Jesus christ healing prayer

Divine healing prayers are based on spiritual metaphysics of divine Mind. Christ Jesus demonstrated and manifested spirit, science and metaphysics of Mind-healing in a full measure. Christ Jesus was obedient to his Father or divine Mind. If we get realization and assure ourselves of having the same Mind as was in Christ Jesus we enable to perform divine healing of mind and body as Christ Jesus did.

Meekness, humility, and purity allowed Jesus to manifest and rely on the healing power of the Mind or God. Through his pure spiritual prayers, which evolved from the spiritual metaphysics, Jesus demonstrated health and harmony right there where diseases and discords appeared to him. The Psalms of David also proved the healing power of the Mind or the true word of God. These Psalms were written as the affirmative spiritual prayers and expressed the way to glorify and praise God and His beautiful and loving nature.

Mary Baker Eddy – Christian Science – Spiritual Metaphysics

Metaphysical Science of Mind healing was discovered and fully demonstrated in 1866 by a remarkable woman, Mary Baker Eddy, who lived in America in the 19th century and part of the 20th century. The divine spiritual metaphysics was manifested in her instant healing of the near fatal effects of a heavy fall on ice. The whole Mary Baker Eddy’s life was a manifestation of moral spiritual metaphysics. The heartfelt love and dedication to God led Mary Baker Eddy to a revelation of Christian Science. She proved her revelation to be the Science of Mind healing.

Mary Baker Eddy elaborates the term Christian Science in her textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. She writes,

The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science, is Love.

Just as the prophets from the Bible’s time performed spiritual healings, Mary Baker Eddy and her students followed the principles of divine Mind healing and were also able to “heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils”, as Christ Jesus had called all his followers to perform those mighty deeds.

The healing power of the metaphysical science is fully described in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Thousands of new readers today have experienced the healing power of the spiritual metaphysics of Mind healing during the last 138 years. Since the first publication of that healing book in 1875 it has been sold over ten million copies. Translated into 16 languages, Science and Health was voted “one of 75 books by women whose words have changed the world” by the National Women’s Book Association.

The facts testify that many thousands of readers of this textbook, who have realized and perceived its healing ideas, have found themselves healed of so-called incurable diseases, overcome bad habits, and restored broken relationships.

Mary Baker Eddy affirms with authority in her textbook Science and Health:

Having faith in the divine Principle of health and spiritually understanding God, sustains man under all circumstances;

The discoverer of the divine Mind healing explains that the revelation of Christian Science demands obedience to principles of spiritual metaphysics by every seeker of Truth, of harmony and health.

Whoever would demonstrate the healing of Christian Science must abide strictly by its rules, heed every statement, and advance from the rudiments laid down. There is nothing difficult nor toilsome in this task, when the way is pointed out, but self-denial, sincerity, Christianity, and persistence alone win the prize, as they usually do in every department of life.

Abba Father, I come to You in the wonderful and majestic name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I thank You for the new mercies that I see each and every day. Thanks for the honor and privilege You have given me to come before Your glorious throne of grace, where I can obtain mercy.

I give You all the praise that is due to Your name, Oh Lord. Thank You for the many blessings You continue to bestow upon me. You are the great I AM, the ALPHA and the OMEGA. You are the BEGINNING and the END!

Father God, as I continue to give You all the glory, I declare that I will bless Your name at all times. Your praise will continually be in my mouth. You are my refuge and my strength, in You I have my being.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Exodus 15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.

My Declarations of Healing

JEHOVAH RAPHA, my HEALER, I glorify the matchless name of Jesus Christ. I declare that every stronghold over my life is broken.

Every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God is torn down and cast into the sea.

Every mountain, Lord, is removed through the working power of the GODHEAD (the Trinity) – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Command all illnesses to leave

I command all sickness, all diseases, all pain to leave my body right now, in the name of Jesus Christ!

  • I declare healing. Heavenly Father, You are my HEALER and at the sound of Your name, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord over all the earth.
  • I decree and declare that I hunger and thirst for Your healing touch Lord and that rivers of living water will flow through my veins, my arteries and my blood.
  • By the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST I am healed! I am delivered! Thank you Lord, I am set free! I AM ETERNALLY RELEASED!

Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

Isaiah 53:5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.

Father, Your Word declares that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

I believe that as I continue to trust and have faith in the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I will see the manifestation of Your healing power.

Since the body cannot go where the mind has not gone, I will look to the future and see my victory.

All these mercies I ask in Your name, I claim it and I receive it! SO BE IT! AMEN and AMEN!

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

jesus christ healing prayer

The Jesus Prayer Meditation is a wonderful spiritual tool to deepen your inner communion with Jesus Christ, and with the Infinite. This meditation is a variation of the Hong-Sau technique.  Swami Kriyananda taught this Jesus Prayer Meditation to a Catholic priest.

The “Jesus Prayer” Meditation

by Mary Kretzmann, Ananda Healing Prayer Ministry

Years ago, I was reading a small and humble magazine dedicated to Therese of Liseux, “the Little Flower.” It recorded experiences of answered prayers, especially after people had prayed a novena in her name. Therese had promised to send “Roses from Heaven” to signify when prayers had been heard. Some of the stories were remarkable. All were touching.

One story, however, made an impression, and it was different from all of the others. It was written by a widow who had been very lonely, until her priest taught her the Jesus Prayer Meditation. After making this a part of her daily life, she said that while she was still alone; she was no longer lonely, for she inwardly felt His presence with her always.

When I turned the page to read about the techniques, I expected to see something akin to what I had learned from the book, “The Way of a Pilgrim,” the 19th century Russian spiritual classic, which describes the author’s inner transformational journey using this Jesus Prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, the poor sinner.”

But to my surprise, what I found was a meditation technique that I knew from the tradition of Paramhansa Yogananda, called Hong Sau. Everything was the same, such as sitting still, and watching the breath, except instead of “hong sau,” one said the Jesus Prayer.  I was thrilled, thinking, “Oh my goodness! This must have been passed down intact from the time of Jesus, and then through the Desert Fathers, then up to this time!”

I was young and very enthusiastic. I happened to see Swami Kriyananda a short time later and told him about my discovery.  He was just as thrilled, but in a different way. He exclaimed, “I taught that to a Catholic priest years ago! He must be out there teaching it.”

The kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:20-21)

The Jesus Prayer as written in her article was, “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.”

Please note that it does not include the traditional ending, “a poor sinner.” Paramhansa Yogananda taught that, “It is a sin to all yourself ‘a sinner.’” 

Our God nature is our true state; our errors and ignorance along the way are temporary. Our past errors do not define who we truly are, for as Jesus said, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, Ye are gods?’”

“…And Christians who imagine themselves inherently sinful, rather than sinning under the influence of delusion, would do well to meditate on the parable of the prodigal son, whose true home was in God. And, if those Christians aspire to heaven, they might ponder these words of Jesus, ‘No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven.’ (John 3:13)”  The New Path, by Swami Kriyananda.

It is also good to clarify the word, “mercy.” Think of it as asking for the loving mitigation of our karma, or spiritual debts; some created long ago, but still getting in the way of our spiritual understanding, and unfolding. So even though we are not to define ourselves as “sinners,” we have indeed created errors over the course of this lifetime, and many lifetimes.  So, we are asking for help in dissolving our old karma, much in the same spirit as in the Lord’s Prayer, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” Matthew 6:12

Practicing the Presence

A beautiful benefit about doing the Jesus Prayer Meditation is that once you complete your formal practice of the technique (instructions are at the end of this article) you will find that it is now much easier to “practice the presence of God” using this prayer throughout the day.  The phrase, Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, is now in your thoughts, and you can encourage it along, like the turning of a prayer wheel.   In your normal day, while “practicing the presence,” you need not link the prayer to the breath; that is better for your meditation time. But do try to let each prayer be sincere; you don’t want merely to “parrot” the prayer as that serves little purpose. Feel that your spiritual heart is talking to Jesus as you say the prayer. Try to feel His Light, or a warm Presence in your heart center. This sense of His Presence will grow over time, with practice.

