G’morning – I want to give you an update on my sister. Her prognosis two weeks ago was grave according to her neuro-surgical team. But that was not God’s plan.
He heard all of our prayers for her and the medical staff is baffled (don’t you love when God does that??!!) She had a final surgery to put in a stent and is being released to a rehab facility today – weeks ahead of what was expected. She will have to do some cognitive work to regain her short term memory – 90 – 95% of that should come back. Thank you for your prayer support!
I thought you might enjoy hearing what A shared with me today. He went to see his liver doctor this week, and his numbers are down from 170 to 131. His doctor was stunned and said that this doesn’t usually happen. What did A attribute this to? He said, “Prayer.” He was a bit wary because he said they drew the blood before the healing service, but I told him that God is not bound by time, so God did heal him. This was so awesome to hear.
” Saw Fran today and she said after our prayer on Saturday the back pain was gone!”
K came to our healing service shortly before her scheduled surgery to remove cancer. We prayed that the doctors would be surprised by what they do NOT find when operating. And sure enough, they did NOT find what they expected. Chemo and radiation were cancelled and K is fine.
Carol came up to me, grabbed both my hands and shook them excitedly! I had just completed my second healing service at her church, and she wanted me to know what had happened after my first visit, when I prayed with her. She was facing surgery for a leaking heart valve that caused her blood pressure to fluctuate uncontrollably. After receiving prayer, she no longer needed surgery – her heart valve was working perfectly with no leaks, and her blood pressure was normal! When I asked her if I could share her testimony with others, she threw her arms up in the air and said “YES! I want everyone to know what Jesus has done for me!” Praise God for His healing grace! -Pastor Debbi
E came for prayer after losing her job quite unexpectedly. She was angry at the injustice of her treatment, and at one person in particular. She had gotten a new job, but it was not right for her. The resumes she had been sending out brought no responses after several weeks of trying, and hopelessness was setting in.
We prayed to forgive the person who had treated her badly, and we prayed for God’s perfect job to come forward in His perfect timing. And we prayed for the renewal of hope and encouragement in her situation.
The very next day after our prayer time, the phone began to ring and the job offers started! E now has her pick of opportunities. In giving permission for me to share this, she wanted to make sure I relay how “blown away” she is by the way God turned things around so quickly for her!
Here is what makes this story even more interesting – this is the second person I’ve prayed with in a month with this same situation. And in both cases, God turned everything around in ONE DAY! God is SO good!
I wanted to share this with you. Big smiles.
I invited my congregation to join me at your healing service last Saturday. Three people came, including Bob who started coming to church in August.
I wasn’t sure they would be able to receive the fullness of the service. They were a little uncomfortable. When one told a friend she was coming, the friend’s advice was to “sit quietly, don’t talk, and DON’T sign anything!” Afterwards we had lunch and they didn’t say much about the service.
The next day at church when we passed the peace Bob said to me: “I have a revelation. I’ll tell you at coffee hour”.
At coffee hour Bob explained to me that he had an artificial knee in each leg. He wakes with severe pain in his left knee if he sleeps on it straightened out. Any time his leg is straight the pain is there. Saturday evening after the service, his knee started cracking like crazy. People across the room could hear it.
In the morning Bob woke up and his leg was straight and he felt no pain. At church he told me he had not felt any pain since waking up and that he was healed. He gave credit to God for healing him at the service on Saturday.
He is away and I haven’t caught up with him to get an update, but he experienced healing and you all should know! Praise God! Bob has given permission to share this testimony.
Good morning Debbi. I pray these days are bringing you closer to our Lord and savior.
I wanted to tell you about my experience at the prayer and healing service you hosted last Saturday, in particular my session with two of your prayer team members. I asked the two members to pray for healing, I did not mention what kind of healing, just healing. While praying I noticed the hand that one team member had placed on my shoulder became uncomfortably hot, so hot I had to move away even though I was wearing a heavy jacket. I probably should explain that the healing I was referring to was a shoulder injury I suffered a few months ago while attempting to lift a refrigerator. Since this episode I have had less than 40% movement in my shoulder and continual pain to the extent of the pain waking me up at night. As I said the healing service was Saturday and I realized yesterday that I had been sleeping through the night, no waking up in pain. Further I now have 100% use of my shoulder with only minimal discomfort! Praise God and thank you so much for your ministry to all of us.
It’s Good Friday. Good because 2000 years ago the events of today prove that God truly loves us.
Dear Pastor Debbi,
Hello and thank you for your work on Saturday’s healing service.
I wanted to report to you two miracles that happened as a result of God’s work.
First, I had about two hours’ relief from the agony I’ve been experiencing lately. Thank you, Jesus.
