Healing Testimonies

Our God Who Sustains And Restores

I underwent a hernia operation in Singapore General Hospital on 1 November 2023, after which my doctor instructed me to go for a further checkup at the Urology Centre. He suspected my condition could be due to my frequent forced urination.

I was referred to the Urology Centre for an ultra-sound on 10 November 2023, and after the test, I was told my prostate was slightly enlarged and was given some medication for urine infection. I was scheduled for another appointment on 5 February 2024. While waiting for the appointment, the urge to pass urine increased. I then went to consult a GP, who referred me to see a specialist in Mt Elizabeth on 5 January 2024.

After the ultra-sound and urine speed test on 5 January, I was told my prostate was enlarged to 24.83cm. As I failed the urine speed test, I was given medication to relax my bladder and also to assist in my urination.

On Sunday, 7 January 2024, I went to the A&E as I was experiencing excruciating pain. The doctor who attended to me gave me two months of medication to relax my urinary tract and advised me not to drink water after 7pm to avoid waking up to pass urine. Even though I complied with these instructions, I continued waking up 2-3 times to pass urine.

From November 2023 to January 2024, I continued to pray, read healing scriptures, and attend the Online and On-site Miracle Service.

After the ultrasound on 5 February, I was told to see the doctor on 16 February for the result. 

On 16 February 2024, before going for this appointment, I partook in Holy Communion. During the review, the doctor told me that I had passed the urine speed test, and the size of my prostate had been reduced almost by half, from 24.83cm to 13.9cm. On top of that, the doctor said that I do not have to consume any more medication.

Praise the Lord for his healing.

A New Heart A Fresh Start

In December 2017, my life took an unexpected turn when I was diagnosed with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, also known as “systolic heart failure.” The journey began with weeks of discomfort, pain in the upper abdomen and back, and difficulty breathing. The revelation from my cardiologist was alarming – my heart’s ejection fraction (EF) was a mere 17%, well below the normal range of over 50%. I found myself grappling with disbelief and questioning why this had to happen to me, a young adult with so much ahead.

During my hospital stay, as my family and I sought to understand God’s purpose in this trial, His peace enveloped me. Despite the fear and uncertainty, I felt a sense of calm, and the supportive medical staff and kind nurses made my stay more bearable. The prayers from Powerlighters and others who stood with us were a source of strength, providing hope for breakthrough and deliverance.

After enduring a minor procedure to implant an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), my subsequent years involved a daily regimen of medication, dietary adjustments, and light exercises to manage my compromised heart. However, in November 2021, a severe tachycardiac event led to a recommendation for a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) to support my heart’s pumping function. The surgery was a significant undertaking, and we prayed fervently for a successful operation.

The initial recovery period was challenging, requiring adjustment to living with this new artificial “appendage.” My family was crucial in assisting with daily tasks, especially maintaining hygiene and preventing infection. Despite the challenges, I returned to work after a three-month hospitalization leave, continuing physiotherapy sessions to sustain my fitness level and adhering to a heart-healthy lifestyle.

Six months later, having regained strength, I received the news that I was being placed on the heart transplant waiting list. The subsequent call indicating a suitable heart was a surreal and emotional moment. As I prepared for the transplant surgery, I turned to the comforting words of Psalms 23 and 91, reaffirming my trust in God’s protection and surrendering my life to Him.

The heart transplant procedure went smoothly, and I progressed well in my recovery, eventually being discharged after a week. This new lease on life prompted a significant shift in my lifestyle. Grateful for the gift of a new heart, I committed to better care for my body, recognizing it as the temple of God’s Spirit.

While challenges persisted during the recovery, I held fast to my faith, diligently following the prescribed exercises and maintaining a disciplined routine. Recognizing that we are all vessels capable of being used by God, I acknowledged my continuous growth and transformation.

I praise and thank God for seeing me and my family throughout this journey and am grateful to everyone, including the medical and nursing staff, who has prayed or supported us. It means so much to us.

I also want to encourage those in a similar situation not to give up; instead, hold fast to God’s word and promises. Thank Him for each day you are awake because He is not done with you yet.

God bless.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Annie had been concerned about the blurred vision in her left eye for several years which affected her, particularly in driving and in her work. Despite taking supplements, she saw no improvement and could only console herself by praying to God for gradual recovery. 

While serving as a Gospelighter on the final night of HEAL Singapore, as Annie kept her focus on how God would move through her to heal others, it did not occur to her that God may heal her instead.

During a healing prayer led by the evangelist, David Diga Hernandez, Annie felt an unexpected pressure on her left eye. Testing her vision thereafter revealed a remarkable discovery – the vision on her left eye was now even better than her right. Doubts crept in as she approached the stage, but she held onto her faith despite uncertainties.

As she stood in line, waiting to share her testimony, Annie prayed for total healing and continuously tested her vision by observing her surroundings. To her amazement, God fully restored the vision in her left eye.

Through her experience, Annie believes in persevering in prayer because God’s miracles may come at His divine timing, be it healing or any other prayer request.
