Through Sickness, a Grandfather Finds Eternal Life

Hopeless and helpless, Prajval could only observe as his 1-year-old grandson suffered and grew weak, plagued by near-constant diarrhea and vomiting. The boy’s parents also could do nothing but stand by and watch as their son suffered. Prajval’s heart was heavy. Was there anything more they could do?

Sickness Prevails

Prajval and his fathers before him prayed to their ancestors for blessings. However, there were many in Prajval’s family who had suffered from various illnesses, some ultimately perishing. When Prajval’s grandson was born, the family rejoiced, but the young boy, too, fell ill. The child’s parents took him to a doctor, but the prescribed medicine did nothing.

Physical remedies exhausted, they pursued a spiritual one. The family took the ailing boy to a nearby traditional priest, hoping he could heal him. But the child still suffered, growing weaker and weaker as time passed. Prajval and his family could only watch, helpless.

Prajval and his grandson (not pictured) now worship the Great Healer.

Meeting the Healer of All

Amidst this family’s struggles, they met a member of a congregation led by Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor Sarish. This believer, seeing the pitiful state of the boy, offered to pray for the child, encouraging the family that God could do a miracle. The very next day, the believer brought Pastor Sarish with him to visit the family. Prajval watched as these two Christians prayed over his bedridden grandson. Was this Jesus the answer when all else had failed?

After praying for the sick boy, Pastor Sarish invited Prajval and his family to attend the church on Sunday. Curious and hopeful, they brought the boy to the church. There, Prajval saw something extraordinary: His ailing grandson was completely and totally healed! Witnessing this miraculous healing, Prajval and his entire family chose to set their hope in Christ.

“My grandchild was so sick,” Prajval said. “We took him to many hospitals and [followed many rituals], but the child did not get healed. But Pastor Sarish and his believers prayed for him. God did a miracle in his life. Today, by God’s grace, he is completely healed.”

Now, grandfather and grandson, along with their entire family, worship and praise God with fellow believers.

    Yes, the LORD Jesus still heals. Please pray for my sister, Glen, diagnosed with colon cancer in 2015. She’s on a break from Chemo some 7 weeks now and is seeking to build up her immune system with exercise and stepped-up nutrition. Pray also for our sister, Grace who is diagnosed as bipolar. Thanks.

    Dear Father God, You tell us that where two or three are gathered in Your Name You are there with us. We are asking You for healing now for Susan from the hand dystopia and the fibroids on her womb. Please heal her LORD, in the deepest places of her body and soul. We pray also for complete healing in mind, body, soul, spirit, and relationships for Glen, Grace, and Leslie. We stand in agreement in Jesus’ Name. Thank You Father. Amen.

    Dear heavenly Father, we join our hearts to pray for all those sick and poorly in one or the other and ask that you the Great Healer restore them back to health. Comfort and strengthen them and may they experience Your love and mercy every day of their lives. For those (medical personnel, family and friends) helping to care for them, may You empower them with Grace and strengthen them also, may they know with certainty in their spirit that NOTHING IS TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOU O LORD….in Jesus name….Amen
