Prayer for Health

A beautiful prayer for health and healing

This page features several inspiring prayers for good health, healing, wellbeing and protection. The first prayer concerns the health of our whole being - mind, spirit and body - and is suitable for personal devotion or for giving to a loved one, family member or friend. This is followed by a short video meditation to receive God's healing and strength. There is also the famous prayer "The Lord is my Shepherd" which reminds of Gods safety, care and protection.

A prayer for good health

Lord, today I offer You my mind
May I seek the mind of Christ in all things
Freed from anxiety and fear
Filled with wholeness and wellness

Today I offer You my spirit
In You I have been born again
Your Spirit dwells deeply within me
My Spirit is alive in You
Freed from depressive thoughts and critical thinking

Today I offer You my body
May it be a temple dedicated to You O Lord
A place for You to live and reign
May I be mindful of what I eat and drink
May I be watchful of my sleep and rest

Lord, right now I offer you my whole being
I present my mind, spirit and body to You
Come and take me as a living sacrifice
This day and everyday
May I ever glorify and worship You

Lord of Heaven,
I rest underneath your mighty wings of love.

You are my Lord, my Saviour,
My healer and my friend.
I dwell within your gentle embrace.

Two traditional prayers for health

A Catholic Prayer for Healing

Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You.
Allow Your healing hand to heal me.
Touch my soul with Your compassion for others.
Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all.
Touch my mind with Your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim Your praise. Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example.
Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength.
Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever.

Thanksgiving for the Restoration of Health
(A Short Episcopal Prayer)

Almighty God and heavenly Father,
we give thee humble thanks because thou hast been graciously pleased to deliver from his sickness thy servant N.,
in whose behalf we bless and praise thy Name.
Grant, O gracious Father, that he, through thy help,
may live in this world according to thy will,
and also be partaker of everlasting glory in the life to come;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
