So many people know the Lord's Prayer, they can say the prayer, they can sing it - but they don't know the reality of the words. I want you to read Luke 11, because Jesus did not end with the 'Amen' of the prayer, but actually continued, "Which of you has a friend and shall go to him at midnight and say, 'Friend, lend me three loaves, because a friend of mine has come and I have no food in my house to give him.'" Jesus is talking about prayer! He says, eventually, if you keep knocking, your neighbour will give you what you ask, not because you are friends, but to stop you banging on the door! I want to show you the greatest lesson in prayer: don't take no for an answer, keep on asking, God will answer you!
If I could give you a gift, I would give you this verse from Jeremiah 33:3, 'Call, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things you know not.' I want you to learn to call on God - and He will answer you! Not only will He answer, but the reason I love this verse, and the reason I pray over this verse, is because God says, when He answers, He will show you great and mighty things you don't know; He will open up heaven and show you His glory. "O God, I call unto You, You have promised that You will answer me, and when You answer me, You are going to show me powerful things, something bigger than I can ever dream about."
God will do so much more than you ask, His power is without limit. Not only will He heal your sickness, He will mend your broken heart. When God heals you, you get a new life, it's like being born again; He will fill you with a new energy and vitality. I want you to call upon Him today. Put your hand on your sickness and say this prayer with me: I believe Jesus is alive and that God is my Father. You gave me a promise that when I call upon the Name of Jesus, and by the power of His Name, I shall be healed. In the Name of Jesus, I command every curse to be broken, I command every disease to come out of my body. In the Name of Jesus I receive my healing. Thank You Jesus, Amen.
Everyone can be healed; it is not the will of God that you should suffer with sickness and disease; God's plan for you is to be healthy and joyful, that is why the Bible says of Jesus, 'He was beaten so that we can have peace, and by His stripes we are healed'. We need to apply the same level of faith to our healing as we do to our salvation. In Matthew 8 it says of Jesus that 'He healed all who came to Him': if you will come to Him today through prayer, He will heal you of every symptom and disease. Our circumstances can be changed; the Word of God cannot fail! When Jesus speaks, the miracle will happen! Jesus has power and authority in your life, power to set you free, power to heal you of every sickness, power to resurrect dead circumstances. Only believe, and the miracle will happen.
