Roslyn and I love to pray for others. It's a pleasure for us to agree with people about their individual requests. When I reviewed some of the recent prayer requests from friends, family, and associates, I realized that many of them had a common theme.
Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases...
- James 5:13-15 (MSG)
13-15 Are you hurting? Pray. Do you feel great? Sing. Are you sick? Call the church leaders together to pray and anoint you with oil in the name of the Master. Believing-prayer will heal you, and Jesus will put you on your feet. And if you’ve sinned, you’ll be forgiven—healed inside and out.
- Isaiah 53:5
- Matthew 9:22
- Acts 4:10
10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.
