Hip replacement no longer needed

I have had joint pain for almost 28 years and my left hip had gotten so bad that I called my doctor to look into having surgery. I have been taking lots of supplements for years for my joints but it kept hurting. I would wake up at night because of the pain and sometimes my left hip would lock up. I asked for prayer for it last sunday at church it hurt so bad Wednsday that I called my PACT Team nurse and told her to make me a appointment. I layed in bed in pain and I had decided to have surgery but then I remembered that the Bible says "by his stripes we were healed so I prayed for it to be healed and I told the Lord I didn't want a hip replacement but that I was standing on his Word. The next day I was pain free and today I climbed stairs with no pain at all and I even jumped up and down, no pain. I'm going to buy a bicycle and get this fat belly off of me. before I couldn't ride a bike because of joint pain but now even my knees are better. Praise the Mighty name of Jesus.
Matthew 8:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 This fulfilled the word of the Lord through the prophet Isaiah, who said,
“He took our sicknesses
and removed our diseases.”[a]

Amen, Brother!
Your testimony will reflect the power of God!
I had a similar experience after Knee Replacement Surgery .A few days later I had 2 Ulcers rupture and I lost 5 pints of blood. Dr said that I should have died. The power of our God not only kept me alive, but also healed me. The ulcers are gone and I am Healed ! I am walking and running again and lifting weights. These are our miracles that you must claim and tell others of the power of our God ! Amen!

Thats awesome bro. I was healed from blockages in my arteries when I was 50, I was scheduled for surgery but when I came in for my presurgery ultrasound they said there were no blockages found and now I don't even need blood thinner.

Too bad it's used by so few.

I tore my left knee's meniscus pretty badly just before Thanksgiving, and (finally, thank you workman's comp ) had surgery just under 90 days ago. Tomorrow I'm flying over to Maryland to negotiate the final hurdles for selection for training as a Postal Inspector... Tuesday I'll be running 1.5 miles on an unpowered flat deck treadmill for time... I've been consistently doing 16:15 or so on a 1.65 mile track. Not the best time, but for a 59 year old FOG who still had difficulty with stairs 30 days go, I consider it a minor miracle, which I attribute to the arrival of Mother Mary in my patio last month. Prayers seeking her intercession have been answered.

While I may not get the job, I am whole again.

God never stopped doing miracles. People just stopped expecting them. Glad it worked out for you!

Great to hear and I am glad you're hip is improving.

My mother had horrible pain for 10 mos due to her chemo - the pain specialist could not get this under control. I never ask people for prayers but a my usher meeting before service I asked. That Tuesday her pain specialist tried steroids and the next day we got her pain under control.

I have seen many people get healed in my life, back in 96' I prayed for a man at the VA who had stage 4 cancer, he was on his last chemo bottle that day and he was being sent home to die. I showed him Isaiah 53 and 1Peter 2:24 and witnessed to him. I took him to church with me and Jesus healed him from cancer.

Awesome, hope you continue to get better. I agree the power of prayers is immense as I've personally benefited multiple times.

Wow. I'm very glad you got better foxcolt13, and everyone else whom was healed through the power of God. It is inspiring, and also right on time. My mother just had hip surgery May 28th and is healing and feeling better. My stepdad is a religious man, and I'm sure has been spreading the good word to her through this time she is having (she also was healed from lung cancer and menengitis).

God is an awesome God indeed x1,000,000,000,000+

Take it from an ABM with Osteoarthritis in both knees and four screws broken away from a metal rod attached to his femur which the dumbass broke twice within a four (4) month period.

If I just so happen too move away from an "anti-inflammation" diet and naproxen...prayer increases!

Good luck and best wishes w/prayers!

I walked two miles today with no pain. I have been walking a mile aday since I got healed but today was cool so I stepped it up. I should be ready for a small ruck soon and some trails. I had a nice backpack assortment but I sold them all because I had ssome much pain and couldn't use them.
