Don’t Stop Praying!
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. — JAMES 5:16
In the spring of 1953, I was preaching in Dallas, Texas, and two gentlemen came up to me and said, “Brother Hagin, I don’t know whether you heard about it or not, but about two years ago, some of our young people were in an automobile accident. A young woman’s back was broken in two places and her neck was also broken.”
All across town, people prayed for this young woman. One doctor said, “You should just leave her alone and let her die. [He realized that the people’s prayers were holding her here.] We don’t think she will ever regain consciousness. And even if she does, she won’t know anything. Her mind will not function right, and she will be like a vegetable.”
But the people just couldn’t give up on her. They kept praying. Eventually, she revived and her mind was clear. She spent a year in the hospital and then went to therapy. She finally regained some use of the upper part of her body. And for another year, she had been at home in a hospital bed. She couldn’t rise up. Someone had to crank her bed to a sitting position. She couldn’t lift her body up on her own. She could use her hands a little, but not much.
Confession: The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. I continue to pray for my loved ones and for those I know who need healing. God is faithful to answer my prayers!
