And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up – James 5:15
When Sister Mary prays, results happen. God hears her prayers and answers them. People are healed and lives are transformed. And God is glorified.
Mary became a prayer warrior after she was healed more than ten years ago from a terribly painful stomach disease. She and her husband had searched for a cure and had spent large amounts of money for a cure but nothing worked. Her story sounds remarkably similar to that of the woman who diseased with an issue of blood twelve years. Like Mary, this woman had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any. One day, she decided that she would go to Jesus for healing. She said in her heart, “If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole” (Matthew 9:20, 21). In faith she reached out and touched His garment and was healed.
Unlike the woman in the Bible, Mary didn’t know anything about Jesus. For her, there was no one who could help her. After several years of pain and no hope of a cure, Mary planned to kill herself. But Jesus interceded. He spoke to her in a vision and she experienced God’s power to heal.
Since her healing, Mary has walked in faith and obedience to Jesus by praying for the people in her community. She knew the incredible power of prayer and how it can change lives. God worked through her to heal others like Jona. Jona was in a terrible accident and the prognosis was that he didn’t have a chance to live. But God had other plans for Jona and He healed him. Now Jona serves Him as a pastor and missionary, bringing others to Jesus just as he was reached by Sister Mary. Jona vows, “I will carry this good news the rest of my life and serve Him with all my heart.”
Sister Mary is a simple woman who placed her faith and trust in God and now in faith, she is praying for the sick and suffering in her remote village in South Asia. Watch the rest of her amazing story. It will encourage you and move you to reach out to those who need to know about the awesome God you worship and serve.
Prayer is a very powerful tool and when it is done in faith, it can move mountains and do the impossible. Join Sister Mary and others in praying for the people of Asia. “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16).
For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their prayers – 1 Peter 3:12