It is also very powerful to feel that you are sending this prayerful attention to Him from the point between the eyebrows, which is called the Christ center, or spiritual eye.  As a little girl, I would see the spiritual eye every night after my Dad said bedtime prayers with me. I would quietly lay in bed, feeling my love for Jesus, and Mary, his Mother, and see a “donut” of blue light – surrounded by a ring of golden light. I did not know what it was, but I saw it every night of my childhood, after saying prayers, until finally drifting off to sleep.

Jesus Christ said, The light of the body is the eye: If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  Matthew 6:22

This point of energy is in you, even if you do not yet see that light. It is a point of inspiration in your body. Lift your prayers to that point. You can also pray: “Reveal Thyself, Reveal Thyself, Reveal Thyself…” from that point, and after a little while, relax to feel His answer in your heart.

The Complete Guide to the Spiritual Eye

Reverence for the Holy Name

There is a timeless and powerful principle in the reverence for the holy name. This is referenced, of course, in The Third Commandment: Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. When we use the power of the Holy Name trivially, or “in vain,” and for no purpose, we cheapen that potential spiritual power within us. 

The Desert Fathers in the 4th century used segments of the psalms repetitively in order to focus the mind spiritually. The first written record of the Jesus Prayer is in the 5th century in Greece.  In the western tradition, there is a practice of repeating the name of Jesus, in order to practice the presence of God. A quick Internet search brought up this devotional gem from the Catholic Catechism on praying unceasingly:


“The invocation of the holy name of Jesus is the simplest way of praying always. When the holy name is repeated often by a humbly attentive heart, the prayer is not lost by heaping up empty phrases, but holds fast to the word and “brings forth fruit with patience.” This prayer is possible “at all times” because it is not one occupation among others but the only occupation: that of loving God, which animates and transfigures every action in Christ Jesus.”

Love is the source of prayer; whoever draws from it reaches the summit of prayer. In the words of the Cure D’Ars:  l love you, O my God, and my only desire is to love you until the last breath of my life. I love you, O my infinitely lovable God, and I would rather die loving you, than live without loving you. I love you, Lord, and the only grace I ask is to love you eternally…. My God, if my tongue cannot say in every moment that I love you, I want my heart to repeat it to you as often as I draw breath.

Paramhansa Yogananda used to like to remind people that the Cure D’Ars also said, “If you only knew how much God loved you, you would die for joy!”

Paramhansa Yogananda saw Jesus Christ in vision many times, and he said this painting by Heinrich Hoffman looked the most like the real-life Jesus.

Spiritual Power of Man’s Word

“…Man’s word is Spirit in man. Words are sounds occasioned by the vibrations of thoughts. Thoughts are vibrations sent forth by the Ego or Soul. Every word that leaves your mouth ought to be potent with your genuine soul vibration. Words in most people are lifeless because they are automatically put forth into the ether, without being impregnated with soul force. Too much talking, exaggeration or falsehood used in connection with words is just like shooting bullets out of a toy gun, without the gun-powder. That is why the prayers or words of such people do not produce any desired definite change in the order of things. Every word you utter you must mean it, i.e., every word you put forth must represent not only Truth, but some of your realized soul force. Words without soul force are husks without the corn…” (From Scientific Healing Affirmations, 1924 Edition: By Paramhansa Yogananda)

This tradition of reverential, devotional use of “the Holy Name” also exists for the name of the great Indian Master, Babaji: “Whenever anyone utters with reverence the name of Babaji,” Lahiri Mahasaya said, “that devotee attracts an instant spiritual blessing.” Autobiography of Yogi, by Paramhansa Yogananda. 

“The kingdom of Heaven is within you.”

Jesus Prayer Meditation: Preparation

Adaptations by Mary Kretzmann: from “Watching the Breath Meditation” from the book, How to Meditate by John Novak

One of the best ways to relax the body is to tense it first. Then, with relaxation, you will find tensions being released that you didn’t even know existed. Begin your meditation experience by practicing the following two relaxation techniques. The first exercise relaxes your body, and the second calms your mind.

  1. Inhale, tense the whole body, then throw the breath out and relax. Do this exercise three times to help rid your body of unconscious tensions.

