We serve an absolutely Awesome God who is familiar with our bodies and knows just how to heal us. And when we say, healing here, we're talking about divine healing. Thank God for doctors, but doctors can never do what God can do as healing prayers are made. Listen, we know it can get tough sometimes when going through a sickness like cancer or even the common cold, but rest assured that God knows where you are and He has the power to heal you of all diseases. If you know a sick person please invite them to this page. We pray for their miraculous healing in Jesus' Name.

We pray that these bible verses below will be used by the Lord to effectuate your physical healing as well as your spiritual healing. It is our prayer that any unclean spirit is cast out and like the bible verse in 3 John 1:2 reads that "you mayest prosper even as thy soul prospers".

We pray that as you read these bible verses for healing that you will find at least one scripture that really speaks to you. And as I always tell believers, meditate on the scripture.

Don't just get one of the healing bible verses and then run away quickly.

Spend time going over it, saying it over and over to yourself, and letting God speak to you through it. Because it's when He speaks to you that you get the victory over sickness. Because remember, this is how faith comes. Roman 10:17 says that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (this refers to rhema- word that He speaks into you heart).

Again, we're believing God for your physical healing as well as your spiritual healing. Remember, the greatest miracle is that of being born again - receiving eternal Life Through The Lord Jesus Christ, who came on this earth, died, rose again, and ascended to the right hand of the Father, ever making intercessions for you and me. Here are some quick questions and answers on healing:

A Personal Story of Healing

One day after service, a lady walked up to me while I was talking and politely interrupted and asked if I could lay hands on her. I was a bit stunned by it because I had never had someone come up to me and ask me to lay hands on them. Prior to this day, I've had people ask me to pray for them, but never to lay hands on them. Well, this lady did. She said that the Lord had revealed to her that she should ask me to lay hands on her for her healing.

And so I prayed and laid hands on her. She had a cold that would not go away. She would cough and cough. She said that she knew it was an attack of the enemy.

I didn't think too much about it until 3 weeks later when I was speaking with the same lady again. I asked her, "How is your throat?"

She said to me, "Prophet, from the time that you prayed for me, I haven't coughed since. I even went to my doctor and he noticed that I wasn't coughing anymore and so he asked if I was taking the medicine that he gave me. I said, no," she said. " God healed me, a prophet prayed for me."

The rest is history. All Glory to God for healing her! He is Healer!

And God will heal others through you if you would only believe in Him, Trusting in His Word.

If you would like to receive healing prayers for your healing, we minister healing on Prophecy night as the Holy Spirit leads. So, if you know a sick person that would like to receive healing from the Lord, as the Holy Spirit moves on prophecy night, you can get on the live by going to this link.

Hope you've already picked a bible verse to meditate on.
