JAMES 5:15 AMP: and the prayer of faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
Today, we are called to offer our prayers to God in faith. James called it, THE PRAYER OF FAITH. What it simply means is that when you pray, believe that what you are saying will be granted to you. It’s not a prayer of uncertainty. Like, oh lord if you will, or want, please heal me or heal him. Rather a prayer of faith will say You are healed in Jesus Name because Jesus paid for your healing by his stripes. 1 Peter 2:24. A prayer of uncertainty will say, Oh Lord, please bless me, bless him and so on. But a prayer of faith will say “I am blessed” because the Bible says that God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings… Ephesians 1:3
This demonstrates our trust and faith in God and his words. Hence, responding positively to whatever the word says. And the Bible says that such a prayer done in faith will heal the sick, and grant you that which you earnestly seek from the lord. For the Lord himself said, those who come to him must first believe that He is and a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6.
‘…Asking him to do what he says he has done for you is simply saying you don’t believe what he said he did for you.’
From this day, I encourage you to be conscious of what you say to God in prayer. Mean what you say. Have confidence that it will be done to you and not repeating words endlessly hoping God will hear you and answer you. I call you blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: I am blessed. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, I believe that you are and has answered all my prayers. Glory be to your name. In Jesus Name. Amen.
