Praying And Saying
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. — MARK 11:24
Faith will work by saying without praying (notice Mark 11:23 doesn’t mention praying), but faith also works by prayer.
However, when you pray it, you still have to say (or confess) it.
Let me repeat that: Faith will work by SAYING it, or it will work by PRAYING it, but when you PRAY it, you still have to SAY it.
Mark 11:23 and 24 brought me off a bed of sickness many years ago. After I had prayed, then I began to say (not think) out loud in my room, “I believe that I receive healing for my body.” Then I specified each thing that was wrong with me: “I believe I receive healing for the heart condition. I believe I receive healing for this paralysis. I believe I receive healing for the incurable blood disease.”
And just in case I had missed anything, I concluded, “I believe that I receive healing from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.”
Within the hour every symptom of physical deficiency disappeared from my body, and I was standing on the floor beside the bed — healed!
Confession: What things soever I desire, when I pray, I believe that I receive them. I confess what I believe. I hold fast to my confession. And I never fail to receive them.
