The images above show the possibilities and extremes of prayer. The praying hands on the left and right are located at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK, and stand 60 feet tall and weigh 30 tons. The praying hand in the middle is Briella Angsomwine's small right infant hand on her head. We believe God had her lay her hand on her head the day she was born. The truth is, prayer represents our act and obedience of trusting in a God who hears, cares, and responds to our needs.
Let everything that hath breathe praise the Lord
The bible states that everything that has breathe can and should praise the Lord (Psalm 150:6). This truth along with the reality that all our body parts have breath in them; allow us to recognize that bones can praise the Lord, body organs can priase the Lord, and any other thing with breath can praise the Lord. Now imagine the reality that our bones came from the dust of the earth, and Jesus states that stones (which also come from the earth) can cry out to God (Luke 19:40). This all indicates that our bones can hear, cry out, and praise the Lord. This is how the prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel chapter 37 was able to revive dry bones and make them hear the word of the Lord (Ezekiel 37:4).
The Images below show the anatomy of bones and eahc bone has blood flowing through the center of the bone and all bone marrow has blood cells. With blood make up of 60% water, our bones contain water and blood, and this called 'living tissue'. Ths living tissue can thus praise the Lord.
As a living tissue with blood and water, is important to note that bones and other body parts can be spoken to (via prayer/prophecy), and they can make a heavenly noise to God. Jesus would not have stated that stones can cry out if they could not, and Ezekiel would not have spoken to bones if they could not hear and be revived. This is the essence of what Kind David stated in Psalms 35:10 "All my bones will say, "LORD, who is like you? Who delivers the weak from the one who is stronger than he, and the weak and the needy from the one who wants to rob him?" Imagine what God desires to do, if we can let our living and breathing body parts praise and listen to the voice of the Lord. We may witness what Ezekiel did, and witness all the miracles that Jesus did. When Jesus died and He spoke and said 'It is Finshed' many dead people got out of their graves and walked into Jerusalem (Matt. 27:53) . This means that the dead bones 'heard' the word of the Lord, no different then the bones in Ezekiel 37.
This concept is exciting and gives hope for almost any type of bone related healing. This is why our prayer and Briella's prayer continues to be that there be many more people seeing their bones and ligaments healed. We believe God's word and want to witness far more people healed and their bones revived and renewed. It is not by coincidence that God foretold that Jesus's bones would not be broken.
Below are scripture passages that will also illuminate the reality that healing should be more normal that not. Below the scripture passages are a few articles about looking to God's heaing power as an health care option. We call it GodCare.
