This prayer for healing the sick is formulated to be recited while using Anglican prayer beads, it is a general prayer for Christians around the globe who are in need of healing and it can be adapted to one person or a family by substituting us/they with individual names.
God cares for each of us and in that caring he welcomes us into his presence. When reaching out to God in prayer be present in the moment with a positive attitude while focusing on those persons who you are praying for to recover from illness.
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John each recount the healing prayer and ministry Jesus accomplished. These historic accounts of healing encompass a variety of maladies from blindness, deafness, and epilepsy, to fever, blood issues and more. In each situation, Jesus used his direct authority to cure the sick as he focused on the healing of the whole person, mind, body, and spirit.
Jesus explained that the thoughts a person has are key to achieving overall good health, that having a positive attitude and spirit is essential for well-being. (Matthew 15:17-20; Matthew 9:21-22)
