Miracle Monday: Healed by God

The summer of 2009, my in-laws took a mini vacation to South Florida. During this trip my healthy 80 year old father-in-law became deathly ill.  Papa couldn't eat anything and had severe abdominal pain. After shopping with his family, he went back to the motel room.  He became extremely cold and was losing consciousness. His wife called the ambulance and they rushed him to the hospital.  The hospital admitted him and put him in a special care unit.  Papa doesn't remember a lot of what happened at the hospital as he was in and out of consciousness.  When we went to see him we were shocked.  He face looked ashen and he looked like he was dying.  He was diagnosed with E coli which can be extremely fatal to the elderly.  Everyone thought that this could possibly be the end of Papa's journey.  That night, before we left, we started to pray for him.  We had just joined hands when a minister from our church assembly in Orlando, just "happened" to be in the neighborhood and came to pray for him also.  We all joined in prayer.  As we prayed the prayer of faith we could feel the presence of God fill the room.  The prayer of faith was prayed and instead of declining and possibly dying, like the doctors thought, Papa began to improve.  In a couple of days he was feeling better and released from the hospital.  This Memorial Day, Papa is still alive and thriving.  As a family, we are thankful for the miracle working power of God.

  1. Praise God for His healing powers for sure! Jen, this story has touched my soul and I've been thinking for a long time to have my own self anointed with oil and prayed for the areas in my brain that have been taken over by Multiple Sclerosis. Especially the mid-pons area that is totally covered in white matter lesions. Since I haven't found a church up here in Oregon yet I don't know who to ask to lay hands on me and pray for God to heal these horrible lesions that seem to multiply each time I go in for an MRI, and I feel the advancement of the disease taking it's toll in my brain. I need the Lord to lead me to the someone that can pray over me in faith, but in the meantime please have those you know that believe in the healing power of God say a prayer for me as I truly believe that the Lord can and will heal my "Central Nervous System" of this terrible disease. Thanks so much and thank you also for posting this wonderful story of faith in the healing power of God! (((hugs))) from ~ Bertie
