How to Pray to be Healed of Cancer, Part 1

(*** Also new *** Check out How to Pray to be Healed of Cancer, Part 2.)

Life is short, science is long; opportunity is elusive, experience is dangerous, judgment is difficult. It is not enough for the physician to do what is necessary, but the patient and attendants must do their part as well, and circumstances must be favorable. –Hippocrates, from Aphorisms, Translated from the Greek by J. Chadwick and W. N. Mann. 

The idea of healing has never been completely medicalized. It is true that the surgeon’s knife can be called healing, but even surgeons will allow that whereas cutting may sometimes be necessary for healing it is never sufficient. This is because we are aware that healing involves our minds and our feeling—our spirits—as well as our bodies. –The Healing Arts, edited by R. S. Downie, p. 171.

From O. Henry’s The Last Leaf:

SUE: How is she, Doctor?

DOCTOR: Not good. Not good at all, I’m afraid. She has one chance in, let us say, ten. And that chance is for her to want to live.

SUE: Is there anything that I can do to help, Doctor?

DOCTOR: The little lady has made up her mind that she’s not going to get well. Has she anything on her mind?

SUE: She… well, she wanted to paint the Bay of Naples someday.

DOCTOR: Paint? What foolishness! Has she anything on her mind worth thinking about twice? A man, for instance?

SUE: A man? No, doctor, there’s nothing of that kind.

DOCTOR: Well, I’ll do everything that I can. But when a patient gives up hope, medicine doesn’t help much. [PAUSE] What can you do to help? Well, if you can get her to show some interest in something, even the new winter styles in coat sleeves, then I’ll promise you a one-in-five chance for her, instead of one-in-ten.

Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health and former Director of the Human Genome Project, recently wrote:

It is still the case, nearly 40 years into the war on cancer, that most of the treatments we use represent blunt instruments. Yes, they attack the cancer cell by targeting its rapid growth, but they inflict serious collateral damage to other, normally growing cells, particularly in the bone marrow and in the gastrointestinal tract. Our cancer therapy is all too often like carpet bombing. Instead we need smart bombs. But a bomb can be smart only if you know the precise target. Until recently, we have had an inadequate understanding of what those ideal targets might be.  –The Language of Life, p. 126ff.

Medical science has learned that the weapons it uses today are not the only treatments, or even the most effective treatments, that could be used. For example, medical science has found that to be successful in combating cancer, cancer must be targeted more precisely than previous tools allowed. Medical researchers are continually in the process of developing new drugs and approaches to better target specific types of cancers. However, a multitude of problems face researchers, including the multitude of types of cancers, the costly and lengthy required patient trial periods, and the uncertain FDA approval process. While we need what medical science offers, we are not limited by what it cannot offer. In addition to the benefits of medical science, we can precisely target cancer through focused prayer.

Focus

To be successful in combating cancer through prayer, we must target precisely also. In the past, we simply have not known how to target our prayers against cancer. Cancer has been an amorphous disease that resided somewhere in our body. Now, we understand most, if not all, of the genetic and biological processes that are involved in the development and sustainment of cancer in our body. If we can understand how our genetic and biological processes are causing vulnerabilities, we can pray specifically for those vulnerable processes to be strengthened.

Why do we need to pray specifically? When Jesus’ disciples realized they didn’t know how to pray, they asked Him to teach them. His response? “When you pray, pray like this…” He then shared a prayer with detailed requests to God for daily sustenance (specifically, bread), forgiveness for wrong actions, guidance to avoid temptations, and deliverance from the evil one (Matthew 6:9-13). James teaches us to confess our sins to one another that we may be healed (James 5:16). It is the specificity of confession that gives the prayer power, for a blanket confession—“I’m sorry if I did anything wrong”—contains no admission of guilt, offers no details and, as a result, provides no cleansing or healing.

The power of the Word of God is in its ability to intimately impact our lives. However, with no specificity there is little impact. We pray, making our requests known to God, in specifics, except when we don’t know how to pray or what to pray for. Does God hear our requests when we pray in broad generalities? Of course he does. But his request to us? Be more specific: You have not because you ask not (James 4:2).

So we need to be very specific when praying against cancer. To do that, we need to understand not only the genetic and biological processes of cancer, but we also need to recognize cancer’s apparent “malicious intent.” Cancer cells do not want to coexist with you in your body—they want to control and consume it. The goal of cancer is not to inconvenience you: Its purpose is to steal, kill and destroy your life. Your goal should never be to “learn to live with cancer.” Cancer cells are enemies of your body’s normal, healthy processes. Your goal should be to rid your body completely of these destructive invaders.

