Encouragement to Pray for Your Healing and for the Healing of Others, Part 5 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #162)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #162

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is 1 Corinthians 14:15 which reads: “What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from S.D. Gordon. He said: “Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is our 5th and final in our series titled “ENCOURAGEMENT TO PRAY FOR YOUR HEALING AND FOR THE HEALING OF OTHERS” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Once in a church prayer meeting, in Dallas, Texas, we had many testimonies of remarkable answers to prayer for healing of the body. Some had been healed after spending hundreds of dollars on hospital and doctor bills and after long weeks of suffering. Some had been healed who had been given up by good doctors to die. The testimonies were blessed.

At the close of the testimony meeting, a dear old Christian lady rose and said, “Brother Rice, if the time ever comes when I am sick and the doctors can’t help me, and when medicine doesn’t do any good, I’m going to call on you and this church to pray for me!”

How like the rest of us that is! We call on God when other things have failed. How glad He would be if we called on Him first; then, as He directs, we can use medicine and doctors as He leads, and give God the glory when He heals.
