Prayers Saved a Boy’s Life

We suffered our toughest blow when my son Auswald was hospitalized. He had an appendectomy, and after three days we noticed that he was no longer excreting. His surgery had a complication.  

I was filled with pity whenever I look at my child. He can’t eat, so his weight dropped and his body sagged. For five days, Auswald’s abdomen swelled and he was in a lot of pain. The doctor said if my son’s condition won’t improve, he will be fed through a tube inserted in his mouth.

That was the time that I almost want to give up. But I was reminded of the Bible verses they show on The 700 Club Asia at the end of every episode.

One is Matthew 7:7-8: “Ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks will receive, and anyone who seeks will find, and the door will be opened to those who knock.” Also, Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.”

I like these verses, but at first I didn’t know what they really mean. But I began to understand as I prayed for my son to recover. I said, Lord, I know everything happens according to Your will. If this is Your will, then let it be done.

I remember one night praying inside the restroom. I prayed, Lord, all my son needs to do is to excrete. Is there anything else we need to do? It was a weird prayer, but for me and my husband, it was very important. Little did I know that my husband called The 700 Club Counseling Center and was also praying with the counselors on the phone.

The next morning, my son finally excreted! My husband helped him out in the restroom. That means his intestines have finally normalized. He was healed!

I believe that was God’s test of faith. Our prayers meant life for my son. Praise God!
