Dementia Yields to Prayer

For more than seven years, Dawn’s stepfather, Ed, had been in a dementia “neighborhood” of his nursing home. After attending The Case for Healing small group at the beginning of 2017, Dawn began to pray for and declare her stepfather’s healing, and, in early May, she was informed that he had scored his highest BIMS score (used to evaluate cognition) since arriving at the facility seven years prior. In fact, the staff was so surprised that they ran the test again with more supervision only to obtain the same result. Ed’s score was so high that he has been moved to a better “neighborhood” within the facility that fosters increased patient socialization.
