The Story Behind the Song #9: The "Be Healed" Song 

Back in June of 2010 when our twins were about two and a half years old, Tiveria, the eldest, fell from the top of the ladder that leads to the loft, roughly eight feet. Todd and I were around a corner from each other at the time and each thought the other was watching her. We only heard the awful sound of her head smacking the floor. We both rushed to the scene and found her bleeding profusely from a gash in her head. I was so thankful that Todd was home as he responds so much better in these situations than I do. Todd commanded the bleeding to stop and had me apply a cloth to her head as I carried her around the house speaking life and healing to her. This song came to me at that time since it enabled me not only to pray for Tiveria but kept me from becoming a basket case. 

Our default mode is to treat all medical conditions at home unless the Lord clearly leads us to do otherwise. Therefore as I was singing to her Todd requested prayer and resources from friends and neighbors. He located some superglue and butterfly bandages that we used in her treatment. Afterwards, however, he banned me from ever using superglue again as I squeezed half the tube on Tiveria’s head and it was a real trick to get it out of her hair after the ordeal was over. 

Since then we have often sung this song for those in need of healing. One of the things that our family has begun to practice in the last few years is to pray for people while we are out and about. Wherever we happen to be, we ask God to show us who He would have us pray for along the way. We’ve been greatly influenced by Dan Mohler, Todd White and others in this regard (you can find them on Youtube). We are often drawn to people with obvious physical needs and we often use this song to pray for them. This has especially come in handy with our younger children who are the quickest to spot canes and wheelchairs and know the “Be Healed” song well. We don’t limit our prayers to physical needs, but they are often what provide an obvious open door. I’ve found that this habit has made me feel much more satisfaction after our shopping trips. Even if we don’t accomplish all that we’d set out to in the physical, I often feel that the trip was well worth it because of what was accomplished in the spiritual.  Even if we don’t see people miraculously healed every time, we believe God when He says that love never fails and at the very least, we know that we are being changed. 

(Note:  The photo is of Tiveria two days after the fall.  She still has a scar that helps people outside of the family to distinguish her from her sister.)

 

The “Be Healed” Song

 

Be healed in the name of Jesus, 

Be healed, be healed; 

Be healed in the name of Jesus, 

Be healed, be healed; 

Be healed, be healed, 

Be healed, be healed; 

Be healed in the name of Jesus, 

Be healed, be healed
