I believe their prayer did not produce significant results
I saw their cancers, kidney problems, heart conditions, etc were advancing from mild conditions to more devastated situations.
That ignites me to write this post: how to get effective prayer for healing.
What is prayer?
Prayer is talking to God just like the child talks to his father.
What are the indicators that your prayer is ineffective?
- After you’ve done the prayer,
- you still have no peace inside;
- you are still burdened with heavy feeling;
- you are not sure your prayer reaching God or not;
- you are afraid you did not pray long enough;
- you are afraid you did not use the right word;
- you are worthy for God favor; or
- you will need to pray the same problem again.
To have an effective prayer, you must go throughout three moments:
Foundation, Action, and Waiting moments.
Foundation moment: the healing is yours
You must start out with strong conviction that “healing is yours already”.
If you go into prayer without that, the result will be disappointed.
It is better not to pray until you have that deep inside your heart.
That conviction is based upon the finish work of Jesus.
You can confirm with the verses:
“By His stripes we were healed.” – Isaiah 53:5
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health,
just as your soul prospers.”- 3 John 2
Action moment: ASK
Prayer should be very simple; we make it so complicated.
You don’t need to pray with long sentences, crying, or kneeling on the floor long time.
It is as simple as “ASK”.
“..You do not have because you do not ask” – James 4:2b
God regards the followings as power as Jesus Prayer to Him:
“God, help me.” or
“God, heal me.”
One of the definitions of “ask” is to demand for the things that are yours.
“Ask” in prayer is similar to that you hand in your withdrawal slip to the
bank for your money in the bank.
Sometimes, we do “ask’ but we have no result from our prayers.
“.. Ask but amiss” – James 4:3a
What are the right altitudes to ask?
Must ask in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus which can break any chain or bondage from Satan.
“That at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those in heaven,
and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.”- Phil 2:10
Must ask boldly with strong conviction or believe
Come to God to ask as boldly with strong faith as if the child
Come to ask his daddy for the gift was promised to him.
“Whatever things you ask when you pray,
believe that your receive them,
and you will have them.” – Mark 11:24
Must ask humbly without begging
How to ask humbly before the Lord, example can be found in
“ ….We have no power
….. Nor do we know what to do
…… but our eyes are upon You” – 2 Chron 20:12
Must ask with sincere and focus
You must devote time (may be 15 min) to seek His face completely without distraction from worrying or responsibility of daily life. Did you? Can you?
Must ask with end of “Amen”
Amen means “Father, I am presenting to you all the things Jesus had done on the cross”
No prayer will be completed with this step.
Praise and thanks Him for releasing the favor for at least 10 min before you will go back to other daily activities.
Waiting moment: Worship and Praise
It is the most critical period to get the answers for your prayers.
Everybody doesn’t like to wait.
You want to get the answer right away.
But God has His own timing that you can’t control.
It may take few days, few weeks, or few years.
God may use this period to test your faithfulness.
Instead of trying to control God timing, you do the following things correctly, healing is for sure.
Worship and Praise daily
Worship Him as what He is.
He is your redeemer, your healer, your provider, etc.
Because you declare Him as your healer, He will come to you as the biggest healer in the world.
It is also a good idea to give thanks to Him for the things He did and the releasing the healing favor to you.
Only worship, praise, and faith can move God hands.
Praise can be as simple as this:
“Praise the Lord, for His Mercy endures forever.” – 2 Chron 20:21
Decree the verses and get angels involved
Use Google to find some more Bible verses relating to healing.
Decree and declare over your body. In so doing, you are inviting angels to act on your behalf.
Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Who excel in strength, who do His word,
Heeding the voice of His word. – Psalm 103: 20
For He shall give his angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways – Psalm 91:11
Don’t hide your sin – this is one of two things God hates
God understands that we can’t avoid to sin because of our human nature.
But He will not tolerate you to hide the sins.
Confess your sins openly, ask and receive forgiveness.
Let Jesus blood to wash you clean.
Let His power to heal the wounds of you soul.
Um-forgiveness – this is the second things God hates
Bible indicates that um-forgiveness can cause sickness in people as I presented in my previous post (Matt18:24-34).
Do you know forgiveness hold the key for your healing from cancer heart disease, kidney disease, etc?
Healing will be granted if you forgive all the people that offended you.
“All” means “all”; you can’t leave out one and expect to be healed.
When doubt comes, use your power that God anoints you.
While you are waiting for the healing, doubt will set in shortly.
This the time to use your anointed power to put the doubt into the pits.
The power are your mouth (Mark11:23), name of Jesus, and the granted ability to bind and losing (Matt 18:18).
When pain of stomach comes, what should you do?
You will touch the area with one hand.
You declare, “I bind you (pain and illness) with the name of Jesus.
I cast you out from my body and nail you onto the cross.
I command in Jesus name you will never come back to me”
You continue declare, “Thank you Jesus hear me and heal me.”
Spend time alone with the Lord daily
During this quality time, you will allow no distraction.
Only in this solitude, God can down load His revelation to you.
No prayer will be successful without personal relationship with the Lord.
This requires you to spend time with the Lord, meditate on His words, and allow God to involve in your life.
Is it worth the time and effort?
Yes, you will be amazed how your life become because of His divine appointments and answers to your prayers.
