(Q) Please differentiate the difference in that we are told to pray for others, whilst again we are told there must be the desire on the part of the one to be, wanting to be, helped or healed?
(A) The prayer for others is as the defense against influences that would hinder. The prayer and meditation – and the unison of purpose for healing – is as against an offense committed in the body to be overcome, or made every whit whole by His cleansing, forgiving, His life giving power. Hence the closer the union of purpose makes that as HE gave, “Thy FAITH has made thee whole.” Whether easier to say, “Thy sins be forgiven”, or “Take up thy bed and walk”? The forgiveness, the cleansing, is in Him. Union of purpose for the offensive, or offenses. The defense – rather as the calling of ALL powers as witness of the position.
