God Thinking XCII - Question Of The Heart 3

Is there a way for me to experience the healing power of God without going up in the front of the Church and being prayed for?

Yes.  You can be the recipient of someone who goes up in the front of the Church and prays for you.

Going up in the front of Church has nothing to do with healing - except it is a place where men and women of faith join together in agreement and that has a lot to do with healing. (there is power in agreement.)

You could join together in agreement somewhere else, but the practical truth is that on Sunday morning (or other) when you are all together, it becomes the place where the most like minded believers get together to agree in prayer under the anointing:
The anointing of:
a collective group of saints
the anointing of the ministry
the anointing of the sanctuary

That doesn't mean that you cannot get off to yourself somewhere alone and pray and get healed. It's just that collective/corporal prayer is a God thing.  OK so praying alone is a God thing also.  The bottom line is that either way God will hear your prayer, but praying together as a group is more than just a suggestion in the Bible.

James 5:14-16
14.  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
 15.  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 16.  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Of course you can go to God in private prayer and pray for healing and God can move on the prayer of one.  If you have the kind of faith that can pray healing into existence, you also have the kind of faith that can get up and go to the front of the sanctuary and let your request be made known.

One more thing.  Holding out, not going to the front or not getting with other prayer warriors to pray for our healing is not the express will of God.
