Thank you for visiting Scripture Prayer for Healing. To fully understand the principles of praying scripturally, please read the teaching “Why Pray Scripture?” .
Hearing God: As it is rare to hear an audible voice from God, one of the most common ways God will speak to us is through His written Word and a small still voice inside us. Before reviewing the scripture references below that address what the Bible says about healing, ask the Holy Spirit for His revelation to join you. When certain verses capture your attention more than others, meditate and incorporate those into your personal daily prayer life.
Prayer for you: “Heavenly Father, we ask You to give complete knowledge of Your Will to this reader, and to give him/her Your spiritual wisdom and understanding as they seek You with all their hearts and lean not on their own understanding. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”

Scripture Prayer for Healing
I come before You in the name of Your son, Jesus, and I thank You that you are Jehovah Rapha, the Lord, our Healer. You are the same yesterday, today, and always. I thank You for the many ways You have supernaturally provided healing – through the laying on of hands, the anointing of oil by elders, through faith in believing Your Word above our circumstances and the gifts of healing and miracles. And you have also given man Your wisdom in medicine. I ask You to show me Your way out of sickness and into health today.
Father, Jesus was always obedient to Your will and He is our example of who You are. Jesus always prayed for the sick to be healed. He told no one who desired healing that He would not heal them because they were too old, had sin in their life, or because they needed to learn something. Even when people were dead, He prayed for them to be resurrected and healed.
Thank You that You reprove, correct, and train us in righteousness through Your word. So great is Your love, compassion, and desire for us to be well and to run the race You have before us that You included physical healing in the atonement. Your plans for us are for good and not for calamity.
I thank You, Father, for the new covenant promises in Christ and that I am no longer under the curse of the law recorded in Deuteronomy 28, which includes all sicknesses. Thank you that Christ redeemed me from these curses when He paid the price for my sin on the cross. You are so righteous and just. You do not invalidate the work of the cross by putting sickness on Your children today. It is Satan who comes to kill, steal, and destroy; and sickness does all of these. I am so grateful to you Lord, Jesus Christ, who wrought so much for me when You suffered and died. You came to bring life. And now, as an heir and joint heir with Christ Jesus, my inheritance in You is the blessing of good health.
You have said, “By Jesus’ stripes, you were healed” and I thank You, Jesus, that You took those stripes for my healing. It’s already been done. Lord, I cry out for discernment. Reveal to me the things that are unseen. Continue to show me the way out of sickness and the way to health. Expose the enemy and show me how to pray and receive the blessing of healing from You.
Father, You “spoke” all things into being when You created the universe, and You said that we were created in Your image. Therefore, life and death are in the power of my tongue, too. And Jesus, You demonstrated this when You walked the earth and did miracles with the command of your words. You rebuked fever in a woman and it left, and you spoke healing to all sicknesses. You even rebuked death from people.
You took authority over the fever when you “spoke” to it. When the little boy needed deliverance and healing, You healed him and You have said, “The things that I do, you shall do also, and greater things than this.” I am created in your image and You are my example, Lord. I submit to you and I resist the enemy by speaking to him.
So I follow Your example, and I speak to this sickness in Jesus name and I say, “Sickness (disease, pain), leave my body!” I speak to my body and I say, “Body, come into line with the Word that says you were healed by Jesus stripes.” I tell the enemy who comes to kill, steal, and destroy, “You must flee! I resist you in the name of Jesus!”
You told the disciples that if they just had the faith of a grain of mustard seed that they would “speak” to the mountain and it would be removed. Forgive me for doubt and unbelief and remove it far from me, and help me to believe Your Word above what I can see and feel.
I take up the sword which is Your word. Like You, Jesus, when you were tempted, I say, “It is written!” It is written that I was healed by Jesus stripes! It is written that believers lay hands on the sick and they shall recover! It is written that God wants me to prosper and be in good health, even as my soul prospers! It is written that whatever I ask in prayer I can pray and receive it! It is written that Jesus came to bring life and life abundantly! It is written that Christ redeemed me from the curse of the law which includes all sickness! Thank You, Jesus, that You are the living word!
Now I rest in your arms, Lord. I know that it is with faith and patience that I inherit the promises. Your kingdom is at hand. I trust you to heal my body. I receive the power of the Holy Spirit to quicken my mortal flesh, and your gifts of healing to work in my body. I receive Your wisdom. Thank you, Jesus. I give you all the glory and thank You with all my heart. Your grace is truly sufficient for me.
In Your mighty name, Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Here are 10 Prayers for Healing you can use today to speak life and hope into your situation.
1. 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
2. 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.
3. 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
4. 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. Amen. ~ Wendy van Eyck
5. A Prayer to Heal the Hurt
Father, help me get my focus back on you. I know I need to stop dwelling on my hurts and frustrations. Help me be faithful in prayer and put my hope in you. May the Holy Spirit guide and comfort and strengthen me. In Jesus’ name, Amen. ~ Living Free Every Day Devotional
6. A Prayer for Forgiveness
Dear God, I’m sorry for my sin. I ______________ (what you did), which was a sin against you, as well as a sin against __________ (who you hurt). Please help me turn from this behavior. I will begin ________________ (how you’ll change) instead of what I have done. Please forgive me and help me to grow in my relationship to you and _________, whom I’ve hurt. Thank you for your love and mercy. Thank you for forgiving me and choosing to forget my sin. In Jesus’ name, Amen. ~ Sue Schlesman
7. A Prayer for Those Who Feel Wounded
Dear God, We feel wounded, betrayed, and brokenhearted. We wonder sometimes if we can ever fully recover from the deep hurt we feel inside. Thank you that you know what we’ve been through and the struggles we still carry. Help us to forgive. Help us to let go. We know that we can move forward with you in peace and freedom. We pray for those who have hurt us right now, and ask for your power to work mightily within their lives. We leave them in your hands and find our comfort and strength in your spirit.
Thank you that you understand all that we’ve faced, that you see and you care. We ask that when the enemy taunts us with lies and tries to bring up the hurt of the past, you would silence his voice and allow us to walk free. We bring you all the stuff that he would use to try to trap us or stop us – the pain, the past, the mistakes, the struggles. And we lay it at your feet, again. Thank you for your healing, for your grace, for your hope. Thank you that you have set us free and will not waste the pain that we’ve carried. We look forward to the greater good and purpose you will bring through this struggle.
We love you Lord, we need you, we trust you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Debbie McDaniel

10. A Prayer to Heal from Depression
