In September of 2012, Nera Mae White, who attends my Dad’s church in Flatwoods LA, had a knee problem. It had required corrective surgery six months before. However, her knee continued to give her problems. Her doctor said that it just needed time to heal. It had been over 6 months since her surgery, and she continued to have complications that hindered her ability to walk.
After her pain continued to worsen, her friends and family asked her to consider a second opinion. So, she went to another doctor, and he concluded that she had developed a tumor in her knee, causing more complications. The tumor grew into the size of a softball! THAT’S RIGHT – A SOFTBALL!
The doctor took a biopsy and found that it was a malignant tumor. She needed chemo and radiation, so she agreed to the treatments. However, the treatments did not have any effect on the tumor. She continued to be in horrific pain.
She came to the church and told Dad, “I have to have a touch from God!”
Dad had the church pray and fast one whole day. That night, they anointed her knee with oil, and prayed the prayer of faith. The tumor immediately disappeared! Her pain immediately left! AND she walked for the first time in about 6 months! Somebody ought to give God praise right here!! Glory!!…Her son, Gary, carried her back to the Doctor and he asked her where she had been to have the tumor removed! AND Gary said Doctor I have brought her to you numerous times and other Doctors too and it only took one trip to God to take care of it!! My Lord! Somebody ought to be dancing right NOW!
Take that devil! God is STILL IN THE HEALING BUSINESS IN 2012!!!
Whatever you need you can receive…Have Faith IN GOD!!!
In 1982, Becky Bryant was having pain in her abdomen area and went to see Dr Bowers in Leesville, LA. Dr Bowers told her that she had tumor growing in her female organs. It would have to be removed and she would not be able have any more children. She had three children already. She was visiting her father-in-law who was familiar with my Dad’s church in Flatwoods, LA. He told her that, if she would go to see Bro. Sanders and have the church pray, that God would heal her.
Bill Kittrell attended the church that I pastored in Ft Payne, AL. He was a school bus driver, and he also worked for one of the local judges. One day, Bill started having all the symptoms of a heart attack. He drove himself to the local hospital. By the time he got there, he had already turned bluish in color, and was immediately admitted.
Most of us desire the desire the “perfect will” of God in our lives. Knowing we are truly in His Will really does make a difference in how we perform.
I was evangelizing full time in 1982, was staying busy, and God was blessing. However, I felt that God had something else for me. Often in prayer, I asked the Lord, “What am I supposed to be doing?” I had been asked to assist a pastor in Montgomery, AL. This would have been, financially, a good choice with future opportunities. I could have easily remained an evangelist, for I was booked months ahead. I even felt that I could become a Home Missionary to Fort Payne, AL. Finally, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Wherever you go, and whatever you do, I will go with you.”
My wife and I were pastoring in the city of Fort Payne, AL in the 1980’s. We had a lady and her young son (Cindy and David Guffey) that started attending our church. One day, Cindy came to me with a request for her Father-In-Law, Freelon Guffey, who was very sick – and had been for quite some time. He was being observed at a hospital in Scottsboro, AL, because they could not figure out what was causing his high fever, chills, and pain.
