Thanks for your prayers and help and support last Thursday. I thought I’d tell you what happened. I was on maximum co-codamol and the pain was still so awful I felt like I just wanted to cry. Also my arm had become almost useless; you prayed and slowly I felt the use of my arm come back and I could move my fingers. The pain ebbed but was still quite painful, but bearable… I went home and enjoyed playing the piano for an hour. The next morning all pain had gone (and had none since). I played the piano again for an hour. Oh the pleasure! No pain and no pain killers. Thanks again.

During our preparation time today, the team shared communion. As we were reminded of its significance, I thought “I would like God to heal these burns on my arms” and then I put the thought out of my mind. These were from a recent barbacue event and I also had a deep, painful, inflammed, open burn on my finger caused by accidentally picking up a hot cinder. At the end of our session, I realised that there was no longer any trace of the burns to my arms, and the inflamation and pain of the wound on my finger had gone and the wound had reduced greatly in size. God is so good.

“I have received healing through prayer before but this week I was in pain again, so I came back for more prayer. Again, I found that my shoulder and arm became very warm and all pain left me.”

“I would like to share with you my experience of healing whilst attending the “How To Minister Healing” Training Course.
For almost a year I have been being treated for Bursitis in my right shoulder, and tendonitis in the main tendon of my right bicep. This meant that I was unable to raise my right arm or reach behind me without experiencing severe pain. Sometimes I was in pain even when I wasn’t trying to use my arm. I had physio and then was referred to MSK who gave me a cortisone injection. When that didn’t work I had an ultra sound guided cortisone injection. This did improve matters a bit but I was still suffering.
I noticed some improvement when I received healing in Church too, but seemed to hit a “wall” where things didn’t seem to be getting any better. The chronic pain began to wear me down and I wondered if I would ever get back to normal.
When I attended the training at Shekinah I realized that I was blocking my own healing. What a revelation, praise God. I had no idea there was still unforgiveness in my life towards others or towards myself. I opened up my heart to God and received healing.
Since then I have continued to improve and can now worship again with both hands raised. There is still some residual stiffness but I know God isn’t finished with me yet.
As if that wasn’t enough, at the end of the training, I was privileged to pray for another person on the course and witness their amazing healing too. Thank you so much for that opportunity, even my family and friends are benefiting! God Bless”

“When I came to the Healing Rooms I was in extreme pain in my wrist, hand, elbow and shoulder, so much so that I could not bear for anyone to touch me. The team prayed for me without touching me and I felt a lovely warm sensation in the whole of my arm. I felt much better by the time I left. By the time I got home, the pain level had dropped and when I got up the next day the swelling had gone and I had no pain at all. Praise God”

“I requested healing prayer for numbness in my fingers of my left hand and a heaviness of my left arm. I felt an anointing of the Holy Spirit during the ministry and the feeling came back in my fingers. My neck also felt more mobility in my neck!”

“I received prayer for pain in my neck, shoulder and arm. As I was being prayed for I realized I needed to release forgiveness. As I did so I felt the Holy Spirit enter my whole body and calm me down. He made me truly believe that God’s help is only one question away!”
