1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
In this life where we see so much sickness, hurdles and problems every day in every individual. It is so important that we stay united in Christ and pray confidently to the Lord. Though the times of toubles make us loose faith and confidence, we need to hold on to the faith and confidence. I saw an email on a diagonized tumor(stage 3) for one of my friend's relative. Under these circumstances we immediatly tend to lose hope and we try thinking all negatives. But being in Christ we need to stop all the negatives and we need to gain back our strength and focus and be united with Him and our fellow members and pray for the healing of the sick. It is only our confidence and trust in the Lord which can take us closer to healing.
1 John 5:14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
When praying trust in His willingness to Heal.
Mark 1:40-42 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, If you are willing, you can make me clean. Jesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. I am willing, he said. Be clean! Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.
It is a blessing that we get the oppurtunity for someone to be healed. Though we are unworthy sinners through Christ we have the oppurtunity to pray for others.
Romans 8:34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
Romans 8:26-27 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
