Prayers for healing can illustrate firsthand the incredible power of prayer. Through prayer for the sick and poor in health, we can find comfort in the most trying of times. Use these prayers, and keep them in your heart so they can remind you of God's nearness.
God heals and you too can heal. God heals broken bodies, broken minds, broken hearts and broken lives. His presence alone has immense healing powers. You cannot be close to him without experiencing some degree of healing. So you may be wondering why you haven't received his healing? You have not received it because you haven't asked for it. You receive God's healing energy that flows naturally, whether you are seeking it or not. But there is much more energy that is powerful and available to those who ask.
The first step to receiving this type of healing is to live closely to God. The benefits of doing so are endless. As you grow more intimately with God, he reveals his will to you more directly.
When the time is right, God encourages you to ask for this healing of brokenness in you or in someone else. The healing may be instantaneous or it may be a process. That is up to God. Your part is to trust God's will fully and to thank him, for the restoration has begun.
God rarely heals all the brokenness that exists in one's life. His healing can completely cure someone, or it may not. It may instead help deal with the condition and bring positivity and peace into their life. Be open to the possibilities.
The Bible says, Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord (James 5:14). We also know from Scripture that we can find healing through speaking the Word to our sickness. The Bible tells us, For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says (Mark 11:23). It's important that we note carefully from the previous verse that we must say clearly his need. This word must be spoken confidently. If you or someone you know if facing a difficult illness or disease, it can be hard to know where to turn. Many of us want to cry out to God, but don't know exactly what to pray. If you feel alone or afraid about the future and want to unleash God's healing power in your life, lift up these prayers for healing.
