Pain Brings Active Lifestyle to a Halt

For years, retired art teacher Faye lived in constant pain from her genetically deformed knees.

Faye remembers, “I was in so much pain that I wore a brace for ten years.”

Eventually, doctors replaced both of her knees and she was able to continue her active lifestyle of skiing, cycling, and gardening- but years later, she began experiencing pain in her right hip.

Faye recalls, “It was intense.  It was very sharp and to me it was debilitating. I thought I was going to have to have a hip replacement, but I went to the doctor and they said, ‘No. It has to do with your muscles.’"

Faye saw physical therapists, chiropractors, and orthopedic doctors - but none of them could find anything wrong.

Faye says, “And I really had sorta given up just to say, ‘Okay, this is – this is your plight, you're just going to have to deal with this.’"

For the next 10 years, Faye lived in pain. Even normal day activities such as driving, sleeping and cleaning caused her problems.

Faye remembers, “I'd say, ‘Oh, it hurts too bad, I think I'll just rest.’  You know? And my idea of resting was sitting and reading or watching TV or something because the only time it didn't hurt was when I was sitting.”

One day while resting, Faye was watching The 700 Club when Gordon started praying.

Gordon prays, “Lord, we just come to you. People with joint issues; not just the knees but also the right hip, right knee--several joint issues being healed right now. What you couldn’t do before, you couldn’t move it without pain, God’s healing it right now.”

Faye says, “And I thought, ‘I wonder if that's me?’  And I said, ‘I'll try.  Could that be me that you're talking about?  If it is, yes, I'll take it.’”

At the moment, nothing changed, but several days later Faye noticed something different while talking with her husband.

Faye remembers, “I said, ‘You know that pain in my hip? It’s gone.’ He said, ‘What'd you do?’  I said, ‘All right, this may sound a little hokey, but I was watching The 700 Club. And I touched the place where they told me to touch, and it has not come back.’”

Now Faye continues her active lifestyle – with no pain.

Faye says, “It’s wonderful not to have to think about the pain and adjusting for the pain. It was like a gift.  So for – I felt like that was really special that it just came from God. You know? Meant to be.”
