8 Best Intercessory Prayers for Healing

Intercessory prayer is important for achieving real hope and intent for God to step in and heal another person’s life. Embracing the passion of Jesus and casting out your weakness before God will help you achieve the impossible. Here is a collection of some great intercessory prayers for healing.

Stretch Your Healing Hand
Father, I want to thank you for loving us so much. Thank you for the gift life. Lord, there are so many people in hospitals who are struggling with sickness and disease. Some of these people are on the verge of losing their lives, even though that is not your will for them. You have great plans for their lives, good plans, and not evil. Lord, stretch out your healing hand upon them. Remove sickness and disease from their midst and cause them to enjoy good health. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Restoration Prayer
Lord Jesus, many people are dying from killer diseases like cancer. Some of these people had faith, but they lost their will to continue living along the way. Others are still in the hospital, fighting the good fight of faith. Jesus, while you were here on earth, people would bring sick people to you, and you would lay hands on them and heal them. The word says that you never change; you’re the same yesterday, today, and forever. Lord, restore health on all those that are seeking healing from you. Destroy sickness from their bodies with your blood and cause them to enjoy good health. Thank you for answering my prayers, Amen.

Mend Broken Hearts
Dear God, please heal my friend, who is struggling with depression. Fill her heart with love and peace, and help her to know how much you love her. Mend her broken heart from all the evil that has been done to her since childhood. Uproot condemnation, shame, and bitterness from her heart and fill it with joy. Shine your light upon her life that she may see the path that you have laid out for her and walk in it. Please help her to find contentment in you alone. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Emotional Health Prayer
Heavenly Father, many people are struggling with depression today. Some have even committed suicide. Lord, give those people that are struggling with depression courage to fight against it through faith in you. Give them clarity and help them to find their purpose that they may walk in the path you laid out for them before the foundation of the world. Grant them hope when they are helpless and fill them with your light from head to toe in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Life-long Disease Prayer
O Lord, my sister, has been diagnosed with a lifelong disease, she is devastated. She has lost all hope and doesn’t see a way out. But Lord, your word says that nothing is impossible for you, for all things are possible with you. Let hope rise in her heart that she may see you as Jehova Rapha. Help her to know that no disease is bigger than you and that Jesus paid for her healing at the scourging post. Heal her body and let her testify your goodness and mercy towards her to the nations. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Inner Peace Prayer
Lord God, you say in your word that we should be anxious for nothing, but by prayer and supplication, we should present our requests to you. Our hearts are filled with anxiety, and this is affecting our health; please calm us now. Grant us inner peace and shield us from suffering. Remove fear and anxious thoughts from our minds, and give us strength in our inner being. Forgive us where we have gone wrong and shut evil doors that we have opened for the devil. May we find peace and comfort in you alone. Through Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

Healing from Past Pains Prayer
O Holy God, I honor and exalt your name. I bring my loved ones who are in pain because of past experiences in your hands. Lord Jesus, you came to set the captives free. Set your children free from past hurts and help them to move forward. Let deliverance be upon their lives and cause them to possess their possessions. Lord, let your glory fill their lives and let every chain of bondage to pain and bitterness be broken in the name of Jesus. Cover your children with your wings of healing and turn their mourning into dancing. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Divine Health Prayer
Glorious Father, I ask you to grant my family, divine health. Take away sickness from us and put none of the evil diseases that we know among us. May we prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper. Lord, my family has been plagued with disease after disease lately. Please give us our health back and heal our wounds. Cause us to walk in divine health for the rest of our lives. Father, I thank you for answering my prayers. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
