Praying for Healing and Miracles in the Holy Lands of Christ, our Lord

That God holds the power of healing and performing miracles has been well-documented throughout the Bible. But when things don’t happen the way we would have liked them to happen, it doesn’t mean God hasn’t answered your prayer. It just means that we’ve failed to listen to him. Everything happens for a reason. Even if it seems massively unfair to our petty senses. The scope of God’s work is vast and literally, spans all of creation. We cannot command or control his wishes. But we can choose how we behave, live, and pray. That is the fundamental lesson that Christians have to realize. That we live to spread love, kindness, goodness, and faith.

Nevertheless, if pain, grief, depression, illness, loss, or disaster is beyond what you can physically bear, God will grant you relief should you ask for it.

According to the Book of Psalms, 6:2-4:

“Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in deep anguish. How long, Lord, how long? Turn, Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.”

Here’s a small prayer for healing, inspired from the psalms, and many theologians who have come after, experienced the joy of living and praying in Christ, and penned down their thoughts in writing.

O Loving Father, You have blessed us by sending your only son, our Lord Jesus Christ, to suffer and be sacrificed for our sins. I believe in Jesus, and am whole-heartedly prepared to forgive those who have sinned against me as I expect you to forgive me for my sins. I’m pained to say that my grief, my illness, and my suffering, are beyond what I can bear. I surrender myself to you, thus, O healer of sin, and forgiver of mortal pelf. Please help me overcome my weaknesses, take away my pain by replacing it with your eternal hope and joy from the kingdom beyond. Please help heal my loved ones. Please help end violence and injustice in this world. May the healers and the leaders of this world, be moved to act. Through the most holy, Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, I pray for these wishes to come true. May the Lord hear our prayers. Amen.

The same can be used as a prayer for a miracle – urgent or otherwise. Here, in the holy lands, the Salvation Garden praying community continues to pray steadfastly for relief from illness, rescue from violence, and peace on earth. We hope that God will listen to our prayers in the lands and churches where Jesus Christ himself lived, preached his glorious ministry, performed miracles, healed the sick, and practiced a life of untiring love and fortitude. He also suffered for it, under cruel and relentless regimes, was crucified, died, and was buried. On the third day, he rose again and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

Like the Psalms, 107:19-20 tell us:

“Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them.”

We can carry your prayer requests for respite from pain and sickness, and prayers for miracles, to the holiest churches and sites within the Holy Lands. We only ask that you help us make this delegation possible by donating towards making arrangements, including travel and security. May the Lord hear our Prayers. Amen.
