Almighty God, you are the only source of health and healing. Prove your mighty hand in the life of this precious soul.

Thank you Jesus because you are a God that answers prayers. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen.

In conclusion

It is more than important to emphasize that not all disease is necessarily the product of individual sin, even while we know that Jesus came to the world because of our sin. (Job 2: 5-7, Genesis 2:17, Romans 5: 12-17).

It is appropriate to evoke, by way of example, the cases of Job tried by disease and the man born blind chosen by the Lord to manifest the divine glory (Job2: 1-10, John 9).

The prayer of faith will only work wonders in the life of born-again Christians. If you know you are not born again, I will therefore ask you to receive Jesus Christ first, by prayer, as Lord and personal Savior of your life.

Why? The fact of being born in Christ will erase any condemnation that weighed against your soul and set you free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8: 1-2). The new birth in Christ will give you access to God’s Kingdom of glory (John 3: 3)!

Your testimony shall abound in Jesus’s mighty name, Amen.

Use these powerful Healing prayers for a loved one to pray for your loved one and see the mighty hand of God move.
