So people are arranged that most often theyturn to God and go to church only when the life situation seems to them unbearable, and they see no other way out. The most serious problem a person considers the appearance of a disease. It is the disease more often than all other difficulties that leads people into the church and makes them turn to God. Unfortunately, it is this problem that allows a person to improve and step on the right path that the Lord has indicated to people. However, many believe that there is a prayer for illnesses, after reading which they will be able to overcome their ailment. And now let’s find out more about this.
The fact is that very often, when a personhe starts to get sick, he asks himself the question: “Why do I need such punishment, for what sins do I pay?” At the same time, the more serious and serious the disease, the more people despair and “lament”. But one prayer from illness will not do a miracle, if in the depths of our soul we can not change our attitude to the disease itself, to our life and to God. Most of us have never aspired to learn more about the Lord, to delve into the essence of the commandments of God, and it is these moments that can primarily lie at the heart of human problems.
Each of us, and even more so the person whofaced with a disease, must sincerely repent and realize their mistakes. It is necessary to understand that prayer from illnesses is not a magical spell, it is an appeal to God and our patron saints with a sincere plea for help. Only when the soul of man is cleansed from sins, when he becomes on the path of repentance, will the healing come to him. Sometimes the healing of the soul is much more important than getting rid of bodily weakness.
When we rashly run to the temple, put a candle,kiss the icons, apply to holy relics, prayer from illnesses can bring us temporary relief, but only this we will not eliminate the problem as a whole. A person has to rethink many things and look at the world differently, because he was told the road by which to follow through life
Unfortunately, having received healing, people quicklythey forget how difficult it was for them, and again begin to sin and commit countless mistakes in life, and sometimes they stop walking again along the road leading to the temple. All this leads to the fact that the person is again overtaken by various sorrows and problems.
There are many wonderfulstories about how a huge number of people helped the Matrona prayer from illnesses. After treatment of the request for help to the Matron of Moscow miraculously, healing came, which the doctors could not explain from a medical point of view. Mother Matrona said that only when the heart has a sincere faith in God and the veneration of his commandments, healing comes, and in general the life of a person is getting better.
Very often women who dream of becomingmothers, but they can not conceive in any way, they pray to the Most Holy Theotokos. The prayer for women’s diseases becomes even stronger if the woman confessed, repented, communed.
There are different types of healing mentioned in Bible verses–physical healing, emotional healing and spiritual healing. The Bible has scriptures touching on several aspects of health and healing. There is no formula on how to pray for healing but the bible does offer several scriptures that you can pray verbatim as prayers for healing. We just need to learn what the Bible has to say about healing and pray the scriptures for healing.
The following prayer is for physical healing against sickness and diseases. Prior to praying the prayer try to read and meditate on these scriptures below. They will help to build your faith.
James 5:13-15 “Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.”
Isaiah 40:31 “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.”
Jeremiah 30:17 “I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the LORD, because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.”
3 John 1:2 “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.”
Psalm 107:19-20 “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.”
Psalm 103:1-5″Praise the LORD, my soul;all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul,and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Proverbs 4:20-22 “My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear 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 one’s whole body.”
Matthew 8:16 “When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.”
John 6:63 “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”
Luke 17:6 He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.”
1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
Mark 11:23-24 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
Here is your Healing Prayer for your Physical Healing
Heavenly Father, I attend to Your Word. I incline my ears to Your sayings. I will not let them depart from my eyes. I keep them in the midst of my heart, for they are life and healing to all my flesh. As You were with Moses, so are You with me. My eyes are not dim; neither is my natural vigor diminished. Blessed are my eyes for they see and my ears for they hear. “No evil will befall me , neither shall any plague come near my dwelling. For You have given angels charge over me . They keep me in all ways.” In my pathway is life, healing, and health. Jesus took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses. Therefore I refuse to allow sickness to dominate my body . The life of God flows within me , bringing healing to every fiber of my being. I am redeemed from the curse because Christ became a curse for me as your word says cursed is anyone who hangs upon a tree. The Blood of Jesus covers and protects me. It flows to every cell of my body , restoring life and health. My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. I pray for a release the right chemicals and hormones. My body is in perfect chemical balance. My pancreas secretes the proper amount of insulin for life and health. Every cancer (name your illness) and abnormal cell is uprooted from my body now and replaced by cells perfected by the Spirit of God. I believe that by Your stripes Lord Jesus I am healed and will continue to walk by faith and not by sight until I see the salvation of the Lord. In Jesus Name, Amen.

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.

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

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.
