Today's Miracle Monday was submitted by Sister Cindy Henderson, and it highlights the power of prayer and God's healing touch.
Have you ever been immediately delivered from a physical affliction? Today, I share a blessing times three. Back in 2000, I was in the chemotherapy phase of treatment for breast cancer. A few months into the treatments, I found myself getting weaker, lacking energy, and extremely fatigued. My husband had carefully altered his work schedule so that I was not left alone for any long periods.
However, on one particular morning, when he was at work and our children were at school, I became concerned when I was unable to walk far without shortness of breath. From the kitchen doorway to the piano bench in our living room was only a few steps. I held onto the wall and furniture while walking and gasped for air with the slightest exertion. I decided to rest for a while and figured that a shower might help perk me up, not realizing that showering by myself would have been too taxing at that point.
Then, a sister from my branch called to check on me. When she sensed I could barely talk on the phone, she went into action. Unbeknownst to me, she made an urgent request for a prayer fan-out on my behalf. In the meantime, I had showered and began to go about a few household chores. Suddenly, it struck me that I could perform all my tasks with ease and I was breathing and walking normally.
This miracle revealed three major blessings. One, God saw fit to heal me of my breathing difficulties and fatigue immediately. Two, the sister who discerned I needed God’s help and appealed to the prayers of the saints took action after hearing God’s voice upon her heart and mind. She witnessed my health before and after prayers and fully realized the miraculous change that had taken place. Three, God blessed the brothers and sisters who had earnestly prayed by answering with a miracle.
This great healing encourages me to remember the afflicted, to listen to and obey God’s still voice, and to be quick to pray and give thanks for all God does for us.
