SELECTED STORY: EXCRUCIATING PAIN NOW GONE!

Abby Harris
Last year I suffered quite often with periods of stomach pain and chronic indigestion, particularly when I was stressed. I had lots of tests done in December 2013 because they were querying stomach cancer as I have had cancer previously.

I took some medication, which helped but didn't totally fix it, and I found out that I had gastritis.

During the church's two weeks of prayer in January I came to a Wednesday night meeting and a friend in the church prayed for me. I felt lots of heat in and on my stomach but wasn't sure what had happened. I did tell my friend that I had felt something though.

In February I met with the consultant at the hospital and we decided it was stress-related and when I got stressed the gastritis would flare up and I would take medication for 4-6 weeks to resolve this.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been extremely stressed and my stomach has been fine. I even felt brave enough to drink a glass of wine and this was fine too, whereas previously alcohol had been excruciating on my stomach.

I really want to encourage people that sometimes we know something has happened when we're prayed for, but even when we can't be certain what has happened, it doesn't mean that nothing has! I didn't know for certain I'd been healed at the time, but I do know it now!
