The Lord is the strength of my life.
I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth.
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?
...that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.
...they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
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.
Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness– by Whose stripes you were healed.
I Peter 2:24
My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
I John 5:14-15
Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My Name, He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive that your joy may be full.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
...your faith has made you well, go in peace and be healed of your affliction.
He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction.
The spirit of a man sustains him in his infirmity.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
III John 1:2
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us.
For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds, says the Lord.
...with long life will I satisfy him, and show him My salvation.
