An Epileptic Woman’s Faith

 By Deborah Ann Bataller

For nearly 15 agonizing years, Leslie suffered from epilepsy. The torturesome illness, with its sudden, involuntary and excruciating seizures, deprived her of a normal life.

But Leslie kept her hopes up, praying that one day, healing would come.


Leslie with her husband and children

A mother of three young kids and a home-based writer, Leslie had difficulty performing daily tasks and fulfilling her role as a mom.

“Most of the time, the seizures happen at night so I usually lack sleep.  As a result, I easily get grumpy and I would vent out my anger on my kids.”

In July 2013, Leslie’s seizures became more frequent and lasted longer than usual.  “For two weeks, I had uncontrollable seizures in the evening. Those nights were the worst,” she said.

Faith in Action

A long-time viewer of The 700 Club Asia, Leslie finds comfort in watching the testimonies featured on the show and joining the hosts in praying every night.

Finally, the night that Leslie had been waiting for came. “I heard Peter [Kairuz] praying for a woman suffering from epilepsy and right that moment, I claimed the healing!” she exclaimed.

“When we woke up the next morning, my husband and I couldn’t believe that I did not have any seizures! It was the first time I slept that well in years! I was so happy because I knew that I was healed!” shared Leslie.  Since that night, Leslie has not had epilepsy attacks.

“Through The 700 Club Asia, I experienced God’s wonderful miracle. I thank God for hearing my prayers. It really pays off to keep your faith even when it seems hard to do so.”

  • I’m really inspired by this miraculous healing testimony. I also had an episode of seizure during my hospital confinement last March 2005. I was placed in the ICU for 3 days and stayed in the hospital for 11 days. MRA and MRI was done and the doctors found out that there was somewhat like hemangioma in my brain. My brothers and sisters in Christ prayed for me. Because of prayers I also experienced God’s wonderful miracle and healing. I didn’t have any episode of seizure since I was discharged from the hospital and for more than 8 years now. I thank God for hearing my prayers. I will always praise and thank Him for my complete recovery and healing. God is really good all the time.

    • Cora, we are blessed that you were inspired thru that testimony and also thank you for sharing us your testimony. May God’s blessings continually fill your life and family. God bless you!

  • Thank you for sharing this. It gives me hope that one day God will heal me. I have been diagnosed of Syncope. My doctor say it’s a life long sickness. It’s a problem on my Autonomous nervous system. I can’t stand for long periods of time. I will collapse/ faint if ever I do. I had to walk fast and avoid standing and sitting as well for longer periods. I feel like fainting everyday. Although I look normal at first sight, my life has never been the same for almost 2 years now. I had have an issue with my cervical spine- disc protrusions. But doctor say I need not worry about it for now. I just need to avoid carrying heavy things, even my bany. This story gives me hope. I pray one day God will heal me so I can function better as a mom to my kids and husband.

    Another testimony for God’s goodness and faithfulness..God is so really good and He’s faithful to His words…i pray also that one of this days my sister who’s cancer patient brain tumors will be healed also…I know He already healed my sister and the tumors are already gone…just waiting for that moment when we come to hospital for MRI I know the result will be cleared. I ‘ll claim the verses in Jer.17:14,Ex.15:26 and Jer.30:17 and Mark 11:24

  • fernando m. dizon

    Praise The Lord for this testimony. I have a daughter who’s been afflicted with the same illness for almost 3 years now (she is 19 years old). While I write this, I just picked her up from school because she had a seizure. As her parents, our hearts breaks everytime she has an episode. But we know that God is always good and faithful. We know that one day our daughter will also be seizure free.
    I really got encouraged by this testimony.
    God bless!
