9 Healing Scriptures to Pray and Declare

When we are in need of healing, God is the best place to turn, both for answers and for the manifestation of our healing. Yet, while we know we ought to turn to God in every situation, we do not always know how. 

Certainly, conversing with God, worshiping, and praying in the Spirit are great and useful options… However, another effective tool we can employ involves praying and standing on Scripture!

Here are 9 Healing Scriptures to pray and declare; remember, there are many, many more healing Scriptures that you can explore too:

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.”—Psalm 103:1-6 (emphasis added)

“And Jesus said to him, ‘I will come and heal him.’

“The centurion answered and said, ‘Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, “Go,” and he goes; and to another, “Come,” and he comes; and to my servant, “Do this,” and he does it.’

“When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!’ …Then Jesus said to the centurion, ‘Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.’ And his servant was healed that same hour.—Matthew 8:5-10, 13 (emphasis added)
