How You Can Be Healed! – Gardner

by Velmer Gardner

From “The God of Miracles Lives Today” – 1950

Regardless of your affliction, you can be healed. If doctors have given you up to die, you can be healed. When your friends say your disease is incurable, you can be healed. Even though the paralyzing hand of death is upon your body, you can be healed.

Very briefly, I will give you some things you must do to receive healing from Christ. Thousands of people have been healed by following these simple instructions. God is no respecter of persons, and He will heal you if you will obey and then receive. Do not forget that every promise in the Bible is conditional. If you meet the conditions, the promises are yours.

1. You must be a “born again” Christian. — Thousands of people today are good citizens, professing Christians, and members of churches, but they have never been “born again” by the power of God. Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again,” John 3:7. Nicodemus was a good man, but not good enough to go to Heaven. “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,” Romans 3:23. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us,” I John 1:8-10.

Divine healing is for Christians only. It is the children’s bread. Nothing could be more absurd than to expect God to heal our body, and then we use that body to glorify and serve the devil.

Some say, “Jesus healed sinners.” That is true, but most of them were people who had never heard of Him. Afterward He commanded them to sin no more lest a worse thing come upon them, look at John 5:14. It would be fatal for you to be prayed for and then not live for God. Something much worse would happen to you.

If you are not a “born again” Christian, all you have to do is: Confess to God that you are a sinner; ask God to wash your sins away through the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; believe in your heart that God has heard you and that Jesus’ blood has cleansed you from all sin. Isa. 1:18; Heb. 7:25; II Cor. 5:17. Then promise God you will sin no more. Go to church and live for God. He will give you the power to live a Christian life. II Pet. 1:5; Jude 24.

2. You must know it is God’s will to heal YOU! — Oh, the faith paralyzing prayer, “Lord if it be Thy will, please heal me.” III John 1:2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

The leper came to Jesus and said, “Lord if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean,” Matthew 8:2. Jesus immediately put forth His hand and touched him saying, “I will; be thou clean,” Matthew 8:3. This leper was ignorant of the will of God because he had never heard the will of God. They did not have the Word of God then. But today we have His precious Word and there is no excuse for this ignorance. Many people that are sick know very little about the Scriptures, and many of them do not seem to have any desire to learn.

It is still His will to heal you. Many people today say they do not believe it is God’s will to heal them, yet they spend thousands of dollars on doctors and drugs trying to get “out of the will of God.”

If God healed someone else and then refused to heal you, it would not be fair; God is no respecter of persons. He will save “whosoever,” and He will heal “whosoever.”

When you pray, “if it be thy will.” You are saying, “Now God if you’ll keep your promise.” God promised—that’s good enough for me. There are some things we do not need to pray, “if it be thy will.” He has already revealed His will through His Word.

It is God’s will to save all, to bless all, to protect all, and to heal all. I John 5:14-15, “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us. And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.”

3. You must be sure there is nothing between you and God that would hinder you from receiving healing. — I John 1:7 — Amos 3:3 — Col. 3:6. If you are right with God you will be right with everyone else. God allows sickness to punish those who will speak against, criticize, and find fault with their spiritual leaders, Numbers 12:1. Many times God has dealt severely with people because of this sin. I Chron. 16:22; I Thess. 5:12, 13.

If there is anything in your heart toward anyone, get it out of the way. David said, “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me,” Psalm 66:18. I John 4:20; John 13:35; Mark 11:25, 26; James 5:16.

Many are sick today because they will not pay their tithes. You are not right with God if you are not tithing. You cannot expect God to bless you, because He said He would curse you if you robbed Him. Mal. 3:8.

God will not heal, if you are irreverent toward the things of God. I Cor. 11:28-30. Likewise, God will not heal us if we continue to abuse or neglect our bodies. This is a sin. It should be confessed and forsaken; then God will have mercy.

Do not try to hide anything from God. Pray until you know you are right with God, and then believe in spite of all the demons of Hell. If we are right with God, He is going to be moved with compassion and anxious to heal our bodies.

Some say if God heals me, then I’ll serve Him. This is absolutely the wrong motive. You should live for Him regardless. God does not heal on your “if” basis. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God,” Matthew 6:33; live for Him, and He will supply all your needs. Notice also that God commanded him to go to the house of the Lord. Many people never return after God heals them. That is why so many people lose their healing. You must continue on with God. He knows what you will do with your body—if He heals you. By all means I encourage you to go to a church that preaches healing. You will lose your healing if you lose your faith.

4. You must realize God uses different methods to bring healing. If you get your mind set on one way and attempt to hold God to your way you may rob yourself of God’s healing power. There are many ways God used in the past: the brazen serpent, the shadow of Peter, the troubled waters of Bethesda, dip seven times in Jordan, touching His garment, spittle and clay on blind eyes, etc.

Here are some of the major ways that God uses to bring healing today:

(a) The power of the Lord being present to heal: Luke 5:17. I believe we can pray and seek God until the power of God is so powerful that sickness and disease will have to leave, without any prayer being offered for deliverance. The devil is afraid of the power of God. Scores have been healed this way. I have been healed many times myself, just because the power of God was so mightily in the service.

(b) The Word of the Lord: Psa. 107:20. As we read the pages of the Holy Bible we find there are many cases where people were healed by the spoken Word of the Lord.

