Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) Ministries,founder and leader, Prophet Walter Magaya has warned people against defaulting on medication after receiving “spiritual healing”, saying this could cause health complications.
Speaking at the handover of R1,2 million for various water and sanitation projects at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, Magaya said spiritual healing was real but needed to be corroborated by a medical report.
“We have attended to many people who would have been diagnosed of various ailments but before we put them through our formal prayer lines, we always demand a medical history from the hospital and also after praying for them, we always refer them back to the medical doctor to be tested so that we can have a complete testimony,” Magaya said.
He went on to say that healing is powerful, however, there is need to get proof of recovery from the medical doctor who has prescribed the medication to the patient and they would as well allege the patient to stop.
He added: “I always say it is not me who gave you the medication in the first place, so I don’t have the right to tell you to stop taking the pills.”
