Healing Passage - James 5:13-16
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Tip 1: You're not Alone

Tip 2: The Power of Repentance
Secondly, find someone of spiritual maturity that you trust with whom you can share your sins and weaknesses. Having a clear conscience often hastens God's healing (emotional or physical) power. If you are holding on to the weight of unconfessed sin, I challenge you to release this burden today. God will forgive, heal, and restore you, a truth which can be reinforced within a loving community of believers. Allow the Lord to lead you to a safe environment and receive the refreshing that comes from biblical repentance and confession.
Tip 3: The Prayer of Faith

Today I am praying for my family, friends, loved ones, and readers who need physical healing. Follow the links below:
IN PURSUIT OF WHOLENESS
I have seen God bring salvation, healing, and restoration to his people in powerful ways. These wonderful blessings are often received through prayer and meditation on God’s Word. I invite you to read and study the teachings and exercises in my book In Pursuit of Wholeness: Experiencing God’s Salvation for the Total Person. I believe that this work will help build your trust in God and enable you to approach him with greater confidence. Follow the link for more information on this resource.
Do you have a healing testimony? Please let us hear from you! Also, please consider making a financial contribution to Wilfred Graves Ministries to help us continue our ministry of salvation and healing. We would like to build or locate a physical space (a "healing house") for hurting people to receive prayer, pastoral counseling, and other kinds of personal ministry on a regular basis. For more information on our vision to build a healing house, please follow the link. We would appreciate your support.
