By Rev. John Osteen (Father of Joel Osteen, and Founder of Lakewood Church)

I fear the Lord and I prolong my days. I keep my heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. (Prov. 4:23; 10:27)

My desire is only of the Lord and it is a tree of life. I fear the Lord and He is my fountain of life. I have a sound heart and it is the life of my flesh. (Prov. 13:12; Prov. 14:27, 30)

I have a merry heart and it does good like a medicine. My belly is satisfied by the fruit of my mouth, and with the increase of my lips I am filled. Death and life are in the power of my tongue. I speak the life-giving words of God and I receive life and health in my body. (Prov. 17:22; Prov. 18:20-21)

Jesus Christ has borne my sicknesses and carried my pain. He was stricken, smitten of God and afflicted for me. He was wounded for my transgressions and He was bruised for my guilt and iniquities. The chastisement needed to obtain peace and well-being for me was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him, I am healed and made whole. I now have perfect health in my body. (Isa. 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24)

The will of God is done on earth as it is done in heaven. There is no sickness in heaven; therefore, I am not sick at all on the earth. Jesus was never sick on this earth. Jesus is in me and His life flows in me. As He was in the world so am I in this world. I am healthy as Jesus was healthy upon this earth. (Matt. 6:10; Gal. 2:20; 1 John 4:17)

Jesus destroyed the works of the devil, which were diseases, sicknesses, and bodily infirmities; therefore, all the works of the devil upon my body are destroyed and I have perfect health in Jesus Christ. (Matt. 8:17; 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38)

I am justified by my words. I have the faith of Jesus Christ in me, for Jesus is in me, and He is the Author and Finisher of my faith. I speak unto the mountains of sickness and disease and they obey my words and leave. I have authority and power over all disease and sickness; I command them to leave and they obey my words. I lay my hands on the sick and they recover. (Matt. 12:37; Heb. 12:2; Mark 11:23; Matt. 10:1; Mark 16:18)

I believe in God and all His promises, and all things are possible unto me. All the promises of God are Yes unto me for Christ has paid the price for all of them. (Mark 9:23; 2 Cor. 1:20)

I believe that all those things I say shall come to pass. All things which I desire, when I pray, I believe that I have received them and I have them. (Mark 11:23-24)

Whatsoever I ask in the Name of Jesus, Jesus himself does it that the Father may be glorified in the Son. When I ask for anything in the Name of Jesus, Jesus says He will do it. (John 14:13-14)

The Father loves Jesus Christ and gives Him all that He asks. The Father loves me as much as He loves Jesus and gives me everything that I ask. (John 16:23-27; 17:23)

All authority in heaven and earth is given unto Jesus Christ. I have faith in the power and authority of the Name of Jesus Christ and through His Name I am made perfectly whole. (Matt. 28:18; Acts 3:16)

The Spirit of God who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in me, and He who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, also quickens and gives life to my mortal body through His Spirit who now dwells in me. (Rom. 8:11)

I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead and I am healed. For with my heart I believe unto righteousness and with my mouth confession is made unto healing and health. (Rom 10:9,10; Mark 5:23; Acts 14:9)

My health springs forth and the glory of the Lord is revealed in me. The Lord brings me health and cure, and reveals unto me the abundance of peace and truth. (Isa. 58:8; John 17:22; Jer. 33:6)

I sow to the Spirit and reap of the Spirit life everlasting. I sow words of health and healing every day and daily reap health in my physical body. (Gal. 6:8-9)

Jesus has destroyed Satan and spoiled all his principalities and powers, and they no longer have any power in me. In the Name of Jesus, I have power over them and over all their works of sickness and disease. (Heb. 2:14; Col. 2:14-15; Mark 16:17-18)

The word is near me, even in my heart and in my mouth; that is the word of faith which I speak. (Rom. 10:8)

It is the will of God that I should prosper and be in perfect health even as my soul prospers. (3 John 2)

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and all the fullness of God dwells in me. I glorify God in my body and in my spirit which are His. (1 Cor 6:19-20; Eph. 3:19).

  1. I Believe that all. Those things. I say shall come to pass. And all things I desire when.I pray I have Faith in. Jesus that I have received them. He will do it….. In the name of JESUS…

    1. I’m hoping to reply to the post and not to Diane 🙂 I have a question. If anyone can shed light, I would so appreciate.

