Freed from Chronic Dysmenorrhea
Since I was 12, I suffered from dysmenorrhea (painful periods). I was often bedridden with unbearable abdominal pain and spells of vomiting especially on the first day of each period. This interfered with my daily activities and led me to miss school and work frequently.
One Christmas eve, the pain was so excruciating I had to go to the emergency room to receive a shot to relax my muscles. I sought prayer, used prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, and tried various natural remedies to treat the condition. However, month after month and year after year, the symptoms prevailed.
Early last year, I went to the doctor and was prescribed a hormonal treatment. However, I also felt led to try something different. I decided to apply some of the things I had learned through listening to grace teachings by Joseph Prince.
I began declaring things like “Lord, it’s not because of anything that I have done to deserve healing, but because of what You have accomplished for me that I can experience healing” and “You are my righteousness.”
I started speaking to my body, and I thanked the Lord for total, unearned healing. I also started partaking of the holy Communion. About 6 months later, I didn’t need the hormonal treatment. I also used very little medicine during my periods and sometimes none at all, which was miraculous! Before that, I was taking nearly 1,800 mg of ibuprofen daily for pain.
Praise the Lord for the gospel of grace. He freely gives healing, and I am a recipient of it. There is no better medicine than right believing in Jesus.
