God’s Power at Work Through Prayer

Prayer is crucial to our success in every area of our lives. Through prayer, we discover that God is good and that He is faithful. Through our personal prayer, we gain the confidence to know God’s Word is true and that when we pray, He hears and answers us. When we base our prayers on God’s Word, which is His will, our prayers are effective—and they produce the success we want. In other words, we get to see God’s Power at Work Through Prayer.

Our prayers are like incense rising before the Lord (Revelation 5:8, 8:3-4). Even in the Temple, incense served as a reminder to the children of Israel to pray, and assured them that their prayers were a sweet-smelling fragrance to the Lord (Exodus 30). God is pleased with our prayers, and prayers based on His Word changes things (and us!).

First Thessalonians 5:16-18 tells us to “rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (New King James Version). Pray without ceasing? How do we do that? In the words of Kenneth Copeland, we are to pray about anything and everything. We are to pray about ALL things ALL the time.

But how do we really do that? Well, a good way to start is to learn about and incorporate the many different kinds of prayer found in the Bible. Ephesians 6:18 says for us to “pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people)” (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition).

Based on this verse, we’re to:

  1. Pray at all times, on every occasion and in every season.
  2. When we do, we’re to pray in the spirit.
  3. And we’re to pray with all manner of prayer and entreaty.
  4. Then we’re to watch and continue interceding.

Prayer is meant to be a full-time aspect of our everyday lives, not something reserved for Sundays or church services or emergencies—although by all means pray then too! When we pray using all manner of prayer—and God answers our prayers—we experience God’s Power at Work Through Prayer.

Pray In Agreement With Someone

According to Kenneth Copeland, when two of his children, Kellie and John, were just children, they fussed all the time, like siblings often do. But one day, Kellie told her dad that she and John wanted a boat. Kenneth’s response was, “OK, but I tell you what: You and John are going to have to believe for it. And Mom and I won’t get out of agreement, but you’re going to have to use your faith. We’ll agree with you, but it’s going to be based on your faith.” He emphasized that she and John couldn’t fight with each other any longer…they had to agree in faith!

By telling Kellie that he and Gloria would agree with their faith, he was teaching Kellie about one of the kinds of prayer—the Prayer of Agreement—that Ephesians 6:18 refers to when it says “all manner of prayer.” Now the Bible doesn’t label any specific instance as the Prayer of Agreement, but that’s what we call it for teaching and communicating purposes. Much like when Jesus prayed the Lord’s Prayer, He did not call it that. He was simply praying to His heavenly Father. People labeled it the Lord’s Prayer, and that’s what we still call it today. Likewise, when Jesus told His disciples, “If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you” (Matthew 18:19), He was establishing what we call the Prayer of Agreement.

Well, when Kenneth put the challenge before Kellie, she knew exactly what to do. She was old enough to write, so she wrote out her and John’s agreement, based on the Word of God—based on John 16:23. “At that time you won’t need to ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name.”

This is what she had been raised to do—to write out a Prayer of Petition based on the Scripture, believing it would be granted. What’s more, the Prayer of Agreement won’t work unless Jesus is Partner in the agreement. Once Kellie finished her petition, she signed it and John scribbled what he could. But their actions established their faith. Their faith was based on a foundation of a promise from God’s Word. And they were in agreement.

Kellie put their Prayer of Agreement on the refrigerator door and when they would pass by, they would declare by faith, “Thank You, Jesus, for the boat.” They understood the words of Matthew 18:19, “My Father in heaven will do it for you.” It will be done. What strong language God used!

Not too long after Kellie posted their Prayer of Agreement, someone called Kenneth saying they wanted to give him a fishing boat. Kenneth had wanted one, so he was thrilled; and naturally, it would have been completely understandable to think that was the answer to Kellie and John’s faith, but they weren’t believing for just a fishing boat. They believed for ‘the perfect boat.’ And when Kenneth asked Kellie what that meant, she said they needed to be able to fish and also to stay out all night in it to just have fun. Well, not too long after the first boat was given, someone else called Kenneth, and they gave him another boat. John and Kellie’s prayer and faith yielded not one boat, but two! Their ‘perfect boat’ was actually two boats! That’s God’s Power at Work Through Prayer!

