6 Healing Prayers For Your Aunt

Last Updated on October 19, 2023 by Emma

Does your aunt need healing?

We are glad you have chosen to pray to God, the creator of all, the one who can heal, and the one who cares deeply for you and your aunt.

I just found out that my aunt will need both knees replaced. The healing process will take months after the surgery is done. Many prayers will be lifted up as the doctors prepare for surgery and throughout the healing process.

What is your aunt going through?

We hope one of these prayers prompts will help you to pray specifically for your aunt.

Aunts are special people in our lives. They have known us since we were born, they have seen us grow up, and they helped our mom’s as families join together to raise a child. We understand the importance of Aunts and know that when they need healing we have a powerful tool we can use to help, prayer.

I hope that whatever your aunt is going through and needs healing these following prayers can help you begin to pray for her.

If you want to leave a specific prayer request below we would love to come alongside you in prayer for your aunt.

Short Prayer For Aunt’s Healing

Dear Heavenly Father, you are a great and powerful God. You are might to save us from our deepest troubles and created us so uniquely so that our bodies can heal. I come to you today in order to pray for my aunt. You know the area she needs healing and I pray you heal her.

God, I not only want to pray that you heal her body but more important that you heal her soul. We are broken and lost apart from you. If my aunt does not know you I pray that you open her eyes to see her need for a savior and give her humility to repent and claim you as Lord.

God, please heal my aunt. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer For Aunt’s Healing From Surgery

God, please be with my aunt after surgery. Thank you for bringing her through surgery. Thank you for the doctors, for the countless hours they have put in to study, practice, and execute a surgery like this.

Thank you for creating our bodies to be able to heal. You are the great healer so I pray now that you heal her body completely after surgery.

God, the greatest healing you have ever done is healing us and saving us from our sins.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. (Jeremiah 17:14 ESV)

So Lord, I pray that just as you healing and saving us from our sins has given you praise, that as my aunt heals from surgery that you may also receive praise. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer For Aunt’s Healing After Sickness

God, please be with my aunt as her body heals from this sickness. We can get so tired of this fallen world and the pain and sickness that comes with it.

Lord, thank you that we can see throughout scripture that you heal those who are sick.

The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health. (Psalm 41:3 ESV) 

Lord, we know that you can heal small colds, sickness that last for months, and can even heal sickness that threaten death, like breast cancer. 

I pray that you restore my aunt to full health. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer For Aunt’s Healing After Accident

God, you are sovereign over all, and when things feel out of control, like after an accident, we run to you. So today I’m running to you after my aunt was in an accident, asking you to heal her.

Help me be a joyful spirit for my aunt.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22 ESV)

Lord, sometimes life feels defeating after a big accident like this. Help me to remember your sovereignty. That you are in control. That you can even use this accident to open eyes to who you are. So I pray you to use this accident for your glory.

Please heal my aunt, help us to look back at this accident one day and see your hands throughout the whole situation. We pray this in your name, Amen.

Prayer For Aunt’s Emotional Healing

God, my aunt has been hurt and is struggling to find joy in this season of her life.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3 ESV)

God, you know what has caused her to feel broken. I thank you we can come to you with prayers that like. Thank you for caring for us so much.

Be with my aunt today. Give her just enough strength for today and we will trust you for tomorrow. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Prayer For Aunt’s Healing After Addiction

God, you are more powerful than anything or any substance on this earth. So I pray that you heal my aunt from the addictions that have bounded her. Heal her completely from the desires of using those substances. Help her to find her comfort, joy and even excitement in you alone.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, (Psalm 103:2-4 ESV)

Lord, addictions reveal our idols, what we we seek for comfort instead of you. Help my aunt to see the freedom in you as you forgive all her sins. Heal this disease of addiction completely.

Lord, her addiction has felt like a pit of darkness for her and for our family. Redeem her completely from this pit.

I pray you help her feel your love and mercy all her days, especially in her week moments. We praise you that you love is steadfast. It never ends, it never leaves, it is so good.

Overwhelm my aunt with your love so she never wants to go back to her addiction. I pray this all in your name, Amen.
