Prayers for Healing–Keep it Short

Lately, I’ve been discovering and learning more about how to release healing in Jesus’ name.

One of the things I’ve been learning is the spirit in which I conducted my prayers. I remember at one point, my prayers for healing were some combination of the following: intense, long, involving medical details (that I think God doesn’t know??), and passive.

In the last few weeks, I’ve seen instant healing on several occasions and have noticed that my prayers have changed.

The most important of those changes is that my prayers for healing average around 10-15 seconds now. They’re quite brief.

I’ve been learning that it’s not the length of the prayers release the power of God, it’s rather, my authority and position in Christ. Therefore my prayers are short, terse, authoritative, and expectant.

They’re spoken from a place of understanding who I am before Jesus as a temple of the Spirit of power. It’s from understanding that I am commanded by Jesus to command sicknesses to leave and for healing to take place. It’s from understanding that if Jesus is Lord over every principle and sickness, it doesn’t require the messenger to be very decorated, just merely to be tapped into that authority.

So, if you pray for someone, I’d recommend keeping it short and authoritative.