Pray About Everything

The Lord once told Kenneth Copeland, Let My Word fight its own fight. In other words, incorporate God’s Word in our prayers and let it get to work on our behalf. That’s how we fight the good fight of faith—through prayer, through releasing our faith in prayer, and through praying prayers based on the Word of God.

Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours” (Mark 11:23-24).

You can pray for anything. You can pray about anything. And it will be done.

Are you anxious? Pray.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

Are you fearful? Pray.

“When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?” (Psalm 56:3-4).

Are you worried? Pray.

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? (Matthew 6:25-26).

Do you need money? Pray.

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

Do you want to surrender your life to Christ? Pray.

“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

Is there someone you need to forgive? Pray.

“When you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too” (Mark 11:25).

Are you rejoicing about answered prayer? Pray.

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name” (Psalm 100:4).

The gift and exercise of prayer in the life of the believer is not a monologue that lands on deaf ears. It’s not meant to be us praying scattershot, as Kenneth Copeland says, where we say every religious and spiritual thing we’ve ever heard. No. It is intentional communication with God based on His Word, which we can always be confident is His will.

Prayer is the foundation of Kenneth Copeland Ministries and it should be the foundation of every believer. Make it yours today. Then you’ll see God’s Power at Work Through Prayer in your life.

7 Steps to Effective Prayer

God has provided ways for us to receive from Him. When our prayers are based in God’s Word and align with Him and His character, He wants to answer them—and He wants to answer them right away. He never holds out on us.

John 15:7 tell us, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (NKJV). Notice that the word you is in this verse five times. You and your will play a critical part in God answering your prayers. In fact, it’s actually more about you and what you do than is about God and what He does. But right in that tension between when we pray and when we see the answer is where we sometimes struggle.

This is where we come up with religious ideas like the notion that sometimes God says yes, and sometimes He says no or wait awhile. But nowhere in the Word does it say for us to wait awhile! It’s not in Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. It’s not in the book of Acts. It’s nowhere in the New Testament. Not one apostle, not one Christian, not one praying person in the New Testament ever told anyone that they had to wait any amount of time to receive something from God. And yet, we still hold onto the idea that we have to go through a waiting period after we pray. This is just our carnal mind’s way to try to work out spiritual problems.

In John 16:23, Jesus said, “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you” (NKJV). And 1 John 5:14-15 reassures us: “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” (NKJV).

What is it that you need from God? Well, you don’t have to wait to receive it. If you will follow the 7 Steps to Effective Prayer, you can have what you need now. In both the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, Jesus promised us, “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:24, NKJV; see Matthew 21:21-22).Consider these steps as you pray about your requests.

Step #1: Decide what you want from your heavenly Father. Be specific and prioritize.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” –James 1:5 (NKJV)

Brother Hagin often asked people what they were praying for, and if they said, “Well, nothing in particular,” he would respond saying, “Then that’s what you’re going to get.” To receive what we need or want, we have to be specific, and we have to prioritize.

Take the time to research and get specific about what you need. God doesn’t want you to pray general prayers; He wants you to pray specifically His will for you. Take some quality time, perhaps a weekend, and pray in the spirit about what you need. Take James 1 to heart and believe God for His wisdom. First Corinthians 1:30 says that Jesus has been made to us wisdom, sanctification and righteousness. Jesus knows what we need and He wants to share the details with us. This is the kind of precision we want to have when we go to our heavenly Father in prayer.

Step #2: Find the scripture(s) that promise you these things.

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” –2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)

Once we know exactly what we want, to receive it we have to base our prayer on the Word of God—on a specific scripture(s). We have to be willing to spend time in the Word and find the verse(s) God wants us to be standing on and bringing before Him in prayer. That’s how we build a foundation upon which to build our prayer. It’s how we can trust in what 2 Corinthians 9:8 promises us: “that you, always having.” God wants you “always having.” That is His will. That’s His grace. That’s His desire for you!

