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.
~ Rebecca Barlow Jordan
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
~ Debbie McDaniel
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

Healing Bible Verses
My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

Return to 7 Daily Prayers to Get You Through The Week
Prayer for healing, strength, and protection
People face all sorts of problems every day. There are times when problems turn into real unfortunate events and happenings. And sadly, there are moments when nobody is there for you when you need help. But this is our own conception: that nobody is there to help us. God is there and we need to pray for healing, strength, and protection. We need to talk to Him in order to get help.
God is watching us and takes care of us. He sends Guardian Angels to protect us here, on Earth. We are not alone. There are no seconds of our life when we are alone. That is only what those who don’t have faith in God’s powers think. But did you know that even these people that refuse to believe in the existence of God, have critical moments in their life when they start to pray? They start to pray in their own manner because they don’t know how to pray and ask for God’s help. God helps them anyway from that moment on because their prayers are a sign that they reached the right path. They saw how hard it is to live without God. They wanted help and the only one who could help them was God.
God appreciates when someone that has taken a wrong path comes back to Him. God loves that person even more than before.
Some people pray to God every night before they go to sleep. They pray for healing, strength, and protection, but do they pay attention to the fact that sometimes we could just be thankful for all we have, instead of asking for more?
It’s good to know that every prayer should end with “Thank you, God, for all the good things in my life because they make me happy and loved and thank you also for the bad things that I went through because they made me stronger and they made me see how good You are!”
God loves us equally. We are all His beloved children. But we should not take this for granted and we should learn how to pray. We should know what to ask and thank for in a prayer for healing, strength, and protection.
How you should pray for healing, strength, and protection
Before all of these, you should take into consideration that you should find a quiet place where you can pray. You should clear your mind and you must think only of the fact that you will have a conversation with Him.
With your soul full of trust and with your mind full of God and the Angels, kneel down and you will feel a warm presence. Your Guardian Angel will kneel down too next to you. Start your prayer with “Thank you God for listening to me!”, whatever you want to pray for. Your Guardian Angel will make the connection between you and God and the prayer will be heard by God.
Be sincere when you pray! Open your mind and your soul and tell God all the things you did. Even if they are bad, even if they are good. God knows everything, but you have to confess all to prove to God that you want to be healed and to be saved by His great power and love.
What is a prayer?
A prayer is your conversation with God. That is why you must be sincere in everything you ask and everything you tell him. A prayer for healing, strength, and protection is our direct line to heaven. A conversation with God should never be a bother for you. I have heard people say they wouldn’t spend their little spare time to talk to God because they prefer to do something else instead.
Have you ever ask yourself if God wants to spend his time listening to us? His unconditional love for us is huge and He makes time at every hour and moment in a day and in our lives to listen to us. We should make time to talk to God.
Pray with worship and reverence. We should thank God for all He did for us.
Pray for healing, strength, and protection and get God close to you. Thank Him for all in your life and especially thank Him for your Guardian Angel you have next to you because his mission is to watch you and take care of you.
Psalm 99:5 says: “Exalt the Lord our God! Worship at his footstool, for He is holy!”
Colossians 4:2 says about prayer: “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”
Jeremiah 33:3 tell us about prayer: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”
Psalm 18:6 teaches us what the real meaning of a prayer for healing, strength, and protection is: “In my distress I called to the Lord; /I cried to my God for help. /From his temple he heard my voice; /my cry came before him, into his ears.”
The Bible tells us that the only mission of a prayer is to connect us to God, to tell Him sincerely about our soul and our life, to thank Him for what He gave us, good or bad, and to listen to His answers.
Prayer for healing
Pains are everywhere. There are pains in our soul, our mind, or in our body. There are moments in our life when our heart hurts so much. There are moments in our life when we suffer from an injury or our mind is full of bad thoughts. We need to be healed, that is why you should know a prayer for healing.
Psalm 107:19-21 says “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress. He sent out His word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for mankind.”
Cry to the Lord in your trouble, He will save you. We should all cry to our Lord when we are in trouble. No matter who your God is, pray to Him because He will save you.
A prayer for healing will always be heard by God. He is ready to save us. He is there waiting for us to turn our faces to Him and to ask Him for help. Because even a man that doesn’t believe in God will do it at a hard moment in his life. And that means that God is his only hope. That is the moment when a man that doesn’t believe in God will start to believe in Him. And that itself is an important healing gift that God sends to us.
Psalm 147:3 tells us that “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
A prayer for healing is often the only thing that we need when we want to be saved from all the hard things that come to our life.
Prayer for strength
A prayer for strength is welcomed when we realize that our strength is not always enough for all the things we want to do. We cannot get through some of the hard situations in our life if we don’t have strength, and sometimes human beings simply don’t have enough of it.
That’s why I advise you to pray to God to give you strength and power to overcome all the obstacles in your life. Maybe you want to raise a child and you face some problems in this beautiful journey of raising a baby. Maybe you discover he has a disease, or maybe you face a moment when you don’t have enough money, you lose your job or you just can’t handle the situation, especially if you are both young parents.
