O Jesus heal the sick and the weak

O Jesus, I confess that you the world’s Saviour,
Pardon me for all my bad behaviour.
Give me the grace as I pray,
And let me not go astray.

O Jesus, heal the sick and the weak,
Save them from situations bleak.
They need your healing and grace,
Hide not from us your Holy Face.

O Jesus, heal the sick and suffering,
For I believe in your Divine offering.
You gave for us Your life on the Cross,
That we be saved from a fate that is gross.

O Jesus, I know that you will heal,
For the Father loves us with full zeal.
Have mercy for those I have come to you to pray,
Give them healing before they despair and fray.

O Jesus, you raised the people from the dead,
And you have crushed down the Serpent’s head.
Work your grace for the sick and weak,
That they with gratitude your praises speak.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6)

I pray to Christ for your healing

I pray to Christ for your healing,
So you’d be made whole in your feeling.
I pray to Christ for your healing,
So your pleas go beyond the ceiling

I pray to Christ for your healing,
That with repentance you’re dealing
I pray to Christ for your healing,
That you confess to God without concealing.

I pray to Christ for your healing,
So that at Church worship bells be pealing.
I pray to Christ for your healing,
So no longer in darkness you’re reeling.

I pray to Christ for your healing,
That none ever this be stealing.
I pray to Christ for your healing,
That in restful adoration you be kneeling.

I do hope you read the below verses for anxiety and overcome it all by the word of your testimony in Jesus. And may the Holy Spirit be with you in this great step you take towards no longer being down with anxiety. Here are the verses:

  1. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)
  2. But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” (1 Peter 3:14)
  3. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid but gives us power, love, and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
  4. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” (Isaiah 35:4)
  5. But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
  6. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
  7.  “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.” (John 14:1)
  8. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
  9. Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. (Luke 12:22 )
  10. I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. (Psalm 34:4)
  11. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. (Psalm 94:19)
  12. The LORD will vindicate me; your love, LORD, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands. (Psalm 138:8)
  13. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
  14. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
  15.  “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
  16. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

Heal my dear ones O Lord

Heal those whom I hold dear,
Lord let your healing to them come near.
Hear my prayer and hear my plea,
And let all of their illness flee.

O Christ Jesus I desire that they are well,
And also that they prevail against hell.
May the Enemy’s plan against them fail,
Help them when their faith goes frail.

I ask that my loved ones are set free,
From the darkness for eternity.
Let Gospel be in their heart,
So that from God they don’t depart.

9 Lessons From God Concerning Sickness

Sickness is meant…

1. To make us think, to remind us that we have a soul as well as a body – an immortal soul, a soul that will live forever in happiness or in misery – and that if this soul is not saved we had better never have been born.
2. To teach us that there is a world beyond the grave, and that the world we now live in is only a training place for another dwelling, where there will be no decay, no sorrow, no tears, no misery, and no sin.
3. To make us look at our past lives honestly, fairly, and conscientiously. Am I ready for my great change if I should not get better? Do I repent truly of my sins? Are my sins forgiven and washed away in Christ’s blood? Am I prepared to meet God?
4. To make us see the emptiness of the world and its utter inability to satisfy the highest and deepest needs of the soul.
5. To send us to our Bibles. That blessed Book, in the days of health, is too often left on the shelf, becomes the safest place in which to put a bank-note, and is never opened from January to December. But sickness often brings it down from the shelf and throws new light on its pages.
6. To make us pray. Too many, I fear, never pray at all, or they only rattle over a few hurried words morning and evening without thinking what they do. But prayer often becomes a reality when the valley of the shadow of death is in sight.
7. To make us repent and break off our sins. If we will not hear the voice of mercies, God sometimes makes us “hear the rod.”
8. To draw us to Christ. Naturally we do not see the full value of that blessed Savior. We secretly imagine that our prayers, good deeds, and sacrament-receiving will save our souls. But when flesh begins to fail, the absolute necessity of a Redeemer, a Mediator, and an Advocate with the Father, stands out before men’s eyes like fire, and makes them understand those words, “Simply to Your cross I cling,” as they never did before. Sickness has done this for many – they have found Christ in the sick room.
9. To make us feeling and sympathizing towards others. By nature we are all far below our blessed Master’s example, who had not only a hand to help all, but a heart to feel for all. None, I suspect, are so unable to sympathize as those who have never had trouble themselves – and none are so able to feel as those who have drunk most deeply the cup of pain and sorrow.
Summary: Beware of fretting, murmuring, complaining, and giving way to an impatient spirit. Regard your sickness as a blessing in disguise – a good and not an evil – a friend and not an enemy. No doubt we should all prefer to learn spiritual lessons in the school of ease and not under the rod. But rest assured that God knows better than we do how to teach us. The light of the last day will show you that there was a meaning and a “need be” in all your bodily ailments. The lessons that we learn on a sick-bed, when we are shut out from the world, are often lessons which we should never learn elsewhere.

Hide in the Lord Jesus your pain

Hide in the Lord Jesus your pain,
That his healing in your life you gain.
Hide in the Lord Jesus your victories,
That you focus on His humble mysteries.

Hide in the Lord Jesus your sorrows,
That by Him you get better tomorrow’s.
Hide in the Lord Jesus your past,
That you walk with him much fast.

Hide in the Lord Jesus your anguish,
That in self pity you do not languish.
Hide in the Lord Jesus your desires,
That the Holy Spirit you for God’s glory inspires.

