I have prayed this prayer for healing. It is directed toward babies and young children, however, you can change it to pray for people of all ages and stages. May it be a blessing to you and to and loved ones.
Oh Mighty God, you stun me with Your Beauty and Hope. You ARE our Creator and Restorer. You are called Jehova Rapha, the God who heals. This is who you ARE. No one can debate it or doubt it. You ARE God who heals. I know this from the depths of my being. And I call on You, Lord, as I pray for You to intercede and provide healing.
I receive healing on behalf of all those who read this prayer or pray this prayer for others. You have called me to pray and I am faithful to what you ask of me. Lord I know there are babies right now who need your healing touch. Babies and young children who have been stricken by disease, body malfunctions and pain inflicted by accidents or by others. In Psalm 41, Lord, You tell us that You personally nurse the sick back to health. And Psalm 30 reminds us to call to You for help and You provide healing. I lift these promises to You, Lord, and anticipate Your healing touch.
With FAITH I call to You to be Jehova Rapha and release your healing into the babies and children in our prayers. Release their bodies from illness; recalibrate their bodies to proper functioning; restore them to the perfect health You created for them. I thank you, Lord, for hearing and answering. I dance for joy just knowing these babies and children will know vibrant health and wellness.
You are Powerful where we are powerless. You are Provider and Protector and we are your children of faith. Lord I see a wave coming in. Jesus was like a wave when he went from town to town healing. Matt. 9:35 tells us that “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.” I see Your wave of healing washing over those being prayed for. You, Lord, send the wave. In Isaiah 55 you tell of your promises to provide for us and assure us that Your Word is true. So we receive this wave of healing. We let it wash over us and those in our prayers. We allow Your wave to wash away any doubt, fear, trembling, anxiety or disappointment we are feeling. You replace that with assurance that you accomplish what You desire; You give strength to handle any circumstance and You provide answers, nourishment and recovery.
So today, Lord, I lean into your strength. I know that You are carrying those affected by sickness and physical failures through the suffering and anguish and into perfect healing. In 1 John 5:14-15 You tell us, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us and if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” I lift my hands in celebration of the healing our Jehova Rapha gives even as I am praying right now. Thank you for the peace, healing and comfort for those babies and children in our prayers today.
Through Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
Psalm 30:2 NIV
O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
