Reading taken from Matthew 7:7-12 (Have it read  to you)

Week 5 of our Teach me to PRAY! series is looking at the huge and sometimes controversial topic of ‘Praying for Healing’ – as we approached this topic the following question was raised from an article on the Desiring God website:

…how much confidence should we voice in petitioning God for physical healing? It somehow feels wrong or cheap to pray, ‘God, heal this person — but if you don’t that’s okay; your will be done.’ I feel less genuine in my asking God to move on someone’s behalf when I’m constantly also acknowledging to myself that he might not, and I must acknowledge it. [How can we] rightly pray in confidence and with authority on someone’s behalf for healing while remaining in full submission to the mystery of God’s will?”

The message this week seeks to engage with this question which hopefully encompasses a lot of our struggles and thought processes.

We also watched the following testimony video:
