I started off writing lyrics at a young age. My first song was entitled Jesus Is. I composed it on a little note pad with crayons. As I time went on, my lyrical content slowly began to include themes of dating and romance. Over the years, I developed my writing skills to what they are today, which include a long list of songs with varying themes.Our Heavenly Father put all this knowledge and understanding gained from over the years to use on the Acts of Love project.

How Healers Can Prevent Healing

Is it not true that Jesus was sinless? certainly. Are you sinless? Hardly! So there were no obstacles torepparttar flow ofrepparttar 126951 power ofrepparttar 126952 Holy Spirit through him. There ARE obstacles in us. These come from sin and sin comes from selfishness. So we need to concentrate our efforts on eliminatingrepparttar 126953 latter. Greater success will follow, albiet as a long term achiement.

3. Lack Of Attention To Basic Problems In The Sufferer Do you knowrepparttar 126954 person you are praying with? Sometimes, of course, we know people very well. We need to make explicit use of that knowledge to isolate any possible abstacles to healing.

What is their expectation of healing going to be? Have they any experience of being prayed with? Do they remain still and receive or insist on praying as well? Are there any serious ares of sin in their lives of which you are aware which could constitute an obstacle to sin? (But be very careful how you approach these).

In some situations we may not knowrepparttar 126955 person at all. When we are praying with people at public Christian meetings, days of renewal, conference andrepparttar 126956 like, we may often find ourselves ministering to strangers. Follow any information path which seems to be of possible relevance. There are often reasons for nonhealing tucked away in peoples lives.

4. Lack Of Proper Diagnosis Would you be worried if your doctor began proscibing medicine at your next visit without asking aboutrepparttar 126957 problem or investigating its causes? We also need to investigate possible causes. One ofrepparttar 126958 most common reasons for nonhealing lies with a failure to conduct a proper investigation intorepparttar 126959 person's problem.

Do not feel that you have to get straight intorepparttar 126960 praying bit. Take your time and don't let anyone hurry you unnecessarily.

5. Expecting God To Work Instead Of Ourselves Who accomplishesrepparttar 126961 healing? God, of course. But does he choose to do it independently of us? Obviously so in some cases. But often he does not - or why do we bother praying with people for healing? If we are inrepparttar 126962 healing ministry he expects us to do that share ofrepparttar 126963 work which he has entrusted to us. If we skimp on it, if we do not do all that we can if, in short, we fail to love our fellows, then we are at fault and healing will often not occur.

We need to do all we can, as part of our ministry, to ensure that healing happens. Always ask "why" when it does not. If there is no obvious reason lodging withrepparttar 126964 person being prayed with, perhapsthere is a fault which lies with us. If we examine ourselves in this way, we may learn something new for next time.
