The 700 Club

His Prayers Didn't Go Unanswered

Cheryl Wilcox - 700 Club Producer

Greg had always dreamed of owning and operating his own beachfront motel in Florida. But after 15 years of unrelenting work—Greg's dream started to feel more like a nightmare.

"The revenue was going down, the overhead was going up, and I had never really experienced such stress levels in my life."

The stress damaged Greg's health too. He suffered from daily searing stomach pain.   

"It was not too sharp, to begin with, but then it really got severe some of the foods that I did avoid was definitely spicy food."

Greg was self-employed with no insurance and never saw a doctor for the pain.

"We did not have the ability financially to even go down that road."

Instead, he managed the pain with over the counter antacids.

"And eating copious amounts of Pepto-Bismol and tums. It was quite an ordeal," Greg added.

Greg's wife, Sharon, says the burning pain ruined Greg's sleep for years. She says, "He would get up in the middle of the night. I knew that his stomach was upset.  He would get out of bed. It was uh sometimes more than once a night, a couple of times a night he would be up every morning I would wake up, but I was not rested."

But with a motel to run, and a grueling daily schedule, he never caught up on sleep.

"And if something had to be done, and it had to be done regardless of how I felt, I would get up and do it," Greg says. "During the course of the day, there was a lot of repair work to be done, because it was an older motel. And my day seemed to get longer and longer because I was fatigued."

For years Greg felt like his prayers about his pain went unanswered.  

"When I got alone, and I prayed, how I could be delivered from this pain as well as my emotions that were really some-somewhat out of control."

Three months ago, Greg, a regular viewer of The 700 Club, was watching the show.

And they had reached a time in their program that Pat and Terry we going to pray: "Someone else with stomach issues you're having such a problem with digestion, various foods you are just not able to eat anymore, but right this moment today, God is touching and healing you. You've had this for a while, but your gonna find you can eat anything you want."

"And when she said that, I believed it. I just got up, went to the refrigerator and took a small spoon of horseradish, and I said, 'this is the test.'"

For the next several days, Greg took a leap of faith and tested the spicy foods that would normally cause him pain.

"And I'm not saying anything to anybody I just know that I have no discomfort, I am sleeping through the night, I am taking no Pepto-Bismol. And I just said, "I'm healed. I'm healed!" 

After the sale of the beach motel back in 2014, Greg retired. Now that he's pains free, he says he has the energy, time, and restored health to fully enjoy life!

Greg can eat anything he wants; spicy, whatever he feels like. "It's awesome! Today I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life, health-wise. I thank the Lord for everything he has done for me, especially this-this healing for my stomach, and I feel like a brand-new man!"
