Verses on Healing

Have you ever wondered if God really promises to heal today?  Does he promise emotional healing, physical healing, or both?  What role does our faith play in God's willingness to heal?  Should I have others pray for me, or can I just ask God for healing on my own?  What if I pray and it doesn't happen-how do I fight through the discouragement?  The Bible has much to say on all these questions.  Below is a list of verses on healing compiled by a member of our church who has experienced dramatic and miraculous healing more than once.  We hope these verses will be an encouragement to you.  If you have further questions you can always contact us.  If you need prayer for healing, it would be our pleasure to pray for you in our House of Prayer, during our monthly Face to Face service, with one of our prayer teams after a Sunday service, or individually through our pastoral counseling ministry.

Psalm 91:4-7 - “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.  A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.”

Psalm 91:14-16 - “'Because he loves me,’ says the Lord, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.  He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.'”

James 5:14-16 - “Is any one of you sick?  He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.  Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
