How to pray for healing


/*-->*/ /*-->*/ /*-->*/ /*-->*/ /*-->*/

Lazarus, come forth!” Jesus commanded.

The Master's gentle touch is soothing. His hands bring divine comfort to the body, mind, and spirit of the sick and suffering. The same occurs by the sound of his voice. Jesus heals.

Only those truly healed know the relieving mercy of divine healing which blesses on both a natural and supernatural scale. God is not limited. Today, the followers of Jesus pray for healing in his Name.

But it's no magic show. No one can explain decisively why some are healed and some are not. This seems to depend on God's will and plan for each individual and the state of the individual before Him. The author of healing is God, himself. No man deserves the credit for this mystery, although some try to claim it. Jesus taught, faith is involved.

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them (Mark 11:22-24 NKJ).

You must have faith in God!” This line is in the imperative and should accurately be translated as a command. Faith is imperative prayer. You either believe or you don't. The result is up to God. Your faith is more a belief in God's volition and intervention than your own.

This is clearly demonstrated when Jesus raised Lazarus from the tomb after he had been dead for four days.

40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying.[a] And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”

43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” 44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go” (John 11:40-44).

Jesus expressed faith publically to those around him. Jesus prayed to his heavenly Father. He knew his Father's will. Jesus commanded the healing.

One final word, the situation was impossible. I believe God acts in impossible circumstances to show his love and mercy to mankind. Do you have an impossible situation? As a Christian, believe in God's volition and intervention. Seek his will. Pray and talk to him. Command the healing.
