Pray for Health and Science

Health and Science – October 2019

(By Lilian Schmid, reviewed by Bjorn Schmid)

Introduction – Health

Health is not just physical (body), it includes spiritual, soul and body. If any part of these three areas is in ill health, it will affect other areas. 

“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” [1 Thessalonians 5:23]

Let us give praise and honour to God.

Lord of Glory, You alone are God. You are the First and the Last. It was Your hand that laid the foundations of the earth. Your right hand spread out the heavens above. When You call out the stars, they all appear in order. You alone can never die and You live in light so brilliant that no human can approach You. No human eye has ever seen You, nor ever will. All honour and power is Yours forever, Lord! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


The scripture teaches us that with the Spirit we can contact God, with the Soul we can recognise our emotions, our soul, and our intellect, and with our body we can feel our physical pain.

So who am I? 

I am a Spirit Being, I have a Soul, I have a Body.

The whole human being is affected by sin; therefore we need restoration in all aspects of our Human Being (Spirit, Soul & Body).

“But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.” [Isaiah 53:5]

Prayer Strategy

Prayer will bring about healing. God’s Word tells us so. Accepting this, Christians often pray for the sick and feel that their prayers are answered.

These verses below will show you how active God the Father really was in the area of divine healing when the Jewish people were walking in good stead with Him.

  1. “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” [Galatians 3:29]
  2. “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.” [Exodus 15:26]
  3. “And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.” [Deuteronomy 7:15]

  5. “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” [Psalm 107:20]
  6. “He also brought them out with silver and gold, and there was none feeble among His tribes.” [Psalm 105:37]
  7. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases …” [Psalm 103:2]
  8. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; not one of them is broken.” [Psalm 34:19]
  9. “For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. [Jeremiah 30:17]
  10. “O Lord my God, I cried out to You, and You have healed me.” [Psalm 30:2]
  11. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds … Great is our Lord, and mighty in power …” [Psalm 147:3]
  12. “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” [Philippians 4:19]
  13. “But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.” [Psalm 34:10]
  14. “For the Lord is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” [Psalm 84:11]
  15. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” [John 10:10]
