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
8. A Prayer to Heal a Struggling Relationship
Dear God, I struggle in my relationship with ______. I need You to give me wisdom on how to love ____ well. You are my shield and defender. Show me how, when and where to erect boundaries in our relationship. I believe You are my healer and I trust You to guard my heart and mind. I need Your specific directions on how to interact with ______.
I want to love _____ with a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. (1 Timothy 1:5) I forgive ______ for hurting me and forgive me for ______. Help me to love ______ courageously. Fill me with Your truth and compel me to fearlessly tell the truth with love. Let Your perfect love cast out all of my fears related to our relationship. I surrender what I think our relationship should be. Please transform it so that it honors You. In Jesus, I pray. Amen ~ Jennifer O. White
9. A Prayer for When Time Doesn’t Heal a Broken Heart
Lord, please heal my broken heart. Fill me with the peace and joy I know can only come from You during this hard time. Walk closely beside me during my journey to healing and recovery that I know is possible through Your power alone. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Tracie Miles
10. A Prayer to Heal from Depression
Lord, it seems as if my world has collapsed, hurling me into a deep, dark pit. I come to you in complete surrender. I am desperate for you, helpless and afraid. Please lift me out of this pit and show me the way, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen ~ Mary Southerland
How to Pray for Healing – Max Lucado
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.”
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

Renew My Mind, Body and Soul
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 come to you with grace.
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.
To Heal a Friend
Think, o God, of our friend who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.
Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit
that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will.
We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew his strength,
and heal what ails him in Your loving name.
Thank You, Lord.
A Prayer for Healing a Loved One
All our times are in Thy hand.
All diseases come at Thy call, and go at Thy bidding.
Thou redeemest our life from destruction, and crownest us with loving kindness and tender mercies.
We bless Thee, that Thou hast heard prayer, and commanded deliverances for our friend and
Thy servant, who has been under Thine afflicting hand.
He (or she) was brought low, but Thou hast helped him (her).
May he (she) not only live, but declare the works of the Lord!
As Thou hast delivered his eyes from tears, his feet from falling, and his soul from death,
may he daily inquire:What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits towards me,and
resolve to offer unto Thee the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and to call upon the name of the Lord.
May we ever remember that recovery is only a reprieve and
that some day we will go to our rest in the Lord.
May we therefore secure the righteous path and live with eternity ever in our view.

Lord Almighty, You loved us so much. You were sent from your Father,
sent to save us from destruction. We truly can never make it to Heaven without the help of Jesus the Son,
who was sent to earth to help us.
You, Lord are full of mercy and grace, please forgive us for our faults.
Lord Jesus, in you all healing is performed. You Lord are the miracle worker.

You know our thoughts, our sighings and our cryings and every hair on our head.
You are Wonderful and make all good things for us. Heal us Lord, if it be Your will.
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.
My Lighthouse of Hope
Most gracious and loving Father, I want to thank You for all the blessings Youve given me, my family and friends and all those I hold dear.
Thank You Lord for giving me another day to see the beauty of your creations. You know the state of crisis that I am in now Lord. I want to be of use again to You, Lord. In the time of my hospitalization, You Lord remain as my rock and my anchor.
You stand as my lighthouse giving me hope. I pray Lord that you will heal me soon.
In Jesus name, Amen.
A Prayer for Doctor’s Wisdom
Dear Lord, Guide my doctor’s hands and give him wisdom.
Show him the way and help him to heal me.
I put my faith in you and the medical professionals that you have brought to me.
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.
What does the Bible say about healing?
“Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he binds up; he shatters, but his hands heal.”
“And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospelof the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.”
“And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spoke unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.”
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that you may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous man is effective and has great strength.”

Are you financially broke or suffering under a burden of debt?
We hope this prayer for financial healing and information contained in this article will give you some guidance for healing your finances.
Every person in one way or the other struggle in the area of finances at some point in his/her life. Christians are not exempted from this predicament despite observing great financial measures and much self-discipline and self-control on our part.
We strive to make both ends meet, we juggle second jobs, we budget our salary as frugal as possible only to be confronted with lack, depletion, and money woes. Our home mortgage or rent is a monthly headache not to mention the utility bills and other household and family expenses. If we are earning a particular amount monthly, then our bills are almost double. To our distress, we depend on credit cards and other loans only to go deeper in a tumult of debts.
