The 700 Club

Confidence in Prayer Pays Off

Tami is a grandmother and grade school-teacher who loves staying active and playing sports.  One afternoon, while playing tennis with her husband, Tami injured her shoulder.

“I was in full stride, almost running to get to the ball, and then I overextended my arm to get to the ball. And then I overextended my arm,” said Tami.  “It felt like a pull, like a tweak or a pull in my shoulder.  I felt it.  I could hear it.”

For three months, Tami tried everything to alleviate the pain.

“I iced it… and then I would put a heating pad on it.  I did pain reliever; I mean, it hurt to go to sleep, I didn't sleep well.”

One morning in December while off from work, she started watching tv, and came across the 700 club. Gordon and Terry started praying.

“When I turned it on I said, ‘I wonder if he'll pray for my shoulder?’  Then it became ‘I think he's going to pray for my shoulder.’  I felt very confident that he was going to pray for my shoulder."

Gordon said…

“There’s someone you got severe problems in your right shoulder, it’s a deep injury and it’s like your shoulder has locked up and god’s healing it he’s restoring it.  Just begin to do what you couldn’t do before and realize god has healed you, he has set you free.”

“I said, ‘yes, that’s for me.’  At that point I really did feel relief.  I went up, I went back, it didn't hurt.  I did all those things I couldn't do.  It was instant.  I felt it and I was so excited.”

But then, a few days later, the pain began to creep back in.

“I believe totally in healing I just didn't understand why it was returning.  And I thought maybe it was my lack of faith or something to that effect.  I just thought, ‘You know what?  I'm just going to pray through this thing and just keep trusting god and keep professing it, and just go back to the scriptures about healing and just keep reading them.’”

But the pain persisted, and after a few weeks, Tami decided to go see a doctor.

“He x-rayed my shoulder and said it was a calcification due to an injury, he saw there a little teeny tear on the rotator cuff,” said Tami.

The doctor sent Tami to physical therapy but that only made it worse.

“I was frustrated cause, you know, I’m active.  I want to move and I don't want to move with lots of pain.  And I want to do things.”

One night in February at the dinner table, Tami told her family she was going to keep trusting God.

“I just said, ‘you know what?  I have been healed.  I was healed December 29th, and I am healed.  So I just know I am.  And I’m going to just walk it out. I'm just going to live it out’ – it was a turning point.  From there, I just know that I just started doing what I normally do.  I started trying to reach back, I started this.  I would wash back here, I would do all kinds of things with my hand, and it just got better and better and better.  I didn't do any more pt.

Ever since, Tami’s shoulder has been pain free.  The whole experience strengthened her faith.

“God heals.  And he loves us,” said Tami.  “He doesn't always heal us in the same way, but he loves us and he's listening when we're praying.  He is listening.”
