If you have a friend or loved one who is struggling with an illness, these prayers can help them heal.

Short Catholic Prayer For Healing

Prayer for healing is very important. You may want to be healed from a sickness or injury, or you may want someone else to be healed. There are many prayers in the Bible and catholic church that can help you with your needs. For example, in the Book of Acts we read about how Peter was sick and asked Jesus to heal him (Acts 3:1-10). Also, one time Jesus told two blind men that “their eyes were opened” when he touched them on their eyes and then gave them some clay and told them to go wash themselves in it (John 9:1-12).

Another example of this is when Paul was bitten by a poisonous snake but didn’t die because he prayed God would save him from death (Acts 28). Although there are many other examples throughout history where people have been healed through faith in God’s power; these three examples show us how important prayer can be when asking for healing.

Blessed Oil for Healing

Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. It reminds us that we are anointed by God with grace and power to live lives of holiness, forgiveness, and love.

Oil is used in the Catholic Church for healing. In fact, Catholics believe that when consecrated by a priest or bishop as holy oil it becomes one of the sacraments—a visible sign of God’s grace working in our lives.

You can purchase blessed olive oil at your local Catholic bookstore or online from Amazon. There are several brands available including Sacred Oils, who sells anointing oils for $8-$12 per bottle (depending on size). If you want to save money but still want a quality product from a trusted manufacturer then try out this Blessed Oil from St Severus Orthodox Church which sells for $7 per ounce (2 ounces per bottle).
