Praying for Healing
Praying for Healing. Through the
avenue of prayer, power
is made available to you that is dynamic in its working. The Bible
tells us that " ... the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man
availeth much" (James 5:16).
Your prayer will provide healing for
you, as long as you ask for it in the name of Jesus. John 16:23,24 And
in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive,
that your joy may be full.
There it is. Maybe the reason a lot
of folks aren't getting healed is because they're asking Jesus instead
of asking the Father. The Word says you should not ask Jesus for
anything. You must ask the Father, in Jesus' name. It says very
clearly, " ... Whatsoever ye shall ask ... in my name ... " (verse 23).
Learn how to follow the
instructions. You're walking around asking Jesus, the Holy Ghost, and
everybody else to heal you. God has a method-a prescribed way of doing
things-and you can't break His divine order if you want to get healed.
The reason Christians don't get what
the Bible says they can have is because they won't follow the
instructions. They want to do things their way.
God says that if you want what He's
got, you've got to do things His way. Pray to the Father. Put His name
into your vocabulary. Learn how to talk to Him constantly. Spend time
with Him in the morning or on your way to work to gain understanding
He's already given you instructions
on how to pray in the name of Jesus. For example, you could say,
"Father, in the name of Jesus, heal me. In the name of Jesus, set me
free. Father, in the name of Jesus, touch my body."
According to the Word, the Father
has to do what you ask Him to do in the name of Jesus. That's the
endorsement you need to get your check cashed. You 'can't take a check
to the bank without the proper endorsement and expect it to be cashed.
The teller will give it right back
to you, because it doesn't have the right endorsement. But, if it's
properly endorsed, the teller has to cash it. It doesn't matter if you
look like a crook or if you're acting suspiciously.
The check must be cashed if it's
properly endorsed. Likewise, when you pray to the Father and your
prayer has been properly endorsed in the name of Jesus, God has to
bring it to pass. He'll make it happen.
Child of God, it's time to cash your
check! You've been holding on to sickness when you had the check right
in your Bible. Endorse that check called "healing" and get ready to
testify about the goodness of the Lord.
The Bible says in Mark 11:24,
"Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when ye pray,
believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." This simply
means that when you pray, you believe the Word so much that you just go
ahead and claim your healing.
If someone says you still look the
same, you tell him
or her that you are healed and you're not going to
let go of that promise. Tell them you believe and receive divine
healing and God has to bring it to pass.
