Prayer for Healing
a red rose
ruth5221
Heavenly FATHER, I thank you for loving me. I thank You for sending YOUR SON, our LORD JESUS CHRIST to the world to save and set us free. I trust in YOUR power and grace that sustain and restore me. Loving FATHER, you have instructed us in your word that we are to pray to you that we may be healed. In confidence and faith, I ask you to touch me now with your healing hands, for I believe that your will is for me to be well in mind, body, and spirit. Cover me with the most precious blood of your son Jesus Christ from the top of my head to soles of my feet. Cast out everything that should not be in my body. Root out any abnormal cells and multiply my healthy cells. Let the fire of your healing love pass through my entire body to heal and to make new any diseased areas and to replenish my damaged areas. Touch also my mind and emotions, even the deepest recesses of my heart. Saturate my entire being with your presence, joy, and peace and draw me closer to you every moment of my life.

Oh God you sent your word that we may be healed and the word became flesh. And dwelt among us. Jesus thank you for dying on the cross that we may be healed. I lay claim to that heritage of healing which you have promised in your word to those who believe. I believe Lord, and I look to you for a life of health, healing and wholeness for my body. "For you were bruised for my iniquities, you were wounded for my transgressions, the chastisement for my peace was upon you, and by your stripes, I am healed!" (Isaiah 53.5)

"And why not?"
a red rose
ruth5221
Last April 5 I've undergone an MRM. After all the biopsy results came in, I felt my world exploded. I couldn't believe nor accept. "Why?" or "Why me?" After all that was written about cancer, before my ordeal, I thought it was just a myth. Now it's a living nightmare. Day after day, after my operation I sank into desperation, depression, whatever ill feeling there is in existence, I think I felt it, even doubt about how good God is. My illness turned my whole life upside down. In my mind I thought the whole world would also stand still or stop somehow. I was wrong. The simple fact is - life goes on and on and on. One and a half month after my operation, after some soul-searching, God still wins. Yes because no matter who we are or what we do in life, that time will come, ready or not, when God says "it's time" it is time.

Flashbacks of Yolanda.. that dreadful typhoon which claimed lives of men, women, even children were not spared. Then I remembered children with cancer going through chemo therapies and other illnesses. Now when my thoughts would wander and somehow ask again "Why?" or "Why me?" an answer would bounce back "And why not?" This world that we're in is like grinding coffee to perfection, or like a blacksmith making a fine sword. Every person is dealing with a problem one way or another. God is busy working in our lives. He is definitely working on me. I know one day God will say "My work is finished." And I'd say "dear God thank you..."

Bible Verses for Healing
a red rose
ruth5221
Mark 16:17-18 "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." NOTE - Find someone who believes God's Word regarding healing and have them lay hands on you and pray for you in faith, based upon the promises of God. James 5:16 says "that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."

Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint." NOTE - The word "wait" in this verse implies a positive action of hope, based on knowing that the Word of God is a true fact and that it will soon come to pass - waiting with earnest expectation!

Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all."

Jeremiah 30:17 "For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord."

Isaiah 53:4-5 "Surely He hath borne our griefs (Hebrew: sicknesses) and carried our sorrows (Hebrew: pains) yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed." NOTE - The last part of this verse,"by His stripes we are healed," is not talking about spiritual healing, as some have taught, but definite physical healing. God does not "heal" a human spirit, he recreates it. He does however, heal our bodies and minds. This clearly shows that your healing was paid for at the cross!

Jeremiah 33:6 "Behold, I will bring you health and cure, and I will cure you, and will reveal unto you the abundance of peace and truth."

Matthew 18:19 "Again I say to you that if two of you agree on Earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven." NOTE - The prayer of agreement is powerful - have someone agree with you for your healing!

Mark 11:24 "Therefore I say to you whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." Surely this includes healing!

Isaiah 58:8 "Thy light shall break forth as the morning, and thy health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee: the glory of the Lord shall be thy rear guard."

Proverbs 16:24 "Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones." NOTE - The Word of God is the most pleasant of words, therefore we can expect sweetness to our soul (mind, intellect and emotions) as well as health to our bones!


Psalm 41:3 (Amplified Version) "The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen him on his bed of languishing; all his bed You [O Lord] will turn, change, and transform in his illness." NOTE - I love how the Amplified Bible brings out the fullness of meaning in the original language. The phrase "all his bed" in the Hebrew, has the meaning of; all that he is afflicted with, or all of his condition that he is lying with" It is always His will to turn, change and transform our mourning into dancing - Psalm 30:11

1 Peter 2:24 "Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness-- by whose stripes you were healed." NOTE - Past tense "You were healed". Jesus paid it all for your total deliverance - spirit, soul and body!

