Twice healed

2 Corinthians 1:18-22; Mark 2:1-12

When the congregation I serve initiated a prayer chain several years ago, its participants were amazed at the response: healing intercessions requested for all manner of illnesses and ailments—physical, emotional, spiritual, societal. The calls poured in from members and nonmembers alike.

Why so well received? In part, because those seeking out intercessory prayer know that they will be surrounded by a cadre of faithful folks who already know firsthand the healing presence and power of the Holy One. They join together in seeking wholeness, and those in need draw confidence through this shared connection.
