Healing Prayer … getting The Word In | 31 Days: 16


Rx - The Word of God

Rx – The Word of God

It’s October 16th and we have 16 days left in this challenge of 31 Days of Writing.

Yesterday I rededicated my focus on God and getting His healing Word in. Thinking about it more, I wanted to the next 16 days to be  full of scriptural healing prayers. Surrendering my doubts and fears to God and filling up on His healing words.

So I went about researching His healing bible verses and found this, on Belief Net.com: Healing Bible Verses. Researching bible verses has become easier with Google, for sure! But don’t forget, it is important to read before and after any scripture to receive full understanding. Full understanding of what God is saying is pertinent. =)

 

Lord,

I am Your child, I am and will continue to be attentive to Your words;
    to Your sayings I will incline my ear.
I will not allow them to  escape from my sight;
    I will keep them in the midst of my heart.
 For they are life to those of us who find them
    and healing to our entire body.
 With all vigilance, I will keep my heart,
    for from it comes the source of life. Amen

Proverbs 4:19-23

This is my beginning prayer, today.  I will continue to pray scripture, today, because if there’s anything I learned on this walk with my Lord it is that praying His Word never fails. These words are His will … they are His promises, unsullied by my thoughts or ideas or interpretations. It is the Word He inspired in Solomon {who is said to have written most of the Book of Proverbs} to share with us. As most know Proverbs are a guide book, depicting clearly the right and wrong ways to live this life. There is incredible guidance in this book.

I pray that these coming 16 prayers might get into your heart for healing. No matter what that healing is … Spirit {Heart}, Mind {Thought and Reasoning} or Body {Physical}.

Tell me, if you would, what healing do you need prayer for today … tomorrow? Let me know in the comments and I will share and pray healing prayers with you, for you, because I believe when we intercede for others our own healing is manifest.

I saw this quote recently, author unknown.

All Christians are called to prayer, for intercession.

Won’t you allow me to pray for you today. =)

Thank You for Reading. Andrea

Sweet Sleep … Ahh to rest.


31 days: 9

Sleep

Sleep

Insomnia

It’s what I dealt with last night. It’s been many a night in the last year that as the house sleeps quietly my mind runs wild with thoughts shouting to be attended to. And then then next day is shrouded in fog until just about now … hours past noon.

Sleep is vital to good health, and this ladies blood pressure issues; so the docs say.

Last night there were no terrible thoughts or fears flooding me. Just the stress of what needs completing … work I need to attend to and have no desire to put my hand to. I’ve been taking something light to sleep for the last month and every now and again it just doesn’t work. It’s light, like I said, so if I push past that urge to close my eyes I can defeat it’s efforts. Which, btw, I didn’t do last night; like I said sometimes it just doesn’t work.

But prayer does! 😉 It does indeed. Even in the wee hours of the morning.

Prayer

Prayer

And I chose prayer, as late as it was. I lifted my eyes and asked for sleep, I sought after God, who watches over my slumber … it came, late as it was, sleep came. Ask and you will receive. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

 

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

Sleep deprivation is linked to all kinds of ailments: colds, heart disease and high blood pressure, and even obesity. Funny, for me I’ve battled insomnia off and on all of my life and the doctors have named the heart issues and the obesity is obvious.

Everyone in my family just describes themselves as night owls or nocturnal. Me, the doctors have reported what they’ve reported and I do what I need to do to stay well and then rely wholly on God’s promises of complete health.

Sometimes I have a hard time wrapping my human thought around the fact of my healing. Sometimes my human self just wants what it wants and my self control is lax. Some days I do well … Oh, I long to truly understand the concept of  “made in His image”.

Healing is a comprehensive process of diet, rest and correct living. I find, though, that the dietary industry doesn’t put all of those together. If stress is why I’m awake when I should be sleeping then diet and exercise are not the complete path to health. I MUST, for me, treat my spirit as well.

I don’t think anyone gets well without treating all three areas of  the self.

Spirit.Mind.Body.

We walk in that complete healing when we take care of our complete self.

Feed the Spirit with  Word of God.Feed the Mind with good things. Feed and rest the Body with a healthy lifestyle.

Proverbs 3:7-8

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.

Complete healing is ours. However, we must avoid those things which we know to be unhealthy for us. We must remain good stewards of our body, mind and spirit.

I think I may have begun to ramble in this, I apologize for that my faithful friends. =) Thanks for reading.

He Is Present to Heal


Welcome to my 31 Day Journey to Healing in Five Minutes of free writing.

 

Go …

 

“The power of the Lord is present to heal you.” Luke 5:17

Isn’t that just an amazing comfort? It certainly is for me.

Somewhere someone wrote several paraphrases of healing verse that just grabbed my heart. It was in one of my devotionals I get in my e-mail, I believe Christine Caine’s. Anyway they way she listed them and the way they sounded together simply sung to me at a moment that I desperately needed them. I go to them often on a page that I keep for my personal prayer friends to pray for The Hubs and his battle with lung cancer.

O’ Lord this man.
We declare and decree the Word of God.
“Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world.”
“By His stripes you are healed.”
“No weapon formed against you shall prosper.”
“You shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord.”
“Don’t forget the benefits of God. He heals all our diseases.”
“The Lord will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds.”
“Affliction will not rise up a second time.”
“The power of the Lord is present to heal you.”

And that prayer team of friends and loved ones work! The Hubs is doing fine; just off the last 6 week regime that actually took 6 months! Just had the CAT scan to determine the success today … report appointment is scheduled for next Monday.

The power of God was on Jesus to heal them!

The story in Luke 15 goes on to tell the story of the paralytic’s friends going and lowering him down through a hole in the roof to get their friend to Jesus! Think about that. Their faith was so strong that Jesus could and would heal their friend (it doesn’t say anything about the paralytic’s faith) that they risked vandalizing someone’s home to get him right in the middle of the action where Jesus was!

Well that’s what my Facebook page for The Hubs is … it’s my hole in the roof to get him right there into the throne room of God, where the healing action is strongest. And our friends are right there with me keeping the Hubs upfront in God’s view!

The power of God is always there to heal! All we must do is believe. That’s what the #1 rule of Grace, Faith, of Christianity … Just Believe.

And we believe; us, the friends of The Hubs. And so far we have not be disappointed! Amen

Stop!
