Oh Lord, I trust in You and other people that You have called to minister in the church. Just like You are using me in the faith, You have a hand on other believers as well. Therefore, I have faith that You can have any one of them to pray over me when I am in sin, sick or troubled. You are my healer and by calling these brothers and sisters in the faith to pray over me is asking You to do so in my life. You are the one really orchestrating the whole event and I am so grateful to receive prayer for healing. There are miracles happening all the times because of prayer, and this is because of my faith and the faith of others combined. Thank You Lord. I am so grateful to have people that I know I call upon when there is a need. Other resources like prescription drugs, doctors and counselors are fine and they have a role on earth, but they will never come before You again. Only when it is important that I bear my illness for a time, that I will use these other resources. And instead, I will call upon You for assistance. Through Your will, I know that others in the faith will respond to my needs, as they come up. Prayer is truly a remarkable event, God, and I just wish that more people would realize how beneficial it is for our lives. I know that You desire to heal us all, but we have to put forth the effort on our parts to get the right people in our lives, that will pray over us. Your messengers are here for our needs, we just need to trust in them as we trust in You and call upon them. Lord, I trust in Your mighty power and who You desire to work through is not my concern. Your healing power is still for us now. I have experienced this and I know that many others can as well. I love You. Amen.
James 5:14-16 (KJV)
14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Allow others to pray for you, before looking elsewhere for assistance. Healing still happens to those that believe!
When it comes to healing, James also said that we ought to be confessing our sins and what is troubling us one to another in the faith. Continue Reading
