On my walk, I met a neighbor who told me this story. He had an ulcer, and so his stomach had been hurting him. Some of his friends convinced him to go on a men’s retreat with his church.
He reluctantly went, even more reluctantly because they were serving pizza, which would not agree with his stomach. Near the end of the retreat, he was surprised because the leader said, “Let’s pray for Donald.” So everyone laid their hands on Donald and prayed for him.
Afterwards, there was no longer a burning in his stomach. He was completely cured during those few minutes that day.
I heard a similar story from another friend. She has a son, who had just been diagnosed with a blood disease. She brought him to their church, where everyone laid their hands on him or on someone who was touching him. He became very, very hot, and bright red. The next day, a further blood test showed he was completely cured.
May we all know the power that can heal, that lives within us.
