Dear Brother Bob,
In 2005, I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis.
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a medical condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves at the level of the lumbar vertebra. This is usually due to the common occurrence of spinal degeneration that occurs with aging. It can also sometimes be caused by spinal disc herniation, osteoporosis or a tumor. In the cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) region it can be a congenital condition to varying degrees.
Spinal stenosis may affect the cervical or thoracic region in which case it is known as cervical spinal stenosis or thoracic spinal stenosis. In some cases, it may be present in all three places in the same patient. Lumbar spinal stenosis results in low back pain as well as pain or abnormal sensations in the legs, thighs, feet or buttocks, or loss of bladder and bowel control. My doctors at Kaiser Medical Center in Los angeles, recommended a battery of medications which left me feeling like a zombie. I could not do my job or function normally and spent the day in bed sleeping up to 18 hours a day. I would wake up take more pills for the pain and go back to sleep. I was assigned Neurontin and Oxycodone and Oxycotin....horribly addicitve and damaging drugs. I prayed not to become dependent on them and took these pills until 2006 as per doctor's orders and ended up in an almost vegetative state. I was depressed and I was not living. Someone from our parish church recommended that I attend the SCRC 2006 convention in Anaheim and so I packed up my walker and medications and attended the Convention. I wandered from work shop to workshop and attended one with Bob Canton. During the healing session and prayer you asked if anyone was suffering from a back problem and I went up with my walker . I walked up with my walker to receive a blessing for my painful back problems and sat down.
About 3 to 4 weeks later, I felt stronger and wanted to lead a more active /productive life. I got out of bed and went to Mass to thank God for my new strength. I hated the medications stopped taking them, wrapped them up in a big plastic bag and got rid of them. I am much stronger now and walk 5 or more miles a day, which is way beyond my expectations. I have had xrays following my bout with spinal problems and the doctors / technicians say that there is evidence of surgery and healing on my back. I tell them that I have NEVER EVER had back surgery. This leaves them very puzzled. They could not fully explain what happened to me. I still have a little bit of pain but I manage it with over the counter acenometaphine and Vitamin B tablets. I am grateful to God for your healing hands and prayers. Thanks be to God for His mercy in healing me and for your ministry.

