Padre Pio’s prayer for healing
Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me. Thank you for sending your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, into the world to save and set me free. I trust in Your strength and grace that supports and heals me. Beloved Father, touch me now with your healing hands, for I believe that it is Your will that I be healthy in body, mind, soul and spirit.
Cover me with the most precious blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, from the top of my head to my feet. Take out what shouldn’t be in me. Heal unhealthy and abnormal cells. It opens blocked arteries and veins and restores and repairs any damage. Remove all inflammations and wash away infections with the power of the precious blood of Jesus. Let the fire of Your healing love pass through my entire body to heal it so that it functions as You created it. Touch both my mind and my feelings, even the deepest corners of my heart.
Fill me with your presence, love, joy and peace and draw me even closer to you in every moment of my life. Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit and empower me to do all I can so that my life brings glory and honor to your holy name. For this I ask you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
