Recently I had the opportunity to pray for a dear man of God who has little or no context for divine healing. He was in severe, immobilizing pain, that his medication was unable to control, when I prayed for him. A couple of days later I received this response from him:
Dear Brother, I wanted to report to you. I suffered all day Wed, then the night and then all day Thursday. Last night I found a bag of Tumeric capsules that were given to me about 8 yrs ago.
I started taking two capsules every four hours and this morning I have very very little pain. I am amazed that it’s almost gone. I truly believe that this is God’s work in my life. And I give him the praise and the glory for helping me.
I cannot disregard God‘s providence in the fact that you and I talked and then you prayed for me over the phone. I absolutely believe this is a direct result of that prayer time. Turmeric is very natural. I believe it’s no different than God using the staff of Moses. God bless you and keep praying for people. Please
While it wasn’t the instantaneous healing that I was hoping for, it was a healing that God received the glory for. God works in our lives in ways that are best for us.
Praying for the sick
All of the Renewed Covenant (New Testament) not only gives authority to God’s people but it is even a mandate to be Jesus’s ambassador. Here are just a few of a multitude of examples.
And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them. Luke 4:39
And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. Luke 5:13
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. Matthew 10:1
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Matthew 10:8
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Luke 9:1
And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. Luke 10:9
Unfortunately, there is great disparity between the numbers of people who receive healing and the number of people who keep their healing.
There are many reasons for this: Most have to do with a lack of relationship and or faith of the recipient. This is not always the case, but often. That is not intended to condemn but to encourage us to come up higher in the things of God.
