  1. Karina,
    Your words of faith, trust, and hope in miracles are palpable. I fervently believe in miracles of all shapes and sizes.
    I, along with family and friends, have been praying for the emotional healing of my adult sons’ hearts for 12 years. Please include them in your powerful prayers.

    In sincere gratitude,

    • Thank you so much Kathleen!

      Father, thank you that every thing that concerns us, concerns You. I pray for healing in Kathleen’s son’s heart. May You soften it and show him how much You love him. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    • Jesus, thank You for Your blood and healing. You are faithful and trustworthy. I pray for healing in Craig’s body in every way that he needs. You love him. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    • Jesus, I release the same healing You did for me. I pray for every ligament, muscle and joint to function in divine health, wholeness and strength. You see every need. I thank You for working even when Elsie can’t see it. You’re good and faithful. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  2. God healed my mother’s kidneys She had kidney failure from drugs that doctors gave her for a bacterial infection (2019) putting her on dialysis for two years. She got a 2nd bacterial infection within two years of being on dialysis and it moved to her right eye causing blindness. She was rushed to our major hospital in Birmingham AL and they removed the infection, restored her eye sight. She was moved from the eye hospital to UAB for dialysis the next day. The following day the doctors came in and said Ms Ellis who told you that you needed dialysis, you have kidney disease but you don’t need dialysis.
    Praise and Glory to our Living God and Jesus Christ. That was August 2021 she is still improving and will be 81 in February. Our God is so Good!

  3. Please pray for me as I wait for the biopsy results from 11/14/23. I had breast cancer in 2012 and once is more than enough.

    Please pray that the test will come back negative.

    Thank you

    • Father, I rebuke every spirit of infirmity and Cancer. Josefina is Yours, bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus. We thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  4. My niece has been dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts for 10 or 11 years. She’s tired of the overwhelming thoughts that she can’t seem to get her mind to stop replaying. We have been praying so hard for God to help the doctors figure out a way to help her but nothing seems to help. Please pray for the suicidal thoughts to go away and for God to hold her tight and heal her from this depression.
    It’s so very sad ! She is a remarkable young woman and has so much to offer
    Thank you for your story and prayers

Father, we lift up Kelly’s niece to you and pray for a miracle! In You all things are possible! Father we thank you for hearing our prayer and granting Kelly’s niece total healing! In Jesus Precious Name, we pray! Amen

    • I rebuke every spirit of depression and suicide in Kelly’s niece’s life. A sound mind is her inheritance. I bless her with Your perfect love and perfect peace. I bless her mind to think Your thoughts. I bless her emotions to know Your love. Your joy is her strength. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    • Kelly,

      Abba Father You are Jehovah Rapha-the God who heals. Send your healing touch to Kelly’s niece. Take away the awful thoughts she has. Guide her steps to a counselor who can possibly help her. We want a miracle today (11/19/23). Give this young girl her life back so she can have a testimony & shine your love through out her world.

      Blessings 🙂

  5. Karina,
    I have dealt with anxiety and depression as well as chronic pain in my back, hip, and knees. I could really use prayers for healing. Thank you and bless you,

    • Hi Bev…. Ok You are on my prayer list right now.. cast the pain at Gods feet.. place it in His hands… “God our Waymaker.. our All… hear our prayer for healing .. we will trust You the Great Healer to release Bev from her pain..THANKYOU Father.. “.
      Hugs Bev.. now Go and Believe

    • I rebuke every spirit of depression and anxiety in Bev’s life. Peace and joy are her inheritance. And Your joy is her strength. I bless her mind and emotions with Your perfect love. I bless her body with Your divine healing. I pray for strength in her back, hip and knees. You’re good and faithful. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  6. I need God’s healing in my neck. The pain is excruciating and unbearable. “ If I could but touch the hem of His garment. “ Thank you for your prayers.

    • Listening God- I pray for healing for Joni’s neck. Please father hear our prayer – respond O God and release her from this unwanted pain. Like the woman who touched your garment.. heal her too Oh God. In Jesus name, I plead for her, Amen.

