he leads us out, just as he said to his first disciples in Matthew 4:19: “Come follow me, and I will make you fishers of people.”
When we kneel again at the foot of the cross out on the streets, we gain the right perspective and we rise empowered."
