Do you or someone you know have a life-threatening illness? Knowing how to pray in a crisis is critical. The most effective prayer is one that is based on the word of God. Below, is a Scripture-based prayer that thousands have prayed over themselves or those in their circle of concern with great results. I humbly submit it for your consideration.
I HAVE A LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS
Father, the enemy has come to steal my life, for that is what he does: steals, kills and destroys. But I trust in your word that you have come that I may have life, and have it to the full (John 10:10). Even though the doctor’s report is negative, I know that you have the last word regarding my life. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed (Psalms 139:16).
Forgive me, Father, for any door that I may have opened for this sickness by not being a good steward of my health. Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live (Psalms 119:77). Raise me up as a testimony of your great healing power. You are the same miracle working God yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
I take authority over every malfunctioning part of my body. I command each one to be made whole. I decree that I will not die before my appointed time, but will live to tell what you have done (Psalms 118:17). Therefore, I say on the authority of your word, that with the stripes of Jesus, I am healed (Isaiah 53:5)! In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