Second, I don’t know if you remember, but a woman seated directly in front of me gave testimony to how the Spirit had worked through her non-believer sister, relieving her of physical distress and insomnia after she attended a previous healing service. This weekend after your service, my sister, whom I’ve been praying for, asking that she be shown the Way, broke down emotionally when she read on the internet a story I had written years ago about our family. She’s been in agony for a long time now and the story apparently tapped her pain in a way it hadn’t been previously. She called and I told her a little bit about generational healing and the healing service that will be held at Jesse Lee next month, when she will be coming to visit. I also told her about the woman seated in front of me and her sister. I asked if she would like, instead of going into NY that day, to go to the healing service. She said YES!
Of course, the results are up to God, but I thank you for your constancy in the Walk, and your willingness to keep urging the rest of us on.
Dear Pastor Debbi,
I had been suffering from mouth lesions and blistering. No antibiotic had worked. The doctor’s next step would have been to biopsy to test for cancer. It was quite painful. After the generational healing service, I immediately began to experience relief from the pain. By Sunday morning, I had ABSOLUTELY NO lesions or blisters. I am going back to the doctor for a checkup, but PRAISE GOD, because I KNOW that I am healed!
I thoroughly enjoyed the conference and felt much growth and healing…tears just kept slowly dripping down my face during most of it – I felt like my heart was an ice cube that was gently melting.
Our marriage began to heal. We feel like we are just floating along in God’s love.
Dear Prayer Group:
After Sunday’s 11am service, I met with two prayer team members. They offered prayers for my upcoming surgery. Surgery would be a relatively straight forward endoscopy procedure, or if that was unsuccessful, a much more extensive open surgery. When the surgeon approached the operating table, he asked how I was doing. I used a phrase from the prayer team to say that we will all do well, because God and His angels were with us. He patted my shoulder as I went under anesthesia. As hoped and prayed for, the endoscopy procedure was successful. Thanks for your efforts and prayers, which add a great measure of reassurance and confidence when facing a major challenge.
Here’s an update on the results of your team’s prayers- it looks like I may be taking a new position in NJ in September! The prayers have brought amazing results. See crazy timeline below:
- May 28 – Prayer Meeting – your pray-ers prayed for my job, my career, and my purpose in life.Had had no leads or interviews after 6 months of networking and sending applications. Depressing.
- May 29 – Had idea to apply for jobs in a related field.
- May 30 week – Received e-mail to interview for job in related field. Received 2 other e-mail replies that my applications were forwarded to hiring manager.
- June 7 – Soaking Prayer – requested prayer for depression in jobhunt, greater freedom in Christ. Went through entire box of Kleenex! Felt such peace when I left and relief I had found your pray-er ministry.
- June 25 – Prayer Meeting – requested continued prayer for job, career, purpose, continued feelings of unworthiness in jobhunt, etc. Felt new energy for jobhunt.
- June 26 – Applied for job. Less than 24 hours later, company called to see if I’d be available to come down from NY to NJ for a hiring event the next day June 27. Mind you, I was then in NJ all week for training so I got their address and agreed to come. Turn’s out, the company’s hiring event was located at the same Interstate exit in NJ as my hotel where I was staying that week in NJ for training, so I drove around the block and attended the hiring event (you can’t make this stuff up). I brought no suit to wear, did little preparation, had to compete with 7 other applicants in a group interview, gave presentation (surprise), took a test (surprise), and a separate panel interview with company reps. Bottom line at end of evening: I was their top candidate?
- July 5 – Soaking Prayer. Wished I could feel this peace everywhere I go, all the time.
- June 13 – Had second interview with company. They offered me the position.
What a wild & crazy answer to prayer! I am so encouraged and certain that God is arranging pieces of my life just as He planned. I know you all advertise as a healing prayer ministry, but the emotional healing from your prayers helped me get a job. Better watch out or your healing prayer ministry may become a jobhunt ministry in a tough economy! And turn around the economy. Really, I pray God will continue to expand your prayer ministry beyond its present boundaries. You have tapped into a deep need and gap in our society… and Christians and non-Christians alike will be drawn through your doors because you obey and pray and bring the power of God. Keep on keepin’ the faith.
I talked with my sister-in-law last night. She had a cyst in her leg bone, and had been putting off going back for a follow-up x-ray for fear of learning that she would need to have surgery. We have been praying that the cyst would resolve on its own, and that the hole in her bone would be replaced by bone tissue. And so it is! There is no sign of the cyst—just beautiful, perfect leg bone, as God intended. Thanks be to God! And thank you to all of you who have prayed for her.
I wanted to add my thanks as well. There is much comfort in knowing that so many people are keeping you in their prayers. I continue to count my blessings for wonderful family members and friends – and for continued good health. Please let the prayer team know how much I appreciate their caring and support.
