Bible Verses For The Sick: 20 Comforting Scripture Quotes

by Pamela Rose Williams · Print Print · Email Email

Since the time in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve disobeyed God there has been sickness on earth. Sometimes we suffer from a common cold virus or maybe we are sick with a more serious disease. Regardless of the type of sickness; there are many Bible verses for the sick. Here are just 20 comforting scriptures that I hope brighten your day or the day of a loved one who is sick.

God Promised and Healed Before; He can do it Again

Old Testament

Bible Verses For The SickDeuteronomy 7:15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you.

Exodus 23:25 You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you.

Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Psalms 105:37 (KJV) He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

Psalms 107:20 He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.

Jeremiah 30:17 For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast:‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’

New Testament

Matthew 12:15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all

Matthew 14:14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Acts 10:37-38 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

God is the One who Heals

We must remember that when we pray for the sick we are offering intercessory prayer to God. However, God is still the Master Healer and the Great Physician and He will or will not heal those whom He will or will not heal. Listen the the song below as you continue to read the rest of the verses here, you will be blessed by Don Moen as he sings “Heal me O Lord”.

Sometimes God Brings us Down to Get our Attention

Jonah 1:17; 2:1; 2:10 17Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights… 2:1Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly… 2:10And the LORD spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.

John 11:41-45 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42  I knew that you always hear me, but I said this on account of the people standing around, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” 44  The man who had died came out, his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.” 45  Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him,

Acts 9:1-9 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do.” The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one. Saul rose from the ground, and although his eyes were opened, he saw nothing. So they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And for three days he was without sight, and neither ate nor drank.

2 Corinthians 1:8-11 For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. 10  He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again. 11  You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.

Sometimes He Heals the Sick through the Gifts and Prayers of Others

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Mark 16:15 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

Acts 14:3 Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

Acts 28:8 And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

James 5:15-16 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

My wife has been suffering from a liver condition (PBC) for almost 15 years now. It’s deteriorated gradually over time. She means the world to me. I don’t think I could live without her. She has been in hospital for around 3 weeks now, due to liver complications. Days ago she had her gallbladder removed which following blood tests have shown her liver has further deteriorated since the procedure. I am struggling to cope like never before. I have been secretly sleeping in my car parked underneath the hospital (it’s the closest I can be at night)because I struggle to breath when I am far from her. Please god don’t take her way from me. You finally listened and spoke to me during her operation and I need you to hold her hand and mine once again. You and I know I did not deserve it as I have let you and I down previously with my broken promise. But you have such amazing grace you game me another opportunity which I did not deserve. For that I will praise you and forever will be grateful, so will share your mirical you preformed.

While my wife was in surgery, I cried and prayed. I offered my life to take inorder to spare my wife. (I am Sory if it is wrong and makes The Lord disappointed for such request). But I am desperate and The Lord knows it. Further to my prayers for God to hold my wife’s hand while she was in surgery and give me strength for my wife’s sake, I asked God to please let her live so she can see out her biggest dream/wish. That is to become a grandmother one day and hold her grandchild. Our son and daughter law have been married 2 years and couldn’t have children which left my wife and I heart broken. Then about 2pm the surgeon rang me to say the operation went very good and she will soon be taken to recovery which I thanked The Lord. Then moments after that phone call, my our son and daughter inlaw broke some news that she is pregnant and we are going to be grandparents. This is no coincidence God is amazing and answered exactly what I asked for. Even though I’ve been bad and did not deserve it.

I now ask for anyone that reads this message of mine to believe. I would also ask to help me pray for my wife to get over this next hurdle. I know God will listen to me again, but I’m feeling weak and lost with words (as you could probably see in this letter) and I need as much as support. God bless you all.

Bill, God hears our prayers and knows the desires of our heart. You have humbled yourself and prayed so earnestly from your heart and God honors that. I stand with you in prayer and believe that your wife will be healed! I believe that God is already working in this healing and has provided a special sign with the news of your grandbaby I have a strong feeling that your wife is going to be a perfect example of a wonderful Grandma that loves and spoils this precious gift. I think you will also get in on that spoiling thing too! God bless you!

i am feeling sick, with nausea and runny nose, i also feel fatigue pray that i will feel better. i am usually freak out about illneses and diseases cause i feel like i am gonna die but i have to trust in God’s word oh how hard it is for me and pray also that i will rely on God’s word instead of my thoughts or feelings.

