Parents whose daughter suffered from a severe illness clung to faith through steadfast prayer. And God was faithful to answer their prayers.
Shanequa Deas suffered from a health crisis due to diabetes in November 2020. At first, people around her began to notice something strange about her behavior. That’s when her mom, Mary, took her to a hospital.
Doctors diagnosed Shanequa’s with diabetic ketoacidosis, which is considered a life-threatening disease. Mental confusion, one of the symptoms, caused her sudden strange behavior. Also, she devloped COVID-19 and it made her situation even more complicated.
Steadfast Prayers Of Parents
Meanwhile, Shanequa parents trusted God and clung to the power of prayer. Despite hearing bad news that their daughter wasn’t getting any better, they continued praying and believing. They believed for their daughter’s miraculous healing despite the circumstance.
Here mother also sent a prayer for their daughter’s healing to The 700 Club. That’s when they received a powerful word from God which they stood upon.
“We continued to just be steadfast, unshakeable, immovable, and holding on to His unchanging hands,” Shanequa’s father said.
Four weeks later, Shanequa was still unconscious and on a ventilator. But on the night of December 24, she finally woke up. Soon, doctors took her off the ventilator and she began breathing on her own. She was sent to rehab, and three weeks later, Shanequa had recovered.
Today, her parents credit God for their daughter’s survival from that life-threatening illness.
“I believe that God is, He is the Healer, He’s Yahweh,” the father remarked. “Just like He said He is. And I believe that no matter how big or how small your illness is, God cares about us.”
“I know that prayer works and I know that God won’t leave you,” Shanequa further attested.
Praise God for the miracle!