To me there is nothing that will produce more faith for healing, than the powerful Word of God. That is why we need to reverence and read His Word. I John 1:1; claim the promise of His Word. Faith will begin to work and the healing has to come. Countless thousands have been healed by this scriptural method today. While we preach the Word, many right then receive their healing. The Word inspired faith, and they are healed without prayer by us. Don’t forget all Heaven is behind the Word that He sends to heal you, Psalm 107:20.

(c) Anointed handkerchiefs: If you are unable to get to service or know a friend at a distance who needs healing, this is a very successful way to receive healing. God will use this simple act of faith to glorify His Name. Place this cloth that has been prayed over on the afflicted part of your body, and read Acts 19:11

12. Then read and believe Heb. 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Believe God in spite of symptoms and fear and you will be healed.

(d) God heals when you praise Him: Psa. 103:1-3. It is not only good for the mind, to get your eyes off your sickness; it not only refreshes your soul; but it also causes God to rejoice that you will trust Him regardless of your afflictions. Job said, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him,” Job 13:15.

Many times praise brings the victory. Joshua shouted “before” the walls of Jericho fell. Paul and Silas “praised God” while they were bound in jail. This praise brought deliverance and a great revival. Again, I can testify that I have been healed by praising God.

(e) Prayer of faith and anointing with oil: This is one of the most practiced methods of praying for the sick. Mark 16:18. If you believe, you can lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.

God honors faith. It was the centurion’s faith that brought healing to his servant. It was the faith of the four men that brought the palsied man on the roof to Jesus that caused healing to come. If you have faith, you can pray the prayer of faith, and God will heal. That is why we encourage all to earnestly pray while we pray for the sick.

The prayer of faith with the anointing of oil was the custom given to the elders of the early church for the healing of the sick. James 5:14-15.

(f) Gifts of Healing and Working of Miracles: I Cor. 12:9, 10. There is no doubt that the apostles were entrusted by God with these gifts. In these last days God is again pouring out His Spirit upon humble servants and these gifts are operating again. No man can operate these gifts himself; it is only as they are anointed with the power of the Holy Ghost. When the Gifts of Healing work, no disease can stand in their presence. Multitudes have been brought to God under the ministry of humble servants God has trusted to pour His power through.

(g) The Name of Jesus: John 14:13-14, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” Oh what a promise when we realize that Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father; that Jesus holds the highest position in the universe as the Head of the Church. Jesus says, “Up to this time you have never prayed in My Name, but now, whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My Name, He will give it to you.” (Paraphrased from John 16:24). This is no doubt one of the most staggering statements that Jesus ever uttered; that we are to have the use of His Omnipotent Name.

When you were born into the family of God, the right to use that Name was yours. He is with us now in the power of that Name. That Name is to take His place. All that Christ did locally then, can be done now through His Name. The devil fears the Name of Jesus. God has exalted Jesus to the highest possible position, and given Him a Name above every name. He has bestowed upon Him honor, glory, and power, and He has seated Him at His own right hand in the Heavenlies, far above every known authority. Now, all this honor, glory, authority, and power, is vested in the Name of Jesus—and this Name is given to us. Fear not the raging powers of satanic oppression. They are defeated in the Name of Jesus. James 4:7: “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

The Gifts of Healing and the prayer of faith all operate through the power of Jesus Name. It is absolutely dangerous for anyone who is unsaved or unclean before God to attempt to meet the devil in the Power of His Name. Acts. 19:11-17. Keep your heart clean. Walk in all the light God has given you, and then you can boldly rebuke sickness in the power of His Name, and it must obey and leave you.

5. You must realize there is a difference between healings and miracles. Thousands today fail to receive healing because they are trying to hold God to a miracle. We must leave this in the hand of God. He will do what He knows is best and will bring the most glory to His Name.

Healings are usually gradual and maybe no change will be noticed when you are prayed for. When Christ cursed the fig tree, the life immediately began to die within it. However, there was no outward change at that time. The next morning it was dead.

We must believe that when prayer is made the work is done. The disease is cursed and must die. It may take it some time to pass from your body, but leave that to God. You will be healed if you do not doubt.

God promised Abraham a son and Abraham believed God. Rom. 4:20-21. Oh, how many people today cast away their confidence when God does not immediately perform the miracle. Heb. 10:35-36. In Mark 16:18 it says, “They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” He did not say how soon. Commit yourself to God. Rest upon His Word after you are prayed for and you shall recover.

When I pray for the sick I believe this: I can pray and appropriate the healing virtue of Jesus to your body through the power of His Name. When you have a cancer, I command that living, evil spirit of cancer to come out of your body. It must obey. There is no other alternative for it, because I command in His power. Usually, this is the process, if it is a healing: When the command is given, the spirit comes out. The cancer becomes dead flesh in your body. This dead flesh dissolves and passes from your body in a few days, and you will be perfectly well. Usually the person gets very sick and upset as this material comes from their body.

The working of miracles is different. They are usually instantaneous. When a miracle occurs, a blind eye is instantly restored to perfect vision. Paralyzed, crippled limbs are instantly straightened out, etc.

Then there are creative works. A man had his entire eyeball torn out. He was prayed for, and instantly had a new eyeball with perfect vision.

The more faith the church gets the more miracles we will have. Even Jesus could not perform many great and mighty works in a certain community because of their unbelief, however He healed a few people.

