We have all heard people say "it's God's will" or "I'll just leave it up to God" when faced with a serious illness or tragedy. Don't fall into that trap. God wants us to pray to him for help.
In Luke 18:1 Jesus told his disciples that they "should always pray and not give up." and then Jesus asked "...will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?" Pray to God from your heart for healing. Don't stop. Don't give up. God wants us to ask him for help. He loves us.
Over 20 percent of the Gospel is about the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. Jesus taught his disciples how to pray and heal. He sent them to carry on his work. Wouldn't Jesus want his followers to pray for healing today?
At Redeemer, our Care Team does just that; pray for the sick, lonely, bereaved, & dying. Also providing Jesus’ “body and blood, to our homebound and hospitalized. While encouraging all to an active prayer life.
May our living God give you his peace and grace.
