PRAYING FOR THE SICK(Part 1)
Welcome to Healing Nexus. 😊
As my Father in the Lord would say, “What we do most as believers is prayer and what we do least is also prayer”. Many are praying for several things today and they are not seeing results because of the wrong approach(es) being used for the kind of prayer being made.
Before I teach you about how to pray for the sick, let me firstly introduce you to the concept of Prayer. When you ask an average believer today what prayer is, the definition that will be given to you is, “Prayer is an act of communication with God”. But my dear reader, prayer is beyond only communication. Communicating with God is just like a part out of many other things we do in prayer. Let me show you some prayers in the Bible and tell me if it’s a communication with God:
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
This is 3 out of hundreds of prayers scattered across the Bible and this is the analysis of each of the prayer: A is a prayer of Declaration, B is a prayer of Claim, and C is a prayer of Thanksgiving addressed to God.
Number one mistake some believers make is that they do address all prayers to God meanwhile there are some prayers that we don’t need to bother God with.
In Praying for the Sick, you must first know that you are not addressing the prayer to God to come and heal the sick, what you do is to claim your right (Healing) as a believer and to pray a prayer of faith/laying on of hands with an unbeliever.
You’re to claim your healing as a believer praying for another believer because Jesus will not have to go to cross to be striped again and again for your sickness, he had done it once and for all. Peter said “WE WERE HEALED” not we’ll be healed or He will heal us.
1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
So what we do in the place of prayer in praying for the sick is that we CLAIM.
YOU PRAY LIKE THIS:
Thank You Lord Jesus for your finished work on the cross of Calvary, I claim the healing of XYZ in Jesus name. To the glory of God the Father in Jesus name.
Can you type, THANK YOU JESUS in the comment box if you’re blessed by this?
