Praise the Lord for His Healing Hand

And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” James 5:15

As many of you know, my back has finally said, “I give up!” I have had to give in to needed surgery which will be May 12. In response to encouraging words from a friend, I had responded to her:

            “The Lord is truly great and He whispers in the ear of those who bring His healing to others.”

I know I’m not the only one who is in pain or is broken in body and/or health. I thought I’d pass on those few words to you. If you or a loved one is facing surgery or healing, know that the Lord our God is great and He will lay His hand on you and your medical team as well. How do I know? Because … that is the nature of God. God heals and loves and forgives because … He is God. Let us pray:

“Precious Lord, lay your hands on my pain, on my brokenness, on my illness. Place your hands on top of those you have called to heal others, my medical team and my family and friends. All of who you planned for me to be, the healthy body you intended me to have, flow again from your fingers, just as they did when you first created me. Thank you, Father God for all that you have given me. Forgive me when I sometime do not accept your love and healing. I believe I can find the answers on my own without your guidance or touch. That insults you and your plan for my life. Today, I will live the life of good health and successful living that is your pleasure to give me. I thank you Lord for being pure love and I ask for the privilege of bringing your love to others. In the name of Jesus, your son who created the world with his words, I pray. Amen”
"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine.”
