What would you do if you were suddenly called to the hospital for a dear loved one who had been in an accident, and whose life was hanging by a thread? How would you pray? What could you do? What do you do when short prayers do not seem to get the job done? What do you do when you need answers?
One answer is Don Mann’s new book, Battle Prayer for Healing, Field Manual II, which Don describes how to use in this video series. Rather than a theoretical discussion of Christian Divine Healing, it is a tool for ordinary Christians, pastors and workers to get answers in prayer for healing.
The book is of two main parts. First are various teachings and affirmations to help stir you up into believing God to heal. The second is the Battle Prayer for Healing itself for use in time of need. The Battle Prayer for Healing has 28 different prayers, some short and some long. Combined they give tools to minister for seconds, minutes, hours, days or weeks as necessary.
Pastors first used the shorter version consisting of just the Battle Prayer for Healing, which was the Field Manual 1. They then requested more material so they could use it for teaching and longer times of personal development.
So Don added teaching sections, healing scriptures, faith-building affirmations, and a glossary of commonly misunderstood Bible terms. All aimed for a deeper understanding of God’s healing promises and to build confidence per 1 John 5:14-15. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us- whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him”. Thus the Field Manual II was born.
The name and attitude for Battle Prayer came from Rev. Jay Snell [jaysnell.org]. For this book, the concept of the Battle Prayer for Healing, Field Manual II is based on the teachings of Rev. John G. Lake (1870-1935) who between 1914 and 1920 produced 100,000 verified divine healings over 5 years in Spokane, Washington.
Dr. Lake’s results are well documented and verified by many, many former skeptics of his day. 100,000 healed over 5 years are around 80 healed per day! Most who came were “Last Chancers,” those who physicians had sent home to die or as incurable. Then an investigation followed with the conclusion, “Not half has been told.”
Dr. Lake’s principle for prayer was: 1 Cor 15:58 ”Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” You just have to labor enough to get results. Luke 18:1 “And he (Jesus) spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”
John G. Lake learned (and as demonstrated by many including Rev. Curry Blake in our time [jglm.org] in the follow-on ministry of Dr. Lake) that if God did not give a miracle today, He will give healing and a miracle tomorrow – every day.
Rev. Lake practiced that if someone came every day for 30 days for dominion-in-Jesus prayer, somewhere in that time of 30 days they would see the manifestation of God’s healing power to blast the work of the devil right out of the person’s life. For some, 30 days were not enough, so they even came daily for 75 and 90 days till they were fully healed.
They and Rev. Lake would not give up until the victory was won – this is Godly tenacity. The results were dramatic and powerful of God against every kind of sickness, disease, infirmity, deformity, accident damage and problems.
Don describes some of his own testimony and the ministry of Dr. Lake, and then explains how his concepts are incorporated into this “Pastor Designed-Pastor Tested” ministry tool. Written in simple terms, anyone can use it to see God deliver His wonderful love in divine healing because of the work of Jesus Christ by the cross.
For most of his life Don has been in the scientific and business worlds as a lay Christian worker who loves to study the Bible and learn how to work with God to make the world a better place to His glory in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. 2 Tim 3:15 "And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
Don was raised a Catholic in the South, and then in the late 70’s impacted by the Catholic Charismatic Renewal with the Baptism in Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues, and numerous signs and wonders. Over the years he has been licensed by several denominations and has led prayer groups, home churches, half-way houses, Bible studies, Gospel and Praise Groups, prison and visitation ministries, and currently mentors several pastors. His books on prayer have been used by missionary groups around the world. He has a BA in Chemistry and a MA in Science Education, both from East Carolina University.
Strongly Evangelical, he calls himself a Christian with a Catholic, Pentecostal, and Baptist background. With over 35 years of Bible study with lay and marketplace ministry, his focus is on what God is saying in the scriptures, and then how do we work with God in everyday life, in every part of life, to His glory.
