Bible verses about "faith healing" | ISV

Matthew 17:14-20

14 As they approached the crowd, a man came up to Jesus, knelt down in front of him, 15 and said, "Sir, have mercy on my son, because he is an epileptic and suffers terribly. Often he falls into fire and often into water. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they couldn't heal him." 17 Jesus replied, "You unbelieving and perverted generation! How long must I be with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring him here to me!" 18 Then Jesus rebuked the demon and it came out of him, and the boy was healed that very hour. 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why couldn't we drive it out?" 20 He told them, "Because of your lack of faith. I tell you with certainty, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.

Jonah 2:4-10

4 So I said to myself, 'I have been driven away from you. How will I again gaze on your holy temple?' 5 Flood waters encompassed me, the deep surrounded me while seaweeds wrapped around my head. 6 I sank to the roots of the mountains; the earth's prison bars closed around me forever. Yet you resurrect the dead from the pit, LORD my God!" 7 "As my life was fading away, I remembered the LORD; and my prayer came to you in your holy temple. 8 Those who cling to vain idols leave behind the gracious love that could have been theirs. 9 But as for me, with a voice of thanksgiving I will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay. Deliverance is the LORD's!" 10 Then the LORD spoke to the sea creature, and it spewed Jonah onto the dry land.

Matthew 8:2

2 Suddenly a leper came up to him, fell down before him, and said, "Sir, if you want to, you can make me clean."

Luke 7:11-17

11 Soon afterwards, Jesus went to a city called Nain. His disciples and a large crowd were going along with him. 12 As he approached the entrance to the city, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother's only son, and she was a widow. A large crowd from the city was with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, he felt compassion for her. He said to her, "You can stop crying." 14 Then he went up and touched the bier, and the men who were carrying it stopped. He said, "Young man, I say to you, get up!" 15 The man who had been dead sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him back to his mother. 16 Fear gripped everyone, and they began to praise God, saying, "A great prophet has appeared among us," and "God has helped his people." 17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding countryside.

John 20:30-31

30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples that are not recorded in this book. 31 But these have been recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and so that through believing you may have life in his name.

Isaiah 35:5-6

5 6

Matthew 13:58

58 He did not perform many miracles there because of their unbelief.

John 3:16

16 "For this is how God loved the world: He gave his unique Son so that everyone who believes in him might not be lost but have eternal life.

Romans 4:1-25

1 What, then, are we to say about Abraham, our human ancestor? 2 For if Abraham was justified by actions, he would have had something to boast about {— } though not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness." 4 Now to someone who works, wages are not considered a gift but an obligation. 5 However, to someone who does not work, but simply believes in the one who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness. 6 Likewise, David also speaks of the blessedness of the person whom God regards as righteous apart from actions: 7 "How blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered! 8 How blessed is the person whose sins the Lord will never charge against him!" 9 Now does this blessedness come to the circumcised alone, or also to the uncircumcised? For we say, "Abraham's faith was credited to him as righteousness." 10 Under what circumstances was it credited? Was he circumcised or uncircumcised? He had not yet been circumcised, but was uncircumcised. 11 Afterward he received the mark of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. Therefore, he is the ancestor of all who believe while uncircumcised, in order that righteousness may be credited to them. 12 He is also the ancestor of the circumcised {— } those who are not only circumcised, but who also walk in the footsteps of the faith that our father Abraham had before he was circumcised. 13 For the promise that he would inherit the world did not come to Abraham or to his descendants through the law, but through the righteousness produced by faith. 14 For if those who were given the law are the heirs, then faith is useless and the promise is worthless, 15 for the law produces wrath. Now where there is no law, neither can there be any violation of it. 16 Therefore, the promise is based on faith, so that it may be a matter of grace and may be guaranteed for all of Abraham's descendants {— } not only for those who were given the law, but also for those who share the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all. 17 As it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations." Abraham acted in faith when he stood in the presence of God, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence things that don't yet exist. 18 Hoping in spite of hopeless circumstances, he believed that he would become "the father of many nations," just as he had been told: "This is how many descendants you will have." 19 His faith did not weaken when he thought about his own body (which was already as good as dead now that he was about a hundred years old) or about Sarah's inability to have children, 20 nor did he doubt God's promise out of a lack of faith. Instead, his faith became stronger and he gave glory to God, 21 being absolutely convinced that God would do what he had promised. 22 This is why "it was credited to him as righteousness." 23 Now the words "it was credited to him" were written not only for him 24 but also for us. Our faith will be regarded in the same way, if we believe in the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was sentenced to death because of our sins and raised to life to justify us.

