In 2014, my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 uterine cancer. After about a year of treatment, she was declared cancer free. Everything seemed fine, until she started experiencing unbearable stomach pain. The pain came at random and lasted for hours. It got worse as the hours passed and faded only after she vomited. As you can imagine, this was extremely hard to watch. Every time we consulted her doctors, they told us that it was a lasting effect of her cancer. According to them, nothing could be done. This went on and on…then, God moved.
Three weeks ago, my mom had another episode; as usual, she was writhing in pain. There was no sign that her pain would subside any time soon, but still, she prayed continuously. My decided to join her in prayer and it was then that He heard a voice from within. “Give a command and the pain will leave her,” the voice said. My father was shocked, as he had never experienced anything like that in his life. Certain that he was hearing the voice of the Lord, my father commanded the pain to leave, in the name of Jesus. Immediately, my mother fell into a deep sleep. After 15 minutes, she woke up to report that she had no pain and could feel the peaceful aura of God’s presence around her. She is pain-free to this day.
Through this great miracle, the Lord reminded my family of His power, love, and mercy. God is greater than all of our struggles; trust that His will will be done. Even when we walk through the darkest valley, the Lord is with us. All we need to do is to walk by faith, not by sight. No matter your circumstances, persist in prayer. As I’ve recently learned, one tiny prayer can change your life.
“Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:19-2
