Healing Through Prayer
In the Discipleship Course Part One, we discuss a topic about healing. Specifically, healing through repentance. It’s a concept that honestly I hadn’t thought much of our considered prior to the discipleship class. What I found interesting was the word “healing” found in this other popular verse of Scripture in the Book of James. We often hear quoted, “The prayers of the righteous availeth much.” Meaning, the prayers of the righteous are powerful (and I believe that’s because we are praying to the One who is all-powerful).
But let’s look closer at the first part of the Scripture. “Confess our sins,” it says, which is part of repentance and does tie into the lessons about repentance in the class. Now look at the next part:
Pray for each other so that you may be healed.
So wow. There is also healing through prayer.
Healing through Repenance.
Healing through Prayer.
Truly, our Abba is Yahuah Rophie, the One who heals. He has provided so many avenues for us to get the healing we need.
But it’s a process.
The same way there is a process of repentance, there is a process of healing.
Let’s do the work it takes to get the healing we need, for ourselves and our loved ones whom need us to be whole and healed. It’s Abba’s will for us to be healed.
Grace & shalom!
As we intercede for one another, healing can take place. We are also encouraged to pray for one another in Ephesians 6. That passage speaks about putting on the Full Armor daily. And Prayer is part of the Armor. Yes, it’s not just the helmet of salvation, breastplate, belt, shoes, shield, and sword. Immediately after the admonishment to “take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of Elohim,” it says, continuing in verse 18: “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” It’s part of the daily battle (prayer is) and it’s part of healing.