Romans 8:18

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed to us.

Romans 8:32

32 The one who did not spare his own Son, but offered him as a sacrifice for all of us, surely will give us all things, along with his son, won't he?

Galatians 2:20

20 I no longer live, but the Messiah lives in me, and the life that I am now living in this body I live by the faithfulness of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

1 Thessalonians 5:18

18 In everything be thankful, because this is God's will for you in the Messiah Jesus.

Hebrews 11:6

6 Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who diligently search for him.

Deuteronomy 28:1-68

1 "Indeed, if you diligently obey the LORD your God to carry out all his commands that I'm giving you today, then the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 Moreover, all these blessings will come upon you in abundance, if you obey the LORD your God: 3 "Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the country. 4 "Blessed shall your children be, as well as the produce of your land, the offspring of your beasts and cattle, and the offspring of your flock. 5 "Blessed shall be your grain basket and your kneading bowl. 6 "Blessed shall you be in your comings and goings." 7 "The LORD will make your enemies, who rise against you and attack from one direction, to flee from you in seven directions. 8 "The LORD will send blessings for you with regard to your barns and everything you undertake. Indeed, he will bless you in the land that the LORD your God is about to give you. 9 "The LORD will assign you to be a holy people for himself, just as he promised you, as long as you keep his commands and walk in his ways. 10 "Then all the people of the earth will observe that the name of the LORD is proclaimed among you, and they will fear you. 11 "The LORD will show his abundant goodness with respect to your children, the offspring of your animals, and the produce of your farmland that he promised your ancestors he would give you. 12 "The LORD will open his rich treasury, the heavens, to release rain upon your land in season and bless everything you undertake so that you'll lend to many nations but won't borrow. 13 "The LORD your God will make you the head and not the tail {— } placing you above and not beneath {— } if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I'm giving you today to keep and observe. 14 Do not deviate from any of his commands that I'm giving you today {— } neither to the right nor the left {— } to follow and serve other gods." 15 "But if you don't obey the LORD your God and faithfully carry out all his commands and statutes that I'm giving you today, then all these curses will come upon you and overwhelm you. 16 "Cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the country. 17 "Cursed shall be your grain basket and your kneading bowl. 18 "Cursed shall your children be, as well as the produce of your land, the offspring of your beasts and cattle, and the offspring of your flock. 19 "Cursed shall you be in your comings and goings." 20 "The LORD will send the curse among you, will confuse you, and will rebuke you in everything you undertake until you are destroyed and perish quickly because of your evil deeds, since you will have forsaken him. 21 The LORD will cause you to be ill with long-lasting diseases until you are wiped out from the land that you are entering to possess. 22 The LORD will afflict you with tuberculosis, fever, inflammation, high fever, drought, blight, and mildew. These will attack you until you are completely destroyed. 23 The sky above your head will become bronze while the ground beneath you will become iron. 24 The LORD will change the rain on your land to powder and dust. It will come down from the sky until you are exterminated." 25 "The LORD will cause you to be defeated by your enemies. You'll go out against them in one direction, but you'll flee from them in seven directions. Consequently, you'll be in a state of great terror throughout all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 Your dead bodies will be food for the birds of the sky and the wild animals of the earth, with no one to chase them away. 27 "The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt, with tumors, skin disease, and festering rashes, and none of them will be curable. 28 The LORD will afflict you with insanity, blindness, and mental confusion. 29 As a result, you'll wander aimlessly in broad daylight just as a blind person wanders in darkness. You won't prosper in life. Instead you'll be oppressed and plundered all day long, with no deliverer. 30 You'll be engaged to a woman, but another man will rape her. You'll build a house but you won't live in it. You'll plant a vineyard but you won't harvest it. 31 Your ox will be slaughtered in front of you, and you won't be able to eat it. Your donkey will be stolen from you while you watch and won't be returned to you. Your flock of sheep will be handed to your enemies and there will be no deliverer. 