How to Receive Healing using a Prayer Cloth (Pamphlet)

In Acts 19:11-12 it says, “Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.”

This pamphlet is to accompany a prayer cloth which has been prayed over for God's healing and delivering power to be upon it. If you would like to receive a prayer cloth you can write to us and request one using the Contact page.

HOW TO RECEIVE YOUR HEALING USING A PRAYER CLOTH

 

This pamphlet should accompany a prayer cloth which has been prayed over in accordance with Acts 19:11-12.

 

There is now an anointing on your prayer cloth for healing and deliverance. As you believe you will be mightily touched by God for healing.

We encourage you to remember the work of the Cross. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).

Acts 19:11-12says, “Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.”

Please remember that the power of the Holy Spirit remains on the cloth at all times. As you believe for this you will find remarkable healing takes place. You should use this prayer cloth by attaching it under your clothing and continue to wear it until you are healed and/or delivered.

You should use this prayer cloth by attaching it under your clothing and continue to wear it until you are healed and/or delivered.

 

You should carefully consider the following comments as keys to your healing and deliverance.

 

1. WE MUST PUT GOD FIRST IN OUR LIVES

He must be ahead of our family, our possessions and everything else.  If this is not so then we are committing idolatry. (Exodus 22:3).  God will not hear us.

 

2. WE MUST ABSOLUTELY FORGIVE EVERYBODY AS GOD HAS FORGIVEN US.

Even though we have been forgiven by God at the Cross of Jesus Christ, we cannot appropriate this forgiveness to ourselves unless we forgive others.

Matthew 6:14-15says, “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Also, Mark 11:25-26, “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

We read the following account of when Jesus Christ rose from the dead in John 20:23, “He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

When Jesus had breathed on them they received the Holy Spirit. Like them we can decide either to retain the sins of other people or with the help of the Holy Spirit forgive those people and let their sins go.

If we don't forgive others with the help of the Holy Spirit then any demon powers operating through those who have hurt or damaged us can attack and cause disease and sickness.

 

Dodie Osteen was diagnosed with incurable cancer and healed. In her testimony, which is referred to later in this pamphlet, she says, “I examined my heart, and God began to deal with me about some things. One night I wrote letters to seven people whom I felt I might have offended, whom I needed to forgive or who needed to forgive me. I even wrote letters to people I thought I might have offended after I became sick because I had been so irritable. I hadn’t been myself. One letter was to my husband, and the others were to each of my children.”

Jesus tells us to do the following: “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.” Matthew 5:44.

 

3.  WE MUST HONOUR OUR MOTHER AND FATHER NO MATTER HOW THEY HAVE TREATED US.

Deuteronomy 27:16says, “Cursed is the one who treats his father or mother with contempt.”

If we don't honour them, the curses of the law, which include every form of sickness and disease as set out in Deuteronomy 28:15 onwards can affect us. Honouring our parents means having respect for them.

If your parents are alive you should write and ask them to forgive you for any wrong attitudes you have ever had towards them. Tell them you forgive and honour them no matter how you feel about them.

God says He will visit the sins of one generation on the next four of those who hate Him. (Deuteronomy 5:9).  Those who hate Him are those who do not obey Him.

We don't know what has happened in our previous generations.  In order to avoid the curse of inherited sicknesses and diseases from those generations we must honour our parents.

When we do so we can claim deliverance at the Cross of Jesus. He became a curse for us to set us free from the curses of the law and so that the blessings of Abraham may come upon us.  (Galatians 3:13-14).

 

4.  WE MUST BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD ABSOLUTELY.

Isaiah 53:4-5says, “Surely He has borne our griefs, And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.”

The words, “griefs and sorrows,” can also be translated as, “pains and sicknesses.”  We have been healed by the stripes laid on Jesus Christ.  Praise God!  We must believe this.

 

The Bible says:

“For I am the Lord who heals you.” Exodus 15:26.

“Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases.” Psalm 103:3.

When the ruler of the synagogue came to Jesus and begged Him earnestly to come and heal his daughter who was at the point of death Jesus said, “Do not be afraid; only believe.” (Mark 5:22-23 & 36) She was healed.

 

5. FAITH

Mark 11:22-24says, “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

Therefore let us put all doubt and fear out of our mind and believe God no matter how impossible it may seem.  “For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6.

 

6. NEED FOR PERSISTENCE

Remember the persistent widow who wouldn't take, “No,” for an answer. (Luke 18:1-8.)  We need to be like her and persist until we get the answer to our prayers.

 

7. NEED FOR REPENTANCE

Finally we must repent from all sins.  Our sins separate us from God and can prevent our healing and deliverance.

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.” Isaiah 59:1-2.

 

The Bible describes sin as follows (NKJV)

1 Corinthians 6:9-10:

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived.

Neither fornicators (sex outside of marriage)

Nor idolaters (putting other things ahead of God)

Nor adulterers

Nor homosexuals

Nor sodomites

Nor thieves

Nor covetous

Nor drunkards

Nor revilers (cursing other people)

Nor extortioners (taking other people’s money by threat)

will inherit the kingdom of God.”

