Battling One Disease After the Other—Is Healing Still Possible?

After all the pain she went through, Haidie Columna can answer a resounding “Yes!” to this question. Be encouraged with her story.

Haidie was pregnant with her second child when she faced a life-threatening battle in the form of uterine polyps.

“Even a miniscule cough or sneeze made me bleed. There were moments when I thought the baby in my womb died because of the intense bleeding,” Haidie recounted.

Her worries about her delicate pregnancy were aggravated with all the costly medications she had to take.

But, the most agonizing part was that Haidie had to battle her sickness without her husband because he was working overseas.

Have you been through a miserable situation like hers?

Haidie was crying out to God when she came across her favorite inspirational TV program, The 700 Club Asia.

“I was encouraged with the story of a pregnant woman who was diagnosed with cancer. She trusted God for her healing,” she shared.

The woman’s testimony filled Haidie’s heart with hope that God would preserve her son.

And He did.

Haidie gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and her uterine polyps miraculously went away.

Haidie trusted God wholeheartedly, and He did not fail her. Would you do the same?

But, just when Haidie thought her struggles are over, another adversity came that test her faith.

She was diagnosed with appendicitis and had to undergo surgery.

If you were in Haidie’s position, how would you feel and what would you do?

She and her husband knew they needed a weapon as they walk through another trying time—prayer. So, they called the CBN Asia Prayer Center to seek encouragement.

Prayer works!

Haidie had a successful surgery. She witnessed God’s favor in every step of the way.

“The Lord sent doctors that are strong in the faith! And we only had to pay a smaller amount for the whole surgery,” she joyfully narrated.

Haidie’s story of healing is a beautiful testament of God’s boundless grace overflowing in the lives of those who trust Him.

And she wants to encourage you with Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:33:

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Living under God’s boundless grace and unfailing love starts by knowing Jesus. Receive Him in your heart today!

Are You Praying for Healing?

If you are, then be encouraged by how God healed the son of Luvie Liao.

As any mother who loves and cares for her children, it was a nightmare for Luvie to see her son Ken in the brink of death, fighting for his life.

Luvie was already worried when Ken started feeling sick. His fever got so bad that he was delirious already. When Luvie checked, his temperature had already spiked up to 40°C! She had to rush him to the hospital fast!

Nearly out of her mind with worry, and clueless of what was happening to her son, Luvie waited for the results of Ken’s tests. Being in a hospital with sick and dying people didn’t assure Luvie at all.

A doctor finally went out to meet her at the waiting room and confirmed that her son has a severe case of the Dengue Virus II.

Luvie’s heart sank.

As the days went by, she watched her son, whom she had never even allowed to be bitten by bugs or mosquitoes, lay on a hospital bed, weak and helpless. He wasn’t getting better; in fact his sickness was becoming even worse.

Ken was in a critical condition.

Ken’s platelet count dropped. He bled from his nose and gums. Luvie watched helplessly as her son curled up from the pain in his stomach. He needed seven bags of blood, which they had no idea where they were going to get.

“I couldn’t bear to look at him. It was painful as a mother to see my child in that situation,” Luvie recalled.

It was a dark and devastating time for Luvie and her husband. The costs for Ken’s hospitalization piled up each day. They needed 25,000 pesos for an urgent transfusion. Seeing Ken almost lifeless on his bed broke their heart. They didn’t know where to turn to anymore.

Fortunately, they turned the television on and chanced upon The 700 Club Asia. Desperate and searching for any help and reassurance, Luvie and her husband joined the hosts’ prayer.

To their amazement, the hosts’ specific words were, “There’s a mother watching now, and she’s so concerned about her son who has dengue. The Lord is touching your son. As you are crying out to Him, He is raising the count of your son’s platelets. He’s being healed completely.”

Crying as she prayed, Luvie felt something divine touch the back of her bowed head.

In that moment, in front of the television with her husband, she believed and claimed that Ken was already healed.

As immediately as the following day, the doctors confirmed that Ken’s platelets has risen back to the normal levels, and he was generally doing better. They pronounced that he could already be discharged and leave the hospital because he was finally healed!

“Instant,” as Luvie described it. She came to realize that the Lord’s help is always available. She only needed to pray hard and ask for God’s intervention on all the things happening in their lives.

