Lord, I come before you today in need of your healing hand.
In you all things are possible. Hold my heart within yours, and renew my mind, body, and soul.
I am lost, but I come to you with grace.
You gave us life, and you also give us the gift ofinfinite joy. Give me the strength to move forward on the path you’ve laid out for me.Guide me towards better health, and give me the wisdom to identify those you’ve placed
around me to help me get better.
In your name I pray, Amen.
Think, o God, of our friend who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard.Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit
that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will.
We therefore pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew his strength,
and heal what ails him in Your loving name.
Thank You, Lord.
All our times are in Thy hand.All diseases come at Thy call, and go at Thy bidding.Thou redeemest our life from destruction, and crownest us with loving kindness and tender mercies.We bless Thee, that Thou hast heard prayer, and commanded deliverances for our friend and
Thy servant, who has been under Thine afflicting hand.
He (or she) was brought low, but Thou hast helped him (her).
May he (she) not only live, but declare the works of the Lord!
As Thou hast delivered his eyes from tears, his feet from falling, and his soul from death,may he daily inquire:What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits towards me,and
resolve to offer unto Thee the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and to call upon the name of the Lord.
May we ever remember that recovery is only a reprieve andthat some day we will go to our rest in the Lord.
May we therefore secure the righteous path and live with eternity ever in our view.Dear Lord, You are the Just judge, Holy and True. You are the Most High God. You give us life.
You hold all power in your hands.
You are the Mighty one from God who carries the world, and is ruler over all the earth.You Oh Most Blessed One are the giver of life. In you are only good things.In you is mercy and love. In you is healing of the nations.
In you is freedom of worry and freedom of pain.
Lord Almighty, You loved us so much. You were sent from your Father,sent to save us from destruction. We truly can never make it to Heaven without the help of Jesus the Son,
who was sent to earth to help us.
You, Lord are full of mercy and grace, please forgive us for our faults.Lord Jesus, in you all healing is performed. You Lord are the miracle worker.In your Spirit, your gift of healing is alive. In you Lord we can put our trust that you can heal us,
and protect us from the enemy, and death of our soul.

Lord, Your scripture says that you heal all diseases and whoever believes in You will not perish but have an everlasting life. Strengthen me, Lord, in this time of illness. Sustain him as he lays sick in his bed. When You were on Earth, you did all things good and healed all kinds of sickness.
You healed those who had diseases. You died and rose for our sins and that we may have eternal life, Lord. I believe in my heart that You are here with us today and that with Your most holy power will remove all sicknesses and evils that roam the earth. Let it be done in Your glory, Lord.

You stand as my lighthouse giving me hope. I pray Lord that you will heal me soon.
In Jesus name, Amen.
Dear Lord, Guide my doctor’s hands and give him wisdom.
Show him the way and help him to heal me.
I put my faith in you and the medical professionals that you have brought to me.
Almighty Father, Thank you for your love, grace and mercy. I pray that my discomforts will turn to comforts, my pains to gains, my deprivation to more blessings, my losses to profits, my tear to smiles, my sorrows to pleasures, my illness to wellness, my debts to credits and my dreams to realities.As the scripture said “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” And he “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
I trust in you Lord and in you alone to heal me with any form of skepticism towards blessing that you will be employed upon me. I trust, Lord, that this agony and suffering that is only in my head, will come to end and positivism will shine upon me as I read, hear, study and preach the truth in the Bible.
What does the Bible say about healing?
“Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he binds up; he shatters, but his hands heal.”[Job 5:17-18]
“And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospelof the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.”[MATTHEW 4:23]
“And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spoke unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.”[LUKE 9:11]
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another that you may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous man is effective and has great strength.”[JAS 5:16]

