In none of these cases of miraculous healing found in the New Testament is there any mention of a “prayer of agreement.” However, we still see cases of the laying on of hands and, in particular, the exercise of authority through the granting of an order. Isaiah 28:18 Then your covenant will be lifted by death, and your consent with Shesol will not subsist; When the overwhelming scourge passes, it knocks you out. In the synagogue, there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He shouted in a full voice, “Get out! What do you want from us, Jesus of Nazareth? Did you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God! “Shut up! Jesus said sternly. “Get out of him!” Then the demon threw the man in front of them and came out without harming him. Everyone marveled and thought, “What are those words! With authority and power, he gives orders to unclean spirits and they come out of it.” And the message about him spread to the surrounding area.
