The Lord, My Healer

             “If only I could touch the hem of his garment, I will be healed.” (Mark  5:28)

This was the wish of the woman who suffered from hemorrhage for twelve years.  She knew she would be healed if she could only touch the cloak of Jesus.  Though weak and drained, she pushed her way through the crowd, elbowing between people. She had to reach Jesus and touch his cloak.  And she made it! Her bleeding stopped instantly when she touched the hem of Jesus’ garment.  Her faith has healed her. “Daughter, your faith has healed you.  Go in peace.” That was what Jesus told her when he realized that power had gone out of him. 

For 8 years, I was afflicted, on and off, with hyperthyroidism and underwent medication, series of laboratory tests and thyroid scans.  “If only I could touch the hem of his garment, I will be healed.” This was my prayer when Fr. Fernando Suarez, the healing priest, came to our place for healing sessions.  I was blessed to be given the opportunity to serve in one of his healing masses and there I witnessed how God used Fr. Suarez to touch and heal the sick, rich and poor people alike. Many people gave their amazing testimonies on how the Lord healed them that moment.  Truly, God cannot be outdone in His goodness and generosity.  He works in His own mysterious ways.  I remember that woman in the Bible who suffered from hemorrhage and her only hope then was to be able to touch Jesus’ cloak in order to be healed.  My hope and prayer was to be given the chance to be prayed over by Father Suarez and it happened.  I felt a surge of warmth sensation ran through my whole body the moment Fr. Suarez touched my heart. I knew and I claimed that I was healed.

Last Sunday, I hosted a BCBP (Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals) prayer meeting in our home.  It was a very fruitful and enlightening session.  My brothers and sisters in the BCBP, in knowing that I would be leaving to undergo radioactive iodine treatment, prayed over me and my daughter Jenny, who is in her fifth month of pregnancy. It was the most wonderful and uplifting healing prayer I have ever heard! The presence of the Lord then was unmistakably felt.  I knew in my heart that I am completely healed and made whole again. 

Indeed, I am healed and I am claiming it! Yesterday, after reading my laboratory tests and thyroid scan results, the endocrinologist informed me that everything is normal and no need for me to go through the radioactive iodine treatment (which I really dreaded for months for fear of its risks and after effects).  The Lord, in His loving compassion and mercy, has healed me by sending earthly angels through Fr Fernando Suarez, my brothers and sisters in the BCBP, my family, friends and officemates who interceded for my healing. There is really great power in intercessory prayer!  

I can only thank the Lord, my Healer, by sharing this experience to people like you who will be reading this blog.  And I pray that you, too, may find comfort and healing in whatever burden you may have at the moment. 

God bless us all!

    Eight years of physical pain and mental anguish is long enough to weaken one's disposition and inner self yet you have never faltered, you have continued to shine and undaunted , always prayerful and hopeful that all your woes in HIS time will be healed...and NOW is the time. Amen to God's power and mercy.;;;))))
