How to receive your healing!

It is God’s will for you to be healed.  I’ve put together a five part series on prayer and healing and how to receive your healing. We look at healing from the following points:

  • JESUS – Jesus is the reason we are able to receive healing and He should always be central to any teaching on healing.
  • FAITH – Without faith it is impossible to please God. We look at faith, what is faith? How do we get faith? What is the role of faith in our healing.
  • PRAYER – Have you asked for your healing? We look at the role of prayer and discuss the assumption that God is moved by our need where in fact God is not moved by our need but by our faith.
  • THE WORD OF GOD – How can we pray the will of God if we do not know the word of God? Did you know that God’s word is medicine to your flesh. We discuss scriptures where God’s promise is healing.
  • THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB – The believers atomic weapon. We discuss the blood of Jesus, it’s significance and role in our healing.
  • WHY DO SOME PEOPLE NOT GET HEALED – The reasons are a few and they are many but we answer the tough questions and we provide some comfort.
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT – Our helper and comforter, we see the role of the Holy Spirit and how He is essential in our physical healing.

How to pray?

In our previous post we looked at the privilege and opportunity of prayer; in this post we are discussing ways we can pray effectively:

  1.  We come in the Name of Jesus, our prayers are answered not because of what we do but because of what Jesus has done for us. Because of the perfect and finished work of the cross.
  2. We come with praise. Look at the Lord’s prayer in Matthew Chapter 6 verse 9 and see how Jesus starts the prayer with praise. Look at Leviticus 2:13 and 2 Cron 20:20 and see how the Israelites of old covenant were told to bring salt with all their offerings. In the same way we are to bring all our offerings with praise.
  3. Blend every prayer with thanksgiving! (Read Phil 4:6-7) Though you may find yourself praying from the deepest pits of trouble and darkness give your prayers the silver wings of thanksgiving (a) we have abundant cause for thanksgiving (b) we come as children and not as slaves (c) we watch with eager expectation for our prayers to be answered. See Romans 1 for an example of how Paul the Apostle mixed prayer with thanksgiving and praise.
  4. Come with a clear knowledge of what to ask. General prayer is blessed but asking for distinct blessings together with our general prayer is also needed. I suggest you keep a prayer journal and also find some scriptures with promises for or about what you are praying for.

The privilege and opertunity of prayer!

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us the approach God’s throne of Grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need”

It is a privilege for us to pray, for God made a way for us to pray through the Lord Jesus Christ:

  • He has set up a Mercy Seat sprinkled with the blood of Jesus (John3:16)
  • He has prepared a High Priest forever living to make intercession for us (Heb 4:14-16)
  • He has given us the Holy Spirit to help us and comfort us and to teach us to pray (Rom 8:26)
  • The Lord Himself receives our prayers (not an angel or a prophet or a saint or Mary.
  • You have been spared to pray if you are still alive.

We have a great opportunity in prayer:

  • The result of prayer is peace.
  • He will give you what you ask for in prayer (Help, provision, protection, direction, strength)
  • Ask for our plans to be blessed.
  • Ask for the will of God to be revealed to us.
