In early 2015, Dora was hit by a car while walking outside her workplace in Portland, OR. She was rushed to the emergency room, where she was diagnosed with a concussion. She was released from the hospital, but later started suffering from severe headaches.
“I thought my head was going to explode,” Dora said. “I couldn’t function because the headache was so, so intense. I was out of work for 9 months and my doctor, I will call him and tell him I can’t sleep, I can’t function, I can’t stand these headaches. He’d send me prescriptions.”
Dora’s medication didn’t alleviate the pain. Unable to get relief, Dora prayed constantly.
“And I cry out to the Lord many days, many times. Many nights. And it seems like the Lord was so far away that He didn’t answer, so I started calling 700 Club,” Dora said.
Dora called the 700 Club Prayer Partners for months, and then on October 13th, 2015 she had a breakthrough.
“When I called in, I was telling this person that I’d been calling so many times but I still have this horrendous headache,” Dora said. “And she says, ‘Well today we’re going to tell that headache, that spirit of headache to go away from you.’ And she was praying with such an authority. I thanked the Lord, went to bed.”
“That next day I got up to pray and there was no headache. As the day was going by, I was looking for the headache. I’m like, ‘Wow, it’s amazing. I have to call them, I have to tell them, I have to tell somebody.’”
Dora hasn’t experienced a single headache since that day.
I can have a life, I can go back to my job after 9 months. It means that God loves me that much that He really cares for me,” Dora said. “I was already so in love with the Lord, but this took me a step higher. It gave me more boldness to talk to people and tell people about the awesomeness of our God. Trust in the Lord. When all else fails, God will never fails. He’s always listening.”
