Out of the blue, a lightening strike, these are just two of the phrases that are used when we are affected by events beyond out control. The passage below is a true story from one of our parishioners who was affected in such a way but has recovered due to the power of faith and prayer.
It all started after a routine mammogram.
The hospital contacted me to ask if I could go for a second appointment.
During this time, I was told that I had a lump in my breast, which had to be promptly removed.
It was a huge shock as I felt so fit and well.
The operation was carried out, which was followed some weeks later by Radiotherapy.
I always put my trust in God, regardless of the situation.
Many people were praying for me during my confinement.
Because I had the time, I researched the effects of cancer, Radiotherapy, and also included Chemotherapy.
I searched the word of God to find a counterbalance in the many healing scriptures, then I put a prayer together.
Daily, I received the Eucharist and prayed my prayer before every session of Radiotherapy the results were miraculous, God healed me!
I had very little adverse effects from the surgery or the radiotherapy, hardly any soreness and only a small amount of discomfort, I experienced some tiredness but it only lasted for around 3 weeks after the Radiotherapy treatment.
My mammogram two years later was totally clear.
Since then, I have passed my prayer for the healing on too many people and received back wonderful stories of their healings and restoration
I thank God that through the adversity he never lets us down
Many blessings to you all, Ros Powell
