Jesus Will Touch You With His Healing Power Instantly if You Ask Him With This Powerful Prayer – It Works!!

A Careful Consideration

Before diving into the topic, it is vital to approach it with both faith and reason. As a Catholic scholar, I must clarify that it’s not in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church to claim that any prayer can guarantee an “instant” response from God, including healing. The church teaches us that God listens to our prayers, but the manner and timing of His response may vary and are in accordance with His Divine Will. What I aim to do here is to explore how prayer can be a powerful means of asking for Jesus’ healing, guided by the teachings of the Church and the examples from the Scripture.

The Nature of Prayer According to the Catholic Church

Prayer is our way of communicating with God, offering him our praises, and asking for his help. It is not just asking God for things but is a relationship with Him. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) says, “Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God” (CCC 2559). Note that the Catechism doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get what you ask for instantly, or even at all. Instead, it emphasizes a relationship, a dialogue with God.

The Nature of Healing in the New Testament

In the New Testament, we find numerous accounts of Jesus healing people from all sorts of afflictions. For example, in the Gospel of Matthew, it says: “And he went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people” (Matthew 4:23, RSV). However, it’s crucial to remember that each healing was unique and suited to the individual’s needs and God’s plan for them.

How to Ask for Healing

Even though we can’t be sure when or how God will answer our prayers for healing, we can certainly ask. James 5:16 (RSV) advises us to “confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed.” So how should we pray? One powerful way to ask for healing is through a prayer of petition. This is where you clearly and humbly present your request to God. But remember that the prayer should not be a demand but a request, made in faith and in submission to God’s will.

The Prayer

Here is a prayer based on scriptural and traditional Catholic teachings:

“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, you have the power to heal the sick and bring comfort to the afflicted. I come before you today, in need of your healing touch. I place my afflictions before you, trusting in your infinite mercy. I believe that you have the power to heal me, and I accept whatever you have planned for me. Your will be done, Lord. Amen.”

No Guarantees, But A Relationship

As much as we’d like to say otherwise, praying this prayer doesn’t guarantee instant healing. What it does is deepen our relationship with God. We trust Him to do what is best for us, and sometimes that might mean we don’t receive the healing we’re hoping for. God has His reasons, even if they’re not clear to us. As Paul says in Romans 8:28 (RSV), “We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.”

The Church’s Role in Healing

The Catholic Church offers the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, which is one of the seven sacraments. It offers grace and helps us to unite our sufferings to the sufferings of Christ. “This grace is a gift of the Holy Spirit, who renews trust and faith in God and strengthens against the temptations of the evil one, the temptation to discouragement and anguish in the face of death” (CCC 1520).

The Mystery of Suffering and the Role of Faith

The Church acknowledges the mystery of suffering. While faith in Jesus can bring healing, it doesn’t mean that those who aren’t healed lack faith. As the Catechism says, “We do not know the meaning of all things” (CCC 272). We trust that even in suffering, God is with us, and through that suffering, we can become closer to Christ.


Prayer is a powerful means of asking for healing, but it’s not a guaranteed “quick fix.” It’s a way to deepen our relationship with God and align our will with His. While we can and should ask God for healing, we should do so with faith and openness to His will, whatever that may be. And in times of suffering, the Church is there to provide grace and support through the Sacraments and community. So while there are no guarantees, there is always hope and a God who loves us more than we can imagine.
