The Lord Jesus Christ is the light that will drive the darkness away.
"I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12).
"I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness" (John 12:46).
He laid down his life on the cross and shed his blood to pay the penalty of all our sins. Then he was raised from the dead and ascended to the throne of God to plead with God our Father on our behalf (1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Hebrews chapter 2; 1 John chapter 2).
He has given us power by the gift of the Holy Ghost:
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:2-4).
If you draw near to God (only by Jesus Christ) the devil has no hold on you:
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7).
Prayer for Healing: I pray against sickness in my coming and going. I pray against any form of sickness coming near my home or anywhere near my vicinity. I claim my healing against sickle cell anemia, infirmity, and illnesses in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. I declare by the power and holy authority of the Holy Ghost that no illnesses spirit or sickness attack from the enemy shall prevail against me in Jesus's mighty name. I confess Jesus Christ as my infinite Healer, and by His holy stripes and mighty authority, I declare that I am totally healed from every sickness and illnesses. I render every satanic sickness power the occult can possibly use against me useless. I rebuke every spiritual foundation of sickness, and I command every infirmities spirit to bow down right now to the authority that is in the name of Jesus Christ. I pray against sickness in any form or shape. I say with confidence that I am the healed of the LORD Jesus Christ. I cover myself and family with Christ's precious holy blood, and I declare by His holy might and righteousness dominion authority that it shall continue to be well with me and my family in all dominion, dimensional realms. I release the judgement fire of the Holy Ghost upon every stubborn spirit of sickness and illnesses. I forbid by the authority of the Holy Ghost any reoccurrence of sickness in my life. I claim immunity for me and for my family against every form of sicknesses with the atonement blood of Jesus Christ. I declare that we carry the mark of Christ, therefore, let no infirmities spirits ever trouble us! In Jesus of Nazareth holy name and by His righteous authority I have decreed and declared! Amen!!! Pray this every day till your faith grows huge on God's Promises to us. Find in Ezekiel 37 the story of the bones. We have bones of faith everywhere in our lives. Begin to prophesy to the bones. Call them to stand up and become an army that scares demons, in the name of Jesus! M.
Prayed for you and your family. God bless you!

Brother Norman Walker Butch - Brother Adam is directing you right where you need to focus. Your Blessings from God. Your wife, whom You Love. Love her even more. You have a body that still works - okay, not so well anymore, but use what you have. I am right on your heels in age. Greet your wife with a smile and a loving kiss on her hand. Treat her as Christ treats the Body of Christ - with total love. Ignore what is happening in this world, because God has allowed it to happen. He allows and disallows to fulfill the Scriptures. Check the weather, and then read your Scriptures. Pray to God throughout the day. Then, smile at your wife and let her know the love you have for her. Sit down and eat every meal with her. Let her know that your knees are still weak for her. Keep loving God, love yourself for whom Jesus gave His life. You are special, and so is your wife. Love your wife. Keep the Scriptures close to your heart. The time is indeed near for Jesus. God bless your days my brother.
Adam, thank you very much and I want to tell you that you are right on! I have thought about all the things you just said. Instead of me changing everything I just sit and feel sorry for myself and ask God to make me happy! I also have been really worried about what is going on in this country a lot and I need to stop because there is not one thing I can do about it at all! If we have the Holy Father then we really do not have anything to worry about at all! Thanks again and I am going to try to change the way I look at things now! I wish the best for you Adam and really this is not me at all, I was always wide open and never looked back and now I have changed so much since I have got older! Thanks!
Hi Norman, While that physical challenge would be an adjustment to deal with and while you can find sympathy and prayers, I would like to challenge you in a different way which God already gave us freewill to change: our outlook and attitude. The fact is life is short and we all have limitations and challenges, some seen, some hidden. Grass is greener on the other side too. You admitted that you had 50 years of active fun with your family- that's amazing! Many people don't even get to experience what that's like to be married like you and many are lonely like me who never found a person to love. What I don't understand is how you think that having a physical limitation automatically means you can't be happy? Who says? Or that it means your 'no good for her'?! Where does that thought even come from? Does it come from God or satan? It's certainly not God, because all are valuable in his sight. Have you seen the youtube video of the motivational speaker with no arms and legs who travels the world and has a fulfilling life? Why do you think he's happy and he's overflowing with blessings, but you can actually still walk but are giving up on yourself? Do you think people who are disabled or in wheelchairs can't be happy? What I suggest is to challenge your interpretation of your condition. Count your blessings, do what Philippians 4 says. Yes, pray, but the best you can do for your wife is to have a positive mental outlook. It takes practice, but you already have power over these emotions which come from false interpretations. You do this by replacing your interpretation with a more positive and realistic interpretation, practice this and thinking how blessed you are, practice having compassion for all the others in this world who don't have as much as you. Learn from those who have found the 'secret' of being content in all situations, like Paul, and the disabled motivational speaker. Don't believe the enemy's lies about your value. You must fight back. God bless.
