Simple Prayer For Healing
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.

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.

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.

Prayer For Healing
I am privileged to introduce Rahi to our TSN family. Rahi was my beloved yoga teacher during my 3 months stay in India, and had guided me to bliss on many occasions.
To me, she is the embodiment of grace. The following was originally an email she had sent to me, which we edited to share with you here, along with a practical meditation that anyone can do at home.
With love, -Tina
An event such as this reminds us of the impermanent nature of our lives. It helps us remember that what's most important is to love each other, to be there for each other, and to treasure each moment we have that we are alive. This is the best that we can do for those who have died: we can live in such a way that they continue, beautifully, in us. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
When I saw the horrific scenes of the terrible earthquake and the tsunami that have devastated Japan and its people, my first response was one of deep pain.
All that my family, friends and I could talk about, and keep seeing again and again were the ongoing pain-filled visuals that every TV channel around the world was beaming into every home.
Then came the emails, postings, tweets, phone calls, etc….everyone was reaching out to every other person possible spreading the alarm and concern.
The cataclysmic events in Japan became personal because a dear student and now a fellow yoga teacher was living there. I was desperate to know that he and his family were safe.I was anxious, restless and quite tense till I heard from him. His message was so calm, thanking me for my concern and informing me not to worry, as he and his fellow countrymen will weather this storm together as a nation.
Something about his calmness rubbed off on me and gave me a window of clarity. I went to my yoga den, sat down with a prayer for healing and started tapping on the acupressure points to calm myself and to lift me this downward spiral mode of thinking and feeling.
A few minutes into the tapping and I could visibly feel a change happening within me. And it is then that it occurred to me that I can sit in meditation and ‘send’ the vibrations of healing to Japan and all life forms affected by the devastation.
When I got up I felt the urge to call -minded friends for a group meditation that evening. Six people turned up and surprisingly all were women! We sat in a circle. Each person placed their right hand—in a giving gesture (palm facing down)—onto the next person’s left hand, which by default was in the receiving gesture (palm facing up, a bowl).
We started by inhaling freely and exhaling for 12 breaths. A deep calmness started happening within us. Then we visualized our beloved Earth in the center of the circle and focused on Japan and the Pacific region.
We visualized the pain and the enormous energy needed to bounce back to a semblance of normalcy. We started humming (“hmmm”) deeply and continuously for 21 minutes, allowing the vibrations of the heart centre to open up and radiate love, peace, compassion and healing.
When the humming stopped, the image within all of us changed to seeing the earth and Japan radiating joyful life. We held that vision in our hearts for a long time, feeling that something had been transformed. Then we ended with the beautiful Sanskrit chant of ”sarve bahvantu sukhina” which translate to “may peace, may happiness prevail”.
Every one of us in that group felt a deep, soft silence as a presence in that space…it was so compassionate, nurturing and all enveloping…as if the Divine Mother was wrapping us, Japan and the whole of Earth in Her loving arms.The beauty is that, ever since that experience, whenever I continue to receive more information or visuals about the still occurring devastation, I no longer hook into the collective pain. Japan and the Earth seem to fall into my heart centre and I can feel a deep healing happening in me.
Why am I writing all this in such detail to you? I can give many reasons but the truth is I just feel impelled to do so.
Perhaps the learning is:
- Don’t add to the collective pain by talking and thinking of all that horror being flashed on our screens.
- Step aside, meditate and do your bit to raise the healing consciousness of humankind.
While help is pouring in from all corners of the world to rehabilitate the people of Japan, maybe, along with it, a different kind of help is needed to change the present vibrations.
Perhaps if a critical mass meditates, the energy generated can bring about positive changes that we cannot even conceive of?
Perhaps all this needs is to be communicated to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, so that in the coming days we can continue to maintain the healing momentum.
Prayer for Healing Through Meditation
If you felt resonated with the above story, try the following prayer for healing meditation—either as a group or as an individual in the comforts of your home.
1. Group Prayer for Healing Meditation
If you are gathered in a group of 3 or more people, sit in a circle. If you are a couple, sit across from each other. Make the ambience as soothing as possible. Optionally, you can light candles, or play soft calming music (example, sound of water flowing).
- Open your left hand, palm facing up. Place your left hand on your left knee comfortably.
- Take your right hand, palm facing down, place it, gently, on top of your neighbor’s left hand (the neighbor on your right side).
- Sit comfortably and focus on being relaxed. Close your eyes.
- Connect everyone’s breathing pattern so that they sync with the same patterns of inhale and exhale. Slowly go into deep breathing with the exhale being longer than inhale. Perhaps do this for 12 breaths so that all of you are in sync with one another.
- Visualize the earth in the center of this healing circle.
- As you inhale, feel you are taking in Cosmic energy. As you exhale, direct this energy to the earth and specifically to Japan. See the healing happening to the people and all other life forms affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
- If you can, hold this visualization for 21 minutes. If not, do it for the maximum time available and comfortable to the group.
- Place your palms together in front of your heart center in a prayer gesture (Anjali Mudra). Either say a prayer for healing that all of you know, or silently pray for deep peace and quick recovery to the Earth and to Japan.
- Give gratitude to Existence for giving you this great opportunity to be of service.
If you want, make a commitment to do this on a daily basis, as a group or on your own for the next 21 days (or how ever many days you want).
2. Individual Prayer for Healing Meditation
As an individual, you can create a space of love and healing through your own meditation. Similar to the group meditation, create a soothing and comfortable ambience where you can sit. Dim the light, and optionally, light a few candles.
- Sit quietly in a place that is calming.
- Relax both your hands. Place them naturally in whichever gesture that feels comfortable to you. For example, you can have both palms facing up, or place one hand on top of the other.
- Inhale and exhale deeply. Placing your entire focus on your breath.
- When you feel relaxed, take your awareness into the heart center (in the middle of your chest, next to your heart).
- As you inhale, visualize the cosmic energy and healing light entering your heart center. Feel your heart center opening up.
- As you exhale, direct the healing energy—light, love, compassion, and strength—to the earth, to Japan, to the Pacific region.
- Visualize yourself sitting in a circle among other healers doing the same thing. All of you sitting together in a ring, encircling the earth and sending healing to the planet.
- Hold this visualization for as long as you are comfortable. If you have a hard time visualizing, you can say the words and allow the meditation to happen.
- Finish the meditation by bringing your palms together in a prayer position, giving gratitude to Existence for choosing you to be a conduit in its service.
If you found the above meditation to be comforting and relaxing, make it a daily practice for the next 21 days (or how ever many days you would ).
The above prayer for healing meditation is not limited to the current Japan devastation. It can also be adopted to help heal other inner emotional pains you may want to alleviate.
Thank you for listening.
