In times of poor health, we turn to God with a Prayer for Healing in order to gain the strength to go on, He is not only a physician but also a doctor of the mind and soul. Moreover, it is only through His grace that we can feel better.


The Bible says,

14 Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint [him] with oil in the name of the Lord,

15 and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.

James 5:14-15

Although all things are possible in God, he only asks that we have faith in Him.

From this, we can see that prayer is the surest way we can communicate with God in faith and hope that He will answer our prayers.


A Prayer for Healing and Grace

Dear Lord, we confess our need for you on this day, for your healing and your grace, to restore our hope. Let us remember that you work on behalf of those you love, constantly, powerfully, completely.

Forgive us for trying to fix our situations all by ourselves and for running all different directions and spinning our wheels to find help, when true help and healing must be found in you first.

Forgive us for forgetting how much we need you, above everyone and everything else. We come to you and bring you the places we are hurting. You see where no one else is able to fully see or understand. You know the pain we’ve carried.

The burdens. The cares. You know where we need to be set free. We ask for your healing and grace to cover every broken place. Every wound. Every heartache. Thank you that you are able to do far more than we could ever imagine. Thank you for your Mighty Power that acts on behalf of your children.

We reach out to you and know that you are restoring and redeeming every place of difficulty, every battle, for your greater glory. Thank you that you will never waste our pain and suffering. We love you. We need you today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


Prayer In Times of Sickness

 Oh Jesus Christ, Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, I come to You at this time when I am very sick. Dear Lord, You who is our dearest Comforter when we are troubled, please, reduce our sorrows and worries with Your gentle love.

Grant us Dear sweet Jesus the grace and strength to bear this burden of illness. We place all our worries in Your mighty hands.

We ask that You restore Your servant [mention name] back to good health again, and above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your Holy will. Help us to know that whatever You do, You do for the love of us. Amen.


Personal Healing Prayer

 O Lord my God, You created me, you know me so well and You can count the hairs on my head. You always know the thoughts of my mind and the wishes of my heart before I even say them.

Dear Lord, You always tell us to come to You whenever we are in need of a necessity in life. You are Jehovah-Jireh, the God who provides and heals. You are the Alpha and Omega of my life. You have the final say about whatever happens in my life. You already know for how many years I’ll live to serve you.

Today, Dear Lord, I come to You as your child, begging You for divine healing. There’s so much in life that I don’t understand but what I do know is that with one word and one touch, You can make me whole again.

Please, my saviour, forgive me for all the sins I have committed, cleanse my transgressions and start healing me from the inside out.

Lord, I do not always know Your will, especially like now when I am sick and in desperate need of Your grace. I may not afford to offer You any promises, bargains, or deals in exchange for my health.

The only thing I can do right now is to simply bow my heart before Thee and let You know the desire of my heart, which is that I spend as many years as I can here on earth, loving You and serving, as well as loving others, and wanting to become more like you.


Lord, I have no say in determining how You will accomplish my will. It is all up to you and okay with me. If You use doctors to provide healing, I pray that You give them the wisdom to know what to do. No matter how you accomplish it, the healing You will give me will be miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.

Dear Lord, I absolutely believe that You have the power to heal for You already demonstrated that when You dwelt with us here on earth and You still are a miraculous healer even today.

Lord, thank You for loving me even when my faith is weak, and my hope is dwindling. I already know that You hold my heart and life in your mighty hands.

If I can bring you more glory through healing, then that’s what I ask for. That’s what I desire. But if your answer is no, or not now, I know that your grace is sufficient for me.

Ultimately, I want Your will to be my will and I look forward to living a life of eternity with you.

But Lord, if you have more work still planned for me here on this earth, I will need Your physical healing, together with a thorough, deep-down strengthening and cleansing.

Because all that I am and what I have is yours, kindly use this healing to strengthen me from a “what-if” faith to a “no-matter-what” faith. No matter what happens to me, I choose to honour You and give You praise and glory. In Jesus’s mighty name, I pray and believe. Amen.


Prayer for Soul Healing

 Loving Father, I am very grateful for You have loved me from when I was born until now, in times of joy and sorrows, in times of wholeness, and also in times of brokenness.

Dear Lord, thank You for not being too hard on me when I knowingly or unknowingly do-little blunders and mistakes. You do not belittle me in times of my weakness, but You are always there with me to give me love and strength.

Lord God, give my heart a good rest so that it can become strong again. Do not abandon me You who are Most High. Do a miracle and heal my soul. May I be a living testimony of Your soul healing. Make me whole again so that I can get the favour of coming to Your Kingdom.

Mighty God, help me to live a new life that is of total service to You, and may all that You have done to me be visible to others so that Your Holy name be glorified forever. I pray all these in Jesus’ name. Amen.
