Those of us that take part in this Ministry, have been trained by some of the best in the feild of Christian Faith Healing, and others simply have been called upon to do this Ministry by the power of the Lord working within them. What ever the backround each of us knows that the power to heal in God's name, can and is given by God to anyone whom he chooses to work through. For it is God at work not us, for we are all only instruments of His will, and we give all Glory and Honor to His Name, in everthing that is done through this ministry, and in ever part of our lives.
Each of us who take part in this Ministry have experienced the power of prayer in our lives and the love and healing grace that can only be given from God. We each have our own story.
As for myself I have seen the power of our Lord God in my own life in many ways. Possibly the most important, being in how I was led to this Ministry by the healing that took place in my own life, in my own body. In 2001 I was diagnosed with stage four Lung Cancer and only given 3 months to live.
I begain to pray for a miracle. I begain to pray the Rosary. I am not Roman Catholic, but I am Catholic, for as it speaks of in The Apostles Creed and in The Nicene Creed. I do believe in one Holy and Catholic Church. I believe in the power gave to the Blessed Mother Mary, by her son, Our Lord Jesus Christ to intercede for those who ask this of her. Day and night I prayed for the Blessed Mothers intercession, and I had a vision of The Blessed Mother standing by my bed and she told me not to worry that I would be OK, that the Lord had more work for me to do.
The doctors had told my wife and children to be prepared, that I would be in ICU for a long time and that I would have many tubs and lines running into me. Thanks be to God, and for the intersessions of our Blessed Mother Mary and the prayers offered up by my family and others this was not the case and I returned to my room with simply an oxygen line, and within a day or so was up and walking around. The doctor reported that if the Cancer had been any further into my airway they would not have been able to save me but thanks be to God it was at the point so that they where able to stretch my airway enough to make a closure and I was saved. I thanked the doctor when he came into my room to tell me what had gone on, he said no thanks to me, I didn't think going in that you had much of a chance, it's all Thanks to God for it was His hand at work that you are still here. That was 7 years ago and I am still going strong, and have turned my life totally over to God and to Glorify His Name and His Love and Works to all who will hear.
The Power of Prayer is an Awesome Power - I thank God that He does hear and answers our Prayers and Suplications and Patitions. I also give thanks to The Blessed Mother Mary, and that she is always there to hear our patitions and intercede on our behalf.
