A special prayer request and some thoughts.

One thing that most people do weather they are religious or not is pray at least once in thier life.

Some do it daily. Some do it only when they are in trouble, but most people if things look bleak and desperate enough will be willing to, or at least have once I. Thier life giving prayer a chance. At the very least, they took part in one or respectfully bowed thier head and remained silent during one.

In my life, I've seen many people who had nearly no faith, no interest in a higher power, no interest in church, no interest in reading a bible, but at the very least have been willing to take some part in a prayer.

There is something about going through a bad time and trail that humbles even the hardest skeptic.

 

John Lennon, perhaps one of the greatest song writers of all time certainly believed a lot of stuff that seems to go against the bible, but at one time he had claimed to be converted to christ after seen a movie about Jesus's life according to one article. In one of his later solo hits, he said the line "The more is see, the less I know for sure" This is defenatly a position of faith since faith is seeing without knowing!" 

Its pride, arrogance and a know it all attitude that usually prevents a person from believing in something higher.

However when things get desperate enough, most people are willing to take a chance on praying. Sometimes it's all we have. Sometimes...many times...its all we need.

At the time of this writing, which I didnt know until as I was writing this, is the nation day of prayer. The timing would seem to be more than coincidence. Most skeptics would disagree. Most belivers wouldnt. But consider this...I've been on a prayer crusade for specific things. Healing in particular.

The bible says to pray in secret and not to pray in a way where you are just reciting some prewritten words.

Jesus said that hypocritical religious people like to boast with thier prayers publicly to show how good they are. However when we pray honestly and in secret and make our prayer personal, so God who sees us in private will reward us openly.

Certainly pray can be in a group, but the point is to make it honestly and humbly. When done for show, it is in vain

Fasting is the same way. At one point the disciples of Jesus could not perform a miracle, and Jesus said "You lack a kind of faith that comes only by prayer and fasting!"

Fasting weakens our flesh so our spirit can take priority. Jesus didnt perform miricals in the bible until he fasted 40 day.

I cannot say how long a person must fast and pray for a miracle but one thing I know is that God can and wants to heal and make you whole in mind, spirit, and body!

Sometimes however, God refuses to hear prayers. If you are in a willfully sinful lifestyle then its important to know that sin separates us from God. God wants to love you and know you and forgive you, but belive must come first.

Sometimes though, God has a differnt plan and we may not see healing right away. Paul, the disciples and even the Lord Jesus Christ, couldn't always get the answer they sought from God the father in all cases.

God is not your personal genie!

Sometime God says that you are already healed...but that may only come in the form of your glorified heavenly bodies. Time doesnt apply to God...he invented it!

Nevertheless, God doesnt want us to give up on our miracle. The bible says that we should speak things that arnt as if they are! The point is God wants to reward those who show thier faith and boldness. If God is powerful, and he is in us, then we should see ourselves as powerful too...(not us, but God through us)

Notice the bible says through Jesus's stripes we WERE healed...past tense. Gods already done the work...we just have to revive and belive it will come...not may but WILL!!!

Many also prayed for thier sick friends and family. Perhaps YOU are sick but dont have much faith, but many times a loved one will intersceed for you and THEIR faith will heal you!

In one of Jesus's greatest miracles, he healed an ear of an enemy Roman soldier that had his ear amputated by Peter. The solider that came to arrest Jesus, was healed! He didnt ask for it, or deserve it, but God had mercy on even the people that sent his son to a brutal death on the cross! How much more will he be willing to help you!?

At this time if you would, pray with me and for me as well friends. It doesn't take much, just talk to God!

Let's pray for healing...

LORD, I PRAY THAT EVERYONE THAT READ THIS PRAYER AND PRAYS ALONG WILL BE BLESSED! I ASK ANYONE IN HEAVEN OR EARTH THAT IS LISTENING WEATHER SAINTS OR ANGELS, THAT YOU ALL WILL BRING THIS PRAYER THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO GOD OUR KING AND HEAVELY FATHER. LORD YOU HAVE GIVING US ALL THINGS THROUGH YOUR SON CHRIST JESUS AND TOLD US TO BOLDY ASK AND WE SHALL RECEIVE! I ASK LORD THAT YOU BRING HEALING FOR SPECIAL NEED I AM FOCUSING ON. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS. I ASK FOR YOUR WILL ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN, AND SINCE THIER IS NO PAIN IN HEAVEN, IT IS YOUR WILL FOR NO PIAN HERE AS WELL. PLEASE FATHER GRANT ME THESE REQUESTS! I PRAY THOSE WHO READ THIS WILL NOT STOP PRAYING OR GIVE UP UNTIL THEY HAVE EVERY NEED MET! I ALSO ASK FATHER FOR HEALING OR ANY OTHER NEED OF THE READER. BLESS THEM AND KEEP THEM CLOSE AND I THANK YOU. IN JESUS NAME I PRAY AMEN!
