SID: Steve, you talk about the delight that God has in you praying for the sick, the delight that you get back from traveling international, praying for thousands of people, having others pray for thousands of people, and you can’t get wait to get out to pray for that one person. And you use a word that I want you to talk about: “rescue.”

 

STEVE: I think rescue is a great definition for salvation, actually. And I feel like where the rhythm of God, where Jesus is moving, I always see rescue and reconciliation, and restoration. He rescues lives. There’s two ways to see it. As recently as, I don’t know, two, three weeks ago, little girl, born deaf, someone prayed for her, her ears opened, and she could hear and speak. We can say, oh her ears got healed. I’d say her life got rescued. All her possibilities, all her future, everything changed.

 

SID: Total transformation.

 

STEVE: In a moment.

 

SID: And he’s saying that you can do this. You don’t have to be a spectator anymore.

 

STEVE: Amen.

 

SID: I mean, you are hired. Come into the play. Take the starring role because, do you remember what God said to Steve? I’ve been waiting for so long for someone to pray for this person. There are people all around you that God is just waiting for someone to release his Kingdom and that someone is you. You are qualified. Tell me, teach just for a moment from one scripture and then pray for the sick.

 

STEVE: In Mark 1:40-41, the leper came to Jesus and he says, “He fell on his knees and he begged him.” He says, “If you’re willing you can make me clean. And Jesus looked at him, filled with compassion, and he said, “‘I am willing.'” The problem we have is the English language doesn’t have the richness of the Greek. He said, “I am palo,” which means not only willingness, volition, but it means pleasure. He was saying you don’t have to beg me. I’m pleased to heal you. When we get a hold of this it changes the way we pray. Now let me pray for folks out there because the Lord is going to heal you right now. So I encourage you, put your hand on that part of your body where you’ve got pain or where there is sickness and just let the Lord come to you right now. In the name of Jesus Christ, I command this pain to leave. I command pain to leave your right hip. I command the pain to leave your neck. The neck spurs go right now. I tell migraines to go right now. I speak to the right ear that’s been blocked. It opens in the name of Jesus. I tell all pain in your body to go. I tell all sickness to go in the name of Jesus Christ and I release the power of Heaven, the Divine life of Jesus into your body. Thank you, Lord.

 

SID: And I’m hearing that in your bones there are pain, anywhere in your body, in your bones there is pain. I command that pain to go in Jesus’ name. Steve, you say that many people, after they get your teaching, they say this is what I was made for.

 

STEVE: Yes.

 

SID: You told me that that would delight God. That has to so delight you, too.

 

STEVE: It does. It does. And you know, Sid, that’s part of why I go all over the developing world. We’ve taken over 1300 people with us on these journeys of compassion because their lives change, not just for 12 days, but when they go home. And it’s also why I go and I do these impact weekends because people’s lives change. They begin to understand the Gospel is bigger than they ever thought it was and that Jesus is inviting us to enter right into the rhythm of it.

 

SID: You say there is a question that anyone can ask that changes everything. What is that question?

 

STEVE: This is the question I thought all over the world. It’s five simple words: “May I pray for you?” And the problem is we, oh that’s too simple. But Christian sociologists tell us that 95 percent of believers never once in their life ask that question outside the safety of their church building or their home. When we ask that question, the Word becomes flesh. The ideal becomes realm. The Kingdom of God is released. I encourage every viewer to take a deep breath, step over the nervousness, which is normal, and the dry mouth, which is normal, and when you hear somebody at the coffee shop two tables over telling their friend, I’ve had this headache for three days, instead of thinking that’s too bad, you walk over and say, “Excuse me, I couldn’t help but hear. May I pray for you?”

 

SID: Let me tell you how faith is spelled: R-I-S-K. But guess what? After you pray for your first 200 people, you will delight in seeing lives transformed. You will delight in rescuing people. I appoint you to be normal, normal as defined by the Bible.
