Life is never all roses and fulfilled dreams. We are given temporary bodies that are thrown around by temptations. However, within our frail vessels, we have been given a spirit through which to communicate with God in our trials. We connect with Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals, when we offer powerful and personal prayers for divine healing.
Our physical bodies and mental capacities will not heal indefinitely here on Earth, but our spirits are constantly renewed.
So, while we will fight to regain or maintain our physical or mental health at times, the most important battle we will face is spiritual warfare. The adversary is on the prowl, hoping to dupe us.
Because God has given us a spirit of strength, love, and sound mind, rather than a spirit of fear. – 2 Tim. 1:7
In truth, these bodies that inevitably fail us house the divine:
Or do you not realize that your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, whom you have received from God? You are not your own… – 1 Cor. 6:19
We are neither “our own” or “on our own.” When our spirits are worn out from warfare, we can pray for God’s supernatural healing.
What Is Spiritual Healing, and What Does the Bible Say About It?
The Bible says a lot about the healing that only God can provide. God knows that we are all fighting spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly regions rather than flesh and blood on Earth (Ephesians 6:12).
And our human spirit was created from the very beginning, as God breathed life into the dust that we are. This spirit is how we communicate with God. According to John 3:6, “that which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”
And once we accept Jesus, he becomes a resident in our spirit. However, we face a very real adversary who seeks to injure and steal that spirit, as well as its many fruits…love, joy, peace…and, most importantly, our fidelity.
Constant prayer is both our shield and our remedy for spiritual healing.
So, submit yourselves to God. The devil will flee from you if you resist him. – James 4:7
The more personal your prayers are, the more powerfully you will sense them pulling you into God’s heart. Here are five prayers to ask for spiritual healing today:
5 Effective and Personal Prayers for Spiritual Healing
1. A Repentance Prayer to Heal a Regretful Spirit
The spirit can become trapped in self-condemnation at times. Choices, errors, detours, and even unanticipated outcomes can all hold your spirit hostage. With prayer, tend to it.
Dear God, my spirit is heavy with shame. I’ve made mistakes that are difficult for me to admit to you, even though I know you know every breath I take. I know you sent Jesus to cleanse us all of sin, but I still feel as if I haven’t been cleansed.
My spirit is weighed down by humiliation, Lord. I’ve made mistakes that are difficult for me to admit to you, even though I know you know every breath I take. I understand that you sent Jesus to cleanse us all of our sins, but I still feel like I have to be perfect or it doesn’t apply to me. Can you reach into my spirit and tell me I’m forgiven?
Hear my repentant prayer and lead me down the path of eternal life. Help me believe you when you say in Psalm 103:33, “I have removed your transgressions as far as the east is from the west.” Protect my spirit while it heals so that I don’t repeat the same mistakes.
I thank you for your ability to heal. In the name of Jesus, amen.
2. A Healing Prayer for Unforgiveness
Life can throw us situations that seem unforgivable. Even inconceivable. Nonetheless, Jesus is aware. And he hasn’t asked you to pass judgment. He came to assure you that you will triumph. So cast your unforgiveness into his hands and allow him to heal your soul.
My soul is sick with pain and rage, Lord. Holding on to the memory of the pain inflicted on me, as I do, keeps me trapped in a dark place. I can almost feel the heavy chains wrapping around my hands and feet, tying me to the very situation that caused my embarrassment.
Please help me stop replaying painful memories. Your healing should cover me. Give me your forgiveness strength. Give me your eyes to see those who harm me in the same way that you do. Heal my unforgiveness and restore my spirit’s ability to trust and love.
In the name of Almighty God, Amen
3. A Prayer for Spiritual Healing in Times of Grief
God is a relationship in and of himself. He embodies love. And he wants our relationship with him to be the focal point and genesis of all our other relationships. But we live in a fractured world. Sin, selfishness, lies, betrayal, cheating, gossip, and other vices infect and destroy our relationships with others, putting our faith to the test.
God has the power to heal the wounds of spiritual brokenness. God is the source of the miracle, no matter how long it takes you to heal. Bring anything broken to him and ask for his healing.
God, I’m overjoyed that you want to be in a relationship with me. My spirit is filled with sadness. It’s terrifying to put on a happy face in front of the world after my hopes in my earthly relationships have crumbled. It’s like having a fever that won’t go away.
Can I completely entrust this relationship to you, Great Physician? Even though my faith is fading, I offer you my part in supplication and prayer with thanksgiving, that you would demonstrate your power to me. Show me your brilliant plan so that I can keep up with you.
I have faith in you to heal what is within your power and for the good of all. In your mighty name, amen.
4. A Prayer for Courage
Fear is a frightening creature. Fear can bully even the strongest spirit into hiding in a world battling viruses, economic upheaval, political unrest, homelessness, and an endless host of spirit-attackers. We’d rather disconnect from everything than connect to our source of healing power. God knows what you’re afraid of. Allow him to see everything, and ask for the courage he promises.
Dear God, my fears are getting the best of me, and I can’t seem to get my spirits back on track. I’m terrified, frustrated, and shaken. Will you demonstrate to me that your plan is sound? Will you exchange your anxiety for peace right now?
Right now, I choose to believe that you did not send me this fearful spirit. Lord, breathe the spirit you breathed into me when you created me into me again. Assure me that you are with me even when the waters are high and the storms continue.
Pick up my spirit, God, and empower me to be a courageous front-line believer. Amen.
5. A Prayer to Cultivate Spiritual Fruits
In his parable of the vine, Jesus makes it clear that the state of our spirit reflects our connection to the source. If your spirit has recently become sick, as evidenced by sour fruit – such as lack of self-control, meanness, or any other symptom of a sin-sick world – come to the vine in prayer and be nourished.
Father, I feel like a splintered branch from a vine. I come to you in prayer today to completely encircle you. Develop a spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control in me.
I offer you my regrets, anger, anxiety, fear, and all of my soul wounds for healing. I can’t do it by myself. As I pray, I surrender every barrier I’ve built to resist your presence in my spirit. Restore in me a steadfast spirit of trust in you. In the name of Jesus, amen.
The Influence of Prayer When it comes to spiritual healing
Prayer is proof that you are a part of something bigger than yourself. It acknowledges that we have an enemy, that life is difficult, that we can be hurt, and that there is only one source of healing. Even doctors, scientists, nutritionists, therapists, and other earthly healers are part of God’s plan, offering their knowledge only through the grace of God.
Praying the words of God in your spirit, and even using the Word of God, liberates you from the self-imposed traps of hiding, condemnation, and fear. It summons supernatural power. This is alluded to by Jesus when he says,
The Spirit is the source of life; the flesh serves no purpose. The words I have spoken to you are full of spirit and life. – John 6:63
In prayer, open your heart to God and allow him to heal you. God knows how difficult it is to bear. Proverbs paints the following picture:
To respond before listening is both foolish and shameful. The human spirit can withstand illness, but who can bear a broken spirit? The discerning heart acquires knowledge, and the wise ears seek it out. A gift clears the path and welcomes the giver into the presence of the great. – Psalm 18:13-16
Our loving God desires to renew our weary spirits as sinners in need of a Savior. He has given us a healer as well as the ability to invite his healing. Bring yourself into his presence and allow the healing to begin.
“Those who are well do not need a physician; those who are sick do,” Jesus said when he heard this. “I came to call sinners, not the righteous.” – Mark 2:17
You are blessed.
