Do you believe in the power of prayer for healing?
I know many people who have been healed by prayer, both physically and emotionally. I have seen those I love come through the impossible; seen them be comforted, strengthened and changed through prayer. I have prayed with people who have received the healing power of prayer and known that God has worked through my hands. Yet I have never believed it could or would happen to me. In fact I would go so far as to say that despite evidence to the contrary I didn't fully believe in the power of prayer for healing.
I do now.
I now believe that prayer can heal.
I believe it because I have felt it myself.
I experienced emotional healing last Easter.
And this last week alone I have received pain relief through prayer.
I now know that God heals us when we need it and uses prayer to do that.
I have had complete pain relief for an hour after 5 minutes of laying on of hands by one very special lady at church. I have had a massive reduction in pain for a couple of hours after the leadership team prayed with me. I have felt calmer and more able to cope with my fear after prayer at a distance by two people who were praying for me, when I didn't know it.
Prayer can and does heal.
God heals through prayer.
