Prayers for Healing

Melissa HendersonBy Melissa Henderson4 Minutes

An unexpected troublesome medical diagnosis, a strained relationship with family or friend, and trying to forgive yourself are some of the times we go to God in prayer and ask for healing. When you think of prayers for healing, what comes to mind? Do you tend to think of physical healing first? What about mental and spiritual healing?

As believers, we are able to take our concerns and our joys to the Lord. He is always listening. God wants a connection with His children. Songs have been penned about taking our cares to the Lord and knowing He will answer. God will provide comfort and peace during times when healing is needed. Our prayers for healing may not be answered in the way we desire. Yet, God knows what is best. He will answer yes, no, or not now.

  • Father, my body aches with pain. Please cover me with Your loving hands and giving healing. Amen.
  • Abba Father, specifics are not known, but we have been asked to pray. Please heal the one who needs healing. Free their body and mind from all pain and sickness. Amen.

Are you part of a prayer ministry? Some churches have groups that offer anonymous prayer for anyone in need. Perhaps you could start a prayer team in your church or community. God is always available to hear our petitions.

Going to God and asking for prayers for healing can bring a deeper relationship with Him.

The Father is listening. Have you prayed today?
