You're not going to receive any final deliverance or help without developing your own faith and your own prayer life.

I want you to call upon God. He will hear you. Praise God, He loves you. God doesn't love one person any more than He loves another person; because "He's no respector of persons" (Acts 10:34).

Many times people think, God will hear Brother Hagin pray, but He won't hear me. Yes He will. He doesn't like me any better than He loves you. He will hear your prayer just as quickly as He will mine. And He will answer your prayer just as quickly has He will mine. He's your God just as much as He's my God.

God doesn't belong to me any more than He belongs to you. God doesn't have any favorites.

We Shouldn't Either
People should not do it, but I've seen people who have favorite children or grandchildren. A grandparent may give all his or her attention to this one child, excluding the others. This creates confusion and problems. It turns relatives away from one another.

But I want you to know that God doesn't have any favorite children. Every one of us is His favorite! I want you to know you're a favorite of His, glory to God, because of Jesus.

Here's a confession for you to repeat out loud:

I am a child of God.
He is my Father.
He is my very own Father.
I am His very own child.
I am a favorite with my Father.
We are all favorites with Him.
He loves every one of us with the same love.
He will hear every one of us pray.
My Father loves me.
My Father hears me when I pray.
My Father answers
Oh, hallelujah, He is my Father.
He is my God.
Jesus is my Lord.
I am accepted in Jesus.

We preach and teach the Word of God from different directions, showing different methods of receiving healing, because it's all in the Word. Sometimes I think we talk about laying on of hands so much that people think that's all there is in the Bible. But that's just part of the biblical teaching on healing.

Nobody laid hands on Hezekiah. As far as I know, nobody prayed for him!

Jesus Is The Healer, Not Man
From October 1979 through March 1982, I conducted daily Prayer and Healing School services on the Rhema campus. However, I did not personally pray for people every day. Some days I would have our staff of healing instructors minister to the people.

On day a couple drove down from Missouri to attend the services. I was here and spoke, but I didn't lay hands on the sick that day. I asked the healing instructors to do it.

The woman was so disappointed. She went into a prayer room, and one of our instructors taught her that only the Lord does the healing. The woman, however, was crying. Her feelings were hurt because Brother Hagin hadn't laid hands on her and prayed for her healing. And her husband was angry about it.

But the instructor prayed for the woman and cursed the massive tumor that was in her body. Afterwards, the couple drove back to Missouri.

Later the woman wrote and thanked the instructor. She said she had cried nearly all the way home - her husband was still mad - because Brother Hagin hadn't laid hands on her.

She had been scheduled for surgery. When she returned to her physician, the tumor had disappeared - and Brother Hagin didn't do it. So now the woman was very apologetic. Healing instructors, have faith too, praise God.

After all, the Bible doesn't say, "These signs shall follow Brother Hagin. He's the only one who will lay hands on the sick." No, it says, "These signs shall follow them that believe" (Mark 16:17).

You see, Jesus is the Healer, not man.
