Good morning everyone. I have had a number of prayer requests from believers for healing of the dreaded cancer. Please join me to touch and agree on the following prayer.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Father in heaven, I pray today for my brothers and sisters in Christ and their friends and loved ones who are going through the very difficult battle with cancer, a horrible disease. Lord, I speak healing over these precious people and claim Your promises to hear our prayers. Lord, if we believe and have faith as a little tiny grain of mustard seed, that faith is great enough to move mountains and to heal the sick. Lord, I pray that these people will have faith, trust You, and bring their burdens and hearts desires before You. Reach out and touch their sick bodies. Give strength to them physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I pray that You will take away the pain and fear of this disease. I pray that the body of Christ will support and help meet their needs during this season. I pray that these dear ones’ experiences and expressions of faith will be a living testimony of Your grace and power. I pray that You will heal and that the world may know that You are God. I pray for wisdom and guidance for these suffering saints and their families, and for peace in their lives–peace that only You can give. I know that going to heaven takes away all pain and suffering, bringing complete healing. But Lord, what a testimony to the world if You will heal these people on earth. Bless them I ask, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Discerning the Work of God

Remember Tobiah and Sanballat, O my God, because of what they have done; remember also the prophetess Noadiah and the rest of the prophets who have been trying to intimidate me. – Nehemiah 6:14

We find the story in the bible about Nehemiah who set out to rebuild the wall at Jerusalem that had been destroyed. Nehemiah held a position in the Persian Empire that would be comparable to Chief of Staff in our government. Nehemiah wept over the destruction of the city wall and repented for the sins of his generation and the generations before him that had led to the fall of Jerusalem. Nehemiah responded to the news by seeking approval from his superior to take time off to rebuild the wall. Tobiah and Sanballat met Nehemiah’s action with resistance, as did Noadiah the prophetess and other prophets. These were the religious and political leaders of his day. They became distractions to his work and opposed him.

Whenever God does a new work, it is often met with resistance by those in the established “religious community”, and sometimes among those from whom we would expect support. Jesus met the same resistance when He began His public ministry. This same phenomenon happens today. When God begins a new work that can’t be easily explained based upon prior experiences, many make the mistake of assuming it not to be of God. The very people who should embrace and encourage the work become the source of skepticism and opposition. God tells us that His ways are not our ways. He does things in ways beyond our limited understanding.

Before you are tempted to criticize or oppose something that looks different from your past experience, ask God for wisdom and discernment. Examine why you might be tempted to oppose it. The Lord cannot be put in a box. He delights in doing things in ways that may not fit our former paradigms.

Quote of the Day

To know God is to love Him, to love Him is to trust Him, to trust Him is to obey Him, to obey Him is to be blessed by Him.
