Healing Scriptures for “Anointing of the Sick” and “Laying On of Hands”

 The healing scriptures below give examples of where the Bible supports “Anointing of the sick” and “Laying on of Hands” as being biblically appropriate for ministering to the sick.

 Many people think that only ministers and other church leaders can “Anoint the Sick”, but really it is a practice that any believer can perform. The healing will take place not based upon your feeling, but your faith and the faith of the one being touched.


 Because God honors his Word !!!!

You see the miracle of healing is activated because you have the courage to believe and honor his Word.

Go ahead in the name of Jesus and exercise the authority given unto you to help someone. It is amazing what a personal touch can do for one’s healing.

  1.  Mark 6:13
    “And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.”

  3. Mark 16:17-18
    “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”

  5. Luke 4:40
    “Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he [Jesus] laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.”

  7. Luke 10:30-35
    “And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.”

  9. Acts 28:8-9
    And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him. So when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and were healed:”

  11. James 5:14-16
    “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

    Im in a situation, i have a sister-in law, she’s let herself get to rock bottom, my brother passed last November, she hasn’t made a house payment since,now are facing eviction, I’ve talked to her daily since his loss, she’s lied to me all through this, she’s a precription addict, I’ve gave myself to GOD, n now she’s asking me to move in with me, i fear that she will bring me down!!! I’m praying that i can not let her in my home,for she will .not respond when i tell her she needs GOD in heart life, please pray for her n her child n grandchild, I’ve been trying to tell her GOD is her only helps, she’s just regecting him,

    Dear Sister Your sister in law is in need of being around people of God so she can understand why she needs God when she is around you and other saints God will show her how he works in you and it will take time which might seem like along time but remember God is always on time. Continue to pray and talk to God he will speak to you. please don’t keep saying that she needs God because right now may not understand that. just keep loving on her.the love of Christ is shinning through you and she will see and feel it and what you want for her will come. as the psalm says wait upon the lord and be of good courage.and God loves her and wants the best for her. God bless you both. In Christ Tamrah

    Thank you for the key verses of healing scriptures. They were of great help for my telephone prayer service this morning with the focus of “healing”. God is awesome, He said: “His word will not return unto Him void, but it will accomplish that which it sets out for”.
