May 7th is the National Day of Prayers in USA. The studies undertaken by Paw Research Center Study have revealed some interesting facts regarding prayers trends among the common people of USA. These extensive studies reveal that 55% of Americans pray daily. 23% pray once a week or even once a month. Only 21% of Americans rarely or never pray. In general humans pray daily, no matter whichever religion or sects they belong to. The main objective for praying lies in the fact that they offer Prayer For Health and well being for themselves and also for the loved ones around them.
What are the benefits of praying regularly?
One of the most mystical questions, which people often ask is why we pray. Below we have tried to understand a few basic facts.
You receive an inner strength
Most people are of the opinion that when you pray regularly, you receive divine strength from God. When you are going thru extreme exigencies, which could be private or sensitive in nature. You pray and ask for his solutions. For example if your loved one is suffering from cancer, you would diligently offer your Prayer For Health every day. You would request thru your prayer to God, that he cures your loved ones of the disease. You would also receive tremendous inner strength which would help you to overcome the personal exigency. This inner strength is created when you pray daily.
Decrease the level of stress that you are facing
We as human beings, all suffer from different types of stress levels. This could be due to personal or professional reasons. When you face extreme levels of stress, you do not know what decisions to take and thus you surrender to prayers. Experts believe that the moment you surrender yourself to God, immediately after you pray, you would feel a sudden sense of calmness envelope you. After a few minutes of simple prayer, you know longer face the acute stress level, which you had faced earlier. Now you are more confident that you can face the challenge and conquer it.
You create an opportunity to understand yourself in a better manner
When you pray, you are speaking to God, in your own language and in your comfortable time. If you have developed ill health, which could be the result of your bad lifestyle practices, you speak to God about your inability to control your vices. This simple acceptance of the fact, that you recognize your shortcomings, in your prayer for health gives you tremendous morale boost. This indicates that you are taking a positive step to recognize our limitation. This recognition and the power of prayer would help you to remove bad practices from your lifestyle and help you to have a better opinion regarding yourself. In the end this confidence boost, would help you to take positive decisions, which would improve the quality of life in general.
Cultivate positivity and hope
Today we live in a world which is fast spaced and you like most people want to be successful in every department of your life. You want to be a good mother and a good working professional. Sometimes you may not get the results you are looking for, due to certain circumstances. This could make you feel at loss. However when you pray, you cultivate a positive attitude towards life and you develop the ability to understand the reasons regarding your failure. You have faith in the healing touch of God and hope that he would create a better future for you. This positive attitude or hope would help you combat the exigency or problem. In fact if you can offer effective solutions, you would get noticed in the professional environment and the long awaited promotion would be yours in a few months time.
You are healthier
When you pray daily, even for a few minutes,, you are more healthy. Here being healthy could be related to both positive and mental health. There have been various studies which have indicated that when you pray with single mindedness, you get healed. There have been number of stories from around the world which have indicated that when you pray for good health, the miraculous touch of God heals you. In fact praying daily for a few minutes would help you to develop a strong immunity system and also lower your blood pressure.
Daily life is littered with all sorts of sickness. Flu season hit my household this week, and according to the CDC, most of United States is in the midst of a “high activity” flu season. One does not realize the luxury of the average day until it’s besieged and de-railed by influenza. Life comes to a pause, and workloads pile up.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that one in four adults had one or more chronic health conditions in 2012. Discouragement that leads to a depressive state cannot be categorized as a “it will never happen to me” notion. Mental health is an astronomical concern in this country. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one in five adults in the US experience mental illness in a given year.
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” (3 John 1:2)
If our bodies and minds are ailing at such a high rate, it shouldn’t surprise us that our spiritual lives are unhealthy as well. LifeWay Research released a report in April of 2017 that states “more than half of Americans have read little or none of the Bible.” Though we don’t have full control over flu germs, depression, and terminal disease, we can choose to read Scripture daily.
Let’s pray for complete health, mind, body and soul. To seek His counsel in all things, and welcome the wisdom of the Holy Spirit into the part of our hearts that need healing. A healthy life is comprised of more than a fit physically body free of injury and illness.

A Prayer for Complete, Good Health
Praise You for this, and every day that we get to wake up this side of heaven. Each day is laced with purpose, and we ask for Your wisdom and guidance through every one. Help us to live each day well, and for Your glory, from start to finish.
Thank You for Your Word, which breathes life into our tired souls and minds. You promise to meet us there, in study and prayer. Thank You for the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, paying with His life for our ease of access to our Heavenly Father through prayer and Scripture. Each biblical story and truth weave in and out our lives in Your perfect timing.
Father, You remind us throughout Scripture that You are faithful to Your people. Jeremiah 33:6 says, “Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.” So often, as in the Old Testament, we rebel, neglect to care for ourselves as You do, and end up tired and sick. But Father You are faithful to enwrap us in Your healing love each time we turn back to You.
Forgive us for neglecting to care for the life You have entrusted us with. The life that You have purposed specifically to do more than we can ask for or imagine. When we go our own way, we wear ourselves down, physically and mentally. Other times, we train physically but neglect our psyche. We often neglect our spiritual life.
Father, strengthen us to hold captive the joy You bless our lives with daily. Help us to walk freely in Your love. For as Paul reminds us in 1 Timothy 4:8 (VOICE), “Although training your body has certain payoffs, godliness benefits all things–holding promise for life here and now and promise for the life that is coming.” Send us more of Your Holy Spirit, to help us focus on Your Word daily. Give us hearts like Jesus.
Give us the wisdom to seek You first each day, before each decision. It’s often the little thoughts and daily decisions that lead us into a sudden spiral of bad health. Enlighten us and guide us through Your Word. Let our hearts burn for more of You each day.
Help us endure the pain of chronic conditions, some of which will not find healing in this broken and sinful world. We know that You work all things for good, but in those moments of chronic pain and suffering, it can be impossible to understand Your perfect and just hand in it all.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
1 Corinthians 6:19–20
There are many excellent reasons to take good care of your body. You can lessen or avoid entirely the discomfort, pain, and expense associated with many illnesses, diseases, and chronic conditions, both mild and severe. You can feel rested, strong, energetic, and happy on a daily basis, instead of being tired and down. You can enjoy the increased self-esteem and confidence that comes from being in control and from looking and feeling the way you want to. And you can enjoy a higher-quality, longer, and more productive life. Perhaps the best reason, though, for taking good care of yourself is found in the quote above from 1 Corinthians. Your body is not your own – God has placed the Holy Spirit in the temple that is your body, with the instruction to honor God with your body. In this light, good care of your body is an important element of your faith.
Taking proper care of yourself, however, can be challenging. It requires knowledge, discipline, effort, and persistence. But it is an extremely worthwhile endeavor, and you do not have to do it alone. This website will help you to establish a regular practice of prayer to enlist God’s help in meeting your health-related goals.

“When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, “Do you wish to get well?” – John 5:6
Our health is important simply because it is the key to living well and long. Despite its necessity, there are a lot of illnesses that pose a risk to our health and we always try to avoid them. Luckily for us, God has us covered in terms of protection.
Wherein there are numerous instances in the Bible, with them being the different promises of long life, prosperity, and good health made to Man. All these promises though have a requirement which is in the form of total love, obedience, and prayers to God.
Abraham and Isaac fulfilled these requirements and they were rewarded by God for their love and obedience. Now, to this rule, you’re no exception yourself. Therein, all you have to do is to have a deep, personal talk with God. In other words, pray to the El Shaddai—who always listens.
“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” – 1 Timothy 4:8
