Personal Prayer from Joel Osteen Ministries

Renee we love you here at Lakewood Church and we are fervently praying for you. Meditate on and confess the attached scriptures until they take root and come alive in your heart. Please let me know if they are helpful. God bless!Psalm 103: 1-3 Praise the Lord, O my soul. And all that is within me, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul. And forget none of His acts of kindness. He forgives all my sins. He heals all my diseases.God’s Word makes it perfectly clear that it is God’s will that you are to be well, healthy, and whole. The same blood that Jesus shed on Calvary’s tree for your redemption was also shed that you might be free from sickness and disease. Matthew 8:17 says that Jesus Himself bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases. He did that for you; and if He carried them for you, then you don’t have to carry them. Healing is God’s promise to you. But just because it’s God’s will for you life doesn’t mean it will automatically happen. You have to believe His promises, reach out for them in faith, and snatch them for yourself. Everything you receive from God you receive by faith. A key factor in releasing your faith is the words that come out of your mouth. There is power released into you life when you speak God’s Word. It is a vital part of appropriating God’s promises and activation spiritual forces that will bring God’s promises to manifestation. Please see the attached healing scriptures compiled by Pastor Dodie Osteen.The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, but the Bible says the He is alert and active, watching over His Word to perform it. (2 Peter 3:9, Jeremiah 1:12) Meditate on and confess the promises of God until they become more real to you than your challenge. (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)Proverbs 4: 20-26 (NLT) My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.


Father God, I come before You with thanksgiving and praise. You are holy and just, and Your incredible mercy endures forever. I am awed by Your great love for me. I recognize it in all that Jesus did. He lived to do Your will. Therefore, I know that it is Your will to do good and heal all who are oppressed of the devil. I have no doubt, Father, that healing is mine, in Jesus’ name.Father, Your Word says that in Jesus all of Your great and precious promises are for me. By Your Word, I can confidently declare every one of them to be accomplished in my life. I choose to believe, Father. I stand in the face of my circumstances and declare Your Word as the final authority. Jesus bore my sicknesses and carried my pains; the chastisement for my peace was upon Him and with the stripes that wounded Him, I am healed. I receive you healing in my mind and body, in Jesus’ name.Satan, I command you and every devil to take your filthy hands off of me. Your sickness, diseases, and maladies shall not reign in me. I am in Christ Jesus and He has set me free!Body, I command you now, by the authority of God’s Word: be healed! I command every cell to work properly. Unhealthy cells, I tell you now that you are flooded with God’s healing power. Healing, pour through my body until it is in perfect working order.Father, I know that Your Word is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. It has within it the very power of fulfillment. Therefore, I seal the fate of all ailments by declaring it to
You now, in Jesus’ name!
