Here’ s the prayer related to my article about the healing power of prayer. This is how I pray when I have an asthma attack. Out of the last 4 or 5 episodes I’ve only had to use meds once.
Good Father. I open myself up to You. Heal me. Free me. Free me from my illness. Cleanse me and purify me. Open my lungs to breathe freely. Open all the air passages and let the air flow freely in my lungs. Relax the constricting muscles. Dry all secretions. Stimulate my natural antihistamines.
Oh Father, recruit all of my bodily systems, the circulatory system, the nervous system, my heart, my brain, my lungs, my liver, my pancreas, my spleen, my thyroid, my stomach, my intestines, my lymphatic system, my kidneys, my muscles, my bones, my skin… all working in harmony towards healing and health. All cellular and biochemical mechanisms working together to heal me under Your guiding Hand and Spirit.
Heal my soul Heavenly Father. Raise up my natural defenses. Strengthen me. Heal me. Free me. Cleanse me. Purify me. Purify me of sin and illness. Restore me. Restore me to health. Mobilize my body at every level to overcome this illness.
Cleanse me deeply Lord, heal me of all psychological, emotional and spiritual wounds that manifest in breathing problems.
Heal me Lord. Calm me Father. Soothe me. Let the air flow and let my lungs heal and expand without interruption, without strain. Let the air flow and let me breathe freely that my voice may be raised up in praise and wonder to You and Your glory. In the name of Your beloved Son Jesus Christ, Amen.
