Living in Constant Pain
Earlier that month, Abilash had fallen and severely injured his backbone.
“I was unable to bear the pain,” he explained. “I was unable to sit and stand. When I went to the hospital for checkups, the doctor told me that my backbone was fractured, and I had to have surgery.”
But Abilash couldn’t go through with surgery; it cost too much. So, Abilash lived on with the pain.
One evening, as Abilash lay on his bed, a Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor visited. Abilash grew up in a nominal Christian home, and he welcomed the pastor, especially now.
“He comforted me from God’s Word and prayed for my healing,” Abilash said. “He told me about Gospel for Asia’s radio broadcast and encouraged me to listen to the program regularly.”
Healing Through the Radio
Abilash took the pastor’s words to heart. Early one morning he rose from his bed in spite of his searing pain and turned the radio dial to the station.
Abilash hung on to the words in the message he heard. When the broadcaster began praying to God for healing, he wholeheartedly joined in. After the broadcast ended, Abilash called the station and asked the prayer team to pray for his healing. The man on the other end assured Abilash they would be in prayer for him.
In Abilash’s next medical checkup, the doctors informed him that no operation was needed. The Lord healed him, and he is now able to move without pain.
“Miraculously,” Ablish explains, “God healed me without the operation. He gave me relief from the severe pain that didn’t enable me to walk, stand or sit before. I thank God for the healing, and I praise God for this radio program.”
Abilash, because of the power and love that Christ revealed to him through the pastor and the radio program, now attends Sunday worship with other believers. He has embraced the love of Christ and gives Him all the praise for his healing!
Abilash’s testimony is just one example of what God is doing through GFA’s radio ministry. Read another story of Christ’s faithfulness through this ministry.

All praise to our loving powerful God. I have a lung disease that will probably end my life in the next couple of years. Will you pray for my healing. I am a believer in the love of Jesus and His healing power . . . Darrell in Spokane.
Amen! It has been a while now that God has placed a deep desire to pray for the Gospel for Asia, in the aspect of Jesus Wells, Missionary field, drought, etc. Lately the one scripture that is constantly on my mind in Eph: 3:20 God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. I will pray that Abilash remains in the presence of God and that he continues to pray everyday to gain strength and knowledge.
Blessings to you and your ministry.
Praise God! So happy for your Abilash! Our God is the one true God and He hears you!
That is awesome all glory to the Lord Jesus Christ last year I was diagnosed with cancer in my lungs went to our Sunday night service. My pastor and some other brethren prayed for me,God laid me out in the Spirit right there on the floor in front of the alter. Long story short I went to the Dr. He wanted to talk about cemo treatments he took another look at my lungs and glory to God cancer was gone and by the way I’m a non smoker
The Lord is good. Unless we experience pain, sorrow, grief, lose, there can be no joy if there is nothing to be healed of. The profound gratefulness, thankfulness of the Lord’s kindness toward us when desperate people find the Lord produces fruit onto eternal glory. Just wait till we get to the GREAT MARRIAGE FEAST when the Lord Jesus Christ comes for His Bride. Rev.7. 9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS HEALING POWER!!! I LOVE YOU MY BROTHER IN CHRIST. STAY STRONG IN THE LOVE OF CHRIST. HE WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED. PRAISE OUR GOD HOLY NAME!!!
A glorious day this will be! Praise God, no more tears, not tears! An awesome Father, God is.
No pain is what I meant to say.
Amen, God is good! Thank You, Lord, for blessing the ministry of Gospel for Asia, for keeping You hand of blessing and protection on those who labor for you in the field and for all who are behind the scenes serving You so these native missionaries can be Your hands and feet in Asia.
Only God can perform such a miracle! All glory to Him!
I have had experiences where GOd has healed me and to hear of Abilash’s story is so exciting and encouraging to see God’s love demonstrated in such a miraculous way. I am so thankful for God’s endless love that is so personal!
That is right, pain is the tool God uses to speak to us. To break down walls, distractions, and illusions. In that agony of discomfort, God fills our view, becoming the medicine that we recognize and declare we need desperately. God is truly the great physician that will go to great lengths to rescue us for eternity!