Their son Ken came home healed and whole from his brush from death. And this was the starting ground of Luvie’s faith in Jesus Christ. From then on, she became a partner of The 700 Club Asia. She continues to trust God’s healing and provision every step of the way.

“I am not as scared as I was before because I was able to build my faith. The Lord showed me that nothing is impossible when you believe in Him,” Luvie shared.

Are you also praying for healing? Did Luvie’s story give you hope?

The One with the Pandemic Friends: 5 Tips to Keep Healthy Friendships Right Now!

So, no one told you that ‘pandemic life’ was gonna be this way.

If only all friendships could play out like the ones in sitcoms! You all live next door to each other, you can spend plenty of time together while drinking coffee and having long, intimate conversations.

Sadly, we don’t live in a sitcom. In real life, keeping friendships can require a lot of work – even more so during the pandemic.

No worries! Here are some tips that can help you deepen your relationships and keep healthy friendships during the pandemic:

The One with the Pandemic Friends: 5 Tips to Keep Healthy Friendships Right Now!

The one where you reach out

So, your friends are not reaching out to you, and you feel that they have abandoned you?

Now is not the time to test your friends! Everyone’s going through something, and it is best to extend grace during these trying times. Also, it wouldn’t hurt if you’re the first one to reach out and ask how your friends are holding up.

Shoot them a message, initiate a video call, and work hard to try to see them – while maintaining safety measures. Be present, says The Mental Health Foundation. You would be amazed how your simple gesture can make a huge impact on your friendship.

The One with the Pandemic Friends: 5 Tips to Keep Healthy Friendships Right Now!

The one where you ask questions and actively listen

Now that you’ve gotten in touch with your friends, what do you talk about? Break the ice! Ask questions!

Ask them how they are doing in their job or online classes, how they’re coping with the new normal, then let them fill you in. Asking friends how they feel and actively listening to their response are special moves.

Likewise, a big key to friendship is self-disclosure, says Psychology professor Tracy Gleason, so show that you can also be open and vulnerable around your friends.

The one where you accept changes in your friendships

One thing you might notice as you talk with your friends is that many things changed in their life, especially during the pandemic.

Pandemic or not, change is natural. Life happens. People outgrow some things they used to value while trying to cope with the new normal. They can make decisions even if they don’t align with your beliefs anymore. They can even make new friends.

Try not to focus on the differences you now have with each other. Instead, focus on your shared experiences. Choose to see these changes through the lens of acceptance and love.

The one where you celebrate milestones

Do you rarely get a chance to see your friend?

Then special events like birthdays, weddings, or graduations can be perfect opportunities to reconnect, catch up, and celebrate! Marking these significant life changes is important, PsychCentral affirms.

Most people get life updates about their friends from social media, but the details and the big and small talks that make up your friendships can only be shared through one-on-one interactions. It’s also a chance to try something new together like a zoom celebration or stream movies virtually.

The One with the Pandemic Friends: 5 Tips to Keep Healthy Friendships Right Now!

The one where you pray for your friends

The pandemic is a universal experience, but it is also an individual experience. It has dramatically affected everyone – so everyone could use some encouragement – including your friends.

Pray for and with your friend. Ask them if they have prayer requests, and actually pray for them then and there. Allow God to comfort, protect, and direct your friends’ paths.

Lastly, ask God to strengthen your friendship and keep it healthy, as both of you dwell in His constant love.

“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other… Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” (Romans 12:10-12 NLT)

5 Inspiring Songs to Get You through the New Normal

What keeps you grounded during the pandemic?

If music brings you relief from the worry and stress these days, you are not alone.

The COVID-19 pandemic may have changed many aspects of our lives, but it didn’t take away the Filipinos’ love for music. If anything, more people have turned to music to find hope and comfort when times are challenging.

And when you find yourself feeling a bit down, here are 5 inspiring songs that will help you get through the blues, the new normal, and beyond:

Feeling hopeless? Listen to…

Kumapit — Yeng Constantino

“Kumapit ka

‘Di ka nag-iisa

‘Di mo man nakikita

Nandiyan S’ya sa ‘yo, sa iyong tabi.”

