God Heal Me Prayer

Dear God heal me.  Please send your miraculous power.   

May I feel your health-giving presence in every cell of my body. 

I wait expectantly as you begin your mysterious healing work that is beyond human power and understanding.    

Marshall all forces available to overcome my condition, including medical interventions, drugs and the natural healing powers you created within my own body.

God heal me with the supernatural aid of the prayers offered by my family, friends and by people I may not even know.  Wrap me in their loving prayers like a warm healing balm.

Plant hope in my heart during my hour of pain.

Grant me patience and trust when your healing comes slowly but surely.

Give me wisdom to hear your voice and to do my part in the healing process.

Show me a new vision for my life when I am well.

Teach me to thank and praise you for every small milestone and improvement. 

Enable me to learn how to accept help graciously.      

Be tangibly present during difficult treatments. 

Shield me from despair.  Love me through my doubts. 

Keep me praying in the darkness.  Bring an end to my pain.

Plant your strong healing Word in my heart.

Restore me to productivity and help me to once again walk with joy and confidence in the company of the healthy. 

I pray that you, Oh God heal me as I place myself in your strong healing hands.

Amen.     

About This God Heal Me Prayer

Physical healing is one of the most requested topics of prayer in Christian churches today. In my experience, the vast majority of these healing prayers are prayed by someone other than the sick person.  As an example, a few years back I was the head of a church telephone prayer chain where people called in specific requests for their life situations and I passed the request down a list of the prayer team.  It amazed me the number of different types of illnesses we prayed about including cancer treatments, medical tests, operations, strokes, chronic fatigue, allergies and even an accidental electrocution.

You would think that someone like me who had prayed for so many sick people would find it second nature to pray for myself when I got sick.  But that wasn’t the case.

I discovered that when I was sick and in pain praying wasn’t easy.  I found out that I was too stressed out, worried and exhausted to pray. 

After I was healthy again, I decided to write a personal prayer that I could use to pray for healing when I was in pain and having difficulty concentrating.    

I wrote the prayer in one or two line sentences so it could be prayed all the way through or one line at a time over time when a particular line held special meaning for the day’s situation.

One of the reasons that I think it’s much easier to pray for someone else to be healed than to pray for myself is because of my secret doubts.  I don’t admit to others that there’s a tug of war going on inside my head about whether I believe strongly enough or am worthy of healing. 

When you’re ill and having a hard time getting over your doubts, be assured that God is always present to hear your prayer in the redeeming moment of the present.  He meets you where you are when you pray.  He draws closer to you when you draw closer to him.  God wants you to admit your doubts and fears so he can help you with them.  Pray with confidence, knowing that God cares.    

Scripture promises to claim when you are praying “God heal me”     

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.  (Matthew 9:35 NIV)

O Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.  (Psalm 30:2 NIV)

The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from the bed of illness.  I said, “O Lord, have mercy on me; heal me, for I have sinned against you.”  (Psalm 41:3,4 NIV)

Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being praise his holy name.  Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  (Psalm 103:1-5 NIV)

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  (Isaiah 41:10 NIV) 

Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.  But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.  (Isiah 53 :4,5 NIV)

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV)
