Several years ago, I was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis (a chronic autoimmune disorder characterized by muscular weakness). It started with weak eyelids, and I couldn’t open my eyes fully. This made me look as if I was drunk or doped up on drugs. I was told that in the advanced stages, I could lose my ability to walk and eventually not be able to swallow.
An eye specialist and 2 neurosurgeons confirmed the diagnosis. There is no known cure for the condition and the doctors told me they could only help delay its progression and manage the symptoms with lifelong medication. I cried and found it hard to trust God for healing.
However, my husband and I continued to listen to Pastor Prince’s sermons in church and while commuting to work every day.
My husband would sit me down every night to pray for healing, and we would partake of the holy Communion together. In spite of my fears, I found great comfort each time we partook of the holy Communion. Some days I had no words to pray, and he would encourage me to repeat after him, giving thanks to God for the priceless and powerful sacrifice of Jesus at Calvary. We claimed God’s promises in Psalm 23 that we would have no lack and that we would lead healthy and fruitful lives.
Two days before my appointment with the neurosurgeon, I was taken off all my medication. To our surprise, the neurosurgeon noticed that my eyelids were not drooping. He next asked me to stand so he could check my muscle strength. Then looking perplexed, he asked if I had stopped taking the medication. When I said yes, he commented that without medication for more than 24 hours, it was impossible that my eyelids were not drooping. So he canceled the further tests that were to be conducted and confirmed that there were no symptoms of myasthenia gravis.
I was overjoyed and declared that I was healed by Christ Jesus! That was the last time I needed to see a doctor for myasthenia gravis. All glory be to God! My husband and I are so grateful for Pastor Prince’s ministry that has opened our eyes and ears to the wonderful gospel of grace.
