Top 7 Most Powerful Bible Verses You Should Use When Praying Against Sickness and Disease

In times of illness and disease, turning to the Word of God can provide comfort, strength, and a source of hope. The Bible contains numerous passages that speak to God's healing power and His desire for our well-being. When praying against sickness and disease, these verses can serve as powerful weapons to counter diseases. In this article, we explore seven impactful Bible verses to incorporate into your prayers when seeking healing and deliverance from sickness.

1. Isaiah 53:5

The bible tells us, "But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed." This verse from Isaiah reminds us of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the healing power found in His sacrifice. When Jesus went through tribulation and death on the cross, he paid for our healing and deliverance. Through his suffering, we now have authority over sickness and disease. As you pray, ask God that the sacrificial work of Christ on the cross will be at work in your life and by his wounds you are healed.

2. Psalm 103:2-3

The Bible says, "Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases. In this psalm, we are reminded that God is the one who not only forgives our sins but also heals our diseases. As you pray, remember that one of the benefits of God is to heal diseases, it is your heritage as his child, so ask Him to heal you as the word has confirmed that He is the one who heals.

3. Exodus 15:26

The Bible tells us, "He said, 'If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.'" Here the Bible admonishes us that one of the ways people come under sickness and disease is by a continuous life of sinning and iniquity. the punishment in turn becomes diseases. When you pray, ask god to forgive you for any sins that you have done, repent whole heartedly and choose to walk in righteousness then ask the Lord to heal you every infirmity.

4. Jeremiah 30:17

The Bible says, "But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,' declares the Lord." In times of illness, it is essential to remember that God is a God of restoration. This verse from Jeremiah assures us of His desire to bring healing and wholeness to our bodies. It is a promise God has made, when you pray, ask with confidence for the restoration of your health. God has exalted his word above his name and he will hasten his word to perform it. So ask for it.

5. James 5:14-15

"Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. This verse clearly highlights the importance of seeking prayer and support from the faith community. God has anointed men and women with the gift of healing, find an anointed man of God or church elders and ask them to lay hands on you, anoint you with oil and have faith, such a corporate prayer will surely produce potent results.

6. Matthew 8:17

"This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: 'He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases." In Matthew's Gospel, we see a reference to Isaiah's prophecy, affirming that Jesus took upon Himself our sicknesses and infirmities. When Jesus was being flogged and nailed on the cross, he carried all our sins including every sickness, he did this so that we would be totally free and immune from diseases. As you pray, declare that every sickness is legal because Jesus already paid for everything, ask for the restoration of health as your default heritage in Christ. Claim it by faith and understanding, you will surely be healed from that disease.

7. 3 John 1:2

The Bible says, "Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along. This verse tells us clearly how God is interested in our health, it shows us that good health is very vital. John was telling the believers how he wished good health of them not only spiritually but also physically. God is interested in our well-being both spiritually and physically, therefore, as you pray ask God to give you good health because it is his will and interest.

In conclusion, as you go through seasons of sickness and disease, do not ignore health practitioners. Seek help from the hospital as you pray for healing. The Bible tells us that Jesus gave us power and authority over sicknesses, therefore, the only way for this power to be at work in you is by receiving Jesus as your savior. Find a believing church and pray everyday in alignment to these scriptures. The word of God is alive and active, you will surely receive you healing.