If you are single and want a spouse, for example, then find the scripture to stand on in prayer. God has not promised us something that is not His will to have—and His Word is His will. What promise are you standing on? “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us” (2 Corinthians 1:20, NKJV).

Step #3: Meditate the Word.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” –Joshua 1:8 (NJKV)

Firmly fix the scripture(s) you’ve found not only in your mind, but also in your heart. And the way you do this is to meditate on them. The Hebrew word translated meditate also means “to mutter or to talk to yourself.” Talk the word you’re standing on. This is how we release our faith. This is how we declare and speak into existence what we’re believing to receive. It’s part of how we keep ourselves expecting the exact thing we’ve prayed to come to pass. It’s seeing it already in existence in this natural realm with the eye of faith.

God wants you to see yourself with your answer. See yourself healed. See yourself restored. Get a vision board and post pictures of what you need to see with the eye of faith.

Step #4: Fight the good fight of faith.

“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” –Ephesians 6:10-18

Realize that you are in a spiritual fight. Refuse to allow doubt and fear to enter your consciousness. Control your mind based on 2 Corinthians 10:5: “We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.”

Use the armor of God. This is your prayer armor; it’s not for fighting other people. Put on the helmet of salvation. Take up the sword of the Spririt, which is the Word of God. When we hold onto the Word, the Word fights its own fight; it fights for us!

Step #5: See yourself succeed.

“My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.” –Proverbs 4:20-22

Prepare yourself to succeed. Hide the Word in your heart and live by it. Keep yourself holy and make no provision for the flesh (Romans 13:14). Matthew 6:22-23 reminds us, “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!”

Step #6: Testify what you believe.

“And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.” –Revelation 12:11

Begin testifying now to what God is doing—that He is moving, that He has answered your prayer. Do it by faith. You have been redeemed by the blood and walk in the blessing. You have a right to all that Jesus has promised you. Make sure your words match this truth.

Step #7: Get involved in helping someone else and get on the giving end.

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back” (Luke 6:38).

If you are believing for healing, then pray for someone else (James 5:16). If you are believing for a car, sow a seed into someone else who also needs a car. If you are believing for a new home, take care of the one you’re in, even if you’re renting. Treat it like it is your own. Be faithful where you are with what you have (Luke 16:10). The way you measure out, the Word declares, is how it will be measured back to you (Matthew 7:2).

The Word magnifies God’s willingness to use His power, so keep magnifying the Word in your life. If you will be diligent to walk in these 7 Steps to Effective Prayer, they will bring results 100% of the time!

Word of the Week: Pray Always With All Manner of Prayer

Think of those you love and want to see changed by the love and power of God and prepare yourself to intercede for them with this prayer: “Father in heaven, I come to You on behalf of my loved ones/my city/my church/my country. It is Your will that they are saved, filled with Your Spirit, healed, whole, delivered and walking in Your joy. I believe that You will change them and bring them into the destiny You planned for them. I thank You in advance. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Healing Is God’s Plan For You!

Faith begins where the will of God is known. Therefore, for you to receive the healing God has for you, it’s critical to be fully convinced that it is God’s plan for you to be well. And the best way to build your faith to believe and receive is to saturate yourself with the truth of God’s Word.

In John 5:30, Jesus said, “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (New King James Version). This verse tells us that everything Jesus did was the will of His Heavenly Father. And what did Jesus do? He healed people everywhere He went.

Matthew 15:30 says, “A vast crowd brought to him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and he healed them all.” Jesus didn’t heal some. He didn’t heal a few. He didn’t heal only one. He healed them ALL. He responded to their faith and made them completely whole.

If you’re still wondering, Is it God’s will to heal me? here’s your answer: Are you breathing? Are you still alive? Then, based on the Word of God, Healing Is God’s Plan for You!

Hindrances To Receiving God’s Plan of Healing

But here’s the thing: Although healing is God’s will for you, it’s conditional. Consider the following conditions and ask the Holy Spirit to show you how to walk fully in step with God’s plan of healing for you.

