Lent – Day 15 – Prayer for Healing
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
“…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
"Our Father and our God, all that is good and perfect comes from You. All that You created You created good, and the creation of man You called very good. But, sin came into the world by the fallen angel, Lucifer. And from his cunning and deception Eve was tempted and Adam chose to follow his earthly [James 3:14-4:2] wisdom rather than be obedient to Your WORD, so in Adam we all died because of sin.
Now, Jesus Christ our Savior and our Lord has become for us now our life, our healing and our righteousness because in Him was all the debt of sin, death, hell, and the grave paid in full through His shed blood and death on the cross of Calvary.
Now we stand in Him redeem from the curse and all the sickness and disease contained in it. By the stripes of Jesus we were and are now healed. Father, You promised us in Your word that none of the diseases that came upon Egypt and none of the diseases that came on the children of disobedience would come upon us. In Deuteronomy 28 you listed all the sicknesses and diseases that resulted from sin and transgression of the Law. And we have been redeemed from the curse of the Law and are therefore, by Your righteous decree, made the righteousness of God in Christ. And as Your righteous people we have access to all the blessings and privileges of those who are one with You in the body of Christ.
Father, on this 15thday of Lent we pray now that Your healing virtue will be great in us now and flow through us now as it was in and did flow through our Lord Jesus Christ when He was here on the earth going about proclaiming the gospel, doing good, and healing all that were sick and oppressed of the devil.
Father, please heal our brokenness, heal our minds and our hearts, our hands and feet, heal our bodies to be strong to serve Your kingdoms’ cause. Please heal our land, our nation, our communities, our cities, our states and our government from the highest office to the lowest laborer entrusted with the protection and defense of the freedom and wellbeing of all its citizens. Show us the errors of our ways and give us the wisdom to seek and to do what is right in Your eyes, regardless of the opinions of those who have rejected You and oppose us.
Father, in obedience to Your WORD we declare by faith now in agreement with Your Word, that we are healed, and we ask You to manifest Your healing power in us that every sickness and every disease is far from us, far from our families, far from our brothers and sisters in Christ, far from our friends and far from those we love, our enemies and friends alike.
Lord, we thank You as we now receive by faith this petition granted in the Blessed and Holy name of Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord we pray. AMEN”
