Prayers for Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Healing
Healing in Touch
Does Prayer Really Work?
According to the Huffington Post:
83% of Americans believe that prayer works.
However the Scientific community has no way to prove it. Science studies the natural world with facts, figures, and quantifiable measurements. The God of the Bible is all about the supernatural world. There is not really a way to measure prayer with our scientific ways. But that doesn't stop people from praying does it?
And do we have to understand it to use it? I mean, I don't know how electricity works, yet I turn my lights on every morning. I don't know how the water comes up from the well, yet I take a shower every day. I can have the benefit without knowing the whole picture. So I choose to pray - for myself, my family, and everyone I meet. I am praying for you even though we haven't met yet. When I go to the Dr I pray for everyone to be healed. When I go to the grocery store I pray that everyone there will have an abundance of God's provision. When I bring my kids to school I pray for all the kids there. It can't hurt right?
Prayer for a Physical Healing
You made me. You knit me together in my mother's womb. And after you made me you said I was good. Lord - you know that I am suffering and I am not good with my physical body right now. I rebuke the spirit of infirmity in my body and I command it to leave. I release the perfect healing of Jesus into my physical body, in Jesus Name.
Lord you were pierced for my transgressions, and you bore my sickness on your body at Calvary. I do not need to carry it anymore. I don't want this physical sickness anymore. Even though it is familiar, I am ready to be whole. I see my sickness on Your body at Calvary. And I receive your wholeness and health that You died to give me. By Your stripes Lord, I am healed.
If I am missing parts, Lord, you didn't make me this way. This is not what I look like in Heaven. I come boldly before your throne and ask You to restore my body to the way You made it - perfect. I see myself in Heaven with full limbs and all body parts that You gave me. As it is in Heaven, let it be done to me here on Earth, in Jesus Name.
Something Great is Coming
Prayer for Emotional Healing
I know that You are good and the Devil is bad. You saw what happened. I have these scars in my heart that I don't know how to fix. You know what I have tried in order to be well. And yet my heart is still in pieces. I ask you Lord, to take my brokenness and make me whole emotionally.
I see my scars all over your body at Calvary. You were whipped for me. You know what it feels like. You were rejected. Your friends left too. I see all my hurt upon You today. And I receive the healing in my heart that You died to give me.
I know You want to heal me, just like You healed all those people in the Bible. Lord, flood me with your Holy Spirit, and fix my heart - from the inside out. Let your glory fill every hole in my heart. And today, I am choosing to give to you my anger, my thoughts of revenge, and all my broken feelings. You said you are close to the brokenhearted. That means you are right here.
I am thanking you in advance for healing me emotionally. Please teach me all things, like how to put boundaries around myself and how to guard my heart. I don't want anyone to steal anything from me again. Thank you Jesus!
Prayer for Spiritual Healing
This one is the hardest. Because I don't know everything. I can't even tell you what I need. I am choosing to trust you with this part. Some days all I have is a groan. But You told me that I didn't need to understand everything as Your ways are higher than my ways. I don't need all the answers today. In my weakness I groan - and Your Spirit prays and intercedes for me even if I don't understand it. I trust You Lord.
And Lord, sometimes you crack me up! I can't believe you sent your Spirit to live in this house/tent of a body. You know where I have been, and yet still - you come. I open the door to my spirit - come in, lets commune. You already know I haven't swept up the mess yet. I was kind of hoping you could help me here. I'm not sure where to start.
Restore the places that the enemy of my soul has taken from me. This body is Your house now too. Lord - clean me, inside and out, as only You can. Let your Spirit rule this body, in Jesus Name.
What Does God Say About Healing?
Your Thoughts are Treasures
Which area do you want to receive Healing in first?
Psalm 147: 1-6 MSG
It’s a good thing to sing praise to our God;
praise is beautiful, praise is fitting.
God’s the one who rebuilds Jerusalem,
who regathers Israel’s scattered exiles.
He heals the heartbroken
and bandages their wounds.
He counts the stars
and assigns each a name.
Our Lord is great, with limitless strength;
we’ll never comprehend what he knows and does.
God puts the fallen on their feet again
and pushes the wicked into the ditch.

The Church is supposed to the the Hospital! Injury, hurt, trauma, abuse, divorce, witchcraft, drugs, alcohol, whatever – they all leave their mark on our mind, will, and emotions. Even Lazarus needed someone to remove the bandages after Jesus raised
