Healing Leads to Hunger to Read God’s Word


Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.

— Psalm 103:2-3

While a Muslim girl was taking medication for cancer, a GCM disciple maker began praying for her, as this was the only thing she could think of to do. Even though many people tried to help the girl, her condition worsened.

After her family and friends had tried everything medically, they brought the girl back to our disciple maker so she could be prayed for. During the process of many prayer sessions, our disciple maker did not get disappointed or lose hope. In faith, she kept asking God to heal this girl.


Then one day, our disciple maker went to check on the girl and discovered that she had been healed. The girl shared that every time she was prayed for by the disciple maker, she felt good and could sense that something positive was happening to her body.

When the girl was questioned if she was truly healed and if she no longer had any problems with cancer, she realized that it was only because of the prayer that she was healed by God.

Her mother asked the disciple maker what she read to her daughter—a chapter out of the Koran or something else—and what did the disciple maker say that brought about this healing? Simply but powerfully, the disciple maker stated that it was God and God alone who had healed her daughter.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

— Hebrews 4:12

The disciple maker admitted that she had not read any chapters out of the Koran, but that there were some stories that had changed and blessed her life, which she could share with them.

Quickly, all the women in the family agreed to meet with the disciple maker to hear the stories. They continue to gather together, reading the scriptures and intently listening.

O Lord my God, I cried out to You, and You healed me.

— Psalm 30:2


  • For the Lord to continue to open the hearts and pull back the veil over the women in this family to His love and truth.

  • For our disciple makers to continue to follow the Holy Spirit’s leading when talking with others.

  • For people in the Middle East to be open to prayer in the name of Jesus, the Healer of our souls.
