On Life Support With Little Chance To Live
From Don Sturiano, Senior Leader
Probably my favorite testimony of miraculous healing that I had the privilege to be used by God for.
A few years back, as Chaplain for the Bradenton Police Department, I received a call from the Deputy Chief, asking me to pray for a young officer’s wife whose heart had shut down, was flatlined & being kept alive through life-support . The doctors had only given her a day or two to live.
The Deputy Chief, along with another officer, a Sergeant, were recently healed from a voicemail message I left them on their cell phones! This is what prompted him to call me.
I went into the ICU, rebuked death, declared life and the commanded her to be healed.
Within 24 hours she was conscious, completely off life support. The above photos are before and after. She attends our church now, loves the Lord and is here to watch her children grow up.
To God be The Glory! Thank you Jesus!
Following a recent Discipleship Training Class, a woman came to us requesting prayer for her eyes. She had cataracts, & without her glasses everything up close was blurry. She also said that it was like looking through a tunnel. Immediately after receiving prayer she could see up close without the blur, & seeing as thru a tunnel was gone.
She wanted to wait to release this testimony until after she saw her eye doctor, who had recommended cataract surgery. Following her doctors visit she was told she no longer needed the surgery.
Thank you Jesus! To God be all the glory! May you heal others that hear this testimony!
One of our newer members came to us with with HIV, His immune system far below normal and his heart operating at 23%; He received prayer. Yesterday, he brought me his lab and doctor's report; heart is now at 86%, immune system at normal levels and no detection at all of HIV. Thank you Jesus! To YOU, be the Glory. . .
Healed of Nerve Damage Pain
During pre-service prayer this morning, one of our folks had a word of knowledge that someone in the meeting had nerve damage issues. There was woman in the meeting who had been suffering from severe pain from that very issue for the last seven months, she receive prayer and was immediately healed. Later, in service we gave the testimony, then prayed for others that had nerve damage pain, several were healed including a first-time guest. Thank You Jesus, You are good!
Testimony from one of our awesome church family members, Thomas Hayes!
“Healing testimony at grocery store today! A woman in the flower department said her shoulder hurt so bad she was gonna pass out. I prayed for her, and she received partial healing. She said she felt goosebumps. I prayed for her again, and her shoulder was completely healed. That time we both felt goosebumps. PTL !!!”
Set Free From Nightmares & Night Terrors
One of the newer folks at our church was battling nightmares and night terrors. Following service they received prayer for that to be broken off them and to be set free.
This morning they contacted us; “I having been having them consistent for about 5 months, at least once a night. It was awful. So much so it haunted me all throughout my day. Not one nightmare last night. Such a blessing to be able to sleep”
Thank You Jesus!
Miracles At School Crossing
These testimonies are from one of our church family members, he is a crossing guard for the school system. He came to us about a year and a half ago, because he was hungry to learn about healing.
“Yesterday one of the parents came through my intersection and was limping pretty severely, I asked him what happened, he said he tore his Achilles’ tendon, I asked if I can I lay hands on your ankle and pray, he was healed, no more limp he was just praising God. Then today a young mother was walking across the street and started to collapse, both her legs were giving out on her and her child and I kept her from flattening out on the sidewalk. She let me pray for her, her pain left, she got up and walked home! Thank you FATHER!”
Baby Girl Healed!
A woman in our church who had been suffering from Shingles was healed during a Sunday service.
Here is her testimony; "The rash is barely visible. First time in a long time I got out of bed without stabbing pain in my hip. Skin no longer numb and that feels great. For awhile it felt like my skin wasn't mine. All praise and glory to God. There were nights I cried myself to sleep because it hurt so much and now thanks to God's touch I sleep well and so does my loving husband."
Lupus Miraculously Healed!
I had the privilege to speak at a conference in November 2016, following the message, I prayed for a pastor's mother battling with Lupus. I just received this testimony; To God be the glory!
"Hey Pastor, I wanted to let you know that God used you to heal my mom! She has been battling Lupus and with that comes a lot of inflammation and basically long story short, after you prayed for her, she felt no pain. Has had NO pain since then, and just got back from the doctor that told her that her inflammation levels went from 1.75 down to .69 NOW! They have been trying different medications to try to reduce inflammation and now the protein levels are completely normal and she no longer has to take those meds! Thank you for your obedience in hearing from Him and laying hands on her! She's a new person without all this pain!!"
If God can use me, HE will use you, be bold, pray for the sick, expect a miracle & give God the glory!
Injured Neck Healed!
Injured Neck Healed!
A woman who was in a severe accident, injured her neck. She was in constant pain with minimum mobility and no spinal curvature. After receiving prayer from one of our members, she was immediately and completely healed. She is pain free with full mobility, and the curvature of her spine has been fully restored.
Every Thursday @ 9:00 am in the sanctuary, we have a time of worship and then pray for various needs especially healing. Here is a report from one of our members after attending.
"About 2 years ago I fractured my ankle, about 4 days ago I tweaked it. I was really concerned I'd have to miss work the last time was i off almost three months. BUT GOD, yesterday I went to praise n worship and got prayer,before that prayer my ankle felt like it was on fire, But, since then the pain n the fire has been put out. Thank you God I am healed"
Healing in Furniture store from two of our church family members
Praise Jesus!! We were looking for some furniture today and at one of the furniture stores & the girl who helped us was telling us how much pain she was in. She had plantar fasciitis in both feet and had surgery a week ago on her right foot and it was hurting even worse. We laid hands on her & Jesus healed her right there on the spot. She was crying and then as we got to talking about the furniture she just had to stop and we cried again and just Worshipped the Lord because she was overwhelmed. She said the whole last hour she was in so much pain because she works on her feet all day and thought she's going to really pay tonight because of what she's doing to herself and now she's standing there talking to us and it just overwhelmed her again after it kept hitting her that the pain was gone.
