In late May or June, I attended a Wednesday morning prayer service. I had arthritis for years; I could hardly sit or stand without a lot of effort and support. After prayer, I could stand up, sit down and walk, etc. without any support. R.
July 19th - R. reports she remains healed. Praise be to Jesus Christ, our Healer!
Dear Awesome Grace Center,
“My name is L.H. and I was blessed to attend a healing appointment a few weeks ago and the awesome Day of Healing Prayer last Saturday. I wanted to let you know the profound impact these sessions have had on my mental health and my walk with our Lord and Savior.
I was an emotional wreck when I met with J and J for prayer. They were able to identify and pray for me after realizing I had unwittingly partnered with fear. Not only did they pray for release and healing, they provided me with spiritual strategies and Bible verses to successfully enhance my detachment from this awful stronghold. God has blessed me with a new outlook and although I am, (and always will be) a work in progress, I have a redeemed spirit and unbelievable hope. I left a new spiritual person. They invited me to attend the Saturday Day of healing Prayer. The speakers were profound, and even though I wasn’t able to stay the whole time…… the prayer ministers prayed over me and helped me identify more strongholds and how to effectively deal with them through the grace and love of God, Jesus and Holy Spirit. I am writing to say THANK YOU and let you know the profound effect you have on broken souls and how much your support and spread of God’s love has affected me/ the community”.
“I didn’t know what to expect coming in today. I grew up in a Baptist Church, so some of the things were unfamiliar to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I felt like I was able to forgive many people from my past, myself included. Spirits of abandonment, rejection, sexual addiction and pride were forced out of me in Jesus’ name, and I am excited to see how my life will change”. JB
“I feel like I now have permission to laugh and not be so serious and take the burdens of the world onto myself. I feel encouraged in my journey- right where I am. I am where I am supposed to be. I feel like the Lord wants to begin deeper revelation and intimacy in my life. I am so glad I came!” Cheryl
"Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest". Matthew 11:28
I met with M and J last Thursday and it was such a huge blessing to me. The encouragement, spiritual insight and prayer from both of them was so powerful. It was so refreshing in a very tough season to have prayer warriors of God lift me up to Jesus. That time spent with them was so encouraging and I could feel the holy spirit like a current within my body. Burdens were lifted and I left feeling lighter and free. It encouraged me to keep pressing on with Jesus in a world where others may tell me to leave my husband and divorce him. It refueled my spirit to trust what Jesus is doing in my life and in my husbands life.
Thank you for this ministry. I want to come back and my husband would like to come as well hopefully before the end of the summer. SC
“I felt a heaviness lift and felt peace and joy. Anxiety and fear left me. I experienced God’s healing from deep hurts and abuse since childhood”. Liz
“Received a lifting of a huge burden. The root of the problem was revealed. Healing was done in my body, knees and joints”. Syrentha
“Felt a release from many things I was carrying. I saw a vision of someone in my past during the quiet time. Was very interesting…I’ll be praying to know why I saw this person. Felt like the Lord reminded me that He wants to give me the desires of my heart”. Suzanne
“After my individual prayer time, I felt just physically and spiritually lighter”. Genny
“To begin with, I’ve struggled with pain in my knees for years. A word was given to do a prophetic act of gathering together, and I felt the heat of God’s power touch my knees. I believe I’ve been healed. I could kneel down with no problems”. Richard
(Follow-up one week later: “Yes, my knees still seem to be fine”.)
I was so excited to be here this evening. The presence of the Lord entered my body as several prayer ministers prayed for healing over me. The Holy Spirit healed a long time pain in my hip and for the first time in over a year, I could reach my foot and tie my own shoe. Thank you God! BM
Thank you so much for the Day of Healing Prayer on Saturday, 8/13/2016...this is twice now God has physically healed me through the ministry at the Grace Center of Charleston (and that is besides the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual healing that has happened while seeing Dr. Angel Weaver for counseling over the course of several years now)!
The first physical healing I experienced at the Grace Center was during one of your Healing Worship services in February 2016. Though I had no idea who she was, a prayer minister asked to pray for my stomach...how could she have known I was in pain, and procedures from my GI doctor weren't working like they used to? How could she have known I was losing weight, and had to think carefully about everything I ate, still to no avail? It was so humbling how God put my needs on someone else's heart, even that of a complete stranger!!!
My stomach started acting up again this summer, and I can see now some of how God wanted to grow me and teach me lessons through that process. I came to the Day of Healing Prayer on 8/13/2016 desperate...my stomach was hurting so badly that morning I had to step out of the room several times to get away and run to the bathroom. I'm supposed to start a new job soon, and with this pain, I started losing heart.
