Back and Hip Pain Healed as Shorter Leg "Grew Out"!

I would like to share a healing testimony with you.

When I was a child the doctors discovered that my right leg was about one inch shorter than the left one. This caused pain in my right leg, back and hips. The doctors made special insoles for me to put in both shoes in order to try and regulate the different lengths of my legs. This treatment caused me even more pain. Also, as a child I grew fast, and this made the pain even worse. I felt the constant pressure of my body weight on my right leg and couldn't walk very long distances. After wearing the insoles for a few months, I made the decision not to use them anymore and refused to see any doctor.

I became a Christian when I was nineteen years old, and read in the Bible that you can lay hands on the sick and they shall recover (MARK 16:18).

People in our Assembly laid hands on me and prayed for me and my right leg grew out, however it was still about half-an-inch (1 cm) shorter than my other leg. Some time later, I decided to pray and lay hands on my shorter leg by myself… In “Jesus Name”, I commanded my right leg to grow and the hips, knees and ankles to be levelled out with the left leg. After the prayer I could feel movement in my right leg, which felt like someone stretching it!

I checked the length of both legs and immediately realised that the right leg was exactly like the left leg. There were no more differences in the length of my legs, and my hips and joints and everything were completely level. When I got up, I found myself standing evenly and could feel that my bodyweight was evenly distributed on both legs. The pain in my knees, hips and back completely disappeared after the healing!

After the instant healing, I had sore muscles in my right leg. It felt like the muscles did not grow with the bones and it took a couple of days for them to stretch.

I’m very thankful to God for healing me. Now I’m able to walk long distances without limping or pain!

Love in Christ,


I praise God for your healing and I key in to it for my own healing of left unilateral tonsillomegaly. Please help me pray for a divine shrinking to avert surgery. I already had a myomectomy few months back. I really need to join faith with someone as mine may not carry. Thank you and God bless.

Believing God for my total healing in my eyes and body, also. As he has done it for you, I am believing he is doing it for me right now, In The Name of Jesus!!!!


After reading story of your miraculous healing, felt like sharing what I have been suffering from. I am having a rare bone disease in my right leg called Fibrous Dysplasia which has made it extremely prone to fractures. It has shortened it from left leg by around 2 inches due to which I limp while walking. Also, doctors say the disease is incurable and have advised me to use a walking cane which I do. I am 26 now and have suffered from 3 femoral fractures since childhood. I had a severe fracture a year ago for which I was operated and supporting rods were inserted into my upper leg. Although I have completed my studies and am working right now, but all this has had a huge impact on my life. Limping and using a cane have completely brought down my confidence levels. I don't feel like socializing or going out. I have no friends. I cannot wear normal shoes. The thought of what future holds for me and will I be ever able to find a life partner brings me to tears anytime of the day.
Please do pray for me that I be healed. Please pray that the Lord gives me strength and confidence to live and face the challenges ahead.
Thank you.

Hi Apeksha,

Thank you for writing to me. It is very heart-breaking to read what you are going through.

Firstly be assured, I pray for your complete healing.

God wants his people to be healthy but Satan puts sickness and disease on people.

God is your healer and you need to seek Him and God will bring it to pass. God is a God of miracles and when you deeply seek Him you will find Him. Jeremiah 29:13 says: And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

God wants to heal us, but he does not want to heal our body and we continue to live selfish and sinful lives, and after we die, we go to hell. God has given us His son to die for us, so we don’t have to die in our sins; and our souls are saved on the big and terrible day, judgement day, when we will be judged according to what we have done.

The bible says in Acts: 2:37, 38: Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

God promises in the bible that he will heal you, don’t give up and let God turn your life around, in all areas.

I will include some healing scriptures from my “healing folder”. This is a folder with healing scriptures I have put together over time. I often read healing scripture after healing scripture in this folder.

Psalm 103: 2, 3: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases.

Isaiah: 53: 4,5: Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

You’re sincerely,


I am 18 years old this year and I have leg discrepancy problem as well and my right leg is still about 1 inche shorter than the left after a few surgeries done. I am still limping badly and I cannot walk long distances as well. Even my right leg is significantly smaller than the other leg in size and it is very obvious. I sincerely believe that God will heal me one day like how He healed you. :)

20 yrs ago when God performed the same miracle on me, I didn't ask God for a miracle. I just asked God to send someone to lead me to a church he ( God ) was operating in the full gospel. I told God I wasn't going too far from home, the church had to be close by. About a year later, God uprooted a church several states away and moved them at the end of my street where I lived. God then sent someone to my job ( 15 miles away ) to lead me to this church where he performed this same miracle on 9 others besides myself that night. When I was called up on stage, I tried to get out of it but 2 girls filled with the Holy spirit coaxed me on stage. I had an appointment with God that I couldn't get out of that night. Ask God the impossible and he will do the impossible. Then just wait on him to move. ( I live in an area where there are many churches but the local churches were not the one chosen to do what God had planned for me ).

Recieved the same miracle 20 yrs. Ago.... just tickled below the kneecap when pastor started praying.

Glory be to God.if he did it for you he is well able to do the same to me.i had a brain operation 11years ago and it affected my left left leg is shorter and I walk with a limp.trusting God for restoration.

Praise God ,he is able to do all things.I'm happy for you.God bless

praise the Lord of hosts
