There are many different times and situations in our life when we need healing. We may need physical, mental, and/or emotional healing.

Taking the time to talk to God about what is going on always helps! He wants to hear from His children because he longs to have an intimate relationship with us.

It is very reassuring to know that healing will happen – either right away, sometime later on, or when we arrive in heaven.

If you know someone who is going through a difficult time, it’s a great idea to say a prayer for them. Use these prayers for healing to guide your conversation with the Lord!
