Healing Prayers For A Loved One

If you’ve found yourself here, then you’re searching for the right words to pray over a loved one who is ill. You may be at a loss for what to say, or where even to begin. In times like these, it helps to turn to the all-encompassing, never-failing love of God and ask for his help through prayer. A powerful way to connect with God is through scripture-based prayers for healing. These prayers lift us up when we feel sick, sad, or lonely—and remind us that God always has our back.

Healing Prayers For A Loved One

1. A Prayer for Healing your Friend

Dear God,

Pray for my friend [insert name].

Please heal their body so that they may live long and prosper.

I pray that peace be with them, even as they go through this hard time.

I also pray for their family and loved ones who are suffering with them in this time of hardship. May they find comfort in knowing you are always there to support them, no matter what happens. Continue reading the rest of this prayer below…

2. A Prayer for Healing a Sick Family Member or Loved One

When dealing with a loved one’s illness, it can be difficult to find the words to express your love and support. Here is a prayer you can use as a guide:

  • Heavenly Father, thank You for bringing this person into my life. Please help me do everything in my power to make sure they feel safe and cared for during this time of healing.
  • Please give them peace and strength as they go through their treatment, whether it be surgery or chemotherapy or radiation treatment or any other course of action that may be necessary at this time.
  • Guide their doctors’ hands as they administer treatments according to Your will. Let their health improve quickly so that these procedures won’t have to take too long!

3. A Prayer for Healing Those Who Serve Others

“Lord, we pray for those who serve others. We pray that they will be healed quickly and easily; that they will feel better as soon as possible. We ask this in the name of your son Jesus Christ, who taught us to love each other and care for one another.”

4. A Prayer of Forgiveness for a Sick Loved One

The power of forgiveness is something that many of us have difficulty with. Forgiving others may be easy, but forgiving ourselves can be a struggle. When someone close to you is struggling with their health and well-being, it can be difficult to find the strength to forgive them for their mistakes or poor decisions.

Forgiveness might seem like an impossible task in this situation, but it doesn’t have to be. While forgiveness may not seem like an immediate solution, there are ways in which it can actually help you heal from your own pains and struggles without having to hold onto blame or resentment. By forgiving yourself or another person who has hurt you emotionally or physically, you’re taking control of your life back from those who would seek only negativity from those around them—and giving yourself permission for growth on both personal levels: emotional healing and spiritual growth go hand-in-hand when we choose forgiveness over anger

5. A Prayer for Healing in Any Situation

In any situation, we can pray for healing. We can pray for the person to be healed, we can pray for their doctor, and we can pray for those who are in their lives. The following prayer is a good one to use whenever you want to pray for someone’s healing:

“Heavenly Father, thank you so much for keeping me safe today and always. Please help my family member (and all others) who is not feeling well right now with their symptoms of pain or illness; give them strength, courage and peace knowing that even though this may seem like a big problem now at least there will be an answer as soon as possible! And please let all doctors involved work together towards one goal: getting better results! In Jesus’ name I ask all this!”

6. A Prayer for the World’s Healers

“A Prayer for the World’s Healers”

Heavenly Father,

We pray for those who work in the healing arts. We thank you for their gentle touch and their compassion as they bring hope to those who are sick or injured. We ask your blessing upon them, and we ask that they be mindful of Your grace as they go about their work on Earth. Amen

7. Even though there are no guarantees, you can always pray.

Praying is always a good idea, no matter how bad the situation may seem. Prayer is a way to connect with your loved one, and it’s also a way to connect with God, the universe, and all divine forces. Pray for him or her every day until they get better. Even if they don’t recover completely from their illness or injury and die from it, you still can pray that he or she finds peace in death.


As you pray, remember that there are no guarantees. There is no magic formula to make someone well. When you pray for healing, you’re not just asking God to make the person better; you’re also praying for God’s will to be done in that person’s life. We live in a fallen world where sickness and death are a reality. But we can trust God’s wisdom and his love for his children when he allows pain and suffering as part of our journey here on earth (1 Peter 5:7).
