I attended for a personal prayer time on 12 April 2017.
I had been suffering from macula oedema in my right eye since September 2016. This probably arose from radiation damage during radiotherapy following the successful removal of a skull tumour in September 2014.
God is good and a leading ophthalmologist sought treatment for me, even though it was hard to set up because there seemed to be no clear pathway to support the treatment of people with macula oedema caused by radiation damage. This was because there were so few of us nationwide.
The treatment involved monthly injections into the damaged eye. Between September and November 2016 there was some degree of healing before injections began. However from November 2016 to April 2017 scans showed a worsening of the condition each month.
We had a lot of prayer support from family and friends and carried on in faith despite the worsening of my vision. In April I was given the option of receiving another injection or going onto monitoring only, given my eye’s lack of response to treatment at that time.
I feel that God gave me wisdom and I asked for another injection. That was on 11 April and the day after I had an appointment for personal healing prayer at the Well.
The two prayer intercessors who welcomed me and my husband were very kind, wise and godly in their approach and their healing ministry was rooted deeply in God’s word. I also knew that they would keep my personal details in confidence, something I have not experienced with all intercessors.
They prayed graciously for my physical healing and for the removal of any psychological and spiritual blocks that might hinder healing. There was a sense of peace.
The May monthly consultation at the Eye Hospital did not run. However my vision was tested by the nursing and scan teams on 28 May 2017. At this point I had had no medical treatment since 11 April but I had had intercessory and healing prayer. My reading chart result had improved by two or more lines, praise the Lord!
