Mysterious Paralysis Healed
through Intercessory Prayers
Paul S. Wong
In the mid Seventies our family lived in
As more and more American Christian friends came to our Sabbath Services we had a House of Prayer in our home. The Lord Jesus Christ brought Christians from various denominations to worship with us on the Sabbath day. There were Catholics, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Disciples of Christ and even Messianic Jews.
Our family enjoyed the fellowship of all these Christians and the Lord really blessed our Sabbath Services. During one Sabbath service a pair of twin sisters who were Catholics requested prayer for their brother in
The doctors could not diagnose his illness and they had placed him in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). We prayed in one accord for this man who was thousands of miles away and we did not even know him.
That Sabbath afternoon at about 5:00 p.m. one of the twin sisters called me. She was really excited and told me that her brother had just called her from his home. He could not understand how suddenly at about 11:30 a.m. in the morning he was able to move his arms, legs and whole body. It was the exact time that we prayed for him during our Sabbath Services.
He got out of bed and went to the nurses' station and asked to be released from the hospital. The nurses were shocked and called the doctor to examine him. The doctor was perplexed and found nothing wrong with him.
The hospital released him at 1:00 p.m. He returned home and mowed the lawn in his front yard at 3:00 p.m. This healing miracle changed my attitude towards Christians of other denominations. Our Lord Jesus Christ have shown me that regardless of denomination, when Christians love one another, worship and pray in one accord on the Sabbath day He will honor their prayers. This healing miracle is a fulfillment of the promises given by our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." (Mt. 18:18-20)
“Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and keeps his hand from doing any evil. . . . . Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to the LORD, to serve Him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be His servants - Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My covenant - Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My House of Prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall be called a House of Prayer for all nations." (Isa. 56:2, 6-7)
