Meditations & Confessions for Health and Healing – by John Osteen

By Rev. John Osteen (Father of Joel Osteen, and Founder of Lakewood Church)

I fear the Lord and I prolong my days. I keep my heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. (Prov. 4:23; 10:27)

My desire is only of the Lord and it is a tree of life. I fear the Lord and He is my fountain of life. I have a sound heart and it is the life of my flesh. (Prov. 13:12; Prov. 14:27, 30)

I have a merry heart and it does good like a medicine. My belly is satisfied by the fruit of my mouth, and with the increase of my lips I am filled. Death and life are in the power of my tongue. I speak the life-giving words of God and I receive life and health in my body. (Prov. 17:22; Prov. 18:20-21)

Jesus Christ has borne my sicknesses and carried my pain. He was stricken, smitten of God and afflicted for me. He was wounded for my transgressions and He was bruised for my guilt and iniquities. The chastisement needed to obtain peace and well-being for me was upon Him, and with the stripes that wounded Him, I am healed and made whole. I now have perfect health in my body. (Isa. 53:4-5; 1 Peter 2:24)

The will of God is done on earth as it is done in heaven. There is no sickness in heaven; therefore, I am not sick at all on the earth. Jesus was never sick on this earth. Jesus is in me and His life flows in me. As He was in the world so am I in this world. I am healthy as Jesus was healthy upon this earth. (Matt. 6:10; Gal. 2:20; 1 John 4:17)

Jesus destroyed the works of the devil, which were diseases, sicknesses, and bodily infirmities; therefore, all the works of the devil upon my body are destroyed and I have perfect health in Jesus Christ. (Matt. 8:17; 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38)

I am justified by my words. I have the faith of Jesus Christ in me, for Jesus is in me, and He is the Author and Finisher of my faith. I speak unto the mountains of sickness and disease and they obey my words and leave. I have authority and power over all disease and sickness; I command them to leave and they obey my words. I lay my hands on the sick and they recover. (Matt. 12:37; Heb. 12:2; Mark 11:23; Matt. 10:1; Mark 16:18)

I believe in God and all His promises, and all things are possible unto me. All the promises of God are Yes unto me for Christ has paid the price for all of them. (Mark 9:23; 2 Cor. 1:20)

I believe that all those things I say shall come to pass. All things which I desire, when I pray, I believe that I have received them and I have them. (Mark 11:23-24)

Whatsoever I ask in the Name of Jesus, Jesus himself does it that the Father may be glorified in the Son. When I ask for anything in the Name of Jesus, Jesus says He will do it. (John 14:13-14)

The Father loves Jesus Christ and gives Him all that He asks. The Father loves me as much as He loves Jesus and gives me everything that I ask. (John 16:23-27; 17:23)

All authority in heaven and earth is given unto Jesus Christ. I have faith in the power and authority of the Name of Jesus Christ and through His Name I am made perfectly whole. (Matt. 28:18; Acts 3:16)

The Spirit of God who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in me, and He who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, also quickens and gives life to my mortal body through His Spirit who now dwells in me. (Rom. 8:11)

I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead and I am healed. For with my heart I believe unto righteousness and with my mouth confession is made unto healing and health. (Rom 10:9,10; Mark 5:23; Acts 14:9)

My health springs forth and the glory of the Lord is revealed in me. The Lord brings me health and cure, and reveals unto me the abundance of peace and truth. (Isa. 58:8; John 17:22; Jer. 33:6)

I sow to the Spirit and reap of the Spirit life everlasting. I sow words of health and healing every day and daily reap health in my physical body. (Gal. 6:8-9)

Jesus has destroyed Satan and spoiled all his principalities and powers, and they no longer have any power in me. In the Name of Jesus, I have power over them and over all their works of sickness and disease. (Heb. 2:14; Col. 2:14-15; Mark 16:17-18)

The word is near me, even in my heart and in my mouth; that is the word of faith which I speak. (Rom. 10:8)

It is the will of God that I should prosper and be in perfect health even as my soul prospers. (3 John 2)

My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and all the fullness of God dwells in me. I glorify God in my body and in my spirit which are His. (1 Cor 6:19-20; Eph. 3:19).

    Hello Andrea,
    Praise God that you are on the road to recovery.
    I will continue to thank the Lord for your rapid healing .

