Stories about Missouri Democratic Rep. Cori Bush miraculously healing a woman with tumors and causing a sick toddler to walk have resurfaced.

In her 2022 autobiography “The Forerunner: A Story of Pain and Perseverance in America,” Bush wrote about her time working as a faith healer. {snip}

One instance included helping a disabled toddler to walk.

“The child had had a bleed in her brain, shortly after she was born, and so couldn’t walk. She had never taken a step in her life,” Bush wrote. “I carried the child from the prayer room in the back of the church out into the sanctuary . . . ‘Walk,’ I said gently to the three-year-old girl, ‘you will walk.’ And this girl took her first step. Then another, and another. She walked.”


Another example was Bush healing a woman from multiple tumors.

“One woman whom we met had several visible tumors on her torso. She was due to have surgery but lacked health insurance and living in the park. One of the tumors was particularly painful to her. I laid hands on her and prayed, and I felt that my hand was no longer touching a tumor. It shrank along with the others on her body,” Bush recounted.
