We are all in need of healing, so we should all be praying for healing! But what does that mean and what does it truly look like? In this post, we hope to answer some of these questions. We’ll also be taking a look at some content from the Lifehacks Bible that’s super helpful.
How Do I Pray For Healing?
First, let’s talk about who we are praying for. We can pray for healing for ourselves, for people we love, for groups of people we may or may not know, and the entire world. We can confidently pray for healing for everyone because everyone has been hurt before and everyone needs God’s deliverance.
Healing Looks Different for Everyone
When we talk about praying for healing, we could also call it “praying for deliverance”. Ultimately, we are praying to be rescued or set free from our affliction. This extends then to not just physical ailments, but emotional, relational, and honestly, anything that doesn’t align with Shalom. The peaces of God, the way things were supposed to be, shalom.
Psalm147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Almighty God, you are the only source of health and healing. In you there is calm, and the only true peace in the universe. Grant to each one of us your children an awareness of your presence, and give us perfect confidence in you. In all pain and weariness and anxiety teach us to yield ourselves to your never-failing care, knowing that your love and power surround us, trusting in your wisdom and providence to give us health and strength and peace when your time is best; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Prayer For Personal Healing
Heavenly Father, I know that my times are in Your hands and I also believe that You care about everything in my life. In Your sovereignty, You are not surprised by anything that happens to any of Your children. I believe that You make all things work together for the good of us that love You. I believe that You care for each one of us with a perfect and holy love.
I come to You today because my health has been deteriorating with some ailment that has not been diagnosed. I am not sure what to do, but I know that You understand everything about me.

Prayer Of Protection Those With Dementia
Heavenly Father, look down in pity and mercy on all that are suffering with the illness of dementia. Father, we know that although our loved ones may not recognise the family and friends who love them dearly, Your Holy Spirit can commune with their human spirit in a unique and Godly way, which must be very precious to Your heart. Thank You, Father, that in the power of Your Holy Spirit, You can touch the heart of those that have lost the memories of those that are their nearest and dearest.
Father, I ask Your protection on those that are suffering with this debilitating mental disease and pray that You will minister to the emotional and spiritual needs of those we love, with all forms of this mental illness.
Comfort those that feel excluded from a loved one with dementia, in the knowledge that Your grace is sufficient. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
