Product Description

YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT YOU'RE READING BUT EVERY WORD IS TRUE!! Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe in demonic possession? Do you believe in exorcism? A little girl with irreparable brain damage was pronounced dead by two hospital specialists. Today she is a healthy teenager. A teenage boy whose spine was crushed by a lorry was diagnosed as permanently paralysed. He now plays football with his friends. A curse that brought death over five generations has been lifted. People tormented by demons have been set free. How were such miracles wrought? What do they have in common? They have John Gillespie in common. Who is he? How has he been gifted with such extraordinary power? The Miracle Ship tells John’s story. But it does so much more than that. Yes, the book essentially focuses on miracles. Yes, it contains many extraordinary stories of healing and deliverance. Yes, it focuses strongly on the spiritual warfare that so many Christians are engaged in without any awareness of its dangers. But the book goes to the very heart of what is needed to find healing and deliverance. It tells of the obstacles and difficulties that get in the way of true healing prayer. It reveals the many pitfalls that lie in wait in seemingly innocent healing practices. It spells out in detail the serious dangers that underpin many apparently beneficial New Age therapies. And it offers many examples of the kinds of prayers and life-styles that can bring healing to the body and to the mind. It can even turn around lives that are falling apart (and this has already been several times communicated to the author or John Gillespie by people who have already read this book on Kindle.) This is a book that should be read by all Christians. John’s message is profoundly insightful and, if it is uncompromising, it is laced with faith, forgiveness and truth. Many who have already read the book have described it as ‘life-changing.’ This true account of his life, of the miracles and deliverances that follow his prayers, will amaze you. Millions of people love to hear and read about miracles. Sr. Briege McKenna’s book Miracles Do Happen has sold all over the world in its millions. If you read and liked Miracles Do Happen, you’ll love The Miracle Ship .

5.0 out of 5 stars Healing is Real 29 April 2014
By Mary C. Blowers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Miracle Ship, by Brian O’Hare, is the fascinating true story of Catholic John Gillespie, called by some a “faith healer.” John is always quick to give the credit to God, but he himself does allow God to flow power through him to help others. The title of this book comes from a prophecy over the life of John and his wife Christina, that he would be used in a powerful healing ministry to believers. The prophet saw a ship with Jesus at the bow, and it was full of miracles to be given to those who needed them. Recovering from a degenerative bone disease which caused extreme pain in his leg and hip, solely through prayer, Gillespie knows firsthand the suffering that can take place with chronic illness. He persisted in prayer until the healing finally took place for him. After that, he would pray for others as he came across them, and many people were healed as well, raising even his infant daughter after she had been dead for ten minutes. But all this opened the door to demonic forces to oppose him and attack his family. It became a common occurrence that one or the other of their children woke up screaming at the sight—or even the touch--of a demonic force in their room. These demons were banished each time and the children grew to trust in their father and ultimately in God to keep them safe. Before long people were seeking him out and he had to set up weekly individual healing appointments and monthly group prayer services to be able to help more people.

This is a very practical book as it details many things that can prevent one’s healing. For instance, involvement in the occult, negative patterns of speech or thought, or even possession of certain items in your home can allow demons to invade. If someone has an illness that doctors cannot seem to understand or heal, Gillespie prays and is often given information from the Holy Spirit about the reason for the trouble. Idolatry, not pursuing a relationship with God, and unrepentant sin can all hinder healing and must be addressed. Gillespie has a gift for listening to God about the specific reason in any case and then holds a frank discussion with the ill person asking, in effect, “Do you really wish to be healed?” Helpful information is in the appendices such as lists of items and practices which could lure a demonic spirit into your life. With his remarkable success rate, the church should take notice of this man and his ministry. You won’t be disappointed if you read Brian O’Hare’s The Miracle Ship.