32 Your sons and daughters will be given to another people while you watch, and you won't be able to approach them at all, and you'll be powerless to help. 33 A people whom you don't know will devour what your land and labor produces. You'll be only oppressed and discouraged continually 34 until you are driven insane from what your eyes will see. 35 "The LORD will inflict you with incurable boils on your knees and legs, and from the sole of your foot to the top of your head. 36 "The LORD will banish you and your king whom you will appoint over you to go to a nation that neither you nor your ancestors have known, and there you'll serve other gods of wood and stone. 37 You'll become a desolation and a proverb, and you'll be mocked among the people where the LORD will drive you." 38 "You'll plant many seeds in a field, but your harvest will be small because the locust will consume it. 39 You'll plant a vineyard, but you won't drink wine or harvest any grapes, because worms will consume it. 40 You'll have olive trees throughout your territory, but you won't be able to anoint yourself with oil, because the olives will drop off the trees. 41 You'll bear sons and daughters, but they won't belong to you, because they'll go into captivity. 42 Whirling locusts will consume every tree and the produce of your land. 43 The foreigner in your midst will be elevated higher and higher over you, while you are brought low little by little. 44 He will lend to you, but you won't lend to him. He'll be the head, but you'll be the tail. 45 All these curses will come upon you and will overwhelm you until you are exterminated, because you didn't obey the LORD your God to keep his commands and statutes, which he had commanded you. 46 These curses will serve as a sign and wonder for you and your descendants as long as you live." 47 "Because you didn't serve the LORD your God joyfully and wholeheartedly, despite the abundance of everything you have, 48 you'll serve your enemies whom the LORD your God will send against you. You will serve in famine and in drought, in nakedness, and in lack of everything. They'll set a yoke of iron upon your neck until they have exterminated you. 49 "The LORD will raise a distant nation against you from the other side of the earth. Swooping down like a vulture, 50 it will be a nation whose language you don't understand, whose stern appearance neither shows regard nor extends grace to anyone whether old or young. 51 Its army will consume the offspring of your animals and the produce of your soil until you are exterminated. They will leave you without your grain, wine, oil, the increase of your cattle, and the lamb of your flock, until you are completely destroyed. 52 They'll besiege all your cities until your high and fortified walls in which you have trusted collapse throughout the land. Indeed, they will besiege all your cities, which the LORD your God gave you. 53 "You'll eat your own children {— } the flesh of your sons and daughters, whom the Lord your God gave you {— } on account of the siege and the distress with which your enemy will oppress you. 54 Even the compassionate man among you {— } the very sensitive one {— } will look with evil in his eyes toward his brother, his beloved wife, and his surviving sons, whom he spared. 55 He will withhold from each of them the flesh of his sons that he is eating {— } since there will be nothing left {— } on account of the siege and distress with which your enemy will oppress you in all your cities. 56 The most tender and sensitive lady among you, who doesn't venture to touch the soles of her feet to the ground on account of her daintiness, will look with hostility in her eyes against her beloved husband, her sons, and her daughters. 57 She will eat her afterbirth and her newborn children secretly {— } since there will be nothing left {— } on account of the siege and distress with which your enemy will oppress you in your cities." 58 "If you aren't careful to observe all the words of this Law that have been written in this book, instructing you to fear this glorious and awesome name of the LORD your God 59 then he will inflict extraordinary plagues on you and your children, great and lasting plagues, and severe and lasting illnesses. 60 He will inflict on you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they won't be curable. 61 Moreover, the LORD will inflict you with illnesses and plagues that were not written in this book of the Law, until you are exterminated. 62 Because you will not have obeyed the LORD your God, very few of you will be left {— } instead of you being as numerous as the stars in the heavens. 63 Just as the LORD delighted to prosper and increase you, so now the LORD will delight to destroy, exterminate, and banish you from the land that you are about to enter to possess." 64 "He'll scatter you among the peoples from one end of the earth to the other, and there you'll serve other gods made of wood and stones, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. 65 Among those nations you'll have no rest. There'll be no resting place for the soles of your feet. Instead, the LORD will give you an anxious heart, failing eyesight, and a despairing spirit. 66 You'll cling to life, being fearful by both night and day, with no assurance of survival. 67 In the morning you'll say, 'I wish it were evening.' Yet in the evening you'll say, "I wish it were morning," on account of what you'll dread and what you'll see. 68 Finally, the LORD will bring you back to Egypt by ship, a place that I said you'll never see again. There you'll try to sell yourselves to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you."

