Stomachs and digestion
Testimonies of healing from stomach and digestion issues from Healing Rooms:
“Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. The gallstones we have been praying about vanished to the doctor’s surprise. All glory to God.”
“A lady who came to the Healing Rooms with a bowel problem where it had not functioned naturally for 20 years - she was instantly healed! The consultant appointment was for a few days time and when she went, they were going to discuss the operation to fit a permanent colostomy with her - however she told the consultant that she had had normal bowel movements for the last 2 days. On examination the consultant found that she was completely healed, he was amazed and couldn't explain this.”
“I visited the Healing Rooms @ Costa Coffee and had been experiencing pain in my stomach. The team were understanding and friendly and prayed for me. I felt relaxed and a calm feeling came over me. Later that night the pain had eased and I had a good night’s sleep. Next day the pain slowly disappeared.”
“I had a damaged stomach lining and my body could not break down fat in foods. It got to the point where I almost couldn’t eat anything. I came to Healing Rooms and they prayed for my healing. I forgave people and prayed for healing. The next morning when I woke up for the first time in 4 years I did not feel unwell and my stomach didn’t feel like a washing machine. I started eating the foods that had made me ill and kept eating them! I wasn’t ill anymore.”
“I got diagnosed with Crohn's when I was 13. It has been an embarrassing 20 years of invasive tests, horrendous medications and the feeling that my body is sabotaging my life. As a Christian who has always believed in and sees the power of prayer, this was not my first time of asking God to heal me. I have had a couple of times when I thought something had happened and I (stupidly) stopped medication, and inevitably got ill again a few months later. I decided that if God was going to heal me of Crohn's He would get to it when He was ready.
One day in 2017: I was in Hillsborough for a chiropractor appointment. I was booked in for another colonoscopy the following day. Things had been really bad and my doctor had wanted to hospitalise me but I asked her to wait till after the test. I felt strongly that I needed to go into Costa. I really wasn’t thirsty and it was too close to payday to really justify it. But I had time on my hands, so I went in anyway and bumped into my old school friend's parents. I went to say hello and they explained that they were there as part of the Hillsborough Healing Rooms and would I like some prayer? I never refuse 'cos you never know when God might move so I said yes, not really expecting anything and having to watch the clock so I didn’t miss my appointment. The prayer was very much my kind of prayer, not showy. We were in a coffee shop after all! We just chatted with God and with each other. It was pleasant and I felt encouraged but I didn’t think much about it other than that I now had peace when before I had been anxious and fed up at the prospect of another flare up.
The next day at my hospital appointment I went through the usual routine of being prepared to be wheeled into the exam room. The staff were their usual soothing selves but we all expected to see that I had a lot of inflammation in my colon. Between the deep breaths and sucking on the gas and air (very liberally) I heard the doctor exclaim “Wow! everything looks so healthy, I really was not expecting to see this!” I stopped sucking on the gas and air and asked what he meant. I was told that there was a small patch of inflammation but it was very small and contained to one area. There was nothing at all to explain why I had been so ill the week before and more than that, my colon had not looked this healthy in 20 years! After the test my nurses repeated the good news. I hadn’t misheard.
A few months later: Part of me didn’t want to share my testimony at first, because I wanted time to test the reality of it. That time has passed and now my doctors are working towards a medically approved reduction and change of medication. It will take a few months but I am following their instructions to reduce and change my medication to less intrusive ones. I have not been feeling ill and run down the way I was before the prayer and even though there is still some more healing to be had, I know that things were bad and now they are not. Praise God. I’m going to keep praying for my full healing but I am so thankful that a flare up got stopped in its tracks and my medical team are stumped! I keep explaining that I got prayer but they struggle to accept that God is healing me. In the meantime, I have been able to keep working, keep living and have so much more health and hope than I had before I met the Hillsborough Healing Rooms.”
“I came to the Healing Rooms in crisis! I had a swollen stomach which was very painful and nauseous! After 20-30 minutes with them praying for me I felt well enough to go back to work. I was able to work pain free and with no nausea. Thank you Jesus and thank you Healing Rooms!!”
