Psalm 115, John 5:1-11
Reflections of the Heart:
We are made in the image of God. We bear His likeness. The promise of our total man (body, soul, and spirit) being made whole has been fulfilled in the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Receive the power and provision of His precious blood today. It belongs to all God’s children!
Glorious Father, we thank You for salvation, the greatest miracle of all. Thank You for Your eternal love and unmerited grace. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to break the power of the devil and to bring us hope, health, and healing. Thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit, to comfort and empower us. We give thanks because You are near. People everywhere will tell of Your wonderful deeds. Lord, You are good and Your unfailing love endures forever. You are great and You perform wonderful deeds. You alone are God.
Awesome Father, You brought Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and powerful arm. Jesus Christ, Your Son, turned water into wine, cleansed lepers, healed the sick, raised the dead, and fed five thousand people with two fish and five loaves of bread. Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples so that we would believe that He is the Christ, the Son of God, and have life in His Name. We believe Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever. Therefore, Father, we expect You to display Your glory in the lives of those people who are in need of healing and deliverance. With You, nothing is impossible. We expect diseases to be dissolved, broken relationships to be mended, and those who are held captive in their minds and souls to be set free. As we pray for those in need of healing and deliverance, we confess that Your power will operate through us.
List the names of people you know who need a physical healing and deliverance; encourage them to pray Scriptures of healing located at http://myprayerinstitute.wordpress.com/category/healing/)
Righteous Father, please help us to be bolder about praying for healing and deliverance. Help those in need of healing and deliverance to trust in You with all of their heart and not depend on their own understanding. Holy Spirit, please open the eyes of their understanding so that they will understand the confident hope given to those Christ has called. Remind people to look to You for help, strength, and power. Father, cause Your awesome power to be experienced throughout our church and community.
Merciful Father, forgive those people who have doubted Your Word and Your works. Forgive them for acting Godly, but denying Your power to perform healings, signs, and wonders in their lives and in the lives of others. Lord, please forgive them and restore to them the joy of Your salvation. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those people who are in need of physical healing and deliverance to forgive others and please help them to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)
Holy Spirit, help those people who are in need of physical healing and deliverance not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
Royal Lord, You are the Almighty! Only You can open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf. You cause the lame to leap like deer and those who cannot speak to sing for joy. You cause springs to gush forth in the wilderness and streams to water the wasteland. You cause the parched ground to become a pool and springs of water to satisfy the thirsty land. Great and awesome is Your Name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
