Powerful Healing Prayer for sick Child (with Bible Verses)

A few days back, a young boy was rushed into the hospital very sick.

He was just two years old and was severely vomiting and frequently passing watery stools.

Unsurprisingly, His mum was so worried because, as she said, this was the first time her son has fallen ill.

She was panicked and worried about losing her first child.

Will this sickness go away so soon?

Is God going to help my child and return good health to him or her?

As parents, these are some of the scariest questions we ask ourselves when our children aren’t feeling well.

We all love how they play around us and eagerly want them to be healed by God.

That is why we must pray to ask God for the healing of your sick child.

And despite your child’s medical or surgical diagnosis, you must trust in God in difficult times.

There are many scriptures about trusting in God that can encourage your right now.

And just when you may think all hope is lost, God intervenes to disappoint the devil and your enemies.

As parents, it is worrying to see your child sick, weak, and restless.

So, today we will pray for healing for your children and ask that God’s mighty hand of healing locate your child.

No matter what the doctor has said, God is able to heal if you believe.

No matter what he or she has been diagnosed with, be it cancer, or other severe or terminal illnesses, God can heal.

I have put together this prayer for a sick child to guide you.

Prayer for sick Child with Healing

Prayer for sick Child with Healing

Healing is his children’s bread.

This afternoon, a young girl was rushed into the hospital, unable to stand upright and in excruciating pain.

While she was playing, she accidentally poured boiling-hot water on her body.

And after that, she sustained significant burns to most parts of her body.

She was crying helplessly, and as expected, the mother was in pain too.

She didn’t know what to do because, as she said, “everything happened in a split second.”

Thankfully, she was able to get hold of her emotions.

At first, she thought her daughter would never recover from her wounds.

But we serve a healing God that can take away all kinds of sicknesses.

I know God can heal her of her wounds in the shortest possible time.

So far, my team and I have examined and taken care of her wounds.

And by the grace of God, she would make a full recovery from her burns.

Likewise, if your son or daughter is not feeling well, you must pray to God.

Don’t always put all your trust in doctors and health care professionals.

I have managed multiple cases that God intervened miraculously.

I have also done multiple surgeries that I knew God had a hand in it.

So, If your child is sick, God can heal him.

Take your child to the doctor and pray for healing.

The scripture says,

Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.

Psalm 6:2

Let us pray

Powerful Healing Prayer for sick Child (with Bible Verses)

Dear Father in heaven,

I come before you today to ask for healing for my child.

Lord, I am a sinner, and I ask for your mercies.

Forgive me of my sins and answer my prayer today.

Lord, you know every of my heart desires.

The scripture says, “before we ask, you already know.”

Therefore, grant my heart desires and put joy in my heart.

Lord, my child (son or daughter) is not feeling well.

I have come to you because you said in your word, “ Is anyone among you sick?.”

Yes, Lord, my child is sick and needs your healing.

Lord, you are the only one that can heal and return strength to my child.

Therefore, I ask that you come down and do what only you can do.

Come down and deliver my child from the bondage of sickness.

Because you said in your word that healing is your children bread

Therefore, perform your miracle in the life of my child.

Thank you, father, for answering prayers

By his stripes, we were healed

Did Jesus die for nothing?

Of course, he did not.

The suffering and death of Jesus Christ were to heal our souls.

We were filled with sin, and by his persecution and sacrifice, we are redeemed to God.

We are no longer far away from our father by Christ’s death.

That is, when we pray, God is willing to hear and answer every one of our heart desires.

It doesn’t stop there. We must also have an unshakable faith in God.

If your child has been diagnosed with a terminal disease, trust in God to overcome it.

God can do anything if we believe in him.

The scriptures say,

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

John 14:13

Let us pray

Powerful Healing Prayer for sick Child (with Bible Verses)

Great Father in heaven, the great deliverer of the righteous.

Lord, I ask for the healing of my child.

I know there is nothing you can not do.

I know there is no sickness you cannot cure.

The scripture says, “The Lord will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on all who hate you.”

Lord, I trust in your power to heal my child.

I know you can cure him of all manner of diseases.

Lord, I rebuke every spirit of sickness.

Lord, today ends the sorrow and sadness of my child.

I will not lose my child to any form of the disease.

Lord, let your healing hand be stretch over my child.

Thank you, Lord, for your answered prayers.

Healing through faith

Faith and healing go hand in hand.

Just as fuel in a car propels it from one place to the other, your faith propels your prayers to be answered by God.

There are lots of misconceptions about what faith means and what it is not.

But I’m usually not concerned about what works for others but what has worked in my life.

Faith, to me, is believing that anything is possible with God.

That is, in dire circumstances, God can deliver you from your troubles.

So, we will pray for God to conquer all the troubles in your child’s life.

We will pray for quick healing and sound health.

The scripture says,

Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 17:20

Let us pray

Powerful Healing Prayer for sick Child (with Bible Verses)

Lord, be merciful and gracious upon my child.

Please deliver my child from the clutches of sickness and death.

By faith, I decree my child is made whole.

By faith, I know my child will be healed from his troubles.

Lord, by faith, I command every spirit of sickness to be destroyed.

I pray for the Holy Spirit to take charge of the affairs of my child.

Because I know where your presence is, sickness cannot reside.

Thank you, Father, for healing my child.
