The Lord Is Jehovah-Rapha

(excerpt from Prayers that Avail Much by Germaine Copeland)

Healing of the Handicapped

Father, we come before you boldly and confidently, knowing that You are not a man that You should lie and that You watch over Your Word to perform it. Therefore, Father, we bring before You those who are called handicapped and ill- mentally and physically. Father, we know by Your authority of Your Word, we know without a doubt that it is Your will for these people- babies, children, and adults- to be made completely whole and restored in the name of Jesus.
Although Satan, the god of this world, comes against Your handiwork, we know you are the God of miracles, the God of love, power, and might. Through Your redemptive plan, we are redeemed from the curse of the law. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. We are seated with Christ in heavenly places far above all satanic forces. We bring those who have been attacked before Your throne of grace. We intercede on their behalf, and for their families and loved ones.
We proclaim the victory Jesus one at Calvary when He disarmed the principalities and powers that were waged against us. We believe that everyone who has the opportunity this day to make Jesus their Lord and Savior will call upon His name and be saved. We bind their spirits, souls, and bodies to the will of God, to the blood of Jesus, to mercy, grace, and truth. We destroy strongholds of unforgiveness, fear, and distrust. In the name of Jesus, we loose unbelief, fear, discouragement, tradition, depression, and oppression from the minds of the parents, children, and individuals involved.
Father, we pray for born-again, Spirit-filled individuals in positions of authority- administrators, teachers, nurses, orderlies, attendants, and volunteers. We pray that men and women of integrity, blameless and complete in Your sight, remain in these positions, but the wicked be cut off and the treacherous be rooted out. Father, we pray for laborers of the harvest to go forth preaching the good news to the lost and to the Body of Christ.
We pray that You quicken these individuals to Your Word- that they may be filled with wisdom and revelation knowledge concerning the integrity of Your Word, speaking faith-filled words and doing faith-filled actions. We pray for the infilling of the Holy Spirit, divine health, the fruit of the recreated human spirit, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and deliverance. May they know that Jesus is their Source of every consolation, comfort, and encouragement, and that they are to be sanctified- spirit, soul, and body. We confess that they are redeemed from the curse of the law- redeemed from every sickness, disease, malady, affliction, defect, deficiency, deformity, injury, and every demon.
We speak healing to unborn infants in the wombs of mothers for children are a heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is their reward. We speak restoration to damaged brain cells and activation of dormant brain cells. We speak normal intellect for one's age. We speak creative miracles to parts of the body and healing to all wounds. We speak words of life and say that they shall live in victory in life and not die. We speak perfect soundness of mind and wholeness of body and spirit. We say that tongues are loosed and speech is distinct. We say ears hear and eyes see in the name of Jesus. We say demons are cast out, bowing to the name of Jesus. We speak deliverance to bodies and minds, for You, Lord God, are the Help of their countenance and the Lifter of those bowed down- the joy of the Lord is their strength and stronghold!
We commission God's ministering spirits to go forth as they hearken to God's Word to provide the necessary help and assistance to those for whom we are praying! Father, no word of Yours is void of the power it takes to cause itself to pass! We establish Your Word on this earth for it is already settled in heaven. Nothing is too hard or impossible for You. All things are possible to us who believe. We pray for more intercessors to stand with us. Let our prayers be set forth as incense before You- a sweet fragrance before You! Praise the Lord! In Your Name we pray, amen.
