A Prayer of Healing and Deliverance for Those Who are Battling Cancer
Luke 1:47-55, John 16:1-15
Reflections of the Heart:
This is the ______ day of the Omer. “We praise You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by Jesus Christ, our eternal Redeemer and Savior, and commanded us to count the Omer. By faith, we wait with joyful hearts to celebrate the sending of Your Holy Spirit.”
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. 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.
Magnificent Father, 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. By faith, we boldly command complete healing of the immune system in the bodies of Your children. Lord, we command peace to be still in their lives as they are being made whole by the miraculous power of God.
Holy Spirit, 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 who are suffering with cancer, and help them to walk by faith. Fill them with Your presence and remind them that You will never fail or abandon them. 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.
Today, I will cry out to the Lord as I pray in faith for (list the name(s):
Loving Father, forgive us for doubting Your love and power to heal our bodies. Forgive us for at times being irresponsible with our health. Forgive us for not acknowledging the abundance of Your healing virtue, grace and mercy. Forgive us for ungodly behavior including: unforgiveness, bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Forgive our nation for creating unhealthy conditions in our food supply and environment. Have mercy upon us all according to Your Word. 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 are battling cancer 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 lords. Heaven is Your throne and the earth is Your footstool. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
