Short Prayer For Healing And Recovery For Someone/Friend

Do you know someone who is sick?. Are reading this page to get a short prayer for the healing and recovery of someone, a friend, family member, colleague etc? Let me tell you this, you are doing one of the most humanitarian deeds on earth.

What you are doing has both physical and spiritual effects. When we pray for the sick, we are praying for God’s will to be done “on earth as it is in heaven”

Look, you don’t have to be a pastor or a prayer warrior to pray for the sick. God has given us a mouth not just to eat and talk but to also pray to him. Praying for the sick, besides being “powerful and effective” (James 5:16), is also a great comfort to those who are suffering.

I can think of no greater gift to give another human being than to appear before the throne of the Lord on their behalf to ask for a blessing.

Please note, before using these short prayers for the healing and recovery of someone or a friend, ensure you first give thanks to God. Thanksgiving is necessary. You must first come to God with thanksgiving before making any further prayer. Each of those short for healing and recovery comes with a prayer message/verse.

Short Prayer For Healing And Recovery For Someone/Friend

(Praying beside the sick friend)

(Guideline by Sam Adeosun)

  • Give thanks to God for this opportunity and because God does answer your prayer. Do this before you leave home.
  • Ask for forgiveness of your sins and that of the person you are about to pray for before you leave home.
  • Go with faith in the name of Jesus Christ. (Please never pray in the name of any pastor, prophet or overseer. If you must use “the God of…”, use “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob”. This is the only name sanctioned by God to be used in Prayers FOREVER and a memorial to ALL generations. See Exo. 3:15).
  • Go with anointing oil. (Just anointing oil. It does not necessarily mean that you have prayed over it before now. You can even buy it on the way to where you are going).
  • Have faith that whatever you prayed for is answered.
  • Don’t pray for the sick with the intention of taking the glory for yourself. Pray with the intention of giving God the glory. Remember that wherever His name is lifted, He will respond mightily.
  • If the sick person is an unbeliever, speak first about Jesus Christ with him/her. He/she must give consent and understand that his/her faith is required in the process of healing. The sick person must also renounce all rituals used before now.
