Cancer-Stricken Actor Val Kilmer Tells Americans Potency Of ‘Power of Prayer’ – It Goes Viral

Val Kilmer, known for playing Batman and holding roles in films such as Top Gun, is now crediting prayer with his cancer remission.

Kilmer, a Christian Scientist, has gone from denying that he ever had an issue with his health, to now speaking publicly about how he feels he was cured due to the power of prayer, saying that it’s as “potent today as it was in Jesus’ time.”

We reported on Kilmer’s health back in April of this year, when he participated in a popular online forum using the common “Ask Me Anything” question and answer threat. That marked the first time that he had publicly discussed his health situation, saying that he spent months denying to himself that he was in poor health. There had been a rumor started by actor Michael Douglas who said that Kilmer had terminal cancer, because Kilmer approached him for a recommendation for a specialist. Years ago, Douglas himself was diagnosed with tongue cancer and last November, he gave an interview saying that his prayers were with Kilmer, letting it slip that he too had cancer was why “you haven’t heard much from Val lately,” calling him a “wonderful guy.”

When Michael Douglas let that information out, Kilmer posted on his Facebook denying that he had cancer, only “a lump in my throat.”

In the “Ask Me Anything” question and answer, Kilmer confirmed that he did have cancer and that he had a “healing of cancer.”

Kilmer, in an interview, said that people have made “extraordinary assumptions” when it came to speculating about his beliefs about how prayer helped him heal. The body is complex and can be a “complete mystery.”

What still is a mystery is the nature of Kilmer’s cancer. He hasn’t divulged the type of cancer, or how serious it was, only that he had indeed had cancer, but that it’s healed now. He said that he was afraid of what he didn’t understand and is now recovering from side effects saying that his voice still doesn’t quite sound the same.

Kilmer said:

“I’m so grateful I’ve experienced firsthand what consistent prayer and love can offer.”

Going back to the “Ask Me Anything,” commenters expressed worry that his religious beliefs would interfere with his recovery, but he said that “people that know I am a Christian Scientist make the assumption that I have somehow endangered myself,” stating that “many, many people have been healed by prayer through recorded history” and “many, many people have died by whatever was modern medicine.”