I hope that Pam doesn’t mind but sorry replying so late Genesis. You are on the right track that trust in God is equal to faith in God and you are not alone my friend. I tend to rely on my own instincts and abilities instead of on God’s Word and even though I too know, which is more dependable, feelings or God’ Word, I still make bad choices so know that I care and will pray for you my friend.

Please I ask that someone will pray for my dad. I recently met up with him after 20 something years of not seeing each other. I met up with him in April of this year. I time together has been wonderfully he has helped me with my depression and has been the mos beautiful man I have ever met. His health though is bad. The doctors are saying he does not have that much time to live since he has heart congestive failure. Now they are saying his liver and kidneys are bad too. I do believe the meds are making him worse. I am blessed they are able to watch over and take care of him, but I know he is lonely and scared. I told myself if I had another heart I would give it to him. I don’t know what I would do without my dad. He has taught me love, unconditional love at that. I was planning on sending some elders from my church to pray for him too. I hope he stays at the hospital he is at now because the last time I tried to do it they moved him. The elders were not able to get to him. I don’t know what to do. Please God give him another chance at life and for us to become closer. I need my dad in my life. Please pray for my sister too she is having panic attacks and she broke out bad on her skin. She is trying to get help for herself and the hospital she is at has her in seclusion. I know she feels lonely too. She recently went through a miscarriage and has been going through it since the last 3 years. Only you God can help these important people in my life. Just show what to do so I can know. I am sad. I love you God in Jesus Name.

my dad is seriously sick with blood cancer
he has been admitted to hospital several times in the past 2 weeks
doctors says he has 3-4 months left in him and thats about it
sometimes i pray and sometimes i feel weak and wonder if God listens to the prayers and other times i even wonder if God exists
my dad has been a believer his entire life i wonder why this happens
i know doubting God is wrong but at the end am human and under stress
i got married recently and it broke my heart when my dad said i wish i see a grandchild that says my name
sometimes i wonder if God promises in the bible are true
i have never doubted God through my life as i did in this crises as things get worse and i lose hope more and more
please pray for us as we need it through those dark days and the tough ones coming especially for him and for my weakness

Hello Migx…will pray and hope others pray for your dad. Why does this happen? Read the book of Job. We cannot know why certain things happen. Why did God allow the innocent Jesus to suffer who knew had sinned? That was not fair to Jesus but for us, the only way to eternal life. Don’t doubt God. Don’t you think your dad would be indescribably joyful for all eternity with Jesus?

Pamela Rose Williams September 16, 2014 at 12:02 pm

Hi migx,

I want to echo what my brother Jack says. Definitely read the book of Job. You will see how God blessed Job for his obedience even in the most desperate of times. God hears you, He has not left you … don’t leave Him, He loves you and knows how your heart is hurting right now. We can have victory in Jesus. I will pray for you as you watch your Dad suffer through this illness. I will pray that he has peace and comfort and that you will always know God’s joy regardless of what valley of life you are in.

May I ask for some prayers please? My ex husband was given 4-6 months to live about 2 months ago. A little over 2 weeks ago he was Baptized. While at home, he took a fall and broke his hip. He has been in the hospital since that fall and has now been moved to the hospice branch of the hospital.

He is the father of my 2 daughters. He is an alcoholic and abusive, physically, verbally and emotionally. One daughter has been staying with him, the other daughter has wanted nothing to do with him. They have a very difficult relationship.

Youngest daughter has found it very difficult to understand how I could have supported her father and been a witness to his Baptism as well as visiting him in the hospital. She has not yet come to the stage of being able to forgive her father for the abuse he put on her. I have forgiven him, a long time ago as it was much to heavy to continue carrying the weight of the hatred and anger for his actions.

I would so appreciate any prayers for him so that he may pass in a calm and painless manner, and for my daughters who have a lot of healing to do because of what he has done to them and to me. I don’t want them to have any regrets after he passes, I just hope they can feel peace in their hearts.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and to send prayers. God Bless You!

Hello Seara…I don’t know if the author is still active on this but please know that I will pray for your situation. what a godly woman you are…to pray for your husband after all he did….wow, you are truly a woman after God’s own heart.

