Chapter 22: Scripture Prayers for Healing
I believe that every bit of revelation and everything you learn in the area of God’s Word is in
your life forever. What you’re getting from the Word right now in this life will carry over into
the next, and you will build upon it. His Word is eternal. This Word is not going to become
obsolete when this world passes away; it carries on. For so many other things we do in life, this
is not so. They’re going to be gone. But this is forever.
James 5:16 says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be
healed.” What if it might not be His will for that person to be healed, and here you are praying
that they will be, because you read it in the Bible?
Is it scriptural to pray for people to be healed? Yes, it is. Now, we need to qualify it, and we will
get to some very interesting things here. This covers more than one area, and you can pray wrong
or you can pray right. You can pray wrong and not get results. It’s not just praying that gets the
job done. God has already gotten the job done, and He’s the One Who manifests redemptions
and work, but prayers are a part, too. We have a part to play in it. We have communion with
Him, and we have legal rights here on the earth. When we ask Him to do things in faith, it gives
Him entrance into this world on our behalf. The Bible says, “You have not because you ask not.”
(James 4:2)
We are sure it’s God’s will for all of us to be healed today because of Scripture prayers for
We could just say “prayers for healing,” but we’re going to the Bible on it.
He said, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.”
This may seem like a side note, but did you know that your name is written in the Lamb’s Book
of Life? They’re working on your mansion right now. Did you know there’s construction and
preparation going on in heaven? The Lord said, “I go to prepare a place for you. If it wasn’t so, I
would have told you.” (John 14:2) So we know it’s true. They’re working on your place. Do you
wonder what they’re doing?
I read an account of a fellow one time. He fell off of a balcony, and I guess he hit his head on the
sidewalk down below. They picked him up dead, and they took him in and tried to revive him,
but he was dead for a period of time. They finally got him back. He was a believer, and he had
gone to heaven for that amount of time that he was dead, then he came back.
He said, among other things, that the Lord showed him his place. And I’m paraphrasing a little
bit, but he said he had “real estate.” You know, we think about heaven as having mansions with
the white columns in the front, and they all look alike, side-by-side down the street. Well, who
said that? That’s just someone’s idea. But this man said that as he began to look around, there
were grounds and high terrain and bodies of water, and as he began to look around, it was
everything he liked. It was just exactly like what he liked, and he had it all.
You know, in the earth you have to go to the mountains to find good skiing, and you have to go
to the coast to find the beach, but in heaven, I guess you can have them right beside each other.
