DO YOU DESIRE TO BE HEALED?                                         James 5:14-16

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)

What should you do if you desire to be healed. The Holy Spirit gives the answer in James 5:14 “Is any sick among you? Let him call the elders of the church; and let them pray over him anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.”Prayer is the key here. Due to unbelief and unwillingness to pray, most people prefer other  channels of healing, though very costly, to the healing  that is freely provided through the stripes of Jesus.

Beloved, if you desire to be healed of those sicknesses that have defied traditional and orthodox medicine, you must be ready to pray. Moreover, the truth is that more than not, sickness is brought about by the sin of disobedience. For this reason, James 5:15 says: “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord James 5:15 say: “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.” Disobedience to simple laws of hygiene can bring about sickness. Furthermore, failure to sleep properly, or working round the clock because you want more money, is disobeying the law of Sabbath (the law that governs taking a day of rest). In addition, according to James 5:16, If you desire healing, you must confess your faults to and pray for one another. Prayers are not answered if we hold grudges against  anyone.

We refuse to forgive each other because we don’t want to admit our faults against one another. If you want to be healed, take note of what the Lord is telling you today, and the healing virtue of His stripes shall flow through your body to make you whole.

PRAYER LINE: Father, please let the stripes of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, heal all my infirmities without exception today. (O.H)


Only Jesus’ death could purchase our freedom.