Orthodox Healing After Abortion
Abortion ended the life of my innocent baby and nearly destroyed my life as well.
The world tells us abortion is a choice we have a right to make. It isn’t. It is the murder of a unique human being created by God, who, at the time of conception, is complete with a body and soul.
Last year I began the healing of my soul through repentance, confession, and baptism in the Holy Orthodox Church. The powerful words of this Akathist have helped me to more fully express my grief and repentance to God. It is a prayer that I will say for the rest of my earthly life.
While I still have many tears for the loss of my innocent child, my tears remind me that I am loved by an all-compassionate and merciful God whose love for us is beyond our comprehension. The time to repent for our sins is in this lifetime. There is no repentance after we die; we must reconcile ourselves to God now.
This website is offered to the millions of women around the world who have had an abortion, and those men and other family members who may have encouraged it, as well as for those doctors and attendants involved in the abortion industry. It is for all who want to heal their precious souls and return to their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Avail yourself of the healing words of this powerful Akathist of Repentance for One Who Has Aborted a Child presented with a blessing from St. Paisius Orthodox Monastery, Safford, Arizona.
May God bless you with healing and peace as you return to Him.
O Lamb of God Who takest away the sins of the world, hear my groaning and attend to the sorrows of my heart; take away my heavy burden of sin, O Thou who hast borne our infirmities; receive me who fall down before Thee in repentance, praying and crying out from the depth of my soul: O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
O God and Lord! The creation is Thine, but woe to me: The sin committed by Adam in paradise lives in me and in my body, and a slave am I always fervently serving it, but now I entreat Thee:
Have mercy on me, O Creator of the world above.Have mercy on me, O Maker of the world below.Have mercy on me, O Master of the Heavenly Powers.Have mercy on me, O Ruler of bodily creatures.Have mercy on me, O Provider of all things.Have mercy on me who bring Thee my tears for my sins.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
O All-merciful Master, how can I, such an abominable sinner, dare to come to Thee with my prayer, after having broken Thy commandment which Thou gavest me through Thy prophet Moses: Thou shalt not kill.
But I am a murderer, and alas a hundred times more cruel than even the serpent which at least allows its offspring to see the light for a short while before devouring them.
But I, the wretched one, have mercilessly deprived my children not only of the physical light but even more of the true Light, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who grants illumination through the Mystery of Baptism; and, to avoid having many children for the sake of temporal bodily rest, I slew them while they were still in my womb. Wherefore, darkened by these and and countless other sins, I hope only in the mercy of Thy compassion and with boldness cry to Thee: Alleluia.
I have disdained Thy words of life, O Lord, and have walked according to the desires of mine own heart from my youth up to this very day, but now in repentance I cry to Thee, O mine All-compassionate Saviour:
Have mercy on me who was conceived in iniquities.Have mercy on me who was born in sins.Have mercy on me who have not kept Thy commandments.Have mercy on me who have been deprived of Thy grace.Have mercy on me who take no care for my salvation.Have mercy on me who am caught in the net of the passions.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.Good and beautiful it is for brethren to dwell together in unity and to love one another, as Thou didst command us, O our Saviour, for he who is angry with his brother is a murderer.
But I in my wrath have surpassed all those ever born on earth, even murderers whose victims of different ages and times were slain for various reasons; because I, the wretched one, deprived of life those who had only just received their time of life from Thee, the Giver of Life, and in my madness mercilessly took away their life while they were still in my womb, with no fear of God, and rejecting Thy will and the gift of childbearing blessed by Thee. I willfully pulled Thy creating hands my innocent children and was not ashamed to slay them before Thine eyes. But their lot is in Thy right Hand, O Lord, and my sin is ever before me. To Thee alone do I repent, and I pray Thee, O Good One, direct my steps on the path of penitence, so that with all repentant sinners I may sing to Thee: Alleluia.
Thou who alone knowest human frailty knowest also all my sinful falls. Remember not the sins of my youth, and cleanse me from my secret sins as I cry to Thee:
Have mercy on me, a great sinner.Have mercy on me, a transgressor of God’s law.Have mercy on me, a violator of Thy testament.Have mercy on me who come to Thee in repentance at the eleventh hour.Have mercy on me, the wretched slayer of children.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
O Giver of Life, Heavenly King, come and abide in me who am defiled by sins, and cleanse me from every impurity, and save my soul, O Good One, so that being saved I may cry to Thee: Alleluia.
I have gone astray a sheep that is lost; O my God, seek me Thy servant, who from Thy commandments have gone astray into the impassable thicket of passions and self-will. Save me, the unworthy one, for lamenting I pray to Thee fervently and cry out:
Have mercy on me who am heavy laden with self-willed sins.Have mercy on me who am darkened by passions.Have mercy on me who am carried away with pride.Have mercy on me who am consumed by envy.Have mercy on me who am filled with unrighteousness.Have mercy on me, O Thou who desirest not the death of the sinner.Have mercy on me, the intentional murderer of my children.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
Wheresoever Thou wishest, O my Almighty God, there the order of nature is overcome; conquer the sinful nature which lives in me and its power which drags me toward sin, for Thou art the Creator of all things and the Fashioner of nature. By Thy Divine grace renew a right spirit within me, cast me not away from Thy face, and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
Wipe away the deadly stamp of child-slayer which was deservedly placed upon my soul, placed by Thy just judgement in accordance with the sixth commandment of Thy law: Thou shalt not kill.
Restore Thine eternal covenant to us, O Lord, which I have broken by my sins, and return my former virtues which were lost through sin, so that without hindrance I may cry out to Thee: Alleluia.
Who has ever sinned as I the wretched one? What sin have I not committed? What evil has not been imagined in my soul? But with a penitent heart and tears I come to Thee, O All-compassionate Lord, crying out:
Have mercy on me Thine unfaithful servant.Have mercy on me who am hardened in sins.Have mercy on me who hate my neighbor.Have mercy on me who offend in word and deed.Have mercy on me who am defiled in soul and body.Have mercy on me for my conscience is burned up.Have mercy on me, a child-slayer Herod.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.
With the rays of Thy grace, O Lord, illumine the vesture of my soul, O Giver of Light, and save me so that rejoicing I may sing to Thee: Alleluia.
Great is the multitude of my transgressions, O Christ, and all my life is a dark and gloomy night. But despairing not of Thy compassion, O my Saviour, David I cry to Thee:
Have mercy on me who have wasted all my life in laziness.Have mercy on me who am negligent in prayer for my sins.Have mercy on me who am ungrateful for Thy good inspirations to repent.Have mercy on me who have not honored Thy law nor kept Thy commandments.
Have mercy on me, for I have loved the world and that which is of the world.Have mercy on me, for I have spent the days of my life in worldly vanity.Have mercy on me, who following the laws of this age and disdaining the childbearing blessed by Thee, have committed child-murder.
O Lord, my Lord, my joy, have mercy on me who am fallen.

