Healed from Food Sensitivities

Food is something we take for granted, myself included, until we suddenly can no longer eat common foods. For about two or three years, I suffered from a sudden and unexpected onslaught of food sensitivities, as my own body violently rejected the nourishment I'd previously eaten with no issues. A food allergy test showed I’d developed an allergy to eggs, pineapple, garlic, corn, kidney beans, coffee, cocoa, sesame seeds, cranberries, and yeast. It seemed those foods were in everything I wanted to eat and liked to eat. My life became agony three-times a day, with every meal. I lived in fear of the pain and eating something my body would react to, then waiting to find out if my body would object. I could no longer eat at restaurants (unless they could customize my order — which wasn't very often), or even share a dinner at a friend's house. I tried a regimented diet with no grains or dairy for 15-months. While it did help, it didn't rid me of the severe cramping, and the other, less desirable side-effects that go along with gastrointestinal distress, every time I tried to go back on any of those foods. For months, I cried out to God, praying that he would lead me and guide me as to what to do, so I could return to eating those foods that I had once enjoyed. I went to a naturopath who put me on some supplements, and I also went to Abundant Life Family Church for prayer when Kevin and Anne Durant were visiting in March of 2018. I had faith and declared I was healed in the name of Jesus. I began thanking the Lord for my healing. I didn't think about it anymore until, one day, I realized I'd eaten some food with garlic in it — with no cramping! I started to get excited, thinking of a life free from pain, to be able to enjoy food again. Little by little, I kept adding the foods I was sensitive to — all, with no adverse symptoms. No cramping. No pain. No fear. Praise God! I AM HEALED! Thank you, Jesus.

MRI Confirms a Healed Tailbone

Five months ago I was experiencing significant intestinal and tailbone pain; I was overwhelmed with fear, but I believed that God wanted me healed.  I went searching on the Internet for a church that believes it's always God's will to heal, and I found the healing Scriptures on the Abundant Life Family Church’s website.  I printed them out and began reading and confessing them, and I sent in a prayer request as well.  As the church stood with me, believing the report of the Lord that by His stripes I was healed, and as we stood on those Scriptures, we saw a clean report on the colonoscopy and stomach scope.  Two dear women prayed over me and saw my tailbone healed, confirmed by an MRI.  When the MRI revealed a mass in my lower abdomen that the doctor wasn't positive about, we continued to stand on God's Word, I fed on sermons about healing, and believed His report that I was healed.  Further tests revealed the mass was a cyst - God completely neutralized something satan meant to harm me.  I continue to stand with ALFC on the report of the Lord that the cyst will be gone, as with any other thing that satan sends at my body.  Praise God that His Word works and that He is the Healer!  And praise God that there are people and churches that believe what the Word says, that it's always His will for us to be healed!

Power of Prayer Overcomes an Infection

I had an infection in my body and broke out in a rash.  It got so bad that I went to the emergency room three times.  I had an allergic reaction to the medications I was taking.  I itched so badly I thought I would lose it, but my husband and I prayed until the infection finally began to leave my body.  I am praising God because we were able to get through this time by the power of prayer.

Doctor Confirms: Kidneys Healed

About two months ago I received a blood test report from my doctor which indicated that my kidney function was at or below 30-40%.  I immediately made an appointment with my doctor to determine the cause and indicated treatment for the  problem.  The office called me the day before the appointment to cancel and reschedule.  This continued for two more weeks of canceling and rescheduling of the appointment.  I had talked with Pastors about praying in agreement to heal the problem.  I was also getting irritated that I had not been able to go to the doctor and tell them that "there is nothing wrong with me".  I didn't realize at the time that the devil was trying to get me out of faith and into non-belief.  When I finally went to the doctor and was tested, my statement that there is nothing wrong with me was proven true.  God, in his infinite care, had healed me as we had prayed and kept believing.  I have since had another blood test which reconfirmed the perfect functioning of my kidney.  Faith is knowing in your heart, your inner being, that God can and will do what you are believing for.  Do not let your mind, which can and is invaded by the devil, get you out of believing and trusting in our omnipotent and loving God.

Back Pain Healed Through Agreement in Prayer

It was Saturday morning, October 26,2017.  I woke up with excruciating pain in my lower back.  Pain that paralyzed me and brought me to tears.  I couldn't move.  Staring at the ceiling, the first words that came out of my mouth "In the Name and by the Blood of Jesus I am healed and I rebuke this pain. I am a child of the living God and this pain does not belong to me.  As HE is so am I in this world. Jesus has no pain, neither should I"  I spent the day praising LORD for victory and confessing healing scriptures. Next day, Sunday, in church a handful of brothers and sisters prayed for me right there on the spot and came into agreement with God's word for my healing. I felt God's love through my church family. I went to work that Monday the 28th pain free.  Thank you all for standing in agreement with me and loving me the way you all did.  What a blessing to be at ALFC.  Freedom in so many ways.
