Some physicians are finding that prayer plays a major role in their patients recovery. I remember when our youngest son was 2 yrs old he faced a possible serious illness. When I heard about this condition and it’s possible effect on his health I immediately turned to prayer. All of my Christian life I have known and believed in the power of prayer and our faith toward a miracle working God. I remember standing in the nurses station as our doctor began to give the report and it’s possible outcome and as she did I made a decision and declared it for all present to hear, “If what you are doing does not work, my God WILL!” I know that some of the medical professionals thought I was crazy but I did not care, all my focus and hope was turned to God and his truth that says, “All things are possible to those that believe.”
I am thankful for the wisdom that God has given our doctors to help improve the health of others, but when they are limited in their work I know deep in my heart that God has no limits when someone chooses to believe.
It is comforting to hear that more doctors are becoming sensitive to the faith of their patients. One particular physician became a patient himself and realized that faith and prayer plays a tremendous role in the health and recovery of his patients. He says that most doctors that are faced with serious illnesses quickly draw upon their faith in God and when they recover they are more open, sensitive and understanding toward their patients and their faith.