Sad? Stressed out? Scared about the future? Let OPM icon Yeng Constantino assure you that your pandemic blues are valid and it’s okay to be honest about them.

Kumapit is a solid reminder that God understands your worries, fears, and even anger during difficult seasons in life. When you feel hopeless, know that you can always cry out to God. Hold on to God’s hope and His hope will hold on to you.

Feeling tired? Listen to…

Magpahinga — Ben&Ben

“Ang sabi mo, “Dito ka lang sa ‘kin

Magpahinga muna, lalabanan din

Mga dambuhalang ‘di maubos na problema

Malapit na, pero ‘di rin kasalanang magpahinga.”

If you feel you  have been fighting and have been too strong for far too long, let Magpahinga assure you that it is okay to  rest and let your guard down.

Paired with a heart-tugging music video, folk pop band Ben&Ben sings about the importance of allowing yourself to breathe – and cry if you must. So take a deep breath, quiet your mind, and rest your weary heart.

Feeling lost and uncertain? Listen to…

It’s Okay — Clara Benin

“I cannot unsee what’s in front of me

Oh it’s all in front of me

Is it okay if I close my eyes? Is it okay if I take my time?

Is it okay if I close my eyes? Is it okay if I take my time?

Just for a little while, just for a little while.”

Tired of the alarming news you see on TV? Fed up with the negativity on your social media feed?

Rid yourself of the toxicity and listen to It’s Okay. Clara Benin has created a relatable, little hymn that will soothe your heart and ears. Take this time to close your eyes and breathe. Reflect on life – the good, the bad, and everything in between.

Feeling worried? Listen to…

Ikako — SB19

“O, sigurado, babangon tayo

Kaya’ng lahat, ikaw at ako

‘Wag kang susuko

Magkasama tayo

Hanggang sa dulo

Ikaw at ako.”

Internationally acclaimed boyband SB19 brings a quarantine anthem that conveys a hopeful message: When troubles seem overwhelming, you have the power to win any struggle.

Ikako, a portmanteau of the words ikaw at ako (you and I), is a wonderful reminder that as long as we are together, Pinoys can get through anything. Its cheerful music video shows the frontliners and the band members cooped up in their own homes – hopeful that the sun will shine again.

Feeling hurt? Listen to…

Maghihilom — JC Ronato

“Maghihilom din

Sa sakit at pagkabigo

Maghihilom din

Sa lahat ng dinaramdam ko

Maghihilom din

Sa aking paglapit Sa’yo

Maghihilom din ang aking puso.”

Baguio-based singer-songwriter JC Ronato has created a perfect hymn for people who are struggling, in pain, and in need of healing.

If you are looking for a breather, Maghihilom hits close to home as it acknowledges the tears and fears you may be enduring right now. A few beats after, JC delivers an impactful message: There is a loving God who can heal you. There is hope and light after all.

Stream Maghihilom on July 30 on Spotify, Apple, Deezer, and YouTube. Follow Reverb Worship PH on FacebookInstagram, and YouTube for more updates.

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

If you bruised your knees, they could heal fast.

An emotional wound, however, could linger for a very long time.

A broken relationship, a traumatic experience, or a limiting belief in yourself could all add weight to your emotional baggage. They are absolutely hard to deal with and they can prevent you from living a joy-filled life.

While healing from your emotional wounds is a challenging journey, remember that you have the power to change your story! Here are 5 tips to help you let go of your past and thrive your way through emotional healing:

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

1. Acknowledge your emotional wound

Do your emotional wounds hijack your creativity, productivity, and even the way you think? Perhaps it’s time to acknowledge and accept your pain.

Being honest to yourself and accepting that you have these painful wounds are powerful keys to your healing.

It doesn’t have to be a Level 10 kind of a pain to be called difficult – it could be the little things: a childhood memory, stress at work, hurtful words, or just day-by-day problems that have accumulated and affect your mental health.

Today, have the courage to admit out loud that something has affected you. Have more “courageous conversations” with yourself and with other people as well.

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

2. Find rest and relief

How do you find rest? How often do you rest?

If you had a hard time answering those questions, then it is time to take a break from your pain and find relief, Psychology Today suggests.

Some people find relief in arts or sports, others feel rested when they travel or engage with nature. There are also people who find rest and relief from their wounds when they start to forgive.

