Prayer Focus: Physical and Emotional Healing for Prayer Partner
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16)
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)
I have been paralyzed since September 2013. It’s impossible for people to ignore the fact of me sitting in a wheelchair with a weird looking left hand and tubes coming out of my neck. I can’t hide my condition. Some people are hurting on the inside physically or emotionally. Nobody knows what they’ve been through and what they are suffering.
As you ask Jesus to provide physical and emotional healing for your prayer partner today, be mindful that everyone has wounds. Some people can’t keep people from seeing them. Other people hide their scars very well. They get defensive if you bring up their suffering and pain. They don’t want to talk about it.
I don’t believe there’s a perfect person without some kind of wound, except Jesus. We all need the ministry of Jesus. Only He can heal us. He provides physical healing by His promises and He ministers to our emotional and mental wounds. Perhaps you were brought up in a harsh home. Maybe you suffer physical elements and afflictions.
People have wounds psychologists and doctors cannot repair. We cannot solve our own afflictions. But we can call on Jesus and open ourselves up for healing. As you pray for your prayer partner and their family, asked Jesus to do the work no one else can. In His presence, He can do all things. What could take a lifetime to heal, Jesus heals in an instant or over time. Cry out to Jesus together.
- For your prayer partner, their family, and anyone they bring up to be prayed for healing
- For Jesus to do the impossible, miracles for healing we think is too big for Jesus to touch
- For immediate and progressive healing of physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds
- That God would move in His power to restore what the enemy has taken and make His children healthy