The breath reflects one’s mental state. As the breath becomes calmer, so does the mind, and vice versa. Relax your mind before meditation, by doing this simple breathing exercise:

  1. Inhale slowly counting one to eight, hold your breath for the same number of counts, then exhale for the same count. This is one round of “even count breathing.”

You may either lengthen or shorten the number of counts according to what is comfortable, but keep the inhalation, retention, and exhalation equal. Practice the “even count breathing” six times (six rotations).

For the Jesus Prayer Meditation, you can do the “even count breathing” with the numbers above, or using the Jesus Prayer:

Inhale: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.” (9 syllables= 9 counts)

Hold: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.”

Exhale: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.”

For longer counts, try this:

Inhale: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me, Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.” (18 syllables= 18 counts)

Hold: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me, Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.”

Exhale: “Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me, Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.”

Meditation: As the breath becomes calmer and more refined during meditation, there is a joyous feeling of peace and exaltation. Practice the following meditation technique to help calm your breath, your mind, and your whole being.

Complete Instructions for Jesus Prayer Meditation

Adapted, by Mary Kretzmann, from the book, How to Meditate, by John Novak

Although simple to practice, this is one of the central and most important techniques of meditation. Watching the breath is extremely powerful because it works scientifically to calm our breath, mind, and life force. By concentrating intently on the breath and becoming a simple observer of the breathing process, you quickly calm the breath, redirect the flow of energy to the spiritual eye (or Christ center), and concentrate the mind.

  1. The technique of watching the breath should be done immediately following the preparatory techniques, (tensing and relaxing and even count breathing), when you are already relaxed and focused.

Begin by exhaling completely. As the next breath flows in, mentally watch it as if you were observing the flow of a tide. Be very aware of the breath, but make no attempt to control it in any way. Simply observe its natural flow. Try to feel the breath as it passes in and out of the nostrils. If you are unable to feel the breath in the nostrils, focus for a short time on the breathing process itself, the movement of the chest and lungs, and then transfer your awareness back to the breath in the nostrils.

  1. To help deepen your concentration, mentally repeat a simple word formula such as “Amen” in tandem with the breath. As you inhale silently say “A,” and as you exhale silently repeat “men.” Or you could say “I am” while inhaling and “He” while exhaling. Or, say “Jesus” for the incoming breath, and “Christ” for the outgoing.  Or even more simply, “Je-sus.”

And, one can also do it like this:

Inhalation: “Lord Jesus Christ”

Exhalation: “Have mercy on me”

All of these help contribute to training the mind to “pray unceasingly.”

In India they silently repeat “hong” with the incoming breath and “sau” with the exhalation. This is a special “mantra” or word formula that is especially effective in calming the flow of energy in the spine

It is also helpful to move the index finger of the right hand slightly toward the palm on the inhalation and slightly away on the exhalation.

If the mind wanders, immediately bring it back to concentrating on the technique.

  1. As the breath becomes calmer, gradually become aware of it as it passes higher and higher in the nostrils until you are feeling it high up in the nasal cavity. Now you can transfer your point of concentration from the breath to the point between the eyebrows. Continue to mentally observe the breath, and to silently chant your word formula, still making no effort to control either the rhythm or depth of your breathing.
  1. The key to success with this technique is to deepen your concentration at the spiritual eye until you no longer think of anything except the rhythmic flow of the breath. As the mind becomes very focused and calm you will find your need for breath diminishing. Enjoy the spaces between breaths, keeping your mind very still and allowing the pauses to lengthen naturally.

A cycle of increasing interiorization is set into motion through this technique. As the breath (and the flow of life-force) begins to calm down, the mind is naturally able to concentrate more deeply. Deeper concentration brings about an even greater calming of the breath, allowing yet deeper focusing of the mind, and so on. The final stage of this cycle is the complete withdrawal of life current from the body and senses and the total concentration of the mind. “I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.” 1 Corinthians 15:31

As the energy becomes completely focused at the spiritual eye, the body’s need for oxygen ceases and the breath stops. At first this may be a somewhat odd, and even frightening experience, but it is the doorway to the deepest states of meditation.

  1. End your practice of this technique by taking a deep breath and exhaling three times. Then concentrate very deeply at the spiritual eye, trying to hold your mind completely still. With the mind deeply concentrated and interiorized, you can go on to the other parts of your meditation, such as concentrating on the light of the spiritual eye, listening to the inner sounds, or feeling the deep love, peace, and joy brought by meditation.

