Q. How Do I Receive Healing?
A. The gift of healings (plural) may be received in many different forms. However, the number one way of receiving your healing is by praying “The prayer of Faith.” This is a prayer that is only prayed ONE time.
First, find several healing scriptures, stories and promises that speak to your heart to build your faith.
Second, you must pray according to the Word of God, believing that it’s God’s desire for you to be healed.
Third, stand on these scriptures.
Mark 11:23-24 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
You must address the mountain (the problem) However, you do not speak the problem, you speak the solution believing in your heart
Next, you must confess it with your mouth
Last, it must be according to the Word of God.
You must believe that God’s Word is true and anything contrary to His Word is a lie. You can confess that you are a Boeing 747 and run up and down the runway until you’re blue in the face and you’ll never get off the ground—because it’s not according to the Word of God.
Last, you must desire to be healed, believe you are healed when you pray and not walk by sight. 1 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) If we don’t walk by what we see, then we can’t go by what we hear, touch, taste or feel.
If you are on medication and pray and believe God for total healing, DO NOT stop taking your medicine. After you are completely healed, your body will begin to reject the medication. Also, Healing is a process, while miracles are immediate. Such as: there are no accounts of eyes being healed in the Bible—eyes were always miracles because they were instant.
Don’t get in a hurry while standing in faith for healing, sometimes it manifests slowly. Nevertheless, do not come out of faith once you enter in.

I will seek it yet again.” Proverbs 23:29-35
