- My Prayer
“O God, the almighty divine healer, bless me with the art of healing. Strengthen me with your Holy Spirit. Let the knowledge acquired be bright and illuminant, and second to none. Let there be physical, mental and spiritual health for every one I touch”
“By his stripes we are healed” Isaiah 53:4-5
I have been pursuing the priestly healing ministry of G-d for over 38 years. What I usually say is that G-d decided to use me as an instrument of His healing ministry: A disciple of the “wounded Healer”
G-d uses the healers as instruments of healing because God is Spirit and He chooses certain people to accomplish His purpose. Why He chose me, I don’t know . He’s been using people throughout history, all through history. Every decade he has used other people in ministries. All the way from His apostles down to every generation, there have been instruments of healing. But Jesus is the only healer, the wounded healer.
Let me give a brief history of my career:
After finishing the MBBS (Basic Medical qualification) from the Trivandrum, Medical College, Kerala, India, in 1973, I joined the ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research) in the directorate of Health services and worked as a Research Medical officer till 1977.
