Someone recently asked me, “Is it good to pray for the recovery of a person who is sick with an incurable disease?” My question back: “Is there a disease that is incurable for the Almighty God?” It says in Luke 1:37 “With God nothing is impossible.”
We hear in God’s Word about the “incurable” leper who asked for help in Mark 1:40 and Jesus healed him. Blind Bartimaeus at Jericho’s gate asked for help and was cured. (Mark 10:46) These situations and may others from God’s Word are historical evidence of God curing what humans thought were incurable situations.
Our Almighty God is still powerful, still active, still healing. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
It is very appropriate to pray with all confidence: “Lord, please heal ______ if it be according to your will.” There are many, many miraculous stories of people being healed when it seemed all that all hope was gone. We never know if God is going to heal a person for more time yet on earth or for their eternity in heaven.
