Example [#129]
« on: August 01, 2008, 02:43:26 PM »
Hi,

I have bumped into your site and would just like to say that I and two others
prayed with a guy 2 months ago in Mansfield. He had cut his left-hand fingers
off with a circular saw and they'd been reattached 7 years ago. He too was
convinced that God could/would do nothing to heal him. As we prayed, the colour
came back into his hand- digits 3-5 freed up alot or were completely healed. The
digit 2 improved only slightly.

This is of course impossible, but the impossible has never stopped God!

I also prayed with a guy whose shoulder was dislocated and who had several
broken tendons. The shoulder moved back to the correct place and the pain
stopped. It's not fully healed in that it can still dislocate, but (according to
the guy) it is much better than it was.

I would love to see God do more miracles, but the issue can often be one of
faith. Jesus himself is recorded as being unable to do many miracles when he
visited his home town because of their lack of faith. I struggle to have faith
that God will heal an amputation, whereas I am more comfortable with other healings.

I hope this is helpful.

Yours,

[Name]

Okay, doctors can reattach fingers.  That is nothing new.

We want God to do the truly impossible, like regrowing the limb of an amputee.

BTW: it would help if you could provide medical records, although with HIPPA, it might be difficult.
If we come together and do not fight over religion, class and borders then we hold the key to a peaceful world. There are two possible futures in store; either a March of power and greed or a March of a unified human race.

Yeah, I have to agree with what SP said. Doctors can reattach fingers. Can you show us an example of someone regrowing an arm? Leg?

Too bad god couldn't go ahead and make these people "every whit whole".

I prayed for the sun to rise today and it did! Praise Vishnu!

Miracles need to be unambiguous. They need to be unexplainable by normal means.
