Prophetess Sheila Martin Askew has been a licensed and ordained minister since the age of eighteen. She currently resides in Atlanta Georgia, with her daughters Bithiah,and Jephuneaa. Having been in full time ministry for over thirty five years, she has gained an unusual insight and spiritual sensitivity to the things of the Kingdom of God.
Demonstrating His undying love and sovereign grace, the Almighty God healed her of malignant cancer through an angelic visitation at the age of sixteen while she was yet unsaved. But God was not through with her yet, four months later the Lord gloriously saved and filled her with the Holy Ghost. Then one month later she was being used by God in six of the nine gifts of the Spirit.
It is no wonder that her life has been punctuated by extraordinary events. She had suffered a massive heart attack at the age of nineteen, was pronounced dead and was placed in the morgue for 5 1/2 hours, thus giving her the first of many encounters with the Lord Jesus Christ. After surviving cancer, a heart attack, being shot, and two kidnappings, Prophetess Sheila Martin Askew feels justified in dedicating her life to God.
Because as she has stated numerous times before, “I owe God five lives.” It is no coincidence that God opened a door for her to share her miraculous testimonies on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “700 Club”. It was from that experience that she became a counselor for the CBN network and thus hundreds were blessed by her ministry. She has also appeared on the TBN’s Trinity Broadcasting Network. She continues to counsel, and be a living example that God can save, keep and use any yielded vessel that seeks their completion in Christ.
Prophetess Sheila Martin Askew is founder and president of Promisa Ministries International, which is a worldwide ministry.
