While in my second year at Bethel School of Supernatural ministry, I went on a ministry trip to Wales with Bill Johnson. While we were there, we participated in a healing school with Randy Clark. During the ministry time on a Friday night, a woman who was deaf in her left ear came forward for prayer. The deafness was the result of a surgery some years earlier, during which they had removed her mastoid bone in addition to all the inner ear bones. She was scheduled to have a type of reconstructive surgery in a few weeks after the conference.
I prayed a very simple prayer along the lines of, “Jesus, you know this lady wants to be healed. What can you do about this?” I had an immense sense that He was listening to me as I prayed, so I asked her to check it out after a few seconds. I whispered into her ear while she plugged the other ear since the room was very noisy, and she could hear me! We repeated this several times. I asked someone else to confirm it by walking away from her and speaking from several feet away. She could hear him from six feet away, something she had not been able to do before we prayed.
Later, a doctor who was at the meeting checked her hearing and told her that her left-side hearing was perfect. This meant that she either received a creative miracle (with her inner ear bones restored) or she could hear with no bones in her ear!
