There is a lot said about healing prayers as some have prayed for a long time but they have not yet received their healing. One thing we stand for is that our God is the healer as we saw many that were healed when they came face to face with Jesus.
“And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up” (James 5:15). The prayer of faith is simply the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God which makes God to hear and answer our prayers.
The bible has a popular story of a woman with the issue of blood that got healed instantly when she touched the border of His garment. Jesus did not touch the woman but she touched Him. This tells us that we are also responsible of taking that step to touch Him and receive our healing.
Many think that prayers that touch God have to be prayed on top of their voice which is not true at all. It is the connection that exist just us it was with the woman that is why Jesus had to ask “who touched me?” There were many that were touching Him at that time to an extent that His disciples wondered why He could ask such a question when He knew there were many people; but there was none who had the same type of faith in the same way that this woman did.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, and you do not feel anything when you start praying, probably it is time to accept Jesus Christ again because many think they are saved when in true sense they are not. Some could be indeed saved but the enemy is stealing from them that they cannot stay still and concentrate in prayer. They start praying, in a minute they start thinking about their husband and so on yet they are in the middle of prayer. Why then are you expecting to receive what you are praying for when you are telling God that He is not your priority, you have so many things that comes first before God?
When the bible tells us to not worship any other god because He is a jealousy God, he is not only talking about false gods and idols. He knew that we tend to create our own little gods that we worship to an extent that god comes on position ten. I was there too, my children used to be my little gods, but when I got saved, it changed automatically that God is my number one and everything else follows.
Healing is a free gift that has been given to us and do not let the enemy continue to steal from you. Just try to focus in prayer without thinking anything else but God alone just like the woman with the issue of blood did. It is God’s will that His children are healed and flourishing in all areas of their lives.
“My Son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body” (Proverbs 4:20-22).