Seara October 20, 2014 at 6:50 pm

Thank you very much for your prayers Mr. Wellman. I really appreciate you for praying for our family situation.

I’m trying to do what Jesus would have done. For all the bad that my ex husband did, there was still good about him as well. I think the best example of that was when my mom was dying, she was at home and I was doing my best to take care of her, raise an almost 4 yr old daughter, work outside the home and it was just a mess. I was so stressed out. My ex stepped up to the plate many times to help bathe my mom (she was pretty much bed ridden at this time), change her bedding, take time to talk with her and he spent time with our child with her as well. That showed me he did have a heart and I’ll hold those memories forever in my heart.

How could I not forgive a human being for being just that, human? Please know that my forgiveness took many years to get to. It certainly didn’t happen overnight. I’m thankful I got to it though as it has opened my heart to many other situations in which I needed to forgive someone…once you start down that road, it’s becomes easier and easier to do!

I can only hope that when it comes my time, those I have inadvertently hurt will find it in their hearts to forgive me as well. Again, Thank You and Bless You!

Your testimony to Christ being in you is rock solid my friend. I am amazed that this type of love, being supernatural and from God is displayed but not as often as I have seen it here in you. You are never more like God than when you forgive those who the world could never do. You can certainly call me Jack, Pastor, or whatever. Thanks for your giving others hope.

Seara October 24, 2014 at 11:43 am

Pastor Jack 😉

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am always trying to give hope to others that I come in contact with. I remember what it was like when I didn’t feel much hope for myself (a very long time ago). It’s not a good feeling at all. Sometimes hope can come in the form of a smile, simply opening a door for someone, letting someone in front of you at the register who is only buying 2 items when I’ve got 20. I love the fact that hope can be shown in small ways but mean such big things to someone.

I received a call from my youngest daughter, very early yesterday morning, she needed some help and support. It is very difficult for me to rise early and not have a couple of hours to gather myself up for the day. But I quickly dressed and headed out the door to help her. She is the one who is struggling the most with her feelings for her father. After the crisis was solved, later on in the evening, she called me again. This is the call that warmed my heart as she called to thank me again for helping her out. WOW!!! I very very rarely receive calls from her in this regard. I felt so blessed and appreciated at that moment. For her to actually take a step towards being thankful and actually telling me is huge. So, maybe the things I am doing are helping her in some way. (She is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder)

Even though the events of the day took it’s toll on my physically, all in all, it was a very good day!

I truly love to be able to express God’s love through me towards others. It fills me up to overflowing and I just can’t help but share it. While I am still human and sometimes have difficulties with my emotions, I will always do my best to move forward in love and forgiveness.

I’m off to the hospital now. I hope everyone has a blessed day.

May I ask for some prayers for a dear friend (Nancy Cristina de Leon) 43 years old, who is now suffering from metastatic breast cancer. We need your prayers for her to get well… I am hoping that you will help me in praying for her fast recovery.

Hello Ali. Please try and find a church near you. Often they can help men in your position. God has not abandoned you. Connect with the church, they are all brothers and sisters willing to help you and pray for you as I will and already have. Swallow your pride, seek and ask for help. Jesus said to seek, ask, and knock and He will hear and answer you in one way or another.

Hello, Thank you for your words, I am involved with a church but they do not know of my past. I have spent the last year in some horrible places with the worst kind of people and am just relived when there to spend time with people whom are cut from a different cloth, nice people that I can relate to and worship with and have not told them about my past.
I am female I feel so alone I am so isolated partly because I have moved so far away from my church like on the other side of the city and partly because from what I have heard and read up online this disease is usually associated with drug addicts, I also fear reactions and people behaving different towards me because it is known as highly infectious disease, but I will try and attend the service tomorrow ~ even if I can not talk to anyone (Sunday) I am so depressed I see no quality of life left. just as I was starting to feel hope return after this horrendous year and was starting to feel good about the future I find out this. I feel so sad the thought of having years ahead of me now is exhausting and saddens me greatly. I am a young female with what feels like a death sentence not to mention the awful physical side effects I am known for having depression and anxiety long term aswell and I cant talk to anyone because of this huge stigma not even my doctor.
I fell that I do not even deserve The Lords care and like I could go upstairs right now and just scrub my skin raw I feel dirty infected and discusting and so so very alone. god bless7

Hello again my fellow Christian. I am so sorry. I feel helpless in times like these to make a difference…all the more reason to pray for Jesus to come quickly when all this evil world’s ills will finally end. You are precious to God…so much so that He died for you as Jesus extended His arms out on the cross to die for you…is that not the greatest display of love ever? I will continue to pray for you my sister in Christ. I feel helpless at times like these but God never gives up on us…please don’t lose all hope. You are loved.

