SHEFFIELD, UK (ANS – July 4, 2017) – A Sheffield man has mystified the medical profession following the miraculous healing of a huge tumour on his face.
Ken Gorman suffered excruciating pain after a small lump, discovered at the end of May 2013, grew bigger and bigger. Doctors prescribed tablets for the pain and sent him to Rotherham General Hospital for investigation where an MRI scan found three tumours (or three broken sections of a tumour) wrapped around the central nerve in the side of his face.
Surgery was arranged for early July. Meanwhile he got to hear of a healing meeting at Hull City Hall led by evangelist Nathan Morris, but was told there was no chance of getting tickets.
Wife Annie put out a Twitter post about her husband’s need for prayer, and they decided to go along anyway – with Annie driving as Ken was in too much pain.
And thanks to a response via Twitter, they found seats on the third row.
“There seemed to be hundreds going forward for prayer,” Ken recalled. “But eventually a friend helped get me to the front.
“Within the next ten days, the huge swelling on my face had receded, all pain was gone and I was off all medication. I rang the hospital and explained – and the operation was postponed until I saw the surgeon.
“After another scan, he found that the tumours had disappeared without trace and the operation was cancelled! The surgeon and nurses were speechless when I told them how I was healed. I have been called back for an annual check-up since then, and there is no sign of any tumour. Hallelujah, thank you Jesus!”
Ken adds that, during the lead-up to his healing, he wasn’t just relying on the evangelist’s prayer, but also on his personal faith.
“I remembered a Sunday message on how Jesus told us to ‘speak to the mountain’ in praying for seemingly impossible situations (Mark 11.22-24) and, as this was certainly my ‘mountain’, I started to immerse myself in the promises of God as I stood in front of the mirror each day speaking to my mountain in the name of Jesus.”
There is another Scripture passage that speaks clearly into this situation: “My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.” (Proverbs 4.20-22)
