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.

Powerful Healing Prayer for sick Child (with Bible Verses)

Heavenly Father, I bow before you with a heart full of gratitude. Each day, you fill my life with blessings. For the breath of life, for each dawn that breaks, I say thank you. As David said in Psalm 118:24, “This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Yet, I am far from perfect. I stray, I falter. But Father, your love never fails. Like the Prodigal Son, you welcome me back (Luke 15:11-32). Thank you for your mercy.

Just as I need your forgiveness, so does my little one. They might stumble, but you’re there to catch them. As in Matthew 18:14, you’re not willing that any little ones should perish.

Almighty God, you know our plight. You see my child, ailing, and it breaks my heart. Yet, I trust you. You, who calmed the storm (Mark 4:35-41), can surely soothe my child’s suffering.

Lord, your power is beyond understanding. Nothing is beyond your reach. Today, I ask for that power. Shield my child from the wicked plans of the enemy. As in Psalm 91:11, send your angels to guard them in all their ways.

Evil lurks in hidden corners. But with you, Lord, we are safe. You see what we don’t. In the shadow of your wings, we take refuge (Psalm 17:8). Keep my child safe, under the precious blood of Christ.

My greatest fear is to outlive my child. But your promises are unbreakable. You will restore health to my child (Jeremiah 30:17). I trust in you, Lord.

You are our rock, our fortress, our deliverer (Psalm 18:2). Please grant me strength. I need it to support my child. To carry them through this ordeal.

Today, Lord, I declare victory. Not my victory, but yours. Your healing hand will restore my child. As in Isaiah 53:5, by your wounds, my child is healed. I believe, Father. Amen.

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 Heavenly Father,

In awe, I stand before You. Your glory and power, unmatched. With a humble heart, I bring forth my plea.

My child, my beloved, is sick.

You, the Great Healer, know this. The weight of my worries, my silent cries, are no secret to You. “Before they call I will answer,” You promise in Isaiah 65:24.

Father, I hold onto that promise.

I trust in You, the Unchanging One. My child, struggling and weak, needs Your healing touch. In Your infinite wisdom, You ask, “Is anyone among you sick?” (James 5:14). Yes, Lord, I reply.

My child, my precious one, needs You.

In this time of hardship, I seek You. For You, and only You, can renew my child. You, the Almighty, the Breath of Life, are our refuge.

And so, I implore You.

Descend in Your mercy, Father. Grant my child the miracle of Your healing, as You promised in Exodus 15:26, “For I am the Lord, who heals you.”

Your words bring hope, Almighty.

My child’s strength, stolen by sickness, can be restored by You. Let my child feast on the bread of healing, as You declared in Matthew 15:26, for healing is the children’s bread.

Father, Your promises hold true.

In this storm, You are our Anchor. Amidst this pain, You are our Comforter. Please, set my child free from sickness, just as You liberated the Israelites from bondage.

You are our Deliverer, after all.

As I pray, I already feel a wave of gratitude. I thank You, God, the Hearer of Prayers, the Source of every good thing. My heart rejoices, for I know You’ve heard my plea.

Amen, my King, amen.

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)

Father in the heavens, you are our Shield and Fortress. Today, I kneel before you with a plea. A plea wrapped in a parent’s love. It’s for my child, your beloved creation.

Lord, you’re all-powerful. There is nothing that escapes your divine reach. No ailment is too strong for your healing. This truth resonates in the Psalmist’s words, “Psalm 147:3. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Lord, our faith in you is rock-solid. We believe in your power to cure all diseases. Your touch, we know, is all it takes to mend the broken. You said, “Jeremiah 30:17. I will restore you to health and heal your wounds.”

Father, today we confront illness in your name. We refuse to bow to its shadows. Your Word has equipped us to be bold. To say to sickness, “Enough is enough!”

Today, we declare an end to our child’s pain. We replace tears with joy. Sadness with laughter. Like David declared in Psalm 30:2, “Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.” We too, cry out to you, Lord.

In your name, we reject the prospect of loss. Our child will not be a casualty of sickness. We stand firm on the promise in Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.”

Almighty God, we request your healing touch. Let it cascade upon our child. Let it restore vitality to the body and peace to the soul.

We look to you, our Lord and Saviour, with gratitude. For you hear our pleas. You mend our hearts. Your love is our refuge, our sanctuary in tumultuous times. As we read in Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Thank you, Lord, for you are our Healer. Our Provider. Our Hope. You’re the Answer to our prayers. So we rest in your love, secure in your promises, and trust in your timing. For “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”

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)

Dear Father, hear our humble prayer. Your mercy is our solace, and we seek it for our precious child. You, who calmed the stormy sea with a word, bring peace to our hearts.

We need Your healing, Almighty One. Please liberate our child from sickness, just as you freed the Israelites from slavery. Strengthen them, and restore their joy.

Your promise in Jeremiah 30:17 gives us hope: “I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds.” On this promise, we make a declaration. We see our child whole again. Faith fuels our words, and faith knows no bounds.

We hold onto Your word, Lord, that speaks life and healing. We believe in complete recovery, as stated in Isaiah 53:5, “by His wounds we are healed.” We claim this truth for our child, Lord.

By faith, we command illness to leave. You told us in Luke 10:19, “I have given you authority… to overcome all the power of the enemy.” Our faith crushes the enemy of sickness.

Lord, may Your Spirit guide our child. We echo David’s prayer in Psalm 31:3, “for the sake of Your name, lead and guide me.” Let Your Holy Spirit bring peace and comfort.

We know Your presence is a shield, a fortress. When you walked with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace, they remained unscathed. In Your presence, our child is protected.

We end this prayer with a grateful heart, as said in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “give thanks in all circumstances.” We thank You, Father, for restoring our child’s health.

In Your name, we pray, Amen.
