Christian Today reports that Fadila (whose real name is not being used for security reasons) was concerned when her mother became sick. Her mother’s condition quickly worsened. She suffered a stroke and became bedridden. The family didn’t know what to do. Eventually one of Fadila’s brothers brought two men to the house, telling the rest of the family that the men were “men of God” who have “gifts of healing.”
The family agreed to allow the men to pray over their mother, not knowing the men were not Muslims. “One man prayed. I felt uncomfortable, because it was different than Muslim du’a (prayer),” Fadila said. “He was using Jesus’ name in his prayers.” When Fadila found out the two men were Christians, she became angry and ordered them to leave the house. But then something happened.
Their mother, who had been unable to move, was struggling to get up from her bed. “We helped her and she sat erect and then stood on the floor,” Fadila said. Their mother told the family that while the men prayed over her she saw Jesus and that he had touched her with his nail-pierced hands. She felt a light covering her and knew that she had been healed. “She asked the pastor to pardon me and also asked him to pray for my brother who is an alcoholic,” Fadila said.

PRAISE God for His power to touch people in their need. Pray that many Muslims will know Jesus’ power.
