“And these signs will follow THOSE WHO BELIEVE: In My name (JESUS) they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they WILL recover,” (Mark 16:17-18).
Yesterday, my son had a stabbing migraine and asked me to lay hands on him and pray for it to go. In the past, he’d also asked me to pray for them to go, and they would go in Jesus’ name. Praise God they are infrequent now.
Maybe a year or two ago, the Holy Spirit directed me, “more for my son’s faith than mine,” He said, to pray prophetically this way:
That when I laid my hand on his head, I was to place my hand on the exact location(s) where the migraine pain was located.
On the location or locations, I prophetically used my hand, as if I was grabbing the migraine by its roots, and pulled away from his head, one by one, as if extracting the migraine pain.
As I prophetically “pulled out the pain,” I prayed, “In the name of Jesus, migraine, I curse you and command you to die, to bear fruit no more and ever again. I draw you out by all your wicked roots and destroy you by the name and blood of Jesus Christ.”
Then, the Holy Spirit often lead me to prophetically smash the migraine and all its roots in my hands and say, “You are destroyed by the blood of Jesus.” And many times, within a few minutes, migraine level headaches would go and not return.
Praise God, my son doesn’t get stabbing migraines as frequently as he used to. Now, they are only occasional.
Yesterday, one reared its ugly head and got its tentacles into my son. BUT no match for Jesus.
This time, I prayed as above. My son said it left 95% within minutes and was getting better and better until it was finally gone. But 30 minutes after it completely left, it came back full force.
I prayed again likewise. It left completely a few minutes later.
About 30 minutes later, it came back AGAIN full force. By then, I was super ticked at the enemy, and said, “Lord, what is going on?”
And said to my son – great Holy Spirit teaching moment – “Okay, see how healing can be a spiritual battle?” He nodded.
Right then in the kitchen, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Walk a circle around him and declare a firewall of God’s protection around him. When the migraine goes, it will be TOTALLY destroyed when it hits My Fire, and another one won’t be able to come on him again because of the firewall. It too would burn up.”
I asked my son’s permission to walk around him and declare the words of the Lord, and he said “Okay.”
THE MOMENT, I took the first step to walk around him and opened my mouth to make my Spirit led declaration of the firewall, the glory, power, presence, and a heavy, beautiful warmth enveloped me
I said to my son, “Woooooo! Wooooaaah! I feel a powerful presence of God. You are healed, and the migraine will go, and it will not return this time.” Then finished circling him a couple times, obediently declaring the Holy Spirit breathed words of fire in the name of Jesus.
That’s exactly what happened. The stabbing, stubborn, migraine attack was uprooted and destroyed by the blood, fire, and name of Jesus and did not return! Hallelujah to the Lamb of God!
Why not just pop a pill some may inquire?
Both my son and I have a real tendency to have serious, severe, and unusual side effects to most medications. This is why more genetic testing is coming out to find more compatible medicines for each wonderfully made by God, vastly unique person. No medicine is one size fits all. We should be wise and discerning and research every medicine prescribed, all its side effects, etc. Physicians sponsored by the drug industry and who profit from sickness aren’t going to do it for you or your children.
But having said that, I also take God for His Word in Mark 16:17-18
Signs will follow THOSE who believe.
I’m a believer, so that’s me.
If you’re a believer, that’s YOU TOO!
God says, “I WILL LAY HANDS on the sick, and THEY WILL RECOVER.”
Let God be true and every man a liar. Let His people take Him for His Word and not reject it for themselves through unbelief.
Since Mark 16:17-18 is His Word, it’s His will
If you pray for someone who is sick, and they don’t recover right away, DARE NOT call God a liar and say, “It must not be God’s will.” Pray again, ask Him how to pray for that particular person, be still, and listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit.
There are multiple reasons why sickness – both physical or spiritual – holds onto a person. But in almost every case of praying for healing and deliverance from sickness, a spiritual battle is involved. The devil won’t go easily. Our job as believers is to take God for His Word alone, believe and not doubt, to receive what Jesus ALREADY did 2000 years ago – “By His stripes WE, WERE healed,” (1 Peter 2:24), until sickness goes.
Has the Holy Spirit led you to pray for someone’s healing or about something in a prophetic way or given you exact words to pray for a situation and healing and miracles took place?