      I’ve had a horrifying “incurable” sickness in the past. Of course God healed me, but it took a few years because I had to learn that it WAS ALWAYS God’s will to heal me (and everyone). I’d been taught it was God’s will for me to suffer, so that stronghold had to come down. I was suffering excruciatingly 24/7, confined to bed (no big deal), but the excruciating non-stop torment was a big deal. Hard to learn, battle, do anything in that condition. Many people with same affliction I had, commit suicide. I wanted to, but was afraid of hell.

      Here is what I now believe, and no one can persuade me otherwise! This truth has roots that aren’t going anywhere but deeper. It is ALWAYS God’s will to heal everyone, and He will never turn down anyone who asks Him. And it is ALWAYS his will to do it immediately. Both are based on Scripture (not on circumstances I see around me). It’s just based on the simple truth that Jesus is the revealed will of God. He never did anything apart from the Father. And the two things I stated are both true of Jesus.

      I know someone has an answer to this question. So I keep asking bc it’s SO important for the people I am ministering to. God’s will is to always heal immediately. My friends’ wills are to be healed immediately. That only leaves the enemy, and he has been completely defeated. So for a person who is saved and has repented for any and all sin and is living in holiness daily to the best of their knowledge, WHAT is causing long delays? not days or weeks, but months or more. I cannot find anything in Scripture that would indicate there should ever be a delay. Not if we’ve taken care of everything I’ve mentioned. The only delay I see defined–which had nothing to do with healing–was in Daniel 9 and 10.

      Ken E. Hagin always had 100% healing (unique ministry). They had Rhema school of healing in the 80’s–for 2 weeks, full-time. Many, many times. Only sick people could attend. He taught how to get healed and keep it. And if anyone was having difficulty obtaining it for themselves, he would have healing lines, pray for anyone who hadn’t received yet, and they would receive. IF they didn’t receive, then God gave his wife a word of knowledge as to what was standing in the way. I’ve heard some of the stories, and they are unusual things that I wouldn’t guess could hold up a healing (not giving tithe for instance).

      This unique ministry was going on 40 years ago. I’m thinking the kingdom advances, and surely there is some place I can get words of knowledge (when I’m not receiving them myself) to help these hundreds of people (thousands soon) receive the healing Jesus paid for. There is just something “stuck”, and I’m looking for someone who can help me. Thank you Jesus. I believe what I’m asking for is according to your will, therefore I believe I’ve received. YAY!!! Looking forward to seeing the answer.

  2. I agree with you Michael to walk in the healing that Jesus Christ has already purchased for you. Tell satan where he is , under your feet !!! You are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.

  3. The spirit that raised Jesus from His death is in me. And by His stripes, I am now healed, perfectly restored and made healed.

  4. Thank you for your words of praise and encouragement. Please stand in prayer with me for Jesus’ healing hands on Elias and bring him miraculous healing from cancer. Praise Jesus for our answered prayers and for those of others. Blessings.

  5. According to Matthew 18:19, I ask for believers to agree with me as I stand firm on the promises of the Word for my complete healing. The enemy is continually trying to place symptoms on my body but I continue to confess 1 Peter 2:24, Mark 11:24, Psalm 103:3, etc. I thank God that as the redeemed of the Lord, I walk in divine health….agree with me that symptoms have to GO in Jesus’ Name and the enemy must leave me alone!

  6. Awesome to these proclamations from John Osteen
    my former pastor. [1984 to 1996].
    Love you Joel and Victoria

  7. I believe Jesus bore my sins and infirmities and by his stripes I’m healed pray with me about this diabetes plaguing my body and 2 hernias in my stomach I’m suppose to have surgery but my blood sugar gets high I’m on pills but I believe God but my faith need strengthen more

    1. Continue to speak God’s Word on healing everyday and speak to all the diseases that are coming against your body and command them to leave you in Jesus name. Find all you can on the authority of the believer and confess those also into your spirit until you know that you know you are the healed and no demon in he’ll can take your healing from you.

  11. Pray with me for pain has attack my body and head and nerves and I have a swollen breast and painful and Iam standing. On God word of Faith. Pray for my peace and joy through this time of distress

    1. In the name of Jesus I plead the blood of Jesus over your body. I believe in God’s promises that Jesus bore all our sicknesses and diseases and by his stripes you are healed. Pain we bind you in the name of Jesus. We bind the source of that pain in Jesus name. We curse it and command it to leave your body no more cease and desist now . Praise your name God. We loose healing power right now from the top of your the souls of your feet . Deliverance over your body now. We praise and glorify your holy name. AMEN
