Prayer for healing is a central part of Jewish tradition. It is believed that prayer can help heal physical ailments, as well as emotional and spiritual ones. The Talmud says there are three types of healing: 1) medical treatment, 2) Divine intervention and 3) a combination of both. To that end, the Torah instructs Jews to regularly pray for the sick using specific blessings and rituals.
In this article, we will look at some of those prayers so you can use them if you need to!
Jewish Prayer For Healing
1. Baruch atah Adonai, Rofei chol basar.
- Baruch atah Adonai, rofei chol basar.
- “Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who heals the sick”
Used for: Praying for healing of yourself or others. Not used for self-healing; for observing someone else’s healing process in order to assist them spiritually through prayer.
How to use it: Say this prayer as often as possible over the course of several days or weeks—this isn’t an instantaneous cure! When you’re finished saying this prayer and feel like you’ve said it enough times (or if you feel that your condition is improving), move on to another Jewish prayer on this list that will help further aid in your recovery process (see below).
2. Blessed are You, Adonai, Healer of the sick.
- Blessed are You, Adonai, Healer of the sick.
- Blessed are You, Adonai, who heals the broken-hearted.
- Blessed are You, Adonai our God and God of our fathers: may Your name be blessed forever and ever; may it be exalted above all blessing and praise! Blessed be Your glorious kingdom for all eternity! And let there continue to be heard in the world: Great is YHVH – that alone He does wondrously! Let this be known among all nations where they say “Great is YHVH in Israel”
3. V’yashiveinu bishalom Adonai, Eloheinu
The prayer is a way to ask God to heal you, and it’s said in the following way:
V’yashiveinu bishalom Adonai, Eloheinu shim’cha lechah (v’yeshivah) litzlan yodea.
We beseech G-d who is gracious and merciful to help us with forgiveness of our sins.
The prayer can be used for any health issue, including physical ailments such as headaches and back pain as well as emotional issues like depression or anxiety
4. And bring us in peace to our full lives.
And bring us in peace to our full lives.
This prayer is used to heal others, to heal ourselves, and even to heal the world. It’s a simple prayer that can be said for whatever you’re needing at the time. It can be used for anything from physical healing to emotional healing, from spiritual healing to planetary or universal healing. You can say it often throughout the day or just once in a while when you feel like your life is out of balance or off-track somehow…and see what happens!
5. V’nomar, Amein.
The prayer is the same in Hebrew and English:
- V’nomar, Amein.
- May God bless you and cure you.
It is a blessing for the sick person:
- Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Haolam, Asher B’chetzanuti V’natan Lechem Min Haaretz. (Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe who brings forth bread from the earth.)
6. This is a prayer used when wanting healing for someone else
If you are in need of healing, use this prayer. If you want to help someone else heal, use this prayer. If there is a situation that needs healing on a larger scale (the world), use this prayer.
This is the energy of light and love that surrounds us all. The light in our hearts connects us through the universe and allows us to know each other as one family with one heart and mind, no matter where we come from or what language we speak, or what color we are. We are all brothers and sisters on this planet Earth; we all came here with the same purpose: To learn how to love ourselves so that others can do the same thing too! It’s time for all of us humans on planet earth – We’re here now! Let’s make it count by doing something positive for ourselves or other people around us because if everyone does just one small thing for others then soon enough our world will become better than ever before!
