Sometimes, we feel hopeless and like things can never improve in times of hardship. Untangling yourself from these spiraling thoughts can be confusing and difficult. You are not alone, and there are steps you can take to heal and find strength once again. A healing prayer can be read or said aloud during this process. Prayer can provide comfort during the healing process, no matter what obstacle you are facing.
It is necessary to have hope and faith in the Lord to be able to overcome sickness and receive healing from Him. A list of good healing prayers can be found here.
Prayer to Rescue the Oppressed
My father, you are the self-existent and eternal Jehovah, who intercedes on our behalf for our brother who is living with this disability. Those who have been kidnapped by the mighty tyrant shall be rescued, and the prey of the terrible oppressor shall be delivered from the evil hand of the mighty tyrant. We speak Your promise over our brother. Thanks be to God, we are thankful to You that You wrestle with him who contends with us, and we are thankful that You will set free our brother. May the God of our salvation be praised! Amen.
Prayer for Perfect Health
God, our Mighty Warrior, establish this child of Yours in perfect health and well-being. You have promised that Your servant will be free of the oppression of sickness, and from the terror that comes from disease. I pray that through the power of Jesus, this illness that is fiercely afflicting her will be driven away for the sake of You. It is Your promise that no weapon formed against her will succeed, and that this is the heritage of those who serve the Lord, and this is what we speak out today. Amen.
Affliction Trampled by Prayer
Our Healer, Jehovah Rapha, help us to overcome this adversary of illness, for we know that medical deliverances are vain and that the care is not in our best interest. I know that only You, O Mighty God, can make us an army of strength, and only through You will we be able to do what we are supposed to do. Our affliction will be trampled under our feet by You, who are the One who will take away our suffering. Our glory goes to You, for you are able to do far more abundantly than what we could ever ask or imagine, based on the power that is at work in us and according to what you are doing through us. Amen.
An Overcomer’s Prayer
As the Provider, Jehovah Jireh, we thank You that the atonement that You made on behalf of our sister has been able to heal her. The reason we know that she is more than an overcomer is because she belongs to You, and it is You who are working more powerfully in her than anyone else in the world is. I pray that she may find peace in You. Because you have overcome this sickness, I hope she will have courage, even in the midst of the tribulations of her illness. I pray that her faith in God will be the victory that conquers this worldly trial and keeps her from losing hope. Amen.
A Prayer to Bind Sickness
Our Lord, we thank You that You have given us the strength to face down the attacks of the adversary through the Fountain of Life. Our lips are filled with praises to God, and our swords are taken up in the name of the Spirit and pronounced over this disease, and we speak out the word of the Lord over it. We put fetters on all symptoms of this illness, bind it with chains, and bind it with iron chains. In the mighty Name of Jesus, I declare that this illness will no longer afflict this servant of God, in the days to come. Amen.
I call upon you, Divine Defender, to arise, and scatter the work of our enemy in our brother’s life. You can drive these cancer cells away as you drive smoke away, just as you do with smoke. I pray that these tumors melt as wax melts in front of the fire, and that these tumors disappear. Lord, may you lead our dear brother out of this prison of sickness and into the prosperity of health so he can enjoy life to the fullest. We pray for the Holy Spirit to pour out upon him, bringing him refreshment and healing, as a rain of the Holy Spirit. As a God of deliverance, You are at the heart of our lives. Amen.
God is a miracle-working God! I pray that Your Holy Spirit, the same one who raised Jesus from the dead, will give life to our brother’s mortal body. Our hearts are thankful to You for the fact that when You are for us, nothing can be against us. We are overwhelmingly conquerors in all things because of the love that Jesus has for us. We declare that this sickness has been overwhelmingly conquered, once and for all, under the mighty Name of Jesus, that Name under which all the things in heaven and on earth and below the earth must bow, in the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.
Most Powerful Prayer for Healing by St Padre Pio
Heavenly Father, thank you so much for loving me and for taking care of me.
Please accept my sincere thanks for sending your Son,
Having come to the world to save and to set me free, our Lord Jesus Christ came into the world.
My trust is in the power and grace of God that sustains and restores me every day.
Touch me now with your healing hands and I will be healed,
For I believe that you want me to be well in all of my capacities, including my mind, body, heart, and soul.
Let your Son’s blood cover me in the most precious way, let him cover me in the most precious way.
All of my heart is devoted to our Lord, Jesus Christ, from my head to the soles of my feet.
Anything that does not belong in me should be cast out.
Remove any cells that are unhealthy or abnormal from your body.
Rebuild any damaged areas, open any blocked arteries or veins, and rebuild or replenish any parts of the body that are damaged.
Every inflammation and any infection is cleansed by the power of Jesus’ precious blood.
Throughout my entire body, let the fire of your healing love pass through me and through my entire being to return any diseased areas of my body to health and give them a new life by which they can function in the way that you intended for them to function.
Touch my mind, my emotions, and my deepest recesses.
Fill me with your presence,
Bring me ever closer to you through love, joy and peace.
Fill me with the Holy Spirit, Father
Empower me to do your will
For your holy name to be glorified through my life.
In the name of Jesus Christ.
According to Mark 11:23, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes it will happen, will have whatever he says.” It is important to note from this verse that we must clearly define his needs. Confidently speak this word. It can be difficult to know where to turn when you are facing a difficult illness or disease. The problem is that most of us don’t know what to pray to God. These prayers for healing can help you to unleash God’s healing power in your life if you feel alone or afraid about the future:
