On this page you’ll find inspirational quotes and prayers to read when you’re not feeling well and sick. From healing quotes from the bible to getting strength and overcoming being ill. Read these prayers out loud or in silence and get well soon!
Being sick is one of the most testing times for both yourself and for your connection with God. And the state, as it differs in degree from one individual to the other is usually troubling.
Nonetheless, what if we told you that, whether small, medium, and even large, God is essentially the key to all of our problems. We are not sugar-coating His position in our lives simply because, generations have sowed in His holy abode, and protection He has given us, His sons and daughters.
Therefore, recognition of His power and consequentially the fact that your state of weakness should be minor to you is one relief that you deserve to know and acknowledge.
“Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” – Jeremiah’s 17:14
Prayer for the Sick Person
As You are the One, and we, Your servants, we pray Oh God above to heal and support “Name”. Destroy any sickness that is, was, and will ever be in his/her body In Jesus Name.
We pray that thereafter, You rejuvenate his/her mind, body, and soul, that he/she may be granted the strength to function in all areas of his/her life.
“Name” shall stand before You Oh Lord, and he/she will pray and raise his or her voice in thanks to You.
We glorify Your mighty deeds Oh Lord, and In Jesus Name, Amen.
Short Prayer for the Sick
Heavenly Lord, we need Your divine intervention in our lives. We need You to empower our bodies with Your holy presence, and Your arms envelop our minds to soothe this pain.
We shall not buckle under the strain and when it’s a new day, our healed body will be a representation of Your power. Thank You, Your holiness for such attention to our lives, and In Christ’s name, Amen.
Effective Prayer for the Sick
Father in Heaven, we pray to You today, with our heart heavy with concern for “Name”. He/she is sick and we want no reason for it to escalate. Hence we pray that You attack the sickness at its roots, and cleanse, with Your holy blood, all manner of remains in “Name’s” body.
We thank You for cutting away the ailment and also for the protection You now offer. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
Prayer for the Sick Friend
Almighty Father, “Name” is sick and I’m of the belief that if I was in his/her position, he/she will be beside me and watching over. He/she has been part of Your faithful and we believe this is just a test of faith.
so, I pray that You watch over him/her and grant a speedy recovery. Not one more moment, Oh Lord, will he/she use further in this state, where he/she can’t rejoice in Your name. I thank You for the answered prayer, and In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
Prayer for the Sick Child
Father, today, we have a special prayer to submit to You. We pray for Your son/daughter today in regard to his/her sickness, and also because of our fear. Lord, we want You to perform a miracle You did for.
This is our little one, and his/her presence in our lives is Your gift to us. So, God above, we pray that he/she becomes a living miracle of Your eternal promise to us. We also pray that You safeguard Your child and walk with him/her through every experience in life. Thank You for the grace to pray, the answered prayers, and the ever-present protection, Amen
Prayers for the Sick and Dying
Heavenly Lord, we stand today in Your grace and everlasting mercy. It is only by Your solid will that we’re here today to have this prayer and by Your grace, we come knocking with the rest of mind that you’ll answer us.
Oh Lord, we pray in the stead of the sick and dying, that You be with them for all eternity. Turn Your sight, not from their souls, and take their hands in Yours as a father would, his sons and daughters. God, in Your abode, nurture their souls for all eternity and be with all their goals in life.
We thank You for safeguarding them in this world and continuing to do so in the next. Thank You for listening to our prayer—Amen.

“We are the spirit children of a Heavenly Father. He loved us and He taught us before we were born into this world. He told us that He wished to give us all that He had.

7 Prayers for Healing
There is no doubt that the Bible is filled with accounts of Jesus’ healing miracles. When we look at the healing ministry of Jesus, we recognize the vital connection we have with it – We are His body on earth today. If you look at any of Jesus’ healing miracles, it will reveal facts about how He healed and whom He healed.
Jesus did this by the Word and through the faith of those who desired His healing including the sick, those who had demons and those who were desperate and persistent. There are many questions that come up related to the ministries of healing.
These questions often include does God heal everyone, why are some people not healed and whose faith is necessary for healing? While we don’t have all the answers, Scripture tells us to turn to prayer.
