Overcoming Asthma: The Joy of My First Deep Breath

Chara has battled asthma her whole life. For the last couple years, she frequently had asthma attacks 3-4 times a day (and at times, even in the night). This made her very fearful to do anything physical.

“It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” she said.

On Thursday night, she felt she should come forward for healing prayer at the DNA America’s Gathering. A DTS student came up to Chara and said she felt like she was to pray for some who had a lung problem. It was a perfect match!

After the prayer time, Chara went on with life as normal. And for some reason, things that used to make her afraid didn’t anymore. She spent the whole day walking around Branson, Missouri on Saturday. Then on Sunday morning, she hiked up a long switchback hill to go to a chapel communion time for the DNA. When she arrived at the top, she realized she’d left her Bible behind and hiked all the way back down and up the hill again.

It was only then that it clicked. She’d been 3 days asthma free! She could actually take a deep breath for the first time! God had healed her!

“I never knew why people liked exercise before,” she said. “But now I get it. It’s actually fun if you can breathe!”

Thank you Jesus!