I know that I shared with you, a couple of months ago and then again during Soaking Prayer that I had some health issues that had come about and after an afternoon of testing yesterday, am relieved and grateful to share with you that everything that was evident in previous sonograms is now gone and no longer a concern!!!!!!! Prayers are answered once again and I am feeling touched by God’s healing hand, so evident for the second time in such a short period of time. Thank you for your love, for the touch of your hand in prayer and for helping me to find this incredible ministry right here in my own backyard.
My Mom is looking very healthy and happy. There is a spring in her step and a very new twinkle in her eye. A little over a month ago she was giving her things away and deeply depressed. Physically she was seriously ill though too. She is definitely turning around. I told her about all those praying for her at my request and she disclosed to me that her “religious” friends had their churches praying also. She said, “Maybe that’s why I have been feeling so good.”
Debbi, thank you for Friday prayer. Such a weight has been lifted off of me. In my thoughts, my friends now are back into the people that they were many years ago. Such a relief.
Yes you can use my name and the story. The power of God’s love never ceases to amaze me. I have seen His healing power before, but last Saturday was different. I wasn’t asking for healing but as you said, He wanted to let us know He is with us, even when we are not paying attention. He is the Great Physician!!!
May God continue to bless you,
I have been feeling fine. My knee is great. You see my knee has been bothering me for sometime now and that day I even had the Excederine in my pocket ready to take before I drove home. I haven’t had to use it at all. It is an incredible experience. The following day, Sunday, when I got up, not only was there no pain but the swelling was also gone.
Since you two prayed with me last Monday, I praise God that I have received much healing. Through His Spirit, God has led me to an eating plan that has already brought me relief from digestive problems. I am also sleeping better, which I have not be able to do for a LONG time. He is so faithful!! Thank you for being His obedient servants in the Prayer Ministry!
I want to share with you that yesterday after you left, my energy came back and allowed me to prepare dinner and also have a walk of 25 minutes and sleep much better. My heart was full of joy. Thank you Jesus, and thanks for you visit.
I saw the doctor this morning and my tests came out great. I have to re-do tests every 6 months for the rest of my life. But Praise the Lord – all is well.
The prayers definitely helped.
Now that I’ve come out of my Holy Spirit induced “basking” I wanted to let you know what Jesus did Tuesday night. First off, it was a treat to experience Soaking Prayer and be in a beautiful, spirit filled place with your team. I had not experienced a full session of Soaking Prayer so it was personally just awesome.
I always seem to ask for prayer for body alignment, an ongoing issue at different points, and God always does something. I had worked out earlier in the day and my left side wasn’t totally happy about that. Each time someone prayed, something deeper happened! The first time there was tingling especially in my arm and some in my shoulder. And a release. The next time there was more tingling in my neck and shoulder but some areas were not responding like my throbbing temple and trouble spots in my neck. At one prayer time, my left foot “jerked” which I know can be a muscle release but it was definitely a God thing. I believe it was the last time of prayer, when I had switched to my side at one point, that my whole left side “jerked” and released. The headache I entered with was completely gone and my left side was indeed in alignment. So, if God did that in my physical body, just think how he answered my request for spiritual discernment in my spiritual body that I don’t even know yet!
To God’s Glory!
I wanted to let you know that my back is doing great. I went to my neurologist for a follow up appointment for my back. He said I was doing fine and all was looking well. He took me off all medication and I am happy to report it continues to feel well. Thank you for taking the time to do the Healing Prayer that day.
In 2005, after experiencing sleep trouble, fatigue and weight gain, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and nodules on both sides of my thyroid gland. Prayer got me through the painful needle biopsies, and the tests showed that these nodules were benign. Additional prayer from our prayer team followed, and two months later, without any medication, my thyroid was back to normal. My family has a strong history of hypothyroidism, so being able to avoid living with the medication, Synthroid, is a true blessing for me. I thanked God and decided not to worry about the remaining nodules, since they were benign.
Last month, during a routine exam, my doctor could no longer find any evidence of the original nodules! Through the prayer that I regularly receive from our prayer team, God has healed me completely from this generational dis-ease. Thank you God!

4-year-old nephew, Gavin, was operated on for a brain tumor twice last year and his family was told that they didn’t have any known treatment for that type of tumor. They told the family to go home and try to enjoy the time that was left.
He received prayer and proton radiation that was experimental last winter. A number of prayer requests were sent out to our team and many others for prayer. The family knew that their only hope was a miracle by Jesus. He has just returned home from St. Jude’s in Memphis and his MRIs of brain and spine were CLEAR. Now the doctor told them “GO HOME AND LIVE YOUR LIFE”
