My Wife and I lead the prayer ministry team in our church so this book about healing is very instructive for our situation. One thing that struck me from the outset was the authors desire to be obedient to the word of God and to be open to the Spirit of God. Something of her motivation can be seen in this quotation from page 293.
"What are our motives for praying for the sick? Is it because we want others to
see that God is moving through us and our ministry? Do we want others to think
that we are super-spiritual or superior over them? Are we in it for financial gain
or position? These are wrong motives. Jesus, on the other hand, was moved with
compassion to heal the sick. Compassion is love in action. We can develop within
us His heart of compassion for others, and when we do, we will start to see healings
manifest all around us. "And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude,
and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick" (Matt. 14:14)."
This is a faith building book both through the testimonies and the teaching contained in this book.
One does not have to endorse every single teaching in this book to be blessed through it. I am afraid that some will pick it up and find certain passages and then reject the whole, if they do this they will miss out on much God centered,Christ glorifying, Spirit empowered instruction. The overall thrust of this book is that anyone can be used of the Lord to bring healing to the sick.
The first chapter is rather long but it lays the foundation for the rest of the book, in this chapter many important facets of Biblical teaching are looked at. This chapter demonstrates one of the strengths of this book and that is the desire to do everything according to Scriptural principles, indeed this chapter encourages us only to accept what is in accord with biblical teaching.
The author demonstrates throughout the book a real openness to the leading of the Holy Spirit, time after time as she has listened to the Lord healings have happened. There is much in this book to build our faith, and to encourage us to follow the leading and example of the Lord Jesus. Becky Dvorak is a lady who because she is filled with the Holy Spirit has a heart of compassion for those who are sick and therefore brings the healing love and grace to the lives of many. The only question that we all have to answer is will we dare to believe?

Becky Dvorak has given us a very precious tool here that we should all carry in our belt. Her in-depth study of healing in the word, her powerful testimony of faith in action and her steadfast commitment to the truth allows us to receive from this book what she has spent years discovering.
With her insights into the scriptures that â€˜we think we know' and a lot of our wonky thinking straightened up Becky leaves us in no doubt as to the truth - we have maybe just never seen it quite like that before. The excitement and relief as your spirit shouts â€˜yes' in agreement is faith building to say the least.
Becky sets a foundation of truth on divine healing, how we are truly redeemed from the curse and who satan is, but more importantly who we are in Christ Jesus. The reality of the power of the tongue and the harsh reality of what we confess with our mouth being directly linked to our circumstances
Becky addresses what might hinder our healing with crystal clear explanations and deals with questions such as whether God is always willing to heal, clearing up many common misconceptions and confirming it with scripture.
Becky teaches faith principles from Jesus' life, the power of faith in action, the spoken word, agreement, persistence and more.
I have never read so many power-filled testimonies in one book all based on the principles that she teaches, this lady truly practices what she preaches.
The book completes with assignments to activate us in our faith, step by step instructions to get us out there - with every opportunity to begin a life of miracles.

I was given this book by Destiny Image in exchange for an honest review of the book. My opinions I will express are my own.
I did not want to stop reading this book. It is filled with personal testimonies of healing and miracles that have taken place in Becky and Dave's family and within their ministry. Using scripture the author shows who we are because of Christ and how we are redeemed from the curse. This book will encourage you and equip you to walk in the authority that has been given to us by the blood of Jesus Christ. Because of Him, we have the power to put our faith into action. By having a personal relationship with Holy Spirit we can have a life of signs, wonders and miracles. This book is a must read for all believers, it is full of the compassion and the love of Jesus Christ.
