Invitation to Pray with SVHR May 21, 2024 & Newsletter

Recognizing the Battle Lines of Illness

Smith Wigglesworth identified the war that illness thrusts us into. Being ill forces us into a battle for life – at the very point where our energy levels are diminished from the “work” of helping our bodies fight the disease.

Jesus labeled the devil a thief who comes to steal, kill, and destroy (see John 10:10). in the same verse, Jesus’ lays out His goals for His followers to have life and have it more abundantly. These objectives put the believer in the middle, having to choose which way to learn and which perspective to adopt with our words, minds, and imaginations. It is our job to be vigilant against all the strategies of our enemy, the Devil, in spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical arenas.

Specifically, Wigglesworth writes “If I cannot make a person who is suffering from disease righteously indignant again the condition, I cannot help him. If I can make every sufferer know that suffering, disease, and all these things are the workings of the Devil, I can help him.” Being aware of the battle, and who’s on whose side becomes crucial for victory.

Smith goes on to argue that one needs to step into the “full time of the life of the manifestation of God. Your new nature has no corruption in it. Eternal life is not just during your lifetime; it is forever. You are regenerated by the power of the Word of God, and it is in you as an incorruptible force, taking you on from victory to victory until death itself can be overcome, until sin has no authority, until disease could not be in the body. This is a living fact by the Word of God.”

Wigglesworth ends this talk by saying that Christians need to focus on the things above and keep our whole spirit alive in God. Colossians 3:2 reads, “Set your mind and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth” (AMPC). This is particularly challenging when medical advice and medical prescriptions consume our thinking for many hours of the day. Nonetheless, Wigglesworth exhorts the believer to, “let your inheritance be so full of divine life that you live above the world and all its thoughts and cares.” It takes courage to achieve this goal. As we navigate the conditions of our illness, we take comfort in remembering that God does not gives us more than we can handle. We can keep asking Him to show us the path through the storm (even when we only see one step ahead) until we get to the other side.

The Healing Rooms teams stand ready to pray and listen to God on behalf of all who come. All appointments are confidential. We also have resources on many topics from others that have gone before us and weathered many difficult trials. Come and borrow the faith of the team members to fan the flames of faith in whatever situation we might find ourselves.

God Answers Prayer

Since our last Healing Rooms Open Hours:

We had Training on May 4, 2024, for several new people interested in joining the prayer team. We saw people healed on the spot of many different things. Seeing people get healed builds the faith of everyone in the room. 

I wanted to share a prophetic word released by Rick Taylor, the National Director of the International Association of Healing Rooms. His Healing Room is located in Santa Maria, CA.

“God is moving in new and powerful ways right now and it’s going to increase over the Summer and I’m believing for a mighty move of outpouring by this Fall.  It’s already begun here in Santa Maria. We are seeing lots of salvations, over fifty in the last few weeks! There’s an increase in healing and miracles as well as an increase of people coming for ministry. We do HR’s four days a week in Santa Maria, and it’s been a challenge because of the numbers of people coming desperate for a touch of God! So, we are expanding our teams, bringing in and training more ministry warriors to keep up with the demand.

It’s time! Be encouraged! It’s begun! We have entered into increase! 

The Lord spoke to us at the beginning of the year, that this year is the year of “New Beginnings”, a year of “Breakthrough”, a year of “Open Heavens” and a year of “New Wine”! I want to encourage you to Dream Big, Ask Big, Believe Big, and you will Receive Big!”

The teams prayed for jobs, interviews, moving decisions, students studying for final exams, finding destiny, back pain, neck pain, sleep instead of insomnia, decisions about work/ministry, adult children relationships, trauma relief, chemotherapy side effects to diminish, stamina, marriage challenges, mental well-being, help and wisdom in caregiving, financial breakthroughs, ear issues, blood platelet irregularities, Lyme disease symptoms, and sibling relationships.