 

Colossians 3:8:

Uncleanness (impurity)

Using bad language

Dirty jokes

Licentiousness (indecency) e.g. pornography

(Galatians 5:19, Ephesians 5:3-4)

 

Galatians 5:20-21:

Sorcery i.e. Witchcraft

Examples:

Fortune telling (horoscopes)

Some forms of heavy metal rock music

Ouija boards

Drugs (wrong kind)

Charms

New Age e.g. worship of the creation

Spiritism: Séances

Freemasonry

Martial Arts i.e. Kung Fu, Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Tai Chi, Judo (rooted in Taoism and Buddhism)

Druids Lodge

Eastern religions: Hypnosis (Hinduism Goddess Shiva), Yoga, TM, ESP, Worship of the creation (Idolatry) (Romans 1:25).

 

Those practicing…

Hatred

Contentions e.g. quarrelsome, causing fights

Jealousies

Outburst of wrath

Selfish ambitions

Dissensions (causing fights)

Heresies e.g. Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons

Envy

Murders e.g. deliberate unnecessary abortion

Drunkenness

Revelries (wild parties)

 

Revelation 21:8:

Also those who are…

Cowardly (refusing to follow Christ)

Unbelievers

Abominable

Liars

 

All of the above scriptures show the need for us to come before the Lord and repent of any of these sins so that we can inherit the kingdom of God.

“For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

The Bible says if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).

 

We suggest you say a prayer such as the following,

“Dear Heavenly Father I come to you in the mighty name of Your Son Jesus Christ. I believe He died on the Cross to pay the penalty for all my sins, to forgive me, to heal me and to reconcile me to You. I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour and I repent of these sins (name them).

Thank you Heavenly Father for your forgiveness, love and healing in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.”

 

Please follow the above directions carefully and you will know the blessing of God for healing.

 

Sickness caused by demonic activity:

Sometimes such things as pain, crippling diseases, deformities and a desire to die, are the result of demonic powers and attacks by satan. Jesus constantly healed the sick and cast out demons.

Deliverance Prayer: “Dear Heavenly Father, as I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ, I confess Jesus Christ is my Lord and my Saviour. I confess that He shed His blood for me and I plead now the protection of that precious blood over my whole life. In the name of Jesus Christ I command every spirit of sickness to flee from me. I rebuke it in the name of Jesus Christ and thank You Lord Jesus for Your healing. Amen”.

If you have been involved in anything on the occult check list at the end of this pamphlet, you should repent before God.

Finally, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8.

 

8. POWER OF SPEAKING OUT THE WORD OF GOD

An excellent way of receiving healing with the use of a prayer cloth is to read aloud each day scriptures from the Bible. I have seen wonderful results when this is done.

We suggest the following scriptures:

 

Psalm 103:1-5

“Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

 

Psalm 107:20

“He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.”

 

Isaiah 53:4-5

“Surely He has borne our griefs, And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.”

 

Malachi 4:2

“But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves.”

 

 

Mark 11:22-24

“So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

 

John 15:7

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”

 

Hebrews 10:19-22

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”

 

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

 

1 Peter 2:24

“who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness— by whose stripes you were healed.”

 

1 John 5:14-15

“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.”

 

Prayer cloth testimonies

To encourage you, we have included the following testimonies of healings which have occurred using prayer cloths and/or speaking out scripture.  In reading these you will note that persistence is required.

 

Brain tumour and heart condition healed

“Two years ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumour and an irregular heart beat.

Shortly afterwards I received an anointed handkerchief which Bill Subritzky had prayed over in accordance with Acts 19:11-12.  The handkerchief is now in tatters because I used it so many times over the last two years. I have also been obedient to keep believing for my healing.

I recently went to see my specialist and he told me that he can’t find any trace of the brain tumour or the heart condition.  My neurologist said he could not find the brain tumour either and my cardiologist said he couldn’t find any problems with my heart.

Praise the Lord, I’m totally healed!” – Kiriana

 

Kidneys healed

“In 2004 the doctors diagnosed me with a badly scarred left kidney. The kidney had basically shut down so the doctors wanted to remove it.

I went to a Bill Subritzky meeting and received prayer for healing. The person who prayed for me believed that I’d had negative words spoken over me as a child so we prayed about that and for my healing. I was also given a prayer handkerchief.  By faith, I truly believed from that night that I would be healed by God.

In 2005 I went back to the hospital and the specialist said he was quite surprised that my kidney had started working again. This meant they no longer needed to remove it.  However, they decided to do an operation to improve my kidney function even more but they didn’t know if this would work or not.

I continued to believe God for my full healing and throughout this time I kept the prayer handkerchief in my Bible, marking Acts 19:11-12.

In 2006 I went back to the specialist and he said my kidney was fully repaired!

Today I live with two fully functioning kidneys. I do not have any kidney infections and do not have any scarring on my kidneys.

I praise the Lord that He prompted me to go up the front to receive prayer for healing and that by faith I truly believed and I received my healing.”  – Margaret

 

Liver cancer healed

Dodie Osteen, the mother of Joel Osteen who pastors the largest church in the USA (40,000 people), was diagnosed with liver cancer 26 years ago and given six weeks to live. She read scripture aloud for six months and was totally healed. She is still healed 26 years later. Her testimony booklet is available from Christian bookshops.
