Here are Four Prayers for Healing you can use today to speak life and hope into your situation.
A Prayer for Personal Healing
God, you know me so well. You created me. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize them. You’ve told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the number of years I’ll live and serve you on earth.
I’m coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There’s so much I don’t understand about life. But I do know that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my sins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.
I don’t always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when I desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for my health. I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire of my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you—and okay with me. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.
I absolutely believe you have the power to heal. You demonstrated that on earth, and you still heal in miraculous ways today. Even when my faith is weak, you say it is enough, and my love for you is strong. And I know you already hold my heart and life in your hands. It’s up to you. 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. I look forward to spending an eternity with you. But Lord, if you have planned still more for me to do here on this earth, I not only need and want your physical healing, Lord, but a thorough, deep-down cleansing and strengthening—a whole-hearted renewal of all that I am. Because all that I am is yours. Use this trial to strengthen me from a “what-if” faith to a “no-matter-what” faith. And no matter what, I choose to honor you and give you glory.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.

How to Pray for Healing – Max Lucado
A Short Prayer for Healing for Friends
Lord, your Word speaks promises of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over my friend. I believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the life of my friend. Please reach down and surround my friend with supernatural peace and strength and give her the faith to believe that all things are possible for you. Protect her from Satan’s lies and discouragement and let her miraculous healing begin. Amen.
A Prayer for Healing and Grace
We confess our need for you today. We need your healing and your grace. We need hope restored. We need to be reminded that you work on behalf of those you love, constantly, powerfully, completely. Forgive us for trying to fix our situations all on our own. Forgive us for running all different directions and spinning our wheels to find help, when true help and healing must be found first in You. 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

A Prayer for Healing Sick Family and Friends
Lord Jesus, thank you that you love . I know that you hate what their illness is doing to them/me. I ask that you would heal this disease, that you would have compassion and bring healing from all sickness.
Your word says in Psalm 107:19-20 that when we call out to you the Eternal one you will give the order, heal and rescue us from certain death. In the Bible, I have read of miraculous healing and I believe that you still heal the same way today. I believe that there is no illness you cannot heal after all the bible tells of you raising people from the dead so I ask for your healing in this situation.
I also know from my experience of life on earth that not everyone is healed. If that happens here than keep my heart soft towards you, help me to understand your plan and help me to be excited about heaven.
God, I thank you that belongs to you and that you are in control of everything that happens from our first breath to our last sigh.
~ Wendy van Eyck

Miracles are one of the most symbolic aspects of being a Christian. As a matter of fact, our Savior Jesus Christ dedicated the bulk of his time to performing numerous miracles in His time on earth. Though, He is not the only one, as we have prophets like Elijah whose faith in the Lord could command down fire from the Heavens to prove an eternal point that God exists—and He’s the source of all miracles. In light of such, you can say miracles are not limited to healing only.
“Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.” – 1 Kings 18:38
One example we have is Moses who divided the Red Sea into two and drowned the Pharaoh and his armies. And we likewise have Jesus who turned water to wine and that symbolizes provision in times of thirst. So, God, as we at the Holy Church of Sepulcher have experienced need only hear your requests through prayers and miracles will be the norm in various parts of your lives. This touches your finances, family and loved ones, education, health, spiritual growth, and many more.
“All you have to do is ask and your accomplishments will seem little in comparison to God’s works”
“Never forgot, it’s only a single locked door separating you from experiencing God’s wonders and you also have the key in the form of prayers. So, why not use it?”
Prayers for Instant Miracles
God above, I stand before You today as Your humble servant, powerless and weak when compared to Your vast excellence. In this world and the next, You control all, including my life and I stand to gain everything in my worship of Your name.
Lord Almighty, I pray for instant miracles that will turn the supposed disadvantages in my life to advantages. Your miracles will touch all parts of my life and testimonies will not be far from my mouth in my long life Father. I pray that You allow not the jest from my enemies and instead, make me a living wonder that will preach Your mercies all the days of my life. I thank You for Your answers and In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen.
Miracle Prayer for Healing
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the Bible, it’s the miraculous feats that Your power can do. I saw how You healed the blind and my fingers traced down other examples in the texts like the cleansing of the ten lepers.
Father, like so, I pray for Your divine mercy and that You heal me completely in body, mind, and soul. Let Your divine power wash through all the nooks and crannies in my body and fill it up in The Name of Jesus. Make me whole and a walking testimony, so I may dance in jubilations to Your name. I uplift Your name for the favor and In Jesus Name, Amen.
Miracle Healing Prayer for the Sick
Father, we pray on the behalf of “name of the individual who is sick” today to request for Your intervention. We cannot do it alone and if we tried, we know we cannot stomach the potential consequences. So, we stand before You today and ask that You heal “Name” of his/her sickness. Numerous examples are in the bible that are greater than this and there hence we know that this is a miracle lying in wait.
Thus, we pray, with the knowledge that this will not keep him/her down and with his/her strength tomorrow, he/she will give thanks to You Oh Lord.
I thank You for the mighty help, and for allowing the thoughtfulness to pray before You, and In Jesus Name I Pray, Amen.

