I Have Hylephobia

I keep thinking I am being punished by God. I have this terrible phobia. It's called hylephobia. It is the fear of epilepsy. I know this sounds crazy but everyday I live with the fear that I will have a seizure. No medical background to this. Can you pray for me?

Prayer from afar can certainly help, it can give you a spiritual boost and help direct you where you need to go for help. Spiritual/pastorial, and/or medical.
If there's no medical basis for this, it's spiritual. You might need a deliverance from the spirit of fear.

Why are you afraid of epilepsy? Most epileptics live very full and productive lives. Also, most people who have epilepsy have siezures that are so minor that they never even notice they are epileptic at all.

All of us have some kinds of physical and/or mental infirmities, and God see us through them. We're all imperfect, and that's OK.

Helen::"Fear of the lord"is a gift of the Holy spirit surely you learnt thaat when you were a child of God.Never heard of fear of the devil ONLY REJECTION.I guess you would fear him if he was in your camp,as then, he is in control.Do you agree?

I suggest that when you have this fear, pray the following verse:

7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

This has helped me in the past to realize the fear isn't from God but from the devil. Since Christ has defeated the devil, you can then pray in Jesus' name against the devil.

I once had a fear type phobia. The way to deal with it is to keep as busy as possible so that your mind is occupied with other things.

Fear comes from the devil. Have you noticed that it never comes to pass? Pray against it and rebuke it in Jesus' name and plead Jesus' Blood over it. Also, get prayer for it too. Bless you.

What did Jesus say the cause of most sickness is from? Curses exist and they can be handed down through generations.

If you are epileptic, or have any other medical problem that needs attention, you need to consult a doctor. A neurologist will attend to your concerns about epilepsy. The web is not the place to look for matters about health. Um, like Jesus told Zacchaeus, come down from that tree, you won't see anything from up there.

Paula, are you afraid of loosing control? I had a Grande' Mol seizure in 1984 from drinking tea with Aspertame (Nutra Sweet) in it. I don't remember anything that happened at that time. I was concerned until they found the cause. Pray that God takes your fear away, you will be in my prayers sister.

Paula, it is written: "Behold I've given you AUTHORITY to TRAMPLE upon serpents and demons and over all the power of the enemy so that NOTHING shall injure you." Satan, I command you to loose Paula and let her go in JESUS name. All things are subject to the name of Jesus and you must loose her in Jesus name. Thank you Father God. Thank you Lord that you came to set the captives free and as we continue to pray, Paula will be set free in Jesus name. Amen

Do you have a relative with an epilepsy? Or do you suffered a disease before that could become the "springboard" for epilepsy to develop? If none, then you are just punishing yourself. Our prayer for you not to suffer seizure will not help you. My prayer is for you to dig down into yourself and go into the root cause of your tremendous insecurity and fear. God bless you.
---Bebet3754 on 5/9/06


Take hold of the Master's hand, and when you walk with Jesus, the fear will leave. I'll pray for you: Papa, we turn to you. We know you, Almighty, are in complete control of our lives, we give our whole entire life and feelings and thoughts up to you. Take away Paula's fears, and the fear of epilepsy, and Lord replace them with you and your peace which passes all understanding. Your perfect love casts out all fear. You are our Rock, and we thank you for your sure foundation. In Jesus we pray. Amen.

Remember, dear soul, God has NOT given us a spirit of fear.
And so what if you DO have an epileptic seizure? There are medicines to control it. Given the right stimuli, ANYBODY can be made to have such convulsions. I repeat: God has NOT given us a spirit of fear, and God does NOT punish people by striking them with epilepsy or other diseases. In the mean time, see your doctor.