Alexis Lopez December 24, 2014 at 11:11 am

Hello my name is Alexis Lopez, I am in the intensive care waiting room as we speak. I am scared and my heart feels lonely! My mother suffered a brain aneurysm and is now very sick. It was one of the most scariest times of my life waking up to my mother throwing up & having a seizure. I was alone at home & managed to keep her well until the ambulance arrived. They needed to drill a whole in her head to drain the blood which was causing swelling, that procedure was done successfully and she was transferred to another hospital. I have never felt more scared & alone in my life. I’ve never really been the type of person to pray or go to church but I am really trying to reach out to god now. I pray everyday I’m not sure if I’m doing it right but I’m trying my hardest. We need my mother to pull through. I have 5 sisters and 4 brothers all from the same mother and we’ve slept in this waiting room for 3days now. I will stay here as long as it takes! My mother is a very very strong woman. We were informed that her heart was too weak to go down a few floors to take scans of her brain. We were waiting 2days for her heart to get stronger so they can take her down and take scans of her brain to see exactly what was going on in her head. Then we were informed that they couldn’t wait any longer that she had to be taken down in the conditions she was in. Which we were scared of that happening, I prayed and prayed and she made it through the scans and through the strength of God she was also strong enough to make it through the procedure following the scans which was coiling her aneurism. She successfully went through those procedures! Now she is still very sick but showing signs of improvement. I really need all the support to help my mother heal! I need your prayers. Through the strength of God my mother shall heal! At this moment all I can do is pray and wait. Please keep my mother in your prayers this is the most difficult time of my entire family’s lives. Please Jesus reach out to us again you’ve gave her the strength to make it this far please allow her to completely heal and exchange words with her kids once again.

Hello Alexis. Why don’t you like church? You are missing out on having the prayers of the saints. We are commanded to not forsake the assembling together of ourselves in the Body of Christ (Heb 10:25) so this disobedience may not help you and your prayers as far we can tell. Why don’t you like church? Why are you separated from the sheepfold of the Great Shepherd? If you want to have Jesus reach out to you and yet are not part of His Body, the church, I don’t know how you can be assured of this help. I say this in love. Jesus said that if you love Him you will keep His commandments so think about it. Those who are not attached to the vine and are not abiding in the vine cannot expect automatically to get help from the owner of the Vineyard (John 15).

Hello Kinga…Please know that our prayers are being sent on your behalf and we are glad to be used by God to help those saints who are in need like yours to stay strong in the Lord and seek His help in sickness and pain. One great way to stay strong in the Lord, like you probably already know, is to stay constantly and daily in the Word of God for the Bible has real power and also to stay connected to a local body of believers called the Body of Christ, the Church, where Christ is present so that other saints of God can pray for you and so that is our prayer for you and thank you for contacting us at Faith in the News. May God richly bless you.

Thank you for your very kindhearted question Elvin. First off here is a biblically based article called How to Pray with the Dying at http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-pray-with-the-dying-5-helpful-tips/ Sometimes the best thing to say is nothing at all but just sit and listen to them. The most important thing as are these who you minister to saved? Read them the Bible. Ask them if they know they’re going to heaven. Read about what heaven will be like (e.g Rev 21, 22). I have been in your situation so sometimes say nothing but listen or you can tell them if they are saved, there is coming a time when there is going to be no more sorry, no more pain, no more suffering and no more death but be sure and this is the most important thing of all, make sure they are saved. Eternity is a very, very long time.

My wife has been sick for a month. She had a stroke. Been on intravenous fluids and medicines. We are believe that God has healed her; by His stripes. Our prayer is that she will give a testimony to God’s Goodness, Graciousness and Loving kindness. Pray with us, please.
