Can a mental illness like schizophrenia really be cured? The answer goes against the odds. [Video]

Could you use a little inspiration about now?

You’re about to see a short inspirational video that will definitely make you smile.

If you know anything about schizophrenia — one of the most disabling types of mental illness — it’s considered a lifelong sentence and (usually) requires powerful medication to control it.

But then again, when it’s challenged by effective prayer, the so-called “impossible” soon becomes possible.

Watch what happens when Christian Science Chaplain Lidya prays with a man in prison for his mentally ill son…and the life-changing result that occurs.

    Thank You! Lidya! A wonderful expression on God’s love for everyone, no matter where they are, how long something has been ‘around’, age, gender, in jail or out!
    More demonstrations like this in this area are needed. You will be doing more! Lots of God’s Love!

    what I most liked about this video is the way Lidya so humbly gave all the glory to God, and I know this is why God was able to use her to accomplish His will.

    Great important work. Only one in five schizophrenia sufferers is able to become functional. I hope Christian science can change those figures. I have seen prayer effective on a case, too.