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

3. Seek help

Someone is in deep anguish since he lost his job amid a pandemic. He’s been holding on to that emotional wound for months, to the point that he cannot eat nor sleep. But when people ask him how he is doing, his answer would always be: “I am fine.”

His situation sounds familiar, right?

Most people have been like Someone in one way or another – saying that they are fine even when they’re not.

You need some time alone to heal from your emotional wounds, but it is also important to allow other people to help you. Do not hesitate to reach out to your trusted friend or family member, or even seek support from mental health professionals.

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

4. Understand and learn from your experience

Now that the event is over, perhaps, you can look at the situation from a more logical perspective?

After going through a traumatic event, a stressful situation, or any event that caused your emotional wound, it is likely that you only thought of that experience in one way.

Try to understand your situation more clearly and consider the reality above any assumptions that you might have been making this whole time. What was true? What was not? How did it play out in the end? What did you learn from the experience? Discover new perspectives that you can get from that experience.

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

5. Allow God to heal you

You cannot change your past; it will remain the same. What you can change is how you look back on your past. It might be difficult to let go and heal deep emotional wounds but with Jesus, you will get there.

Your Heavenly Father can lift you up (Psalms 146:8), strengthen you (Isaiah 41:10), and heal your emotional wounds (2 Kings 20:5). Bring your burden to God and allow Him to help you transform your life for the better.

As Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Move Beyond Your Emotional Wounds! Here are 5 Tips for Emotional Healing

Are you struggling to heal from your emotional wounds?

Let JC Ronato’s newest single, Maghihilom, comfort you! Produced by CBN Asia’s music arm Reverb Worship PH, this song will inspire you that true restoration and healing come from God. Maghihilom will hit the airwaves this July. Follow Reverb Worship PH on FacebookInstagram, and YouTube for more updates.

Can You Still Trust God to Heal You from Brokenness?

Broken.

Abused.

Neglected.

Violated.

These are the words that resonated deeply in Aika’s mind.

They say time heals all wounds. But for Aika, there’s really no timetable for healing and recovering from the sexual abuse she suffered before.

She was just 12 years old.

Too young to deal with pain and shame, Aika kept the abuse all to herself. But the abuse went on from months to years until it became a normal thing for her.

The traumatic and life-altering experience resulted in Aika’s distorted view on love and relationships.

“I don’t like men. I don’t feel comfortable around them or being close to them.”

It started with hate towards men, then one thing led to another. She got hooked on pornography, drinking, and she started exploring relationships with the same sex.

Aika felt that there was a void she needed to fill. For her, love was the answer.

But looking for love in all the wrong places put Aika in a position of getting hurt and broken too easily.

So, she decided to end her latest relationship and focus on a networking business.

But like her relationships, her business venture also failed. Completely broken, depressed, and at her lowest point, Aika contemplated on ending her life.

Are you feeling like you’re at the end of your rope just like how Aika felt? Be encouraged that there is hope at the end of your sufferings.

“During the time that I was so down and I wanted to end my life, I chanced upon the 700 Club Asia and saw the testimony of young people like me. I said, ‘Lord, it is true, there is still a chance. You can change people’s lives.’”

This inspired her to travel to Manila and seek more of who God is and to look for the church featured on the testimony she saw.

“I didn’t expect them to welcome me, but they did. They appreciated who I am. I knew it wasn’t an accident that the preaching that day was about The Call. I knew God was calling me.”

The invitation was only the beginning of God’s greater plan for her. That day, she surrendered everything to God and embraced her new life in Christ.

“One day I woke up like a new person. I felt like I was born again. God has completely wiped away the mess in my life.”

And if this remained true for Aika, it will also be true for you. God indeed has the power to change your life.

Aika continued attending the church and has found spiritual mentors to help her in her faith journey. She also continued to watch The 700 Club Asia and found inspiration from real-life testimonies of people whose lives have been changed just like her.

“It really is a big help to know that the only thing we need is to have a relationship with the Lord. It’s not enough that we only know His name.”

God continued to use Aika in ministering to young people. He has also restored her relationship with her family and has blessed her to work in Dubai. Together with other OFWs, they established a church to serve and reach more people in need to hear God’s word.