    • I command all pain to leave Joni’s body. I speak complete healing in her neck. Healing is her inheritance. We thank You for the work of Your hands. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  7. I’ve had easily sprained ankles for quite a few years now, but the last couple of times my ankle rolled wrong I prayed for a gift of healing and worshipped to the songs The Healing by Blanca and Hallelujah Even Here by Lydia Laird and I have experienced instant relief and extremely fast recovery! GOD IS SO GOOD! Your post also reminds me of the song Tear Off the Roof by Brandon Lake

  8. I know miracles still happen and I’m praying for my friends Kay and Ron with Parkinson’s. And not just for them, but for a cure for this awful disease.

    • I rebuke every spirit of infirmity. Healing is Ron’s inheritance. I bless his body with complete healing. I bless his mind with the mind of Christ. I declare that his latter years will be greater than his former. You love him and still have good plans for him. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  9. I am in need of physical healing. I have a chronic pain condition called Erythromelalgia since 2003. I have a torn rotator cuff with frozen shoulder. The rotator tear has been since 2019, the frozen shoulder since Jan 2023. This week I am experiencing stiff/strained neck/upper back pain. For several months I have had pain in my low back/hip. It seems that physical suffering is continually my story. It is draining, debilitating, frustrating but somehow I persevere and have hope. I know this is only because of Jesus. I dream of a day that I can know what it feels like to have a pain free body.
    Thank you for prayers!

  10. My youngest daughter has a chronic illness that was diagnosed in her senior year of high school. When she went away to college, that illness almost took her life in the first quarter of her freshman year. She endured over 10 years of multiple surgeries, hospitalizations and pain. She still struggles with depression. But she married a wonderful young man and gave birth to a sweet daughter 7 years ago. She’s not completely well, but her life is so much better now! She hasn’t needed to be in the hospital overnight since her daughter was born! That is a miracle. And I thank God for it every day!

  11. Thank you for this article, and reminding me of the healing’s God has done for me even when I don’t recognize him in the moment. I have a request for prayers for healing for my mom, especially for her eyesight. She is feeling not worthwhile or like a burden as her eyesight Decreases and her back pain increases. Please pray for her healing, physically, and emotionally. Thank you. God bless.

  12. Karina, your message brought me to tears of hope and thanksgiving. My now 43 year old daughter, Laura, was diagnosed with encephalitis when she was 2. My normally bubbly child was catatonic for a week. The doctor told me it would be 6 weeks to 6 months before she healed. God had other plans and healed her overnight after my Mom held her and prayed for her! The doctor had no explanation but we know. And Laura has had no complications from this disease
    Please pray for our niece,Emily. She is in stage 4 of ovarian cancer and is meeting with her oncologist today to see if there is anything more they can do. We are relying on God’s wisdom and plans. We appreciate your prayers.

  13. I am praying and believing for my adult children to come back to the Lord. They were raised in church so I am standing on the promise of, when they are old, they will not depart. I loved reading your story of your healing and also Chanc’s story. God is still doing miracles, every day. Like you, we all need to make sure we make those miracles known!

  14. Yes, Lord!! Trusting Him to heal the anxiety disorder and it’s limitations in His time! Thank you for the encouragement

  15. I don’t like to feel this way listening, but I’ve been sick my whole life, an immune dx,20 kidney stones, OA in my neck n most joints, hiatal hernia, colon resection on n on. Im a good person, i pray, i help others though in pain, it doesn’t help at all yet i hear complaints about knee pain. I can barely eat or move and rarely leave my house, friends have left because it’s too much, no parents or siblings, im alone. Knee pain? I have hope daily, its what keeps me going. Maybe people should stop complaining about the small inconveniences and look at a bigger picture. Try reaching out to those truly in need, no one ever has here i can tell you and its very disheartening and im disappointed in people. Glad your knee is better though so you can exercise. Not angry, just disappointed that these are the things people are concerned about, for themselves.

