I’m just getting over a nasty cold when the kids start throwing up! I’m so sick of being sick, of having kids that are sick. I thought I’d put together a list of healing scriptures to meditate on. Do you have a favorite health or healing scripture? How about a way that you show kindness to yourself or others when you or they aren’t feeling well? Please share!
I am the Lord, the one who heals you.
I cried to you for help, O Lord my God, and you healed me;
The Lord will help them when they are sick and will restore them to health.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
Thoughtless words can wound as deeply as any sword, but wisely spoken words can heal.
Kind words are like honey—sweet to the taste and good for your health.
Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
[ Jeremiah Prays for Deliverance ] Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; Save me, and I shall be saved, For You are my praise.
Behold, I will bring it health and healing; I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.
But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
[ The Compassion of Jesus ] Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
