To listen to the blog post “A Prayer For Healing (Mental, Physical, & Emotional)” over reading it then click the play button below.
This post is going to give you a prayer for healing or actually several prayers for healing. Because let’s face it, not all healing that you need is physical. Sometimes it is mental or sometimes you may be hurting so bad that you do not even know what you need healing from. This is why I want to give you a prayer for healing. A prayer for healing in the areas of:
- Mental Healing
- Physical Healing
- And A General Prayer For Healing
Before You Pray: Things To Consider
Now before we get into each prayer for healing I want to share something with you. God does answer our prayers. It can be a yes, no, or not yet (which I have a blog post on that you can read here). So understand that although God loves us he is not some genie that gives us what we want all of the time. I can relate when I had a young family member die after I prayed so many prayers of healing. Just like David, when God decided to take his infant child. David prayed for his son to be healed but once the child died, David said the following:
David said, “While the baby was still alive, I fasted, and I cried. I thought, ‘Who knows? Maybe the Lord will feel sorry for me and let the baby live.’ But now that the baby is dead, why should I fast? I can’t bring him back to life. Someday I will go to him, but he cannot come back to me.” 2 Samuel 12: 22-23
So yes, we say a prayer for healing. But we also understand that there are times when God does not answer those prayers. But it does not keep us from trying. Also, check out my video below where I talk more about David. And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel by clicking here.
Things To Remember Before You Pray
- Consider adding some sort of fasting to your prayer. Whenever we read the Bible fasting has always been a way to get God’s attention. Fasting does not always have to be from food. Consider getting my spiritual fasting ebook (that you can click here to buy for only $1) that will teach you how to use fasting in conjunction with your prayer.
- Remember to pray without ceasing. Just as the Bible says: Rejoice always and delight in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
- And as you pray, remember to have faith. There is no point in praying for God to do something that you really believe in the back of your mind that he cannot do. It is only with FAITH that your prayers can be answered.
A Prayer For Mental Healing
I spoke about Christians and depression before in my blog here. I also suffered from depression before myself, which I talk about in the video below. So I can understand the need for mental healing and know the right prayer to say having been there myself.
Reach into the midst of my mind, my depression, my anxiety, and all the emotions that are within me and causing me pain. Give me peace beyond all understanding and allow me to rely on your word that tells me not to worry and to not be anxious for anything. I know Lord, that as long as I have you that my mind should be at peace. And therefore, Lord, I ask you to help me. In the only way that you can. I pray that you, ease my mind, worries, fears, and concerns. And if there is something that I need to do for my own mental healing then please bring this to my attention Lord, so that I may work on it.
In Jesus name, I pray, Amen
A Prayer For Physical Healing
When it comes to healing you should pray for divine healing but also for God to lead you to people who can help you. When my grandfather was diagnosed with colon cancer and his regular physician refused to treat him due to his old age. God gave my grandmother a dream that led her to another doctor who specialized in colon cancer. Which the doctor did remove the cancer from my grandfather a month later. Yes, God could have just healed my grandfather BUT he also gave my grandmother the wisdom to know who to go to, which gave him the same healing. Therefore, be open to how God wants to bring about your healing.
I know that I am a human and I am subjected to the physical limitations of this world. I also know that you are my father and have the ability to reach in with your helping hands and heal me from any affliction that I am suffering from physically. I pray that you put your hands on me now Lord, and heal the source of my infliction. I also pray that you lead me to friends, family, doctors, and specialists who are also able to aid in my healing.
In Jesus name, I pray,
A Prayer For General Healing
There are times when you just want to cry out to the Lord for healing but you may not really even know what you need healing from. Or maybe you do. Either way, here is a general prayer for healing that can be applied to any situation you may need healing from.
I need you right now to come in and help me. Help heal my mind, body, spirit, and my life. Only you, Lord, know the entire situation that is going on with me. And only you, Lord, know the source of my pain and the places where I am in need of healing. So I give you permission Lord to come into my mind, body, soul, and into my life; and heal the things within me that need to be healed.
In Jesus Name I pray, Amen
I really hope that these prayers for healing will help you out. And if you are praying for healing then I want you to know that right now I stand and agree with you for healing as well. The Bible states:
Again I say to you, that if two [believers on earth agree [that is, are of one mind, in harmony] about anything that they ask [within the will of God], it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. Matthew 18:19
