I often go with a friend of mine from church to lay hands on the sick that request prayer. I like to do this at lunch time because the folks are local and it usually doesn't take much time for Jesus to heal the sick through a believer.
This time an elderly man from church whom I have known for many years asked for prayer because he had discovered a growth on his chest just under his skin and had gone to the doctor who had run some tests on it and told him it was cancerous.
We arrived at his house and after some friendly small talk also discovered he had some other various pains in his body. His hips and knees hurt him as well. So we first laid hands on him and watched as the Lord Jesus removed his discomfort from those symptoms. He was very happy but, quite honestly, not all that surprised as he was a believer in Jesus' power over sickness. I encouraged him, "We addressed these other physical things first because I wanted you to see some visible results to encourage you that when we lay hands on that growth, the same thing will happen to it." He agreed.
So we laid hands on the growth and commanded in Jesus' Name for it to get out of his body and dissolve away to nothing. Nothing happened. We commanded several more times. Nothing. We (and he) could still feel the growth under his skin. So we resolved what to do. Oftentimes if you don't see results I recommend trying this. Command the healing, then put your hands on the person for just about 2 seconds, quickly remove your hands and them have the sick person immediately check for results. Me and my friend did this. We were determined not to leave until the growth left and we told it so!
The first time we did this together, the growth got smaller. So again. Smaller. Again. Smaller. We did this several more times until the elderly man could no longer find the growth.
Jesus is truly amazing. Don't give up. It is what He wants to do. He wants the healing more than the minister and the sick put together.

Later that night when the recital was over, I didn't get a chance to ask her if all was 100%, but I did notice that she helped clean up and didn't seem to be suffering any longer. Yay! Even if it was a partial healing, she was most certainly helped by Jesus that night and I'm sure the suddenness of that help blessed her heart because most people are not prepared for immediate results! Unfortunately we are too often surprised by God helping us immediately, but it was the normal mode for Jesus Himself when He walked the earth.

A simple prayer and a mustard seed-sized faith is all it takes. I put both hands on her wrist and just said, "In Jesus' Name I command this wrist to be restored. Jesus bore all your pain." As usual, I felt nothing, but asked anyway, "Do you feel that heating up or tingling?" Her eyes widened, "Oh my God. I really feel something! How...?" Tears welled up a little. "Try it out." She said, "I can already tell you as soon as you prayed the pain left." But she began to move it. "Wow! That used to tingle. I can't believe this."
She thanked me. She kept the wrap on because she said it still felt weak. But before we left the restaurant she thanked me again and showed me how much mobility she had with it without pain.
Amen. Jesus heals them all... as we go about our normal daily lives... let Him do His loving work. Even if nothing happens right away, you have still been obedient to His call and shown the other person His love.
