Biblical passages employed as healing prayers
Julio C. Rivas, CS
“…The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Love-God is omnipresent and it shelters me wherever I am.
“Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that I have given unto you ….” Divine Truth understood acts as omnipresent, efficacious and comprehensive healing power.
“The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand.” Divine Science reveals that we are subsumed by Love, and empowered with divine abilities.
“Thy faith hath saved thee.” Spirit’s preeminence is my anchor and might. This apprehension cancels every antagonistic, material lie. It generates health, bounty and love in me and in every welcoming heart.
“He that dwelleth in God dwelleth in love, and God him.” Christ ignites me with the radiant fire of divine Love. This holy fire burns away all material arguments against Spirit-given health, fulfillment and advancement. It elides jealous, fickle, possessive, selfish, fearful and prideful temptations.
“Go -- wash in the pool of Siloam.” Christ anoints us with spiritual sense and courage. It rights our minds, emotions, bodies and relationships. It cleanses us of fear, doubt, guilt, self-condemnation, illness, lack and personal sense.
“… as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God ….” When we receive Truth’s ideas we are blessed with its healing wisdom and authority.
“… and “of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” We can feel and impart Love’s all-subsuming grace.
Our spiritual comprehension is “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God (each of us) may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” Our spiritual self is of Spirit, and it reflects the riches of Spirit.
“Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” The magnificence and purity of Christ turns us into witnesses of divine grace. We rejoice in how the “… sick healed, the sorrowing are comforted, and the sinning are reformed.”