Beyond a Physical Cure

Because it is apparent there is a malevolent “intent” behind cancer, it should be obvious that medicine alone cannot win the battle. There is a deeper dimension involved—a spiritual dimension. The battle against cancer must be won in the spiritual dimension as well as in the physical dimension. This is why medicine alone is insufficient. Yes, the battle must be fought in the physical world. But “our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against principalities, against authorities, against the universal lords of this darkness, against spiritual powers of wickedness in the heavenlies” (Ephesians 6:10, Darby translation).

So we are going to learn how to pray specifically, so that we can fight the battle in the spiritual realm as well as in the physical body. And, in fact, our prayers are going to be very focused on physical processes that are malfunctioning (or, as we shall see, “superfunctioning”), operating outside the limits, controls and boundaries God created in our bodies as a defense against these very kinds of attacks.

Is There a Builder in the House?

However, before we discuss targeted prayer, let’s discuss why we should pray. Why is prayer even a viable option against something as formidable as cancer? In his groundbreaking book, One Renegade Cell: The Quest for the Origin of Cancer, medical researcher Robert Weinberg states that the body is “a highly complex society of rather autonomous cells” (p. 2). He goes on to say that the danger from cancer lies in the fact that there is an “absence of a single overseeing master builder, which seems to put the whole enterprise at risk” (p. 2). His point is that the body’s cells appear to primarily act under their own control or under the influence of other cells, but not under any identifiable centralized control. Because of this lack of oversight and control, cells can run amok without any accountability or correction.

If the lack of oversight and control by a single “master builder” is what provides the biological environment that cancer cells need to develop and flourish, then putting our body and its biological processes in the hands of a Master Builder through prayer, and envisioning the Master Builder doing the necessary “repair work,” can provide a remarkably different scenario. The confession of the Psalmist “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) acknowledges the Master Builder’s central role in our biological makeup.

And, as we will see, if the independent renegade activities of our cells are hallmarks of cancer development, then the dependent, obedient activities of our cells are hallmarks of bodily health. Just as rebellion in the spiritual realm leads to death and destruction, so also does rebellion in our physical body processes. And just as obedience and submission lead to spiritual wholeness and wellness, so also does yieldedness in our physical body processes. Jesus said, “You cannot serve two masters…” (Matthew 6:24) and “…a house divided against itself cannot stand” (Matthew 12:25b). This “rebellion” is the essence of cancer development. The targets of our prayers will vary; the purpose of our prayers will not: we are praying for our body and all its cells and processes to come into obedience to the Master Builder (2 Corinthians 10:5).

The Commander’s Intent

An example of an environment where there is a “master” whose will is to be obeyed by potentially rebellious subordinates is the military. Each soldier is “rather autonomous” and is free to make his/her own choices. However, unless each soldier follows orders, chaos and destruction can—and will—result. So how does the military maintain order in the face of attack? First, they train the soldiers to do their assigned tasks no matter what. Second, they clearly communicate the commander’s intent to the soldiers. What is the “commander’s intent”? Here’s how the United States Army puts it:

The commander’s intent describes the desired end state. It is a concise statement of the purpose of the operation and must be understood two echelons below the issuing commander…It is the single unifying focus [italics mine] for all subordinate elements…Its purpose is to focus subordinates on the desired end state.” (Source: FM 100-5 Operations, Department of the Army, 1993)

Misunderstanding the commander’s intent can lead to problems at all levels. At the staff level, if the staff as a whole or a particular staff section misunderstands the intent, they can waste an inordinate amount of time in developing courses of action that do not conform with how the commander visualizes the battle and how he sees his unit positioned to conduct future operations. At the subordinate commander level, misunderstanding of intent may lead to a subordinate unit plan that fails to achieve the superior commander’s goals for that operation. (Source: Evolution of Commander’s Intent in the US Military, Dr. Newton Howard, http://www.c4ads.org/sites/default/files/Intent_USMilitary_v4.PDF)

So what is the “commander’s intent” for our body?

The commander’s intent for our body is that health and well-being pervade our being, both physically and spiritually. Our commander’s intent is written in 3 John 2 “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along.” Physical health and spiritual well-being go hand in hand. If we misunderstand the commander’s intent, we can end up wasting time and resources that delay or even thwart the fulfillment of the commander’s intent for our well-being.

Where to Focus?