1. We receive our healing by faith, therefore, we need to be walking in faith, living by faith, speaking faith, declaring in faith, praying in faith and believing to receive the healing we need with faith. Second Corinthians 5:7 reminds us that we walk by faith and not by sight—and we receive our healing the same way.

When Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood, He said, “Your faith has made you well” (Matthew 9:22).

To the leper he said, “Your faith has made you well” (Luke 17:19, NKJV).

To the blind beggar Jesus said, “Your faith has made you well” (Luke 18:42).

And when people didn’t walk in faith, the word tells us, “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:58).

Faith is a condition by which we receive our healing.

2. We freely forgive. One of the biggest hindrances to receiving our healing is an unforgiving spirit, because it interferes with our faith working on our behalf. In Mark 11:22-25, Jesus said, “Have faith in God [the faith of God].I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.  But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too” (Mark 11:22-25).

Have you examined your heart lately? Are you holding a grudge? Are you withholding forgiveness from someone? Perhaps because they’ve wounded you so deeply and you don’t feel they deserve your forgiveness? Even in those times, Jesus said we are to forgive. In the Lord’s Prayer, He said, “Forgive us our sins as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us” (Matthew 6:12). And when Peter asked Jesus how many times we are to forgive someone who sins against us, Peter suggested maybe seven times. But Jesus said, “No, not seven times…but seventy times seven!”(Matthew 18:22). This is what it means to freely forgive, to always be willing and then to do it, because it’s one more condition of God’s plan for our healing.

3. We cast all our cares over on the Lord. Do you have a worried spirit? Are you worried about your healing? Consider this question: What has your worrying done for you toward receiving your healing? Absolutely nothing, right? To change your circumstance—to go from needing healing to being healed—you will have to cast all your cares over on the Lord. First Peter 5:7 tells us, “Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition).

To cast our cares requires that we humble ourselves before God. It’s so easy to carry our cares without even realizing it. Even worse is not to recognize that it’s a form of pride. First Peter 5:5 says, “In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for, ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’”

We weren’t created to carry our cares; we were created to cast our cares, and when we cast them, we are actually humbling ourselves before God.

Jesus Give Us Life

John 10:10 tells us it’s the devil who came to kill, steal and destroy. It’s Jesus who gives us resurrection life! “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you” (Romans 8:11).

Healing Is God’s Plan for You! And God has given you all power and dominion and authority over the devil and all his evil works, which includes sickness. Second Corinthians 10:3-5 tells us, “We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.”

            We receive our healing by faith.

            We freely forgive.

            We cast all our cares over on the Lord.

And when anything contrary to God’s plan for healing for our lives comes across our minds, we reject and cast down those thoughts (Matthew 6:31; 2 Corinthians 10:5). And we renew our minds according to the Word, so we speak only the Word regarding our healing.

Romans 12:2 tells us, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (NKJV).

Saying the same thing day after day and expecting a change will never work. To get a different result, we will have to change what we’re saying and thinking…because we say what we think, don’t we? So how do we do that? We renew our mind according to the Word of God. We speak the Word only. And this is how we release our faith for our healing: We speak it. We declare it. And we receive it by faith.

Healing Is God’s Plan for You! That is the will of God for you and your body. Settle it in your heart, mind and spirit today.

Faith—Your Ticket To Tapping Into the Supernatural

At the beginning of this year, the Spirit of the Lord through Kenneth Copeland said that 2024 would be a year of more and more, and more and more. That we’d see more finances, more healings, more miracles, more outpourings, more people coming to Jesus and more supernatural things happening. But if we want to receive all that God intends for us this year, we’ll have to receive it by faith. Faith is how we tap into the supernatural realm of the unseen and bring it into this seen realm. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (NKJV). What more is it that you are believing God to do in 2024? To help you receive all that God has for you, consider the following ways you can begin increasing your capacity for Faith—Your Ticket To Tapping Into the Supernatural.

Practice expectancy.

Hebrews 11 starts out saying, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for.” Hope is a powerful force that works with our faith. It fuels our faith. Hope is expectancy. What are you expecting to happen? Hope looks to the future, and faith is what brings the future into the present.

