What If I Pray And They Don’t Get Healed?
Looking at the church as it started in the book of Acts chapter 2, you see the model of how the church is supposed to be. Jesus demonstrated what our churches and ministries should be to doing for others. Acts 10:38 tells us that Jesus was baptized in the Holy Spirit and He went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed by the enemy (the devil and evil spirits).
How Did Jesus Heal?
The Lord Jesus healed because He was filled with the power of Holy Spirit. He laid hands on the sick and they recovered. He taught His followers to do the same thing. It is all rooted in His strong faith. He told us that we can and must do the same thing in Mark 11:22-25, in fact in Matthew 17:20 Jesus tells us that if we have faith even the size of a mustard seed (a seed type so small it’s like powder), that nothing is impossible for us.
Don’t Be Afraid To Pray
Don’t be afraid to pray for people. We must be led by the Spirit of God so we know how to pray. The Holy Spirit will show you if there are issues with the person you are thinking to pray through prayer. But if you don’t ask Him to lead you and pray for people, nothing will happen. Remember, Jesus rebuked the fever, He rebuked the storm. He didn’t say “God, please do X”. He spoke to the mountain (Mark 11:22-25) or problem and commanded it to be gone. You do the same in Jesus’ Name.
What If They Don’t Get Healed?
What if I pray and they don’t get healed? That is nothing to worry about. You are the hands and feet of the Lord on this earth. If you don’t pray for someone, who will? If you don’t lay your hands on the sick, who will?
James 5:14 promises us that when we lay hands on the sick, they will recover. Your job is to pray for people and believe. When you believe you shall receive. If the person you pray for doesn’t want to be healed, they won’t.
If you want to see miracles in your daily life, you have to start praying for people. God works through the prayers of his people (2 Chronicles 7:14).