“To people like me, who experienced the same situation, remember, God will fight for you, you only need to be still. God really has a purpose for everything, and He is using different situations where You will meet Him. He only wants you to have a relationship with Him so He can show you the love that only He is capable of giving,” she ended.

May Aika’s testimony be a reminder to you that no matter how dark your past was, and no matter how broken you were before, God will meet you where you are and His light will shine through your brokenness.

Like Aika, you too can experience healing and a fresh start.

Do you also want to be healed and be transformed by God’s amazing power? Surrender everything to God and trust in His process and timing.

Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism?

Yes, and if you believe in God’s healing, then you will receive. 

This is what Daisy Callanta and her son Josiah witnessed in their lives. 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_1

Just like all children, Josiah was born an exceptional boy. But when he stopped talking and responding when his parents called his name at the age of 2, Daisy knew that something was wrong. 

They took him to a doctor and in just 5 minutes, they found out that their worst fears have now become a fact. Josiah was diagnosed with Autism, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Pervasive Development Delay (PDD). 

They were told that Josiah was “zero to non-functional”. They were told there was no cure. 

“At first I was angry at myself,” Daisy recalled. “I was angry at my husband, at the world and I was angry at God. I said if God really exists and He’s loving and kind, why would such a loving, cute boy be exceptional, then suddenly not? It just doesn’t make sense.” 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_2

Hoping to find some sense into what’s happening to her beloved son, Daisy buried herself into research and started looking for support groups. But the more she discovered about autism, the more she felt hopeless and alone. 

Soon after, the marriage of Daisy and her husband suffered. He sought comfort in the arms of another woman and even became physically abusive to his wife. Their eldest, on the other hand, tried to find comfort from his friends and became rebellious for a while. 

Daisy found nowhere to turn to while all these were happening at the same time. 

“I was tired of fighting,” she recalled. 

Like Daisy, have you ever found yourself in a seemingly hopeless situation? Where do you seek strength in the midst of uncertainty? 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_3

Amidst the hopelessness and anger, Daisy encountered the transforming love of God. Daisy knew that after attending a prayer gathering, God touched her heart and helped her forgive her husband.  

“The Lord showed me that love and forgiveness are the keys for the divine kingdom to open. So when I started being close to the Lord, the battle now is on bended knees,” she said. 

Daisy and her husband sought counseling, anger management sessions, and spiritual advice left and right to restore their family. She allowed herself to forgive and heal. She believed that God could heal Josiah from autism. 

Little did she know, her personal encounter with Jesus will lead to a supernatural experience. 

Six days after her encounter, God led Daisy to pray over her kids. But as she softly laid her hands on Josiah to pray, his reaction shocked her. 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_4

“I touched him lightly, but he suddenly pushed me and said, ‘You’re hurting me don’t touch me!’ The Lord said, ‘Just touch because there’s a spirit of infirmity.’ So I started praying and praying, but Josiah was fighting it off!” Daisy said. 

The mother also testified that while praying, they heard a loud thud on their roof and shaking of their window, as if somebody wanted to get in. Knowing that the enemy is at work, Daisy continued to lay her hands on Josiah, and fervently prayed from dusk till dawn. 

The next morning, miracles started to unfold before their eyes. 

“God spoke audibly to me, ‘Daisy, Josiah is healed. Autism is not from me, it’s from the enemy. All sicknesses came from the enemy to put sicknesses to the lives of many,’” Daisy shared. 

Boldly believing in the power of Jesus, Daisy texted her son’s specialist, “Think me crazy, but the Lord just told me Josiah’s healed and I receive it in faith.” 

To which the specialist affirmed medically, delivering the great news that there is no trace of autism at all in Josiah. 

It was a miracle, and they’re up for another one. At five years old, Josiah suddenly spoke. 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_5

Daisy recalls the scene vividly, “We were in a cable car and he saw birds flying. He pointed and flapped his hands. We were all surprised because Josiah spoke all of a sudden, ‘Mommy, look! Birds are flying.’ 

It was a joyous moment for their whole family. From zero to non-functional, Josiah became highly functional. When asked about his healing journey, Josiah answered, “I remember the day when I got healed. I was feeling happy.” 