God wants us to abound in hope, but the devil will always give us reason not to get our hopes up. Dare to get them up anyway! It’s the year of more and more, and more and more. The key is to put our hope in the Lord, and not anyone or anything else. Psalm 33:20 says, “We put our hope in the LORD.” Hoping in Him means that we can’t misplace our hope!

Practice believing.

“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” –Mark 11:24 (NKJV)

Kenneth’s first faith project was a pair of socks. For years, like any young adult, if he ran out of socks, then he would simply get a pair from his dad’s supply. Well, there came a day when that didn’t work anymore, and all his socks had worn out. In the meantime, he had learned to live by faith, so he decided to get new socks by faith. He listened to the Word night and day. He listened to the preached Word. He read the Gospels. As Kenneth put it, he and Gloria didn’t have time for television or anything else, because they were either listening to the Word on tape or reading it.

Eventually, Kenneth had the money to get his new socks, but what he did by listening to the Word and releasing his faith for those socks was to increase his capacity for faith. He increased his capacity for the supernatural. What is it you’re believing for this year? Increase your capacity for the supernatural by believing for something specific. Find the verse(s) you’re going to stand on and believe them by faith. Say them. Declare them. And trust that God is working on your behalf.

Practice receiving.

“Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” –John 16:24 (NKJV)

“I believe I receive.” It’s a confession we make with our mouths when we choose faith in the Word of God. It’s how we continue to release our faith as we stand praying in faith. Even as we say it out loud, we can feel faith rise up on the inside of us. This is just one more way we increase our capacity to receive.

Receiving from God involves asking based on the Word of God. Our request must be based on a promise we find in the Word of God. Once we have that promise, we stand on the blood covenant and establish a relationship with our heavenly Father through the Name of Jesus regarding that particular promise. When we do that, we “cross that faith line and call it done,” as Kenneth Copeland says.

When we cross a faith line, we don’t look back; we don’t second-guess and we don’t doubt. We only believe that we receive! Practice receiving more and more this year, and as you do, you will increase your capacity for the supernatural.

Practice praying in tongues.

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” –Jude 20-21 (NKJV)

When we pray in tongues, not only are we praying out the will of God, but we are also increasing our capacity for the supernatural. We’re expanding our faith to receive. Paul wrote that he spoke with tongues “more than you all” (1 Corinthians 14:18) and look at all God did through him! What if we made it our goal in 2024 to pray in the spirit as much as Paul did?

Praying in tongues prays mysteries of God. We’re praying out the will of God that He wants done in this earth. We’re tapping into a realm of the spirit that our natural selves can’t access. We’re bringing heaven and earth together! What’s more, as Jude wrote, we’re building ourselves up; we’re actually building our faith.

Honor the Word of the Lord.

“If you receive a prophet as one who speaks for God, you will be given the same reward as a prophet. And if you receive righteous people because of their righteousness, you will be given a reward like theirs.” –Matthew 10:41

God wants us to honor the words He speaks through His prophets in this earthly realm. We honor them by receiving them according to Matthew 10:41, and then believing and releasing our faith for those words to come to pass in this earth and in our lives. Near the end of 2023, the Spirit of the Lord prophesied through Kenneth Copeland the following word. Allow it to further encourage your faith and increase your capacity for the supernatural. For the complete words that the Lord shared through Brother Copeland, read THIS.

Believing God’s Love: The Key To Receiving Your Healing

Just a few hours before He went to the cross, Jesus prayed for us. And while His full prayer is recorded in John 17:1-26, one verse shows us God’s immense and complete love for us: “I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me” (verse 23). It’s staggering to the human mind yet thrilling that God loves each one of us as much as He does Jesus! It’s far easier to read that God loves us, but to really believe it in our hearts, receive it and walk in it takes us to another level altogether. If we really let ourselves believe in God’s Love for us, we will never again wonder if it is God’s will to heal…we will believe for healing and even more…we will RECEIVE it.

First John 4:9-13 says, “In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit” (New King James Version).

