Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


Over the years I have probably more stories of healings than any other expression of the miraculous. One of the interesting aspects that often occurs is that once a person has received a touch of the hand of God, they have the capacity to reach out to others with a new ability to bring recovery. Sometimes called “The Healing Touch,” a person’s hands may become warm or even hot while they are praying. When they place their palms on the other person’s area of need, results follow.

Too often people discount their capacity to pray for others or let an  extraordinary moment slip away. Later they may wonder if they really did have an ability to communicate heling. They did!

Here’s another story of divine healing.

Maurice Tester had been a property consultant for some time when his back began giving him fits. The pain became intense. After a medical examination, he was diagnosed with a prolapsed disk. A ‘slipped’ (prolapsed) disk causes sudden, severe lower back pain. Often called a herniated disk, the disorder presses on a nerve root which causes severe pain and other symptoms in the suffer’s leg. Maurice was told that only surgery could correct the problem and that was with possible limited success.

Maurice Tester didn’t like that prognosis. Somewhere along the way he had heard of Ted Fricker who was rumored to have “healing hands.” Maurice went to see him.

Ted Fricker stretched him out on a table before he began running his hands lightly up and down Maurice’s back. In about ten minutes, the pain decreased and then was gone.

When Maurice returned to the specialist, the doctor confirmed he was healed, but said it was impossible for Maurice to have a natural remission.

But he did.

When he returned to talk with Ted Fricker, the healer told him the power to restore Maurice came completely and totally from God.  He explained that all he did was listen to the Holy Spirit speaking in his mind and do what he was told. Maurice went home a satisfied and restored man.

I have personally seen such healing experiences over and over again. Sometimes people are reluctant to have someone pray for them.  Sometimes they are even reluctant to ask for healing. That’s the skepticism and reservation that a secular age has imparted. Sometimes the problem must be prayed for a number of times.  Nevertheless, healing experiences come every day.

Don’t be afraid to pray or seek someone who does. Remember to …expect the unexpected!
