Healing Service

Last night, C.J. and I attended a church service at a friends’ church. The service was focused for those people desiring healing, whether physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, etc

It was a great night of worship, a good message and prayer. I honestly wish there were more opportunities like this as it was a perfect way to spend a Friday night. In the presence of God and worshiping with other believers!

The pastor prayed for healing over C.J. and I. We have done this at our church as well with our elders. I believe the power of prayer is the only way that we will go from being infertile to becoming fertile. It’s certainly not just going to happen magically, or by going to see a doctor. It’s going to take a complete miracle and the only way miracles happen is by prayer.

Of course, with prayer, God asks that we have faith as well! We don’t know when He will make us completely fertile, but we know He will. It might be that we are now, it might be in 3 years, but while we wait, we will continue to trust. If you have the opportunity to attend a service like this, or pray with the elders at your church or just friends or family members in general, I highly recommend it. It’s such an awesome and humbling experience.

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. – Matthew 21:22

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord” James 1:6-7.

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. – James 5:13-16

    This was such a lovely post. You are so inspiring! It’s hard to find faith during infertility. Especially unwavering faith. That’s wonderful that you have elders to pray over you and I hope that we can find a home church who can do the same for us. We had a home church in Maine (we live in NC now) and the Pastor their prayed over us. It was amazing and so helpful.

    Thank you for the scripture and your example. You’re in my prayers too. 🙂

    We went to a healing service before our IVF. They anointed my forehead with oil and prayed over my husband and I. It felt really healing – spiritually and emotionally – just to be there and be cared for in that way. I’m so glad that you sought out that support as well.

    I love this! Your faith is awesome. And you know what, this is SO your verse!

    Jeremiah 17:7-8
    New International Version (NIV)
    7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.
    8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.
    It does not fear when heat comes;
    its leaves are always green.
    It has no worries in a year of drought
    and never fails to bear fruit.”

    Your faith in God is amazing. Prayer has been able to help us through IVF and infertility. Infertility has brought us(my husband and I) back to the church. The Healing Service seems to be a great event that you were able to attend!

    Your faith is always so strong. It inspires me and reminds to me make God a priority in all of these IVF decisions. For He is the One who will ultimately decide if we will become parents. The thing that I struggle with in my faith is that he doesn’t always make the infertile – fertile. I have friends who are strong Christians who prayed for 18 years and never became parents. How do you reconcile that with your faith that God will make you fertile? I only ask because I struggle so much myself.
