Healing

We are convinced by scripture and encouraged by many years of experience that God is still healing today. We have learned that no sickness is beyond God’s power. Our desire is for you to experience His healing touch in your life.

We are also aware that many people are not healed immediately, but slowly over time. We are committed to praying for those in need and will gladly continue to pray with them as needed.

Jesus cares for you. We believe He wants to bless you! Therefore, we come to you with no strings attached. All we want from you is the opportunity to pray for you.

What We Do and Don’t Do We will treat you with respect, with kindness and with God’s love. We are not doing this to preach at, argue with, or create conflict with anyone.

When we pray we do not shout at you, shake you or push you. We do not believe that God is honored or impressed by weird behavior.

God is the Healer. We invite His Holy Spirit to be present with us and to bring His peace and His power to your heart and your body.

We speak to God in normal voices, as you would to a friend. Because we understand that He is our friend. We pray with expectation of good because God is good and gives good gifts to His children.

How long or short our prayer time lasts is variable. Often people find such peace as the Holy Spirit rests on them that they relax and stay awhile. Other times prayer can be quite short, as simple as a friendly greeting. You are at all times in charge of your time.

You are not required to tell your life story. As with your time your privacy is respected. You can share what you are comfortable with and that will be plenty.

We are not doctors. We are not healers. We are learning to do what Jesus did. We are convinced that doctors are good things. They are gifts from God. Full medical attention should always be given to any ailment you have.

When you are healed go and get checked by your doctor. He/She will be glad to see you and verify your improvement.

We will be glad to meet you for prayer in any public place (church, park, wherever). If you are in a hospital or to ill too leave your home we will gladly come to you.

We don’t send junk mail.

Bible Passages on Healing Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)

This verse is called the great commission. Jesus plainly told His first disciples to make more disciples. That they were to teach the new disciples everything Jesus had taught them. So each new generation would show the heart of God and the power of God to the earth.

One of the things Jesus taught those first disciples was to minister healing to the sick. Jesus showed them healing and sent them to do healing.

He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10:1 (NIV)

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road. “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you. Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house. “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.’” Luke 10:1-9 (NIV)

It is our desire to follow Jesus in all that He taught. Therefore we actively pray for the sick with expectation of God’s power to heal. We believe God can heal every sickness, He can restore damaged nerves, strengthen crippled limbs and relieve chronic pain. We believe these things because Jesus did these things while He was here. Jesus trained His followers to do the same things. We in turn want to continue the ministry of Jesus.
