Toughen Up on Sickness and Disease

Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. I know that to be true. But when we are weak or in a health battle sometimes we forget.

Instead, please consider how you have overcome tough times in your life before. How you persevered, and how you now know that if it was done before, it will be done again.

I’m doing this now myself. I’m reminding myself of how God has worked for my good time and time again and in every way imaginable. Because lately, I’ve witnessed family and friends being attacked in their bodies to a great degree. And like many of you with the same situations, I want to do something but then I look inward and notice that I often don’t do enough about my own bodily limitations and health challenges.

So today, I encourage you as I encourage myself to toughen up. To get specific about the forces sent to destroy us. Greater is He who is in us than the enemy in the world. Let’s rise up together in prayer to defeat the evil coming against us! – Be healed and made whole in Jesus’ name. (Leviticus 26:8; Deuteronomy 32:30)

Prayers That Avail Much

(for those with sickness, handicaps and disabilities)

“Father, we come before you boldly and confidently knowing that You are not a man that You should lie and that You watch over Your Word to perform it. Therefore, Father, in the name of JESUS, we bring before You those who are called handicapped and ill – mentally and physically – (name them). Father, by the authority of Your Word, we know without a doubt that it is Your will for these Your creations – babies, children, and adults – to be made completely whole and restored,

“We know, Father, that satan, the god of this world, comes against Your handiwork. We know that You are the God of miracles, the God of love, and POWER, and MIGHT!!! Through Your redemptive plan, what JESUS did on the cross and in the pit of hell for us, we, Your people, are redeemed from the curse of the law. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ JESUS has made us free from the law of sin and death. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places far above all satanic forces.

“So we bring these people before Your throne of grace who have been attacked mentally and physically. We intercede on behalf of them and their families and loved ones.

“And satan, WE SPEAK TO you AND TO THE principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and wicked spirits in heavenly places, AND WE BIND you AND LOOSE you FROM your ASSIGNMENTS AGAINGST THESE BEAUTIFUAL PEOPLE IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF THE LORD JESUS. You CAN NO LONGER HARASS OR HINDER THOSE WHO HAVE MADE JESUS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR. WE BIND DOUBT, UNBELIEF, FEAR, TRADITION, DISCOURAGEMENT, DEPRESSION AND OPPRESSION FROM OPERATING AGAINST THE PARENTS, CHILDREN, AND INDIVIDUALS INVOLVED IN SHINING LIGHTS.

“Father, we pray for born-again, Spirit-filled people in positions of authority – administrators, teachers, doctors, nurses, clinicians, and volunteers. We pray that men and women of integrity, blameless and complete in Your sight, remain in these positions, but that the wicked be cut off and the treacherous be rooted out. Father, we pray for laborers of the harvest to go forth preaching the good news to the lost and to the Body of Christ. We pray that You quicken these people to Your Word – that they will be filled with wisdom and revelation knowledge concerning the integrity of Your Word, speaking faith-filled words and doing faith-filled actions, the infilling of the Holy Spirit, divine health, the fruit of the recreated human spirit, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and deliverance. May they know that JESUS is their Source of every consolation, comfort, and encouragement and that they are to be sanctified spirit, soul, and body, We confess that they are redeemed from the curse of the law – redeemed from every sickness, disease, illness, affliction, defect, deficiency, deformity, injury and every demon.

“We speak healing to unborn infants in the wombs of mothers for ‘Lo children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward, and blessed.’

“We speak restoration to damaged brain cells and activation of dormant brain cells. We speak normal intellect for one’s age. We speak creative miracles to the parts of the body. We speak healing to all wounds. We speak words of life and say that you shall live in victory in this life and not die. We speak perfect soundness of mind and wholeness in body and spirit. We say that tongues are loosed and speech is distinct. We say ears hear, eyes see, feet walk in the name of JESUS. We say demons are cast out bowing to the name of JESUS. We speak deliverance to bodies and minds, for You, Lord God, are the help of their countenance and the lifter of those bowed down – the joy of the Lord is their strength and stronghold!

         “We commission God’s ministering spirits to go forth as they hearken to God’s Word to provide the necessary help for and assistance to those we are praying for!

         “Father, no Word of Yours is void of the power that it takes to cause itself to come to pass! We establish Your Word on this earth for it is already forever settled in heaven. Nothing is too hard or impossible for You. All things are possible to us who believe. We pray for more intercessors to stand with us. Let our prayers be set forth as incense before You – a sweet fragrance to You! Praise the Lord! Thank you, LORD OUR HEALER! AMEN!
