Here’s the account of a man diagnosed with terminal cancer that did not give up but he and his wife kept on praying for a miracle and finally received a documented healing. From the Blaze:
“Even though I know my Lord so intimately and have a deep relationship with him, I really shook in my boots,” Rosey Brausen said, explaining how difficult it was to continue praying when doctors were asking how her husband was going to spend his last days.
She said that God warned the couple that they were “in for a battle,” and so they hunkered down, refusing to give up hope that healing could be a possibility; rather than give up, they began taking a number of steps in an effort to steadfastly hope — and pray — for the best.
“Getting a prayer team around us, saying scripture out loud over us … and then keeping my eyes focused on [God],” Rosey said of their actions, which also included treatments and the removal of a lung.
Many times, she said that Christians treat God like a Santa Claus of sorts, imploring him to “give us what we’re praying for,” but not realizing that it can sometimes be a long battle — and that he won’t always answer every prayer.
In the end, Rosey said that she had to learn true and profound trust in the Almighty as she journeyed through her husband’s illness.
Response: This account is important since the story has broken through and has been noticed in the regular American media. I have known a number of folks in the last few years who have gone through similar healings but usually the MSM ignores them even if there is documented evidence.
Healings and miracles seem to be on the increase among Christians in America. Finally the press is beginning to write about them (See the previous article about the Pope blessing a family).
We are hoping and praying for revival and a new spiritual awakening in this nation. Signs and wonders, miracles and healings always seem to have a part of any move of God. In the past, the American media has documented those revivals and awakenings. Even in the 50’s the LA Times publicized a new evangelist- Billy Graham and featured accounts of his meetings on their front page and played an invaluable part in his rise to fame. Today that more than likely would not happen. Up to this point the national media has been ignoring any evidence of supernatural healing among Christians. Keep on praying! *Top
