Having a sister is a blessing, as not all of us are blessed to have siblings in our lives. The best way we can show our gratitude for God’s blessing is to treat our sisters with the love and kindness that the Lord would show us. We love God by loving those around us (1 John 4:20-21) after all. Personally, when I think of love, I think of prayer. Every now and then I offer a healing prayer for my sister when I see she is in need of God’s grace.

Offering prayers for health and healing is a powerful form of love. Bible verses about healing remind us we have nothing to fear when God is always with us. Even when we are in need of faith healing, the Lord is still with us with His guiding presence. Here are 15 powerful healing prayers for your sister today.

May she remember You have already forgiven her, so that in due time, she may finally learn to forgive herself. Amen.
