Hindu Woman's 99% Heart Blockage Healed! - SARA, BANGALORE

I was born in a Hindu family. I was suffering from blockage in my heart. I had 99% blockage and my condition was very serious. I was taken to the doctor and they told me that my condition was very bad and hence I should be operated immediately. The operation was very expensive and we could not afford it. We were drowned in debts. The doctors also told me that even if I underwent a surgery they would not guarantee my life. Every thing looked dark and uncertain. It was during this time that some one advised me to visit Divine. I decided to come over here and pray to Jesus to heal me. I had just begun to know about Jesus. I prayed and cried to Him to come to my rescue. Though I did not know this God, He knew me and loved me.

After the retreat I went back home and visited another hospital where heart surgery was done freely. I also registered my name there and luckily I was called. The doctors took my scan and were surprised that I was living for so long as I had 99% block. The operation was fixed for the next day and I came home to prepare myself for the operation. That night I surrendered my life to Jesus and went to bed. I had a very strange dream. Jesus appeared in my dream and he stretched his hands and removed something from my heart. They appeared like tubes filled with blood. I saw them being thrown on the ground. I suddenly woke up and realized that it was dream, but a firm voice within me said that I was healed. I was also confident that I was healed!

I told my husband and he said let’s go to the hospital. I went and the doctors had made all arrangements for the operation. I was taken to the operation theatre and the main doctor came in. He suddenly said, “let us take another scan,” and so I was taken out of the operation theatre for a second scan. To the utter surprise of the doctors, my reports showed everything wasnormal! All the blocks were gone!! The doctors once again referred to the old reports and could not believe their eyes about the outcome. They said it was impossible - only God whom you trusted could have done this. I knew it was no one else but my dear Jesus whom I love very much has done this for me! I came to Divine to thank and praise my Lord for healing me.

During those days we were also going through a lot of financial crisis and our debts were mounting up due to the huge interest that we had to pay to the bank and other moneylenders. This time I asked the Lord to help me come out of my financial problem. I asked the Lord to change the mind of the moneylenders that they may not collect interest from me. Back home once again this Wonder Worker worked a miracle for me. The moneylenders told me to pay only the principle amount and that they did not want any interest for the loan.

Today I have cleared all my debts and I am also free from my heart problem. I am leading a normal, happy and holy life. My husband and I have accepted Jesus as our family God and we have become His Children. We do not worship any other God but Jesus. Alleluia!!
