Healed! An Answered Prayer

Healed! An Answered Prayer
by Danny Tariman

“Yes, I will restore you to health. I will heal your wounds. I, the LORD, affirm it!” (Jer 30:17)

For a few months, a good friend and cousin “Parekuy”, had been complaining of shortness of breath and frequent attacks of sudden weakening or fainting. He was diagnosed by medical doctors that his heart is ill, and that he needs heart-bypass operation.

The news triggered worries and anxieties, not only to his immediate family, but to his ‘extended family’ – and this includes us.

The family offered prayers for him, and invoke the Name of Jesus to bring healing upon him and that the Lord will provide for his needs for an expensive heart operation.

Last Thursday, he went “through the knife”. A team of heart surgeons performed quadruple bypass operation on him for almost 8 long hours! His wife had been updating me every now and then. We continued to storm the heavens with our prayers.

“I am the one who gives them reason to celebrate…” says the LORD, “and I will heal them.” (Isaiah 59:19)

Finally, at about half-past 4 in the afternoon, his operation was completed. It was a success! Praise be to God! He was immediately wheeled to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Heart Center for recovery and close monitoring.

Prayers were continually offered, while his family waited outside the ICU. And again, praise the Lord! His recovery was quick, he was transferred from ICU to a regular room last Sunday afternoon. His recuperation was impressive; he is able to talk and is in his full senses!

“I was sick and you took care of me… and you visited me… I tell you the truth, just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me. “(Matthew 25:36, 45)

My family visited him the Sunday evening following his surgery. We were very surprised! He can chat with us, can smile, and even crack some jokes! He had even eaten bread with us! Wow, we really thank the Lord for his speedy recovery!

Thank You LORD for hearing our prayers – for the successful heart operation and for the fast recovery, and for healing too!

“​​​​​​​Yes, I will restore you to health. ​​​​​​I will heal your wounds. ​​​​​​I, the LORD, affirm it!” (Jeremiah 30:17)

About 2 months ago, while on the driver’s seat, I stretched my arm a bit too far as I try to reach for an item at the back seat of the car. Little did I know that, that simple over-stretching would harm my arm.

Few days later, I noticed pain in my upper arm, near my shoulder.

And so I rested from my regular exercise, which include some weight lifting. After 2 weeks I resumed my routine exercise. I can still lift weights but I feel a bit of pain at a certain position. I just pass it off, thinking it will heal itself.

But the pain still persists. It is quite not a big deal, but I can feel the pain.

And so last weekend, I consulted a sports medicine specialist and I was diagnosed to have a “rotator cuff tendonitis”. I don’t really know what this is but the description is quite popular these days because boxing champion Manny Pacquiao recently had an injury in his rotator cuff.

But the LORD is my Healer! Yes, He is! He had promised in Jeremiah my “restoration to health”.

I believe in His word. My God is faithful.

The night that followed after seeing a medical doctor, I had my wife and two children pray-over me. They had laid their hands on me while my wife placed her hand on the exact spot where the pain was.

I claim God’s Word in Mark 16:18

“They will place their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Yes, I am healed. Even if I still feel the pain, I believe I am healed because the Word says so,

“By his bruises we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

My dear friend, do you or your love-ones need healing? Pray with me:

Lord, You are my Healer. I pray for Your healing power to touch me right now, as I claim Your word “by your wounds we are healed”, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Claim His word, release your faith, and believe.

Yes, we are healed!
