God of the Universe, we worship you and call all of our bodies and minds into alignment with your Kingdom. Your Kingdom is free of pain. The pain in our bodies and the emotional pain that some of us are experiencing is not of God. We take authority over this pain and command it to leave.
We speak healing into the injured bodies of our brothers and sisters across the globe. Migraines and chronic headaches, back pain, TMJ disorder, menstrual pain, neuralgia, pain after surgery, whatever it is, God, we command it to glorify you: to be healed, leaving the body and spirit free to worship you in wholeness, Jesus.
We also speak healing over the emotions of millions of hurting people in the world, especially each and every hurting person who reads this prayer. Holy Spirit, embrace them with your grace and mercy and love. Heal us with the power of your unconditional love. Help us to know what might be hindering our healing. Help us to let go of our pain and to forgive anyone who has hurt us. You are bigger than pain and bigger than offense, Jesus. Thank you for helping us to become whole again.
Philippians 3:14 KJV I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Father, we lift up these prayers to you:
Thank you for Robin and her daughter in the UK:
Thank you for praying for us. Please pray for my daughter to recover from her illness. She has been admitted since last year. Only god can touch my daughter and bless her with a miracle. I plead and beg for I find myself doubting and being scared. I need the Lord to restore my family and bring us back together. My daughter is such a loving, caring and giving child, and seeing her in turmoil and in pain breaks our hearts. She does so much for charities and gives herself to others and now I find the doctors not being able to help. I need God to perform his promise and heal us all as a family. Amen. Thank you
Bless Sharon with favor in the Canadian visa department and with healing:
Please pray that I will get my ten years Canadian visa work permit, permanent residency, and a good job in Canada. I need healing for my heel and knee pain. Also need a closer walk with God. Spiritual and physical healing.
Lord, we pray for Jamie in Columbia, SC:
I very recently began my journey to build a genuine and lasting relationship with God. In the meanwhile I am uncomfortable communicating with God other than to say thanks for my blessings, as I feel asking of Him when I am not fully committed to Him is less than I feel He is worthy of and I can not bring myself to do that.
I have a 1 year old daughter who is my everything. Wednesday morning I am going to court after a lengthy battle (not custody related). I have spent hours preparing for this because of my lack of financial ability to obtain an attorney. This has by far been the most challenging, painful, and frightening experience I’ve ever been through. I have been mentally beat down, legally bullied, and have been stripped of the most important thing to me – my ability to protect my child and provide for her everything she is deserving of. Because the father of my child has a very expensive, very good lawyer he was about to have some very unjust and not in the best interest of our daughter ‘rules’ put into our original court order, limiting my ability to make decisions to protect her from unsafe situations.
I pray that God is with us Wednesday morning. I pray that he is in the heart and mind of the judge, allowing her to see what’s right here, to not be fooled by the trickery or an experienced lawyer. I pray that I am re afforded the ability to protect my daughter, to provide for her properly, to be allowed to give her the best, everything she deserves, and more. I pray that God gives me the strength, wisdom, and clarity to communicate effectively with the judge. I pray that God is with my daughters father and lawyer and puts it in their hearts to put our daughters best interest ahead of her Fathers best interest.
If I knew how to put in to words the extent of my gratitude I would. Thank you, so much.
Heal Glenda’s friend in North Carolina. We agree with her prayer for pain relief.:
My best friend is in the hospital and has been very sick for quite some time. Today she is in a lot of pain due to severe bladder spasms. She has Calciphylaxsis which can cause tissue to die. She has had surgery on both hips to remove dead tissue. Things are beginning to heal, but she is still dealing with so much pain. Please join me in my prayer that God touch her and heal her body and ease the awful pain. Thank you all and I ask that God richly bless each and every one of you in a very special way.
God, I pray that the power that you sent in healing my depression and bipolar disorder would rain down on Marian right now. Heal her mental and physical pains, Holy Spirit:
I’m Marian and I’m suffering from severe depression. I need prayerful brothers and sisters to help me. Please ask God to send guardian angels and Jesus to lift the burdens from me. Please. I also hurt from severe pain. Pray that the doctor can give me the best medication. Amen! Thank You
Heal Rick in Alabama:
In terrible pain from a collapsed disc low in my neck. Losing use of left hand. Haven’t slept more that 3 hours a night in 6 weeks.
We lift up Henry’s prayer request from Tennessee for his daughter:
This prayer is for my daughters weak spirit whom is sick from chemical imbalance and also suffers from depression and a periodic addiction. She is suffering tremendously. The state has taken one of her children and now trying to get the other. She is pregnant and has sought help and there is trouble for her there as well in fear of them taking that child as well. There is much spiritual pain. I hurt for her and my grandbabies. God’s intervention is desperately needed to save her from this agony along with the children. She does love them and tries very hard to care for their needs. Her sickness is strong and her light is dim. God please save them. Make her strong and victorious through the blood of Christ. Help her to fight off these demons. I pray my daughter be restored and her children returned. Through Christ precious name Amen
Thank you for providing for Grace and her family:
The bank wants to repossess my house though I have been paying the agreed amount. I am scared to live in the street with 4 children. I am a faithful tither.
I have tried to arrange with them but they declined my proposal. Please help.
From Johannesburg, South Africa to New York City in the USA, from Zimbabwe to New Zealand, Lord, you know the needs brought to you in private prayer requests. We trust you and your plan for our lives. We love you Jesus!
The Bible encourages us to pray for everything: “In every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6, NIV). “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Ephesians 6:18, NIV). One of the most obvious and common occasions for prayer, of course, is when we are suffering from a sickness or simply the painful effects of aging.
Sometimes, however, praying repeatedly for our physical aches and ailments can turn us inward and foster unhealthy fixations on ourselves and our pains. But there is a way to pray for our own pains without dwelling on them. Call it “pairing” your prayers.
That is, whenever you pray for healing or relief from some ailment or pain, pray also for others—ideally, a specific person—who suffers similarly.
Pairing your prayers may sound something like this:
“God, please grant me relief from this migraine headache, quickly and completely, even as I ask you to remember Elissa who also suffers from frequent migraines. Free her completely from both causes and symptoms.”
Another time, your prayer might be similar to this one:
“Lord, I need your help right now. Deliver me from this infection or virus or whatever it is that is making me so sick. And while you’re doing that, please visit Rita, who I know deals almost daily with the pain of fibromyalgia. Send her relief and healing.”
Pairing your prayers can not only take your focus off yourself; it can actually turn your sickness into an occasion for ministry! It can discourage the enemy of your soul who may have sent (or is trying to use) your ailment. And it can actually transform a prayer for healing into a prayer of thanksgiving, as you are reminded that some people carry heavier and more relentless burdens than you may be suffering at any given moment. Most importantly, of course, because God loves to answer prayer, your pain may be the path to someone else’s healing.
Try it. Pair your prayers, and watch God use you…and your pain.
