An Olympic leap comes in those moments when “I can’t” becomes “I can,” according to writer and spiritual healer Keith Wommack. He even applies this perspective to health challenges. Wommack writes this about Cory, a young pitcher he knows.
“During a game, after delivering a pitch, the ball was batted directly back at him. Cory caught the line drive, however, not with his glove, but with his bare hand. The next day the hand was swollen and he couldn’t grip a ball. An x-ray revealed a fracture.
“Cory was to pitch again in four days. And, although a doctor and his coach felt that his taking the mound for this next scheduled appearance was impossible, Cory knew from experience that prayer was a silent, mental force that could help.
“Cory had planned to take a seven-hour trip to his girlfriend’s cottage. Despite the injury, he followed through with his plans. While he traveled, he prayed – affirming that he was a spiritual being and lived to express divine soundness and action. He refused to accept that he could be sidelined.”
Wommack describes this prayer based, Biblical outlook as the “I can” attitude— because God can. Four days later he was able to pitch successfully after an X-ray was taken and showed complete healing. The doctor was amazed, and during the game Cory struck out seven of the eight batters from the opposing team.
