A Personal Story of Healing

One day after service, a lady walked up to me while I was talking and politely interrupted and asked if I could lay hands on her. I was a bit stunned by it because I had never had someone come up to me and ask me to lay hands on them. Prior to this day, I've had people ask me to pray for them, but never to lay hands on them. Well, this lady did. She said that the Lord had revealed to her that she should ask me to lay hands on her for her healing.

And so I prayed and laid hands on her. She had a cold that would not go away. She would cough and cough. She said that she knew it was an attack of the enemy.

I didn't think too much about it until 3 weeks later when I was speaking with the same lady again. I asked her, "How is your throat?"

She said to me, "Prophet, from the time that you prayed for me, I haven't coughed since. I even went to my doctor and he noticed that I wasn't coughing anymore and so he asked if I was taking the medicine that he gave me. I said, no," she said. " God healed me, a prophet prayed for me."

The rest is history. All Glory to God for healing her! He is Healer!

And God will heal others through you if you would only believe in Him, Trusting in His Word.
