When My First Son was Born Crippled, People Mocked me – Rev Uma Ukpai
The founder and president of Uma Ukpai Evangelistic Association, Reverend Uma Ukpai has made a revelation about how his first son was born crippled and everyone mocked him.
According to the Nigerian preacher, a nurse in the hospital where his child was born called him Nigeria’s biggest idiot. However, in spite of all the abusive words, he was not discouraged. Rather than be discouraged, he inquired of God on what to do and when he followed the instructions of the Lord, the child was healed. In his own words, he said:
“My first son was born crippled, everybody mocked me, I laughed. Why? They did not know every problem has a time limit.
The day my wife gave birth to our second child, her nurse asked me; ‘your son, is he still crippled?’ I said ‘yes madam’. And she said ‘you are the biggest idiot in Nigeria. If God heals, why can’t He start from your house’.
I said, ‘madam, having turned your mouth into a basket mouth, he will start now.’ ‘Father what do I do?’ God said ‘move from song to song… raise a song unto me. I will take over your struggle from you’.
As I was singing, the boy fell under the anointing and slept off, woke up and said to me ‘Daddy angels were here, they have strengthen my bones and my legs, I can walk, I can dance, I can run’. And I said ‘please demonstrate for me’.
I don’t know the situation around your life that had attracted mockery, from today, God shall turn your mockery into miracle, your shame onto fame and your disgrace into unusual grace!”
