Looking for signs of healing
We would love healing to be quick, dramatic, and just the way we want! Jesus told a parable in Mark 4 that likens the kingdom of God to a growing seed - slow, unseen and without guarantees what it will look like in the end.
Why not use these questions to explore this topic further . . .
- As you reflect on your experience of praying for people’s healing, are there occasions when the outcome was fairly quick and possibly even dramatic, but other times when it was slow and almost imperceptible? What proportion of your ministry would fall into each category? How do you feel about this?
- There are many elements in prayer ministry over which we have no control, but try making a list of the various aspects over which you do have control. Reflect on the list and ponder how you can be better at each of the points you have noted.
