I began having problems with a lot of pain in my jaw. I went to the doctor and he told me I had TMJ and he couldn’t help me that I needed to go to a dentist who specialized in TMJ treatments. When I contacted them the cost for a base treatment was $4000 and I didn’t have dental insurance so that was completely out of the question. My doctor told me he could give me shots in my jaw to control the pain but I was not interested. He told me it would get so bad I would want the shots. I could not open my mouth very wide and if I tried to sing my jaw would lock on me. The bad pain was not constant but it was almost unbearable. I was starting to consider the shots. One Sunday night in church while I was standing up front near the altar, my husband and pastor, Bro. Dupree walked by me and prayed for me. As he started to walk off, he laid his hand on my jaw and said “In Jesus Name”. Because the bad pain was not constant, I did not realize what had happened until about a week later. All of a sudden it came to me that I had not had any pain. I could open my mouth as wide as I used to with no pain. It has been about 2 ½ years since God healed me and I am still pain free. It was a joy for me to report to my doctor and my dentist that I would not be needing shots because God had healed me. He is a great God.