Robert Weinberg describes how cancer develops in our body. In One Renegade Cell, he identifies the significant activities, or hallmarks, that must occur in our biological and genetic processes for cancer to exist. If these hallmarks are the processes that allow cancer to exist, then these hallmarks are the very processes where cancer development and sustainment can be stopped. If there are specific processes where focusing our prayer efforts can make the greatest impact, the hallmarks of cancer are the precise targets. Here are the processes where cancer, like water relentlessly seeking a path, continuously attacks our body until it finds its way through by overcoming and overpowering our body’s defenses.

It is here that we need to focus our prayers: that the defenses God has built into our body to protect us from destruction will be strengthened to do their work. Like Moses’ hands (Exodus 17:12), our body’s defenses need to be lifted up so they can prevail against the onslaught of the enemy.

Can—or maybe better, does—the enemy attack us at the microbiological level? Ralph Winter has made the following observations: “I used to be aware that we have a major enemy in this world, Satan, but I was unaware of the extent of his infiltration of God’s creation. In my earlier years I never stopped to think just exactly how God might be involved in the continuous creation of life, how His angels, at His bidding, might be constantly working at the DNA level to make modifications even as Satan’s dark angels were constantly working cleverly and ‘diabolically’ to tear down the marvelous beauty of God’s design” (http://www.missionfrontiers.org/issue/article/editorial-comment57)  We have a diabolical enemy who comes to “steal, kill and destroy” us (John 10:10a), even by attacking us through our own DNA. We had better be both aware and armed to do battle. We have the promise of a savior who will fight with us and for us who came that we “might have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10b).

The Weapons of Our Warfare

  1. Worshipful Prayer
  2. Persevering Prayer
  3. Envisioning Prayer
  4. Praying the Word

The Hallmarks of Cancer

Illustrated in Figure 1 are the seven hallmarks of cancer, six identified by Weinberg and Hanahan, and the seventh, Inflammatory Microenvironment, later identified by Alberto Montovani. While no hallmark is sufficient on its own to allow the production of cancer cells, a variety of sequences of the hallmarks’ processes is sufficient. However, our concern is not with the sequence of the processes. Rather, our concern is simple: we use the tools God has given us to put a stop to the malfunctioning of each of these processes in our body.

We will discuss each hallmark in detail so that you will understand 1) its proper functioning, 2) how its process is hijacked in cancer-making, 3) how medical science approaches a solution, and 4) what spiritual view we can take to restore our cells’ proper functioning. What Weinberg and Hanahan call hallmarks are, in reality, strongholds. These are the processes that allow cancer to begin and continue to grow in our body. These strongholds need to be overcome, or pulled down. The Bible says that “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4, KJV). We need to understand both the strongholds and the weapons of our warfare so that the strongholds can be pulled down and our cells can return to their normal functioning.

We also need to understand how a spiritual view differs from the medical approach to overcome each stronghold, or hallmark. The approaches are different, but not oppositional. This means that the medical approach and the spiritual view to overcome each stronghold can complement each other. God has provided medical means as well as spiritual means as resources for us to become “more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37). We will first look at the medical approach to overcome each stronghold, or hallmark; then we will look at the spiritual view to overcome each stronghold.

In Figure 1 below, the outer circle shows the Seven Hallmarks of Cancer. The inner circle shows the actions that a medical approach seeks to provide in order to overcome each stronghold.

The Seven Hallmarks of Cancer, The Medical Approaches and The Spiritual Views

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 1: Self-Sufficiency in Growth Signals

The Problem Picture: The Accelerator is Stuck

The symbol of this hallmark is a bent arrow, indicating that a signal that was sent out was diverted. This hallmark is the “accelerator pedal” process. Cells are normally quiescent until they receive signals from outside themselves to replicate. Normal cells don’t initiate their own growth. However, with this hallmark, no outside signal is required to begin the growth cycle. The cell becomes self-sufficient, providing itself with its own growth signals. Even though all the signals to the cell signal “no growth,” the cell continues to divide. The accelerator is stuck to the floor. The cell continues to multiply because it no longer needs an external stimulus to signal growth.

The Medical Approach: Release the Accelerator

The Spiritual View: See How Much God Loves You

This target for prayer is to reorient the renegade cells to come under the lordship of Jesus. Our prayer focus is for cells to become obedient to Christ and follow only His direction for growth. The spiritual view does not deal with the mechanics of “unsticking” the accelerator; the spiritual view confronts the rebellious nature of the cells and sees them lining up in orderly obedience to Jesus. We see both the healing hand of Jesus and the stern command of Jesus enforcing the commander’s intent for the body created in His image.

