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.

“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” – Jeremiah 32:27
One of my favorite days doing open-air evangelism in YWAM(Youth With A Mission) was at a high school, because the entire school was changed that day! Regardless that I’m not in YWAM anymore. I will tell this story to encourage your faith! Just a week after, I encountered a healing prayer requests that I can never forget!
It was in the middle of nowhere on some island in the Philippines where we went to evangelize. We went inside this small school of about 200 students to entertain them with godly skits and testimonies. Right after I gave my testimony on how precious my God is and how He saved a drug dealer like me, I gave the call to accept Jesus as Lord. Nobody was more amazed than I was when I saw 30+ hands go up, and then the whole school stood up. The entire 1st and 2nd year of high school said the prayer of salvation. Half of the students said that was their first time praying to put Christ as Lord over their lives. At this moment, I knew the heavens were shaking as it’s written that the angels are rejoicing over one sinner when they repent! How about a hundred!
Healing Prayer Requests to Save Our Souls
Though as amazing as open air is when it’s properly executed, it doesn’t compare to the impact you can make on one’s life when you personally go to them at their home. There were some hiccups that have happened when I tried to go without first asking God where to go, but with God, lives would be changed every time. At one point it seemed that everyday 1-5 would get saved when we went from house to house. Yes, rejections would come, but I’d rather try to obey God and fail; rather than not obey God at all, and never do anything for His Glory!
Half way through our outreach through the Visayas region; God really began to pour His Spirit upon me. My only concern was to evangelize house to house. Compassion had brewed up inside of me for the lost; especially those in the Philippines who were trying to get to God by achieving sanctification through good works. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saves us” -Titus 3:5 I put my eyes on God to get some evangelism training which I am forever grateful, and so are many others!
Powerful Healing Prayer to Save Our Bodies
During one of my ventures to evangelize, I encountered some Christians who blessed me with a bucket full of fresh oysters! I really felt so blessed with all those oysters, but little did I know; I’d be more blessed 20minutes after! Just after eating some snacks and trying to make small talk with the translator; the family asked for prayer. I then asked the father of the house what they wanted prayer for. He said, “For my family, for many of them are lost”. The father went on about how his brother is so lost and confused. I insisted twice, “what else?” He said “nothing” each time. His wife on the other hand pointed right back at him and started speaking in an unknown tongue. At this very moment God gave me a revelation that his back is in pain. While it was getting translated back to me what the gentleman was saying, I was convinced his back was in pain.
Sure enough he said, “My back is in pain, for years”. I told him, “God told me your back is in pain, He’s going to heal you!” Then said, “I’m going to pray for your family, and then for your back”. I asked him how much pain is it in, he replied, “My back is at a pain level of 8; zero not being painful and ten being the worst pain”. That short 5-minute prayer will never be forgotten. For I looked upon this grown man’s face as his eyes watered up. Then it was translated to me that all the pain was gone. Glory goes to God, as this prayer for healing was a huge step in faith on my part, which resulted in more confidence in God’s character to heal and break bondages.
Your Prayer Requests!
Had that man not asked, then he would’ve never experience the healing touch of God! I challenge you to ask as well! Don’t ask me but ask God, I’m only an instrument which is nothing without the Player holding the instrument. You can try to achieve your sanctification through good works, but you and I know you’ll never make it. It’s only by the blood of Jesus which you can come to boldly ask God anything, because you are heirs with Christ. Go ahead and ask with faith! Be fervent and don’t give up as persistence is faith.
