I believe God can handle an honest question about healing. But after we ask, we need to be willing to receive an honest answer. A woman writes and seeks answers as to why her mother died and others, including herself are sick. 

“Dear Becky,
I lost my mum to Liver cancer on 31st august. I’m depressed and devastated. I’m asking God a lot of questions. Why didn’t He answer our prayers? She/we prayed, declared, confessed, renounced. Spoke to the cancer to die yet it took my mum. The body of Christ stood in the place of prayers for her yet she died. You too prayed for her. I don’t understand and I’m scared.
My husband is suffering from hepatitis B, he is always taking drugs. I keep praying and speaking to the virus yet no improvement.
My younger sister is sick. Doctors can’t diagnose it. She is a full time missionary. We have been praying and renouncing yet no improvement.
Even myself is not well. I have a swollen lymph under my armpit, my breast aches. I feel pain around my liver. I have been praying, people are praying, I have been confessing and renouncing all the sickness. But no change. And on top of that I’m suffering from infertility.
Is God going to watch and do nothing while sickness finish me and my entire family. I used to have rugged faith but my mum’s death has left me broken and in doubt. My family and I need a miracle. I don’t want to suffer from cancer, I don’t want cancer to take me, my husband or siblings. None of these diseases have a cure except God shows us mercy.
I’m sorry to speak in this way. It’s not Christian like. But I’m frustrated and unhappy.”


According to Isaiah 53:4-5 Jesus Christ has done all that He is and can do. He shed His blood for us to pay the price for all sin and the consequences of the original sin (the fall of Adam and Eve), and even our own sins open up doors to sickness and disease. Also, just because we pray in faith doesn’t mean the person being prayed for receives our prayers of faith, they do have a part to play in this issue. And most Christians miss out on their manifested healing because they speak wrong words, negative words like you are speaking in this post. Your words possess the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21), meaning we are prophesying over our bodies and situations constantly throughout the day. We live in the words that we are constantly and consistently speaking over ourselves. I can guarantee you that the individuals you speak of, or those around them have been speaking words of death, disease and symptoms and not declaring the Word of the Lord over them. Lastly, our actions must line up to our words of faith. If we say that we are healed, then we need to act like we are healed. I hope this helps because truth about healing will set us free in the area of healing. Blessings, Becky


But [in fact] He has borne our griefs, and He has carried our sorrows and pains; yet we [ignorantly] assumed that He was stricken, struck down by God and degraded and humiliated [by Him]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our wickedness [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]; the punishment [required] for our well-being fell on Him, and by His stripes (wounds) we are healed. Isaiah 53:4-5, AMP.
