“Yes, one double cheeseburger with extra cheese, hold the pickle, large fries and a strawberry milkshake. O, and I’ll have some extra mayo with that.”
How is it that we have no problem ordering what we want from a fast food menu, but we get all tongue tied when we order healing for someone? Yes, I said order.
Praying for healing for someone is just like ordering off of a menu. When you order food, you have to tell the person taking your order exactly what you want. If you don’t, you may not get what you want or like what you get. If you hesitate and don’t know what you want or don’t say it clear enough, they may ask you to please step aside and let the next person in line order until you know what it is that you want to order.
Why would praying for healing be any different? Since all sickness and disease is the direct result from demonic attack by the enemy who comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10), and healing is effectuated by your word through the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus name and faith in His name, you have to first tell the demons what you want them to do and then you need to instruct the body what you want it to do.
If you just start talking to the demons without giving them explicit instructions, they have no reason to obey you. Some people just stand there and start jabbering nonsensical things like “You are a demon from hell!” (Hint: it already knows that), “You are cursed!” (yup, it knows that, too), “I curse you!” (So what? It is already cursed) “I rebuke you!” (Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. Jude 1:9)
Then if you start to pray for healing, don’t automatically switch back to the old begging mode and start asking God to heal the one you are supposed to be praying for. In John 14:12, Jesus specifically tells us to do the things that He did. He does not say that we should beg Him to do it. He said that it would be the sign that follows the believer that in His name they will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover or as the Greek says it, they have recovery.
The first thing you need to do is to identify it, such as the spirit of cancer, the spirit of diabetes or whatever name fits the disease or malady. If it is not clear, then you address the spirit of infirmity which covers all of them anyway. Next you need to let it know that it has no authority to be there and that in Jesus name you command it to go, to leave the body, to be gone, to leave them, to get out and enter them no more.
Next you need to speak to the body and tell it exactly what you want it to do: be healed, pain be gone, disks line up, leg grow out, new hip, new knee, new cartilage, body be restored and made whole in Jesus name.
You can always command life in Jesus name.
However, even if you mess it up and do not say exactly what you should, it is your intention that counts most. The Lord looks on the heart…
And if you don’t see it working, stop! Step back and pray, “Lord, I have died and it is You who flows through me.” and hit it again. He is the vine and we are the branches. Without Him we can do nothing.
Before you start ministering to an individual, you should let them know that Jesus loves them and that He is going to prove it to them by healing them. I have seen more instant healings this way than any other. This also opens the door to them realizing that Jesus must love them especially since He just touched them and healed them.
What better time to introduce them to Jesus and encourage them to confess Him as their Lord and Savior?