When we believe God’s Love for us personally, it makes receiving whatever it is we’re believing for so much easier, because faith works by love (Galatians 5:6). What’s more, the Word tells us that “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment” (1 John 4:18, NKJV). If you’re standing in faith, declaring the Word over your health, and believing to receive your healing, if you saturate yourself with the Word of God about His love for you, if His love becomes your focus, then it makes receiving your healing and having victory over the fear tormenting you that much easier.

First John 4:16 is a powerful verse to personalize as a confession to help us believe God’s Love for us. We can say it this way: “I know how much God loves me, and I have put my trust in His love. God is Love, and because all who live in love live in God, God lives in me.”

It’s one thing to know the love of God, but another thing to believe the love. And it’s critical that we do both. In the last verse of Jesus’ prayer to His Heavenly Father, Jesus went on to say, “I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them” (verse 26).

If you are born again, the same love of God that He loves Jesus with is inside of you! Romans 5:5 says, “And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”

God’s Love Never Fails

We can trust God because He loves us with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). He loves us with covenant-making and covenant-keeping love.

Every night, Kenneth Copeland confesses God’s Love before he goes to sleep. Confessing God’s Word from Matthew 22:37-40, he says, “I love The LORD my God with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength. And I love my neighbor as myself, fulfilling all the law and the prophets.” Kenneth does this to keep himself in remembrance of God’s Love for him and God’s Love in him for others because he knows that God’s Love never fails. That’s what 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 shows us.

  1. Love endures long and is patient and kind.
  2. Love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
  3. Love is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride).
  4. Love is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly.
  5. Love (God’s Love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking.
  6. Love is not touchy or fretful or resentful.
  7. Love takes no account of the evil done to it; it pays no attention to a suffered wrong.
  8. Love does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
  9. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes.
  10. Love is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances and it endures everything without weakening.
  11. Love never fails; it never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end.

Of course, love never fails because God is Love. What’s more, if God is Love and we have received Him, then we have received love (1 John 4:16). We have received the love. We have believed the love. He lives on the inside of us, so too we are love, and therefore, we never fail either!

Part of renewing our hearts and minds is to become Love-that-never-fails-in-me-minded! And one way to begin doing that is to personalize 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 as our own confession. What if we replaced the word “love” with the personal pronoun “I”?

I endure long, and I am patient and kind.
I am never envious, nor do I boil over with jealousy.
I am not boastful or vainglorious, and I do not display myself haughtily.
I am not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride).
I am not rude (unmannerly), and I do not act unbecomingly.
I do not insist on my own rights or my own way, for I am not self-seeking.
I am not touchy or fretful or resentful.
I take no account of the evil done to me; I pay no attention to a suffered wrong.
I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but I rejoice when right and truth prevail.
I bear up under anything and everything that comes.
I am ever ready to believe the best of every person, my hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and I endure everything without weakening.
I never fail. I never fade out or become obsolete or come to an end.

Confessing God’s Love is a powerful way to renew our hearts and minds to the power of God’s Love to transform us, to strengthen us and to heal us. It’s a powerful way to increase our faith to believe and receive the love God has for us—and to receive our healing.

Rooted and Grounded In Love

God wants us rooted and grounded in His love for our benefit. Ephesians 3:14-20 says, “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (NKJV).

Being rooted and grounded in love was the main issue with the church at Corinth. Paul wrote that he couldn’t speak to the believers there as spiritual, but as carnal (1 Corinthians 3:1-3). They walked as unchanged men, the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says. God wants us to be rooted and grounded in Him—in love. He wants us to know everything about Him. He wants us to understand how He who is Love thinks, how He feels, and what He knows.

“Learn of me,” Jesus said (Matthew 11:29).

“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection,” Paul said (Philippians 3:10).

As you continue to know God; as you continue to believe His love, you will begin to receive your healing. Being fully convinced, rooted and grounded in the truth of God’s Love for you makes believing for healing easy. So, today, pray out loud with faith: “God loves me. He gave Himself for me. He is my Lord and Savior. I not only know His love, I believe His love. Even when it looks as though He isn’t moving, I believe. I know He loves and cares for me. I receive His love, now. I receive it in my spirit, in my mind and in my body. Love makes me whole!”
