It was a Wednesday when I came back to work, and I still did not have the energy to work all morning. I was just really down. Then a little before 1:30, while changing the audio program in the iPod closet, my supervisor asked me if she could pray for my son and me. I said “please do!” She began to pray, and I also began to pray myself. While we continued to pray all of a sudden, I felt a feeling unexplainable: I felt God taking over. I cried while we prayed with tears of pure happiness. A few minutes later, as I was walking in the hall to go print out some papers in the office, my supervisor told me, “you look better.” When she told me that, it put a real big smile on my face. By the time I came back from the office I went to my supervisor, and I told her, “Robin, I feel well.” I felt great, honestly!
Then suddenly the time was 3:30. I felt like the time actually began to go quicker. When I left work, excited that I felt better, my mom and my son were in the parking lot waiting for me, and when I opened the door to get in the car, my son shouted out “Momma,” with a huge smile on his face. I looked at him and said “Jacob,” and then I looked at my mom and asked her “Mom has he been feeling good all day?” My mom told me, “No, just now he is better.” At that moment I honestly just wanted to get my son out of his car seat and hug him. I also wanted to take him to my supervisor to show her because honestly, he looked GREAT!! And at that moment I realized that my prayer was answered, and both my son and I were healed.
I began to pray more after this healing. The next week after my healing, my friend was at my house and told me that she had been having a headache all day, and she asked me if I had some Advil. I talked to her and asked, “Can I pray for you instead of you turning to the medicine?” She said sure, so I told her to pray for herself as well. I began to pray for her, and in a short time I asked her how she was feeling. She told me that she didn’t have a headache anymore.
My whole life I never had really prayed before. I would only turn to God and pray when something was wrong, so every time I would pray, I felt like God was not listening, because I would only pray when I needed Him. Now I catch my self waking up in the morning and thanking God for another day. I thank Him for having a roof over my head, food, a job, a healthy family, and I tell God how important He is to me!
