The Falls Church Anglican: The Long March to Healing Ministry Excellence


Testimonies of God’s Healing

The Rev. Christopher was kind enough to supply this author with various cases of healing that have occurred at Falls Church Anglican over the years. Here are a few, all of which are anonymous:

At church Sunday, a woman slipped and fell on the wet floor at Bishop O’Connell [This was back when The Falls Church Anglican rented Bp. O’Connell High School auditorium for Sunday worship.] just before the 9am service. She hurt her knee, managed to rise, then fell again, damaging her lower leg and ankle. Three healing prayer ministers came quickly, found her splayed across the floor just outside the auditorium doors, and prayed hands on for her, and she claimed healing for the swelling knee. PTL! Someone apparently helped her inside the auditorium for the service. Then another prayer minister found her sitting in the back. She said her knee was better but the lower leg and ankle were still bad and hurting. Later, during a prayer time in the service, the prayer minister prayed hands on for the damaged lower leg and ankle. After the service, she was beaming with a big smile and walking around completely well over by the cafeteria. She said she had been completely healed! Praise God!

He had no medical way of explaining the miraculous results.

A couple months ago a large growth was discovered on my mother’s pancreas. Knowing the severity of pancreatic cancer, my family was devastated. My mom was rushed in for emergency surgery to have the area tested. We were praying the fluid within the growth would be clear, but instead we received the dreaded news that it was full of a “mucous” material, indicating that it was either cancerous or pre-cancerous with the likelihood of becoming cancerous quickly. While we waited for another two weeks to find out the exact details of the cells, her doctor explained the process of the planned upcoming surgery to try to remove it. Due to the fact the growth was communicating with her pancreatic duct, the surgery would require the partial removal of 5 organs and had an extremely high mortality rate. This was definitely the hardest week for my family. Although we all knew firsthand that God not only can but does heal, fear had a way of sneaking in on many days. It was during these long two weeks that my family went to meet for individual prayer one Tuesday afternoon with two wonderful women on the prayer team. A few days after our prayer together, the test results of the cells finally came in. The doctor began by sharing that in the 30+ years he’s been a pancreatic specialist, he has only once before seen a growth contain mucous fluid and yet not contain cancerous/pre-cancerous cells—my mom was now his second occurrence. [smile] He had no medical way of explaining the miraculous results. Thank you so much again for your prayers—they meant so much to me and my family!

I just wanted to let you know that my neurosurgeon said, “It’s a miracle—no surgery needed!” when he last saw me. Four days after running up a flight of stairs, tripping and hitting my right temple on the edge of a door (with full force!), passing out and ending up in the hospital—I was told I would need spinal surgery and possibly brain surgery to correct all of the damage that had taken place. I was given steroids to reduce the swelling in my brain but was making very slow progress in my recovery due to several factors (severe concussion, spinal damage and an unknown pre-existing chiari malformation in my brain). After coming to a night of healing prayer my recovery took a very rapid turn for the better. At each week since, I have become so much better, stronger and “clearer” that even the nurses in the office were literally clapping their hands to their face saying, “We don’t believe it!”

My wife was instantly cured from late stage 3/early stage 4 breast cancer. After fighting the cancer with surgery and chemotherapy the cancer was still spreading. It had moved into her lymphatic system and was quickly spreading throughout her entire body. A friend invited my wife to your healing service where she received prayer. The next day we got a new scan and the cancer was totally gone. That was 5 years ago.

Our son has a rare, serious colon disorder for which he has had a number of major surgeries and procedures since he was a newborn. The surgeries did not resolve his problems. Eventually it appeared that no surgical options were left except to give him one final colostomy. That would not be desirable, given how little colon he had left. Our now four-year-old son has not been able to have bowel movements on his own—he was dependent on a thrice daily medical procedure performed at home, which was not ideal for various reasons. Last month, our son received healing prayer. Exactly one week later, our son had his first self-controlled bowel movement on his own. And for the first time in years, we do not need to perform any daily medical procedures for our son. This is truly a miracle. The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

[The Rev. Kathleen Christopher, “We continued to follow this family, and their son was completely healed—able to go off medication for what was an ‘incurable’ condition.”]
