6 Powerful Prayers For Cancer Patients

Prayer for Healing of Cancer

If you have found this article because you are searching for support and help, please comment below and I will gladly pray for you!  It seems that we all know someone who has cancer or is in remission.

Or, maybe even you have gone through the struggle and uncertainties of this disease.  While we may never understand why God allows some of us to get cancer, we all can know for certain that God is sovereign and that He loves us through all of the storms in this life.

  Here are 6 prayers that you can pray if you are hurting from this disease somehow.


Dear Lord,

I know that You allow all trials to come upon us and I don’t asking this question to You, but why have You allowed me to get cancer?  I love You and I know You have a plan for me.  I am so down right now and I need You so badly to comfort me.

  Please, Lord, I don’t want to leave this world yet!  My babies are so young and my wife, I love her so much!  Please, Father, show me what You want me to learn from this.  I pray that You will heal me 100% from this disease.  May Your will be done in this.

  I love You!  Amen

The Unknown

Heavenly Father,

My dad, is he going to make it through this?  I am scared, Lord!  I don’t know how to deal with life without him here and I am not sure if his faith in You is even real.

  It saddens me to think he may not be in Heaven when he leaves this earth.  Please, Lord, give me Your peace in this crazy time and allow me some time to talk with him about Jesus.  I ask that You would heal him, Lord.

  I love him so much.  May Your will be done.  I love You!  Amen

I will praise You in the storm.

Getting Better?

O Lord,

The doctors say I am getting better!  I am so happy and excited!  This is all because of You!  You are the one who has given my doctors the intelligence and equipment to battle this disease.

  Father, I pray that You would put my cancer into remission for good!  I don’t want any part of it!  Father, use this miracle to show this tiny part of earth that You are real!  I will praise Your name and tell everyone I can, here, about the saving blood of Your Son!  I love You, Father!  Amen

It Is Finished


It feels I’m dying inside.  My husband, he’s gone.  Lord, I will never understand this.  We are so young; he was only 32 and our children are heartbroken.  Lord, I am lost.  I have no idea how to handle life now.  I miss him so much.  I miss holding his hand.  I miss his laugh and his embrace.

  I miss seeing him throw our 2 year old up in the air.  I miss the giggles of our kids as he tickled their tummies.  I can’t do this, Lord!  I want him back so badly.  Please give me strength for my kids.  They need me, but I need a shoulder to cry on too…I’m lost.  I wish this was only a bad dream.

  I just want to wake up from this nightmare!  Father, help me!  I’m dying inside!  Amen

The News


I just got the news about grandma.  Lord, I don’t know what Your plan is for her, but I am certain that she will have a room in Your house in Heaven.  I don’t know what to pray.  I love her.

  My selfish side wants her to live, but she is very old.  Her pain is great, Lord.  I pray that You would end her pain, Father, whether it be through healing her or meeting her in Heaven.

  I pray that Your will be done in this!  I love You!  Amen

I Will Praise You In This Storm

Dear Lord,

I am caught in a whirlwind of emotions.  I never thought I would get cancer.  Satan wants to suck the joy right me and right now he has for the moment.  I am so discouraged.  Lord, I trust in You no matter what happens and I need You to walk with me through this!  Lord, I thank You for music and the peace it brings me.

  “I will praise You in this storm, and I will lift my hands!  For You are who You are, no matter where I am!  And every tear I’ve cried, You hold in Your hands.  You never left my side and though my heart is torn I will praise You in this storm!” (I Will Praise You In This Storm, Casting Crowns) Lord, I give this all to You.

  I trust in You and I love You!  Amen


Cancer affects so many people and we will never know why until we see Jesus face to face in Glory.  Please, leave a comment below if you need prayer.  I will pray for you in this very dark storm of life.  God is good all of the time and no matter the outcome, His glory can be proclaimed.  May God bless you as you continue to live a life worthy of the calling!

A Prayer for Cancer Patients

Prayer for Healing of Cancer

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2013. I've thought about cancer every single day since my diagnosis. Thinking about something as scary and deadly as cancer every day is exhausting, to say the least. This is my life. Perhaps other cancer survivors don't think about cancer every day but rest assured they think about cancer more often than not.

Cancer, its side-effects, impact on your life, and the chance of recurrence, can dominate your thoughts, distracting you from living the abundant life Christ came to give you. And cancer doesn’t bring good thoughts. Cancer brings negative, intimidating thoughts whose purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. What’s a cancer patient or survivor to do?

You are not in this cancer walk alone. The Comforter carries you, gently reminding you that you are triumphant in Christ. And so, when you are tempted to fret because of cancer and its ugly thoughts, you can approach the throne of grace boldly where you will find mercy and grace in your time of need.

 A Prayer for Cancer Patients: 


We come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ, interceding for all those facing a cancer diagnosis. Your children are being attacked not only with this infirmity but with thoughts that fill them with fear and dread.

And yet, I know Your word says You did not give us the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind. Lord, we cast these thoughts and cares aside and choose to think on Your goodness and mercy.

We choose to think on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report; things with virtue and praise. We choose to think about You. You keep your children in perfect peace when they keep their minds stayed on You. Help your children set their minds and affections on things above, not on their cancer diagnoses.

Guard their hearts with all diligence. Don’t let these thoughts move them from Your presence. Father, You are holy and just. And You love them unconditionally. Thank You for being here for your children in their time of need. Thank You for sending Your Son so they can have eternal life.

Lord, I pray for continued strength to endure. I believe that even this cancer diagnosis will work together for their good. Father, bless their families. Strengthen them. I know it isn’t easy watching a loved one endure a cancer diagnosis. Renew their minds and encourage them. Reassure them that they are in the palm of Your hand.

