This is a story of a healing that took place in my life, and I will never be the same again.  I was 47 years old, married, and working as an electrician.  Life was good!  I loved my job, my wife, and the Lord Jesus.  I was active in ministry at my church.  Little did I know that my life was about to be turned upside down and that I was about to lose everything.

It all started with a cough that would not go away.  Day and night I could not stop coughing.  I saw a doctor who after looking at my x-rays
informed me that half of my lungs were being overtaken by a chronic lung disease.  I was in shock!  I was referred to a specialist who was unable to successfully treat my disease.  I progressively got worse and lost more and more lung capacity.  I was then referred to the Mayo Clinic were I met with one of the best lung doctors in the state of Minnesota.  Despite the doctor’s efforts, I continued to get worse.  I was struggling just to breath and was looking at the possibility that I was going to die.

All along this journey, I had people praying for me.  One day after being prayed for, I felt that God had touched me.  There was a noticeable improvement in my breathing.  When I went back to the doctor for a routine exam, he looked at my x-rays and said, “Wow, your lungs are far better than I could ever have expected.”  I shared with him that I was a Christian and that I had received an answer to prayer.

Today the disease has completely stopped.  I am off of all medications.  My last visit to the Mayo Clinic showed that I am regaining my lung capacity.

Praise God,
Steve Thill
