Scriptures of blessing for your health

When praying for healing or protection from symptoms I want to pray words from the Bible, because they are anointed by God, and they feed my faith.   For this reason, I compiled these scriptures in the form of a confession.  I hope they will be helpful to you, too.

If you are praying for health for a particular part of your body, words in bold may be replaced with that body part as you are confessing these scriptures. The words in bold that are also italicized from the 2nd to last scripture may be replaced with an activity that is difficult for you right now related to the body part you are lifting up. For example, if I am praying for my voice I will replace all the bold words with “my voice” and the italicized words with “sing” and “talk”.

All of these scriptures are in essence out of context, so I encourage you to first look up each individual scripture in the Bible and read it in context so that you understand what each one means and how it relates to you.

God, You formed my inward parts; you wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-14). I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. My body shall rest and confidently dwell in safety (Psalm 16:8&9). Great shall be my peace and undisturbed composure. I will be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for I shall not fear (Isaiah 54:13-14). No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is our vindication from Him (Isaiah 54:17). We will serve the Lord our God and He will bless our food and our water. He will remove sickness from among us (Exodus 23:25). Satan has fallen like lightning from Heaven, and Jesus has given his disciples authority over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm me. (Luke 10:18-19). I will have regard for the helpless and the Lord will protect me. He will restore me to health (Psalm 41:1-3). Jesus has borne my griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses). The punishment that brought me peace was upon Him, and by His wounds I am healed (Isaiah 53:4 & 5b). As I hope in the Lord I will gain new strength. I will soar on wings like eagles; I will run and not get tired, I will walk and not become weary (Isaiah 40:31).  I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength (Phil. 4:13).
