Prayer for Good Health–Wealth is not profitable until it is
accompanied by good health. A man on the hospital bed once
cried to the doctor, “Please, under the bed is any amount of
money you'll need. Just take it and ensure I live”, but he
eventually died. Proverbs 11:4 says, “Riches profit not in the
day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.”
Health is Holistic: A good health is the state of well-being in
the body, mind, and soul. That is true wealth, hence the
popular saying, “Health is wealth”. A good health requires that
your mind is calm and untroubled. This is not dependent on
what you have but on contentment with what you have. Then
the mind would communicate to the body what condition it
should be in.
The Superiority of Health to Healing: Healing is a recovery
from a sickened condition while health keeps you intact from
sickness. You would have suffered already before healing
comes. Therefore, prevention is better than cure. Do
Whatever you can to maintain your health from failing. This
has everything to do with God, for nothing you do is capable
of keeping you in perfect condition as the One who made you.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on
Thee: because he trusteth in Thee” (Isaiah 26:3).
The Role of Prayer in Maintaining Good Health: When you
pray, you release your burdens to the Lord. By so doing, the
weight that should bug you down is cast off. That, on its own,
helps to boost your health.
“Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I
will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
“Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you” (1
Refusal to pray is a sign of pride. It indicates that you feel
sufficient in yourself. That is why humility is said to precede
“If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive
their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
