Prayers for the Sick With Bible Verses

Heavenly Father, we come before you with hearts burdened for those who are unwell. In the midst of their suffering, we seek Your comfort, healing, and peace. Your Word assures us that You are the Great Physician, and we place our trust in Your unfailing love.

Bible Verses: Prayers for the Sick

  1. Jeremiah 17:14 (NIV):

    “Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”

  2. Psalm 107:19-21 (NIV):

    “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.”

  3. James 5:14-15 (NIV):

    “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.”

Continuation of Prayer:

Lord Jesus, we lift up [name of the sick person] to You, knowing that You are aware of every pain, every concern, and every need. Your Word declares in Psalm 34:18 (NIV), “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” We pray for Your closeness and Your saving grace in this moment.

Grant wisdom to the medical professionals attending to them, and may Your healing power be at work through the hands of those providing care. We claim the promise of Isaiah 53:5 (NIV): “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed.”

We also remember the words of Exodus 15:26 (NIV): “I am the Lord, who heals you.” We trust in Your divine healing, acknowledging Your sovereignty over all things.

Lord, be a source of strength for [name of the sick person]’s loved ones. Surround them with Your peace that surpasses all understanding, as mentioned in Philippians 4:7 (NIV).

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
