When Steve called for people to come up for prayer I did not respond at first and Donna all but pushed me forward. When Steve asked me what I would like him to pray for I told him I would like some relief from the pain of Fibromyalgia. Steve asked me if there were any Masons in my family, there weren’t that I know of, however I come from a long line of Odd Fellows, he said they are the same in essence. Steve then had me pray with him to break some generational curses that he saw surrounding my family and me and then he prayed for me. As Steve began to pray for me I became very, very warm and simply fell to the floor. While lying there I continued to feel this warm sensation and I could not move. I became aware of a voice speaking directly to my heart is the only way I can describe it. The voice said, “I will never leave you!”
Since that night I have been pain free!!!!!! As I was driving to work the following Wednesday morning I was singing songs of praise and taking inventory of my body and thinking about the fact that I was pain free, and that I was ready to give up all pain medication. When all of a sudden I realized that I could feel the fingers on my right hand, which I had been unable to feel since my open-heart surgery in June of 2001! I began to praise God and cry and then started dialing the phone to call Donna, the next thing I know we were both crying. I have been off all of pain medication and have cut down on several other medications because of it. God is truly an Awesome God because He did not stop there. Due to Epilepsy I have never had any feeling on the whole left side of my body (from the midline over), and as an added bonus of all of this God in his awesomeness has given me the feeling back on the left side of my body too!!!!!!!
Steve also prayed that God would heal my heart and that my pacemaker would no longer be necessary, and I look forward to the day when my doctor confirms that news for me! Won’t that be an awesome day Steve! Thank you for coming to speak at our church and for your thoughts and prayers.”
God Bless You All

I hope God is blessing you and yours as he has continued to bless me! I saw my Cardiologist and he was extremely pleased at my progress. He asked why I had gone off most of my medications and I told him about you praying for me, and I said I realized that some people do not believe in such things and he said ” he believed in what ever works and obviously it was working.” He said, ” Four years ago I did not think I would be having this conversation with you but as far as I am concerned you are healed!” I will see you every six months to track your pacemaker and in 5 years to change it— otherwise you are out of here!
Needless to say I danced all the way out of his office praising God all the way!! He is truely an awesome God and He constantly is showing me in a myriad of little ways that He is there for me in my everyday life. Thank you for your inspiration and your faith.
