How to Have Faith for Healing

Faith for Healing

Jesus said in Matthew 21:22 that you’ll receive whatever you ask in prayer, believing. So how do you pray in faith?

First, when asking God for anything, it’s important to have an attitude of thanks. Philippians  4:6 says, Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

That doesn’t mean you thank God for your problems; instead, thank Him for what He is about to do! is shows you trust Him.

Psalm 103:2-3 gives this great promise: Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities.

How wonderful to know that when you turn to God, He will cleanse you from every sin. “Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD,  “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow” (Isaiah 1:18).

Also, be sure to forgive anyone who has ever harmed you. Ephesians 4:32 says, Be kind …, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Psalm 103:3 has another great promise: He heals all your diseases. Jesus accomplished this on the cross, and Isaiah 53:5 says, By His stripes, we are healed.

That’s why you can look at any illness and say, “You’re part of all the diseases that Jesus has already healed, so you must leave right now.”

God is looking for faith. As 2 Chronicles 16:9 tells us, “For the eyes of the L run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”

So have faith to believe, then let the Lord do the rest—because He stands by His Word to perform it.

May God bless you as you pray in faith!
