Prayer 1: Prayer for healing the sick

Dear Father in heaven, I enter your gates with praise and thanksgiving because you have given me life. You heal the sick and restore their health. I have read your Word and my ears have heard your sayings. I have kept your words in my heart and will not let them depart from me. So, I declare that I am healed and I have long life in the Name of Jesus. Your words in my heart are a source of life and healing to all my flesh. This sickness is now gone in the name of Jesus. The evidence of my healing is in my faith in your Word which states that I shall declare a thing and it shall be established.  I bind the spirit of infirmity, sickness, and disease indefinitely in the Name of Jesus.

The bible declares that you are with me as you were with Moses, and my natural vigor shall not leave me all the days of my life. My eyes are blessed and they see, my ears are blessed and they hear. I declare in the Name of Jesus that no evil shall befall me and no plague shall come near my dwelling place because you have given angels charge over me to keep me in all my ways according to Psalm 91. Healing, life, and health are in my pathway. I declare Psalm 53 on my life which states that Jesus took all my infirmities and bore my sickness for me, by His stripes I am completely healed. I reject sickness from my body, sickness shall not have charge over my body in the Name of Jesus. The life of God flows within every cell of my body bringing healing to my entire body. I am healed from the curse of sickness because Christ became a curse for me as your word declares that cursed is anyone who hangs upon a tree.

The Blood of Jesus covers and protects me.  It flows to every cell of my body, restoring life and health. My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost and no disease shall overtake me. I  pray for the release of the right chemicals and hormones in my body. My body is in perfect chemical balance and I am healed. My pancreas secretes the right amount of insulin for life and health. Every cancer (name your illness) and abnormal cell is uprooted from my body now and replaced by cells perfected by the Spirit of God. Even though there is no physical evidence, I believe that I am healed by faith and not by sight and I shall continue to trust in God.

Thank you Lord for hearing me in Jesus’ Mighty Name I pray and believe Amen.

My Father in heaven, you are Lord God Almighty and there is nothing impossible with you. You invite all who are heavily burdened to come to you and to get rest.

Touch my soul with Your compassion for others; touch my heart with Your courage and infinite Love for all; touch my mind with Your Wisdom, and may my mouth always proclaim Your praise. Teach me to reach out to You in all my needs, and help me to lead others to You by my example.
