Bible Verses About Healing

By July 19, 2022 Bible Study

Prayer for healingOne of God’s names in the Bible is Jehovah Rapha (Exodus 15:26), which means “the God who heals.”  Healing is a part of God’s character and one way that He reveals Himself to us.  3 John 3:1-2 says, “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.”  When we are confronted with the mental battle of wondering if God wants to heal us or someone we’re praying for, like a friend or family member, we need to remember 2 Corinthians 10:5.  We are instructed to “demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,” and “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”  We can do that through reading and memorizing Bible verses about healing.  

Speaking the Word of God over our body, soul, and spirit can have a powerful effect on our thought life and the spirit realm.  We have collected some scripture verses on healing for you to meditate upon and pray over yourself.  Write these Bible verses about healing in your journal, put them on your bathroom mirror or on your desk at work, and declare them out loud over your body until the voice of the Lord becomes louder than the voice of doubt.
