Prayer Topic #11:
A Declaration of Healing for People Diagnosed with Cancer
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!
Faithful Father, we are thankful for Jesus, the Living Word, who is seated at Your right hand. We give thanks to You, Lord, for You are good. Your faithful love endures forever. Who can list Your glorious miracles, Lord? We give thanks to You, Jesus, for You took our sicknesses and removed our diseases. We give thanks to You for You personally carried our sins in Your body on the cross, and freed us from the bondage of death. By Your wounds, we were healed. Holy Spirit, we thank You for Your power that brings healing to our bodies and souls. Father, we will exalt You, our God and King, and praise Your Name forever and ever. Daily, we will praise You, for You are great and most worthy of praise! No one can measure Your greatness. We will meditate on Your majestic, glorious splendor and Your wonderful miracles. Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; we will proclaim Your greatness.
Glorious Father, You clothed us with skin and flesh, and You knit our bones and sinews together. You gave us life and showed us Your unfailing love. You are our Healer, and Your Word declares everyone who calls on Your Name will be saved. By the authority in Your Name, we decree that all forms and types of cancer within the bodies of Your people will no longer have dominion. We decree that no weapon formed against the spiritual and physical bodies of Your people will prosper. We cancel the devil’s assignments to destroy their bodies with carcinoma, sarcoma, leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and all forms of cancer, including the central nervous system. We declare that all malignant and abnormal cells are dying; they are no longer dividing and spreading through the blood or lymph systems. We trust in You, our God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing; therefore, we declare life and restoration into their bodies. By faith, we boldly command complete healing of the immune system in the bodies of Your children. Lord, we decree that You are their light and salvation, so they will not be afraid. You are their fortress, their protection from danger, so they will not tremble. We command peace to be still in their lives as they are being made whole by the miraculous power of God.
Today, I will cry out to the Lord as I pray in faith for:
Holy Spirit, please help those who are overcoming cancer to set their hope on You so that they will continue to obey God’s commands and not forget His glorious miracles. Continue to use all health professionals as instruments of healing; through the practice of medicine, prayer offered in faith, the laying on of hands and other means of healing that You have ordained. Give researchers divine insight into the causes, diagnoses and treatment of cancers. Strengthen those persons who are suffering with these conditions in their bodies, and help them to live out their faith in You. Increase their endurance and patience as they walk through the healing process. Fill them with Your presence and remind them that You will never fail or abandon them. Daily remind them that there is nothing too hard for God and with Him, everything is possible. Surround them with Your peace as they undergo chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or other cancer treatment methods. Touch the hearts of family members to provide an atmosphere of faith, hope and love. Please help to provide the adequate finances, transportation, food, clothing and shelter. Holy Spirit, teach us all how to live in Your Kingdom and to treat our bodies as Your temple; remind us to eat healthy, exercise and sleep enough hours so that our bodies fully recovers from the day’s activities.
Gracious God, forgive those who have been diagnosed with cancer for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive our nation for creating unhealthy conditions in our food supply and environment. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed). Holy Spirit, remind us all of those we need to forgive and help us 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 those who need healing not to yield to temptation but deliver them from the evil one.
All glory, majesty, power and authority belong to You before all time, in the present and beyond all time. You are the King of kings and Lord of all lords. Heaven is Your throne and the earth is Your footstool. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
