Healing of a sick newborn baby with prayer.

Updated on November 3, 2016


Testimony: Faith in Action.

Faith is an action most Christians struggle with. They pray for healing and only upon receiving it do they thank God. So they wait to see the fruit first.

Faith acts upon the fruit as though it has already been received. You pray for healing and you start thanking God for it as if you have already received it, and then it will happen.

Faith is one of the areas where we all as Christians can improve and grow spiritually. The word says something interesting about faith.

Hebrews 11:6: No one can please God without faith, for whoever comes to God must have faith that God exists and rewards those who seek him. (GNB)

Romans 10:17: So then, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message comes through preaching Christ (GNB)


One day when we arrived at church, one of the elders from the church approached us and said that there was a woman sitting in her car outside the church, and that we must go and look after her.

We went out and there she was sitting in her car and crying. She was there because she did not know where else to go and she was on the verge of suicide.

She was really desperate and did not know where to turn if the church did not help her.

I remembered a time when we were desperate and the church did not help us.

We decided that the right thing was to help her. In the car were all her earthly possessions and also a newborn baby. She had lost everything and needed a place to stay urgently. We took her home and set her up in the granny flat that we had.

As the days went by we counselled her and we slowly built a relationship with her.

She gave her heart to Yeshua (Jesus). She was withdrawn and she kept to herself.

Then one night she came and knocked on the door for help because her baby was very sick. We sent my children to go and fetch a male nurse living a few houses away and shortly he arrived.

After examining the child he concluded that the child was very sick, with a very high life threatening fever, and insisted that we take the baby to the hospital immediately. In faith and full of the Holy Spirit, I suggested that we pray for the baby. The mother, the male nurse and my wife disagreed and were getting ready to take the baby to hospital.

The male nurse phoned a doctor out of bed, who was ready to meet them at hospital, because of the urgency of the matter. While they were busy arranging with the hospital I took the baby and gave it to the male nurse’s wife to hold and I asked her if she believed that God can heal this baby.

She was full of faith and we prayed the prayer of agreement and in faith and we trusted God for total healing. Shortly after, the others came and took the baby and they sped away to hospital.

Before they went I told them that the baby was healed because we had prayed, but they all looked at me as though I was mad, thinking that I did not see the urgency of the matter. The baby was blood red with fever, breathing feebly and very ill.

They took the baby and left.

I was left alone and I cried out to Yeshua, not understanding their unbelief.

I started to pray and trust God in faith, thanking Him for healing of the baby. An half an hour went past before I heard them returning from Hospital, much sooner than I had expected.

Curious, I went to meet them and they were all stunned and speechless. I asked them what the matter was and why they were back so soon. The male nurse then showed me the baby. She looked good, had no fever, was breathing normally and slept soundly. I started rejoicing and blessing God for this miraculous healing.

They told me that when they had arrived at the hospital the Doctor was waiting there in his pyjamas and rushed the baby to the emergency unit. As the doctor examined the baby, he found that the baby was totally normal. He was angry with the nurse for chasing him out of bed and causing him to drive like a lunatic just to find a normal, healthy, sleeping baby.

They were all speechless, knowing that this baby was critically ill and that the baby had had a very high fever, and had difficultly breathing.

Matthew 4:24:--- and Yeshua healed them all. (GNB)

I rejoiced and praised God for using me to pray for the baby and I was not ashamed, but the people who did not believe that God would heal the baby were ashamed.

The woman who prayed with me also rejoiced in the Lord. I know that God is a doer of His word and that God is a rewarder to those who live in faith.

      Absolutely beautiful Hub!! Yes I have faith and I know that even those who say that they do not believe also have faith. They have faith that they will wake up in the morning, that their car will start, that they will go to work the next day..... This is faith whether they believe it or not. God is the maker and keeper of our faith, so we all have faith to some degree. I believe in miracles and the power of healing prayer. Thank you for sharing a awesome story!!
