The best book I've read on healing prayer: it changed my life. After reading it, my faith sky-rocketed and healing prayer has become part of my lifestyle. Though I often pray without seeing physical results, I also regularly experience healing when I pray or receive prayer.
MacNutt gives a very balanced theology on sickness, spiritual, physical, and mental, and on prayer for healing. He answered many of my toughest questions and also addressed my deepest struggles of doubt, lack of faith, and pr The best book I've read on healing prayer: it changed my life.
He answered many of my toughest questions and also addressed my deepest struggles of doubt, lack of faith, and practical how-to questions. One of the best books on healing prayer written by a former Catholic priest who left the Dominican Order in the 's to marry.
Although now well into his 80's Francis MacNutt remains active in this ministry. His book covers a lot of ground and is recommended as a good, basic overview of Christian One of the best books on healing prayer written by a former Catholic priest who left the Dominican Order in the 's to marry. His book covers a lot of ground and is recommended as a good, basic overview of Christian intercessory prayer, its theological underpinning, its many attributes and a manual for anyone who feels called to this ministry.
My local chapter of the Order of St. Luke requires this book and two others , together with the series of videos produced by the MacNutts as preparation for induction into this ministry. Believe me, it's worth every hour of study and viewing. Healing is a very accessible book on this topic, well written and theologically sound. Highly recommended. Jan 31, Chris rated it liked it. Overall I liked MacNutt's book on healing, but I found it felt long and sometimes repetitive.
This was especially true for his material on why modern Christians should believe in and seek "miraculous" healing.
Both John Wimber's Power Healing and Jack Deere's Surprised by the Power of the Spirit do a much better job on this count although MacNutt is the only one of these authors to speak from a Catholic perspective, which might be helpful to some. Where MacNutt shines is in his practical advic Overall I liked MacNutt's book on healing, but I found it felt long and sometimes repetitive. Where MacNutt shines is in his practical advice for healing prayer, which comes through with clarity and wisdom.
If only for this aspect I found the book helpful and will probably reference it in the future. It's excellent. Read this 10 years ago. It was fascinating to see a Catholic priest's discovery of the charismatic gifts.
I was raised in the charismatic tradition, so most of what he has to say resonated with me. A great book to begin with for those who want to know more about how Christ's healing ministry is alive and well today. A charismatic preacher yes, it's a book originally published in the 70's when Charismatic gifts were commonly discussed shares his experience in praying for the healing of others. As a new minister he didn't believe he had the ability nor the right to attempt, but as he grew in his understanding and his Faith, he discovered that praying for healing really worksnot always instantly, and not always as expectedsometimes only in the unrecognizable form of guiding the subject to the right pro A charismatic preacher yes, it's a book originally published in the 70's when Charismatic gifts were commonly discussed shares his experience in praying for the healing of others.
So, much of the book is the encouragement to release the erroneous belief that disease is a means to salvation. Suffering isn't one of God's requirements. The message is to understand that praying for one's own health or that of others can bring results --sometimes amazing, sometimes subtle, that prayer groups can be especially powerful, and that one of the biggest secrets to the power of prayer, is to be open to receiving and sending Love.
Oct 20, Stephen Hiemstra rated it it was amazing. On the chessboard of life, what piece are you; what piece is Christ Jesus? If you are Christian, our creator God is the crafter of the chess pieces; not one of them. Still, when we pray, God is often assigned the role of a pawn in our lives. For example, I have a neighbor who thinks of prayer as nothing more than happy thoughts that bounce off the ceiling.
In a world where people talk about prayer as nothing more than happy thoughts, what is authentic Christian prayer? Francis MacNutt, in h Chess. Francis MacNutt, in his book—Healing, observes that: most traditional [Christians] have little difficulty in believing in divine healing. What was difficult to believe that healing could be an ordinary, common activity of Christian life What is your experience with healing prayer? His book divides into four parts which are preceded by a preface and followed by appendices and an epilogue.
Although I often skip appendices and epilogues in my own reading, here it would be a mistake. The epilogue includes the fascinating testimony of a Lakota Sioux Indian who attended a healing service in South Dakota and experienced miraculous healing of a mouth full of cavities As I read this story on a Saturday, I was experiencing an extreme toothache I had trouble eating because of the pain ; needed medication just to finish the reading; and I had already made a dentist appointment for Monday morning.
However, the story induced me to pray to God about my tooth—something that I had never done before. Before Monday morning the pain was gone and my dentist found no evidence of an infection. Meanwhile, the arthritis in my right foot that normally bothered me was mysteriously absent. In talking about healing ministry, MacNutt cites 5 basic arguments why prayer cannot lead to healing: We want nothing to do with faith healing—faith healers are religious quacks My sickness is a cross sent from God—as if God wanted you to suffer It takes a saint to work a miracle and I am no saint—asking for healing is a sign of excessive pride We do not need signs and wonders anymore; we have faith—the apostolic era is over Miracles do not take place; they only represent a primitive way of expressing reality—a pre-scientific explanation As such, he list 4 types of healing needs , including prayer for: Repentance of sin spiritual healing.
Emotional or relational healing. Physical healing. And Deliverance healing from spiritual oppression. Distinguishing the different types of healing needs is important because many charismatic writers lump all healing needs into deliverance prayer. The Apostle Paul writes: the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words Romans ESV. The Holy Spirit is the conduit between us and the Triune God in prayer.
My healed toothache is not unique. Although I prayed about tooth pain, I experienced healing both in teeth and feet—a sign of God's abundant grace. Stepping out to pray for healing fully expecting God to intervene and heal is risky.
MacNutt grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. MacNutt learned of the charismatic movement through Pentecostal Protestant friends. He left the Dominicans to marry his wife, Judith Carole Sewell, a therapist, in February and they settled in Clearwater, Florida , where they established Christian Healing Ministries  that same year. His decision to marry was controversial in the Catholic charismatic movement.