He is now living proof that there is no sickness nor situation that the Lord could not carry. A living proof that God is bigger than autism. 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_6

Being a witness of God’s supernatural healing, Daisy was moved to be an evangelist and founded Jesus HUGS Ministries, an NGO which aims to show God’s love to people and communities. 

If you or your loved one is on the autism spectrum, Daisy has a message for you. 

“There’s nothing impossible with the Lord. Never lose hope because, in God, there is hope. If we believe in faith that there is healing, healing can be received. The healing is not about the Lord not wanting to give, it’s about us not being able to receive.” 

04262021_Do You Believe that God is Bigger than Autism_7

Do you find it hard to believe that God is bigger than autism? 

This Autism Awareness Month, know that there is supernatural power in the name of Jesus! Pray and believe that He loves and cares for you. Surrender and see that you will experience His goodness personally! 

“But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26 ESV) 

If you or your loved one is on the autism spectrum, it would be our joy to pray for you. Call the CBN Asia Prayer Center at 8-737-0-700 or send your prayer requests to our Facebook page.

How do You Pray for Healing?

How do you pray for the sick? 

You might have uttered a couple of healing prayers for a sick loved one or even prayed them for yourself. But is there a way to make your prayer more effective? 

Discover how you can pray for healing today, from CBN Asia’s Holy Week special: Tanikala presents Isa Pang Hiling: 

04062021_How do You Pray for Healing_1

1. Ask God for help

JarolynMoulder, played by actress Lara Quigaman-Alcaraz, saw her world turn upside down when her husband and son suffered from COVID-19. Although she believes that she is a strong person, she surrendered everything to God in that particular situation and covered their family in prayers. 

Like Carolyn, acknowledge that God is in control of everything. Humble yourself before Him and ask for His help. Allow God’s mercy to surround you and your loved one, and watch healing unfold before your eyes. 

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV) 

04062021_How do You Pray for Healing_2

2. Pray in the name of Jesus

If you know God’s character, you know that He wants to heal and restore people. Your Heavenly Father is the Lord who heals (Exodus 15:26). 

In Isa Pang Hiling, Jarolyn believed that there is power in the name of Jesus, so she kept on praying in His name. She wanted her beloved son to be spared from death, and God heard her constant prayers. 

You have an assurance that Jesus will do whatever you ask in His name (John 14:13). So whenever and wherever you are, pray in faith – and pray in His mighty name! 

04062021_How do You Pray for Healing_3

3. Seek God, not the reward 

Who wants a healing miracle? 

Of course, you want to see your loved one be miraculously healed from COVID-19, or whatever sickness they may have. Of course, you too, would love to experience God’s healing prowess. 

Although it’s true that God rewards those who earnestly seek him (Hebrews 11:6), He wants you to focus on Him and not on the reward. 

Focus on the Healer, not the healing. Focus on the Miracle-worker, not the miracle. 

04062021_How do You Pray for Healing_4

4. Pray for spiritual healing

All throughout their COVID-19 battle, Jarolyn sought God. She praised God for the healing they received, but the most important restoration God bestowed to their family is spiritual healing. 

While you are concerned about the physical healing of your loved one, God is more concerned about their spiritual healing. After all, everyone will soon perish, but the spirit will return to God. 

04062021_How do You Pray for Healing_5

So when you pray for your loved one’s physical healing, pray for their heart and soul, too. Pray that God uses their physical restoration to open the door for their spiritual restoration.  

Pray that their healing journey will be a journey of discovering the saving love of Jesus, the ultimate healer.

Do Miraculous Healings Still Happen Today?

Inutile. Hopeless. Better off dead.

These are the words that Joseline Adversalo used to describe herself when she found out that she has rheumatic heart disease.

Joseline lost hope and spiraled into depression when she learned that apart from the serious disease that damaged her heart’s valve, she also has a growing cyst on her chest. Their family felt like they were drowning in financial problems on top of her health challenge. They were faced with overwhelming and seemingly unending problems.

This is when Joseline contemplated suicide to end her miseries. She was deceived into thinking that, maybe, a bottle of muriatic acid could stop all the physical and emotional pain she experiences.

