How to Pray for Healing: A Step-by-Step Guide for Believers in Yeshua

Prayer for healing holds significant importance in the faith of believers in Yeshua (Jesus Christ). It is a powerful spiritual practice that involves seeking divine intervention for physical, emotional, and spiritual restoration. This step-by-step guide is crafted specifically for those who follow the teachings of Yeshua and believe in the healing power of God through prayer.

1. Prepare Your Heart and Mind

Begin by finding a quiet place where you can pray without distractions. Take a few moments to center yourself and focus your thoughts on God's presence. You may want to read a passage from the Bible that speaks about healing, such as Psalm 103:2-4 or Isaiah 53:5, to center your mind on God's promises.

2. Express Your Faith in Yeshua

As you start your prayer, acknowledge your faith in Yeshua as healer and savior. Yeshua walked the earth and healed people who had all kinds of disease and he still has the power to heal today. Matthew 4:23 "Jesus went around the whole of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people".

3. Confess and Repent

Before praying for healing, it is important to confess any sins and ask for forgiveness. Repentance opens the way for God's mercy and healing to flow. Reflect on areas where you may need spiritual healing and ask God for cleansing and renewal.

4. Praise and Worship

Offer praise and worship to God for His goodness, faithfulness, and sovereignty. Sing hymns or worship songs that exalt God’s name and magnify His healing power. Praise creates an atmosphere conducive to experiencing God's presence and healing touch.

5. Present Your Request

Clearly articulate the need for healing, whether it's for yourself, a loved one, or someone in need. Be specific about the type of healing required—physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Trust in Yeshua's promise that "whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (Mark 11:24).

6. Pray with Authority

Invoke the authority given to believers in Yeshua to pray for healing. You can pray with words like, "In the name of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah), I command sickness to leave and healing to come forth," affirming your faith in Yeshua's power over sickness and disease.

7. Stand on God’s Promises

Claim and declare biblical promises related to healing, such as Jeremiah 30:17, which says, "I will restore you to health and heal your wounds." Pray these promises over yourself or the person you are praying for, believing in God's faithfulness to fulfill His Word.

8. Release Forgiveness

Forgive others and yourself as part of the healing process. Bitterness and unforgiveness can hinder prayers, so release any resentment and ask God to heal relationships and hearts.

9. Listen in Silence

After praying, take moments of silence to listen for God’s voice. Be open to His guidance, peace, and assurance. Sometimes, healing comes through a sense of comfort or a clear direction for further steps.

10. Thanksgiving and Gratitude

Conclude your prayer with thanksgiving and gratitude to God for hearing your prayers and for His healing touch. Thank Him for His love, mercy, and faithfulness, knowing that He is working for your good.

11. Continue in Faith

Maintain faith and trust in God's timing and sovereignty. Healing may occur instantly, gradually, or in unexpected ways, but continue to stand firm in your faith, believing in Yeshua's healing power.

12. Seek Medical Advice

While praying for healing, also consider seeking medical advice and treatment. God can work through doctors and medical professionals to bring about healing, so use wisdom in pursuing both prayer and practical steps.

13. Community Support

Engage with your church community or fellow believers for additional prayer support and encouragement. Share your prayer requests and testimonies of healing to build faith and solidarity.

14. Persist in Prayer

Continue to pray persistently for healing, especially in times of prolonged illness or challenges. Yeshua encouraged persistence in prayer, assuring that God hears and answers prayers offered in faith (Luke 18:1-8).

15. Trust God’s Plan

Ultimately, trust in God's plan and His perfect will. His ways are higher than ours, and He knows what is best for each situation. Even if healing does not come as expected, trust that God is working all things together for good. 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)


Praying for healing is a profound act of faith and submission to God's will for believers in Yeshua. By following this step-by-step guide, you can approach prayer with confidence, knowing that God hears and answers the prayers of His children. Whether you are praying for yourself, a loved one, or someone in need, may your faith in Yeshua's healing power bring comfort, strength, and hope in every circumstance.
