Prayerful Healing for Children

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14)


Prayerful Healing for Children


Heavenly Father,

from the moment of creation

you've predestined the salvation of your people

through the resurrection of your divine Son, Jesus

in order for all to believe.


Through His miraculous words,

Lazarus has risen—

eyesight is restored,

leprosy healed,

demons flee;

transformed drinking water into wine,

wonders for all to witness by God's design—


Merciful Father

We humbly petition thee to heal and save our children from illness

beseeching for the grace of deliverance on behalf of all who suffer

from infirmities of the mind, body, and soul (mention your petition).


Almighty God,

We thank thee for hearing our pleas

and restoring our children to health

through tender mercy and healing grace

from your divine Son, Jesus Christ.

Prayerful Healing is written for anyone in need of encouraging words, especially families with children. I was inspired to write the prayer as a result of what I believe is a miraculous healing through Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of a heart ailment and from years of suffering painful headaches.


Through the blessings and grace of God, I was healed of a heart arrhythmia known as Atrial Fibrillation. The medical condition is treated with Lanoxin, a cardiac medicine. However, I've not used the medication for over twelve years. I was treated by Dr. Gilbert Mandel of Denville, NJ, for the disorder. Additionally, I was healed from years of suffering painful headaches after countless visits to physicians with treatments that went to no avail. Through the power of prayer and Anointing of the Sick, God's healing grace cured me. The healing sacrament is administered through the church. I was anointed with the healing sacrament by Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ.


In James 5, Verse 14-15 the following is noted: "Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven."


I give praise, glory, and thanks to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for all the spiritual gifts and blessings.


(The beautiful stained glass window of Jesus with children sitting on his lap is not immediately obvious when walking into Saint Mary's Church. The window is small but very captivating when seen. The church is located on the corner of Route 46 and Myers Avenue, Denville, NJ).
