    Do Not Be Dismayed from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about becoming “Dismayed.” To be dismayed means “to be downcast, disappointed, disheartened, filled with terror.” It replaces hope and will lead you to a dark place. We become ineffective and...

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. Let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2 WEBMy Dad was born during the great depression in the early 1930s...

    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEBJob is the oldest book in the Bible, except for the first te...

I Am The God That Healeth Thee

  • Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. James 5:1315 NIV

    As I got out of bed, I was more tired than when I had laid down. We had not slept now for weeks except for a brief moments here and there. My wife had some terrible choking cough that she had picked up and continuously coughed until she would throw up. She couldnt leave the house except to go to the doctor. No prescription, or inhaler, or cough syrup seemed to help and this had been going on now for two long months.

    A traveling preacher was visiting our church that Sunday and we had not been to church together since it began. We felt that she should go, so we did and she coughed through the entire service. At the end of the service the preacher (Dennis DeGrasse, NC) asked if anyone needed prayer and we went up front.

    He laid hands on my wife and began to pray and my wife started choking worse than ever. Finally he said something like Cough you are leaving now in the name of Jesus Christ! and she was instantly healed. She had just been doubled over coughing, choking, red in the face, and now she was perfectly healed because of his prayer and it did not come back. She never had any more problems like that.

    If you are sick, get the leaders of the church to anoint you with oil and pray for you. If you do not have a church then try and find one. We were not meant to walk alone down here and need each other. It is God who does the healing but He often uses His people as His hands.

    Prayer: Father, I believe that You are the Healer. Please heal anything that is wrong in my body now, restore my health and vigor, in the name of Jesus.

Patty Martin
Patty Martin Pastor Dion, I recently had that same type of cough.  It began in late February and ended in June.  My doctor put me on a cocktail of medications, but I truly believe that prayer from many of my Christian friends, along with medication, helped the cough leave my body.  I believe that prayer in the most powerful medicine of all.

Chris Dibbern
Chris Dibbern Amen. I believe this, thoroughly. Once, I was pan frying with oil, and my finger got in it. I was pressing down hard on some food which slid out of the way. I knew I would have to go to the hospital for this one. I was already loaded down with other worries and a big trial (which is still going on), so in a moment of faith (and I don't know where it came from), I prayed, "let this not be." And instantly, it wasn't. There was no more pain, no more redness, no indication that I had been burned at all. Except that my finger was still coated in oil. Anyway, I have another minor ailment, right now. There is some sharp, burning pain in the muscles in my left foot, a side effect of a previous heel injury (also healed by prayer, btw!), but this one I haven't been able to pray away, yet, and I have a 7 mile road race 6 days from now (the Quad City's Bix7). On my way back from church and coffee, I was wondering why my prayers haven't been answered, yet, then I sat down and found your post. :-)  I would appreciate any prayers. Nothing is too minor for the Lord.  Thanks, and God bless you all! :-)

K K
K K Thank you for this word. I need to be prayed over for healing and will seek it out. I have a very debilitating chronic genetic condition that is so painful I've been in bed the past few days. I'm nearing 60. I told my daughters yesterday that I can't fathom living another 20 years or so with this ever debilitating, deteriorating disorder that doctors can do nothing for but pain meds, which help very little. I love the Lord my God with all my heart. I have always just asked for the strength to bear what I was born with, but it would be so wonderful if He would remove it from me. I've asked this myself, but never asked others to pray for my health. I guess because I've always had it. Thank you for this message. God bless you all. Amen.

Sylvia Todd
Sylvia Todd Yes, Kathy, it's important to lean on the gifts and strengths of others in the body, especially when with what you are going through! I will pray for you here, but please also check in at the prayer area so our prayer partners can lift you up. Just click on the Prayer link on the menu. Father, I lift up Kathy to you and pray that you please have mercy on her and remove this condition from her. Lord, she has suffered so long and I pray that you please give her relief and restore all that has been damaged in her. I thank you and pray this in the name of Jesus, amen.

David and Dianna Wyles
David and Dianna Wyles Amen!!  Thank you! I believe God hears us and heals us!! We prayed day and night for months for our daughter to be healed...God heard all those prayers, it was definately answered prayers  and gathering together in prayer that healed my daughter of her psychosis... all we could do was pray and watch it all play out. Thanking God every day that he answered our prayers and my daughter is in her right mind again. Months may seem like prayers aren't answered but it's all on his time not ours and we felt God carrying us through the storm the whole  time.When the elders of my friends Indian tribe gathered together in prayer... that's the night my daughter drove in a panic attack until she ran out of gas hundreds of miles from home, but in a town that had an excellent mental health hospital that changed everything for Cari... could have been anybody that found her on the side of the road (scary) but it was the police because she called them for help! YES God answers prayers and getting the leaders involved changes everything!! Thanks again Pastor!! Stay Blessed and happy Monday :)
