Terry Scroggins healing testimony

Healing obtained by the "Prayer of Faith"


If you remember I came down and photographed you and your bride on

7/21/08. Before we started, if you remember, I asked you to pray for

my back. I've had lower back pain for thirteen years. It has been in

various stages of discomfort and pain but always stiff to where I

would have to bend carefully. I've spent thousands of dollars with

chiropractors. But the problem was so low in the back that they

couldn't get any leverage.

Since last November my wife and I have been exercising at the Meyer

Center here in Springfield. About a week after you prayed for me, I

was doing my routine with eight various machines. During the second

lap I was on a machine that cause me to push back against leverage.

My back popped. To me it sounded loud. I must have yelled and cussed

because a nurse came running. I eased off of the machine not knowing

what had happened. I was out of breath, felt strange, and scared.

After calming down I decided that the workout was over. During the

next few days I could tell that my back was different.

Since that day, my back has not been stiff. But the muscles and

ligament have been adjusting to what should be normal so I have had

some minor discomfort but no pain. Today, I feel normal with no pain,

no stiffness or discomfort of any kind. Thank you for your prayer.

While telling my story to people I tell them that I was seeking a

prayer of faith and not a prayer of hope. Thank you again for your

prayer of faith.

Rebecca Henrichson's healing testimony  

August 21, 2008
by Rebecca Henrichson

We overcome fear using God's Word and receive the healing that's already been provided for.


This testimony occurred 7/5/08.

It was a Saturday night and I had fallen asleep around 10 clock. I woke up about thirty minutes later because by heart was racing and pounding very hard. There was no reason for it. I wasn't stressed or upset about anything. There was nothing out of the ordinary going on.

I had experienced the same thing about eight years ago. But that night I ended up in the emergency room. I had a very rapid heart rate and I got so scared that I had an anxiety attack. But, I thought I was having a heart attack. After spending hours in the ER and hundreds of dollars on medical bills, I was told I had Tachycardia, which just means a rapid heartbeat.

It had only been a short time since I had experienced a life changing salvation so I didn't know that I had authority in Christ. I didn't know I had power over the enemy. I didn't even know it was the enemy attacking me.

But this time I did not go to the emergency room. This time I wasn't fearful. I didn't panic. I wasn't afraid of what the doctors might do to me and I certainly wasn't afraid of dying. This time I knew and understood that this was an attack from Satan.

So, When I realized what was happening I just got irritated. I just wanted to get some sleep. I was tired. I started rebuking Satan. I told him to get off me in the name of Jesus. I continued to repeat this over and over. But, my heart continued to race. Then, I started thinking that I could just go home and be with the Lord. How nice would that be? I could just go back to sleep and let whatever was going to happen, happen. I felt peace about going home to be with Him, so I just began to praise the Lord and tell Him how much I love Him. But, it was then that I realized that I was giving in to what Satan was trying to do to me. I started thinking about how this was not God's plan. How it's not God's plan for any of us to be sick, or have disease. It was not God's plan for me to even be experiencing the rapid heart rate. So, I started to rebuke again. But, since the power of life and death is in the tongue, I thought I should be careful what I say to my heart. I didn't want to just say stop it. So, I spoke to the problem about God. I told it to get off of me right now in the name of Jesus. That it had no right to me. That I am a child of the living God. And this was not God's will for me. I commanded my body to line up with the word of God. I commanded by heart to line up with the word of God. I told my arteries to be clear and my vessels to be normal.

It was then that my heart returned to it's normal rate. I just started thanking God and praising Him and then went back to sleep.