During my prayer appointment, the prayer minister prayed to loose anything that a spirit might be binding...funny enough, "bound up" is exactly what is wrong with my stomach (a condition called gastroparesis, which literally means "paralyzed stomach," where food just sits there). The other prayer minister also prayed away the spirit of anorexia, another struggle I have had in the past. When they both prayed, I literally could feel my stomach pain loosening...I didn't share my testimony that day because I was still processing what had happened, but wanted to let you know now!
God has put on my heart that I need to keep following Him and the lessons He taught me between these two healings ("See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you." - John 5:14), but also that this healing will be permanent. THANK YOU Grace Center of Charleston for believing that the God of the Bible still does great things today. I had been feeling called to do more with my life for God, but wasn't physically able...thank you for asking God to loose me from what was holding me back.
Follow-up three days later:
I've been realizing more of what this healing means over the past couple of days. I could just cry right now. I didn't realize how much I was struggling until God took it away...I had a productive day today, and little things happened, like getting cleaned up/taking a shower didn't exhaust me or make my stomach hurt!!! I feel like I can handle the stresses of life better/like I'm going to God more with things. Thank you SO MUCH for what you do to invite God to move through the Grace Center.
From one of our friends:
"On June 22 we brought our friends from Indiana to prayer at the Grace Center. Your son was there that day and called out my friend and asked if he could pray with her. I just got a note from her today that she has been free from anxiety and panic attacks since he prayed with her!
To God be the glory for answered prayer."
Come on Jesus!!! Panic Attacks Gone!!

I want to share some awesome news. Joseph has been sober for 28 days. It is a true miracle. When I left him after Christmas, I thought he would drink himself dead. He was that determined to drink in excess. God intervened. Not sure what happened- all I need to know is who is responsible and we both know He did it. I have been praising Him ever since. Satan tried to use fear of a relapse to prevent me from praising and getting excited. I wouldn't let him get in my way of dancing!
Joseph's legal issues are still there, but I feel he will handle them better sober.
I thank you from the bottom of a grateful mother's heart. I played our session a couple times at his place while he was gone. It felt powerful. I have been listening periodically and have found true peace each time.
God bless you and your ministry.
Update received on March 7, 2016
Joseph continues in his sobriety. It is now 60 plus days. The other day, he shared with me the story of his sobriety. I had not pushed him into telling me previously. One day, he drank up to 15 beers and the alcohol did nothing for him. It did not make him happy or allow him to escape his problems. He decided right then and there that he was done with alcohol.
His story is a true miracle. God delivered him from alcohol. Our prayers were answered in an amazing way.
Thank you for your dedication that led to helping Joseph and I.
Thank-you for corresponding with me.
When I was at the soaking on January 23, I was amazed at the word that came forth that day and as I stated when I was there I knew those words from Pastor Jack was God speaking directly to me.
In 2013 ( JANUARY ) I had cancer in my right breast . It was taken care of with surgery and chemo and radiation and I've been followed pretty closely since then.
By August of 2013 I was finished with 2 rounds of chemo and was scheduled to begin radiation when my husband became ill. I finished radiation in September and he died in October.
The last two years have been very difficult for me. We were married for 45 years and I was devastated when he passed away. But God said that he would never leave me or forsake me, He advises me to keep my eyes on him and not waver. I must never forget all the situations he has brought me through. And the most important thing is to remember that with his blood, JESUS purchased men for God and that means me !!.
On Thursday 01/21/16 I had a mammogram and I was told the left breast seemed to have something suspicious there and I needed a needle biopsy which I had the next day 01/22, the Friday before the soaking. I got the results of that TODAY and it was NEGATIVE! ----------------Only benign tissue.
Praise God for his teachings on Prayer, I praise God for his every Word. I praise God for Preachers and Encouragers and Prayer Warriors.
I admit that I was a little apprehensive when I was told that the mammogram looked suspicious but when I went home I asked God to give me his peace. And he did. I went the next day and did the biopsy and did not even tell my children about it.
When I got there and checked in the young man at the desk started talking about the youth in his church and that lead to a conversation about how FAITHFUL God is. After the biopsy the attendant who was assigned to me that day told me she was going to pray for my good results. And that led to another short conversation about the goodness of our God. When I left out of that place I was so calm and peaceful and I knew that no matter what I AM A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH AND I AM HEALED NO MATTER THE RESULT.
The day after the biopsy was the soaking and it's AMAZING HOW I HAD SCHEDULED THAT IN OCTOBER OR NOVEMBER of 2015. And it was scheduled for just when I needed it. God in his wisdom is awesome and He is ALWAYS on time . The Word and the atmosphere at the soaking on 01/23 showed me that "His eye is on the sparrow and I know that He is watching me ".
Thank- you for adhering to Gods call on your life, thank-you for how you perform it, IT'S PERFECT!
WITH THE LOVE OF CHRIST, YOUR SISTER;
