Prayer for the sick starts with knowing the will of God. He says, "I am the God that healeth thee" (Exodus 15:26). Jesus is no respecter of persons. If he ever healed anyone (and he has), he will heal you too. God knows what you need. He said, "If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23).
When you need healing in your body there are certain things you need to do including a prayer for healing. First, understand that your heavenly father loves you. When sickness attacks there are some things you need to know. Let's take a look.
Christ gave his disciples a mandate to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick (Luke 9:2). That assignment has not changed. Scripture declares, “By His stripes you were healed” (1 Peter 2:24). And there is no doubt that thousands of people are healed by the power of God every year.
I have seen many healed by the power of prayer and the Holy Spirit. You probably have too. Some were healed in an instant and others healing manifested later. For some, however, there was an all-out battle against sickness. Maybe that’s what you are facing right now. Perhaps you are one of those that didn’t get an instant healing and are in a real war against sickness. Be encouraged, the word of God will prevail for you.The spiritual battle for physical healing is real and I’m sure you’re doing everything you know to do. Here is a little healing help’s list of things for you to consider.
PRAYER FOR THE SICK HEALING HELP’S LIST
Unforgiveness could hinder your healing. Sometimes it’s hard to forgive those that really hurt you, but ask the Holy Spirit to help. You forgive others by choosing to forgive them.
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” (Mark 11:24-25)
Keep on saying it. Keep on repeating the healing promises of God over your life. This can be hard sometimes especially when you’re tired or in pain. Nevertheless, hold fast to the Word of God. Keep on saying it!
“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering (for he is faithful that promised.)”(Hebrews 10:23)
Give the Word of God some time to finish the healing work in your body.
“Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” (James 1:3-4)
GUARD THE WORD
The healing word of God is a seed sown in your heart. That’s where the word will sprout, grow, and finish its work. Christ said that Satan would try to steal that seed of healing from you. Don’t let him.
“And these are they by the wayside, where the word is sown, but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.” (Mark 4:15)
It’s easy to believe God when you’re feeling good. Feelings, however, have nothing to do with the power of the Word of God. Some feel something happening and some don’t. Ignore how you feel. Only believe.
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7)
LISTEN TO THE WORD
When you are battling for physical healing fill the atmosphere with the word of God. Turn that television and radio off, get that audio player out, and fill your room with the word of God.
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” (Psalms 19:14)
Vain imaginations will attack your mind. Don’t entertain them. When they come bind them up and cast them down.
“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
STAY IN FAITH
Spiritual battles start the minute you take God at His word. When you are in the war for physical healing there will be a battle. You can’t escape it. Nevertheless, the word of God will prevail.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11)
When you are in a spiritual battle, some people have no faith. Their doubt and unbelief can hurt you. Some of these people could be close friends or family members. We love them, but we have to be careful around them.
“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1)
These are just a few things for you to consider. Let’s pray,
Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. Thank you for healing my brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe that by your stripes we are healed. Your word declares, “He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them” (Psalms 107:20). We lay hold of your word sown in our hearts, a supernatural seed of healing that will finish its work. We bind up every unbelieving thought, and vain imaginations, and hold fast to the profession of our faith, nothing wavering. Thank you, Lord, that we will stand before men and declare the wonderful works of our God. In Jesus Name, we pray. Amen.
