I believed in medication but the Lord proved to me that there is power in prayer, He showed me that He is the God of yesterday, today and for evermore.
I was very sick. What started as pneumonia became something else as other symptoms started manifesting, I exhausted my money on medical tests as we were trying to figure out what was wrong with me but all was to no avail. It got so bad that at a point I gave up hope and even told my wife that I didn’t think I would survive and that if I die she was permitted to remarry as soon as possible. My mother who live abroad with my father insisted she was coming home to help out but I completely objected to that, as I said to her that I didn’t want to die in her presence, and that it will be better she hears of my death rather than watch me die. At that time, my mother, father, brothers and sisters were always in tears whenever they called or visited me.
Haven given up hope, it turned out that I was the one consoling family and friends not to feel bad about my departure as I thought that was my destiny. Then the cycle was always illness, recovery in a week and in the second week, serious illness.
Then came a strange experience. I was in my room sleeping one afternoon when a bird came chirping by my window side. As I found that extremely strange, I got angry in my spirit believing that the activities of witchcraft over my life had gotten so bold that they were even operating in the afternoon. Then as I thought on that, I suddenly realized my neck had gotten stiff and was extremely aching. I immediately called my mother in the Lord to tell her of my experience. While her response was that I should go to prayer city of Mountain of fire and miracles ministries (MFM), I thought that was not the right thing to do. I thought going to the hospital and taking some pain reliever was what I needed, but as she insisted, I had to obey and off I went to the prayer city of Mountain of fire and miracles ministries
At the prayer city, it was a spiritual battle. I tasted first hand miracle; the neck pain disappeared, others followed and different things happened. Then it dawned on me that God has healed me.
To the glory of God, I regained my appetite and I started getting stronger and stronger.
I thank God for His grace and mercies. I thank Him for not making my family and friends cry over me. I thank Him for not allowing me die in my prime and for not allowing my beautiful wife become a widow in her young age.
Now I know the God I serve. I walked through the valley of the shadow of death, and now I fear no evil because I know the Lord is with me and He comforts me. HALLELUYAH!!!

SEE:To God be the glory, great things He hath done. Forget not His benefits; He forgives all your iniquities and heals all your diseases (Psalm 103:2-3). As you serve the Lord your God, He blesses your bread and water and He takes sickness away from your midst, nothing cast your young, none is barren in your land, and your number of days He will fulfill.
