Carol Lloyd of Wrenthorpe Lane, Wrenthorpe, near Wakefield was afflicted by fits from 13 years of age. She had about three a day, and they were only controlled by heavy drug taking: up to six pheno-barbitol and three epheneritin tablets daily. The doctors gave no hope of a cure.

At the age of twenty she was operated on for a cistinfected ovary. Complications followed. All burst open. After seven weeks it healed, but the stomach muscles would not function, so that her abdomen was terribly distended and hard. The bowels ceased to act unless assisted by the district nurse with enema and massage.

Carol was under three specialists, all of whom declared that nothing more could be done.

In March 1969 Alec Tee, of Kilsyth, Scotland, came to Wrenthorpe for an evangelistic campaign. Carol trusted in the Lord Jesus for the salvation of her soul. They prayed that God would heal her of the fits and she has not had another since. Encouraged by this, next night she asked for prayer for her fearfully distended stomach. It suddenly went down to normal size. Bowels and kidneys have functioned naturally ever since, so that, of course she has no need of further help from the district nurse.

Carol has gained 3½, stone in weight and is earning her own living in a factory. She is a bonny, healthy young woman and full of thanks to God for making her well and strong. This miracle was given prominence in the local press.

Here is the account of another miracle in simple answer to prayer. Mrs. Margery Steven, of 89 Leigh Road, Wimborne, Dorset, England, a married woman, and at one time commandant in a large army camp, was stricken down by creeping paralysis. Her sight failed, her limbs were doubled up. She was helpless and had to be lifted like a baby from her bed to the wheelchair, in which it was necessary to strap her, to prevent her falling forward. Her mother had to cut up her food and feed her, as she could not control a spoon. For hours she was unconscious and in constant pain for 5½ years. Yet she continued to look to God for healing and was sustained by a dream and a voice, which encouraged her even in her darkest times. Much prayer went up to the Throne of Grace for her. The healing took place dramatically and instantly, when she was alone. Her parents, who had left her helpless, came back a few minutes later, to find her up, walking and perfectly whole. Doctors and nurses verify the miracle, which took place on July 4th 1960. It was given wide publicity, not only in print but over the I.B.R.A. radio.

The miraculous healing of Miss Florence Munday, 10 Cleveland Rd., Gosport, Hants, England, has been told in the Royal Albert Hall, London, and published all over England and beyond. From the age of 5 her body was attacked by a particularly virulent form of eczema. At the age of 20 she fell and damaged the right knee-cap, while tubercular trouble followed. Soon the whole knee-cap was destroyed, while the leg shrivelled and she was in constant pain.

They gave her no hope that she would ever walk again. Blind, and only longing to die, she was upheld by her mother’s persistent, believing prayer. For 14 years she was treated by various specialists, but was neither relieved of pain nor healed in body. Then they heard of miracles of healing at the crusade of George Jeffreys and party at Southampton. In agony of body and trepidation of mind she was taken to his meetings. The power of the Holy Spirit came upon her, shaking the wheel-chair in which she was lying. Her knee joint, which had been rigid for fourteen years, began to bend and flex as she was prayed for. All pain went. She stepped out of the carriage and walked as if on air. The skin disease disappeared. A new knee-cap gradually formed, and the leg, which had shrunk and shortened by 4½ inches, grew and filled out until within a year it was in all particulars as whole as the other. Today Miss Munday is a remarkably fit and completely whole woman, while she delights in pointing others to the Lord Jesus who saved and healed her. A Harley Street specialist testifies that there is now no trace of tuberculosis, while the knee-cap is normal in every particular and perfect in every movement.