God Revealed as: Jehovah Tsidkenu (The Lord is My Righteousness)

Biblical Paradigm: The Temptation, Fall, and Redemption

Scripture: Genesis 3:1-24; Matthew 1:21; Romans 5:17

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 2: Insensitivity to Growth Inhibitors

The Problem Picture: The Brakes Don’t Work

The symbol of this hallmark is a stop sign, with the circle-backslash symbol over it, indicating its intent has been canceled. The normal biological process of cell replication has two “pedals”: an accelerator and a brake. The brake pedal signifies the process that puts a stop to out-of-control cell replication. When the accelerator appears to be “stuck,” the braking process is initiated to stop the growth. However, what happens is that the brakes fail, and the growth process continues along uninhibited. If the braking process—growth inhibitors—works, then cancer cells cannot form.

The Medical Approach: Repair the Brakes

The Spiritual View: See God’s Protection

The second target of our prayer is for the success of the braking process in our body. Our prayer is that when cells begin to multiply, the growth inhibitor processes in our body function properly. We need to pray for the brakes to operate normally and put a halt to out of control growth.

God Revealed as: Jehovah Shalom (The Lord is My Peace)

Biblical Paradigm: Daniel in the Lions’ Den

Scripture: Daniel 6:1-27

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 3: Inflammatory Microenvironment

The Problem Picture: Elevated Tissue Temperatures

The Medical Approach: Reduce the Heat

The Spiritual View: See the Heat Held Harmless

God Revealed as: Jehovah Mephalti (The Lord is My Deliverer)

Biblical Paradigm: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

Scripture: Daniel 3:13-29

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 4: Tissue Invasion and Metastasis

The Problem Picture: Cells Migrate across Boundaries

The Medical Approach: Remove the Tumor and Tissue

The Spiritual View: See a Standard Raised

God Revealed as: Jehovah Nissi (The Lord is My Banner)

Biblical Paradigm: Moses with Aaron and Hur

Scripture: Exodus 17:8-16

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 5: Evasion of Apoptosis

The Problem Picture: Invaded Cells Won’t Self-Destruct

The Medical Approach: Re-establish Cell Self-Sacrifice

The Spiritual View: See the Demise of the Ungodly

God Revealed as: Jehovah Makkeh (The Lord Who Smites)

Biblical Paradigm: Noah and the Flood

Scripture: Genesis 6:5, 7-8, 11-13; 7:21-23; 8:15-17; 9:1-2

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 6: Sustained Angiogenesis

The Problem Picture: New Blood Supply Keeps Coming

The Medical Approach: Retard the Blood Supply

The Spiritual View: See Strongholds Fall

God Revealed as: Jehovah Jireh (The Lord is My Provider)

Biblical Paradigm: Joshua and Jericho

Scripture: Joshua 6:1-27

—————————————————————————————————————————

Hallmark 7: Limitless Replicative Potential

The Problem Picture: Cells Multiply Endlessly

The Medical Approach: Reinstate Reproductive Limits

The Spiritual View: See the Enemy Turned On Itself

God Revealed as: Jehovah Sabaoth (The Lord is My Protector)

Biblical Paradigm: Jehoshaphat

Scripture: 2 Chronicles 20:1-30

    I take this opportunity to ask for you to pray for my friend who is suffering from stomach cancer, it was detected last year in the month of october 2011 and since then he is under going medication for his treatment. the doctors have given only 50% chance of his survival, if the medication that he is undergoing works and has positive effect on his body then they will take his treatment further and cure him totally. i on the other hand continuously pray for his cure and also pray that the cancer does not spread any more and is totally eradicated from his bodt. the medicines have shown effect on his body to some extent and i pray that his treatment goes further and he is cured totally. Kindly take my intentions and pray for my friend for his total recovery. Thanks.

    Please pray for the healing of my mother. She has been fighting cancer in multiple forms since 2005. It is now in her liver and the doctors have given up hope and prescribe her only palliative care. I pray to banish this spirit of doubt circling my family. I am so happy I came upon this website. The Lord wants her healthy and healed and I will pray and meditate until she is. Thank you very much for these hallmarks!

    Please pray for me. My doctor claim that I have stage 4 breast cancer and he said it has spread to other parts of my body. I am 38 years old with 2 kids, but I know that doctor Jesus has the final say so and that he can perform a miracle. I want to be able to live a normal life. Please pray hard that when I get my CTSCAN, that they find no trace of cancer. Thank you, in Jesus name, Amen.

