A Gospel Based Prayer for Healing

What do the Gospels and prayer have in common? I’ll give you a hint. It starts with a J, and ends with an S. If you guessed Jesus, then you know I give really easy hints.

Lately I’ve used examples from the Gospels to pray things. I felt like writing out a recent prayer of mine. You’re welcome to close your eyes and speak these words to God. I hope it lights a fire in you to use examples in the Word to pray things.

“Lord God, I bow my head before you. I ask and pray and believe and receive if you are willing, that I can be healed (Matthew 8:2). I want to receive your healing like the woman who in faith touched the hem of your Son’s garment believing it would heal her (Mark 5:28). I’m begging you like the man who begged to have the demon cast out of his son (Luke 9:38-40). You have the authority to command anything to happen just as the centurion acknowledged and had great faith (Matthew 8:8-9). If you asked what I wanted of you like your Son asked the blind men, I’d ask for healing. I know you are compassionate and willing to heal your people (Matthew 20:32-34). All glory to you forever and ever (Philippians 4:19), in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!”

For the record, there’s no guarantee you will get healing, since God does as He pleases. Some might ask, why bother praying this then? I say to that person, this will connect you deeper with God, and this will give you peace. But best case scenario, we’ll get exactly what we hoped and prayed for. So why not?

Peace to all those who are in Christ.

    • Looking at the Greek, the word for cast out is ekballo which means to eject, to drive out. Basically to remove. And the word for demon is daimonion, which basically means an evil spirit or messenger or minister of the devil.

  2. God answers my prayers, He is present, others may think not due to one happening after another that don’t bring favor, however, He always does on His time, not mine, so I stay loyal and rooted firmly in faith.
