Sister Mary grew up in a small, remote village in Asia. She never went to school and has remained illiterate for 42 years. Despite her limitations, Sister Mary has seen God do impossible things. This is her story. In the year 2007, Sister Mary traveled with her husband, a GFA-supported pastor, and other national workers to meet many suffering people in need. One woman was pregnant and sick. She was close to delivering her baby, and both were in danger. Seeing the power of God displayed through prayers, Sister Mary decided prayer would be the bedrock of her ministry.
Prayer: The Fount from Which Healing Flows
Back in her own village, Sister Mary did not want to stop praying for people, and with it, the privilege of seeing God move in their lives. So she started a prayer group. They gathered weekly to pray for the sick and needy. News of their group spread, and many people made their way to it to receive hope and healing through the prayers of Sister Mary and her companions.
“There were many people from far villages who were affected by fatal sicknesses like cancer,” Sister Mary recalls. “Many came for prayer, and many got healed … There were some who were blind, some were paralyzed, and the Lord healed them. … We read the Bible to them and prayed for them, and the Lord healed them.”
