And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
This week we are led to highlight and come against cancer with the power of the spoken word...God's Word!!! We have gotten so many reports of so many of our leaders dealing with some type of cancer throughout this year and during this initiative, but, especially, this week.
We come against this destructive force of cancer that is attacking your body and we speak and send His Word, right where you're at, to heal you!!!
The Greatest Faith:
In this story, Jesus told the centurion He was willing to go heal his servant, but the centurion said "I am not worth of you coming under my roof..JUST SPEAK THE WORD ONLY, and I know my servant will be healed"..The centurion knew what it was to walk in authority and speaking a word or command and it would happen. Jesus goes on to say, "I have not found so great faith, no, not in all of Israel". What was this "so great faith" that He was talking about? Knowing the power and authority of the spoken word and speaking the word only. The centurion understood the principle of speaking a word and it coming to pass. It is the same way today..God want to heal you. It doesn't matter where you are, how your feeling, what the diagnosis is, what stage it's in…God wants to heal and set you free from cancer…His Word & Prayer, know no distance…There is nothing too hard, too big, too small, for the Lord. He has you on His mind and wants to set you free in the powerful and mighty name of Jesus!!! We send God's Word to heal you! Be healed!!! The truth of God's word that "by His stripes we were healed" will change the facts that your body has cancer by the Authority of the Spoken Word. Receive it, today!
"Father, we take complete authority over cancer that is attacking the physical bodies of our leaders and we speak to those bodies to be healed. We speak it forth. We thank you for the healings that are taking place right now. We thank you for tumors that are shrinking and disappearing. We thank you for supernatural strength that is coming in to bodies and immune systems. We thank you for removing all side effects from the chemo. We thank you for hair that is no longer falling off, but growing. We thank you because cells are being aligned to operate in their proper function in their bodies. We release you to complete your healing work in the lives of your people. In the Authority of the name of Jesus!!! We praise you!!! Amen!"
Pray, Fast & Communion Fridays #7: Isaiah 60:1&2
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Have been meditating on this portion of scripture for a couple of months now as we go into the new year. But God really highlighted it for today's scripture reference as we continue to go to the Throne Room for the physical health of our spiritual leaders. His healing glory is rising up setting His people free of sicknesses, infirmities and diseases. It may look physically, dark, grossly dark, and like there is no hope of being set free from that sickness in/on your body. It feels like you are going to have to live that way for the rest of your life. But the Lord is showing up in all His Glory bringing deliverance to your body. In Jesus Name!!! And so be it!!! Receive it!!!
Pray, Fast & Communion Fridays #6: Psalms 85:6 & 7
Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. [Soteria = Salvation/Peace: Nothing missing, nothing broke, everything made whole. We speak and release salvation and peace over bodies today!!!]
"Father, Revive & Restore the physical health of our spiritual leaders. Send revival to their bodies today. Let health take residence in their bodies like never before. In Jesus Name!!!" #OccupyHealth
Pray, Fast & Take Communion Fridays #5: Isaiah 8:18 & Deut 26:7-9
Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders...And when we cried unto the LORD God of our fathers, the LORD heard our voice, and looked on our affliction, and our labour, and our oppression: And the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders: And he hath brought us into this place, and hath given us this land, even a land that floweth with milk and honey..(a land of health)
As we designate, this, and the next 5 Fridays, to pray and fast and take communion for the physical health of our spiritual leaders, let's believe for more then just miracles. Let's believe that God will make them/us a sign and wonder. That they will be a sign/billboard of His goodness and healing power. And people will look at them/us an wonder; now you have it...now you don't!!! Now you have cancer, now you don't! Now you have diabetes, now you don't! Now you have sickness in your body, now you don't! "Father, make us a sign and a wonder. We pray for tangible, unprecedented healings to begin to take place in the lives of your servants today!!! Blow the natural mind of man with your goodness. Make us a sign and wonder!!! We command health to manifest in their bodies now!!! We thank you for the testimonies!!! In Jesus Name!!!"
Let the health invasion begin!
USHPN: Health Prayer Initiative 2011
“As we continue to see and hear reports of men and women of God that are being attacked in their physical bodies. The time has come to raise up a Health Cry across this nation and around the world to see breakthrough come to the physical health of our leaders.” - USHPN
For the last several months the Lord has been laying on our hearts here at HPN to mobilize prayer for the physical health of our spiritual leaders in America (as well as any other nations that would like to join this initiative). In obedience, we began to pray and we have already begun to see a result of God’s answered prayer for healing. But that is only the beginning. The Lord has further led us to go public with this health prayer initiative. We truly believe God is going to bring breakthrough in the area of healing in many of our leaders & their families that have been attacked in their bodies.
With that in mind, last Wednesday, Oct 13, in a special time of prayer & fasting on Prayer Mountain here in Dallas, TX, together with other ministry leaders we begin the process of publicly unveiling this initiative. We followed that with a special Sunday service in Houston, TX at Primera Iglesia Asemblea de Dios Houston. Furthermore, we had already begun to share this with other national prayer leaders and organizations across America and they are joining with us. Which leads us to this appeal. Now, we need you to join with us…our leaders need you. If you only knew how much!
As recently as today, we continue receiving more and more reports of men and women of God that have been under attack physically. From cancer to pneumonia to viral infections, we are seeing our spiritual leaders suffering in their bodies, some even to the point of death. The time has come to raise up a Health Cry across this nation and around the world to see breakthrough come to the health of our leaders. We truly believe God is going to bring supernatural breakthrough in the area of healing in the lives of our leaders & their families that have been attacked in their bodies.
So for the last 11 weeks of the year we are calling on all intercessors, prayer leaders & organizations as well as churches to join with us in this Health Prayer Initiative. We are asking everyone to be a part.
Here are the ways in which you can participate in this Initiative:
We believe that these 11 weeks are going to lay a foundation & pathway to healing & health in the lives of our leaders. There are certain things that only come through prayer & fasting. So we are asking everyone to join with us. Send in the need and/or name of your pastor, leader, so we can add them to the wall of prayer. We have set up an email for that purpose: email@example.com
So join with us in this health prayer initiative. God want us to be in complete divine health. He wants to use our prayers to set his leaders free once and for all. But it is going to take all of us coming together to bring about this breakthrough. The devil has had our bodies bound long enough…its time for physical freedom…that only corporate prayer & fasting can bring.
We are not only talking about national leaders. We are talking about all spiritual leaders, from our local churches to our community outreaches to our national organizations. If you are on the front lines and are struggling with your physical health or you know of some leader who is, send us their name. God has called us to mobilize prayer on your/their behalf through this Health Prayer Initiative. Divine Health is going to invade bodies all over America and around the world. Testimonies are getting ready to come forth.
Again, feel free to send in the name of your pastor, spiritual leader and/or specific health situations to cover in prayer more directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for being a part of this Health Prayer Initiative.

Let's stand in gap for the health of our spiritual leaders that they will not be destroyed physically.
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezekiel 22:30
Please, forward this email. Thank you.
