15 Prayers For The Sick

by Sister McCook

The Lord Jesus Christ said, “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well” Mark 16: 17 – 18.  

Can you see it there? You can actually heal the sick if you believe or you are a Christian of faith and a prayer warrior. All you need to do is to lay your hands on the sick. The Lord instructed that as you go about preaching the gospel, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, and cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give” Matthew 10: 8.

Below are 15 prayers for the sick that you can use for a family member, a friend, a church member, yourself or anyone who you would like to help heal and get well.
