Author Archives: A Sceptical Medium
There seems to be some strange idea amongst entertainment mediums that we must never say prayers or send healing thoughts to those who are sick or in need. I’ve never heard such nonsense in my life. Where do they get this rubbish from? They say it is unethical to send prayers or healing to anyone who hasn’t asked for it and that their permission must be obtained. Have you ever heard anything so daft in your life?
Since when was it wrong or unethical to send loving thoughts to another living being in need? By their weird ways of thinking, if someone is in a coma, unconscious due to assault, injury or illness, they must never be prayed for or having healing sent to them. How on earth can they say this would be unethical?
Now, talking of ethics, these same people think nothing of charging lots of money for readings or talking to you on Skype, answering your questions or anything else asked of them, but it is unethical to pray for others? Hmmm. Mind you, none of these people use the words pray, God, Jesus or anything else. I think it is assumed they are the healers judging by this omission.
These are people who often say they are doing God’s work, use His name, but then go against what He teaches us. So basically, they’re saying God and Jesus are wrong by telling us to pray for healing for others, but these man taught mediums and healers seeking self glorification are right? I don’t think so.
“…pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working” James 5:16 ESV
“…But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!…” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 ESV
“…when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before” Job 42:10
Above is just a little from the Bible saying about praying for others. I listen to God not man with their weird ideas and made up ways done for their own glorification and to make them sound spiritual beings. If you want to pray for another and if it is done with purity and good intent, then God will listen and nowhere did He say we had to ask anyone’s permission first!
As for the ones who charge for it – well…
Maybe it is time all these people professing to do God’s work actually read their Bible’s and found out what God’s work really is!
Intercession (Definition) - the action of intervening on behalf of another - The act of intervening or mediating between differing parties; particularly the act of praying to God on behalf of another person.
