Scripture Reading: 3 John 1:2
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Father God, we worship you. You are the God of our victory, Jehovah Nisi. We worship you and praise you today.
Sickness, whether physical or spiritual, is not God’s plan for you. God has a plan to heal you and His healing plan is in His Word. Sometimes sickness is caused by our own carelessness. Miriam got sick because she was murmuring against Moses, Numbers 12. Some of us are sick because we are murmuring against God and the people of God. May God deliver us from that in the name of Jesus. Others are sick because they have not obeyed God. I pray for the grace of instant repentance in the name of Jesus. Many are ill because of depression.
Father God Almighty, make cheerfulness our portion in Jesus’ name.
Another cause of sickness is the enemy’s stronghold. A stronghold manifests in persistent attacks against our health, peace, prosperity, and progress. It operates in the lives of those who do not fully know their rights or cannot do warfare. I pray that we would use the Word of God to engage effectively in warfare and that we would identify the strongholds in our lives.
Indications that strongholds are operating in our lives are that we have recurrent tragedies and sickness, inexplicable barrenness, marital complications, recurring terrifying nightmares and dreams, or whatever else is not of God that is recurring in our lives.
Let us pray today that whatever our heavenly Father has not placed in our lives be uprooted in the name of Jesus. Pray the Word of God that evil must bow before good in our lives, in the name of Jesus. It is time to fight in spiritual warfare using the weapons God has given us, especially the sword of the Spirit: the Word of God.
Let us pray now to receive our healing; for healing power belongs to God. It was possessed by Jesus and given to the body of Christ, first to the apostles and then to all believers. Pray that God will bless us with healing to eliminate all diseases manifesting in our lives because they are not of God. May God give us the grace to touch the hem of His garment and receive healing.
If you desire to be healed but you have not given your life to Jesus, pray, “Dear Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you. I confess and forsake my sins. Cleanse me from my sins. Write my name in the book of life and give me victory spiritually and physically, circumstantially and financially in Jesus’ name.” Amen.
Heavenly Father, heal your children from every kind of sickness: those induced by our carelessness and those induced by the enemy. Heal every complicated health hazard, Lord.
Let your Holy Spirit take control of every situation that has troubled us. We roll all our worries onto you in the name of Jesus. Take control and have pre-eminence in Jesus’ name.
