I have a new life

HEALED: After receiving prayer from Svein-Magne, Monica Maureira was able to put away the painkillers.
After receiving prayer from Svein-Magne, Monica Maureira was able to put away the painkillers, cancel the scheduled hip operation and the back pain she had is gone. She can now move around in different directions without pain

Monica Maureira is originally from the country of Chile, but she has lived in Norway for the last 21 years. She now resides in the city of Kristiansand.

After years of physically strenuous work in the cleaning trade, something happened in January 2003 that made her unable to work anymore. An accident happened at work where a heavy polishing machine fell directly towards her, puncturing her back.

-I lost my breath and sat still for half an hour before I thought it had passed. In the next few days I understood that that was not the case, she tells.

My back got worse for every day that went by, and the following week I could no longer lift anything. Monica had always been hardworking, but now she had to quit her job.

-I had to use crutches to be able to walk, and I very often I was bed ridden with great pains. I was always taking the strongest pain killers. I had many sleepless nights because of the pain. Even though I went to many different doctors, including many specialists, I was always told that there was nothing that could be done about it. I just had to settle with the fact that this was how my life was going to be.

Eventually her left hip was worn out as well. After two years had gone by, the x-ray pictures showed so much deterioration that the doctors were considering having a prosthetic put in.

-Free from pain in the car

Four years came and went without any improvement. Her partner saw a hope. He was a subscriber to Svein-Magnes magazine, and over the years he had suggested many times that she be helped by receiving prayer from Svein-Magne Pedersen.

-To begin with I was not particularly interested in trying it, says Monica.

When her partner read in the magazine that Pedersen was going to preach in a church close to where they lived, he encouraged her to come with him to the meeting since it was so close by. Finally she gave in. In January 2007 they were sitting at Svein-Magnes meeting waiting to receive prayer.

-During the meeting the pain in my back was excruciating, since I had not taken any painkillers that day. When Svein-Magne prayed for me, I was mostly concentrating on understanding his dialect, and I did not feel any difference in my condition. I had already sat down in my car after the meeting was over when I first started to notice that something had happened. I did not have any pain anywhere. It was fantastic, she tells.

-No operation

Almost two years after the meeting, Monica comes to one of Svein-Magnes meetings in a town nearby.

-I have been given a new life, she says. With her back straightened out, no crutches or other help aids, she tells with a big smile on her face that she had not had pain in her back one single day after the meeting where she received prayer.

-Of course itís natural for your back to get stiff during stress, but I have not had pains like I did before at all, she says.

Monica was also healed from wear and tear in her left hip, and the scheduled hip operation was cancelled.

-My hip was not hurting after receiving prayer. I cancelled the operation, even though the doctors wondered why. They took new x-ray pictures at the hospital and they also found no reason to operate, says Monica who thanks God for what has taken place.
