A Prayer of Healing for Persons Diagnosed with Cancer

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 42, Isaiah 53:4-5


Reflections of the Heart: 


Jesus is the same today, yesterday, and forever! In Mark 16:17-18 (NLT), Jesus said, “These signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick and heal them.” Therefore, as believers, let us do what Jesus did!


Scriptural Prayer:


Heavenly Father, we thank You for watching over those persons who have been diagnosed with cancer. Thank You for Your healing power. Thank You, Lord, for declaring us overcomers by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony. Lord, we proclaim Your righteousness and praise all the day long. Your faithful love endures forever and Your mercies never cease. Great is Your faithfulness. Who can compare to You? We exalt Your Holy and Righteous Name. You are the Holy One of Israel who sent Jesus, our Lord and Savior, to redeem all humankind from the curse of the law of sin and death. 


Awesome Father, Your thoughts towards us are of peace and not evil, to give us a future and a hope. We believe that it is Your will that we live free from all diseases. Lord, by the authority given to us, we declare that the infirmity of cancer with its many forms and common types – bladder, breast, colon and rectal, endometrial, leukemia, lung, melanoma, pancreatic, prostate, skin, thyroid and other types are destroyed, in Jesus’ Name. We command the primary abnormally deformed cell to die at its root and the metastasizing cells to cease from spreading throughout the body, especially to the lungs, bones, liver, brain and lymphatic system. We command the increased production of healthy cells to destroy renegade cells. Lord, we declare that our members who have been diagnosed with cancer will not die; but live to tell what You have done. Lord, as a king of the King and a lord of the Lord, I command the Kingdom domain of healing to manifest in the body of (name the person(s) who need healing from cancer). I declare that supernatural healing is flowing throughout his/her body, in Jesus Name.

Holy Spirit, please reveal the cure for cancer. We ask You to increase the wisdom and knowledge of medical researchers as they perform cancer studies. We ask You to strengthen those persons who are being treated for cancer. Increase their endurance and patience as they undergo x-rays, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, biological therapy, hormone therapy, surgery, cryosurgery and other procedures. Holy Spirit, comfort and strengthen their family members. Help their family members to walk in love, peace, patience and faith. Please protect those who have not been touched by cancer. Destroy any triggers that would create cancerous cells in our bodies. Lord, help us to break poor eating and sleeping habits. Remind us to exercise, eat healthy and get enough sleep. Touch our society to promote healthy lifestyle practices.

Loving Father, we ask You to forgive the sins of those diagnosed with cancer. Forgive us all for unhealthy lifestyles and habits. Forgive us for not being good stewards of neither our bodies nor our children’s. Forgive us for holding grudges, unforgiveness, resentment, and embedded anger. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind those who have been diagnosed with cancer to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He reveals them, say, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.) 

Holy Spirit, help all of us not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one. 

Triumphant Lord, You are our Redeemer. You are the Lord who makes all things. You stretched out the heavens all alone and You spread abroad the earth. Lord, forever Your Word is settled in heaven. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