“I did not know what to do then. I lost hope because my problems came all at the same time. There were times that I wanted to kill myself because I felt I was inutile; I could not take it any longer. I felt so useless, Joseline recalled.

Like Joseline, have you ever felt so helpless in life? Where do you find hope?

Amid her helplessness and anguish, Joseline saw a sliver of hope. A concerned friend came and advised her to watch The 700 Club Asia to be inspired by stories of people who are miraculously healed by God.

“My friend was right. When I watched The 700 Club Asiathe hosts prayed for people who have cysts. joined the hosts in praying and claimed it when they said that God has already healed me, Joseline shared. 

Right after the prayer, Joseline felt the instant relief and peace that overflowed in her heart. While she prayed for miracles, she grew deeper in faith and believed that she will experience them, too.

God did not disappoint Joseline. He proved that miracles still happen today, and He showed it in her life.

“I did not undergo any operation; I did not take any medicine. The instant healing of the cyst in my chest is God’s miracle,” she said, in awe of the unexplainable healing that she experienced after she prayed.

Because her cyst was already clearedit became possible for her to underwent heart surgery. God also surrounded Joseline with people who blessed her financially and supported her in prayers.

Heart mended and faith strengthened, Joseline discovered that nothing is impossible for those who believe in the power of Jesus.

Before, all I can do was cry about my problems. But now, my heart is full of thanksgiving and joy because God keeps on pouring blessings after blessings into my life,” Joseline ended.

Would you like to experience God’s miraculous healing, too?

If it happened to Joseline, it could also happen to you. Whatever sickness you may have right now, know that God’s healinfavors the faithful. As long as you believe that He can do wonders and miracles in your life, then He can bring it to fruition.

Do not give up on your miracle.

Surrender all your worries and claim the miraculous healing, blessings, and peace that God is offering to you today, just as how He promised in His Word.

“But now I will heal and mend them. I will make them whole and bless them with an abundance of peace and security. (Jeremiah 33:6 CEB)

09162020_If I Pray, Can God Heal my Loved One from COVID-19_4

If I Pray, Can God Heal my Loved One from COVID-19?

Deep inside Minda Donaire’s heart, she never believed that God could bring total healing for her daughter Jonalyn who tested positive for COVID-19.

Jonalyn flew to Saudi Arabia to be a domestic worker with hopes of providing a good future for her three children who are left in the care of her mother Minda

Fear started to plague Minda when in the midst of the outbreak, she lost all communications with her beloved daughter. 

After a week, she received the news that her daughter was put in quarantine after showing symptoms of the dreaded disease. Her world turned upside down when Jonalyn confirmed that she tested positive for COVID-19.

“It was so painful when my daughter told me‘Ma, please take care of my children. The ambulance is here already, Minda recalled. Since that callshe never again heard from Jonalyn. 

This left her paralyzed with fear. It was during this time that one of Minda’s grandchildren encouraged her to watch The 700 Club Asia. Their whole family watched the show and joined the hosts in prayer.

She also called the CBN Asia Prayer Center to ask for prayers.

I told the prayer counselor that I cannot contact my daughter and I do not know if she is still alive. I told her all my problems, and she prayed for me,” Minda said.

Just minutes after they prayed, Minda received a message from Jonalyn, who then assured her mother that she is safe in a hospital. Minda felt immediate relief. She literally jumped for joy and thanked God for hearing her prayers instantly, “I told her that I sought help from The 700 Club Asia in praying for her.”

However, despite hearing from her daughter, Minda still felt doubtful that God would miraculously heal Jonalyn from COVID-19 – until she opened her Bible and stumbled upon God’s Word in Jeremiah 33:3:

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

The next day, the hospital declared that Jonalyn was COVID-negative – a miracle that both Jonalyn and Minda could not fathom.

Even though she wrestled with doubt at first, Minda learned that God’s Word can defeat fear and disbelief.

“Calling the Prayer Center was a huge help for me. They stood with me in prayers. Indeed, Jesus Christ is the best healer!” Minda ended.

Do you also doubt that God can heal you or your loved one from COVID-19?

Be assured that when you call to God with all your heart, He is willing to help you overcome your doubtsBelieve that powerful, faithful prayers can bring instant answers!

He is willing to answer your prayers – loud and clear.
