Orthodox ask God to grant healing to themselves, their relatives and friends. Believers make prayers for the good health of newborns, children, grandchildren, parents. In case of certain diseases, they also pray intensely to selected saints.
Believers order prayers and prayers for health in the temple, read texts of prayers at home for themselves or the sick.
Healing prayers help to quickly recover, recover from operations, can protect against physical and mental illness.
It is customary to turn to the Lord with prayers for any illness. In ancient times, healers did not start treating a patient without a prayer, because they understood that the Lord grants health, and doctors are only an instrument of His Will.
When they pray for life and health — their own or their loved ones — they do not give up hope of God’s mercy, because anything is possible for the Lord.
Reading prayers for health, they ask:
- about healing, recovery;
- about health;
- about spiritual health;
- about recovering from a serious illness;
- about the successful completion of the operation;
- about the health of the mentally ill;
- about alleviating suffering.
In the Holy Scripture it is said that no sorrow befalls man without the will of God. For all you need to thank the Lord — for the well-being, and for the deprivation.
Such thanksgiving dulls suffering, brings spiritual comfort to the sick, renews faith and hope in the mercy of God.
To help the Orthodox Christian in treating any serious diseases, even:
- one. Confession and Communion. Sometimes repentance alone helps the disease to leave a person. Some sins are so heavy that they entail the punishment of God in the form of physical suffering. Communion instils the grace of God in man, which transforms the soul and heals the body.
- 2 Blessing priest. Before an operation or treatment in a medical institution, it is customary to take a blessing, asking for prayers about yourself.
- 3 Magpie and Psalter. In the temple, and better in the monasteries, they leave notes with names for forty minutes of health, commemoration of the living on the “Psalter Psalms” for a long time. When submitting notes, it should be remembered that the power of common prayer is when the people who submitted the note also pray.
- four. Agreement prayer. Believers relatives are asked to pray according to the agreement of the suffering. A common prayer is pleasing to the Lord and is rather being performed.
- five. Remembering names in liturgy. Notes submitted to the altar express faith and hope that the Lord will visit the sick with his kind help.
They pray for healing to the Lord God, because in His hands is the life of the sick. Helpers are called upon by His gracious Mother — the Most Holy Mother of God — and the holy healers.
He who during his life had the gift of treating people or himself endured diseases with patience, he cares about the sick before God after his departure to heaven.
The Lord is gracious and, through diligent, ardent prayers of loved ones, he sends relief from illness, improvement and favorable prognosis, as well as spiritual health. Pray to God and the beginning of any prayer appeal to the saints.
To do this, read these prayers or «Our Father.»

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 I had to give 11 for renting an apartment. It 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.
