How to Pray for healing

How to Release God’s Healing Power ON OTHERS  Through your Prayer

(2 Chr 6:19 KJV)  Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:  (Psa 102:17 KJV)  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer
(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
(Mat 10:8 KJV)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Some of the  distorted preachers, even Pentecostals do too often do teach that any  Christian should not be sick at all, and that we can always immediately claim our sickness healing by faith and God will always heal us. They seem too easily to forget that  a temporary human sickness can temporary serve God’s purposes. But also yet the Fundamentals Evangelicals too now also go overboard denying that healing tend to exist today as well.
 A too common Pentecostal Word Faith teaching is that it is solely, always  your own personal fault for being sick. This false teaching can be found in Hinduism as well.   They teach that it is because of your own lack of faith and/or knowledge, unconfessed sins if you are sick or poor.   This unloving, cruel and unbiblical teaching does not come from God but from Satan who distorted God’s basic truths on healing. Can you imagine the gall of anyone, even a false elder, pastor, unlovingly trying to tell a person to their face that the reason their daughter sick is because of their lack of faith?  or that God is punishing them of their own sin? Can you imagine the cruelty in telling a person bound to a wheelchair that if they had enough “faith” they would  surely  “Rise and be healed?” But what does the Bible say about it, teach.
Most of the problem with the clear Christian teaching discrepancies on Healing and Sickness is due firstly to the real personal ignorance of what the Bible teaches even about Healing. Most Christian people wrongfully rely mainly on some famous preacher who is pro or con to healing and Not on God and his Word firstly. Many people have their mind made up beforehand anyway and are not honestly open to the subjects and they thus tend use out of context bible verses, the preachers quotations to try to suit, substantiate their own pet views.. they need to read these verses again..
Now in the Old Testament King David said this about his own afflictions: “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees…I know, O Lord, that your laws are righteous, and in faithfulness you have afflicted me,” Psalm 119:71, 75.  The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death,” Psalm 118:18.  “Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word,” Psalm 119:67.
The lying bad Preachers here too try to tell you this affliction was a sickness of David .Yet we have no mention at all in the Bible that these afflictions were any specific sickness, rather David clearly was persecuted by his son, and others.. and all as a direct result of his adulterous sin with Bathsheba  and the murder by David of her husband now as well. What the preachers too do not know the Bible well enough to share the truth? it sure seems so.
Let us all refer also to the case of Job and his sickness.. who said “ Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD…Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity?  Curse God, and die.  But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh.  What?  Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil (Calamity)?  In all this did not Job sin with his lips…Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him,” Job 1:21, 2:9-10, 13:15.
Clearly note that Job was eventually healed and lived to an old age.. this is undeniable too. (Job 42:10 KJV)  And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
(Job 42:11 KJV)  Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
(Job 42:12 KJV)  So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
(Job 42:16 KJV)  After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.17 So Job died, being old and full of days.
Some people are sick due to their own fault.. but not all persons. We need spiritual discernment on how to deal with the sick..
(1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
(1 Cor 11:29 KJV)  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.31   For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
(James 5:14 KJV)  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.
(Mat 8:7 KJV)  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

 One thing I do often hear frome people is that God is dead, he also does not heal, but where do the same people go to when one of their loved one gets sick and the doctors cannot heal them? which happens too often in real life to many people too, well? they come to me, a pastor, to pray for them to be healed. Reality

Baptists, Brethren too, are known for their hatred and slander of of penteostals and faith healers too.. but this hatred did , does not come from God for sure.. some so called Pentecostals are still wolves in sheep clothing, they are still dispensationalists too, for often have switched to the Pentecostals churches for wrong reasons now too. 

Excuse me but this  typical slanderous fundamental Baptist Brethren bullying bashing approach that I have heard the last 50 years and it is unacceptable talking about the mostly emotional  Pentecostal.. in truth the Pentecostal accusers themselves are the one lacking the emotion of real love firstly.    


