Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “ENCOURAGEMENT TO PRAY FOR YOUR HEALING AND FOR THE HEALING OF OTHERS” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…
James 5:13-16 reads: “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
How many times our Saviour, in His brief earthly ministry, heard the cry of the sick for healing! And how willingly the Saviour answered their prayers and healed the sick.
The leper said, “Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.”
The centurion at Capernaum said, “Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.”
A certain ruler worshiped Jesus saying, “My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.”
A woman diseased with an issue of blood twelve years came behind Jesus, touched the hem of His garment, and yet there was a prayer in her timid heart.
Two blind men followed Jesus, crying and saying, “Thou son of David, have mercy on us.”
The Syrophenician woman, “a woman of Canaan,” cried to Jesus saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.”
When Jesus came down from the Mount of Transfiguration, there came a certain man kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.”
As Jesus departed from Jericho once, two blind men sitting by the wayside heard that Jesus passed by and cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.” All these, and many other cases recorded in the Gospels, were prayers for healing; and Jesus answered these, every one! On a number of occasions, multitudes brought their sick people to Jesus for Him to heal them. If the personal ministry of Jesus shows anything about His tender heart, then He loves to heal the sick, He is glad to hear prayers for healing.
