Healing The Children’s Bread


Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
                                       James 5:14  NIV

Sickness is often rampant in our society.  It seems like every other day I hear of someone that I know who has been diagnosed with cancer, heart problems, high blood pressure or some other illness.   It is comforting to know that just as God forgives our sins, he also heals our sickness.   Psalm 103:2-3 says “Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits–who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.”
I wish I could understand why everyone I pray for does not instantly receive physical healing, but we cannot let that distract us from the promise of God’s Word.  If you are sick today, ask God who has all power to heal you today and have a friend join in agreement as you pray together.

Father we thank you that healing is found in the atonement and that you have in the past and still today heal your people when we are faced with sickness and disease.  Touch us today and we give you thanks for forgiving all our sins and healing all our disease.