Miracle Verses from the Bible
“By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.
” – Acts 3:16

Submit your miracle prayer requests and the Holy Church of Sepulcher will organize prayer sessions on your behalf. Now, we have a question for you in the form of this bible verse
“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” – Jeremiah 32:27
A miracle is a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of the divine. When Christians talk about a miracle, they mean an event that is not “normal” – that is, one that should not be able to happen according to the laws of nature.
The Gospels describe 35 miracles that Jesus performed. Over half of these 35 stories are about Jesus healing sick people. Others describe Jesus casting out demons from people. On three occasions, Jesus brought dead people back to life. The rest of the stories show Jesus’ power over things – changing water into wine, feeding a great crowd with very little food, walking on water, calming a storm. This is just a snapshot of the miracles of Jesus. These miracles help us to understand that Jesus was more than just a man. They also show us what God is like – what He cares about and what He chooses to do for His people. That includes us. Here are six prayers for miracles:
Often, when we pray for miracles to happen in our lives, we are also praying for healing to happen in our lives as well. We see countless examples of healing happening in Scripture through Jesus’ healing power. The same is possible in our daily lives: Lord Jesus, heal me. Heal in me whatever You see needs healing. Heal me of whatever might separate me from you. Heal my memory, heal my heart, heal my emotions, heal my spirit, heal my body and heal my soul. Lay Your hands gently upon me and Heal me through Your love for me. Amen.
For Miracle Power
Miracle power testifies that God’s touch is always a heartbeat away. It’s important that we are conscious of God at work in our lives daily. Miracle power can happen in your life when you have faith and trust that miracles can really happen. Are you ready to unleash that miracle power? This prayer will guide you: Heavenly Father, I open my heart wide to receive the love of God. As I receive God’s love as universal supply, all my affairs are healed. I realize and accept the healing power of the Universe as love, and I allow the healing power that is love to penetrate my life. I readily accept the healing power of love in my life and I know that as love, God is my limitless and abundant supply made manifest. I feel the outpouring of God’s love in my body and mind. I feel God’s love in my affairs, and I know all is well. Amen.
For Faith to Always Believe
When we pray for miracles, it’s important that we understand that we too are miraculous beings. We wouldn’t be here without the power of God’s hand and His miraculous power being at work. When we believe in this power, all things are possible:
Jesus, Your array of miracles, a true manifestation of Your divinity draws the admiration of searching souls. Never let it be said, ‘Miracles do not exist!’ You are the living example of such actions. Bless me with the faith to always believe, to affirm the Supreme Power of Your miracles, be they of a physical or spiritual nature. Grant me the aptitude to instantly perceive the source of all supernatural occurrences. So only Your excellence shall be glorified. Jesus, my existence is a wonderful miracle. Amen.
For What Only God Can Do
Don’t limit your prayers only to simple situations that don’t require much divine intervention to change. Instead, make a habit of praying for big things that only God can do. For example, instead of praying to get through each workday well, pray for a bigger vision of your vocation and the courage you need to fulfill it, even if that means finding an entirely new job. Invite God to do something incredibly powerful in each situation that you bring to Him: Lord, I am praying for what only You can do. I am praying for a miracle. I know the source from which it will come. I trust in You to send me a sign. Teach me dear Lord to know wonder. And, if You are willing, I am waiting, ready to receive my miracle today. Amen.
For God’s Strength to Fight Spiritual Battles
You’ll never be able to lose a battle when you fight with God’s strength flowing through you. So don’t rely on your own limited strength; pray for God to empower you to do battle in every situation and that this strength will enable you to make miracles happen: Dear God, in the name of Jesus, we ask that You come against strongholds, demonic influences, spiritual attacks, and bondages. We believe you have the miraculous power and strength to conquer the darkest enemy, break the strongest barrier, and silence the greatest deceiver. Your name is Worthy, Glorious, Almighty in power and we claim victory today in Your name. Send Your mightiest warriors to fight this battle for us. Lord, to You the darkness shines as bright as the day. Shine Your light upon us, free us, give us peace, and snatch us back from the enemy’s grip. Amen.
