Acts 28:8-9 His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after PRAYER, placed his hands on him and HEALED him.  When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured.
As many of you know Lady Malinda Sapp, wife of Pastor Marvin Sapp, is battling with stage four colon cancer. He has asked that Thursday be a day of 24 hour prayer for her. We know that we serve a living God and the power of healing and restoration rest in His hands. If it be His will. She will recover.
The idea of corporate prayer for her is wonderful, I ask that while you lift her up in prayer today that you also remember all those who are sick and in need of a Healing touch.
Lord, look upon those who are sick with eyes of mercy, may your healing hand rest upon us, may your lifegiving powers flow into every cell of our bodies and into the depths of our souls, cleansing, purifying, restoring us to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom. Amen.
Mark 1:40-41 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.”  Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I AM WILLING,” he said. “Be clean!”