6. You must have faith—not hope. I prayed for the sick many years and HOPED they would get well. I prayed for hundreds of people and they HOPED they would get well, but this is not faith. Everyone knows God CAN heal—Faith believes HE WILL!

God has given a new revelation of faith that is bringing healing to many. This is my simple definition of faith. FAITH BELIEVES THAT GOD WILL DO WHAT HE HAS PROMISED TO DO! Isn’t that simple? A child can grasp that, and that is the way God wants it.

I believe if we call—He will answer, Jer. 33:3. As hands are laid upon you for healing, let your faith arise and touch God until you can see by faith that in reality it is the hands of Jesus upon you. That is why we pray in His Name. People have absolutely, literally, felt the hands of Jesus touch an enlarged heart, crushing it instantly to normal size.

Faith never waits to see the answer. Faith believes regardless of circumstances. Some people say if I could see someone get out of a wheelchair, then I would have faith. That would not be faith; that would be sight. Faith believes what can’t be seen. Heb. 11:1.

Faith believes—regardless of symptoms. This is not mind over matter. If you have a pain you have one. But faith doesn’t look at a pain, it looks at God, and claims healing in spite of the pain. It won’t be long until the pain will leave. Abraham didn’t look at the impossibilities, he looked at God—and he received the promise.

Faith believes when you’re prayed for. Mark 11:24.

Faith sets the time for your healing. Make up your mind that when you are prayed for, you are going to believe.

Faith is the switch in our hand to turn on all the omnipotent power of our Lord to bring healing to our bodies.

The light switch on the wall is very small, but pressing against that switch is all the power of the great light company. Thousands of volts of power surge through those lines and then the wires are run to your home. The power is there all the time. When you turn the switch on, it will produce all the power your electrical system can stand. You don’t have to worry about whether there is enough power or not, all you have to do is turn on the switch. Instantly, the power surges through your system. The lights flash on, the radio plays, etc. Oh, what a picture of faith! It is so small it can’t be seen. Jesus said even a grain, the size of a mustard seed, would remove mountains. God will give all of us faith if we read His Word. “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God,” Romans 10:17. Let’s turn on the “switch.”

The power plant of Heaven has the power ready. When faith comes, instantly that great power begins to flow through your body. Don’t worry about any lack of power. I have felt all my body could stand. Instantly, the light of glory flashes on, the radio of Heaven begins to play in your soul and the darkness of sickness is driven out.

When the devil brings the symptoms back and tells you that you are not healed, meet him with God’s Word. Make him listen to you. Our salvation has to be based upon the Word rather than feelings, because many times we do not feel anything. Many times the devil tells me I am not saved, so I take him to the Word—John 6:37.

I tell the devil I came to God, and God is obligated and willing to save me, so I’ll believe God instead of the devil. The devil has to leave when you resist him with God’s Word.

We must do the same with healing. Quote the devil God’s many hundreds of promises to heal you. Tell the devil your symptoms are there and you don’t feel good—but also tell him your faith does not depend upon what you feel, it depends upon what God says. God will never forsake you then. He will see you through the test.

Faith believes God before the visible answer comes. When Joshua and his people marched around Jericho, they had faith in God and shouted before the walls fell down. To the natural eye the walls were as solid as ever, but not to the eye of faith. When Jesus came to the tomb where Lazarus had lain for four days, He said, “Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.” He already could visualize Lazarus walking forth, John 11:41

Look at Proverbs 4:20-22. Pray and read His Word, dear friend, until you are assured you have more than hope and more than sympathy. Seek God until a living faith begins to grow. Then exercise that faith, and God will give you some more. Faith is so simple, none need err and not have it.

In closing this thought on the simplicity of faith, let me tell you of a true incident that took place in China a few years ago.

Some missionaries were speaking in the church I pastored, and they told us a touching story of the healing of an ignorant, illiterate woman’s daughter.

The doctor examined the girl and gave her only one hour to live. The poor illiterate woman that had only been saved two weeks from heathen darkness rushed down to the mission station. She asked these missionaries to pray real quickly for God to heal her daughter. They saw such simple trust that they asked her to pray. She dropped on her knees, and this was the simple prayer she prayed: “Dear Jesus these people tell me that you heal and I believe you do. So I want you to heal my girl. Don’t put it off Jesus, cause she can only live an hour. You’ll have to do it before you do anything else.” Then she said, “Now Jesus I’ll tell you how to get to my place. Go three blocks past the mission station, then turn to your left two blocks, then turn up the alley until you come to a place with a fence around it. Inside this fence is my house. When you get there Jesus, don’t knock, because my girl’s so sick she can’t answer the door and I won’t be home yet.” (She expected an answer.) “So go right on in, it will be all right. She is in the back bedroom, so please heal her. Thank you for it, Amen.”

Tears were streaming down the cheeks of the missionaries, and they said, “Sister, we will go home with you. We think Jesus understood the directions. They followed all her directions until they came to the little house inside the fence. When they walked on the porch, the door opened and there was the girl—perfectly whole. JESUS NEVER FAILS . . . ONLY BELIEVE . . . ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE IF YOU WILL BELIEVE!

We make no claim that all we pray for will be healed. All were not healed in the days of Jesus. There is no sickness He can’t heal—but there are some sick folk He can’t heal.

I believe in salvation, regardless of the fact that many are not saved. So I believe in healing, regardless of the fact that many do not get healed.

All would be saved if they would take Christ, and all will be healed if they will only believe Him the same as for salvation.

