Encouragement to Pray for Your Healing and for the Healing of Others, Part 3 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #160)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #160

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Luke 18:1 which reads: “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from John Laidlaw. He said: “The main lesson about prayer is just this: Do it! Do it! Do it! You want to be taught to pray. My answer is pray and never faint, and then you shall never fail.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 3 of our series titled “ENCOURAGEMENT TO PRAY FOR YOUR HEALING AND FOR THE HEALING OF OTHERS” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Sickness is evidently the attack of Satan. Job’s sickness was brought on by the direct attack of Satan. Jesus healed one woman whom, He said, “Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years.” And then of Paul’s thorn in the flesh, we are told it was a “messenger of Satan”. Sickness and disease come from Satan. God permits them as He permits sin and permits certain results of sin. And often God overrules sickness to His own glory. But generally, it is proper to say that sickness is from Satan.

And thus, may not God’s own children call on their Heavenly Father to help them in the attack of Satan on their bodies? Surely, the very nature of sickness means that we ought to pray about it and have a perfect right to pray about the healing of our bodies.

And even better is the sweet thought that God is our Heavenly Father. He has an infinite compassion for us.
