Power, Miracles, and Healing

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (Luke 4:18-19) My prayers are powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like me. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. (James 5:16-18) Everything is possible for him who believes. (Mark 9:23)

Because of my faith in Jesus, I will do the things that He did while on the earth. I will do even greater things. I may ask Jesus for anything in His name, and He will do it. (John 14:12-14) Because I believe, these signs will accompany me: In Jesus’ name I will drive out demons; I will speak in new tongues; I will place my hands on sick people, and they will get well. (Mark 16:17-18)

I pray that the eyes of my heart may be continually enlightened in order that I may know God’s incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. (Ephesians 1:18-21) I have this treasure in a jar of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from me. (2 Corinthians 4:7)

I will praise the Lord with all of my being, and will forget none of His benefits-that He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases; that He redeems my life from the pit and crowns me with love and compassion; that He satisfies my desires with good things so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:2-5)

Now, Lord, consider the threats of those who don’t know You and enable Your servants to speak Your word with great boldness. Stretch out Your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus. (Acts 4:29-30)
