Prayer For Healing

Before we start, we have another resource to go along with prayer for healing that you might find helpful, 20 Bible Verses For Healing. You don’t want to miss that article and it also has beautiful Scripture graphics, you can find the article here.

This prayer for healing post was especially emotional for me. Anytime I’m working on a prayer post, I always try to place myself in the shoes of the person I’m writing for and write prayers for the perspective of their circumstances. However, as I began writing this list of prayer for healing, I knew that it wouldn’t be hard to relate to these prayers. 

Instead, I found myself whisked back to the summer of 2017 when I received the worst news of my life. At 18 weeks pregnant, I was told that my unborn baby was dying inside of me.

The list of things wrong with my beloved unborn baby was inconceivably long, and the multiple doctors we visited said there was practically no chance that my little girl, Lucy, would survive. 

I was defeated and broken. 

But this wasn’t the first time I faced something like this. 

In 2011, I became pregnant with my first child, and within 6 weeks, my little precious baby had died on Christmas Day. My husband and I were torn and broken, but after some time, and a lot of prayer and conversation, we decided to try again about 6 months later. 

That pregnancy, my second, was going along fine, other than the nervousness we both felt every single day. We were so scared that I would miscarry again and lose another precious life. 

That fear came true. Around 11 weeks the bleeding began. I remember sitting on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night, crying out to Jesus, begging Him to save my baby’s life. Although immensely painful, that night was also a sacred moment. I felt extremely close to Jesus even as my body was losing the baby who had died. 

God didn’t save either of those lives. I cannot speak to why He didn’t save their lives, but I can speak to the love and compassion I felt from Jesus. 

We didn’t try to get pregnant again for several years. We didn’t even speak about it much. We were so broken over these precious losses. 

My third pregnancy in 2015 was a healthy one, and now I have a toddler (Rhett) running around me as I type this post. 

A year after Rhett was born, we decided that we wanted to try to have one more child. Even with one happy baby at home, we still knew the risks involved. But we decided that whatever happens is what happens, and realized that anything was possible. 

We certainly didn’t dream at the time that this pregnancy would result in a baby barely clinging to life, fighting impossible odds to make it into this world.

For years, I’d had on my heart a little girl named Lucy. As soon as I found out my fourth baby was a girl, I named her immediately and felt like the luckiest person in the world. My Lucy was created and I was going to be her mom!

So you can imagine what it was like when we went in for our 18 week ultrasound, and found out our precious Lucy had so much working against her. You can read her whole story here: Lucy’s Story A Turner Syndrome Baby

I share all of this because it is important for you to know that these prayers are written out of that experience. The place where I was a year ago, when there was no hope, and no one believed Lucy would live. 

At the time, pregnant with a child diagnosed as dying within me, I was scared to pray to God for healing, because quite honestly, I wasn’t so sure Jesus healed in that miraculous way anymore. I knew He did while He was on this earth, but in my experience with my other losses, there was no physical healing. And of course, I understand that one day we will be reunited and that day will be glorious! 

But as time passed on the journey of carrying Lucy inside of me, I felt God calling me to pray for her life. I was terrified to put my trust in this calling to prayer and letting go. 

Prayer For Healing

So these prayers come out of that place, the place where there is no hope in anything other than God.

Really all of our days should be lived in this reality, that God is our only hope in all things. 

I hope these prayers help you find the words stirring in your heart over whatever ails you.