Psalm 103:2-3 "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who heals all thy diseases" NOTE - Notice it doesn't say some, it says all! It also states that healing is one of the benefits that belongs to the believer along with the benefit of having our sin forgiven. See our article Two Gifts of Grace

3 John 2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."

Jeremiah 17:14 "Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise." NOTE - Once a person finally understands that healing is a part of the finished work of grace along with salvation, paid for at the same time with the same healing Blood, then you can get excited about this verse saying; "You did it Lord for me! Then according to this verse I will agree and say, I will have healing just as I have salvation, it's mine NOW!"

James 5:14-15 "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 save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."Ex 23:25-26

Use Your Authority and Resist Fear!

Matthew 18:18 "Verily I say unto you, whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." NOTE - The word "bind" means to forbid, the word "loose" means to let go or to allow to go free. Do not allow sickness, pain or disease run free in your body, bind it or forbid it to stay there any longer because of your rights as a believer.. Put your foot down and command it to leave in the Name of Jesus!!!

John 10:10 "The thief (satan) does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." NOTE - Here we see the desired will of the Lord for every believer - that we experience abundant life. According to this verse He came for this very purpose. We also see clearly that it is not God who afflicts us. The word here for life is the Greek word "zoe." One highly respected commentator describes the true meaning of the word life in this verse as: "life being the highest and best of which Christ is." In light of that meaning, you can easily see the wonderful gift of life the Lord wants for each of us. Sickness and disease are truly not in His plan for us, simply because He has none to give.

Luke 10:19 "Behold, I give unto you power (authority) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." NOTE - This is an exciting verse as Jesus said He has given us authoritative power over ALL, not some of the enemy! Command Satan to take his hands off of you. Command sickness and disease to leave you now in the Name of Jesus.

Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Know That When You Ask The Lord For Healing, It Is Already His Will And He Hears You And He Agrees. Know He Has Already Settled It In The Atonement Of The Blood Of Jesus Christ - He Says "Yes"!

Psalm 30:2 "O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me."

Psalm 107:19-20 "Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions."

Matthew 7:7-8 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." NOTE - The word "ask" in the Greek has the meaning of insistent asking with a knowing of what belongs to the one making the request. Presenting a solid requisition to God, knowing He longs to distribute what He has to the one in need. Look at James 1:5-8 - we must ask in faith, and faith always knows, it never wishes!

Your Words Are Important!

Isaiah 57:19 "I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him." NOTE - The word "fruit" here means produce. God creates what you produce from your mouth when we believe and speak out the Word of God.

Mark 11:22-23 "And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." NOTE - What kind of mountains or obstacles do you have in your life right now? Obey Jesus and command that mountain of pain, cancer, disease etc., to go now out of your body in the Name of Jesus. Jesus said you can have what you say. Begin to call your body whole, healed, well - don't stop, don't listen to your body, don't listen to doubt and fear, listen only to Jesus, listen to His Word!

Job 22:26-28 "For then you will delight in the Almighty, and lift up your face to God. You will pray to Him, and He will hear you; and you will pay your vows. You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways. NOTE - Give voice to the promises in the Word, and lay claim to them as your inheritance. Decree that you are healed! "Lord, you said that by your stripes I am healed, so on the authority of Your Word, I decree that I am healed and that sickness and disease have no legal right or hold on me and they must go in the Name of Jesus!"

Remember To Give Testimony Of Your Healing!

Revelation 12:11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony..." NOTE - When your healing manifests itself and you recover and have the opportunity to testify to the grace of the Lord - Do it!!! The Lord wants you to give glory to Him for what He has done and it will also serve to help build faith in someone else who has a need.

Hold On To Your Healing

Nahum 1:7,9b "The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.... He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time." NOTE - After you've received the manifestation of healing, this becomes your stand of faith!

I am Yours

Psalm 71:5 For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth. (NIV)

Ecclesiastes 3:1-3 (NLT)

A Time for Everything

For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal....

To God be the glory!

Dear Lord of Mercy and Father of Comfort,

You are the One we turn to for help in moments of weakness and times of need. We ask you to be with us in this times of trials. Psalm 107:20 says that you send out your Word and heal. In the name of Jesus, drive out all infirmity and sickness from our family.

Dear Lord, I ask you to turn this weakness into strength, suffering into compassion, sorrow into joy, and pain into comfort. May we trust in your goodness and hope in your faithfulness, even in the middle of this suffering. Let us be filled with patience and joy in your presence as we wait for your healing touch.

Please restore us to full health, dear Father. Remove all fear and doubt from our hearts by the power of your Holy Spirit, and may you, Lord, be glorified through our lives. Amen.

Number of casualties in the super typhoon keep rising. Stories have been coming up... all heartbreaking. Never fail to make me cry... Stories of whole families being all wiped out in the flood. An island with people left with 0 pop after the flood. A lot of times I stop what I'm doing and just thinking why did this all happen. I can't help thinking like if God was in some kind of vacation or probably busy in some planet in another universe... I'm just human and as frail as anyone. Dear God forgive me and forgive us for every wrongdoing.. help me and help us to realize that apart from you we are nothing.
