Prayer For Healing-The Body, Mind and Soul

Prayer is the keynote to heaven. Prayer is where we can find peace, comfort, and justice. Prayer is where we submit ourselves to Jesus and trust His devine intervention and justice.

What We Know for Sure When We Go to God in Prayer

Some people seem to think that God does not exist, or that He is a fixation in the mind of those who believe, or that He is dead. He isn’t, He is alive, and well, standing by for us to reach out to Him regardless of our state.

However, to put it in simple language, there will come a time in every human’s life when “every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus, Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God, The Father” (Philippians 2:11) that they need a divine touch. The words are often a plea; “God help me.”

God loves everyone the same and when someone calls upon His name, He hears their plea. Yet, it is important to remember our Spiritual state when we call upon Him.

Waiting Until Desperation -What Must Come First to Call on God

When waiting until a moment of desperation one must first realize they need His forgiveness if they have not believed on Him previously. It is important to know that all humans have sinned. God is forgiving and He does not have favorites. He loves and will save the sinner when they come to Him in sincerity for forgiveness and He answers prayers for healing.

The Desperate Cry of The Thief on the Cross is a prime example…

The thief on the cross, also known as Dismas, is a significant figure in Christian tradition. According to the New Testament, he was one of the two thieves crucified alongside Jesus Christ.

While the other thief mocked and blasphemed Jesus, Dismas turned to Jesus and asked for mercy, saying, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (Luke 23:42).

Jesus’ response to Dismas is a testament to His love and mercy. He says, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43). This response is significant because it shows that Dismas has been forgiven and will be with Jesus in heaven.

How David Prayer After He Had Sinned

After committing adultery with Bathsheba and having her husband Uriah killed, David’s conscience was troubled, and he realized the gravity of his sins. David’s response was a prayer of repentance, which is recorded in Psalm 51.

Lessons from David’s Prayer

  • The importance of acknowledging and confessing sin: David’s prayer shows the importance of acknowledging and confessing sin to God. This is a crucial step in the process of repentance and forgiveness.
  • The power of mercy: David’s prayer highlights the power of God’s mercy and forgiveness. Despite his grave sins, David was able to find forgiveness and restoration through his prayer.
  • The need for cleansing and renewal: David’s prayer also shows the need for cleansing and renewal in the life of a believer. This can be seen in his request for a clean heart and a renewed spirit.

The Proof of God’s Mercy from The Bible

I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. 18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me19 But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

“Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.” Psalms 66:17-20 KJV

A Prayer for The Afflicted

“(A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD.) Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.”

2   Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. 3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.  4 My heart is smitten and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread. Psalms 102:1-4 KJV

The Prayer of Faith Shall Save The Sick


12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. 13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? 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:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. James 5: 12-18

God’s Promises

The Father, God, and The Son Jesus work together in one. His promises are true and His love for all humans is real and there is NO regard for status. He loves everyone the same.

When we go to Him in sincerity and have faith, He will answer us according to His will. As we have said, His will and His ways do not always match ours. Even when someone is desperately ill. Yes, it is human to pray for the healing of illnesses that cause death.

It is human to pray for the burdens that vex our souls. It is also human to pray for our financial health, our children’s salvation, and all things which we have no control over. Healing is needed in many aspects of life, and without the Lord’s mercy and love, we are consumed and heartbroken.

With prayer, all things are possible, when we believe. However, we must still trust God to know what is best. It isn’t always easy to do that but that is how we must pray.

A Humble and Moving Prayer

Father in Heaven,

I come to you feeling overwhelmed and needing your mercy and grace for things I have no control over. I am desirous of your wisdom as you know more than I how to conquer all things. I am weak, wretched, and worn, but I know you can heal all things.

Dear Lord my mind goes to this scripture – “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever” Psalms 23

Father, your healing and mercy is my hope of life. Without you, we perish and are destroyed, but with you, all things are possible when we believe with our whole hearts.

Forgive my trespasses as I forgive those who have trespassed against me. Lead me not into temptation, deliver me from evil. Help me to abide by your commandments, casting all my cares upon you. Amen
