During the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020, Diana’s friend Nikki (pictured here on the right), who is not prone to getting sick, had been dealing for two days with the symptoms of fever, severe exhaustion, extreme headache, eye pain, coughing, tightness in her chest, shortness of breath, and intermittent loss of sense of smell. Though not yet officially diagnosed with the coronavirus, she was scared and afraid to go to sleep. Diana, who was attending The Case for Healing small group at the time, asked her group to pray for Nikki, which they did as they were gathered together through Zoom video conferencing. Right after the group ended, she texted Nikki, and Nikki shared that she was feeling 100% better with no symptoms. They just went away all of a sudden, and she couldn’t explain it!
Additionally, Diana’s left wrist had been in terrible pain for a few months. She had worked as a clinical massage therapist for over 16 years, and it had been getting progressively worse over time until she couldn’t put any pressure on it. It was sore even when she wasn’t using it. At the end of the first small group meeting for The Case for Healing, she received prayer for healing. After only about 30 seconds of prayer, the bones in her wrist made a loud pop, and she could feel a shift. The pain immediately went away, and it has not hurt since!
Diana had also dealt with pretty severe back pain for about 7 years. Her L4 and L5 vertebrae had degeneration, and she injured the tendons and ligaments while installing a cobblestone walkway. This caused a lot of instability in the spine, and the pain was at times unbearable. During one of the small group gatherings, they prayed for her back, and, after several minutes of the group members laying hands on her and praying for her, she felt heat coming out of her back like what she described as a bonfire! She was immediately able to bend and put her palms on the ground and twist side to side with minimal pain. She received further prayer a few more times, and her back got progressively better, allowing her to increase her 90 minute walks in the woods to three to four hours of actual hiking up pretty steep hills!