The Bible says, “Is anyone among you sick? 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” (James 5:14). We also know from Scripture that we can find healing through speaking the Word to our sickness.
The Bible tells us, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says” (Mark 11:23).
It’s important that we note carefully from the previous verse that we must say clearly his need. This word must be spoken confidently. If you or someone you know if facing a difficult illness or disease, it can be hard to know where to turn. Many of us want to cry out to God, but don’t know exactly what to pray.
If you feel alone or afraid about the future and want to unleash God’s healing power in your life, lift up these prayers for healing:
Prayer for a Sick Person
During His earthly ministry, Jesus said many prayers for healing, miraculously causing the sick to recover. Today, Jesus continues to pour out His healing balm.
Is there someone who needs God’s healing touch? Do you wish to say a prayer for a sick friend or family member? We can lift these concerns up to the Great Physician, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you or someone you know is sick, turn to this prayer:
Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the Sick, I turn to You in this time of illness.Dearest Comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. We place our worries in Your hands.
We ask that You restore Your servant to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy will and know that whatever You do, You do for the love of us. Amen.
Prayer of Surrender
Surrendering your life to God means following His lead without knowing where He’s sending you.
You know you’ve surrendered to God when you rely on Him to work things out instead of trying to manipulate others, force your agenda or control a situation. It’s important that you let go and let God work.
You don’t always have to be in charge or in control. Instead of trying harder, you trust more. If you are looking to surrender your life now to God, turn to this prayer:
Dear Lord, it is my will to surrender to you everything that I am and everything that I’m striving to be. I open the deepest recesses of my heart and invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell inside of me. I offer you my life, heart, mind, body, soul and spirit.
I surrender to you my past, present and future problems. I ask You to take hold over every aspect of my life. I surrender to You all my hurt, pain, worry, doubt, fear and anxiety, and I ask You to wash me clean. I release everything into Your compassionate care.
Please speak to me clearly, Lord. Open my ears to hear Your voice. Open my heart to commune with You more deeply. I want to feel Your loving embrace. Open the doors that need to be opened and close the doors that need to be closed.
Please set my feet upon the straight and narrow road that leads to everlasting life. Amen.
Prayer to Renew Mind, Body and Spirit
What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning as you go about your day? Every moment of every day you have the freedom to think about whatever you want. What you think about is the most important factor in how you feel and what you say and do.
Your thinking determines the person you become. Real, lasting change is always an inside our process that begins with our mind, goes down into our heart and body and then goes outward into our behavior and relationships.
If you are looking for your mind, body and spirit to be renewed, turn to this prayer:Dear 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 of infinite 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. Amen.

Prayer for Healing – How to create your own prayer for healing
Sometimes life can get you down and you may be in search of healing either of the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. It can be tricky to decide how best to word a prayer for healing in order to get the attention of higher beings.
Angels are always watching but sometimes they need you to take the first steps to your own recovery before they assist you. In this article we will explore some of the best ways to structure your prayers for healing. We’ll also look at some examples.
While a healing prayer and a prayer for recovery are often seen as being the same thing, a prayer for the sick can be seen as something slightly different.
Original Healing Prayers
The reason that this article doesn’t just contain a list of different healing prayers is quite simple: originality is always better. Copying a prayer written by someone else can be useful. However, it’s always better to show your own determination and ability by using an original prayer.
So while this article will cover some examples of prayers for healing, these should be adapted for your own purposes. Imagine that somebody was writing you a letter asking for your help.
Would you be more inclined to help them if they’d copied it word for word from someone else or if they wrote something original?
Where to Begin
One of the best places to start before beginning your prayer for healing is with a pen and a piece of paper. Make some basic notes about what you want your prayer to cover. For example, if your healing prayer is for yourself or for someone else you should specify this in your notes.
Think about some of the specifics: what sort of healing is required? Do they need help in recovering from a physical injury? Perhaps they need help overcoming a traumatic event? Maybe this person has been struggling to process certain emotions and requires help with that? Of course there is also spiritual healing such as when someone loses faith or strays from their moral path.
