Prayer For Family Member With Cancer


You love ____ dearly. You know the plans you have for her, plans to prosper her and not to harm her, to give her hope and a future (Jer. 29:11). This is your will! We know that all things work together for her good (Rom. 8:28), though all things in themselves may not be good. Cancer is not your will for her! Rebellious cells in her body are not your design or plan. Yes, we live in a broken world, but you are working to fix what veers from your purposes. We join you in resisting and fighting this disruption in our friend's life! We thank you that you have already accomplished everything necessary for her complete healing. On the cross you became cursed, despised, rejected, sorrowful, and familiar with suffering as you took into and upon yourself all the brokenness of the world, including this disease. Now, by your own wounds she has been healed (Is. 53:3). When you submitted to death and rose from death to life you defeated the enemy. And if the Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is living in ______, then the Spirit now gives life to her mortal body (Rom. 8:11). We believe this and ask now that your healing would be expressed realtime in ______. Let this word be made flesh in her (John 1:14). When you were here on earth, Jesus you taught us to enforce your authority over nature. You commanded us to leverage your Name and command creation to be restored according to your original design (Luke 10). We take up this assignment now for ______. We command her cells to obey the Word and will of the Lord! We command her immune system to rise and fight cells that do not belong. We curse the distorted mutations of your wondrous design. We cut off, by our faith, words, and Jesus' authority, the capacity for cancer cells in _____'s body to spread. We say, Praise the Lord, ______! May all that is in you praise His name. And because it is impossible for rebellious cells to praise the Lord, they must be evicted now, and be replaced by good cells that can honor God! This is the mountain you instruct us to move by our words and faith. We don't ask you to move it; we tell it to move in your Name (Mark 11:23) because your words in our mouths are as your words in your mouth. And now we thank you ahead of the evidence for your promised and completed victory. We have asked and believed that we have (past tense) received this answer (Mark 11:24). This is already done! Along the way, grant _____ peace and joy. This seems impossible, but grace is there for her. Give her certainty now of your determined outcome! Give doctors wisdom to work with you (whether they acknowledge that or not). Give _____ wisdom to know what adjustments to make in her daily life. And taken together, your work with all human cooperation, let this healing come here and now! We pray this in Jesus' wonderful Name, because all your great promises are already Yes! in Jesus. And so in response we simply say,


Lord, my eternal relationship with You began from the moment I first believed. I don't need to work for it, and I don't need to hope it will come to pass someday. My life in You is a done deal. It is not based on my feelings, my struggles, or even this cancer. I have life only because I have You! In You, I live and move and have my very existence. Thank You for Your assurance that I am Your child and You will never leave or forsake me. Help me to comprehend what this new life in You actually means, through good times and bad, in health and in sickness. Thank You, Lord, the Giver of Life!

Heavenly father

I ask of you all mighty Lord to touch this child of yours, give him courage and strengthen him to fight this illness and disease, guide the doctors with your healing hand so that his body may be rid of all disease, pain and sickness. Give the family strength courage and much faith to cope during this difficult time.

We all need you now Lord to carry us thru this and comfort us that all will be well, your miraculous works will be done and healing for all will begin. Lord please forgive us our sins and trespasses, hear our prayers loudly, guide us, be with us and let your work be done as it be your will. I ask these and all things in the precious holy name of Jesus Christ our savior.

Father God, we humbly pray for all those who are fighting cancer. Give them the hope and courage they need each day. Comfort them in their pain and bless them with healing. Strengthen their family, friends, and caregivers. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Father, with you nothing is impossible. You are God of all flesh; we love you and we are confident that no situation is too hard for you. We come to you on behalf of this dear one seeking healing from cancer. God, Jesus Christ has fully paid the price by the stripes He took; we therefore are asking that the devourer gets off from this child of yours in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.

May God heal me, body and soul. May my pain cease, may my strength increase, may my fears be released, May blessings, love, and joy surround me. Amen.

Heavenly Father, Give all cancer fighters comfort when they are in pain. Lay your healing hand on all and remove every cancer cell so that they may be healed! Amen

God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down. Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer, for whom this intention is offered. May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
