No insurance, No Problem For God

After injuring his hand Stephen Marvin was left with what doctor's call, "trigger finger". Without medical insurance to cover a visit to the Dr. Stephen suffered for two years until he heard a prayer on The 700 Club. Read Transcript


AS A FAMILY, WE WERE

ENJOYING THE JACUZZI.

WE HAD A GERMAN SHEPHERD

DOG, AND SHE WAS NIPPPING AT

THE BUBBLES, AND WE WERE

AFRAID SHE WOULD BITE ONE OF

THE BOYS.

I GRABBED HER BY THE SCRUFF

OF THE NECK, BUT IN DOING

THAT, SOMETHING HAPPENED IN

MY HAND, AND IT KIND OF

SNAPPED AND I COULDN'T

RELEASE MY FINGERS.

Reporter: IN AN

INSTANT, STEVEN MARTIN LOST

THE USE OF HIS LEFT HAND.

I HAD TROUBLE EVEN

HOLDING A GLASS.

BECAUSE YOU DO EVERYTHING

WITH YOUR THUMB AND YOUR

FINGER, I COULDN'T GRASP

ANYTHING.

Reporter: WHEN HIS HAND

DIDN'T GET ANY BETTER,

STEVEN WENT TO THE DOCTOR.

THE DOCTOR TOLD ME AT

THAT POINT, THE ONLY WAY TO

REPAIR WHAT I HAD, WHICH HE

REFERRED TO AS TRIGGER

FINGER, WAS THROUGH

SURGERY.

THAT WASN'T AN OPTION.

HAND SURGERY WAS IN THE TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, AND

IT WAS SOMETHING WE COULDN'T

AFFORD.

Reporter: STEVEN DIDN'T

HAVE ANY MEDICAL INSURANCE,

SO HE BEGAN TAKING

OVER-THE-COUNTER PAIN

MEDICATION TO TAKE THE PAIN

AWAY.

THE MEDICATION WOULD JUST

TAKE THE EDGE OFF.

YOU LEARN TO WORK AROUND IT

AND LIVE WITH THE PAIN.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY OTHER

CHOICE.

Reporter: STEVEN PRAYED

EVERY NIGHT FOR GOD TO HEAL

HIS HAND.

HE ALSO FOUND ENCOURAGEMENT

BY WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

ONE DAY, OUT OF THE BLUE,

TERRY GOES, I SEE A MAN WITH

HIS HAND.

AND SHE SEEMED CONFUSED, AND

SHE SAYS, IN THE SHAPE OF A

CLAW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR

HAND, AND IT GETS LOCKED

INTO A CLAW CLAW-LIKE

POSITION.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

I'M LIKE, IT HAS GOT TO

BE ME.

IT WAS INSTANTANEOUS.

AND I COULD MOVE MY HAND

WITH NO PROBLEM.

I BELIEVE IN PRAYER, BUT

WHEN IT HELPS TO YOU, IT IS

AMAZING.

Reporter: STEVEN AND

KAREN WERE AMAZED THAT

STEVEN COULD OPEN HIS HAND

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO

YEARS.

I IMMEDIATELY CALLED THE

PHONE AND TOLD PEOPLE,

STEVEN WAS USING HIS HAND.

AND I WAS CRYING.

IT WAS VERY EXCITING.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

FIRST THINGS STEVEN WAS ABLE

TO DO THAT HAD BEEN

IMPOSSIBLE BEFORE, WAS SHOOT

HIS COMPOUND BOW.

IT ALLOWED ME TO PICK UP

ACTIVITIES I WASN'T ABLE TO

DO, AND TO WORK ON THE CAR

WITH MY KIDS.

IT ALLOWED ME TO HAVE THAT

BONDING THAT A FOOTE FATHER

NEEDS TO HAVE WITH YOUNG

TEENAGERS.

I'M PROOF THAT GOD IS ACTIVE

TODAY AND TOMORROW.

YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THE

SCRIPTURES.

HE SAYS HE WANTS TO HEAL

YOU.

GOD HEALS.
