My Body That Is Sick Unto Death
By Charles S., Birmingham, AL
Dear Father in Heaven:
I thank you that you are my Father, because of
the Blood of Jesus, your only begotten Son that was shed for my sins. I
thank you for that High Priest who has passed through the heavens, and
has paid for my redemption with His own life -the just for the unjust. I
thank you that in Him I stand complete, justified freely by your grace.
I praise you that your Word declares that because of Jesus, I can come
boldly unto the throne of grace, that I would obtain mercy, and find
grace in time of need.
Lord, in thy presence, I humbly bow, and ask that you search my heart
for any unclean thing that is hidden there. As I make confession of my
sins, I ask that you turn the searchlight of your Word through your Holy
Spirit on my heart, and I will be quick to confess that which is
displeasing to you, and in humble reliance on your Holy Spirit to turn
from my wicked ways, and to seek your face.
Lord, even as I ask you for healing of my soul from the sins I have
committed and their effects, I also ask for physical healing of my body
that is sick unto death.
I acknowledge my sin before you, and freely admit that my sin was the
doorway that this disease took to enter my body. In repentance therefore
I call on the Name of the Lord in faith in the sustitutionary of Jesus
and reach forth to touch, as it were, the hem of your garment unworthy
as I am.
But you are worthy, and it is in Your Name, Lord Jesus, as my High
Priest, I make this request to Father. I ask for this good gift in order
that you may be glorified in my life, and that many may see, and fear,
and put their trust in you.
I ask in faith, believing that I shall receive, according to Your
will, as You see fit.
I thank you for hearing me, forgiving me my sins, and for initiating
the process of healing both on my soul and my body.
Lord, even as You have blessed me, please use me to now go and bless
others, to give them the cup of water in Jesus' Name, even as You have
let me come to You and drink.
Thank you for Your grace . . . and for the help in time of need.
In Jesus' Name, to Whom be all the glory.
