James 5:14 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future There are many more
Obedience to God leads to health Ex 15:26, Love of God protects from diseases Dt 7:15, The word of God heals Pro 4:22, God is the restorer of our health Jer 30:17, We are healed by the wounds of Jesus Isa 53:5, Those who return to The Lord will be healed Jer. 3:22, 17:14, Hos 6:1, God heals all our diseases Ps 103:3.
Under the New Covenant healing, miracle healing is always available to all those who have faith unless God has a higher purpose to glorify His Name through someone's life by not healing them. In Mark 11:22-25, faith is described as what we need to receive anything from God which includes healing. Mk 11:23 says "whosoever" or meaning "anyone" which does not restrict the promises to the hearers only. Paul was preaching Acts 14:7-10 is a clear demonstration of how a person can, in the New Testament, have faith for miracle healing.
Here are some to add the the above scriptures; 1 Peter 2:24 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. NIV Matt 8:17 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: "He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases Ps 103:3 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, NIV These are only a few, one thing you may want to keep in mind is that even though these scriptures speak about healing and may teach you that God has and does heal they may not be the scriptures for you. A pastor friend of mine had a very sick son, and they prayed and trusted God then one day when they were READING their bible they got a healing scripture from God to speak over their son. They believed God and stood on the scripture and their son was healed. When my friend was giving his testimony he told us the scripture verse, I looked it up and pointed out to him that it was not a healing scripture as we understand it. At that moment he realized that is was not a healing scripture but did see that we can get a word from God and it can bring healing. If you need healing in your body then I would encourage you to take the advise of the above writers and read those scriptures to have a better understanding of healing. Then read your bible and ask God to give you a scripture to stand on for your healing. He is always faithful to answer our prayers. Go to His word and you will be amazed but you must read it to get it. (Understanding)
I share a passage that I love, (Jacqueline Barnett already shared James 4:14) maybe my all-time favorite: The Prayer of Faith James 4:13 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. [When I was really sick, I called the elders & was healed! It works!] 17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. But Heaven is the place of ultimate healing-- Revelation 21:4 --"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." Hear the song by the Gaither Vocal Band, "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be," for their lyrics: All pain and all suffering forgotten And all tears will be turned into joy