Jesus Was The Great Healer When He Was Upon This Earth!

The Lord Jesus Christ healed, though medical men abounded—there were “many physicians.” Mark 5:25-34.

The Lord Jesus Christ healed, without exception, all who came or were brought to Him. Matt. 8:15-17.

The Lord Jesus Christ sometimes healed without the result being apparent at once. Luke 17:12-19.

The Lord Jesus Christ sometimes healed gradually. John 4:46-53 (He began to mend.)

The Lord Jesus Christ generally healed instantly. Matt. 15:30-31.

The Lord Jesus Christ sometimes indicated healing would be in the near future. John 9:1-7.

The Lord Jesus Christ healed all manner of diseases, including lunacy, epilepsy, leprosy, palsy, fever, paralysis, blindness, deafness, a withered hand, and a sword wound. Matt. 4:23-24.

The Lord Jesus Christ healed people at a distance without going to them. He healed one person 16 miles away. John 4:46-48.

The Lord Jesus Christ healed illness associated with devils. Luke 9:39-42.

The Lord Jesus Christ healed by a touch, by others touching Him, by Him taking people by the hand, by a command, and by a word. Matt. 8:2-3; Luke 8:4244; Mark 1:30-31; Luke 6:6, 10; Mark 7:34.

The Lord Jesus Christ healed chronic cases: One case 12 years standing, Matt. 9:20; one case 18 years standing, Luke 13:11; and one case 38 years standing, John 5:2-9.


Through the power of the Holy Ghost and the authority of His Name you can receive His touch today. He has given us authority to exercise the Power of His Name, to bring deliverance to you until He returns.

My Lord And My God

Jesus Christ was born in the meanest circumstances, but the air above was filled with the hallelujahs of the heavenly host. His lodging was a cattle pen, but a star drew distinguished visitants from afar to do Him homage.

His birth was contrary to the laws of life. His death was contrary to the laws of death. No miracle is so inexplicable as His life and teaching.

He had no cornfields or fisheries, but He could spread a table for 5,000 and have bread and fish to spare. He walked on the waters, and they supported Him.

His crucifixion was the crime of crimes, but, in God’s view, no lower price than His infinite agony could have made possible our redemption. When He died, few men mourned; but a black crepe was hung over the sun. Though men trembled not for their sins, the earth beneath shook under the load. All nature honored Him; sinners alone rejected Him.

Three years He preached His gospel. He wrote no book, built no church, and had no money back of Him. After 1,900 years, He is the one central character of human history, the perpetual theme of all preaching, the pivot around which the events of the age revolve, and the only Regenerator of the human race.

Was it merely the son of Joseph and Mary who crossed the world’s horizon 1,900 years ago? Was it merely human blood that was spilled on Calvary’s hill for the redemption of sinners and has worked such wonders in men and nations throughout the centuries?

What thinking man can keep from exclaiming, “MY LORD AND MY GOD!”

  • Nina

    I, like another reader have bad acne. I am broken and sad. I am asking for prayers as the only thing I am left to do is give this to God. I pray for acceptance and healing. I pray for God to hear my cries. Thank you

    • Nina – We hear your cries and God hears your cries. I speak grace and love an acceptance to you Nina in Jesus Name! Father, we give this condition to you and expect a miracle from you. We know you can do and we know you want to do it. You said that you have overcome the world and that we should come to You. We are coming to you now.

      We together break the power of disappointment and sadness over her and speak joy and hope into her life. I bind this acne from her and I claim great skin in its place. She will change. She will see it in Jesus Name.

    • Kristie

      i also am struggling with acne. I’ve been asking God and He told me I needed to trust Him completely. I stopped my acne medication and was praying, but I still tried to have control so once I saw it getting worse, I doubted and used too much which made it even worse. I know Jesus has been telling me for awhile to give this too Him, its the only thing I have been holding back. Its so hard because I have a low self esteem and I know He loves me but with other people I just feel as if all they are looking at is my acne. Even at youth group I get insecure.

  • Meg

    I claim my healing. What I’m going through is temporary and I’m healed. Jesus took our infirmities and bore our sickness. By his stripes all were healed and I’m healed.

  • Thalia Best

    My Lord Jesus Christ, I claim a healing for myself and my husband, who is battling cancer. I trust in your word and pray for your will to be done in our lives.

  • HAK425

    I am very confused by the following statement…

    “We make no claim that all we pray for will be healed. All were not healed in the days of Jesus. There is no sickness He can’t heal—but there are some sick folk He can’t heal.”

    When earlier in the post you stated this…

    God is no respecter of persons, and He will heal you if you will obey and then receive. Do not forget that every promise in the Bible is conditional. If you meet the conditions, the promises are yours.

    So the promise of healing is ours IF we meet all the conditions? But maybe not? He has the power to heal all sicknesses, but some sick individuals He can’t or won’t? So what if I meet all of the conditions yet he doesn’t heal?

    Also, last time I checked a promise was a promise….and not dependent on conditions.

    • sam

      A promise is different from faith. Some people choose not to be healed. You are either for God or against Him, there is no in between. Faith heals and it comes from the Lord.

  • Malik

    I could have an incurable disease. Could you please pray for me. I’ve confronted Jesus many many many nights with tears in my eyes, asking him to help. And I believe and have faith that he has done so. So I’m asking you, could you please pray for me?

