Power of Prayer

Believing in GOD and praying with all
your heart makes impossible things possible. I would like to share
with you one such experience which has happened in my family.
My sister's son got malignant tumor
in his back on the right side. They noticed it one day when he
complained of some pain below his right arm and then saw some swelling.
Next day they took him to a doctor. The Doctor said that it was
related to bone and they better show him to an orthopedic doctor. They
then went to an orthopedic doctor who examined and prescribed some
medicine, but the boy didn't get any relief. After a month when the
swelling grew they went to Nagpur for medical advice. There, after
biopsy report, they declared that it was cancer.
My brother-in-law phoned me that day.
I told him to bring him here for Blessings of Swami and told him that
we shall pray.[ Since then we started to apply Vibhuti while chanting
the vibhuti mantra four times every day.] They came to Puttaparthi,
next day along with me boy sat for darshan. Swami came and gave him
vibhuti and said "Do as the doctor said. My Blessings are there".
They went to Nagpur Mayo Hospital and
admitted him for surgery. After all the investigations and X-ray
report all the concerned doctors held a meeting and they referred him
to Tata Memorial Hospital in Bombay . At the Tata Memorial Hospital.
after the examinations they started chemotherapy to reduce the size
of the tumor. As per the tests and CT-Scan report the doctor said
that there is only 5% hope of life because the cancer had spread to
the ribs lungs and is spreading over the kidney. They also declared
it as PNET tumor. After five chemo-therapy sessions the tumor size
had reduced so much that the doctor advised for surgery. As the ninth
rib was affected it had to be replaced. Before surgery they asked us
to bring an artificial rib which is needed for the surgery, which we
brought. Surgery was done successfully and doctor said that the rib
was alright and did not need replacement. And the lungs and kidney
were also alright. After the operation the doctor advised for
radiation therapy. But after examination and seeing the reports they
said radiation was not required they would just complete the
chemo-therapy course only.
Now he is absolutely normal. It has
happened because of Swami's Grace Not only our family members,
everybody who came to know about him, prayed for him. The local Sathya
Sai Samithi all the members prayed to Bhagawan to bless him and save
his life. Indeed Bhagawan listens to our heart-felt and fervent
prayers. It was only the prayer which saved him. We are very very
grateful to our most Beloved Bhagawan Sai Nath.