(I Am) The God that healeth thee (Video)

 

Lyrics:

I am the God that healeth thee
I am the Lord your Healer
I sent my Word
And healed your disease
I am the Lord your Healer

 

 

Bible verses:

He said,
“If you listen carefully to the LORD your God
and do what is right in his eyes,
if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees,
I will not bring on you any of the diseases
I brought on the Egyptians,
for I am the LORD, who heals you.”
Exodus 15:26

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5

Jesus the healer of emotions and spirit

Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eye is wasted from grief; my soul and my body also. For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away. (Psalm 31:9-10)

The above Psalm verses paint a picture of a person who is not just affected in body but also in soul. We are well aware that Jesus healed people of their physical infirmities. What about the soul and spirit being healed by Jesus? This is what the Holy Scriptures speak about Jesus being able to heal your emotions and spirit. Lets read the following:

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)

For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. (Isaiah 57:15)

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound (Isaiah 61:1)

If you are feeling hopeless, anxious, depressed, fearful, humiliated, insignificant, despondent or just about anything else negative then I want to remind you that the Lord God who made the human soul and spirit is completely capable of healing them. So what is needed from you to receive healing for your emotions and spirit is to believe that Jesus Christ wants to heal you.

You may wonder what is the basis for you to receive your healing. Its simple, its your faith in Jesus Christ and that you deserve your healing. People end up being a block to themselves because they continually consider themselves unworthy. This is mainly because of being conscious of their shortcomings before the law.

Maybe thoughts of your sin haunt you and are a hindrance to you. Come to Jesus and surrender your sin issues to the Lord. Remember when Jesus shed his blood by dying on the cross he took upon himself all of your sins. Guilt comes due to sin. As your sin is dealt with by the Lord’s finished work on the cross then the power of guilt is taken away. I want to just say this to you, ‘there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1)’ so don’t take a guilt trip (click here for a message on this).

Your healing comes by the atonement accomplished by Jesus on the cross for you. Here will of God was fulfilled to break all the barriers to your salvation. Salvation not just in terms of resurrection of the body but also of mind and spirit.

Medicines and psychology are used to help people recover emotionally. Some recover taking a while. Others need frequent therapy and get addicted to antidepressants. Some give up on valid medications and wrongly resort to alcohol.

We must remember that with God all things are possible, even those which are impossible to man. Here’s how to receive healing of your emotions and spirit:

Desire to be set free 

Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. (Psalm 145:19)

Pay attention to the Holy Scriptures

My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.  Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. (Proverbs 4:20-22)

And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:19-21)

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

Have faith for your healing

And Jesus said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease. (Mark 5:34)

And Jesus did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13:58)

And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all. (Acts 3:16)

Faith then comes by hearing; and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17)

Seek the loving face of Christ

My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for he will pluck my feet out of the net. (Psalm 25:15)

You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” (Psalm 27:8)

Give the Lord your pains and worries

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22)

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

Wait upon the Lord

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! (Psalm 27:14)

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. (Psalm 33:20)

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

Avoid unhelpful and worldly thoughts

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. (Proverbs 4:23)

The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. (Matthew 13:22)

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)

As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 1 Peter 1:14

Forgive yourself and those who hurt you

While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep. (Acts 7:59-60)

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32

Pray that you get healed

Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you (Exodus 23:25)

O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. (Psalm 30:2)

I pour out my complaint before him; I tell my trouble before him. (Psalm 142:2)

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)

You can also pray for/with others for healing

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. (James 5:14-16)

Give thanks to the Lord for your healing

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! (1 Chronicles 16:34)

Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! (Psalm 100:4)

Confide in the Holy Spirit always!

But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 14:26)

Likewise the Spirit also helps our weakness: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought but the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (Romans 8:26)

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing; that you may abound in hope, and in the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)

Now the Lord is a Spirit. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

You may pray spontaneously or try this Suggested Prayer: O God I come to you in the name of your Son Jesus with the desire to be set free from all my emotional and spiritual wounds, especially N (N-name your specific problem) which has made me feel very low. I have the highest regard for your Holy Word and choose to abide by it. I believe that you are fully capable of healing me and that you want to set me free. I seek your face O Lord Jesus, which brings sure and everlasting hope. I surrender to you every though of my mind and spirit that is hurting me because you care for me. I wait upon you to strengthen me deep within. With faith in your Holy word, I reject all the falsehood and negativity of the world. As you forgave others even as you were dying on the Cross, so do I follow in your example and forgive myself and all others whoever hurt me in whatsoever way, whether they were aware of it or not. So heal me O Lord as I your child come to your throne of grace in the time of need. I also remember and pray for N (N-name them if they come to your mind) that he/she may become emotionally and spiritually restored. I give thanks to the Lord God for your healing grace. My earnest wish now that the Holy Spirit reminds of everything of Jesus, including the liberty that comes from Christ. Dear Holy Spirit intercede for me and for my healing. Amen and amen.

My thoughts on writing this post: Normally I don’t convey my thoughts on why I write a post but I felt the need to do so this time. I realize that within the church there are many people who carry wounds which are invisible. These are emotional and spiritual wounds. They don’t know what to do about it. Some of them have carried these hurts right from childhood into adulthood. Out of fear of being called weak they don’t know whom in the church to turn to pray for their healing. Maybe they tried attending church, spending time in prayer and fasting etc to get healed but still don’t feel any healing due to not being fully aware of the will of God. I personally believe that if you understand the principles of receiving healing of your mind, body and spirit through Jesus Christ, there is nothing to stop you from being healed. May the Holy Spirit who bring comfort, intercede for you that you experience the fullness of joy, hope and peace in Jesus. Amen.