    • Malik – We will pray for you. Keep feeding on the articles and the scriptures on this web site. They will encourage you, strengthen your hope, and build your faith. Faith, faith in God, is what will heal you. Read the books and articles on faith.

      Don’t beg to be healed. Receive the knowledge of His will concerning healing and let the faith come to your heart. I speak grace and peace to you and I curse fear in Jesus Name. I believe you will hear from God and you will make it.

  • Gabru

    I’m suffering from acne for so many years
    .I have applied so many creams and spend a lot many to heal my acne but nothing worked.I am depending on god jesus to heal me . Please pray for me. My face is full of whiteheads and dark spots .my pores in face are clogged with dirt.only Jesus can heal me .Please pray for me.

    • Gabru – I curse the acne in Jesus Name and command it to leave you. I speak peace and love and self-esteem and acceptance all over you in Jesus Name. Lord I stand with Gabru and I look to You to be his God and his healer. Bless you Lord and thank you for totally healing Gabru. Thank you, Rex

  • Pauline Plummer

    Could you please pray for me four years ago I realised I was demon possessed it keeps putting itself behind Gods names and its own meaning behind the scriptures/words when I hear or say the word of God it is very controlling and tormenting and deceiving ive tried giving my life to christ when I pray I cant hwar my thoughts I hear what its saying I cant think of who Christ is it puts itself behind the words. When it showed itself to me I went to see this counselor but she spoke in tongues and had different beliefs she gave me a list of things to say to give my life to the lord but while I was saying the words I couldn’t think of who Christ was it was putting itself in my thoughts behind the words its accusing me of giving to it its making out I need to admit it first then repent of it ive renounced what I said and ask Jesus Christ to come into my life I dont have that repentant conviction its like its stopping me from surrendering to Christ from faith. Ive had people fast and pray but nothing is working what do you recommend?

    • Pauline – I am sorry this took so long. I curse the devil of torment over you in Jesus Name! I speak grace and freedom to you. You will be able to receive Christ Jesus and you will be delivered in Jesus Name.

      If there is any you have to repent of do it to the best of your ability. But you do not have to clean yourself for God. You go to Him and He cleans you. He loves you and want to help you. The God of Heaven will hear you and forgive you. He will cleanse you of ALL unrighteousness.

  • I also am needing prayer they say I have graves disease and thyroid issue and it effects my whole body including heart and I asked for prayer for the healing of my body and restoring of my mind in Jesus name.Thank you.The enemy is hard at work trying to break me down I just also need strength to get through this

    This is probably different than most healing requests but I need GOD to heal my mouth,sores in it. I have dentures which I have struggled with for six years. They have left sores,red spots in my mouth. They weren’t that great, I have none now since they finally broke. I am having a new set made by a specialist. I keep rinsing my mouth but I can’t get all the sores and red spots to leave. This has been very difficult to deal with all these years. The dentist that I went to told me there was nothing wrong with them and to go get another medication so I could wear them. I couldn’t believe he said that. I went back to the oral surgeon who put implants in my mouth and he told me to go to this specialist and so I did. It is costing a lot of money but we came up with it. It bothers me every single day and I feel angry at dentists and myself for having my teeth out. I had to keep having work continually. I thought this is what I should do. So I have a lot of guilt too. It has made my life miserable. So since I am getting new ones please pray that they work out and that GOD heals my gums from the damage that was done. I found out that there aren’t a lot of honest dentists out there and most of them just think about money and won’t do dental work on you if you don’t have the money. So right now I am without teeth and won’t leave my house. I hope GOD heals my mouth and things turn around because this has been awful. I need to get back into socializing but this has really stopped me from doing much of that.

    • Gabru

  • erwin

    i need prayers… i want god in my life forever…

    • Erwin – God bless you. Read this article and say the prayer from your heart out loud – Salvation. Once you pray that prayer in faith you are a ‘new creation’ on the inside. God then lives inside of you and He is your God. The remainder of your Christian walk will be finding out exactly what that means. Send an email to me if you have any more questions. My email address is on the About page. Congratulations – Rex

    Reading this has helped me draw closer and rely on God for everything.