Is there a way out or are we welcoming a lifetime of poverty, mendicancy, or lack? What does the Bible teach about healing in finances? Or is there such a biblical basis or principle?
Our God is a very rich God, in fact, He owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalm 50.10) or better yet the entire universe. He is the God of supernatural and divine provision. He is more than enough to supply all our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4.19)
If that is the case, why do we still struggle financially if He can just give us everything we need, want or desire? God’s original intent is for man to live in abundance, provision, and multiplication. Since the fall of man in the Genesis account, man’s relationship with God was adversely affected because of sin and his sinful nature and the world became depraved and fallen as well.
It has been a constant struggle for man to exist and live in this world because of the enemy of our souls and all the repercussions or consequences of sin. With that condition, man need a Savior to reconcile Him back to God for him to be made new and live and experience the abundant life God offers for him in the first place.
In the Old Testament, the Savior is being foreshadowed in the life of the nation of Israel, God’s chosen people. God has been pursuing the Israelites to love Him back like a longing husband wooing his wife. Every event, character, trial or story in this period foreshadows this coming Savior who is able to deliver and save this favored and blessed people from tyranny. Come the New Testament, and this Savior called Jesus Christ, the Son of God was born and He lived and taught the people the kingdom mindset. He not only taught, healed, and manifested signs and wonders but He is able to save the souls of the entire human race, past, present and future from sin, sickness, and hell.
Father God through Christ Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit is more than able to do more than we can ask, think or imagine. The Triune God is interested not only in your eternal salvation but also in all facets of your life including your finances.
God has set natural laws in the universe. If you adhere to them like the law of gravity or attraction, life will go well with you but if you go against them, life will be difficult, if not dangerous. With the same natural laws, God has set in motion supernatural laws and principles that you can either obey or reject, it is your choice.
In the Old Testament, the principle of tithing is carefully observed by the patriarchs and the Israelite race. Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything he got from the war. (Genesis 14) Jacob vowed to give back to God ten percent of everything if God will take care of him from that day forward. (Genesis 28.20) In the books of Leviticus, Numbers, Malachi, tithing is commanded by God.
In the New testament, Jesus Himself did not remove tithing –
(Matthew 23:23)“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.”
He simply said that they need to practice justice and mercy and faith while observing the rest like returning the tithe. For Christians, obeying God by paying our tithes through our local church is not an obligation or a requirement but a sincere gesture of honoring God through the first fruits of our wealth. More than just by being under the umbrella of God’s favor and protection, observing the tithe faithfully is part of the kingdom mindset or royal priesthood, being royal prince and princesses in God’s kingdom. We are not paupers who are always in want, lack or poverty. By being royalty when we accepted Jesus as our King, we embrace and enact a lifestyle of royalty where we entrust our lives to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
God desires for His children to live a lifestyle of abundance, power, authority, and excellence. Joseph was born to be a prince and his journey from pit to Potiphar to the palace says just that. Amidst oppression, betrayal, abuse, and much tragedy, Joseph turns his environment into a palace every time. In the end, he became second in command to the Egyptian pharaoh and was responsible for saving nations from famine even his brothers who conspired and turned his back on him initially. (Genesis 37-50)
More than just a coincidence, chance or good luck, Moses was raised by Pharaoh’s daughter and lived and was trained in the palace. For him to lead the Israelite nation out of Egypt, he has to be molded as a prince to perform his impending responsibility and purpose to deliver the Hebrew slaves and lead them to the Promised Land. (Exodus book)
Jesus Himself is the Prince of Peace. He was born in a poor manger and nurtured by poor parents but He lived a life as a prince, not only a Savior among His people. He is able to turn water into wine, He fed multitudes with few loaves and fishes, He healed ALL diseases and drove out demons from the oppressed, and above all, He gave His life not out of generosity or lavishness but out of love, mercy, forgiveness, and gratitude. The ending is glorious in the future as Jesus the Royal Bridegroom marries the Body of Christ, the Church without blemish or wrinkle. (Revelations book)
The first step towards healing in finances is to allow God to dismantle our pauper or poverty mindsets or strongholds. We need to meditate, declare, obey, and practice what the Word of God teaches with regards to money or finances. It is always a heart issue, our motivation in giving back to God, to ourselves, to others, and the world around us. God loves a cheerful giver. In the same way that we let go of the poverty mindset, we also need to get out of the love of money, greed, and useless wastage.
