Better Prayer Brings Better Health

Prayer is mankind's approach to God. But if healing is always God's will, as the mission of Christ Jesus abundantly proved, and yet prayer does not always result in healing, is it not reasonable to suppose that some ways of praying are better than others?

We know that Jesus prayed often, that he sometimes continued all night in prayer. And as he walked among afflicted men and women, he healed them instantly. This was unmistakably the evidence of Christ, or Truth, of Immanuel, "God with us," revealing itself through the human Jesus as compassionate power.

The same power is with us today. "His compassions fail not. They are new every morning." Lam. 3:22, 23; Our prayer does not have to change God or win Him over with pleading. What the Almighty was in Galilee when Jesus prayed to Him, He is now as we pray to Him. If we want healing, we can be sure we are wanting what He can give us.