Whatever the case may be, make a note of it and the more details you can provide the better. Any prayer for healing should be concise but still explain what sort of help or guidance is required. Show the angels or God or whoever it is you are praying to that you will put in the necessary work to get their attention.
The next stage is to consider what the end goal of this prayer is. What is the best case outcome for you or the person that this prayer for healing is for? If you’ve broken a leg and want to be able to walk again as soon as possible, make a note of that.
Similarly, if someone you know is perhaps struggling with extreme anxiety and you want to see them functioning within society again, write that down.
Creating your Prayer for Healing
We’ll now take a quick look at an example of a prayer for healing. Healing prayers don’t need to be flashy or witty.
They simply need to send a clear message to whomever it is you are praying. Imagine that you are praying for your friend Michael who has suffered through some mental health problems.
A prayer for recovery may go something this:
Dear angels, I ask that you focus your attention away from me in order to help my friend Michael. I believe that he requires your angelic guidance and aid far more than I. He is a good man who has suffered through mental health problems that would drive most into the ground.He pushes through but is still in need of help fully recovering. It is my belief that with your assistance and the support of those closest to him, he can make a full recovery and reintegrate with not only those around him such as friends and family, but also with society.
I thank you in advance for any and all support you may provide. Amen!
Prayers for the Sick
You may be wondering what the difference (if any) is between prayers for healing and prayers for the sick. The truth is that for many, there may not be considered to be a difference at all.
However, while healing prayers or a prayer for recovery could show an emphasis on overcoming some sort of battle or wall, a prayer for the sick could be slightly different.
A prayer for the sick could be seen as a more general sort of prayer, such as a serenity prayer for all those suffering from cancer or malaria.
Does it Work?
You may be wondering if the effect is lessened at all by praying “in bulk” as opposed to for a specific person. The way you have to look at it is that many people will be praying for the relief of a sickness (such as cancer).
So while the prayer itself may seem a bit vague, you won’t be the only one hoping for the same outcome. Of course you’re still better trying to personalize the prayer as much as possible.
Obviously this is somewhat difficult when saying a prayer for a large number of people but we’ll take a look at an example.
Example of a Prayer for the Sick
Again, just remember that this is simply an example. You can use it as a template if you wish but try to look deep within yourself and find something that really drives the message home.
Dear God (or whomever it is you are praying to), I send you this prayer for the sick in the hope that you will ease their suffering. I ask that you watch over those suffering from cancer.
For those you can help, I pray that you do and for those who you can’t, I pray you reduce their pain and watch over their families as they go through this tough time.
I ask that you help guide me down a path through which I can provide the most help to those who need it. Amen!
Don’t feel under any pressure when writing or carrying out your prayer. Just make sure it is from the heart and you won’t have any problems. The only snag people sometimes hit is not knowing what to say. If you follow your heart as well as the advice within this article, you’ll excel at sending the desired message.

That was a friend of mine. His son, who recently turned 18 and is also a dear friend, has cancer. It’s aggressive. It’s cruel. It’s dodging medical treatments.
If we look at stories that of Ava Lee, a seven-year-old girl with leukemia, we might think prayer is more powerful than chemotherapy. On November 2, her mother, Esther, recorded a video of Ava asking for prayers for a clean scan so that she could move forward with a second bone marrow transplant. That little video, less than 20 seconds long, has over 160,000 views on .
When Ava’s PET scan results came back they were clear. Assuming all of those views resulted in at least a “please God” each, it seems the prayers worked. It was a joyful, thanks-be-to-God moment.
Does prayer heal?
On November 9, Ava’s page broadcasted unfortunate news. The scan was clear, but the cancer has not gone. At the time of this writing, her situation is painfully, terribly grim.
Does prayer not heal?
Humans are an intellectual group, on the whole. But I’d wager that even the most pragmatic among us, those who see or hear someone in prayer and think “what a waste of time,” are not above invoking God in their most desperate moments.
It’s easy, for those of us who are faithful, to point to that as a kind of hypocrisy. But it’s better to see that as a moment of covenant, a sacred moment of dependence on something greater than ourselves. Sincere prayer comes from that deep place where our consciousness touches the divine.
Sincere prayer needs no proofs and expects no miracles. It simply expresses need.
