A Prayer for Healing

4m | Sep 15, 2022

Not sure where to start? This short prayer will guide you into a thoughtful prayer for healing for yourself and others.

  • Share specifically what you want God to heal.
  • Lament with the Lord what is hardest.
  • Praise the Lord for who He is.
  • Surrender to God and remember His sovereignty.


  • Psalm 30:2 - O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.
  • Jeremiah 17:14 - Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.
  • Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart,  and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him,  and he will make straight your paths.
  • Isaiah 55:8-9 - For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
  • Psalm 84:11 - For the Lord God is a sun and shield;  the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.
