Real Life Stories

It’s often both interesting and encouraging to find out about the real-life experiences of other people who have come to discover for themselves that God is very real and able to make positive changes in their lives.

We’ll be posting some fascinating stories here from people whose lives have been radically changed for the better.


Why I know God heals today

- John R

I don’t know why every person who prays doesn’t get healed but I do know that God healed me.  Here’s what happened.

For some years I suffered from recurring migraines; every time the weather changed resulted in a blinding headache.  In England that’s often!

It so happened that we moved from the UK to Zambia which is in central southern Africa.  The weather was very different – eight to nine months completely dry and a three to four month period of rains.  I’m not sure if it was because of the more stable nature of the weather or the fact that Zambia is three thousand feet above sea level, however, the fact was that my migraines ceased all the time we were there – six years.

When we returned to the UK the really bad headaches immediately started again every time the weather changed.  As you can imagine, I was imploring the Lord to get rid of them for me.  In the summer, I attended a big church event in a marquee and a chap was preaching and then praying for folk to be healed of various things.  One of the things he said God wanted to heal was migraines.  I actually had a thumping one going at the time and shot up out of my seat thinking “I’m not going to miss this!” and went to the front of the meeting for prayer.  As I walked forward I could feel my headache receding.  When the preacher put his hands on my head and prayed for me I felt the bones in my head move and click into a different position.  From that moment on – apart from the odd, very occasional, mild headache with a cold – I have not had another migraine and that is some years ago now.  So I’m convinced – if God did it for me He can do it for you!
