“Please pray for (me or fill in the appropriate name) for such and such a condition.”
I am hearing these prayer requests more and more as time goes on. I don’t object to people realizing that God holds their well-being in his hands. But I have to ask, “Have you done your part in the process of healing?” In most cases you have had a hand in the cause, why throw all the work of recovery onto God.
“What do you mean I had a hand in the cause of my cancer, my heart condition, my high blood pressure, etc.?”
Was there a time when you didn’t have this ailment? What did you provide your cells with before the onset of said condition? Did you avoid consuming refined sugars, refined flours, and other substances that robbed you of your metabolic reserves? Did you avoid exposure to man made toxins, physical, mental, and spiritual? These were your responsibility.
“Well, I’ve gone to the doctor and I’m taking the medications he prescribed. What else should I be doing?”
In spite of the miracles of modern medicine, health is the response of your cells, your organs, your various systems to the effects of full spectrum nutrition from food. Drugs can never be the foundation of health any more than pulling on strings makes a puppet come to life. There might be a certain resemblance, but some vital element will be lacking. If it is health you are after, drugs won’t reach the goal. They might play a role, but it will be food that wins the prize or casts you down in defeat.
Now that you are sick, have you sought out those foods, like premium AFA algae, that supply the nutrients your cells need, your systems need, your entire body needs in order to achieve optimum functionality? Have you thrown out those “foods” that hinder optimum function? This is the way God set up health. This is the order he established.
Of course you don’t want to hear this when you are sick or are deeply concerned for a friend. “Never mind the cause, never mind my future behavior, I just want to be cured, now, of this malady so I can get on with my life. I don’t want to change.” Though perhaps not said in so many words, this is the message of our impatience with examining the roots of the disorder.
In spite of our reluctance to deal with causes, there is a set procedure for healing, no matter how it comes about. First comes turning away from the cause or source of the distress, next is turning to the right ordering and calling your body back into the right order, then comes healing and recovery. Such was the way in my own case.
