When You Pray for Someone's Healing, Do You Need all the Details?

A reader asks; "Do you have to know all the details of what needs to be healed in order to pray for healing for someone?"

This is a good question, for which many want to know the answer. No, we do not need to know all the details to pray for one another for healing. During healing lines, I have already given instruction to the people that now is not the time for a long explanation for what they need healing from. It's not necessary for me to know all the details of what has happened for me to pray in faith for their healing. And you do not need to know all the details either.

God's Word tells us that we are to pray a prayer of faith. It doesn't say that we have to know all the details before we pray for the sick, but to pray in faith–believing. "And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven" (James 5:15).

This reader writes asking how to pray for her husband who suffered from a stroke. Pray this way; "In the name of Jesus, I renounce the spirit of death and the power behind this stroke. I speak life into his brain cells and command his brain to be re-created and made whole for the glory of the Lord, and all negative side effects be reversed for God's glory, amen."

Now what do you do when you have prayed in faith and the manifestation is not instant? Do you continue to pray and ask for healing?

No. Now is the time to use the prophetic power of our words and speak words that nurture the healing along. When you speak a confession of faith over yourself or someone else for healing, you want to be as specific as you can be. And speak it out often in faith. For example, "In the name of Jesus, my husband's brain cells are recreated and function normally. By faith, there is no paralysis in his body. He can think clearly, communicate with clarity, there is no speech delay, his tongue is loosed. There is no paralysis in his body, he is strong and free to walk with ease, and his arms and hands are free to move as they are created to move. By the power of the blood of Jesus' there is no lack in his body, amen and amen."

And this reader also wants to know, "How do I help him to believe and speak life over his own body?" Pray, "In the name of Jesus, I pray that my husband will be willing to learn how to believe and activate his faith for his own healing." Along with being a source of encouragement to him, pray that the Holy Spirit will hover over him, and that others will come into his life and speak a word of encouragement over him, and he will receive all that the Lord has for him.
