15 Powerful Healing Prayers for Good Medical Test Results 

When we’re waiting for the results of medical tests it can be hard to sit still.

We may feel anxious or worried. We may find ourselves thinking about all the what-ifs. And we may wonder what the future holds for us. 

It can be a scary time.

This is why in those moments of waiting, the best thing we can do is to spend time with the God who loves us and is with us every step of the way.  

Reading Bible verses reminds us of God’s precious promises to us.

  • The fact that He loves us (1 John 4:9-10).
  • That He is for us (Romans 8:31).
  • That He has a plan. (Jeremiah 29:11).
  • And that He can work all things out for our good (Romans 8:28). 

We can also spend time in prayer. Pouring out our hearts out before God (Lamentations 2:19) and asking for God’s help.  

After all, God already knows everything that’s going to happen to us. He knows the whole path of our lives. And He loves us more than we could possibly imagine.  

So, we can trust Him in everything. Even the waiting.  

“The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” 

-Philippians 4:5a-7 NIV
A road in a valley in the mountains. And the words, "When we remember the abundance of love God has for us. And the fact that He is always with us. It becomes easier to trust Him . . . even in the darkest of our valleys.

How do you pray for good medical test results?

There is no magic formula for praying in a certain way to get the results you want. But by praying to God about our test results we can connect with Him. Grow in our relationship with Him. And learn how to lean on Him to carry us through whatever happens.

If you think about it, when we have something serious going on, often the first thing we do is reach out to a good friend.  

It helps to talk about everything. To vent about all our worries, fears, and concerns. And to just get it all off our chest.  

And we can do the exact same thing with God.  

We can go to Him in prayer and tell Him everything that is going on inside of us. (He already knows anyway.) And then we can ask Him to help us.  

By turning to God in our time of need, we’ll discover He really is the strength we need when we are weak. (2 Corinthians 12:9) 

A waterfall and the verse, "Pour out your heart like water before the Lord." (Lamentations 2:19)

Does prayer affect medical outcomes?

God doesn’t need our prayers to work in our life. But He still wants us to pray to Him.

Because with God, it is all about our relationship with Him.  

And just like any relationship, we grow in our relationship with Him when we spend time with Him and talk with Him.  

God may answer our prayers the way we want Him to. Or He may not.  

But by praying to Him we can find the comfort, strength, and peace we need to face anything.

Because even though we want healing and good test results, we still need to surrender to the will of God.

He has a plan. And a purpose for our lives that is far grander than we could ever imagine.  

He knows far more than we do about what we’re going through. And He knows what is best for us.  

Even if that means He waits to heal us until the next life.

When Prayers Aren’t Answered the Way We Want

Sometimes God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we want Him to. In those moments, we need to remember that He loves us.

And He can work all things out for our good. (Romans 8:28)

Another great thing to remember is that life is supposed to be difficult. That is what enables us to grow. 

If life wasn’t hard, we’d never learn to lean on Jesus for the strength we need.

If we never struggled, we would never learn that we need Jesus more than anything.  

It is in the storms of life that we realize God really can be our refuge.  

It is when our world falls apart that we discover the comforting arms of the One who holds our hearts.  

And it is when we have nothing left to give, that we experience the loving Presence of our Heavenly Father who can be our strength.  

While hard times are never fun. They can be a blessing in disguise.

Helping us to grow in our faith, our character, and most importantly our relationship with the God who passionately loves us.