    • Gina permalink

      My prayers are with you, Tammy! Don’t give up and get to fighting back with prayer and also look into a change of diet. I have been told several times that cutting out sugar of all kinds will help kill the cancer cells! This means no refined sugars of any kind, including any grain that God gave color to that is stripped of its color and turned white. (Like white bread, english muffins, most cereals, pasta…things like that.

      May you be blessed with good health and peace of mind soon!

    To all on this site: I will keep you and all your loved ones in my prayers!

    I also ask of you all to pray for my sweet Mother, Lillian, for a complete recovery from this evil invader of her body, this horrid disease. In addition to colon cancer that spread to her lymph nodes and liver, she has recently experienced a spinal fracture, and she needs a knee replacement on one leg and the other has a blood clot which can’t be treated with blood thinners because she is bleeding internally, but the doctors can’t find the source. May God give the doctors the wisdom to find and stop the source of the bleeding is or was coming from and may it not be serious (the first time she had this, it was the tumor that was undiagnosed that was bleeding), find a way to and successfully strengthen her knees and back to help her walk on her own, and most of all…defeat the cancer that she has been fighting and win this war on the evil cancer anywhere it could be in her body so that it never appears again. Please, Sweet Jesus, hear my prayer and heal my Mom and keep her strong and healthy in body, mind and spirit through everything! Amen!

    Thank you!

    I originally read this on June ‎18, ‎2013 and in reading it now a nd IMO an important part is no longer here.

    To successfully combat cancer through prayer, we must pray precisely. Our genetic and biological processes are causing vulnerabilities, we can pray specifically for those vulnerable processes to be strengthened.

    How do we pray specifically? When Jesus’ disciples realized they didn’t know how to pray, they asked Him to teach them. His response? “When you pray, pray like this…” He then shared a prayer with detailed requests to God for daily sustenance (specifically, bread), forgiveness for wrong actions, guidance to avoid temptations, and deliverance from the evil one (Matthew 6:9-13). James teaches us to confess our sins to one another that we may be healed (James 5:16). It is the specificity of confession that gives the prayer power, for a blanket confession—“I’m sorry if I did anything wrong”—contains no admission of guilt, offers no details and, as a result, provides no cleansing or healing.

    Please join us in praying for Ernest Hengst. He has been dx with pancreatic cancer stage 4. In the physical this is a death sentence, but we know our Heavenly Father is the giver of life. Please, please agree with us in prayer for a supernatural healing. Thank you

  36. Please pray for me, I have been diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in April 2013 and it has spread to my liver and lymph nodes around my stomach.

    Doctor has removed the tumor in my colon but was told the liver was inoperable and my treatment is only palliative.

    My condition is under control via chemotherapy at this point but I know true healing only comes from God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

    Please pray for me that the cancer cells, in the name of Jesus will be completely destroyed, leaving only healthy cells in my body to thrive. I don’t need doctors to declare I am healed. I just need God to tell me I am healed!

    I am not ready to die yet and want to be a blessing to others and do God’s work for many years to come.

    Thank you.

    Elna and Dick Liebenberg South Africa

    Please everyone pray for God to heal my sister from aggressive malignant mesothelioma cancer and to heal and restore her husband from damage caused by a massive stroke that all happened in the beginning of April 2013, almost on the same day. The doctors have given Elna only a few months to live. Please pray for divine healing for Elna and Dick Liebenberg. Their lives have been ripped to pieces overnight. Elna’s entire life was spend Sunday to Sunday to go to church to fetch her “spiritual food parcel” for the week ahead. Thank you for taking the time to read my request, but more importantly, thank you for your prayers. Carina

    Please pray for my girlfriend, Velen Rodriguez, to be healed from pre-cervical cancer. I ask the Lord to come into her life, soul and body, and help her overcome this evil spiritually by allowing God to attack this disease. We have 3 daughters together but have not been married due to circumstances in paperwork. I also ask God to go into her body with love for her and as a Warrior towards the cancer and the Protector of her life. My name is Rene and I also think I may have esophageal cancer because of symptoms I have of constant heartburn and a feeling of something stuck in my throat from my throat to my chest. I ask God to show His love, protection and good health for both of us and for all other families suffering with the devil’s invasion into our perfectly formed bodies that God gave us as a gift. Please pray for Velen and I so that we could see our daughters, ages 11, 8 and 6 grow up. I will also tell Velen that we should go to confession to free ourselves and make our prayers and yours more pronounced to God. Thank you everyone, and God bless you.
