Prayer for healing

"Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." (James 5:14-16)
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus,
I thank You for the living Word, and for Your promises. Through faith in Christ I have been declared righteous before You! Your Word says that if Your spirit dwells in me, that You will also give life to my mortal body through the Spirit of Jesus (Romans 8:11). I claim this Word as mine right now, and take a hold of it by faith in the Son of God!
Lord, I do not believe it is Your will for Your children to be sick, for Christ prayed that "Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) It is not Your will that there be any sick in Heaven, therefore it cannot be Your will for the righteous to remain sick here.
Your Word declares that my body is a member of Christ (1 Corinthians 6:15). If I am a member of Christ, surly sickness and disease are not mine because they are not of Him, therefore I refuse them in Jesus' name!
Satan, according to God’s Word anything is possible to those who believe. I declare by faith that my body is healed both externally and internally from head to toe. I declare this healing in the name of Jesus and I cast you down Satan. You have no dominion or authority over my body or life!
I know that death and life are in the power of the tongue, and I choose life and healing! Lord I receive your Word by faith and stand under the protection of the 91 Psalm: I dwell in the secret place of the most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; and in Him will I trust.
Surely He shall deliver me from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover me with His feathers, and under His wings shall I trust: His truth shall be my shield and buckler. I will not be afraid of any terror at night; or any arrows that fly by day; or any pestilence that walks in darkness; or any destruction that was during the day. A thousand shall fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand; but nothing evil shall come near me. Only with my eyes shall I behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Lord, I now make you my habitation. According to your Word, because I have made You my habitation, my refuge, no evil shall fall upon me, neither shall any plague come near my dwelling. I trust that you will give your angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. I trust that they shall bear me up in their hands, so that I will not strike my foot against a stone. According to Your Word I will tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon will I trample under my feet.
Your Word says that if I love You, You will deliver me: You will set me on high, because I have known Your name. I will call upon You, and You said You’ll answer me. I receive dear Lord, that You will be with me in trouble; and will deliver me!
I put on the whole armor of God! I put on the breastplate of righteousness! I put on the helmet of salvation! My loins are girt about with truth! I take up the shield of faith! My feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace and I unsheathe the sword of the spirit which is the Word of the living God!
I shall wear this armor forever, and will not let my guard down anymore! Satan, God is in control of my life, I have moved from defeat into Victory, I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me, and I am free of sickness and am delivered from disease!
In the mighty name of Jesus I pray and declare these things,
Amen."Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 18:18)
