There was a fire in an apartment in London, and it nearly claimed the life of a lady I knew. We were not close, but when I heard she was hanging by a thread in intensive care at the hospital, I felt I should do anything to help. I am a firm believer in the power of healing through prayer. I am not the healer; God is the healer. I spoke with her sister and asked her if she would like me to attend to her sister in ICU, and she almost begged me to go.

I am familiar with hospitals and often get invited to attend to patients as a healer. In England, the National Health Service (NHS) allows healers to openly attend to patients in care at the request of the patients or next of kin (well done NHS). On the first day, I saw the patient looking terrible. She was in a coma, and I barely recognised her. I knelt by her bed, held her hand, and prayed. I repeated this process daily for weeks but could not see a difference. The doctors shared concern with her sister and hinted at the possibility that the patient might not make it. I felt disheartened as I wanted her to recover. A dear friend reminded me that my hospital work was valuable and indirectly beneficial to the patient’s sister, who desperately needed support.

I felt my service was ending, and on the last day, as I prayed next to the patient, I felt myself drift slightly. I caught a glimpse of something from the corner of my eye, and when I turned, I saw a tall ‘angel’ towering over the patient. It could not have been more than a few seconds, and then it disappeared. I was astonished and became emotional. Deep down, it restored my faith that healing finds its way, seen or unseen.

A few weeks later, I turned the corner at a train station and bumped into the sisters, and I could not believe my eyes. The patient recovered and looked fragile, but her spirit shone through. She said her sister told her I attended to her at the hospital, and she hugged me to thank me. Despite all my efforts, I could not help but tear up; I had just witnessed a miracle and was allowed a small part of the process.