    I have a tumor that has been growing for years and up until now has it been worrying and concerning me because of its size and hardness. I am in my early 20′s and after a recent doctor’s visit I was told I need surgery. I knew in my heart I didn’t want to undergo surgery again especially while in a foreign country. The entire time I kept thinking to myself I have to get surgery and this is what I have to do. All the while, my church friends and small group said I need to pray and have faith. This was hard for me. I believe God earnestly, with faith, that He will provide for certain things in my life…but I always felt like healing wouldn’t be something He would do for me- it always seemed like that stuff happened to other people.
    But I know I have to have faith after all the scripture you placed in this article. Reading this, having quiet prayer time alone, and recently starting to read and meditate on God’s Word (I honestly never liked reading the Bible, I’d do everything BUT that!), I am seeing God’s power, works and Word in a new light. Through my circumstance and wanting to grow spiritually in God, I am yearning to be more Christ-like in all aspects of my life. I love that fact that God gives us second chances (and then some) and hears us whenever we call out to Him. Knowing this, the days when I am overwhelmed with “feelings” I am reminded of Christian songs, lyrically perfect for the situation, to refocus my mind (soon I will be scriptural perfect to refocus my mind…once I start memorizing) on the Truth of God.
    Because of the growth God has given me thus far, it reminds me of the little faith I had back then and how I should remember them. Those times of little faith came because God spoke to me. I justified them then, but I know it was Christ now.
    For instance, before going abroad I was told by my doctor to buy these supplements to improve my situation or at least see if it will. I felt pressured and after a moment told her I don’t want to buy them because I believe God will heal me (I don’t remember if i said “heal” but I know I thought it). She replied saying that God also allows for modern medicine as aids to people…I get what she was saying and I later bought the pills but I knew in my heart I should have trusted what I said because of the little faith I had in Jesus. But I allowed her to convince me. =/ At work, with friends and family they know of my situation. I explain it to them with an empty heart. I tell them I will get surgery as they make suggestions and recommendations. I would tell them of my previous surgery 3 years before of cysts growing and how I am familiar with the process of surgery. I would explain the pain and healing time and such with an empty heart. I say an empty heart because they were just words. I can vividly remember talking to a co-worker and explaining everything to her and hearing in my head, basically, “why are you speaking these words? Why do you not believe? This is not my will, it is yours…” I would speak empty words to people because instead of speaking in faith, I spoke what logically made sense or what was expected for sympathy. But then later ask for God’s healing with empty heart and words.
    A co-worker I often attend church with agreed to have her pastor pray for me. He did and she later translated what he said: “Your surgery will be perfect and you will be fine. But if you don’t have surgery you will worry because you do not have faith.” To this day it rings in my head in unison with a testimony my aunt told me of a girl who had faith that God would heal her cancer, and He did. It bothered me because I knew that was and is what is holding me back. The first time her pastor prayed for me, he said my womb was fine but I need to be anointed. I was angry and felt lied to because I knew technically my uterus was not fine and that I have a tumor growing on it. I say technically because despite its size, hardness and location, I feel very little pain. And that pain only comes during that time of the month and even THAT is way less pain then what I was use to experiencing. Otherwise, I had no faith in His prayer nor the healing of God over me then. After going back and hearing the surgery would be fine but if I don’t get it I will worry because I had no faith…I just kept thinking, “I don’t want surgery!” But I still didn’t understand and dismissed what he said about anointing.
    Now, as I draw closer to God, I see indefinitely where I lack and fall. God has spoken to me the whole time as I spoke faithless words to Him and others. I don’t want to do that anymore. Reading this article and looking up the scriptures and reading the passages of some scriptures helps me understand who Jesus is in God and how He has never changed. I let myself be led by my physical symptoms and little faith to believe He wouldn’t heal me. It was stated in the article (I can’t find where) that Jesus said physicians are for those who are sick. I know I have a tumor growing but I am not sick. I am not in pain and the way it is growing seemingly obstructs nothing so far. Through faith in Jesus, I know He will heal me. It is a scary thought for me for two reasons. 1. Actually witnessing and EXPERIENCING God’s power and 2. the fear the devil keep trying to instill in me with that God won’t prevail.
    Currently I am stepping out in faith. I am confessing my sins, forgiving and trying to live a Christ-like life. I want God to heal me and not just hope that He would, because I was that girl…the one who would hope and say, “if it be God’s will”. Between now and my scheduled surgery date I want to devote my time growing in the Lord, meditating, praying, reading, utilizing and understanding scripture and believing with FAITH. It is difficult because the devil knows my weaknesses but I want to be equipped with God’s armor that he will not hold me down and convince me of his lies.
    I praise our Lord and Savior of how He has brought me here today. Being in a new country pursuing a dream based on prayer I know this part of my life would be tremendous. I want to experience God healing and power through Jesus directly so that I can be a witness and be a living testimony. I know just having the will and drive to want to be more like Him is a testimony but I ask for God to reveal Himself to me through His healing power so my faith can be stronger in this area of my life. I thank you God for where you have brought me and how you have kept me since I was born. I pray and believe in your power regardless of how the devil makes me “feel”.

    I can’t wait to reply to this post with the good news and faithfulness of Christ our Lord because I will not need surgery. God, in the Name of Jesus will heal me!

    • Laura

      Hi Monzi – I had a problem with fibroids, hemorrhaging, became anemic, had transfusions, and had a heart attack. The doctor wanted me to have surgery for the fibroids (non cancerous). I prayed and waited for an answer. I knew God didn’t want me to have the surgery. I asked what ever God wanted me to do to show me and I would do it. I was led to take “organic apple cider vinegar with the mother” both Heinz and Braggs make it, 2 tablespoons in a glass of filtered water every morning. It shrunk my fibroids and the doctor cancelled the surgery. Ask your doctor if it will be harmful in any way to you first. Praise God for his healing.

  • RTP

    Lord Please forgive my sins. Father I know it is all my fault and I am in this position because I choose to not follow your word. Father I am sorry and in need of your forgiveness. Lord please heal me. Father I know you can heal me. I know it is your will. Lord I ask for forgiveness and healing today in Jesus name.