  2. Andrea Picillo

    I asked that those who read this pray for me. I was rushed to the hospital in severe septic shock after immediate life saving procedures were done in the emergency room i went directly to the ICU for the next 19 days on total life support. The odds of me pulling through where slim to none. The lord has blessed me with a second chance at life. I spent much time in the hospital and then kessler institite. I have learned how to walk and use my arms and hands. I am fighting the fight. I have tremendous pain and could not do this without our god and the many prayers that have come my way.

  3. Kris

    Please, pray for my wife who has been told that she has to go for surgery to remove a growth from the ovary that is causing her abdominal pain. For God to flush out the growth and cause it to disappear before her next visit to the doctor. God bless His words over our lives

    I have a very strong burning pain in my uper abdomen for many years. I have done all kinds of test, scans and treatment to non avail. Right now I’m standing on God’s word. I started healing scriptural confessions yesterday. I’ve decided to do so several times a everyday by faith until my healing manifest.
    Join me in prayers.
    God bless you. Jesus is Lord.

  7. Rose

    Brethren pray for me, I have tumors on uterus,am seeking God’s hand to touch me coz I don’t wanna do surgery.I want to testify of God’s goodness and faithfulness to all people that there is a God who answers prayer!!!!

    1. Post

      Rose – Get the scriptures down inside of you and then hear from God. Read my testimony from prostate cancer – Healing Scriptures and Confession for Cancer. The principal is exactly the same. And my Pastor’s book – Receiving God’s Mercy. He was given 90-days to live over 20 years ago.

      We both heard from God and received treatment. I have seen people get healed without treatment but you have to specifically hear from God. God told him that he was in pride and if he did not receive treatment he would die.

      Hearing God is key to just about everything concerning faith and obedience. You must confess the word till it gets down in you and you must seek God till you hear. Then you are good and guaranteed healing and victory. Faith is based on knowing and knowing comes from hearing from someone Who knows. We love you. Rex

  8. Jane Deborah

    Calvary Greetings Brethren, we thank God its a new day with its blessings of healing and breakthrough. It’s not been easy with me and my sister Ruth Achieng. She was diagnosed with cancer last year and it has not been easy. We have seen the Hand of God lifting her whenever there is a bad attack. Since last week the pain has been quite sever and she is just crying. She is far away from me but l know for our God there is no place far and His hand is not short. Please let join hands to pray for her healing rebuking this serpent called cancer and God to grant her relieve from this pain in Jesus Name. We serve a God who cannot lie. By His stripes we were healed. He died to save us from all sickness and attacks from the devil. He raised Lazarus from the dead, He cannot be defeated to raise Ruth from that sick bed in Jesus Name.

    1. Jane Deborah

      God is on the throne Joel cannot be serving God and Daddy you don’t get your healing. I pray the Lord the Great Physician to lay his able hand on you in Jesus Name.
      I had asked for Ruths healing, good news Ruth left the hospital yesterday though with a big brace on her neck to hold her firmly as the cancer broke her neck. She is able to move slowly and my daughter Brenda also is now with her despite her also dislocating her hand on her way to help Ruth. We serve a living God and l believe HE will deliver them all from infirmities. By HIS stripes we were healed.

  9. Glenesha

    I come in agreement with you that by Jesus, our Brothers stripes that we are Healed. I have been taking my medicine daily (Reading the Word of the Father). The Word is truly the Best Medicine.

  11. Miracle J.


    I just want to thank our GREAT GOD for my healing that I have received by faith! I am posting this to encourage myself and others! In 2012, I had 21 terrible fibroids removed from my uterus. I had even more issues after the surgery, including multiple blood transfusions, iron treatments, new fibroids, hospital stays and bills (ugh), etc. It was a miserable existence. Recently, my mother has been pressing me to not only read the Word, by say the confessions out loud. I think that is helping me and I hope it helps you (do it especially when you have a pain attack). Just call on the mighty Name of Jesus Christ. I haven’t been back to the doctor yet to get a count of how many have “returned” because I believe I am healed and there won’t be anything there to remove. Amen! Amen! We all have healthy bodies and peaceful lives! God bless & love you all 😊

  12. Jan

    I have a praise report about my son in law who is 36 yrs old . I asked for prayers for he had kidney failure. Well praise God he underwent surgery , got a new kidney and He is doing great . Everything went so smooth . I knew that was the hand of God guiding the doctors hands. His sister gave her kidney to him and she’s doing fine too. God is so Good they both are healing so quick, to see them you would never know they just had major surgery!! What a faithful wonderful Abba Father we have. We are so Blessed to be in His family!!!!!

