Our topic is a discussion on God's will and healing
Some never pray for healing or pray with a final statement, "If it is Thy will."
Many pray for healing and some don't get healed. That raises the question whether it is God's will to heal. The argument that most put forward is that if it is God's will, the person prayed for will get healed.
This has been debated for centuries and several views are held by the Church. The question can also be asked, "If it is not God's will then why do some get healed?" There is no easy answer.
Scripture has much to say on this topic and it is important to examine Scripture and examine all possible reasons why healing takes place in some and why it does not in others.
Let us examine these together during a time of worship, Bible study, and prayer.
Psalm 34:6 In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; He saved me from all my troubles.
Psalm 34:17 The LORD hears His people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.
Psalm 103:3 “He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.”
This is a time for worship and a Bible based discussion followed by the ministry team praying individually for healing.

The Waverley Baptist Church holds a Healing Service once a month on the first Wednesday of the month. This is a time to worship God, study what the Bible says about healing today, and pray individually for those needing prayer. Yes, people do get healed!
Who can attend? Just about anyone with a need for physical, mental, emotional or spiritual healing. At the Healing Service you can have someone pray with you to place your deepest problems into God’s powerful hands.
Does God heal? The Bible says in Psalm 103:3, “He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.” Jesus healed everyone who came to Him. Jesus’s disciples healed everyone who came to them for healing and Paul healed everyone on the island of Malta who were brought to him.
Further, God has made provision for healing today. Please note the following Scriptures:
“These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in My name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed” (Mark 16:17-18 NLT emphasis added)
“Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results” (James 5:14-16 NLT emphasis added).