  • Mystelle

    The Lord Jesus Christ generally healed instantly. Matt. 15:30-31 God you have done such grateful miracles, if you can heal my acne and facial hair on my so that it is all removed. God hear my prayer. Matt. 15:30-31

    • Mystelle – Whether is it instant for over time the end result is the same – Healed and whole. I agree with you in Jesus Name for your healing. I also speak love and favor and acceptance and grace all over you in every area of your life. We love you and God loves you. Continue speaking and meditating on His word, it will produce the faith in your heart for all you desire in life. God bless

    Please pray that I will be healed from my rare illness and that my children do not have the same mutation

  • LE3

    IM CONFUSED. Why is the right hand man of God, who has saved MILLIONS OF SOULS FROM GOING INTO HELL, WHO HAS BROUGHT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO GOD, riddled with CANCER???? Why does Billy Graham have lots of CANCERS??? I thought that the devil is the author of confusion, im so confused can you answer me please

    • Agnes says that he had prostate cancer. This is the only type of cancer I found recorded that he had. I don’t know the source of where you are getting your information about Billy Graham having many cancers. Yes the devil is the one that causes and brings confusion. Don’t walk into his trap.

      1 Corinthians 14:33 God is not a God of disorder/confusion but a God of peace.

      James 3:16 Wherever there is jealousy and rivalry, there is disorder/confusion and every kind of evil.

      I Peter 5: 7 Turn all your anxiety over to God because he cares for you. 8 Keep your mind clear, and be alert. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion as he looks for someone to devour. 9 Be firm in the faith and resist him, knowing that other believers throughout the world are going through the same kind of suffering. 10 God, who shows you his kindness and who has called you through Christ Jesus to his eternal glory, will restore you, strengthen you, make you strong, and support you as you suffer for a little while.

      Job of the Bible had his share of trials because he feared some things might happen and then they came to pass. He suffered greatly and then repented after arguing with God and having friends that blamed him for all the wrong reasons. God restored his life back to him and blessed him with more than he had at the beginning. Many people today are not aware that they need to follow God’s guidelines for living in order to stay healthy. We must search the Word of God for answers on how to live. Most of us do not go to the Word for His answers instead we stay ignorant and suffer and sometimes we die early unless we change. Most churches do not preach the whole Bible (healing, miracles, etc.) and how to stay healthy. Many people are not willing to find out on their own or ask for help in this area of life. Many live in fear and just try to ignore their symptoms. God does not want us to be ignorant but wise. He says ask for wisdom and I will give it to you freely.

      James 1:5 If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and he will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn’t find fault with them. 6 When you ask for something, don’t have any doubts. A person who has doubts is like a wave that is blown by the wind and tossed by the sea. 7 A person who has doubts shouldn’t expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 A person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time and can’t make up his mind about anything.

      Sometimes we curse ourselves; we have been given a free will to choose whether to bless or curse.

      Proverbs 18:20 A person’s speaking ability provides for his stomach. His talking provides him a living. 21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love to talk will have to eat their own words.

      We also put wrong things in and on our bodies that create disease.

      Hosea_4:6 I will destroy my people because they are ignorant. You have refused to learn, so I will refuse to let you be my priests. You have forgotten the teachings of your God, so I will forget your children.

      II Corinthians_2:11 I don’t want Satan to outwit us. After all, we are not ignorant about Satan’s scheming.

    Sandy Burress, read Malachi 3:6-12, 6 says I am the LORD I do not change and remember we also are sons of Jacob through Jesus. There He made mention that we rob Him in tithes and offerings. How come tithing is under the law and a curse while offering is ok? Both are made mention there. Tithing like offering is given for the work of God. Remember Jesus told the young ruler who came to Him go sell all you have and give to the poor and come follow me. Tithing like offering is giving unto God, how can giving to God be a curse? Jesus in the New Testament never condemned tithing, remember He came to fulfill not to destroy the Law or the Prophets. Himself paid tax which was a law. The the curse of the law Christ redeemed us from I want to believe has to do with sin and its consequences.
    God spoke about tithing and offerings to be given, it does not matter weather in the old or New Testament, it brings blessings, it is a covenant and God is a covenant keeping God. Don’t allow the devil to steal your blessing by making you believe it is a curse. It also takes faith to give to God and God blesses any kind of faith given to Him Remember tithe is paid to support God’s work and not for the pastors. As a pastor try it with your congregation and see what God will do, for He says in Malachi ; try Me now in this, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing…… Sounds to me like a real blessing and not a curse. God bless you

  • I am obeying Him ten commandments, because of sleeping pills, I leave bed in the afternoon, thus miss the morning service. There is no evening service in the church I attend, still I go for the care cell meetings each week. I read His word but because I don’t understand meanings of many words, I follow many things/words but only if I read, say a whole sentence. I have taken baptism in 1985 before and after which I was getting fits, on an average of every 5th day but now the average is, I get a minor fit once in around 40 days. I believe, He has begun healing me by a great extent. I feel that its time for me to believe that even the minor fits I have, no saliva is any longer coming out of my mouth; I’m no longer falling down the mountains since more than a decade gone, nor fall while walking or standing. How I long that the medicines prescribed, the amount of money to be paid for them are free for me as my doctor sister pays for them, the doctor doesn’t charge me any amount. Even though I’ve got healed of almost all the things mentioned in Matthew 17: 14 to 21, but still, I long to get free of the jerk or a feeling that scares me for around 5 to 10 seconds too to get over, as read that I need to go on believing< He has healed me, may the jerk or feeling continue for an unknown time, I go on thanking the Lord my Savior each day. If there are some additional things I must stop doing, not that what they are, if you could tell me to give up, I'd be very grateful to you. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't do any driving; if at all, I like to drink cold drinks daily, could this be the thing I should give up for all times so to get healed completely?