Testimonial: Healing of Panic attacks and other maladies
On September 21st and 22nd, 2012, the Lord made it possible for me to attend the Spiritual Warfare Conference led by Robert Canton of Robert Canton Ministries. This conference took place at the Holy Trinity Parish in Spruce Grove, Alberta. On the second day and right before lunch, Robert at one point said that there was someone in the room that was suffering from panic attacks to the point of paralysis. Since nobody came forward as I also was looking around for someone to stand up, Robert, waiting a little longer for a response finally said: "that person is here, and that person is now healed!"
I didn't believe Robert was referring to me until, suddenly, right after he uttered these words, I experienced a warm feeling that started in my feet and slowly made its way up my cavs muscles. Confused by this sudden occurrence, I then realized that Robert had been speaking about me all along.
See, I had been suffering from an undiagnosed condition that started in 2000 but got worse in 2002. At the time, I was in college at the College of St. Joseph, VT doing my undergraduate studies and playing competitive basketball for my school. It was in this summer of 2002 that this condition, which I will describe shortly got worse. A condition that prevented me from playing my last year of college basketball, right after, as captain of the team, winning in our first conference championship in school history.
What I would experience in my worst state, was muscles seizing up to the point where I could neither walk nor get out of bed. My muscles felt so stiff that simply moving them would cause tremendous pain. No medicine, no pain killers, no muscle relaxers could help. The only thing I could do would be to laid down and simply wait for the "storm" to pass.
In addition to that, constant fatigue is something that had become part of my daily life. Fatigue and muscles seizing up, those two went hand-in-hand and there was nothing that I could do. The only thing I could do was to rest as much as I could and lay down. I couldn't walk properly because my muscles had lost their flexibility. I would naturally do my best to walk properly and hide it from the people that saw me, but every step, every swing of the arm, every attempt to sit or get up would trigger discomforting pain. It felt as if my muscles had limited flexibility, a reduced range of motion coupled with stiffness. And doing normal day-to-day movements would take them out of their range of motion. Thus, triggering the excruciating pain. These occurrences would come and go, they were random, and some days would be worse than others. One day, I would be ok, the next, it would not be a good day. But it would never fail that when I was under a tremendous amount of stress, these "attacks" would surface and I'd be affected for a couple of days or even a week.
My muscles have seized up to the point where I would fall to the ground and not being able to move in excruciating pain. And there have been several times where I needed someone to help me walk, get out of bed and even help me move my limbs because I couldn't do it myself because of the pain. Help me, for instance, lift and extend my legs on a couch or bed after sitting.
On the days where I could move around, this condition still made its presence felt with sudden painful muscle spasm or twitch to a lesser degree. I'd gone to several doctors and hospitals both in the United States and Canada, done a variety of tests and nothing would be conclusive. These tests included, blood work, heart exam, nerve tests and CAT scans (CT scans). All doctors would say that based on all the tests I've done til this day, that I had a healthy body and they had no definitive answer for me.
Because of this lingering condition, over the years, I've missed classes in college because of it, work days during my professional career, left work early, came in to work late and even had to take leaves from work as a result.
After Robert Canton announce the healing, I could feel that, this gentle fire was in specific areas of my back: my lower back and shoulder blades. It's as if it was targeting specific areas of my body that were damaged and needed healing.
And yes, that day, I was healed by our Lord Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
An hour later when the conference resumed, I could feel the warm feeling in my forearms moving from my elbow to my wrist as if I was being scanned.
Late that afternoon, I could feel it in my right leg below the knee with the intensity of this fire being heightened a notch. The strange thing I noticed about the fire is that it felt like a fire. I felt all the effects of a fire without the burning. This gentle fire had been working on my body non-stop since Robert said that I had been healed.
And following Robert's advice, I've read the Healing Prayers every morning to ensure the healing effect of the Holy Spirit continue to work on me. A week and two day has gone by since the conference, and I still feel this gentle fire in my body. Now, I feel relieved, full of energy again and feel that I am myself again. September 22, 2012 is a day that I'll never forget. Thank you Robert for giving me my life back. Praise the Lord.
Also thank you Chita for praying for my family. Your prayers have helped bring peace in our home since my sisters don't suffer from spiritual nightmares as frequently as they used to. And Robert, they've also been reading your Spiritual Warfare Prayers before going to sleep and it has quickly made a difference in their lives. They have better dreams now.
By the way, I've shared the Healing Prayers with relatives, friends and those I believe will find it helpful. And will continue to do so. Thank you for everything Robert and Chita. May God continue to bless you and protect you in your travels.

