These three simple healing prayers are perfect for anyone who has pain or sickness in their body and who seeks the restoration of comfort and of sound health. Each of these three simple healing prayers represents a different spiritual tradition, covering the Eastern, the Western and the New Age.
Eastern: Traditional Buddhist Healing Prayer
“Just as the soft rains fill the streams, pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans, so may the power of every moment of your goodness flow forth to awaken and heal all beings–those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.”
“By the power of every moment of your goodness, may your heart’s wishes be soon fulfilled as completely shining as the bright full moon, as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.”
“By the power of every moment of your goodness, may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way. May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.”
“For all in whose heart dwells respect, who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way, may your life prosper in the four blessings of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.”
Western: Traditional Christian Healing Prayer
“Lord, you invite all who are burdened to come to you. Allow your healing hand to heal me. Touch my soul with your compassion for others. Touch my heart with your courage and infinite love for all. Touch my mind with your wisdom, that my mouth may always proclaim your praise.”
“Teach me to reach out to You in my need, and help me to lead others to You by my example. Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength. Touch gently this life which you have created, now and forever.”
“Lord, look upon me with eyes of mercy, may your healing hand rest upon me, may your life-giving powers flow into every cell of my body and into the depths of my soul, cleansing, purifying, restoring me to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom.”
“You are the only source of health and healing, the spirit of calm and the central peace of this universe. Grant to me such a consciousness of your indwelling and surrounding presence that I may permit you to give me health and strength and peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
New Age: Sacral Chakra Prayer
(This healing prayer was written by Ambika Wauters)
“I love my life, I honor by Body, I treat myself respectfully! I feel the power of healing moving in and through me as I affirm my worth and honor my body! I trust my feelings and give them ample room for expression.”
“I lighten my body each time I feel well in myself. I am a creature of light each time I feel well in myself! I am grateful for the joy of being me. I receive pleasure and abundance with ever breath I take. Goodness, beauty and joy resonate with my soul, I am one with them.”
“Healing happens each time I rest, relax and enjoy myself! My body responds to thoughts of pure love and goodness. I heal any condition that affects me by knowing my body seeks balance and regeneration. I stimulate my immunity by knowing God lives in and through me!”
“I encourage healing each time I affirm my worth and honor my choices for love. I love who I am exactly as I am. There is nothing to change about the way I am. As I love and respect myself healing happens naturally!”