Below are ten healing prayers, an interview with Max Lucado explaining how we should pray for healing, and some of our favorite Bible verses on healing.
God tells us that through prayer, He can speak to us and use us to work miracles for His glory. When you use this prayer for healing you are coming to God completely surrendered and expectant to let His Holy Spirit work in and through you. I pray that you will find miraculous healing as you seek God's plan for your life – His plan to prosper you and to give you a hope and future!
1. A Prayer for Personal Healing
God, you know me so well. You created me. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize them. You've told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the number of years I'll live and serve you on earth.
I'm coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There's so much I don't understand about life. But I do know that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my sins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.
I don't always know what your will is Lord, especially in times now, when I desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for my health.
I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire of my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you—and okay with me.
If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.
I absolutely believe you have the power to heal. You demonstrated that on earth, and you still heal in miraculous ways today.
Even when my faith is weak, you say it is enough, and my love for you is strong. And I know you already hold my heart and life in your hands. It's up to you.If I can bring you more glory through healing, then that's what I ask for. That's what I desire.
But if your answer is no, or not now, I know that your grace is sufficient for me. Ultimately, I want your will to be my will. I look forward to spending an eternity with you.
But Lord, if you have planned still more for me to do here on this earth, I not only need and want your physical healing, Lord, but a thorough, deep-down cleansing and strengthening—a whole-hearted renewal of all that I am. Because all that I am is yours.
Use this trial to strengthen me from a “what-if” faith to a “no-matter-what” faith. And no matter what, I choose to honor you and give you glory. In Jesus's name, Amen. ~ Rebecca Barlow Jordan
2. A Short Prayer for Healing for Friends
Lord, your Word speaks promises of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over my friend.
I believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the life of my friend. Please reach down and surround my friend with supernatural peace and strength and give her the faith to believe that all things are possible for you.
Protect her from Satan's lies and discouragement and let her miraculous healing begin. Amen.
3. A Prayer for Healing and Grace
We confess our need for you today. We need your healing and your grace. We need hope restored. We need to be reminded that you work on behalf of those you love, constantly, powerfully, completely. Forgive us for trying to fix our situations all on our own.
Forgive us for running all different directions and spinning our wheels to find help, when true help and healing must be found first in You. Forgive us for forgetting how much we need you, above everyone and everything else. We come to you and bring you the places we are hurting.
You see where no one else is able to fully see or understand. You know the pain we've carried. The burdens. The cares. You know where we need to be set free. We ask for your healing and grace to cover every broken place. Every wound. Every heartache.
Thank you that you are Able to do far more than we could ever imagine. Thank you for your Mighty Power that acts on behalf of your children. We reach out to you, and know that you are restoring and redeeming every place of difficulty, every battle, for your greater glory.
Thank you that you will never waste our pain and suffering. We love you. We need you today. In Jesus' Name, Amen ~ Debbie McDaniel
4. A Prayer for Healing Sick Family and Friends
Lord Jesus, thank you that you love [name of person who needs healing]. I know that you hate what their illness is doing to them/me. I ask that you would heal this disease, that you would have compassion and bring healing from all sickness.
Your word says in Psalm 107:19-20 that when we call out to you the Eternal one you will give the order, heal and rescue us from certain death.
In the Bible, I have read of miraculous healing and I believe that you still heal the same way today.I believe that there is no illness you cannot heal after all the bible tells of you raising people from the dead so I ask for your healing in this situation.
I also know from my experience of life on earth that not everyone is healed. If that happens here than keep my heart soft towards you, help me to understand your plan and help me to be excited about heaven.
God, I thank you that [name of person who needs healing] belongs to you and that you are in control of everything that happens from our first breath to our last sigh. Amen. ~ Wendy van Eyck

