The 700 Club

Lyme Disease Finally Meets Its Match

Randy Rudder - 700 Club Producer

In May of 2018 Mary Jo suddenly noticed red spots on her arms. “They were on my arms and my legs and the top of my feet,” she says. “And I had one that went across my neck. It was this big red mark and it continued to grow.”

The marks were from tick bites. She contacted her physician right away. “He said it was probably a rash,” Mary Jo reports. “And it started to turn like a bluish, then turned like black, like a black and blue mark, and I was pretty concerned about that.”

The pain and inflammation worsened. She then started having other symptoms as well. “I started getting really bad joint pain.  I was having memory issues,” she says. “It was like I was confused. I had no appetite and I started losing a lot of weight. I actually thought I was going to die.  That's how bad at the end, how bad it started to get.”

When the discomfort got even more intense, Mary Jo visited a convenient care center, where they drew blood and ran tests. “They thought it was Lyme,” she says. “So they started me on that Doxycycline right away because it's really critical you take that medicine at the beginning. I did that. I started taking that right away. They ran another blood test and it still came back, and that my numbers were pretty critical. The CDC only lets your primary care doctor provide so much medicine. The appointment wasn't till like the mid- to the end of September, and I told them, I said, ‘I'm going to be out of medicine at the end of July,’ and they said they couldn't help me. And I realized that there was only one person that could help me, and it was God.”

Mary Jo had always believed in divine healing so she began praying. Then she turned on the 700 club.  “That day I said, ‘You know, God, I watch this every day and nobody ever says ‘Lyme Disease.’ It was at the end of the program. And Pat asked Wendy, ‘Do you have something else?’ I think that's the words he used.”

That day, Wendy said, “Someone with symptoms of Lyme disease, God is touching you right now and you are being restored completely in the name of Jesus...”

“I was like "Yeah, that's me!" Mary Jo says. “I claimed that and all the symptoms, all the symptoms went away.  I started to cry cause the power of God is so awesome.  And to feel him go through your body like that, it's just the most powerful thing.”

Since then, Mary Jo has been symptom free. “Nothing ever came back,” she proclaims, “and there was no need for me to even see a doctor because God healed me.”
