Welcome to Word of Life Study Series- Healing is the Children’s Bread! There are Biblical principles to prayer that we’ll discuss in this episode that will really help us to accurately appropriate God’s Healing provision for our lives. Good intentions, presumption and adherence to religious traditions that are not rooted in the Word will not produce results. We can be sloppy as baby Christians, but our Father God expects us to grow and mature and learn how to rightly handle the Word of truth.


1. All Kinds of Prayers

The Bible teaches that there are several kinds of prayer. However, I will not go into detail on all of them in this episode. Right now let’s concentrate on the prayer of faith and authority for healing. During the life and ministry of Jesus, He was living under the Old Covenant. The New Covenant did not go into force until after His resurrection. There are certain kinds of prayers in our prayer tool box that are designed to appropriate our redemptive rights to divine healing.

 Ephesians 6:18

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.


2. Asking vs Claiming

When I tell people they don’t have to pray to be healed, they look at me in amazement. Many have failed to receive healing because they have based their faith on religious prayer instead of on God’s Word. They expected prayer to do for them what only God’s Word can do for them. This is where a lot of potential confusion can take place. Sometimes we find ourselves asking for things that we already have in Christ. We should be appropriating our inheritance through faith in God’s Word for things God has already given us through our redemption that Jesus had already obtained for us.


3. Prayer Tips

The Word of God and the spiritual laws within God’s Word define the parameters from which the principles of prayer operate.  No one has access to the Father except through Jesus, so until a person is born again, there is no prayer life until he/she is born again. Once a person receives the new birth, they need to be taught and become acquainted with the Kingdom of God and the spiritual laws that govern it.
