Testimonies of Healing - Dr. Stanley Horton

The two most outstanding healings in my family: My grandfather, Samuel Horton was operated on for prostate cancer. The surgeon cut through the tube so that the urine was draining out through the wound. He placed pads to absorb the urine and sent my grandfather home to die. My uncle, Joseph Clark, was then the pastor of the Assembly of God in North Hollywood, called us all together. When he prayed we felt the presence of God in a powerful way. The next morning his daughter, my Aunt Birdie, went up to change the bandages. The wound was all healed up, perfectly clean and healed up completely in a few days. My grandfather went back to work and lived to be 87. That healing had to involve creative power.

The other outstanding healing came when my father developed a goose-egg sized lump on his throat. He went down to the 120 room in Angeles Temple where his friend Brother Arthur was ministering. When Brother Arthur prayed the lump melted away immediately and never came back.

Another time I was preaching in an Assembly in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. After the service, a woman came up and asked me to pray for the cancer in her. Her doctor had told her this disease would take her life in a short time. Four years later I was asked to preach in the same church. While sitting on the platform the pastor pointed the same woman out. After I had prayed she was totally healed and was still praising the Lord.

God is still the Great Physician. Yahweh-Raphah, Rophe is a participle indicating it is His nature to heal.
