Text::“Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.” – Jeremiah 17:14.
One of the very many challenges people in this age of the end of the world are contending with is ill health. Some of these ailments are curable while others are not. In some cases people afflicted with treatable ailments do not have the benefit of facilities to treat them. To further compound it all, not many people have the financial resources to get effective treatment. Whatever may be the case, worshippers of God should always be encouraged with the assurance that JEHOVAH the Almighty Father upon Whom we build our hope has NOT and will NEVER forsake His own by His grace. God has promised His children divine healing. What is expected of us is to pray to Him. James exhorted: “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him.” It is when we subject ourselves to medical treatment and accompany it with prayers, that we can get cure by God's grace. James the apostle exhorted, “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him”. – James 5:14,15.
May God continue to help us in our efforts to overcome “the sin which doth so easily beset us” so that He would be pleased to hear our supplications in our moments of tribulations. - James 5:16; Psalm 34:17.
