I WOULD HAVE SEIZURES IN

GROCERY STORES, IN

RESTAURANTS, ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

THEY FINALLY PUT ME ON

SOMETHING THAT WOULD SLOW

THEM DOWN A LITTLE, BUT I

STILL HAD THEM THREE TO FIVE

TIMES A DAY.

Reporter: AFTER

SUFFERING A SEIZURE AT WORK,

MARIE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

SECONDARY PROGRESSIVE

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, A

DISEASE DOCTORS TOLD HER MAY

EVENTUALLY TAKE HER LIFE.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY WITNESSED

THE TOLL IT TOOK ON MARIE.

SHE WAS IN BED 24/7.

AND IF SHE WANTED TO GO

ANYWHERE, SHE HAD TO GET IN

A SCOOTER.

MARIE USED TO BE PRETTY

MUCH BEDRIDDEN.

SHE HAD CARETAKERS AROUND

THE CLOCK.

I WAS JUST EXISTING EVERY

DAY, GOING THROUGH LIFE

WITHOUT A PURPOSE OR

DESTINY.

THE NEXT STEP WAS TO PUT ME

IN A NURSING HOME.

Reporter: HER FRIEND,

JULIE, A CHRISTIAN, GAVE HER

THE BIBLE ON TAPE, AND

ENCOURAGED HER TO LISTEN.

I WOULD LISTEN TO IT OVER

AND OVER AND OVER, MATTHEW,

MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN, OVER

AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

IT KIND OF GAVE ME HOPE,

SOMETHING I NEVER HAD

BEFORE.

Reporter: MARIE STARTED

GOING TO A BIBLE STUDY WITH

HER FRIEND.

IT WAS VERY COMMON FOR

MARIE TO HAVE A SEIZURE, YOU

KNOW, DURING THE BIBLE

STUDY.

SHE SOMETIMES WOULD PASS

OUT.

HER BODY WOULD SHAKE AND

QUIVER.

AND SHE WOULD BE EXHAUSTED

AFTERWARDS.

AND THEY WOULD JUST LOVE

ME.

THEY WOULD JUST MEET ME

WHERE I WAS AT.

THEY WOULD LOVE ME AND THEY

WOULD JUST TELL ME ABOUT THE

LORD.

Reporter: HER FRIENDS

PRAYED FOR MARIE TO BE

HEALED, DESPITE HER

WORSENING CONDITION, AND

DOCTORS' GRIM PROGNOSIS.

THEY SAID, YOU KNOW GOD

CAN HEAL YOU.

THAT'S WHAT THE WOMEN WOULD

TELL ME.

AND I GOT OFFENDED.

I THOUGHT, HOW DARE YOU PUT

SO MUCH HOPE IN MY LIFE.

WE PRAYED FOR MARIE

BECAUSE WE WANTED HER

COMPLETE AND WHOLE.

AND WE BELIEVED GOD HAD MORE

FOR HER.

Reporter: BUT THE MORE

SHE LISTENED TO THE GOSPELS

AND ATTENDED BIBLE STUDY,

THE MORE SHE BECAME OPEN TO

SUPERNATURAL HEALING.

MARIE EVENTUALLY AGREED TO

GO TO A WOMEN'S AGLOW

HEALING SERVICE.

BEFORE THE SERVICE, MARIE

GOT ALONE AND PRAYED.

I PRAYED A SIMPLE

PRAYER.

LORD, I'M READY TO RECEIVE

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE FOR ME.

AND THAT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL I

SAID.

Reporter: BUT AS THE

SERVICE BEGAN, MARIE HAD THE

WORST SEIZURE OF HER LIFE.

I ENDED UP ON THE FLOOR.

AND MY FRIEND SAID, GOD'S

GOT THIS.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

HE'S GOT THIS.

AND THE LADIES CAME OVER AND

PRAYED FOR ME, AND JESUS

TOOK THE SEIZURE AWAY.

Reporter: MARIE ASKED

TO RECEIVE JESUS INTO HER

LIFE, AND ALSO PRAYED TO BE

COMPLETELY HEALED OF M.S.

IMMEDIATELY SHE SAYS SHE

FELT SOMETHING LEAVE HER

BODY.

AND SHE LOOKED AT ME

STRAIGHT IN THE EYE, AND SHE

SAID, YOU SPIRIT OF M.S.,

YOU COME OUT OF HER RIGHT

NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IT CAME OUT RIGHT OUT OF THE

SIDE OF MY HEAD.

I GOT UP AND WALKED VERY

QUICKLY, AND THEN I WENT

INTO THE HALLWAY, AND I RAN

AS FAST AS I COULD, BACK AND

FORTH, BACK AND FORTH, AND

AS I WAS RUNNING, THE HOLY

SPIRIT WAS TELLING ME YOU'RE

HEALED, YOU'RE HEALED.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

ONE MINUTE I'M NOT WALKING

OR TALKING, AND THE NEXT

MINUTE I'M LIKE I AM NOW, NO

SEIZURES.

I REMEMBER WHEN MY MOTHER

CAME HOME AND SAID SHE WAS

HEALED, AND MY BROTHERS AND

I WERE, LIKE, WHAT?

AND SHE KEPT WALKING AROUND

AND WE KEPT TELLING HER NOT

TO DO THAT, BUT SHE WAS

HEALED.

I KNEW MARIE BEFORE, AND

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE, BUT GOD

CAN DO THAT.

Reporter: MARIE SAYS

HER ENTIRE LIFE HAS CHANGED

SINCE HER HEALING.

SHE IS ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN

HEALING MINISTRIES, AND

TAKES MISSION TRIPS TO

CANADA.

JESUS IS LIVING IN ME.

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS DOING

THE WORK.

IT IS A LOT BETTER,

DEFINITELY.

IT IS AWESOME TO SEE WHO

SHE IS NOW.

SHE'S OUT MINISTERING TO

PEOPLE, AND GOD'S USING

HER.

I HAVEN'T HAD A SEIZURE

IN EIGHT YEARS.

NO MATTER WHAT DISEASE OR

DISORDER, JESUS IS REAL.

HE IS OUR HEALER.

HE SAYS IT IN HIS WORD.

I BELIEVED HIM AND I

RECEIVED IT.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

AND SAYS "YOU ARE," NOT "WE

MIGHT BE."

"WE ARE" AND I HAPPEN TO

BELIEVE THAT.
