How God Healed Me Overnight

how god healed me overnight

For four days in a row I had been fighting a stomach virus/flu in my stomach so bad that words cannot express. Every time I ate something, since one Friday morning — it’s now Tuesday afternoon as I write this — my stomach would cramp up so bad. I would have to involuntarily or voluntarily force myself to throw up to make my stomach stop hurting and/or to have the pain subside.

Then the cycle would begin again — eat a meal, have stomach pain, throw up, pain subsides and/or goes away until the next meal. I’ve been putting an electric blanket on my stomach, and that seemed to help some. Sometimes I would take Motrin with little effect, since it just got thrown up.

Nonetheless, on the fourth night, I was trying to throw up. It would not move. I was having dry heaves and bad stomach pain.

Throwing up was the only way to make the pain in my stomach stop, or at least lessen. Being at my wits end, I started crying. I prayed, right then and there, slumped over the toilet bowel, that the Lord would help me cleanse my system. I vomited alot after I prayed.

I went into the bedroom to lay down. I knelt down beside the bed first and said my prayers. I prayed that the Lord would heal my stomach and make it stop hurting. When I got into bed, my stomach still hurt, and my back was achy. I couldn’t just lay still in bed being that uncomfortable.

Then I went into the kitchen and got some water. I was prepared to stay up all night drinking water and throwing up, if I had to, to get rid of this thing once and for all. I took the water into the living room and bundled myself up on the couch.

About 45 minutes later, I felt this sweeping feeling start moving across my back. It started on the right side of my back, moved literally through my spinal cord, and exited the left side of my body. The sweeping across my back actually felt like parasitic bugs running through my system.

I felt them exit through the skin, my pores, on the left side of my back. The stomach pain lifted instantly. In fact, I felt as if I could sing from the highest mountain! I went to bed on the fourth night at about 10:00 p.m. and said “Thank you” to God all night, in my sleep, for the miraculous and instantaneous healing.

My stomach doesn’t hurt anymore today, and I’m not throwing up. This morning, I was able to keep the first meal down without pain and/or throwing up in four days. I did feel drained on the day after the 4th night and was dizzy and lightheaded in the shower. I guess that’s from all that I’ve been through, but all I can say is: Amen and thank you Jesus!!!

The Power of Prayer is awesome. I will never forget the feeling of how a herd of bug germs literally ran like that from my system and exited through my skin.

I just had to share this story with you to encourage you if and/or when attacks on your health try to invade your body. There is power in prayer in the name of Jesus if we just persevere and stand on God’s Word when we pray, and stand against the enemy when sickness tries to take a hold in our bodies.

I love you, Lord. Thank you for healing me!!!

With God’s Love,
Valerie Gilbert

    • HealingfromGod says:

      Hi Amanda,

      Father God I lift up a prayer for your precious daughter Amanda. She has been sick for awhile Father and I can tell how tired and drained she is from it, I ask that you please heal her, please touch her and let her be like new again. I ask that in the meantime as she waits for your perfect timing, please give the strength to continue, please speak to her heart and let her hear and feel your presence.

      I pray that you move in her life and let her know that you haven’t given up on her and that you are right there with her, holding her. I pray this in Jesus might name, Amen.

    • Ben P. Davies says:

      Amanda, I am sorry for your illness. I want you to put on your courage. Let it get stronger! Though it sounds difficult, but healing comes from God no matter what medicine or doctor you visit. The more you trust Him when things seem not to be working or when He seems to be far from you, He moves on your behalf in a remarkable way at His own time, not your time! Just like Lazarus in the Holy Bible, whose death made Christ to weep because He shared the groaning with Mary and Martha, his death was meant to bring glory to God in front of the unbelievers. So, is your situation. Your illness will bring you closer to God and give you a testimony that won’t leave your mouth as long as you live. Do not give up on Him, without Him nothing works.
      I am praying with you..God bless you.

  • Bola says:

    I need prayers for my daughter, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis about 2 years ago. Between the time of diagnosis and now, she has had multiple relapse, it saddens me to see my daughter being so physically dependent as she is now, because she was a very agile woman before this diagnosis. I am trusting God almighty for her total and perfect healing, please uphold her in prayers for me, her name is Margaret Mary.

    • HealingfromGod says:

      Hi Bola,

      I’m terribly sorry to hear about your daughter. One of my family members also has MS so I now how difficult it can be to watch.

      Father God, I come before you to really ask and beg that you please help Margaret, Father I know that you can heal her, one touch with your hand and you can heal her and help alleviate a huge burden that Margaret and her entire family has to go through. Please give them all strength, help their faith be renewed as they read your word and help them to really trust in your promises.

      I ask that you please comfort them, wrap your arms around Margaret and give her a big hug so she knows that you are with her. I pray this in Jesus name, Amen.

      I would love to connect with you Bola, feel free to message the facebook page if you want. Take care and will keep you all in my prayers.

  • Ben P. Davies says:

    Friends, my name is Ben Pape Davies, and writing to encourage you that indeed God is able. What we all need to do in order to get Him answering is to be focused and keep our eyes on Him in prayers….answers are found in prayers. When you pray with a contrite heart, He does the unthinkable, the impossible..and the miracle. I am a testimony of His unfailing power and sovereignty. He turned things around for me and delivered my daughter from the devil. Read my testimony on facebook in “Window of testimony”. There you will know how God did it and you will be encouraged and strengthened. Do not hesitate to check it up! It’s amazing!
    Let the Lord answer you. Amen!

    • Amanda says:

      I had this same feeling of bugs and it happened nearly the same way and direction! It was something I’ll never forget. And I dont believe it is coincidence that these prayer are for Amanda. It is my name too. Just what I needed to encourage me 10 years after they were posted! God is good! I trust He has already moved. I am trusting in His promises for us all!

    • Marlene says:

      My daughter is in rveceory from an opiate addiction. She has been clean for one year. Prior to her rveceory, however, I had to learn to stop enabling. In the beginning, she would manipulate me mercilessly, and I would allow her to come back home to live for a while. She would regroup between Roxy binging and then go right back out and binge again. At that time in my life my soul felt horribly vexed. I knew something was off. Finally the Lord led me to Celebrate Recovery, and I learned to stop enabling.
