“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”- Jeremiah 29:11.
This verse reminds us that God has the best in store for us, and His plans are not what we think and imagine for ourselves. Adam York was ,leading a pretty normal life before being hit with flu symptoms, but tragically days later, he was on life support, with Doctors saying he was going to die.
It was unusual for Adam to get sick and also for his loved ones as he slipped into a coma for two months, and now the flu had turned to viral pneumonia with his lungs filling with fluid, even none of the doctor’s treatments were working and he was on 100% oxygen.
His wife, Felicia York, said“It got really bad. They were telling me ‘there’s nothing else we can do.’ We were watching his oxygen levels drop, drop, drop.”
When all hope was lost and Adam’s passing was imminent, Felicia decided to turn to divine help and started to pray to God for Adam’s healing.
She stayed by his bed and prayed for two hours. Previously the doctors had unsuccessfully tried to remove the fluid off of Adam’s lungs, but miraculously this time when they tried again, they were successful. He started to show signs of recovery with full brain function which shocked hospital staff.
“One of my doctors came in and he had told me he didn’t believe in miracles but he came in the room and said ‘I don’t know what that means to you, but you’re a miracle,’” Adam said. “A lot of crazy things that shouldn’t have happened – did.”
Adam’s family did not stop there, but kept on praying for Adam, and he has even recovered from his paralysis and is now able to walk with light assistance. Adam and Felicia have got a fresh revelation of their calling in life and are doing a course in the nursing field to be a blessing to others.
Adam gives all the glory to God as he says, “I’d say God first, prayer second, doctors third,” On his recovery he says, “The doctors and the nurses – none of them have an explanation for why I’m alive.”
We believe that the prayers of Felicia and the family have worked for Adam and God has healed him completely, Praise the Lord!
