SCRIPTURE: 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. James 5:15.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Prayer of Faith refers to prayer prayed on the behalf of someone.
It has been established that it is the perfect Will of God for His children to live in absolute health (3 John 2). Existence in perfect health is the perfect Will of God for His children.
However, people fall into ill health for different reasons. And when that happens, there are provisions made by God for people to get out of sickness.
In our study today, we shall look at the Prayer of Faith as one way to get out of sickness.
The Prayer of Faith
The Prayer of Faith refers to prayer prayed on the behalf of someone. It is the prayer prayed on your behalf by men and women of faith in times of need. For example, a brother may step into a hospital and decide to pray on the behalf of a fellow brother or someone in affliction. When that brother stands on the Word of God and offers such prayer, it is called the Prayer of Faith. It is the prayer prayed in faith on the behalf of someone in need (James 5:15).
I remember one of my classmates when I was in the University. He was a Christian brother. He had ulcer and had taken different medications but he was not healed. I went to his room one day and saw him groaning in pain. I laid my hands on him with a violent faith, offered the Prayer of Faith, anointed him with oil and commanded him to be healed. He jumped off that bed of affliction and said, “I am healed.”
This was because I stood with him and on his behalf and prayed over him the Prayer of Faith. The Prayer of Faith is a powerful weapon of healing and deliverance.
REMEMBER THIS: The Prayer of Faith refers to prayer prayed on the behalf of someone.
