I found a few testimonies to share here. Testimonies:


To Conceive

From Barrenness to Fruitfulness

I was pregnant a month after my wedding in March 2009 but the foetus died before six weeks and I had to go for a dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure to remove the deceased foetus. I became pregnant two more times in April and October 2010 and experienced similar miscarriages. Each time, I had to go through the dreaded D&C procedure.

After three D&C procedures within the span of 18 months, I continued to bleed for five months. The miscarriages were emotionally and physically trying for me and my husband. But we thank God for the godly counsel and enormous support from the pastors in church. They never lost hope and continued to stand in faith with us. My husband and I continued to rest and trust the Lord for restoration, clinging on to God’s promise of fruitfulness in Isaiah 54.

Pregnant for the fourth time in January 2012, I miscarried again. By then, my gynaecologist was at a loss, having exhausted all tests and procedures known to her. God led us to a medical professor specialising in high-risk pregnancy. After a battery of tests, it was discovered that the amount of my natural “killer cells” were exceptionally high. This meant that I was blessed with an exceptionally strong immune system. But these “killer cells” at a higher level also resulted in my past miscarriages.

I was then referred to a rheumatologist with a special interest in reproductive immunology and I was placed on a treatment that gave us a glimmer of hope. Yet our trust was ultimately in the Lord as we understood that science and medicine are limited.

I became pregnant a fifth time in September 2012. But it was found to be an ectopic pregnancy, a life-threatening condition where the embryo grows outside the womb, most often in the fallopian tube. We didn’t know what to do but to trust the Lord that all things would turn out well. Despite treatment, my fallopian tube ruptured and the surgeon had to remove it during an emergency operation to save my life.

The odds of me becoming a mother were now stacked even higher against me, but I knew our God is a God of all possibilities. Surely “He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children.” (Psalm 113:9a, KJV) Some weeks later, Pastor Prince shared that 2013 was the year of the Key of David, of open doors and open wombs. At the end of the service, Pastor Prince requested those who were believing God for a baby to stand up and receive the blessing, especially those women who have had experienced multiple miscarriages. My husband and I boldly received the childbearing promises proclaimed.

I was led by God to serve in the children’s ministry to take care of young children under the age of two and embrace motherhood by faith. I also served in the Chinese Ministry, and encountered a new believer who had been trying for a baby for several years. In the natural, I should have been disqualified to pray for her. But I remembered Pastor Prince’s sermon Healing Flows When Grace Is Exalted, where by faith, Abraham prayed for Abimelech to bear children despite Abraham being childless. I knew that God was setting me up for a big breakthrough, so I just boldly prayed for the new believer to conceive.

In July 2013, I conceived naturally for the sixth time in four years. At week six, I experienced spotting. Fear began to creep into my heart and bad thoughts of the previous miscarriages began to saturate my mind. I was so distressed and suicide thoughts kept playing in my mind. I couldn’t sleep, had panic attacks and would wake up more than 10 times every night, crying and walking around the bedroom.

Pastor Christina Wee and two sisters in church prayed for me and encouraged me to continue to walk by faith and exercise my authority in Christ. Pastor Christina also began to sing worship songs and gradually, the depression lifted and I got better.

Every day, I confessed that I would not miscarry. I also confessed Luke 2:40 over my baby: “And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon him.”

At week 24 of my pregnancy, I experienced excruciating pain at the sides of my stomach, and the doctors were convinced that I would deliver the baby prematurely. I rejected the bad report and kept on confessing that I would carry the baby to full term. Finally, at week 38, my son was born healthy and strong. The Word of God is so alive that I witnessed Luke 2:40 being manifested in his life. My son had no allergies or jaundice at birth and he never got unwell after each vaccination. He rolled over for the first time when he was three months and 22 days old. At four months old, he weighed over 8 kg and according to the clinical chart, he was in the 97 percentile for his height and weight!

Thank you, Pastor Prince, for preaching the gospel, helping us to grow in faith as we hear the preaching of the Word. Your ministry has indeed transformed our lives radically!