  13. Gavin

  14. Bidgie

    what a testimonyyou have , Vicki . I will lift you up in my prayers. Jennifer Rothschild in her book Missing Pieces said that sometimes our satisfaction does not come from answers from God but from our relationship getting stronger with Him because of the reasons for those prayers. it is appears to me that your relationship with the Lord has reached a climactic point!!!!.. More than anything in the world He wants a relationship with us! thank you Jesus for opening her heart and her spirit unto you. Thank you so much for being a God who never gives up on us. thank you Lord for loving us unconditionally…… I Pray for Continued blessings upon Vicky. We ask for healing for her and we give you all the honor, praise, and glory for it. thank you Lord that even when we are in the valleys of our lives, you can put us high on the mountain as we rejoice in our Savior. Amen.

  15. Vicki

    I ask that you all pray for me!
    God has shown me I will heal!
    I have had fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome for 15 years.
    God showed me it is not my body that I should pray for but my Spirit.
    My Spirit is broken He said. I pray. I am not sure how to heal my Spirit.
    I ask God to Heal it! I hand to laugh at myself when He showed me the answer!
    What a stubborn child of God I am – it only took Him 15 years to show me!
    What a patient God He is! Please help me to Pray and follow the path to heal my broken spirit.
    I am a working nurse and struggle to work with my illness but. I know I am on the way to healing.
    At the moment both legs and feet are in terrible pain that I find it difficult to walk but with God’s help I do. Both my thighs are in muscle spasm as well. Please pray for me that God continues to give me the strength to get through work. I fear God and I believe in Him with all my heart, without quetsion – just as a child would.
    I thank you for any prayers you offer. I will pray for you as well. Pray also for the other people who struggle. I know my struggles will make me a comforter to many people – so I’m that my pain and difficulties are a blessing.
    In Christ’s name, my Love to All!

      Vicki, I came across your request. I have prayed for you. I do want to share with you what Jesus said in Luke 4:18. The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, and He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted. The way you get your broken spirit healed is by the anointing. He will do it. When we spend time with the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, healing will flow. Read Acts 10:38. We do not have to beg Jesus to heal. Just receive. Scriptures teach us that we have been redeemed by the Precious Blood of Jesus 1Peter 1:18-19. Jesus paid for your healing when they beat Him. His blood shed on the cross not only bought your salvation for your dead spirit which is now alive in Him, but that same blood bought your redemption from sickness and pain. Isaiah 53 is a chapter I suggest you read and meditate. Whose Report will you believe? Verses 4 -5 says Jesus took our sins, bore our sickness, and carried our pains. He did it all for you so you would not have to. It’s a gift that has to be received by faith. Just take it by faith in Jesus and give Him praise. Now we walk by faith. That means you have a part and that part is to spend time reading, confessing, study, pray the word, etc. Proverbs 4 says it best, give attention to God’s Word, hear the Word, keep the Word before your eyes, and keep in the center of your heart. You follow these instructions and healing will manifest. One last thing. Hebrews tells us faith is a rest. Just rest in Jesus, rest in His promises, rest in faith. To God Be The Glory!!!

      Vicki, I am praying for you. I will keep you in my prayers!

      I pray in the name of Jesus, that Vicki is healed, from the top of her head to the souls of her feet.
      Her relationship with Jesus christ, personal relationships, past, future, life, health, relationships, holy ghost, her inner being, her heart, her mind, from the inside out, is healed. & all the other places that she needs healing, is healed.

      Amen, & God bless tons!

  16. Vicki

    Praise God! Thank you Jesus Christ!!!!!
    Hoe Glorious is His Name!

    What fabulous news! Yahweh! We Praise Your Name!
    What Joy You bring!

    I sing your name King of Kings! Jesus Christ!
    The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost!

  17. Vicki


    I join you in this prayer! Devil get behind us! Christ is King! Knows all and heals all!
    Believe and call out His Name! Jesus Christ! Amen!

