A Prayer and A Healing

In the early 1990s, Sis. Marife Doldolea was a pastor in another church. But though she preached healing, she herself wasn’t healed of her leukemia. Every week, she had to undergo blood transfusion. But later on, her body rejected it, for she would urinate blood after transfusion.

To add to her suffering, around 1994, Sis. Marife was diagnosed with colon cancer. She underwent surgery three times to remove diseased portions of her intestines. She called it “cut-and-connect” operation. But despite the surgeries, her intestines were inflammed, her stomach was bloated, and her wound refused to heal. She didn’t undergo chemotherapy.

Sis. Marife became bed-ridden. The pain from her bloated stomach was too much for her to bear that she would request a new blade and open up her wound herself to let out the puss.

One day, feeling so sick and hopeless, she prayed, “Lord God, if You still have a plan for my life, please heal me so I could carry out Your plan.” Then she heard a voice say, “Child, you go to JESUS MIRACLE CRUSADE INTERNATIONAL MINISTRY. There you’ll be healed.” Sis. Marife thought for a moment, “This is the church I used to persecute.”

But Sis. Marife obeyed the voice and went anyway. Lying on a cot, she was brought to the crusade of JMCIM at the Quirino Grandstand, Luneta Park, Manila. 

When the Jesus Finest Generation Choir sang “The Lord’s Prayer”, she did her best to raise both hands and with eyes tightly closed, she joined in singing. She felt two big hands held her upraised hands. Then she felt that she was slowly raised from her cot, so she opened her eyes and looked, but only saw the people praising and worshiping. Again, she closed her eyes and continued to sing, and again, she felt herself being raised from her bed. She could feel that she was really floating and she felt good. When she dared open her eyes again, she only saw clouds!

After the singing of the Finest Choir, Sis. Marife was relieved of her pains and her bloated stomach returned to normal. That night, she received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. She wasn’t baptized in water yet for her wound was still very fresh.

Later on after Sis. Marife was baptized in water in Jesus’ name, she instantly received complete healing of her colon cancer and leukemia. She surrendered her life fully to the Lord and has been serving Him faithfully to this day. She sings in the Adults Choir and ministers in Bible Study groups and in JMCIM jail ministry.

Halleluia! To God be the glory!

– Sis. Rina R. Peru
