Prayers to Nicholas the Wonderworker for health, healing, speedy recovery
Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker is the patron saint of not only travelers and children. The help of the Outlaw is felt by all who call him heartily.
Despite the fact that Nicholas does not belong to the cohort of saints-healers, his intercession is often asked for health problems, oncology and before surgery. And all because the saint quickly helps and does not leave any of the requests unanswered.
Through the earnest prayers of the Miracle-maker, the Lord sends healing and a speedy recovery.
Orthodox Christians can seek help from the saints in any need, be it healing, problems at work, or a tiff with a loved one. But the saint most willingly responds to those requests that were associated with his earthly talents or feats.
Saint Nicholas always helped those in need and those who were in a hopeless situation. And now the saint leaves the support of the sick, offended and poor.
Those who are sick pray to St. Nicholas:
- on the correct diagnosis of the disease;
- before surgery;
- in oncology;
- about a cure for a serious illness;
- about speedy recovery;
- about financial assistance.
Nicholas the Wonderworker read a prayer for health for himself, for his loved ones.
When a son or daughter is sick, in the cause of healing there is no need to neglect such a powerful means as prayer. It is especially necessary to ask mother about the health of the children of the Lord, the Mother of God, the holy healers and St. Nicholas.
The child can read the prayer, both parents and godparents, other relatives. After reading, the child should be sprinkled with holy water and anointed with consecrated oil.
Prayer from ailments second:
The duty of children is to pray for their mom and dad. This calls God’s mercy not only on the sick, but also on the one who prays for him.
Every good deed does not go unnoticed by the Most High.
The third prayer to the saint:
When reading a prayer for a mother, husband, or other close person, you need to trust the Lord in everything. You can not grumble at fate or demand something. Only the Lord knows why the disease was sent and why.
The task of the prayer is to ask the mercy of the Most High for the forgiveness of sin and hope for speedy healing.
One should start praying to the saint already at the stage of diagnostics in case of suspicion of cancer. It is advisable to know the names of the doctors who lead the patient and pray for them.
They ask the Lord and St. Nicholas the Wonderworker to make doctors wise to make a correct diagnosis and an effective treatment regimen.
Prayer to the Lord and Saint Nicholas for healing:
During the operation, it is advisable to ask relatives to read the akathist to the saint. The text can be found in special books — akafistniki — or purchase a separate book in any icon shop.
Even if doctors give disappointing forecasts, there is always a chance for recovery. God’s grace knows no bounds.
By sincere prayers uttered from the heart and no matter what the words, St. Nicholas is troubling about all the supplicants before the throne of God.
Do not take the text of the Orthodox prayer as a conspiracy. It is always a living appeal to another person, and not a set of magic formulations.
If the text is not entirely clear, an interpretation of complex words or phrases should be found. You can and should pray in your own words.
At first, this is difficult, but knowing the basic rules of prayer, you can learn it.
The basic rules of Orthodox prayer:
- during prayer you need to calm the mind, try not to think about everyday things;
- it is necessary to present oneself to the one before whom one prays;
- The main petition of a Christian in prayer is the salvation of the soul, all the rest will follow;
- asking for the forgiveness of sins, repentance attracts God’s mercy on the life of the person praying;
- In all requests, you need to add: «If it is God’s will, and I will benefit.»
If the case is difficult and it seems that own prayer remains unanswered, there are ways to strengthen it. The lord said: “Verily, I also say to you, that if two of you agree on Earth to ask for any business, then whatever you ask, they will be from My Heavenly Father, for where two or three are gathered in My name, there I am them. «

The story of one of our readers Alina R .:
Money has always been my main concern. Because of this, I had a bunch of complexes. I considered myself a failure, problems at work and in my personal life haunted me.
However, I decided that I still needed personal help. Sometimes it seems that the matter is in you, all the failures are only a consequence of bad energy, the evil eye or some other evil force.
But who will help in a difficult life situation, when it seems that all life is rolling down the slope and passing by you. It is difficult to be happy working as a cashier for 26 thousand rubles, when you had to give 11 for renting an apartment.
What was my surprise when my whole life suddenly changed for the better overnight. I could not even imagine that one could earn so much money that at first glance a knickknack could have such an effect.
It all started with the fact that I ordered a personal one.