  16. Hi Karena,
    Praise God for your 6 months of healing!!! Praying this will be permanent. 🙂
    Enjoy your day.


  17. How many times have I prayed, “if I could only touch his garment.” Praying for healing from major GI issues that are all-consuming.

    • Father, You are the mender of all things broken. I pray for you to soften every heart. May each person extend grace and forgiveness and Your love. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  18. I am bit late in my reply God loves us all.Does not like us to sick. Sometimes God uses himself to heal us and sometimes God uses Doctors and Hospital treatment to heal us. Sometimes God take us home to be with him. We don’t know why. Families left sad asking why God did you heal that person through prayer and your word or Doctors and Hospital treatment. Why did you not heal that person at all why did you take that person home. It sad for the family. As they will not have them any more on earth. Ours is not to ask why if God took them home especially if they where saved. I know two people that where saved. Families heart broken. That their loved ones never got healed this side of earth. God took them home this side of earth. They believed God for healing so did their families. They had their Church pray for them. They got treatment from their Doctors in their local Hospital. But it not to be. They stood on God’s word for their healing so did their families. But God saw best to take them home to be with him. They have not got them this side of earth. But they will miss them yes on earth. But they have not lost all. They have good memories of day spent together. They can look forward to the day they will see them again when their time up on earth one day in Glory with Jesus. But they did ask God why did he not heal their love one when he healed others through him and the Doctors and Hospital treatment. But they said to themselves God new best to take them home to be with him. Our is not to ask why anymore. We will see them one day in Glory. That is so true they will as all saved. Both had cancer both young. One was a child with bone cancer. One was an adult in her 60teets with cancer. Both sad. I say yes sad for the family but God new best they might not have them on earth any more but they see them in Glory one day again. I say Amen to that. Love the reading. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Enniskillen Co.Fermanagh N.Ireland in my prayers xx

  19. I have chronic pain in my body due to inflammation from arthritis. Other medical issues as well due to side effects of medicines. I am isolated from church and family and friends because I can’t navigate steps, or stairs or their bathroom is not handi-cap friendly. So… this loneliness and disconnect causes me to be sad sometimes. ButGod… always encourages me through His Word. I can face tomorrow because I know who holds tomorrow. Thanks for the encouraging devotion. thanks for praying for me. 🙂

  20. Still waiting for the day my daughters their husbands and children will serve the Lord, salvation for all! Also, for my husband to rededicate his life wholly to Jesus, he and I will serve the Lord together, pray together and read Gods word together. I will continue to keep praying the Lord will move in their lives Amen

  21. Karina,

    Today (11/19/23) at church we will have a thankful service. Anyone can stand up & tell us what & why they are thankful. I am thankful God brought me out of a mini depression last Fall. Grateful beyond measure that God left the splendor of Heaven, came down to broken Earth & died a horrible death just for us. He spilled his blood to cleanse us from our sins. Our country needs healing from hatred & strife. We desperately need a revival. Lord take away some of the hatred & replace it with your love & peace.

    Blessings 🙂

  22. Dear Karina
    Just read this blog. So encouraging! And yes oh my, our Christ our LORD heals. During the Covid-lockdown year 2021 my body broke out In horrible itchy rashes for months! Every minute, every hour every night was a nightmare that medications and steroids creams lotions did not work. My skin was nightmarish with bruised, purplish, red patches all over.

    My husband and I partake of the Holy Communion every day, sometimes more than once.

    I put my trust in Jesus healing, His broken body, the lashes that fell on His back, each time I scratched, and groaned, I repeatedly spoke & prayed aloud that by Jesus stripes, I am healed. Jesus loves me. He wants me well and healthy. As He is in Heaven, at His father’s right hand, with no sickness, no disease, So Am I on this earth.
    I stopped all meds by the 6th month because the meds seemed to make my condition worse.
    With mustard seed faith, with Holy Communion, by the power of His healing grace, by 50%, 80% 100% 120% my body recovered in the following 6mths… All Glory to Jesus❤️. the devil kills, steals destroys, but Christ comes to give us LIFE, abundant shalom.

    Have a blessed healthy year ahead
