Healing prayer starts with knowing the will of God. He said, "I am the God that healeth thee." Christ is no respecter of persons. If he ever healed anyone (and he has), he will heal you too. Jesus knows what you need. He said, "If thou can believe, all things are possible to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23).
Healing prayer is a fundamental teaching in Bible. When Apostle Peter introduced the gospel to the first Gentile believers he spoke of Christ healing power. "That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him" Acts 10:37-38). Christ is not only your savior, he is also your healer. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
As a Christian, you are a person of faith. Faith takes God at His word. He said, "I am the God that healeth thee" (Exodus 15:26). This is an important Scripture when you are praying for healing, strength, and protection. We thank God for doctors, but doctors are still practicing medicine.
There is one that knows exactly what you need. His name is Jesus, your Great Physician. If you are sick, take God at his word. Meditate on these Scriptures for healing, His healing promises. Jesus Christ is no respecter of persons. If he ever healed anyone (and he has), then he will heal you too. You already know that "faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word" (Romans 10:17). This means faith starts where the will of God is known.
HEALING IS THE WILL OF GOD
There was a sick leper needing healing that came to Christ. He knew that Christ could heal, he just didn't know if it were Christ's will to heal. Jesus made it clear to him and to you. "And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him" (Luke 5:12-13). Settle this in your mind, it is Christ's will to heal you.

"And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.

FAITH IN ACTION
I love this testimony of the women with the issue of blood. It's amazing to read her faith in action. She knew Christ was the answer to her miracle. All she needed to do was touch him. You too can touch Christ, you touch him through praying in faith.
"And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague."(Mark 5:25-34)
Your heavenly father knows what you need. God heals. Her faith touched the power of God and brought here complete healing. Physical healing is promised to every sick person because Jesus heals yesterday, today, and forever.
There are lots of Scriptures for healing prayer. Christ knows what you need. If it's healing, meditate on His promises of healing to you. Jesus said, "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth"(Mark 9:23).
Finally, remember this Scripture. "And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him" (1 John 5:14-15 AMP).
