CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINE
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 15: A PRAYER FOR THE SICK
& ABANDONED (PSALMS 41:4)
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
This is a prayer for God's mercy when
feeling sick or abandoned. However the believers know that when we are sick and
man has deserted us, God remains at our side.
Psalms 41:1. "Blessed is he that
considereth the poor: The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble."
The Word of God often makes note of
the need of the people of God to care for the poor. It is not the wish of God
for the poor to suffer. As God blesses us we should reflect His blessings by
It is for sure that man has so often
taken on the habits of the world. Thus, he constantly seeks to satisfy a
selfish desire of material gain. Thus in this verse we see again the inspired
Word of God reflecting on how God sees the poor and his blessings on those who
share His concerns.
Psalms 37:19 and 1-40 especially verses 1, 2, 18-24.
37:1-2. "Fret not thyself
because of evil doers, neither be thou envious against the workers of
37:2. 'For they shall soon be cut
down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
We should never envy the wicked.
Although some may be rich and successful this will all vanish in the end.
37:8-9. Cease from anger.
Never lose your temper over the
success of a wicked person. Here we also see that anger and worry can be very
destructive emotions. We should not worry but trust in the Lord. When we dwell
on our problems, we become unproductive anxious and angry. However when we
focus on God, we find peace.
37:19. "They shall not be
ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be
Not be ashamed means they will not be
confused or disappointed in times of distress. The Lord will remember them and
supply their needs.
"Defend the poor and fatherless:
do justice to the afflicted and needy."
"Deliver the poor and needy: rid
them out of the land of the wicked."
Psalms 41:4. "I said, Lord, be
merciful unto me: heal my soul for I have sinned against thee."
The Bible tells us that David had
been good to the poor. Thus, he expected the favour of God. His confession of
sin is not in regard to any specific act we know of. When the servants of God
humble themselves before God they will note their weaknesses.
41:9. "Yea, mine own familiar
friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel
This verse is viewed in the New
Testament as a prophecy of Christ's betrayal (see John ). This passage also has a two-fold
application. The personal experiences of David were very much like the
experiences that come to Jesus. Thus the circumstances were often described in
language that could be used as a prophecy.
41:13. "Blessed be the Lord God
Psalms is divided into five books and
each one ends with a doxology or an expression of praise to God. Chapters 1-41
reveal suffering, sorrow and great joy.

could be found no end to his existence in either direction, past or future.
Amen and Amen is a phrase intended as an emphatic sanction of truths just
