iPray Fridays: Jehovah Rapha

Share
He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."

Exodus 15:26

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

Malachi 4:2

/heal·ing/ [hee-ling]:  growing sound; getting well; mending. (Dictionary.com)

I love the sound of that..growing sound, getting well, mending. This is God's desire for us that we be made well. I'm sure each and every one of us knows someone who could do with God's healing touch today. Today we make a decision to stand in the gap for them. If you don't you can pray for me (my bank account needs healing...lol!). When Jesus came to earth, He was moved with compassion..I can't recount how many times He said 'Rise up and walk' or 'Be healed' or 'Be opened'. Today we carry the power of the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead within us so we too cry out and say 'Rise up and walk', 'Be healed' and 'Be opened'.
 
Today I want us to go deeper, for some of us we need healing on the inside..there is nothing physical about our ailment but we still need that touch from God. He is willing and able..there is nothing He cannot do. No, I don't know why sometimes we pray and it seems like there is no answer. Only God knows that...I will still pray anyway. I remember asking my mum why Elisha died from an illness and yet his dry bones raised a man from the dead. Only God knows that...I will still pray anyway.
 
iPray...will you?
 
Remain blessed and highly favoured. Our God still answers prayer.
 
N.B Feel free to use the comments to write down your prayers, anonymously if you prefer in case you want to mention cases by name. God sees your heart and He knows who and what you are praying about. Remember to thank Him in advance and share your testimonies too.
 
Another important point that just came to me...there is a difference between health and healing. To the man by the pool, Jesus said after his healing '...Go and sin no more'...for some of us its 'Go and exercise more' or 'Go and change your diet' or 'Go and rest a little'...we are spirits that live in bodies. Our spirits are eternal, our bodies are not. Ask God for the grace to take the very best care of your body that you can. It is well.

Father,

I commit your child into your hands, her father just had a stroke and she is broken. But you're the one with healing on Your wings and NOTHING is impossible with you.

I also commit the dream I had last night into your hands, I reject that sickness upon Your son. He will have no such diagnosis in Jesus Name. The diseases of the Egyptians will not be his portion, in Jesus' Name. Amen.

The best part of this post for me was when you said "we carry that same power of healing that Jesus carried around" (paraphrased), then what are we waiting for? Everywhere we go, we need to raise the dead and heal the sick...because according to my knowledge of God's word, there's nothing impossible with God.

Dear Father

Thank you for today and for an opportunity to join my brothers and sisters to pray. Thank you Lord because you have the power to do all things. I don't know why there is sickness in the world but you did tell us that though we would face tribulations and trials..you have overcome the world.
I commit Baby O before your throne of grace, the doctors say she can't come home until she takes 8 bottles. Father make her strong, keep her healthy. We believe and trust you that she will come home at the end of this month in Jesus name. Maybe she took us by surprise but her arrival didn't take you by surprise.
Father thank you for Baby M, hmm chemotherapy on a 2 month old..this is the first I've heard of it. Lord we trust you for a miracle. Keep her family strong O Lord.
Thank you for those I can't remember at present. Jehovah Rapha..let your healing power flow in Jesus name. By your stripes we are healed. Thank you Lord.

Indomitable God of the Universe, the only Living One, the God of Isreal - I bless your name and worship you. You alone are holy, good, faithful and true. Holyspirit, you said unto the woman with the issue of blood: "Woman Thou art loosed", you said unto the blind man: "Your faith has made you whole" You are in the business of healing - stopping the issue of blood and returning sight unto your children even unto this day. You are the God who takes ordinary people and revelas your extraordinary ways through them - the show off God, the one who is zealous and Jealous for His people. With that heavenly father, I want to lift up my two sisters in to your names - Lord you have let our paths cross by your bond and fellowship. Even as they continue to look upon your cross for divine healing, compassion and restoration, i plead and ask for direction. I beg of you Heavenly Lord that you please let them see that you are bigger than their circumstance, theat they eyes will remain fixated on you and you alone. That as you reveal your healing plan and power before them, their physical ailments will be healed from the inside-out. Give them the strength to continue growing in you, knowing you, loving you, having that sweet beautiful fellowship with you. Be thou exalted my Lord and my God in all the earth. Thank you Father, Thank you Jesus because I believe and trust that you have answered our prayers. In Jesus Name - Amen.

Lord I thank you for my father's life. I know the enemy has tried so many times to attack his health and because of You we have always been victorious. I come against high blood pressure and hypertension. You are Jehovah Shalom, God who is our peace and I trust and believe you for a breakthrough in Jesus name. Daddy I also pray for the 'men' that you touch them where only you can touch them.

I ask for healing on the inside, there is no drug that can be prescribed for a broken heart just the Love of God that can put all the pieces back together. Father I bless and magnify your name. Amen