Do you know how many young parents give birth to a beautiful child, but don’t have the money and the strength to get through all of the problems?
Do you know how many young couples choose not to have a child because they don’t feel prepared or they feel they don’t have the strength for such a responsibility? They needn’t feel this way if they call on God for help. Those young parents who called on God for help and sent Him a prayer for strength, they made it and they now have a beautiful child that can go to a good school and, in addition to this, they found the power and the strength to get a good job or to start their own business.
They didn’t do it all alone. God was there when they prayed for strength. God was there to help them and to give them the power to get through it all.
Remember that God is the best friend, father, and confidant we could have.
Take a look at Psalm 119:28: “My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to Your word.”
Isaiah 40:31 says: “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Psalm 46:1: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
God should be our refuge no matter if there is good or bad in our life. We should talk to God always.
A prayer for strength should sound like this: “Please, God, my savior, I need Your healing; help me to fill myself with strength and power for the hard times that will come.”
Prayer for protection
Everybody needs to be protected from the bad things that happen in life. I know a story about a child who grew up in an orphanage. She had nobody and she had no money when she had to leave, but her thought, every day, was a prayer for protection: “Please, God, protect me from bad things and give me strength to overcome this period. Protect me from unhappy events and take care of me because you are the only one who can help me!”
She had no money, no job and her only thought was to ask God for protection. Every day, this was her prayer. Because she was a beautiful, smart girl.
A prayer for protection was all she had. I was surprised and I was delighted to find out months after this that she got a job in a company and they gave her an apartment to live in. She developed her skills and she earned more and more money, then she bought herself an apartment.
She tells everybody now that she was protected by God all that time, and she is still protected by God. She sends God a prayer for protection every day. She has God in her soul and in her mind and she tells that without His love she couldn’t do anything.
Psalm 32:7 says that “You are my hiding place; /you will protect me from trouble/ and surround me with songs of deliverance.”
Exodus 14:14 tells us that “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
Psalm 9:9: “The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.”
A prayer for protection will always work with a prayer for healing and a prayer for strength. We should know that God means all of these: healing, strength, and protection. We should thank God every day that he is watching us and takes care of us.
A prayer for healing, strength, and protection will always be heard by God if we truly trust in His powers. A prayer for healing, strength, and protection will always be the best remedy because it means we talk to God: a remedy for the soul and mind.
God is waiting for us to ask him something. God listens to us every day. It doesn’t matter where you are: in the car, on the bus on your way to school or the office, at home or at your job, maybe on vacation. God wants us to trust Him. It is more important than where you pray. A prayer for healing, strength, and protection will be welcomed by God if you put all your faith in it. This is what God expects from us: faith.
A prayer for healing, strength, and protection will work if you have faith
Have faith and all good things will come to your life!
Have faith and God will heal and protect you!
Have faith and God will give you strength to keep doing what you want to do!
Ask God for help and He will help you!
Have faith and talk to God in a prayer for healing, strength, and protection! But don’t forget an important thing: thank Him for all He gives to you. Thank Him for who you are, thank Him for what you have, thank Him for always being there when you need Him.
Sometimes, a prayer for healing, strength, and protection needs a prayer for thanks for all the good things God gave you and all the moments God helped you. A prayer for healing, strength, and protection won’t work if you don’t trust with all of your heart that God will help you.
Keep God next to you. Feel His warmth when you call on Him and ask him in a prayer what you need. Let Him be in your soul and your life will be more beautiful. Turn your face to God and see the signs He sends to you. Trust Him and love Him.
Kneel down with your soul and listen to your heart. You will hear the words of God telling you that sometimes you need to send him a prayer for healing, strength, and protection. Every human being needs help and needs to be protected and only God can do it properly.
Be strong and call on God’s help! Pray and have faith in God, love Him and talk to Him, with the Archangels and your Guardian Angel. They are our best friends from the Celestial World that can help us no matter what is happening.
They hear our prayers and they have the power to heal us and to give us strength, while they protect us from all the bad things that could happen to us.
They show us the right path in life and they guide us to thinking positively, to see the beauty in all things around us, to forgive and to love.
Therefore, in your prayer for healing, or maybe for strength, or even for protection, tell God, the Archangels and your Guardian Angel that you are thankful for all you have. Tell them that you are thankful for the good people in your life and for the fact that they are there when you need them the most.
Send your prayer for healing, strength, and protection to God and thank him for being there for you.

On this page you’ll find inspirational prayers for healing from being sick, strength, comfort, and broken heart. Prayers and quotes from the bible for healing yourself, family members or a special friend in need. Read these prayers out loud or in silence.
God heals and you too can heal. God heals broken bodies, broken minds, broken hearts and broken lives. His presence alone has immense healing powers. You cannot be close to him without experiencing some degree of healing. So you may be wondering why you haven’t received his healing? You have not received it because you haven’t asked for it. You receive God’s healing energy that flows naturally, whether you are seeking it or not. But there is much more energy that is powerful and available to those who ask.