Testimony: Healing of Glaucoma
Because I have lost a great deal of sight in my left eye due to glaucoma; and because glaucoma is incurable and surgery was done to help further loss; and the Doctor at UC Davis had me undergo an MRI of the brain and optic nerve, naturally, I was so afraid. Some good friends from St. Luke's Parish said I should go to the Healing Mass. Their faith is so strong and they told me that many people have been healed through your ministry. So, in September, I attended the Healing Mass. You and your team prayed over me.
It is hard to explain the experience of total surrender to God, except to say, it is a feeling of complete peace and trust, which for me in itself is a miracle. I know from just that experience. God was teaching me: we do not just see with our eyes, we see through our emotions, our fears, and the baggage of past experiences; we see through our soul. Without TRUST in God, we cannot say confidently: "I believe, I love, I adore, I hope...." That is what God wanted me to learn in that healing....then, secondly, ....I received a call from UC Davis that the results of the MRI were: no abnormalities, no lesions.... and it was not necessary to follow up with the neuro-ophalmonologist. Thank God. My eyes have really improved a lot ever since that day you prayed over me.... and new glasses will improved my vision even more. I trust in God's power and goodness. I know now, fear is not faith. Thank you, Bob Canton and your healing teams for bringing God's Love and healing to us.....sometimes I think......well, there is a "horse whisperer" to calm down unmanageable horses.....and a "dog whisperer" to help dogs with all sorts of problems......so, it is that I can call Bob Canton, the "soul whisperer".....and I mean that with thanks and respect and I ask God to help you reach out and help as many souls as possible. God bless you and your healing teams. You are a great blessing to those who are sick and in need of God's healing touch.
Testimony: I was blind but now I see!!!
Hi my name is Tanya Michelle Avendaño, I was born blind on my left eye. I attended the healing service at St. James Church in McMinnville, Oregon on October 5th, 6th and 7th. I was healed by the Lord on Friday, October 5th, when Bob Canton was praying for healing over me, I started to see from my left eye after his prayers. I thought I was imagining things then he asked if there was anyone here who had experienced healing. I raised my hand and praised the Lord for the miracle of giving me my vision on my left eye. This is a miracle that God did for me as I was completely blind on my left eye, all I can say is that miracles do exist. During the Parish Mass on Sunday morning, Oct. 7th, Deacon Raul Rodriguez, during his homily, asked those who were healed during the Healing Workshop by Bob Canton to please stand up. Many stood up including me. I was seated way back by the entrance of the Church. From the altar, he asked me to cover my right eye with my hand and to follow his hand movements to test my vision. I was able to follow everything that he did . The world looks different for me now that I can see with my both eyes!!!
Praise the Lord! My healing proved that Jesus is truly a loving and healing God.
Testimony: My Awesome healing
My left shoulder had been bothering me for 2-3 years. I'd had a cortisone shot, and been to physio therapist where they did all kinds of therapy, including acupuncture. I was being sent to a surgeon but needed a MRI for that visit. When the report came back, it said I had four things wrong with my shoulder. I had osteoarthritis, a pinched nerve, and two separate tears in the tendons.
During the Friday evening of Bob Canton's talk about Setting the Captives Free in Spruce Grove/Stony Plain, Alberta, he stopped himself and said, "someone here has a sore shoulder. Circle your shoulder a few times and then stick your hand straight up in the air because in Jesus name it is healed". I had been circling my shoulder, and was stunned when I was able to stick it straight up! I hadn't been able to get my arm up past my head ( in fact it was difficult to do my hair with that hand). PRAISE BE TO GOD...MY SHOULDER IS HEALED!!!
I thank our God for His love that enabled me to hear about the Conference, to be able to attend, and for blowing the embers of my faith into a bon-fire once again. I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ here at St. Gabriel's parish, Athabasca Alberta. May St. Gabriel, our patron, continue to bring the message of the Love and Power of the name "Jesus" to our community. And may God, in His Love and Mercy, give us the ears to hear and the open hearts to grab hold of that message and pass it on. I pray also that the Lord will continue to use Bob Canton to heal His people in Jesus' name. Amen.
Testimony from a Catholic Priest
Because I could not hear Robert Cantons talks at the Spiritual warfare conference in September as I was hearing confessions all weekend at the same time I was listening to the audio CD of the talk while driving in my car last month in December. There is a part on CD #5 where he speaks about the blessings and graces of the sacrament of confession and following that moment he asked about the name of the Priests hearing confession and my name way mentioned. Shortly after that spot on the CD he began speaking about people with lower and upper back pain. As he was speaking I could feel a loosening of tension of a key spot in by back that I had an injury when I was a teen. If seemed as if he was talking directly to me in the CD and my back in that particular spot to this day feels better than ever since that day traveling and listening to the audio CDs. I feel that God has confirmed this healing ministry through this experience in my life and continues to guide and open my heart to walking this path. My soul rejoices in the Lord and all the good things He has done for me. All glory and praise to Jesus Christ today and always and blessings one hundred fold to those and faithful and obedient to His Word.
Fraternally in Christ,

I had asked for prayers for my husband and for me . We have been trying to have a baby for 4 years and were beginning to give up hope.........You and your wife prayed over me and my husband. You told us to be thankful to the Lord because "He is doing some wonderful things for us."

Praise GOD we are sooooo happy, & we wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts....God Bless you and your wife and your families!!!

Thank you Jesus, again thank you soooo much for all your help. GOD BLESS!!!
