When You Need God’s Divine Healing – A Personal Prayer

prayer for healing, God's divine healing, faith

Are you struggling with illness, disease, or issues beyond your control and you desperately want God’s divine healing but don’t know how or what to pray? Use this prayer as a starting place if you are feeling alone, afraid, or unsure of the future. 

God tells us that through prayer, He can speak to us and use us to work miracles for His glory. When you use this prayer for divine healing you are coming to God completely surrendered and expectant to let His Holy Spirit work in and through you. I pray that you will find miraculous healing as you seek God’s plan for your life – His plan to prosper you and to give you a hope and future! 

God, you know me so well. You created me. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize them. You’ve told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the number of years I’ll live and serve you on earth.

I’m coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There’s so much I don’t understand about life. But I do know that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my sins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.

I don’t always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when I desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for my health. I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire of my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you—and okay with me. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.

I absolutely believe you have the power to heal. You demonstrated that on earth, and you still heal in miraculous ways today. Even when my faith is weak, you say it is enough, and my love for you is strong. And I know you already hold my heart and life in your hands. It’s up to you. If I can bring you more glory through healing, then that’s what I ask for. That’s what I desire.

But if your answer is no, or not now, I know that your grace is sufficient for me. Ultimately, I want your will to be my will. I look forward to spending an eternity with you. But Lord, if you have planned still more for me to do here on this earth, I not only need and want your physical healing, Lord, but a thorough, deep-down cleansing and strengthening—a whole-hearted renewal of all that I am. Because all that I am is yours. Use this trial to strengthen me from a “what-if” faith to a “no-matter-what” faith. And no matter what, I choose to honor you and give you glory.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Personal Note

I wrote this prayer for God’s divine healing not as a premise for how, when, or if God heals. He is Jehovah-Rapha God. And God can do anything, including healing. He has done that for me many times in many ways. But I have also learned that God is still the same loving Father in the “but if’s” of life. There are some areas in my life that God whispers, “Wait,” or “Not now.”

Ultimately I want what He wants. But He gives me the privilege of coming boldly to His throne and asking my heart’s desire. The rest is up to Him. I offer this prayer simply as an encouragement for those who are truly seeking God’s face–and for those who desire the Healer more than the healing.


Sometimes, faith is simply resting in, “Whatever You want is what I want, Lord!”