The first step to receiving this type of healing is to live closely to God. The benefits of doing so are endless. As you grow more intimately with God, he reveals his will to you more directly.
When the time is right, God encourages you to ask for this healing of brokenness in you or in someone else. The healing may be instantaneous or it may be a process. That is up to God. Your part is to trust God’s will fully and to thank him, for the restoration has begun.
Mark 5:34- Your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be healed
God rarely heals all the brokenness that exists in one’s life. His healing can completely cure someone, or it may not. It may instead help deal with the condition and bring positivity and peace into their life. Be open to the possibilities.
Even his servant Paul was told, “My grace is sufficient for you,” when he sought healing for the “thorn in his flesh.” Nonetheless, much healing is available to those whose lives are intimately interwoven with God’s. Just ask and you will receive.
Prayer for Healing:
Lord of Heaven,
I rest underneath your mighty wings of love.
I dwell within your gentle heart.
I know there is healing in your touch.
Through the sufferings of Christ I can ask for restoration
And trust in your goodness.
You are my Lord, my Saviour,
My healer and my friend.
I dwell within your gentle embrace.
Prayer for Believing:
Dear God, I know that the first step in all spiritual healing is to believe. I believe! I open my mind and heart believing in your infinite power and possibility. I believe that healing is a dynamic and reachable experience, a reality that can be experienced right now. I maintain a patient and loving attitude, for I believe that your healing activity is now at work in my mind and body. I look forward, with joyful expectation, to the perfect wholeness that you are now bringing into manifestation through me. I believe in your constant expression of perfect good in and through me. I rest in the certainty of your healing power. I know that with you all things are possible. In Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
Divine Healing Prayer
In this quiet moment,
I feel divine healing energy moving throughout my body and mind.
Your energy, your healing power flows within every atom, cell, and organ of my body temple. There is no condition greater than your power to heal, dear God, and there is no reason for me to doubt that healing is coming forth right now.
I trust you, dear God.
I feel stronger and healthier and filled with the peace of knowing that healing is taking place within me right now.
True healing is mine through your Spirit.
I surrender to you, God, in total faith and total peace.
I trust you, God.
I rest in an awareness of you, knowing that I am being renewed, restored, and revitalized.
In Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
I Cooperate with God
I cooperate with God, my Creator and re-creator.
I praise and bless the perfect functioning of my body.
I praise and bless the perfect response of my quickened mind.
I feel and express God’s healing life.
I envision myself as vital, alive, filled with peace, joy, ever-renewing life.
I am uplifted and strengthened in mind and body.
Today, I pray that my every thought, my every word affirms this faith.
I rejoice that today is a day of healing for me.
I acknowledge the one presence, the one power, God.
In Jesus Christ’s name… Amen
Renew My Mind, Body and Soul Prayer
Lord, I come before you today in need of your healing hand. In you all things are possible. Hold my heart within yours, and renew my mind, body, and soul
I am lost, but I am singing. You gave us life, and you also give us the gift of infinite joy. Give me the strength to move forward on the path you’ve laid out for me. Guide me towards better health, and give me the wisdom to identify those you’ve placed around me to help me get better
In your name I pray, Amen.
A Prayer Against Disease
Lord, your scripture says that you heal all diseases and whoever believes in you will not perish but have an everlasting life. Strengthen me, Lord, in this time of illness. Sustain him as he lays sick in his bed. When you were on Earth, you did all things good and healed all kinds of sickness.
You healed those who had diseases. You died and rose for our sins and that we may have eternal life, Lord. I believe in my heart that you are here with us today and that with your most holy power will remove all sicknesses and evils that roam the earth. Let it be done in your glory, Lord.
We praise and glorify your name, Amen.
A Prayer to Ease Pain
Almighty Father, Thank you for your love, grace and mercy. I pray that my discomforts will turn to comforts, my pains to gains, my deprivation to more blessings, my losses to profits, my tear to smiles, my sorrows to pleasures, my illness to wellness, my debts to credits and my dreams to realities.
As the scripture said “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” And he, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
I trust in you Lord and in you alone to heal me with any form of skepticism towards blessing that you will be employed upon me. I trust, Lord, that this agony and suffering that is only in my head, will come to end and positivism will shine upon me as I read, hear, study and preach the truth in the Bible.
Thanksgiving after Recovery
Almighty God and heavenly Father,
You are the fountain of life and healing. I bless your holy name and offer to you thanks for having delivered me from sickness and restored me to health. Grant me your eternal grace, I pray, that I may live a new life in true obedience to you. Guide me to do your will in all things devoting my life to your service. Thus living for you may I be found worthy of your kingdom, where you dwell in glory with your Son and your Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
Psalm 103:3 – He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
Matthew 7:7 – Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
James 4:2 – Ye have not, because ye ask not.
2 Corintians 12:7-9 – To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelation, there was given to me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
