You have Permission
“If you love Jesus, you have permission to pray for the sick.” (Bill Johnson, April 9, 2016, The Call|Azusa Now) You have all of the permission you need from God to work the works that Jesus did. You received that permission the day you said yes to Him for the very first time. When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, you entered His Kingdom and you received everything He has to offer. Let’s get to it!
“We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work.” (John 9:4; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Thank the Lord that you have permission to work the works that Jesus did.
Read John chapter 9 and Acts chapters 3 and 4. Miracles open doors to share the gospel.
Ask the Lord to give you clear moments and great boldness to pray for the sick—outside the walls of the church, as you go about your regular day.
Be ready to tell people about this Jesus that healed them. Watch His name spread from one person to another across this land!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, thank you for the reminder that I don’t need any more permission to pray for the sick than what You have already given me in Your Word. Healing the sick makes hearts open to hear more about Jesus. Give me a divine setup today to pray for someone who is sick. The results are Yours, but I am believing You want to heal the sick and that You want to use me as a conduit of Your love to others so that they will worship You, too! Let Jesus’ name be raised up everywhere across this nation! Amen.
Jesus loves me and has already given me permission to heal the sick!
