From “Healing Prayer: For Emotional & Physical Wholeness

By Bill & Kristi Gaultiere

The Bible records forty-two on different occasions where Jesus healed one or more people or did another supernatural work. (1) That’s a lot of miracles in three years and yet it’s just a sample. Mark indicates on three separate occasions that Jesus healed “many” people at the same time (Mark 1:32-34, 3:10-11, 6:56). John tells us that Jesus also did many other healings and miracles not included in the Bible (John 20:30).

It’s quite inspiring and faith-building to read this list of Jesus’ compassionate healings and miracles in the gospels! For this reason, we recommend using one or more of these Scriptures for meditation during healing prayer conversations or meetings.
