A-Fib Patient Story #88
My A-Fib Story: The Healing Power of Prayer
By AGL, August 2016
A-Fib Medications Didn’t Work
I struggled with A-Fib for almost eight months in the year of 2011. It began in January, and I had episodes of it throughout the year. My episodes weren’t too bad—as in I never had any side effects of the A-Fib like fainting or clotting. The only real thing I had during the episodes was an irregular heartbeat and a fast heart rate.
Being as young as I am and having a family of my own, it was a lot to have on my shoulders.
I wanted the A-Fib gone, and the medication I was taking did not make it go away.
My Pastors Prayed for My Healing
I knew of another way that the A-Fib could go away—by God supernaturally healing me. Well, in August of 2011 I asked the pastors of my church to pray for me that God would heal me. After the Sunday service they prayed for me. And a week after that my A-Fib was gone. I was healed by prayer.
I haven’t had an episode or problem since 2011! It’s a miracle!
Helped by Great Physicians Too
I am not writing this to refute your book, Steve, nor am I saying that the medical field should not be called upon for help in the time of need.
If it wasn’t for the great physicians here where I live on the East Coast, I would be in bad shape—who knows what would have happened if they didn’t break those episodes I had. And, I’ve read testimonies of others where medicine helped them with, if not cured, their A-Fib episodes.
I simply wanted to share with you my experience – since it included A-Fib. Who knows—maybe God can bless you through my e-mail.

There’s more to hope than we thought. Hope triggers biochemical changes.
Written by an oncologist and citing actual patient cases (mostly cancer), Dr. Groopman explores the role of hope in fighting disease and healing. Top scientists are interviewed who study the biological link between emotion and biological responses; the most relevant studies are reviewed.
The author shows how hope, belief and expectations can alter the course of our lives, and even of our physical body. HOPE works! (Read Patti’s review on Amazon.com.)