5.0 out of 5 stars With Faith All Things Are Possible! 16 January 2014
By Michael B. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Brian O’Hare’s story of Northern Ireland’s John Gillespie, who is empowered by God with gifts of the Holy Spirit – particularly as a vessel of Divine Healing – is an inspiring and encouraging portrait of what living by faith means in the modern world. Despite Gillespie’s lack of formal education or ministerial credentials, especially within the Catholic context of Ireland, he has been effective in praying for the sick and diseased and more recently helping people get free of spiritual bondages.

Credit O’Hare for his well-balanced portrayal of Gillespie: the simple humility and trust in God’s provision for every need makes the man seem so ordinary and daily-dependent upon his Heavenly Father that Gillespie could easily be anyone’s neighbor anywhere in the world. And yet, his total commitment to pray for the sick without asking for money or notoriety places him in the tradition of other saints of the past.

The Miracle Ship is more than a biography, however. The author includes much helpful information about prayer, scripture, the supernatural realm and dozens of real-life case studies of people despairing and tormented and how Gillespie discerns their problems and then is able to touch them in love and grace and let God do the rest. All glory to Him whom life and healing come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, but needs a little more editing 25 December 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am about half-way through this book, and am finding it quite thought-provoking and inspirational. Mr. O'Hare does need to do a little editing, though. Names and genders are confused in some of the stories, probably as a result of his wishing to hide the identities of those involved. Minor things, to be sure, but they do need to be corrected. (And when they are, I will rewrite this review.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling read, life changing 7 June 2016

I met John Gillespie on my last trip to Ireland. I've two boys that refused to eat, we went through a very challenging time trying to get them to eat something, anything! We took a family trip to Ireland to visit, my mother and she saw how distraught we were. She suggested we take the kids to John Gillespie. I was skeptical but willing to try anything.

I can tell you he is the real deal. An unassuming man, humble with a very strong spiritual presence. He talked to us, prayed with us and over the boys. My kids started to eat and gain weight, we've never looked back.

When we came back to the US I ordered his book. read it in 2 days and it's really changed my life. I realize that we 'own' our sickness and fear. I've bought many copies for people I know.

The Miracle Ship
Brian O’Hare
The Miracle Ship is the biography of Irish faith-healer John Gillespie. A true story, this book takes us along an incredible journey. John, as a young boy, developed Developmental Dysplasia (DDH) a rare and incurable degeneration of the bones. As John grew up, determined to carry on as normal, he went from farm worker on his parents’ farm to manual laborer as young man. Each year the pain becomes more and more unbearable. Hoping for a curing operation, all the doctors gave him was a negative prognosis. A surgery could cripple him forever. That’s when he found and turned to prayer. Not the normal everyday kind of prayer, but an intensive “Please help me” type of direct communication with Jesus and God.
Brian O’ Hare says “John’s prayer was intense; it was real; it was loaded with a single-minded, if unsophisticated worship that poured from his heart and his immense faith.”
This is not a stuffy story, but does show us the immense faith John must have had in the Lord, because it took a long time for his prayers to come true. He never gave up.
He also shows us the humorous side of God as God healed John’s foot but not his knee. ‘“Ah, come on Lord,” John ejaculated, almost without thought, ready to defend his prayer. And, after reflection added “All right, Lord. I’ll go back to the prayer of faith again...and the fasting, Lord. But this time, it’s for my knee.” He looked at the tabernacle and added, “Okay?” And after some thought said, “Uh, that’s both knees, Lord, Okay?”’ That was profound, yes, but a really funny bit.
He also tells his readers about the ability to watch his healing process when John saw the Lord “weaving a new spinal cord...” Incredible.
The first part deals with John’s healing process and his developing relationship with God.
The second part of the book starts us along John’s journey to become a faith healer—kicking and screaming. This was not part of John’s life plan. The bantering continues between John and God: “But I didn’t ask to be chosen.” Answer: “Did you not ask to be healed? Did you not promise to help my people?” Uh, yes, John had in his desperation. So, John was obligated, and he lives up to his promise. And God starts to answer John like he was talking to his next door neighbor.
This book holds great interest in the healing process and John’s relationship with God. It gets heavy and drags when the author starts to get preachy. This book also has minor editing and formatting faults, which should be addressed.
