21 Days of Prayer and Fasting | DAY 12





 

DAY 12

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3



PRESS PAUSE: Before you do anything else, take a moment to reflect on and celebrate all the Lord did in you, for you, and spoke to you yesterday.  


READ: Acts 3:1-11

In a broken and hurting world, the need for healing – physically, emotionally, and spiritually – is ever-present. We all carry wounds, scars, and burdens that weigh us down and hinder our ability to live fully and abundantly. But the good news is that God is a God of restoration and healing. He is the Great Physician who brings healing to the brokenhearted, restoration to the weary, and wholeness to the wounded.  Psalm 147:3 says plainly, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds". Today, as we dive in, I pray that as we explore the theme of healing, we will find our faith being built in seeking God's healing touch and experiencing the transformative power of His love in our lives.

Healing is a multifaceted process that encompasses physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our being. It is not simply the removal of pain or the resolution of problems, but the restoration of wholeness and well-being in all areas of our lives. So often we want the healing without the dealing. But God has to deal with the source of our pain — the rejection, the hurt, or perhaps the betrayal — to heal us. As we embark on this journey of healing, let us remember that God is the source of all healing, the One who brings light to our darkness, hope to our despair, and restoration to our brokenness. Allowing us to, as we read of the man healed in Acts 3, walk, leap, and praise God in celebration of our healing. 

As you seek your own healing from the Lord, here are 5 steps you can take when seeking healing and restoration in the Lord.

1. Acknowledge Your Need for Healing: The first step towards healing is acknowledging our brokenness and need for God's healing touch. Take time to reflect on areas of your life that need healing – whether it be physical illness, emotional wounds, spiritual struggles, or relational brokenness. Surrender these areas to God in prayer, inviting His healing presence to bring restoration and wholeness.

2. Seek God's Word for Healing: The Bible is a treasure trove of healing promises, words of comfort, and stories of restoration. Spend time in God's Word daily, seeking out passages that speak to your current season of healing. Allow God's promises to speak truth and hope into your life, guiding you towards healing and wholeness.

3. Practice Self-Care: Healing requires tending to the needs of our body, mind, and spirit. Practice self-care by prioritizing rest, healthy eating, exercise, and spiritual disciplines. Take time to care for yourself - nurturing your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Listen to your body and emotions, seeking out activities that bring peace, joy, and restoration to your soul.

4. Lean on Your Support System: Healing is often a communal process, requiring the support and encouragement of others. Lean on your support system – friends, family, mentors, and spiritual leaders – for companionship, guidance, and prayer. Openly and honestly share your needs and struggles with trusted individuals, allowing them to walk alongside you on your journey towards healing.

5. Embrace Forgiveness and Grace: Healing often involves releasing past hurts, bitterness, and resentment in exchange for forgiveness, grace, and healing. Extend forgiveness to yourself and others, letting go of the burdens that weigh you down and hinder your ability to heal. Embrace God's grace and mercy, allowing His love to heal and restore your wounded heart.

Today, as we pray for healing, may we remember the promise in Psalm 103 that reminds us there is great healing coming for all who place their faith in Jesus. It is significant. It is valuable to hold on to the fact that even though there is suffering in this world, it is temporary and our spiritual freedom and healing are eternal. Though we may ask for physical or emotional healing, we can stand confident that no matter God’s plan and answers, He has spiritually revived our former hopeless souls.

Today, I pray that the healing presence of God would be felt in the depths of your soul, bringing restoration, comfort, and peace to every area of your life. Remember, healing is a journey, not a destination – continue to seek God's healing touch, trust in His promises, and surrender your brokenness to Him. As you walk this path towards wholeness, may you experience the fullness of God's love, grace, and healing power in abundance. Amen.
