A God of Compassion

Prayers for healing and wholeness


 Prayers for healingOver 100 prayers on a theme of healing and wholeness - for the individual and also for many situations and natural disasters which affect us and others in this world.

This has been a labour of love, as I believe that we have a God who heals, not only for individuals and their particular ailments, but in nations, situations of war and conflict, and at times of disaster.

What is a prayer?

I believe the simplest answer is that prayer is a conversation between an individual and God. Conversations can be long or short.

In this collection you will find both. Some prayers are just two lines long. Is that cheating? No, because prayer is the expression of a thought - be it repentance, praise or petition. Sometimes these thoughts can be encapsulated in just a few words.

This book is offered as a collection of prayers about healing. For many that means healing from the various ailments and diseases that afflict so many of us. But healing has a much broader meaning when we are thinking about our prayer life.

We might pray for the healing of physical and spiritual relationships that have broken down. In the wider context we can pray for reconciliation between peoples and nations and for healing of the earth and its people after natural or man-made disaster.

The majority of the 100 or so prayers in this book are not on the website. Writing and selling these books of prayers is one way in which I can continue this ministry and continue to increase the resources within it.




'If my people… will humble

'He (God) will not let you be
tempted beyond what you can bear'

'Come to me, all you who are
weary and burdened …'

‘Is any one of you sick?...’

‘Those who hope in the Lord will
renew their strength..’
