At Faith Church of Sherman, we believe in divine healing because God’s Word claims it. But we have also had the opportunity to witness God’s healing for ourselves and see his miracles in our lives and in the lives of those we love. Below are many examples of healing that we have witnessed in our church. You can have it too!
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
I was given twenty-four months to live as my ongoing fight with cancer had spread from my chest to my skin and also to my spine. Recently, my results came in and the doctors had the pleasure of announcing my miracle. There are no new tumors anywhere in my body!!! My thoracic vertebrae, which had live tumors and an eroded bone, are healing. The bone is actually also rebuilding, which does not happen. The hole that was in the T3 vertebrae is repairing. The doctors say that remission isn't a word they will use for five more years, but for now my cancer is stable and there is no new evidence of disease. They once again said, "Keep doing whatever it is that you are doing." What I am doing is believing in Jesus, following the doctor’s orders, and being a part of an amazing faith community that has made this journey possible. Thank you to each of you that have helped make this journey one of faith!!
My Dad was diagnosed with gallbladder cancer and given six months to live. Brother Glass prayed for him in the hospital. After surgery, the doctor said, “It’s not cancer!”
In June of 2011, I was diagnosed with a "large" 1.2" tumor near my brain. Along with being attached to my hearing and balance nerves, it was pressing on my brain-stem. Each doctor I spoke to told me that the primary focus of each treatment option was to save my facial nerve, which had most likely been stretched and weakened, and remove all the tumor in one attempt. After a Wednesday night service, my family and I went to Bro. Glass' office to discuss my surgical options. Bro. Glass said he felt like praying for me right then. We all felt a powerful move of the Spirit and I walked away with total peace of mind knowing that God was moving on my behalf. The following day I felt a unique sensation where I knew the tumor was. I believe that at that very moment God was moving that tumor and repairing any damage that had been done. God brought me through the nine-and-a-half hour surgery with no complications. The doctors were happy to report that they had been able to remove the entire tumor. The doctors had warned me that my face might not be fully functional following surgery. Not only was my face not paralyzed, but I didn't even have the typical weakness or numbness that followed this procedure! I thank God for performing another miracle in my life and healing me!
When I was 25 weeks pregnant with twins, I began premature labor. The doctor’s report gave the twins a 50% chance of survival. If they did survive, there was a 70% chance they’d have lifelong complications, such as cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, etc. I was told that I’d end up delivering the twins that week, if not that same day. I was confined to a hospital bed, but miraculously didn’t deliver them for 5 ½ more weeks. When they were born, the doctor said the twins would probably have to have heart and eye surgery. Brother Glass prayed for them, along with the whole church, and the twins are totally normal.
My daughter had a severe kidney disease that could have resulted in possible kidney failure and dialysis. Our church prayed and she was completely healed with no lasting effects.
Our son had a blood disorder, with test results indicating possible leukemia. We were unable to immediately get full treatment, but the church prayed. His platelet count went higher than it would have with the medicine. He was completely healed.
When our daughter was about 4 months old, she started having difficulty breathing. We took her to the doctor, who admitted her immediately. They decided to care flight her to Children's Medical Center, but before we left, we called Brother Glass to come and pray for her. When she got to Children's Medical Center, they couldn't find anything wrong with her, and she was breathing normally.
Our baby was choking, spitting up blood, and turning blue. We rushed him to the ER, where they could not stabilize him. His oxygen levels continued to drop and doctors prepared us for the worst, including intubation. Brother Glass walked in to his room and started praying. Within minutes, our baby was stabilized, and he didn't have to go through the procedure.
When I had a heart attack, God first gave my wife the clarity of mind to administer two aspirin and quickly get me to the hospital. When I arrived at the ER, God had a young heart surgeon ready to immediately perform a lifesaving procedure. God’s intervention turned a very serious heart attack in to a MIRACLE HEALING in less than an hour!”
I had chest pains for years and finally sought medical attention. The doctor said I had an extra pathway inside my heart. I was scheduled for a procedure where the doctor was going to go in and burn the extra pathway. During the church service before the procedure was scheduled to occur, the entire church prayed for me. The doctor was unable to locate the extra pathway during the procedure. I haven't had an issue since.
I was diagnosed with a severe case of mononucleosis during college. The doctor said that I would have to stop going to classes for six months to recover. After being prayed for by our pastor’s wife, I was completely healed of Mono and able to return to college within weeks.
After our pastor anointed me and prayed for me, I was healed of spinal meningitis.
I was born with bronchial asthma. When I was 18 years old, we were on a vacation. During this vacation, I had a bad asthma attack and was wheezing and laboring to breathe. My mother put her hand on my back and started praying. The presence of God filled the room and instantly, my next breath was normal. At that moment, God completely healed me of asthma and bronchitis!
A stroke left me unable to walk, talk, or use my right side. Through the faith of our church and the prayer of our pastor, today I can walk without aid, talk, and use my right arm and hand.
ILLNESSES AND INJURIES
As I was going to work at 5:30 one morning, I was hit by an 18 wheeler and the back end of my car went under the trailer. The back seat and trunk were crushed on the right side of my car. The police said, "This should be a fatality, but she is OK". The only area of car not totaled was the driver seat and window. My only injury was a cut below my left eye. I was told that I would be sore and was given medication for pain and muscle relaxation, but I never used them. I only missed one day of work after the accident and that was because I had to buy a new car. I still declare this as a miracle of protection.
After being in a head-on car collision, I was in excruciating pain. X-rays showed a broken collar bone. After prayer from our pastor, a second set of x-rays revealed no break where there had been a clean break visible earlier. My collar bone was put back together.
In 2006, I was diagnosed with seizures and was restricted from driving for six months. The doctors told me that while they didn’t know why it started; there was nothing that could be done to stop it except the use of high doses of seizure medication, which had little effect. Brother Glass prayed for me and told me to hold steady that this was not an illness, but an attack of the enemy to thwart my effectiveness in the kingdom of God. I have been seizure free for two years. They left as quickly as they had come and I have no ill effects. I thank God for his healing power and His Word that says, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.”
