Cancer-Free by the Power of God!

Essie, a Florida widow and elder in her church, knew just what to do when her granddaughter Jasmine was six months pregnant and diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I anointed her with oil, laid hands on her, and prayed over her in the name of the Lord,” Essie recalls, citing the Bible’s instructions in James 5:14-15. A firm believer in God’s supernatural power to heal, she claimed Jesus’ promise that “they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:17-18).

As Jasmine received chemotherapy while she was still pregnant, Essie was anxious about how the treatments might affect the baby, so she called the International Prayer Center and asked one of our prayer ministers to agree with her that God would heal her granddaughter Jasmine and keep her unborn child healthy.

The prayers were answered!

Jasmine’s baby, named Taraji, was born last fall, perfectly healthy. “We were so focused on the mother that we didn’t pay as much attention to the baby’s health at first,” Essie says. “But praise God, she’s doing everything a baby would normally do!”

Jasmine is doing well too. “All the medical tests came back negative,” Essie beams. “She is cancer-free, and I know it was the power of God!”

Even though Essie is a bold woman of God who has seen the Lord answer many of her prayers over the years, she plans to continue to call our International Prayer Center for prayer support. “I’m so thankful to your prayer ministers for agreeing with me in prayer!”
