Before leaving the medical center, he publicly expressed deep gratitude, not only for the care he received from one of the world’s leading cardiologists and medical teams, but also for the prayers of family, well-known leaders, partners, and ministry staff members from around the world.
“I’ve seen the hand of God at work, both through prayer and the physicians,” Hinn said. “God is faithful. My heart is strong. I have no heart damage. My arteries are not blocked. There is no arterial damage. The AFib is being treated effectively, and my rapid heart rate has reduced considerably. I’m feeling stronger every day. The prognosis is good for a speedy and complete recuperation, and I’m so glad to be heading home to continue my road to recovery.”
He adds, “I’ve been literally overwhelmed with all the outpouring of love from around the globe. People around the world began praying very quickly after I was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit with fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, and fluid in my lungs. Shortly after I arrived at the center, dear friends such as Reinhard Bonnke and Kenneth Copeland flew here to pray over me. As the news spread, leaders such as Dr. Pat Robertson, Morris Cerullo, Tommy Barnett, Jack Hayford, Jan Crouch, Rod Parsley, Pastors Dennis and Eunice John, and Steve Munsey sent and phoned such warm greetings and kind words. Dr. Paul Dhinakaran from India, who has prayer centers around the world, called to let us know that all of his people were interceding for me. There are so many more than I can’t name them all.”
Ronn Torossian, spokesman for Benny Hinn Ministries, reports hundreds of leaders and ministers have sent well-wishes: “What has happened is truly a wonderful outpouring of love and support for a trusted leader and Bible teacher who has impacted the world in a way that few have. Comments, especially from pastors throughout the world have been especially touching to Pastor Benny—‘You have no idea how much you mean to this generation…your greatest ministry is still ahead for you…there is so much to be done as you teach the Word of God and impart the anointing to so many young people…I can’t express what your ministry has meant to me and our nation.’ It has been a literal flood of tributes, well-wishes, and expressions of love for a man who has traveled around the globe non-stop for over forty years. I know the latest report of Pastor Benny’s release to go home will be welcome news for all.”
People around the globe know Pastor Benny Hinn as a noted evangelist, teacher, and the author of best-selling books including Good Morning, Holy Spirit, Prayer That Gets Results, Blood in the Sand, and Lamb of God.