To Deliver a Healthy Baby

A Miracle Baby

In 2014, I was pregnant and had a detailed scanning done at the 20th week of my pregnancy. The doctor told my husband and me that our baby had a short femur. As I was turning 40, I faced a very high risk of having complications during pregnancy. Thus, the doctor referred me to a specialist and they concluded that my baby was four weeks behind normal growth, meaning that his legs and arms looked like he was 16 weeks old instead of 20 weeks old — with the likelihood that he could be a dwarf!

To confirm this, the doctors suggested that I take a test which was invasive to both the adult and baby, to determine if my genes or my husband’s genes had a family history of dwarfism, and if my baby was really a dwarf. If the result was positive, my husband and I could then make a decision to keep or abort the baby.

We were devastated by the heartbreaking news as we had found out that I was pregnant on Christmas Day, and believed that our baby was a gift from God.

Finally, my husband and I decided to keep our baby and not go for further tests. We trusted that God would make this precious gift PERFECT for us and give us a normal child. We claimed His promises in Psalm 139:1 and Psalm 139:5 (NLT), “O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me… You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head.”

We continued to rest in the Lord and knew that as long as we rest in His love for us, we are protected from all harm. In August 2014, I went through an emergency caesarean birth. Miraculously, a healthy baby was born. He is currently 22 months old, a healthy and happy boy, blessed with brains and good looks. To God be all the glory!

To Have a Supernatural Pregnancy

Set Free from Pregnancy Fears

When my husband and I decided to have a baby, I was worried about conceiving. My mother had difficulties conceiving and I feared that it might be hereditary. Despite my fears, I told myself that I am in Christ and would inherit His genes. I went ahead to buy books on baby names and believed God for a baby.

God is faithful and I was pregnant soon after. But that also brought about fears of a difficult pregnancy with symptoms such as morning sickness, water retention, leg cramps and excessive weight gain. But I remembered Pastor Prince’s message about the power of our tongue so I reminded myself to speak good things over my body even though at that time, I was uncertain if it would work. I would speak forth that I would not have water retention, no excessive weight gain and so on in the name of Jesus. And it worked! God kept water retention at bay. I could wear my rings and shoes until I delivered and there was no persistent nausea or food craving. I also did not put on excessive weight from the pregnancy even though I did not diet or exercise. Talk about effortless success! This is only possible in Christ!

Whenever I shared with my care group about my pregnancy, I would tell them that I am expecting a supernatural pregnancy and it came to pass. The day I delivered my baby, I was still shopping for groceries in between contractions. Upon arriving at the hospital, I was warned by nurses that the first birth would take hours. But I told God that I want to be like the Hebrew women, who would give birth even before the midwives arrived. After that, I requested for the nurses to check my progress, the nurses said I was ready to deliver! Praise the Lord!

As we prepare to plan for our next child, I would proclaim and speak forth once again and ask God for bigger blessings because our God is a big God!

Recover from Post-Natal Blues

No More Post-Natal Blues

Being a first-time mother, I was not fully prepared for caring for a newborn as well as the demands of breastfeeding. It was my desire as a mother fully provide for my baby. However, the struggles of surviving on interrupted sleep and worrying if the baby was having enough to drink took a toll on my body.

Slowly, I slipped into post-natal blues. Eventually, I ended up with mastitis and abscess, a form of bacterial infection inside my breast. I had to go for a procedure and was put on antibiotics to prevent a recurrence.

At that point, I was so depressed and exhausted that I broke down at the clinic. Then, one day when I was at home with the baby, I saw Pastor Prince’s book Live The Let-Go Life which was given to me by a dear friend of mine who attends New Creation Church. She had visited me at the hospital when I delivered and given me the book.

So, I started reading the book while the baby napped. After some time, it became so clear to me what God was doing for me in my life even before I knew Him, and what the Lord Jesus had done for us at the cross.

One week after Resurrection Sunday in 2018, I started attending New Creation Church. My sister, who is also a member of the church, started attending services with me and we got to spend time together every Sunday.

In November 2018, both of us were baptised together!

Now, I have a healthy baby boy who is turning 16 months old and I am believing God for another baby girl!

I am no longer suffering from post-natal blues and all my friends have been telling me how positive I have become. I have also learnt to enjoy being a mummy ever since I understood the need to let go of all our worries to the Lord.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for loving me even before I knew You. I am greatly blessed, highly favoured and deeply loved. Thank you, Pastor Prince, for writing the book!
