  Prayers for Use with Laying-On-of-Hands

Our Lord, Jesus Christ, Who gave authority to His disciples that they should lay hands upon the sick that they might recover, have mercy upon you and strengthen you in body, soul and spirit; and give you faith in His power to heal. By His authority committed unto me, I lay my hands upon you in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

I lay my hands upon you and anoint you with oil in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy spirit, beseeching the mercies of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that all sin, sickness, and disease of body, soul and spirit may depart from you, and by the power of the Holy spirit you shall be made whole. Amen

I lay my hands upon your head (an anoint you with oil) in the Name of God the Father, who made you, and in the Name of Jesus Christ, who died for you, and in the Name of the Holy Spirit, who sanctifies you. O Triune God, fill this Your servant with Your healing love. Lift every burden, throw light upon every problem, wash away all guilt, forgive every sin, reconcile every strained relationship, heal every disease, re-energize his entire being, anoint him with Your joy, and fill him with Your peace. Bless and heal the ones for whom he is interceding through Jesus Christ, Whom with You, O Father, and the Holy Spirit, we worship and praise as one God, world without end. Amen.

May the mercy of God, and the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the power of His Holy Spirit, which are here now, enter your spirit, your soul, and your body for healing. Amen.
