Prayer for a Sick Person–Health is wealth. Sickness of the
body affects not just the body but also the mind, resources,
family, society and other important aspects of human life. God
is the Source of health, and He would have us pray to Him for
the sustenance of our health. No wonder the Psalmist prayed:
“Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou
disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise
Him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God”
Effects of sickness: Some of the problems associated with
sickness include, but are not limited to:
1. Depletion of finances;
2. Troubled mind;
3. A disturbed family;
4. An endangered society (if the sickness is communicable);
None of these is the will of God for His people.
“And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that
dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity” (Isaiah 33:24).
Balm of Gilead: The Lord Jesus Christ is the Balm of
Gilead, and a sure cure for all sicknesses and diseases. We
can trust Him to hear us any time we call. He said:
“And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee,
and thou shalt glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15).
“For the hurt of the daughter of My people am I hurt; I am
black; astonishment hath taken hold on Me” (Jeremiah 8:21).
The Ministry of Intercession: Every believer is qualified to
pray for other believers, unbelievers, and the world at large,
as he is an ambassador for God's kingdom on earth.
Prayer for a Sick Person
Thanksgiving: Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer. Thank
You for providing the way for sound health through Your Son
Renewal of Diseased Organs: I pray for every sick person, o
Lord. Have mercy and heal them in Jesus name. Let whatever
organ in them that is affected be renewed in Jesus name. Let
the healing power of the Holy Ghost penetrate the deepest
nooks and crannies of sick bodies and heal them in Jesus
The Defeat of Satan: Satan did not have the final word at
calvary, because Christ rose again to die no more.
“Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no
more; death hath no more dominion over Him” (Romans 6:9).
Therefore, Satan shall not have the last laugh over any sick
one in Jesus name.
“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord”
Restoration of Losses: Father, let every material, mental and
spiritual loss incurred through sickness be recovered in Jesus
name. Let every shattered relationship, and destabilized home
be reconciled in Jesus name. Let there be no more scourge of
sickness in Jesus name.
Thank You for answered prayers. In Jesus name I have
