Nancy’s Story


Everyone’s journey towards healing is different. I have learned there is nothing more gratifying than being used by God to help someone on that journey!

A good friend of mine recently introduced me to Nancy, a childhood friend of hers that was diagnosed with a brain tumor. While asking those closest to her for prayers, our mutual friend thought of me. After an amazing few months of tests, surgery and an enormous faith in God – Nancy is completely healed!

Nancy offered to share her story with you directly:

“I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in August of this year. A childhood friend told me about Holly, her Christian faith, and how she prays for healing for people. She asked if I’d be interested in being prayed for. Of course I said yes!

Since we live on opposite ends of Texas, Holly called me and prayed for me over the phone. I didn’t tell her or our mutual friend where the brain tumor was in my brain, but Holly said she could see it was in the front, in my forehead, which was true! She prayed for me for healing, and said she could “see” the tumor dissolving.

Holly also reached out a couple weeks later – when I had some cerebrospinal fluid leak, and after praying, the leak stopped and never returned!

I had the tumor removed surgically a few weeks ago. The procedure went very well and the entire tumor was removed. Afterwards, I ordered the medical records and saw in the description of the procedure that the doctor had used an instrument that breaks down the tumor then sucks it out (sort of like a tiny vacuum cleaner that first dissolves the thing).

So the tumor is gone, and to match Holly’s vision, it was dissolved while being removed from my brain. Also, the pathology report showed no cancer. So, now I’m fine and the doctor said I should live to be at least 86 years old (I just turned 50)!

PRAISE GOD!!! And thank you, Holly, for praying and believing!!! Thank you for all that you’re doing for the LORD and for others!”

As a strong Christian, it didn’t take much to convince Nancy that God intends us to be happy, healthy, and whole. Sickness and disease are not passed out by our heavenly Father – rather by the evil one that intends to steal, kill and destroy us all.

God is not passing out tumors or cancer to teach those who have it a lesson. God does not let people get into accidents to slow them down or get them back on the right path. God’s will for each one of us is good, and pleasing, and perfect!

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”  (John 10:10 NKJV)

I thank you, God, for having so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!


A Thankful Heart


I try not to follow a formula when I pray for someone’s healing, but I often follow a pattern that continues to work for me. First, I see if the Holy Spirit is guiding me to a particular problem, body part, or name of the demon attacking the person in need of prayer. Once I feel like I have caught the demon’s attention, I tell it to leave and never return (under my authority in Jesus Christ). From there, I remind the body part I’m addressing to do its job according to God’s perfect design.

The analogy I like most, is that our body is an intricate, inter-mingling set of highways, all designed to work perfectly and keep even the heaviest traffic flowing smoothly. An attack from Satan is often a single car that stalled in the middle of one of the highways that can eventually cause a significant pile-up – stopping traffic in its tracks.

Healing prayers are simply clearing the wreck from the highway, so traffic can resume as designed.

I then close my prayers with a simple reminder for me and the person I am praying for, to thank Jesus for making it happen. While Jesus told us to heal the sick, He paid the price when He was beaten and hung on the cross.

I recently prayed for a friend who was suffering from significant knee pain, long after a surgery which should have healed by now. My friend could easily move her knee and re-create pain that she described as an 8 to 10 on the pain scale. After a few minutes of commanding the spirit of attack away from her, and commanding her knee to do its job – she could not recreate the pain that came so easily moments before. Praise God!

But I felt her pause, the reservation in being able to thank Jesus for delivering this freedom. Her reaction forced me to wonder, how important is this final step – giving thanks?

God lead me to the story in the Bible called “Ten Lepers Cleansed” in Luke’s chapter 17.

Now it happened as [Jesus] went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan. So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”  (Luke 17: 11-19, NKJV)

Jesus rewarded the one leper that returned to give thanks. But the scripter also says all ten were cleansed on their way to the priests. Did the nine lose their healing for not returning to give thanks? While it is not clear what happened to those who did not return, there are numerous passages in the Bible commanding us to be thankful to God.

Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.  (Psalms 106:1 NKJV)

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.                 (I Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV)

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (Romans 1:21 NASB)

Giving thanks to God is a very small price to pay when we are delivered from the wiles of the evil one.

I am thankful for the gift of healing granted to God’s children under our authority in Christ Jesus. I am thankful when God uses me in amazing ways. I am thankful for my simple, yet supernatural life.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving Season?

Give Me A Break(room)


Originally posted at here.

Each new day offers us “divine appointments” – opportunities to be used by God. It is not every day I rise to the occasion. A million small reasons can stop me in my tracks. I know that fear is Satan’s attempt to keep me from stepping out in faith and asking someone who needs healing if I can pray for them.

God put several “divine appointments” in my path at work recently to pray for “Beth,” who I could tell was in pain. There were several wasted opportunities before I worked up the courage to do anything about it. I’d politely inquire how she was doing – would hear about the pain but also about an upcoming doctor appointment. So I thought, “let the doctors do their job, no need to put myself out there.”

But I kept running into Beth at work, and the last doctor update – that perhaps surgery was the only way forward – sent me into action. So I asked Beth if I could pray for her in the middle of the breakroom at work. She quickly agreed and said she had been healed through prayer before but had lost her healing. My faith for helping bring healing to her body rose exponentially!

Beth was suffering from a twisted spine that caused one leg to be shorter than the other, creating back, shoulder and leg pain throughout. Simply mimicking a healing video I saw online, I asked her to sit in a chair and put out her legs. By putting my thumbs on her ankle bones, we could easily see her left leg was shorter than her right by half of an inch. In Jesus’ name I simply commanded her left leg to grow to be even with her right. We both watched in amazement as it actually happened. I commanded her body back into God’s perfect alignment until my thumbs were perfectly aligned and then saw the tears build in Beth’s eyes.

Next I asked Beth to stand and straighten her arms, and similarly placed my thumbs on her wrist joints to see the alignment and commanded her arms to come back into alignment in Jesus’ name. Once again, perfectly aligned, a tear escaped Beth’s eye and ran down her check.

She said her shoulder blades were still in pain so that’s where we targeted our prayers next until the pain left, and there was no more pain in Beth’s body. I had her walk around the breakroom – which she could easily and smoothly do after limping for months. She could move her arms and legs around without feeling any pain. We thanked Jesus in a mighty way, and then decided it was time to get back to work. Amen!

Is it really so simple? Yes. Find any healing story in the Bible (or done by a modern-day minister) and mimic it! What you will notice is that Jesus does not pray to His Father in Heaven when healing the sick – He speaks to the problem in front of Him. It was Curry Blake who I heard say it best: “Don’t speak to God about the problem, speak to the problem about God!”

The numerous healing stories in the Bible were not Jesus showing off his own power or relationship with God – rather each story was meant as an example, a guide for us to follow so we could do the same.

Since Jesus knows that His Father’s will is for the person standing in front of Him to be well, He only has to tell the sickness or disease attacking the person to leave to bring that person back into alignment with God’s will. I will repeat – it is always God’s will for you to be well. It is always God’s will for us to die of old age, peacefully in our beds.

What Christ accomplished on the cross gave me authority over sickness and disease, and it is my responsibility to bring the perfection of heaven into the realities of earth. Being a child of God – accepting Jesus as our savior and inviting the Holy Spirit to become one with our own spirit – gives us everything we need to stand against the enemy.

I stand on the promise that our words, when spoken in Jesus’ name, carry power, that we only have to “say to the mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NKJV)

If you are not yet convinced that you can bring healings to others, I offer the training that got me started – Curry Blake’s Divine Healing Technician Training®. When I first learned of this free resource, I absorbed all eighteen hours of video in a single weekend! By the end, Curry had me convinced I only had to mimic what I saw Jesus do, or mimic the healing videos I saw other ministers do on-line – and God would use me. And He did! Trust me – He will use you too!
