SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- What would make 100,000 people stand in line to get into a church?
That question will be answered November 28, 29 at St. Peter Episcopal Church in Redwood City and St. Paul Episcopal Church in Burlingame on November 30 when Issam Nemeh, M.D. arrives to conduct prayer and healing services for all in attendance. A cardiothoracic anesthesiologist, Dr. Nemeh has become known as "The Physician of Unshakeable Faith."
"There is a special value in these public healings," says Nemeh in explaining why he conducts them. Often on his feet for ten hours or more at each service, Dr. Nemeh says, "Healings and miracles that happen in front of our eyes inspire believers and persuade the skeptics to become believers because they witness physical proof of God's work."
Local psychotherapist Mary Richards, M.A. has experienced that proof first-hand. Suffering from severe neurological issues and vertigo, Richards was discouraged when physicians throughout California were unable to help her. So she set search on the internet for alternative ways to treat her condition. She discovered Dr. Nemeh's website http://www.pathtofaith.com, and found testimonials of people who had been healed with Dr. Nemeh's intercessory help.
Richards telephoned the office, and after praying with Dr. Nemeh found some immediate relief. Subsequent calls led to more relief and final healing. Mary's husband, Pastor Channing Smith, of Transfiguration Episcopal Church amazed at the change of his wife's condition and grateful for her complete recovery, invited Dr. Nemeh to hold a three-day ecumenical event.
Dr. Nemeh refuses to accept credit or acclaim for Mary Richards' recovery or that of the thousands of others who have been healed through prayer.
"God, and only God, can heal." A humble, soft spoken man, Nemeh views his role in the healings as merely an instrument of God -- a conduit between God and those who seek his help.
Local television stations in Cleveland, Ohio, where Dr. Nemeh lives have chronicled his work. As a result of a weeklong series on the local ABC affiliate, 10,000 people descended upon Sts. Peter and Paul to attend a healing service back in 2005.
The services will be held at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Redwood City on November 28 and 29, and at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Burlingame on November 30.
