Luke 6:46-49*"But why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' & not do the things which I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears My Words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. 49.But the one who hears My Words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.
LAYING ON OF HANDS
This also helps the sick person. The patient who imagines himself getting well generally heals faster.
Whether we are praying for protection from death or for life, our prayer becomes more powerful as we become a channel of Christ's love. People in love don't just say "I love you,"they dream about each other.
When praying over another,we try to imagine how Jesus would lovingly touch this person,asking His presence to flow through our hands.
Besides demonstrating a loving concern, there is often a transference of power as we ask Jesus to permit our hands to be channels of His love.
Jesus healed the total person as He walked upon this earth &, through our loving touch, He continues to free His people.
Healing prayer, should utilize the imagination to remove the subconscious blocks to Christ's healing love.
No matter how long someone prays for you, as long as you act against the Word, the Word can't work for you. But when you work in line with it, it will work for you.
(Mark 16:15-20)-Signs will always follow the spoken Word. Signs don't follow an individual, they follow the Word. "If signs aren't following, then your not preaching the Word."

And Jesus says to him, I will come & heal him. The centurion answered & said, Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof: but speak the word only, & my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: & I say to this man, Go and he goes, I say to this one to come and he comes.
Faith For Healing
MATTHEW 8:5-13*And when Jesus had entered Capernaum,a centurion came to Him, (Jesus) entreating Him, and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering great pain." And He (Jesus) said to the centurion (a gentile), "I will heal him." But the centurion answered and said, (Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just, (just) say the word, and my servant (will be healed). For I, too, (also) am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one,'Go!' and he goes, and to another, 'Come! and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this! and he does it." (Your words make the law work)
Now when Jesus heard this, He (Jesus) marveled, and said to those who were following,"Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.
11."And I say to you, that many shall come from east and west,and recline at the table with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven; but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." And Jesus said to the centurion,"Go your way; let it be done to you (as you have believed.") And the servant was healed that very hour.
Christ, though His healing, showed that He had compassion on all who were sick. At Capernaum, a centurion sought healing for one of his servants
This Roman military leader demonstrated an amazing faith in Jesus by saying Jesus did not need to be present to heal. He could just speak the word, and the servant would be healed.
In v.9 the centurion compared Jesus' authority to his own. He acknowledged that the disease which afflicted his servant was subject to Jesus, because Jesus had the authority of God behind Him. Jesus said He had not seen anything like this centurion's faith from anyone in Israel..
James 5:14-16:*Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
The result of this prayer would be physical healing. And if the sickness was the result of person sins, they would be the result of personal sins, they would be forgiven.
Our faith is based in God's Word and His provision for heal us by just speaking the word. And God's healing power is manifested through the leaders in the church. When we come to Jesus asking for healing or when we come to our leaders, we can come in faith because we know that God's provision for healing is there.
The provision for your healing has been established by God. He himself is your personal Physician. He has declared that He will heal. God has also provided healing through the atonement of Christ. He has empowered believer believes with power to pray for the healing of others. Through faith, we can pray for ourselves and for others who are sick, trusting in the God who calls himself our Healer.
If you need healing today, come to God in faith. You can approach Him with confidence through Jesus.
Begin with prayer, followed by reading of (James 5:13-16), & other readings as an encouragement to faith. In a private anointing service some instruction should be given to the individual seeking to be healed. After instruction & prayer place a small amount of oil on the forehead of the person for which the prayer is offered. As his finger touches the forehead he will say, brother or sister, I anoint you in the Name of the Father, & of the Son, & of the Holy Spirit. Then hands should be laid upon that person while a second prayer is offered.
