A Prayer for Healing from Cancer

prayer1Lord, thank you that your spirit lives in the heart of every believer. Holy Spirit, take every thought captive and assume your rightful place as ruler over my thoughts and mind! Please help me to push all the cancer clutter and commotion aside so I can receive all that you have for me.

Lord, you made me in your image. Thank you that I am perfectly and wonderfully made and cancer was never your plan for my life. Lord, I break off the trauma caused by this diagnosis in Jesus name! I declare that the enemy no longer has the right torment me and that no weapon formed against me will prosper. I break off every lie and word curse that does not align with your truth:

I may have been told that I have cancer, but I declare that I have been healed by His wounds (1 Peter 2:24).

I may have been told the cancer is aggressive or worse, but I declare that nothing is impossible for You (Luke 1:37).

My doctor may have predicted a discouraging prognosis or a limited life span, but I declare that He will satisfy me with a long life (Psalm 91:15-16).
Lord, when I pray the prayer you taught us, I pray that your will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven. Lord, there is no cancer in heaven so there can be no cancer here! I call heaven into this place and release healing over my body, soul, and spirit, in Jesus name.

In the name of Jesus, I speak to the cancer cells that have invaded my body. I curse them and command them to die. Lord, please bring my immune systems, cells, and all body organs back into perfect alignment with your original plan.

In Jesus name, I release my body from the effects of this cancer, today and forever. Thank you Lord, that you are Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals ALL our diseases. Amen.

    I lost my husband to gastric cancer earlier this year and my sister has recently been diagnosed with stage iv lymphoma. I am struggling to maintain my faith in God and to continue to believe that he is a merciful God.

      Mo, I am so sorry to hear this news and my heart breaks for you. I know from experience the deep grief that comes with such a terrible loss, especially when the promises of God don’t seem to line up with your reality. I wish I could give you an explanation, but I can’t. I can only say that God is grieving with you. The enemy will steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) until Jesus comes back again to fully bring the Kingdom to earth. In the meantime, I pray that He will be your Comforter, your Peace, and the Lover of your soul. Bless you.
