Prayers for healing

Gathered together in this section of the website are several prayers for physical and mental health and healing.

If you are a parent or carer who currently has a sick child, you may find this page helpful which contains short prayers for poorly children. If you are awaiting surgery at the moment, there is a page here with two prayers you can pray and a film on God’s peace to meditate on.

There are also pages concerning mental well being and healing, such as prayers for recovery from addictions, and a prayer to help with fear.

Further down on this page are several general prayers of healing, strength and restoration for the body and mind, including prayers for loved ones and friends. There is also a short guide on how to pray for healing, with reference to miraculous healings in the early church.

Short prayer for healing

Lord of Heaven,
I rest underneath your mighty wings of love.
I dwell within your gentle heart.
I know there is healing in your touch.
Through the sufferings of Christ I can ask for restoration 
And trust in your goodness.
You are my Lord, my Saviour, 
My healer and my friend.
I dwell within your gentle embrace.
Amen.

Powerful Prayer for Healing

Jesus,
With just one touch from your Almighty creative hand,
You have healed the sick and raised the dead.
How amazing is your Lordship over all the earth,
How powerful is your redeeming love.
How great was your sacrifice to go before us and bring forgiveness and hope.
By your stripes I ask for healing.
Standing within your reign and rule I ask for restoration.
May life and wellness grow in fullness until it overflows. 

Amen.

Short prayer for healing of cancer

Lord of all the earth,
You hold the universe in Your hands
You place the stars in the sky
And lay the deep foundations of each planet.
You have created all things large and small with intricate beauty and life.

You have all authority and power to diminish tumour growths, to destroy cancer cells, to restore and heal each amazing part of our human bodies. 
Father, we call upon You now to come and heal this cancerous growth, to holt this invasion of the body in the name of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lord, our healer and redeemer Jesus Christ. 

Amen.

Prayer for healing and comfort

O Lord,
Only you know how hard life has been for me.
Only you have seen each moment of my day and night.
Only you feel my pain and understand my discomfort.
Only you are beside me through my grief and sorrow.
Only you have been within each moment to comfort me.
O Lord, break through the loneliness of my suffering.
You have encountered sorrow and laid a glorious path 
Of hope, healing and the promise of heaven in my heart.

Amen.

Prayer for a Sick Person

O Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need: 
We humbly beseech thee to behold, visit, and relieve thy sick servant N. for whom our prayers are desired. 
Look upon him with the eyes of thy mercy; comfort him with a sense of thy goodness; 
preserve him from the temptations of the enemy;
and give him patience under his affliction. 
In thy good time, restore him to health, 
and enable him to lead the residue of his life in thy fear, 
and to thy glory; 
and grant that finally he may dwell with thee in life everlasting; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.
