Constant Pain Swallowed Up by Miracle Prayer

By Christine McWhorter
The 700 Club -“I had pain for months and months. I had phlegm in my throat, and couldn’t swallow. It was very hard to breathe. There was always pain and I couldn’t speak,” said John.

John Eagan didn’t know why his throat was constantly hurting. All he knew was that at times, it was unbearable. “You’re trying to talk to people. And if you try to get into a conversation and your voice just stops; it’s embarrassing and it’s ridiculous,” said John.

“While I was sleeping I would wake up because you start to feel pain in your throat. It would dry up so much that even when you take a sip of water that would hurt. I had to get up and start gargling again and try to get it loosened it up so I could at least get a couple of hours of sleep. Then in another hour it would happen. I would have to get up again,” said John.

John’s doctor couldn’t find anything wrong. He prescribed antibiotics, but they didn’t help. “I felt like I was getting a little bit older. I don’t heal as fast probably, and I’m just going to have to deal with this problem,” said John.

One day he was watching The 700 Club, and Terry Meeuwsen began to pray for viewers. “They ask you to put your hand on your affliction before they start. Mine was my throat so I put my hand on my throat,” said John. “I’m thinking to myself, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if they mentioned my affliction today?’”

Then, Terry prayed, “It’s quite chronic, actually. It’s like a raspiness in the back of your throat. It is so annoying. God is healing that for you right now. It’s just going to go away.”

“All of a sudden my hand starts getting warmer and warmer; like with this radiant heat. It starts to move from my hand into my throat. She’s explaining it. She’s explaining my problem to a tee. I knew it was some kind of supernatural thing happening here. Everything dropped. All the phlegm and mucus that was in the back of my throat just dropped down. All the pain was gone. This was instantaneous. It wasn’t like that night or the next day or something like that. It just happened instantly like that,” said John.

For the first time in months, he could enjoy things he once took for granted, like meals with family. “I could swallow. I could breathe again. I could talk, for the first time, I could talk.” said John.

John says he knows it was God who healed him. “He knows your problems before you even get them. He knows your sicknesses before you even get them. And He knows the most special perfect time to answer and heal you,” said John.