The Complete Guide to the Spiritual Eye

How long should you practice this meditation? Be guided by your own feeling of enjoyment and your ability to maintain your concentration. Be sure to allow time for silent communion and devotion after your practice of the Jesus Prayer Meditation technique. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10)

Revelations of Christ

Proclaimed by Paramhansa Yogananda
Presented by His Disciple, Swami Kriyananda

“…My fervent prayer is that this book, and its proclamation of Paramhansa Yogananda’s renewed revelation of Christ’s revelation, will initiate a renewal of dynamic, original faith in Jesus Christ…”

“Jesus Christ was sent to earth to proclaim the Heavenly Father’s love for us all, and to awaken love in our hearts for Him. Science has shown us a universe, however, too vast to have been created by any man-like Father figure. Science’s view, however, is also limited. Whatever, or Whoever, brought everything into existence created also human beings with human feelings, and with individual appreciation for parental love, filial love, romantic and friendly love. If that Infinite One is omniscient, then He certainly knows our innermost feelings, no matter how often science with its dry, factual outlook on reality scoffs at the idea of a Being infinitely superior to the scientists themselves, far beyond their intellectual games, lambent with tenderest feelings of love for us all, unceasingly forgiving, and awaiting only our love in return to bring us back to Himself.”

TESTIMONIAL:  This book is a great gift to humanity. It is a spiritual treasure to cherish deep in the heart, and to pass on to children for generations. This remarkable and magnificent book brings us to the doorway of a deeper, richer embracing of Eternal Truth. At once crystal clear and wonderfully insightful, we are invited to move through that doorway into a place of gloriously larger views of Jesus and God and of Life Itself than many of us have ever been blessed to behold.”     –Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God.

The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas à Kempis is a renowned spiritual classic, recommended by Paramhansa Yogananda. I pass along this gem from Conversations with Yogananda, as related by Swami Kriyananda: ~ 83 ~

“…Master had given me and others for Christmas a copy of The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis. When I thanked him, he said, “That is a wonderful book. It is no mere imitation of Christ: It is Christ. I don’t often encourage people to read other books, but this one I recommend unreservedly.”

“Thomas à Kempis,” I remarked, “must have been a great saint. Is that so?”

“A very great saint,” he replied.

Prayers to Jesus Christ – “God the Son”

“Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened, I will give you rest”  Matthew 11: 28

Christ died so that you might live

“Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” John 16:33

Imagine a God So Almighty, So Powerful… that he is in fact – Incomprehensible. It is simply not possible to imagine what God really is. It is said, “We would die instantly if we looked upon his face”.

But imagine this Almighty, All Powerful God totally in love with you… his creation. How does he tell you what he wants you to do… how does he directly communicate with you… so you will comprehend and understand him?  Quite simply… he becomes a Man… and tells us “we what we need to know” in order to be blessed and one day have eternal life. No more.. No Less. What we need to know only.

He did this thru the incarnation of himself thru Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God… in a comprehensible way for us to understand. When you pray to Christ… You are recognizing the Glory and the Power that Christ shares with God… because he one with God. They are one and the same. But Christ is the part of God we can understand.

So pray to Christ… ask him to receive your prayers… give him glory… give him honor…. give him thanks… and he will bless you and your future generations. Make him #1 in your life. For as he said, “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.

Do Not Worry

Sacred Heart of Christ

I give myself and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, my person and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being other than to honor, love and glorify the Sacred Heart. This is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all His, and to do all things for the love of Him, at the same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to Him. I therefore take You, O Sacred heart, to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the faults of my life and my sure refuge at the hour of death.
Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God the Father, and turn away from me the strokes of his righteous anger.
O Heart of love, I put all my confidence in You, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from Your goodness and bounty.
Remove from me all that can displease You or resist Your holy will; let your pure love imprint Your image so deeply upon my heart, that I shall never be able to forget You or to be separated from You.
May I obtain from all Your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in Your Heart, for in You I desire to place all my happiness and glory, living and dying in bondage to You.


Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be… World without End
