Today we are praying for health and healing. Let’s name every individual that we know in the church who is suffering and struggling in their health, we bring them before the throne of God, Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer, and we declare that by the stripes of Jesus Christ we are healed, healing belongs to us through the cross of Jesus and the power of his name.
For those who have been sick for a long time and have given up hope, for those who have resigned themselves that things will never change or only get worse, we speak healing, restoration and health. We speak the word that Jesus spoke to the crippled woman, “Should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for 18 long years, be set free from what bound her?” (Luke 13:16)
To those who have been faithfully praying and believing for themselves or others, we speak the words of Jesus, “Shall not God avenge his own elect who cry day and night unto him? I tell you, he shall avenge them speedily” (Luke 18:7-8)
For those who are struggling with their mental health, with anxiety or depression, we pray for freedom from oppression, opening of prison doors, we proclaim liberty for captives, that they may live in and experience the freedom for which Christ set them free. We declare over their lives the words of Jesus, “I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
We pray that people will experience healing in our services, that as we worship together, the presence of God would be so strong that people are touched by the power of the Holy Spirit and experience healing, deliverance and breakthrough just by being in that presence. Let it be so, Lord!