    – Vicki

    Oops. Sorry about the typo.
    ” Now, how patience with your recovery time.”

    I mean: Be patient with your recovery time. It does take time. Just remember that and do not become frustrated. You will be completely healed when God is ready! This surgery or experience will also help you to be a comfort to anyone else going through it. I look at all my experinces, especially difficult ones, as opportunities to be there for other people. There is nothing like receiving comfort from someone who has been through the same thing. See this as a blessing to serve and comfort other people. Love in Christ’s Name – Vicki

    Please pray with me that my Wonderous Father Jesus Christ will heal me from my years of suffering with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. I know that the Holy Spirit can heal me. The doctors and all my medications have not stopped these diseases from progressing. I struggle to work and have fought for disability but been denied twice. I see this as my Father in Heaven not wanting my to give up and give in to these diseases. I was unemployed for almost a year because I was so sick, suffering from pain, horrible fatigue. Then out of the blue my previous employer called requesting I come back to work for them. I have been a dialysis nurse for 12 years. In that, I saw that God was calling me and telling me not to give up. I pray often. Still I have begun battling depression which has almost lead me to a very dark place. I know it was the Devil trying to defeat me. It came to a point where I felt like there was a battle begin fought for my soul. I continued to run to the scriptures. I know God is here with me. I know He has a plan. I welcome your prayers. I rebuke all this sickness and I am in the name of my Father in Heaven Jesus Christ. Oh, how I love Him. He Holds me up daily or I could not make it through a day. I continue to pray and wait on the Lord. Love to all of you in His Name.

  25. Barbara

    It is good to have others pray & come in agreement. But remember in Mark 11 it says for you to speak to the mountain. And it’s according to your faith. Continue reading healing scriptures daily it will get into your heart and then faith will come out of your mouth. Read the artical by Gloria Copeland on faith very encouraging and so true. God is faithful to His word. And a God that cannot lie. His word heals our flesh. Never give up. The enemy tries to weaken our faith so we won’t be able to receive. Rebuke his thoughts that comes against His Word. You are the healed.

  26. Promise

    Please pray with me for complete healing against, migraine, high blood pressure, fibroids, extreme fatigue and anxiety. I believe that by his stripes I am healed in Jesus name.

      Victor – I will pray for you. Keep reading the confessing the scriptures. Don’t stop. Read the articles on faith and healing. The faith will drop down into your heart. God is a healer but you must be persistent. Keep it up. Don’t stop. Act like your life depends on it. It does.

      I pray for the mercy, grace, and power of God to be all over you and your family in Jesus Name. If you stay in faith, God will restore all that the Devil has stolen. Enforce the word of God with your faith. Trust Him, and seek Him. Talk to God and let Him talk back to you. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing is the victory. We love you. Rex

  32. Ree

    The enemy torments me daily with symptoms of a neuromuscular disease (no diagnosis yet). I ask for healing in my mind, body and spirit so I may confidently declare myself whole! May I be touched by the Holy Spirit and begin the road to health and a strong testimony!

  33. Bev Eugenio

    I need a miracle in my body.Thank you

    This is my diagnosis .

    CT Scan results in laymen’s terms. Vertebral arteries to the brain (back of head) are abnormally narrow. One artery is terminated. When Bev’s neck is in the right (wrong) position, blood flow to the brain is interrupted causing the near black out condition. Doc giving her a cervical collar to keep her from moving her head to the those positions that could trigger an event. We must follow up with a vascular neuro-surgeon in Springfield for more specialized treatment options. The option we prefer a a complete miracle; for which we are already thanking God!

    1. Yoli

      Bev we agree with your healing. Jesus we ask you to heal Bev. Lord touch her body and restore health to her in Jesus name.

      The Spirit of God who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in Bev, and He who raised up Jesus Christ from the dead, also quickens and gives life to Bev’s mortal body through His Spirit who now dwells in Bev. Rom. 8:11

      I believe in God and all His promises, and all things are possible unto Bev. All the promises of God are Yes unto Bev for Christ has paid the price for all of them.
      Mark 9:23; 2 Cor. 1:20

      Keep speaking Healing Scriptures daily. The Word of God will protect you and heal you. Any bad reports rebuke them. Stand firm on God’s WORD.

      God bless you with good health.
