51 Healing Scriptures — Bible Verses For Strength

It would be nice to have healing scriptures from Bible verses when life feels like it's just too much. During trying times, remember to worship the Lord who heals your heart and calms your uncertainty. 

During this time, especially in the midst of a pandemic, there are many verses to turn to that speak about healing — such as this timely one, "Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven." —James 5:14-15.

With the last year taking a toll on everyone, many are searching for emotional, physical and spiritual health. There are many good prayers for healing, and reciting this one to yourself can make a difference in your peace of mind: "Lord, lift me up for Your blessings today. I pray that you will anoint me with strength and self-care today, tomorrow, and always. I pray that You will grace me with patience and wisdom. Amen."

People may be relying on their spirituality and religion more than ever. So, for passages about healing, look no further than this: “You restored me to health and let me live. Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love, you kept me from the pit of destruction; You have put all my sins behind your back.” —Isaiah 38:16-17

What the Bible says about healing our bodies has everything to do with being in your best health, using that energy to glorify God, praise him, and carry out His will. By not staying healthy and happy, you aren't praising Him.

In addition, praising Him means caring not only about yourself, but the others around you, most of whom are strangers. You pray for someone else's healing by seeking a connection to something bigger than yourself. For example, say, "Lord Jesus, thank you that you love, I ask that you would heal this disease, that you would have compassion and bring healing from all sickness. God, I thank you that [name of the person who needs healing] belongs to you and that you are in control. Amen."

The healing process won’t be easy nor will it happen overnight, but these beautiful quotes from scripture will help.