    • Agnes

      If you are drinking diet soda pop of any kind that could cause your problems. Aspartame causes problems… read Renounce any false gods, spirits of fear, confusion and infirmity. Isa 19:14 “The LORD has mingled within her a spirit of confusion, and they will make Egypt stagger in all its deeds, as a drunken man staggers in his vomit.” Tell them to leave you. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with his wisdom, love, fire and power in place of them so that you can live in victory. Mat 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

      Keep reading the word of God out loud.

      1Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”

      2Timothy 1:7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

      Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
      29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

      Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

      John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

  • How good it is to honor and worship the living God to the highest! It is so good to read these wonderful comments by all you faithfuls of the Lord Jesus Christ. Healing is an entitlement received through FAITH. After every healing, the Apostles and even Christ himself declared “Your faith has made you well”. May the love of Christ be with you all in every circumstance.

  • JD

    visit also to help build your faith. They help me a lot God all.

  • For those who are reading this, Jesus said my burden is light. This method of salvation by Velmer Gardner sounds like a gospel of works to me. In the book of Mark 5:1 we see a man who is not a Christian and out of his mind. He was incapable of saving himself let alone follow some of the scripts mentioned by Velmor Gardner. If you follow this way then your burden will increase. Remember they travel across land and see to win a single convert and make them twice the sons of hell as they are. With their fancy words they worm their way into weak willed women’s homes.

    • Gordan – It is called the requirement of faith. Yes, there were instances when Jesus would heal someone without their involvement if they were incapable of helping themselves, like a madman or a child. But most of the time when someone was healed Jesus would say something like, ‘your faith has made you whole.’ Growing faith and walking in faith are anything but the type of ‘works’ you are referring to.

      Paul talks negatively about the self-work of relying on one’s own so-called righteous actions for salvation instead of resting solely on the works of Christ. Those are not the type of works we are talking about. Self-works are a far cry from the necessary works of obedience to the faith.

      James says that ‘faith without works is dead (inoperative).’ So, some works are necessary to activate our faith. These kinds of works could be best described as ‘corresponding actions.’ God expects us to act according to our faith. This is called the walk of faith, or just simply believing.

      You don’t have a clue on what we’re talking about, or for that matter, what you are even talking about. But you are quick to accuse us of making converts ‘twice sons of Hell,’ or preying on ‘weak willed women.’ Wow, pretty mean-hearted religious stuff you are spewing. The ‘scripts’ you refer to are nothing less than the actual word of God, which we are to ‘keep in our mouths so that our way will be prosperous.’ When you speak His word out, it is a way of planting it in your heart, so that it may grow up to become a harvest of faith. Watch out for what you accuse upon others, it may come back on you.

      Yes, our burden is meant to be light, but only when we take them to Him in faith, and walk on believing Him. We don’t save ourselves but our ‘faith can make us whole.’ Build people up, don’t tear them down, and don’t be so quick to judge. The Bible says a lot about that too.

  • Sandy Burress

    I was reminded to think of my healing the same as my salvation…it is not dependent on my feeling. Jesus told the Pharisees concerning the paralytic “What is easier to say, your sins are forgiven or take up your bed and walk, but that you may know that the Son of God has power to forgive sins on the earth”. HE said to the paralytic “take up your bed and walk.” In other words the healing and the forgiveness are synonymous. The same is true in the Old Testament in Psalms 103:2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits– Psalms 103:3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,

    I agree with Revolutionary about tithing though…it is Old Testament, and there was never a tithe without a mediator to give it to. I am a pastor, so I would benefit from teaching it. I have spent many hours and years researching it. if a person wants to be it, but how can we say that he is curse if he doesn’t when gal 3:13 says: Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”

  • I was healed 2000 years ago by Jesus Christ’s stripes. Healing for my soul and body is mine. The supreme price was paid. Praise be to the Seed of the woman that came and bruised the head of the serpent. By his stripes I was healed. The devil is a bluffer. He was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities, chastisement of my peace was upon Him and by his stripes I was healed. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ my High Priest of my confession/profession. GBU

  • Revolutionary

    what do you mean if. There is no place in the bible where Jesus was not willing. don’t let anybody if or maybe or any other word of doubt.

  • Revolutionary

    What do you mean IF He’s willing. There is >>>no place<<>”Ask in faith not wavering.” “All the promises are in Him yes and in Him amen.”<>Overcome!!!<>>faith.<<<

  • Bo

    Thank you for the encouraging words.I felt much better after reading this. I rebuke sickeness in the name of Jesus and believe if Hes willing I am healed, Im casting all my cares on Him… Amen

  • T.O.M

    The lord has completed his will
    prasie the name of the lord. All of us our healed in jesus name amen.

  • Revolutionary

    You say God will not heal heal us if we are not tithing. Tithing is unscriptual under the new covenant. The law and tithing is Levitical law. In Christ we are dead to the law Gal,2:19. Gal 3:10 (KJV) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth NOT IN ALL THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN in the book of the law to do them. >>If we are going to live by the law WE MUST LIVE BY ALL OF IT.<<
    Other than the man Jesus told that something worse might come on him, i know of no scripture that even hints at our losing our healing. Where is it?

    • Jennie

      Your statement sounded good but tithing is also mentioned in the new testament. Read Mathew. We’re not under the law however God wants every aspect of our heart and money is a huge part. Money is mentioned more times in the Bible than Heaven
