Prayers for Healing and Deliverance (2/28/2017)

run

Over the last 31 years, I’ve listened to hundreds of believers praying for the sick and the ailing. The prayers have generally been sincere and filled with faith, but with the exception of maybe two or three instances, I have noticed one thing lacking: prayers for deliverance from demons.

If we study the four Gospels, we will learn that Jesus sometimes prayed for the sick or used a gift of miracles or spoke a healing word, but about a third of the time, our Lord cast out a demon, which had caused the person’s infirmity.

So, why is it that we believers don’t follow our Lord’s example by casting out more demons to heal sick people?

Is it fear on our parts? Or are we so spiritually blind that we can no longer discern the work of demons in sick people?

My prayer today:

Lord, deliver us from bad teachings and remove the spiritual blinders from our eyes so we can see with Your eyes when we pray for the sick.

Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for new revelations on healing and deliverance for Americans NOW.

  1. Demon reality is denied by many church leaders and feared by many others. Therein is the problem – demons of unbelief and demons of fear. We need to start getting the leaders delivered first! I wish!!

  2. I agree! Many people do not think or believe a demon or demons can cause illness or disease, but they do, not always but at times that is the problem. All we need to do is ask the Lord if the illness is caused by a demon, and then pray accordingly.

  3. Thank you so much for teaching on this. Just what I need. God bless you!

  4. Roger,

    There’s no doubt that one of there biggest problems is bad teaching and poor leadership examples. Maybe the only hope is to bypass leaders and train the members instead,which is what the Lord and His disciples did. God bless you.

  5. Yvette,

    I agree with you. The answer mainly lies in seeking the Lord when we pray for the sick. God bless you.

  6. Debbie,

    This is also what I need, too. God bless you.

  7. Roger put it well. The church is hesitant to speak on demons because it’s associated with the abuses of the Charismatic persuasion and of those who are simply too caught up in it. Yet Scripture indicates it’s real.

  8. Brandon,

    Sadly, we the church often react to bad experiences rather than following scripture. Thanks for stopping by. God bless you.

  9. I don’t blame the church or pastors. I look at my life, my heart, and ask, do I believe, does my life have the fruits of healing the sick, raising the dead, and casting out demons? If so, then in gentleness I should help remove satans blinders from the minds of those who disbelieve and if not, I need to repent of my accusations and deal with my own disobedience first.

  10. kingdomplay,

    Good insight. Thanks for your input. God bless you.

    A thought provoking post! I have actually had this cross my mind before, as like you said, in the past it was common to associate illness with demon possession and a common belief held through society and history that God was using illness to punish sins of the people (for example, a widespread belief during the plague that struck Wittenberg in 1527 during Martin Luther’s lifetime.) I believe that factors such as the advance of science and medicine have decreased the practice of casting out demons, along with a steady decline of religious affiliations among people in society. Although, can medicine and science explain every illness both mental/physical? No it cannot. It also cannot explain people who have experienced supernatural and/or unexplainable events, though it does try to.. likely chalking their experience to one diagnosis or another. Great post!

  12. Thanks for your input. God bless you.
