Did He hear my prayer?

Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord and THE PRAYER OF FAITH shall heal the sick and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins they shall be forgiven him. James 5:14-15.
Now did you notice the holy scriptures said 'the prayer of faith' which means there can be a prayer not of faith!
What then is a prayer of faith? It is praying what God had already done in the spirit into physical manifestation.
For example when you pray for the sick and you pray in faith, you are simply saying I believe what 1Peter2:24 says that 'Who is own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree that we being dead to sins should live unto righteousness and by whose stripes ye were healed. Allelluia!
This verse of the scriptures tells us we have been healed already because of what Christ did on the cross. He had paid the price for our sicknesses and diseases. He is not going to pay another price so when you understand this revelation,  then if you are sick in your body or you are praying for someone who is sick in their body, you pray and thank God for the healing Christ had already purchased for you or them, you place your faith in what he had done and receive your healing by faith and if you truly believe that by his stripes you were healed then there will be a corresponding action.
When Jesus healed in the bible, the people got up immediately,  Peter's mother in law got up and ministered to them after Jesus healed her fever in Matt 8:14-15. In Mark 2, the man sick of the palsy who was let down through the roof by his friends got up immediately after Jesus healed him.
The lame man in Acts 3 at the beautiful gate healed by Peter and John got up and leapt immediately he was healed.
None of them said 'oh but I can't walk, they acted out what they believed, that's faith in action.
Quite a number of people just pray without really having faith in God, it will not produce the result you desire. God's word are governed by laws.
Heb 11:6 says without faith it is impossible to please God for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
Many come to God in prayer and believe He is God but struggle in the area of whether he will answer them, bible says he rewards you when you seek him!
God doesn't pick when he answers your prayers, he is a constant God, it's impossible for him to change, he is bound by his words.
Come to him in faith, believe he heard you and let your actions show you truly believed.
