"Excruciating pain caused by two slipped discs!"

Answered Prayer #17553

Excruciating pain caused by two slipped discs! I had helped my Mother-In-Law to walk up some steps, she put her whole weight on me.  We went to see a chiropractor and an osteopath, who couldn't help. A few weeks later I had an MRI scan which showed the slipped discs and no fluid around my neck. The consultant suggested an operation which he stated may or may not work. The long term prognosis wasn't good and I frequently had pins and needles down my arms and sometimes in my hands. He warned me that as I had no fluid around my neck I was also in danger of being paralysed if I had a fall. I couldn't sleep, I was on high doses of pain killers to alleviate my pain.

After three months of excruciating pain, and very little sleep, on Good Friday, I went to a church service, I cried all the way through, the church service, afterwards they prayed for me, at that point I wasn't aware of any change in my condition. My husband and I felt we should go to Ffald-y-Brenin in West Wales, to ask for prayer for healing. Two weeks later God spoke to me and told me to halve my medication, the next day God told me to stop my medication. Miraculously, I had no side effects from giving up the medication and my pain wasn't so acute. We went back to Ffald-y-Brenin two weeks later and I asked for prayer again, I knew that God wanted me to be healed completely, the people praying for me said we need to keep praying until your pain has gone but I just knew that I would be healed. The next day I woke up and realised that I no longer had any pain!

God took all my pain away completely and every time I feel a twinge it reminds me to say 'Thank you to God for his wonderful healing power' it is now four years later and I have been well ever since! I am so..... thankful to God!

During my illness I had started to play the harp, it was the only thing I could do, I never would have had time to practice if I had been well!
