What is the prayer of faith that will heal the sick?
The prayer of faith will heal the sick as found in James chapter 5. And there it says that you are to call the elders. And then it says that the prayer of faith shall heal the sick.
Why the elders? This is because these are people who walk with God and understand His operations to know that the job of the person praying is to get the desires or the will of God in their heart by faith (Philippians 2:13). And this 'giving' by God is what heals, not the person praying.
What we need is "The Word sent" and the evidence of "The Word sent" is faith!
Faith Prayers are God-Initiated Prayers
In other words, it's the prayers that have been wrought by the Spirit of God that will heal the sick because according to Romans 10:17, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God(sent Word or Rhema)”. God has to speak to you for you to get faith. God's Word must be sent to you for you to have faith because God accomplishes everything by the Word that He speaks.
Faith is Given To You By God As A Reward For Humility
James 4:6 He gives grace (spiritual ability/favor/gifts) to the humble...
And so, Faith is not something that you as a human being can muster up.
Faith is something that comes directly from God by His Word, that He speaks to you in your spirit. This word is creative and powerful. And when this word is applied to a situation, it is as if God Himself comes down through you to speak or lay His hand on that individual.
It will, like the Apostle Paul said be "no longer I that liveth but Christ that liveth in me."
The Prayer of Faith Works Because Faith is God Working.
Jesus said it like this: This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent (John 6:29)
Faith is God working. Faith is God doing. So if you have faith, you already know that God is working. This is why it is substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The substance and the evidence is God Himself and you discern God when you get faith. To have faith is to have God.
Hebrews 11:6 says, without faith, it is impossible to please Him. Have you ever thought about why this is the case? This is because the only One that can please God is God Himself, ie. His Word (Himself) shall not return (it was sent) unto Him void.
Faith is evidence that God sent Himself!
Faith comes by His Word that was sent (Romans 10:17) to accomplish a task (like healing). So faith is evidence that God sent Himself! That's why without faith you can not please Him. God is the only one that can please Himself and without faith, you don't have Him to do the work!
So, the prayer of faith will heal the sick because it is God's power, His Spirit, His might, that heals people through you.
To have faith is to have the evidence of God (Hebrews 11:1) so that you can with certainty follow through by love (Galatians 5:6) and see God work through you.
Let me say it like this: Faith begins when man has ended and God has interceded.
Jesus in John chapter six and verse 63, says, “The flesh profits nothing. It's the Spirit that gives life. The words that I speak, are spirit and life.”
Faith comes from the Word, so faith is Spiritual and not made by man. To Have Faith Means That God Has Begun His Work By Sending Himself To You.
So, if you want to get the Spirit of God on the scene, and the life of God on the scene, then you need the word of God that He speaks to you in your spirit for spiritual substance or the evidence of God (ie. faith).
How do you get this word, to be able to have the faith to heal the sick?