Father bless all their doctors. Give them the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to treat these illnesses. Be glorified through their lives. Use them as You will. Use them as an instrument of praise. Use them as an instrument of worship. Use them as a testament of Your goodness, grace, and mercy. Use them to impart hope and faith in others.

We trust You, even in the midst of this trial. Be glorified, Father. Lord, I rebuke the spirit of fear. Through Your strength, your children will not allow fear to take control of their minds or spirits.

They have the victory over cancer through Christ Jesus. Help them to always be a light. Let others look at them and see Christ, not suffering. Let others look at them and see hope and health, not death.

Father, You are the God of all comfort. Use them to comfort others with the comfort You supply. 

Thank you, Lord, for everything You do for your children. Thank You for loving, protecting, and healing us. Thank You for being our great physician. Never take Your presence from us. We need it in life and death.

In Jesus’s name,


Scripture to Encourage and Comfort Cancer Patients:

The Bible is full of verses of comfort, strength, faith, and hope. Here are a few I used in the prayer:

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.” 2 Corinthians 10:3

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, an that they might have it more abundantly.” 1 John 10:10

“And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever…I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:16,18

I recommend finding those scriptures that fill you with hope, writing them on index cards, and carrying them with you. They will be a source of comfort as you navigate life as a cancer survivor.

Christ did not leave us without a Comforter. The Comforter comes alongside us to help us, to console us, to intercede for us. He’s our advocate. The Comforter speaking through the Scriptures reminds us that God is with us and that He has promised never to leave us nor forsake us.

“I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread,” (Psalm 37:25).

God bless you.

Don't forget to praise God

as your symptoms diminish!

Psalm 103

tells us many things about God including:

He heals me.

Psalm 103:3 TLB

~ ~ ~

Who healeth all thy diseases.

Psalm 103:3 KJV

There is POWER in

speaking out Scripture!


There is POWER 

in the name of Jesus!

There is POWER 

in the blood of Jesus!

The WORD of God

The NAME of Jesus

The BLOOD of Jesus

God gave us three weapons to add to prayer

to fight sickness, disease, malfunction, and

every other attack on our body.

They are:

The WORD of God

The NAME of Jesus

The BLOOD of Jesus

* At various times on this page, we have used the power of the WORD of God in prayer.

* We have also used the power of the NAME of Jesus

by using phrases «In Jesus' Name.»

For example, the blue prayer on this page ends with

«In Jesus' mighty name I pray, Amen»

* We have also used the blood of Jesus
when we talk of the power of the «stripes of Jesus.»

Below is a prayer that uses

all three of these.

It is written for

friends and loved ones

to pray.

Nevertheless, for those who have cancer,
I encourage you to adapt it to yourself.

God gives us power.

Let's use it!

Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.

10 Powerful Healing Prayers for Cancer Patients

Prayer for Healing of Cancer

April 10-14 is National Cancer Registrars Week. Are you taking care of or know any patients who are battling the big C?

Despite the advanced technology and modern treatment plans, we, as nurses, should still value the proven benefits of prayers in healing our patients. We should take care of their faith and spiritual health as much as we care for their physical and mental needs.

Here are some of the most powerful healing prayers for cancer you can share.

A Healing Petition

May God heal me, body and soul. May my pain cease, may my strength increase, may my fears be released, May blessings, love, and joy surround me. Amen.

Prayer for Easing Pain

Father, with you nothing is impossible. You are God of all flesh; we love you and we are confident that no situation is too hard for you. We come to you on behalf of this dear one seeking healing from cancer. God, Jesus Christ has fully paid the price by the stripes He took; we therefore are asking that the devourer gets off from this child of yours in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

Prayer for Healing

Father God, we humbly pray for all those who are fighting cancer. Give them the hope and courage they need each day. Comfort them in their pain and bless them with healing. Strengthen their family, friends, and caregivers. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer for Cancer Fighters

Heavenly Father, Give all cancer fighters comfort when they are in pain. Lay your healing hand on all and remove every cancer cell so that they may be healed! Amen

Prayer for Physicians and Nurses

Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon your blessed name and we pray for your merciful heart to surround these with love, strength, and courage and we ask Your hands to touch them with the power of healing.

May they be directed to the right treatment in Your blessed name as we ask You Lord to represent the physicians, nurses, and medical care aids and administer them in Your spirits. May every cancerous cell be cast out and replaced with good ones.

May every spot of this deadly cell be wiped out by Your powerful hands.

Prayer through St. Jude

God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down.

Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer, for whom this intention is offered.

May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker,” because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.

(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.

Prayer through Saint Agatha

Oh St. Agatha, who withstood the unwelcome advances from unwanted suitors, and suffered pain and torture for her devotion to Our Lord, we celebrate your faith, dignity, and martyrdom.

Protect us against rape and other violations, guard us against breast cancer and other afflictions of women, and inspire us to overcome adversity. Oh St.

Agatha, virgin and martyr, mercifully grant that we who venerate your sacrifice, may receive your intercession. Amen.

Prayer for Strength

Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns.
All I know is that Your grace is sufficient.

This day, this hour
Moment by moment
I choose to lean on You,
For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest.

I pour out my grief to You
And praise You that on one glorious day
When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered
We shall walk together again.

A Simple Prayer for Healing

Lord of Heaven,
I rest underneath your mighty wings of love.
I dwell within your gentle heart.
I know there is healing in your touch.
Through the sufferings of Christ I can ask for restoration
And trust in your goodness.
You are my Lord, my Saviour,
My healer and my friend.
I dwell within your gentle embrace.
