Prayers for Healing

Christian Prayer for Healing

Heavenly Father, You are intimately aware of the struggle I am experiencing – the pain and the despair.  You know the desire of my heart to be healed of this illness.  I ask now for Your healing touch.  I know that You are able.  You can heal me.

I also understand that You will chose what is best for me.  I pray that through this trial, I will draw close to You – that You will be my comfort and strength.  I pray that ultimately, whatever happens, You will be glorified through me.

Baha’i World Faith Healing Prayer

 Thy name is my healing, O my God,

and remembrance of Thee is my remedy.

Nearness to Thee is my hope,

and love for Thee is my companion.

Thy mercy to me is my healing

and my succor in both this world

and the world to come.

Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful,

the All-Knowing, the All–Wise.

Buddhist Prayers for Peace & Healing

May you be at peace,
May your heart remain open.
May you awaken to the light of your own true nature.
May you be healed,
May you be a source of healing for all beings.

*      *     *

May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind
quickly be freed from their illnesses.
May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free.
May the powerless find power, and may people think of befriending one another.
May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wildernesses—
the children, the aged, the unprotected—
be guarded by beneficent celestials,
and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.