Luke 8:50

50 But when Jesus heard this, he told the synagogue leader, "Stop being afraid! Just believe, and she will get well."

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 When the earth was unformed and desolate, with the surface of the ocean depths shrouded in darkness, and while the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters, 3 God said, "Let there be light!" So there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness, 5 calling the light "day," and the darkness "night." The twilight and dawn were day one. 6 Then God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters, separating water from water!" 7 So God made the expanse, separating the water beneath the expanse from the water above it. And so it was. 8 God called the expanse "sky." The twilight and the dawn were the second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water beneath the sky come together into one area, and let dry ground appear!" And so it was. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and he called the water that had come together "oceans." And God saw how good it was. 11 Then God said, "Let vegetation sprout all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed!" And so it was: 12 Vegetation sprouted all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed. And God saw that it was good. 13 The twilight and the dawn were the third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish day from night, to act as signs for seasons, days, and years, 15 to serve as lights in the expanse of the sky, and to shine on the earth!" And so it was. 16 God fashioned two great lights {— } the larger light to illumine the day and the smaller light to illumine the night {— } as well as the stars. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the sky to shine on the earth, 18 to illumine both day and night, and to distinguish light from darkness. And God saw how good it was. 19 The twilight and the dawn were the fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the oceans swarm with myriads of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth throughout the sky!" 21 So God created every kind of magnificent sea creature, every kind of living sea crawler with which the waters swarmed, and every kind of flying bird. And God saw how good it was. 22 God blessed them by saying, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the oceans. Let the birds multiply throughout the earth!" 23 The twilight and the dawn were the fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth each kind of living creature, each kind of livestock and crawling thing, and each kind of wild animal!" And so it was. 25 God made each kind of wild animal, along with every kind of livestock and crawling thing. And God saw how good it was. 26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us. Let them be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, the livestock, everything that crawls on the earth, and over the earth itself!" 27 So God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created him; he created them male and female. 28 God blessed these humans by saying to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and be master over it! Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, and every living thing that crawls on the earth!" 29 God also told them, "Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant that grows throughout the earth, along with every tree that grows seed-bearing fruit. They shall produce your food. 30 I have given all green plants as food for every wild animal of the earth, every bird that flies, and to every living thing that crawls on the earth." And so it was. 31 Now God saw all that he had made, and, indeed, it was very good! The twilight and the dawn were the sixth day.

Acts 19:11-12

11 God continued to do extraordinary miracles through Paul. 12 When handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched his skin were taken to the sick, their diseases left them and evil spirits went out of them.

Matthew 9:27-31

27 As Jesus was traveling on from there, two blind men followed him, shouting, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" 28 When he had gone into the house, the blind men came to him. Jesus asked them, "Do you believe I can do this?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord!" 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith, let it be done for you!" 30 And their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly told them, "See to it that nobody knows about this." 31 But they went out and spread the news about him throughout that region.

2 Corinthians 12:7-10

7 To keep me from becoming conceited because of the exceptional nature of these revelations, a thorn was given to me and placed in my body. It was Satan's messenger to keep on tormenting me so that I would not become conceited. 8 I pleaded with the Lord three times to take it away from me, 9 but he has told me, "My grace is all you need, because my power is perfected in weakness." Therefore, I will most happily boast about my weaknesses, so that the Messiah's power may rest on me. 10 That is why I take such pleasure in weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for the Messiah's sake, for when I am weak, then I am strong.

James 5:13-16

13 Is anyone among you suffering? He should keep on praying. Is anyone cheerful? He should keep reciting psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? He should call for the elders of the church, and they should pray for him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will save the person who is sick. The Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, make it your habit to confess your sins to one another and to pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

James 5:15

15 And the prayer offered in faith will save the person who is sick. The Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.