The book of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes contain sayings on finances. Even if you enroll at Harvard Business school or take internships under Donald Trump or Robert Kiyosaki and other world-famous finance gurus, all the principles are based and taken from the Bible whether they know or like it or not.
You may study, meditate, and practice one chapter of Proverbs per day. Declare it, believe it and act on it daily. The world’s wisest person (of course next to Jesus), Solomon compiled and wrote them. You know Solomon’s grandeur and magnificence during His time.
For the practical side of it, assess and study your budget. Put four columns in a worksheet – SALARY – EXPENSES – DEBTS – PAYMENTS. Check your monthly expenses carefully considering the non-negotiables and the variables then stick with your list of expenses monthly. Devise a payment schedule for all debts, be logical and reasonable.
If you can engage in a new business venture or job or part-time freelancing work, it would be better. You may utilize your inherent or innate talents and acquire new skills. By doing that, you will be able to do more things and work better. You may also look for Christian finance programs or mentoring for you to be assisted how to handle your finances wisely and grow your money.
Find a Christian Debt Management company and work with them to get yourself out of debt. There are also many money management companies that will help you as well. We need to accept the responsibility to do the things that only we can do.
There is one story I have heard about a Christian billionaire. He was interviewed how he is able to put up and manage multi-million businesses. He said his secret was every morning when he wakes up, he spends hours worshipping God and through this time, God is giving him heavenly, creative ideas how to work wisely and handle his affairs in a godly way.
Another story of a Christian whose salary was only $800 monthly and his expenses was $1,600. He almost lost his apartment and suffered great financial problems for many years. In his broadcasted testimony he said, God reminded him of his tithe. He began tithing $20 weekly trusting God for everything and then he stopped again. His car broke down and he was walking many miles on foot to meet his fiancée. Then, he heard God said buy her some flowers. He turned at a florist shop and tried to buy flowers but there was none so he just bought a teddy bear. Then, the owner asked him what he does for a living. He said, he is a financial adviser and to his surprise, the owner had lumpsum and wanted him to manage his finances. When he did well, he referred him to 6 of his friends and he managed theirs as well. Right now, this person is a famous Christian financial adviser and his worldwide ministry feeds millions of meals to African children and helps disaster victims get on with life.
If God can help him out of his debt problems He can help you too!
Let us pray this prayer for healing in finances—
“Heavenly Father, You are the Giver of good gifts. You are the one true God who made the heavens and the earth. Everything we see with our eyes, hear and taste and smell, everything is from You alone. It is Your desire to lavish us with Your goodness, favor and grace and so we do receive them all now.
Forgive me, Father for the many times I remain stuck with poverty, lack, irresponsibility, wastage, defeat, and laziness. Heal and cleanse me, O God from anything that binds me to this mentality and stronghold. I reject the lie from the enemy that I will forever be in debt, depletion, want or need. That You are not able to provide and take care of me and my family. I break, shatter, and destroy all the lies of the enemy that this life of financial problems is what I deserve and will eat the fruit of.
I believe the truth that Jesus died to give me an abundant life, profusely abounding to the full, until it overflows. I take hold of the promises in the Scriptures that You will supply all my needs through Jesus, Your Son by the enablement of the Holy Spirit in my life. I believe and affirm that I am a part of the royal priesthood, a prince or princess in Your Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. I will walk, talk and live a lifestyle of a prince/princess for as long as I live. Be King over my life and my finances.
Impress upon my heart the importance of tithing and may I be faithful in doing your will in this area. Remind me of your scriptures in Malachi 3 that says you will remove the destroyer from my vineyard and everything that I plant will grow and not be devoured by the enemy when I tithe to my church.
I appropriate the promises in Deuteronomy 28 that I am blessed in the city and in the country and everywhere I go. That my spirit, soul, and body, my family, career, ministry, finances, relationships, and dreams and desires are prospering. I call to things that are not as though they were. Thank You God that you are now healing my finances. Give me wisdom how to go from where I am to where I need to be… how to go from poverty and debt to prosperity and abundance, from sickness to divine health, from joblessness to opportunities and promotions, from death to life. I choose You and I choose life.
I praise You for everything You have done for me today. May I be a living testimony of Your faithfulness and goodness for generations to come. I love You with all my heart, my soul, my body, my strength and everything within me. All is well now with my soul. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
