Prayer for inner healing

We’ve all been hurt. Nobody lives a pain free life. But sometimes we try to ignore or bury the pain. Sooner or later though, you’ll have to deal with it. Or, you can let God.

Inner healing takes time. Don’t hurry the process, but don’t hold it back too long either. There’s no magic formula, and your heart may give you clues about when it’s time. Or maybe a strong experience brings deep wounds to the surface.

Sometimes the hurt comes from suppressed memories or experiences that were linked to your life. They can be direct or indirect, but either way, they hurt you.

When the time comes, find a quiet place. Sit for a moment in silence. Then let it all out. Cry out to the Lord and express all past and present pain. Expose your wounds to the light of God… and he will heal you. Jesus Christ is the Great Physician. His wounds and his blood provide the deep spiritual healing your soul desires.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;
save me, and I shall be saved;
for thou art my praise.

Jeremiah 17:14

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Mark 2:17


Oh heavenly Lord,

I’ve been hurt, seen hurt. Wounds and pain all around, can you heal it all? Is it possible?

Free me, oh Lord, of my fear and resistance. Help me to give myself into your gentle hands. Bring down the walls that separate my heart from your loving Spirit.

Let my trust in you grow. May I surrender it all to you as you alone restore my soul.

Christ shows me the way.

Heal me, cleanse me with the blood of the Lamb who frees me from sin and shame.

I am your beloved child. So here, now, I ask you, oh loving Lord, heal me of my deep wound and set me free again.

In the name of Jesus,

  1. Please pray for me and my marriage. I have been wounded deeply. There was adultery committed. My soul has been wounded. It’s been months and I am still not right. It had changed me

    Please pray for my soul mind heart and emotions to heal. As I have forgiven but I am not trusting

    • Dear Cathy,
      I’m so sorry to hear about your trials. How painful it must be for you. It’s not surprising that it is taking time for you to heal… not at all. Regaining trust takes time. What might help is to shift your focus a bit. Maybe you can focus on your own personal relationship with the Lord. Not that you forget about your marriage, but let the Lord work on you as an individual for a while. Just you and him for now. And let the healing take its course.

      Here’s a prayer for you…

      O blessed Lord… pour out your healing grace over Cathy… let her find comfort and rest in your presence… let her know that no matter what, she is a beloved daughter of God… show her that she can go to you and trust you when all else fails… give Cathy patience and wisdom during this time… send her your gentle healing for her wounds and her pain… let Cathy receive the healing and restoration she needs… pour out your mercy over the marriage… send your Spirit in abundance, O loving Lord… in Jesus name, Amen.

      I will be praying for you Cathy and for your marriage. God’s grace, peace and blessings to you.

    • Dear Cathy,
      I am so very sorry for your pain. You need to give yourself time to heal. It will take time for you to trust your husband. It has to be built again.
      Do you have a Pastor, Christian counselor that can walk through this with you both?
      With God’s loving guidance you can get through this. You feel changed now, but in time you will get back to feeling more like yourself. Our God is all powerful and He can bring complete healing to your heart and marriage. ❤️
      Don’t give up Cathy, keep praying for your marriage, your husband, your broken heart and cling to God. I will keep you in my prayers.❤️
      God bless you.

      Lord I pray that You would fill Cathy with Your perfect peace. Comfort her Lord as she walks through this valley, help her to feel Your loving presence. Bring healing to her broken heart, calm any fears or anxious thoughts, giving her a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Help her to always have a heart that is always forgiving, so she is not burdened with the bondage that unforgiveness brings. Give her strength, clarity, godly wisdom and discernment. I pray she keeps her mind on You and “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things” Philippians 4:8. Renew her mind when past, or troublesome thoughts come into her mind.
      I pray for their marriage, that You would protect it, bring healing to their hearts and restore their marriage. Help them to be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another even as Christ forgave us ( Ephesians 4:32).
      Thank you Lord for hearing and answering our prayers. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

  2. So thankful God hears our cries for inner healing and offers peace and healing as we fully place our faith and trust in Jesus. God bless you, Vincent, for sharing these prayers and words of hope.
