  forgiveness to our fellowman

  1. FEAR –cancels effects of prayer

Fear of man is not Fear of the Lord

Natural fear is body protecting self
Religious fear
Demonic fear – enslaves and torments

  1. KIND OF FAITH- Comes by hearing the Word of God

Jesus equates faith with belief
Hold fast
“If it be thy will” – never said in the Bible in relation to a healing or answer to prayer, only in prayer of commitment or consecration through Jesus’ commitment to His sacrifice!

When time to die, released to: last earthly healing, to the presence of God, to larger life of eternity, if die in Christ Jesus


Heb. 9:27

Isa. 55:8-9
II Ki. 2:9-10



  1. CONDITIONS – God is no respecter of persons, but is of conditions:  

Just to name a few:

Accepting or rejecting healing, disability insurance (example) or “Pity parties” – attention given through sickness from others
Speaking wrong confession Taking chances
Too busy doing own thing to give God any of their time, so Spirit of man undernourished
Divisions over doctrines, ritual

 Job 3:25; Job 22:28
