The pregnancy journey of a woman isn’t perfect sometimes. Francesca Battistelli is an award-winning Christian singer, and she’s already a mother of four when she got pregnant with her fifth child this year when the doctors said she needed emergency surgery.

Francesca has recorded six albums such as Just a Breath, Hundred More Years, Christmas, and Own It. She’s been nominated and won a lot of awards from the GMA Dove and the Grammys. The famous Christian singer said she woke up in terrible pain one day and thought it would just subside.

Francesa said, “I called my parents basically in tears from the pain in my lower abdomen. They came over, and we waited it out for a couple of hours, but the pain got worse. We called my midwife again, and she sent us to the emergency room.”

This is a long post, but I promise it’s worth it! ♥️ A few months ago, at about 10 weeks pregnant, I woke up in excruciating pain. Matt was out of town, and I was concerned. I called my midwife who said to watch for a few things and report back. I then called my parents basically in tears from the pain in my lower abdomen. They came over and we waited it out for a couple of hours, but the pain got worse. We called my midwife again, and she sent us to the emergency room. By the time we arrived, the pain had disappeared. I was grateful but confused. I knew I had a cyst on my right ovary, but no one had been concerned about it until now. Turns out the cyst was very large—about 10cm (the size of a small grapefruit or large orange), and it had twisted the ovary, cutting off the blood supply and causing the intense pain. By the time we reached the hospital, it had twisted back, which is normal and why the pain suddenly stopped. My hubby made it just in time for the OB on call to tell us that she wanted me to have surgery to remove it. She said it was ok to take a few days to think about it. We did. We met with our midwife and a trusted OB who was very torn on the matter. He didn’t want to operate while I was pregnant, but he said this kind of cyst does not shrink or go away on it’s own—“it would have to be a miracle,” he said—and it would possibly twist again and cause issues. He said surgery was inevitable, but it was my choice if we waited until after the birth to remove it. We talked and prayed and prayed and talked. I asked so many dear friends for prayer for wisdom and for the cyst to disappear. After praying it through, we just didn’t have peace about doing the surgery now. We believed God could heal me! After a few days, my faith-filled hubby looked at me and said, “your belly looks smaller. That cyst is shrinking.” I smiled and prayed it was true. Let’s just say he was convinced, and I was hopeful. Fast forward to about a week ago, when we went in for our 20-week ultrasound. The sweet tech said, “we will take a look at that cyst while we’re here,” and Matt said, “you won’t find it. It’s gone. We’ve been praying.” (continued in comments)

The Christian artist continued, “By the time we arrived, the pain had disappeared. I was grateful but confused.

The Obgyn of Francesca wants the singer to go under the knife, but the musician decided to wait. She yearns to pray and tell her friends to pray along with her. Francesca explained, “We met with our midwife and a trusted OB who was very torn on the matter. He didn’t want to operate while I was pregnant, but he said this kind of cyst does not shrink or go away on its own—’it would have to be a miracle,’ he said—and it would possibly twist again and cause issues. He said surgery was inevitable, but it was my choice if we waited until after the birth to remove it”.

She said, “After praying it through, we didn’t have peace about doing the surgery now. We believed God could heal me!”

Francesa and her family are faithful to God, and they know God will heal her, and they can feel it because her cyst is becoming smaller. Her nurse measured her cyst and noticed that it’s just an inch, and it’s gone.

The singer remembered, “I smiled and prayed it was true. Let’s say he was convinced, and I was hopeful. Fast forward to about a week ago, when we went in for our 20-week ultrasound. The sweet tech said, ‘we will take a look at that cyst while we’re here,’ and my husband said, ‘you won’t find it. It’s gone. We’ve been praying”.

Francesa said, “We all (my sweet midwife included) praised God and thanked Jesus right there in the ultrasound room! He did a miracle in my body, and this sweet tech (who is pregnant with her first baby) got to witness it! She also said, We are overwhelmed by the goodness and the BIGNESS of God, and we want the world to know that He still heals!!! My faith has been so strengthened by this, and I pray yours is too”.

Francesca’s testimonial is inspirational for a lot of people. Her social media posts have thousands of shares and likes because God’s love and healing power moved people.
