Lord – The Healer

I do not have enough fingers on my hands to count the amount of people, I personally know, that are currently suffering from an illness or struggling with an ailment.

The enemy will attack our health because he knows that when we are weak, we tend to let our guard down. BUT this is exactly when we should be on our most alert and have on the Armour of God.

Ephesians 6:10-18 : “10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”

Pray in the name of JEHOVAH-RAPHA!!

Our God is a God with many names and one that He gave Himself in Exodus 15:26 was Jehovah-Rapha.

Modern translations reads as “I am the LORD, who heals you.” but in the original Hebrew translation Jehovah Rapha says ‘I am the Lord – THE Healer” (personal emphasis on ‘The’ ). He is THE One we should pray to,  He is THE One who always hears our prayers, He is THE One that knows the best plan for each one of us and He is THE One that answers our prayers.

He is THE One that wants us to be healtly and happy and live the life He planned for us to have. So ultimately, He is THE One who will heal you.

All we have to do is just pray in His name!

And when you do, pray  in faith, believing and knowing that our prayer has been answered long before we have even prayed it! “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1)


Heavenly Father, You are intimately aware of the struggle I am experiencing — the pain and the despair. You know the desire of my heart to be healed of this illness. I ask now for Your healing touch. You call Yourself Jehovah-Rapha, Lord – THE Healer, therefore, I know that You are able and that just like in Bible times, You can heal me.

I also understand that You will chose what is best for me. I pray that through this trial, I will draw close to You — that You will be my comfort and strength. I pray that ultimately, whatever happens, You will be glorified through me. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Be awesomely blessed!