>>and it is a lie  that there has never been a single proven miracle healing or fulfilled prophecy in a Pentecostal church,
that is real is rubbish.. My own daughter was healed, and the doctors in my church, and at the Montreal children Hospital admitted it, but they had added the absurd statement she healed herself miraculously.. healed herself.. it can’t be done!!

  1. Someone asked the Question but does Jesus heal today?

    Does Jesus heal today? and why Not? is there anything too hard for God?

    There was a bonafide healing in my own daughter’s life at the age of 6 months confirmed by medical doctors at the Montreal Children’s Hospital..

    The 3 doctors reaction .. she healed herself, we have no explanation for it.

    Another doctor’s reaction? he got saved, to him it was undeniable that a miracle had occurred..

    Other people’s reactions?

    My Boss said you were luck..

    My mother in law said if miracles were genuine why did God not heal my sister? Good Question ask God..

    Many people were uspet by the healing even in the local church.. it made them feel uncomfortable for some reason..

    after all if God can do miracles then he can see what they are daily doing as well..

    what makes me laugh is when clearly dumb people do say that the devil can do miracles today but not God!! How absurd!

    Now that was just one of many mircales I have next wittnessed in real life

    How to Release God’s Healing Power ON OTHERS Through your Prayer

    Thank you for addressing the need for balance. Unbelief in healing is one thing, but to teach against it is false teaching. Prayerlessness and the fear that anything supernatural could possibly be from the enemy as well as from God, hinders us greatly. I pray that our focus would be on Christ and what He said.

  3. Is 61:1 THE SPIRIT of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed {and} qualified me to preach the Gospel {of} good tidings to the meek, the poor, {and} afflicted; He has sent me to bind up {and} heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison {and} of the eyes to those who are bound, Is 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, Is 61:3 To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion–to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, {and} failing spirit–that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Is 61:4 And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.

    Is 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. Is 61:11 For as [surely as] the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so [surely] the Lord God will cause rightness {and} justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations [through the self-fulfilling power of His word].

    Is 62:11 Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the Daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes [in the person of the Lord]; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work {and} recompense before Him. Is 62:12 And they shall call them the Holy People, the Redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought Out, a City Not Forsaken.

    God through Jesus Christ has promised to deliver us from all of sickness, sadness, sorrows, troubles even today, and we can stand on many such promises in his Word, the Bible

    Many professing Christian persons still do have concerns such as “Teach me how to pray for healing?” or ” I Prayed for healing but nothing happened yet?”

    It is firstly important to remember that the right of praying for healing in Jesus name by faith in God’s word, his written promise to us is the Children’s bread only, meaning this right belongs to all real genuine Christians, not to secular or still ungodly persons basically. Secondly if you prayed for healing, and nothing happen first give it some time, secondly pray again till you do next get the healing, even pray to find out why the healing has not happened..

    Now I know very specifically that I with 2 other church elders had prayed in a specific period for 28 people to be healed, and yet next only half were undeniably healing, but God there at the same time had revealed simultaneously to all three of us the same reasons, obstacles as to why the other persons were still not healed, including their unconfessed major sins, personal inadequacies that had to be dealt with, and in some of those cases next we prayed again for some of the same persons and they were healed or delivered from their bondage, sicknesses.

    If you are a false teacher, a false prophet, and there are much too many of them in the Christian, secular environment, do not basically expect God firstly and rightfully to hear your prayers.. even for healing. You rather need first to get right with God yourself.

    Thanks for this great post!
    I also found this to be a good resource for Prayer Requests

  5. And here I also what I find really strange, I tend to post the identical same posts in response on at least 3 or 4 sites, since the same topics tend to be popular discussion on other professing Christian sites now too.. and yet I tend to even get totally opposite response to the same messages, some positive, approving, supportive, other condemning, critical, yes to the same post. As I see it next the Reponses tend to be more reflective of the spiritual nature of the responders

    (Mark 8:38 KJV) Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

    (Rom 1:16 KJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    (2 Tim 1:8 KJV) Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

  1. Sickness & healings, Revivals « Missing the point?
  2. Praying for Healing « Missing the point?
  3. Fret not! « Focus on the Family
