My daughter has been healed

Testimony of Anna Wong

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come up to a knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2/1-4)


Since I was revived in 1990, I realized how important it was to bring up my daughter according to the word of God. When my daughter was two or three years old, I had a burden to teach her to intercede for the whole world. But how could I do that? She was too young to know so many names of the country. Nor could she memorize them. The Holy Spirit taught me to help her to memorize the name of each continent. Therefore, every night before she went to bed, I taught her to pray like this, “Let people in America, Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia believe in Jesus Christ. And let everyone on the earth repent and be saved. Let them be reborn. Amen!” I prayed with her like this every night. Pretty soon she could memorize it all by herself. If she did not say this prayer, she could not fall asleep. How amazing it was!


When my daughter was three or four years old, she had an illness in her hands. I brought her to the doctor. The doctor said she had the illness of “rich man’s hand”. All of her fingers would be infected. If she touched water, then the infection of her fingers would be worse. She must keep her hands dry all the time. There was no medicine to cure it. I thought it was so hard for her to keep her hands dry all the time. It was also impossible for a girl not to do any housework. How suffering it was for her to have this kind of illness? No one would dare to make friends with her when they saw her hands. I felt very sorry for her. Sometimes she was better, and sometimes she got worse. My husband and I could only leave it with God completely by faith.


After some time I myself could memorize the names of every country in the world, and the 48 cities of the ministry of Home of Grace for Christ’s workers. As my daughter grew older, two of us would join together to intercede for the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace. Very soon she could pray for some part of it by memory. But after I returned to Taiwan, my heart became cold to the things of God. I loved the world. I stopped interceding for the whole world. In fact, I did not pray at all during that time. After I was restored again, I started to pray for the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace. Usually I would pray loudly for the whole world by memory, and she would join me and shout, “Amen!” But I was so involved with my teaching job that I did not have time to intercede for the world with her. One day, her fingers started to have infection. It was getting worse and worse. Even both of her hands were infected. I was so worry and did not know what to do. I quickly brought her to the Lord. We prayed the Lord would shine upon us and search our hearts. Had she touched any things that were unclean in the eyes of God? Or had she done anything that she should not have done? We earnestly prayed that the blood of the Lord would cleanse all of her transgressions. Then she went to bed. But a thought came to my mind, “Was it because she had not prayed for the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace?” The Holy Spirit put a clear burden in me at once. I was to write down the name of every country on the world for her to pray. And I knew I had to write them neatly in a large print. I was to post it on the wall of her room after I finished it. It was about 12 o’clock midnight. I was very tired. But I was pushed by the Holy Spirit to do it immediately. When I finished it, it was 2 o’clock in the morning. Then I post it on the wall of her room according to the conviction in my heart. At that time I did not understand why the Lord wanted me to do it. But I prayed to God for a sign. I prayed, “O Lord, if you truly want her to pray faithfully for the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace, please help her to do it. Lord, please heal her completely as a sign.”


Next morning as soon as she got up, I admitted my sins to my daughter. It was my fault that I did not help her to continue to pray for the whole world. I also told her what God had put in my heart about the cause and the cure of her illness. God wanted her to pray for the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace. To her it was a very difficult thing. She was a very impatient person, and she only knew very few words at that time. But she promised to do it because she wanted to be healed as soon as possible. Her illness had given her a lot of pain and inconvenience.


It was very hard for the first few days. Every night we spent a very long time to go through the name of every country. It was about two weeks later, one day she came back from school and told me happily, “Mommy, look, this finger has scab!” I could hardly believe what I saw by my eyes. I thought if a wound got scab, it meant it was getting healed. At first, there were only one or two fingers healed. Pretty soon there was no more infection on any of her fingers. Then all the scab was gone, her hands were healed completely.


I could not describe how shock I was about her healing. For the first time I realized how zealous our God was about every soul on the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace. God even earnestly desired a little girl to pray for the whole world and the ministry destined by Him. When we aimed our prayers at God’s desire and prayed for it faithfully, even the dead would come back to life. (The doctor had said that there was no cure of my daughter’s fingers.)


God will answer our prayers for the whole world and the ministry of Home of Grace in His time. Does not it take only a little time, “till the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest.” (Isaiah 32/15) Let all the glory and thanks be given to our only true God. Amen! I am convinced, “Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to the house of Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” (Joshua 21/45)
