“God Heard Your Prayers” – How Sabina Was Healed
Jul 5, 2019 22163
On the 10th of May 2019, GNU Health Ministries in Uganda decided to visit one of the biggest Hospitals in Uganda, Entebbe Hospital. Our purpose was to offer hope to the sick through reading the Word of God and thereafter saying a prayer of hope for the ailing.
Our first patient was Sabina, a woman of 36 years and a mother of three. This friend had been in the hospital for weeks, with a strangely swollen hand, which doctors had warned would be amputated if things didn’t change. According to her, the doctors had tried different solutions but nothing seemed to work. Before that, her husband had taken her to a local witch doctor who had promised results after two to three days. This was after the family parted with a huge sum of money as fee. Nothing happened. She had come this hospital as a last resort.
When we asked if we could pray with her, to our surprise, she was more than willing even though she had confessed her Islamic faith. We stood and prayed quietly in the Spirit trying to discern God’s will about our friend’s situation. After 10 or so minutes of fervent prayer, we pronounced healing and left the place with assurance that God would soon remedy the situation. Due to our busy schedule at that period, we missed the following week’s appointment with her. Although in our frail humanity we had almost forgotten her sorry state of health, it turned out that God who never slumbers had heard our prayers and seen her faith even though she knew little of him.
Her hand had been healed in ways that doctors could not explain
And so it happened that on the afternoon of 18 May 2019, I received a call from a woman testifying about the great healing that she had encountered after our visit and prayer in the hospital. She was so excited on the phone, as she narrated how her hand had been healed in ways that doctors could not explain. She explained on phone that one week later she had woken up one morning to a hand that been relieved from the pain and the swelling. This was after a new doctor’s recommendation of a change of the treatment. She believes that the new treatment she received was directed by God, thanks to our prayers and her faith in God. She said with joy that “God heard your prayers, I am now healed”. I plan to visit her soon in her home and thank God together as we celebrate her recovery.
