11 Intercessory Prayers For The Sick

Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed.

Isaiah 53:4-5

Sickness is a symptom of our earthly bodies. When we feel weak and tired it means that we are living flesh that can only inhabit the earth. Our mortal bodies are not going to live forever and sometimes they exhibit the weakness that will eventually return them back to the dirt from which they were made.

The source of our mortal bodies is the earth that it lives on. Our bodies long for the day that they will return to the ground. God breathed into Adam’s body and quickened him to life. This means that it is God who gives and sustains life. God is spirit and it is that spirit that lives in us and gives us consciousness.

God gave His Son as a sacrifice for our sins so our lost spirits could come to Him again. He also gave us the Holy Spirit to guide, heal, refresh, empower, encourage and teach us His ways so that when the time comes for the body to perish our spirits can find their way back to their source which is God.

But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD.

Jeremiah 30:17

God has already spoken about how He will treat His sick children. The source of our infirmities is the earth that we live in. Our spirits cannot be sick or die since Christ already paid for our wages. This means that to enjoy the healing power of our maker we must be tuned in to His spirit every single time in our lives.

When you know your mechanic’s number you are not afraid of getting a fault in your car because you know that no matter where you break down you can reach out to them for the necessary assistance. Similarly, when we know that God is in control of our lives, we rest assured because we know that no matter what ailment may enter our bodies He is more than capable of restoring us to health.

This is why we must spread the gospel so others can get on God’s contact list as well. We pray for healing for the sick just as Christ did when He walked among us because when you are in Christ his stripes bear witness to your divine healing.