Dear God, We feel wounded, betrayed, and brokenhearted. We wonder sometimes if we can ever fully recover from the deep hurt we feel inside. Thank you that you know what we’ve been through and the struggles we still carry. Help us to forgive.
Help us to let go. We know that we can move forward with you in peace and freedom. We pray for those who have hurt us right now, and ask for your power to work mightily within their lives.
We leave them in your hands and find our comfort and strength in your spirit.
Thank you that you understand all that we’ve faced, that you see and you care. We ask that when the enemy taunts us with lies and tries to bring up the hurt of the past, you would silence his voice and allow us to walk free.
We bring you all the stuff that he would use to try to trap us or stop us – the pain, the past, the mistakes, the struggles. And we lay it at your feet, again. Thank you for your healing, for your grace, for your hope. Thank you that you have set us free and will not waste the pain that we’ve carried.
We look forward to the greater good and purpose you will bring through this struggle.
We love you Lord, we need you, we trust you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Debbie McDaniel

1Prayer For Guidance

I asked Him to send treasures of a far more lasting kind! I asked that He’d be near you at the start of each new day; to grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way. I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care I prayed for most of all!

Please pray that at the doctor’s appointment today, my son finds out what is still causing him the extreme pain even after 3 back surgeries and a fusion. The constant pain for the last year is taking such a toll on him spiritually, emotionally, and financially.
The financial issue, or so his “mom” keeps telling him is just material things and can be rearranged and worked on by small baby steps… the other dealing with the pain and what that is doing to him is what needs to be addressed and healed.
And I believe with all of my being that the Heavenly Father, his Divine Healing Son Jesus, and the Blessed Mother Mary will come to his aid, reach down a loving healing hand and help my son heal completely and take away the pain he has been in for well over a year. I ask you to please, please pray along with me. Amen.I promise to return your compassion and caring by holding and praying each of your names and families., Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
