Prayers for Total Emotional and Mental Healing

Prayer for the Battlefield of the Mind:

Psalm 23:3 “He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”

Heavenly Father, I need you to restore my soul as I am so weary with this baggage from the past. I feel like I’m fighting for my sanity right now. So many things are pushing me at the same time and the stress is unbearable. I realize that the real source of my problem is the pain I am dealing with. My pain took me to a hard, emotional place in my mind. Lord, I have prayed and sought Your face, but I find no relief. Before all of this, I don’t think I fully understood the anguish that King David was trying to convey in his psalms. I get it now. I come to ask You to restore the right spirit in me and be my victory in the battle for my emotional well-being.

I am standing on Psalm 107:6 “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.” I know you promise and are capable of the deliverance of my soul. You know that I have no one to confide in because no one really understands the burning wounds that have torn me apart and the deep anguish that I am going through. Oh Lord, I come to You to heal my emotions, to heal my wounded heart, I pray. Heal the torment that is deep within. Release into the aching emptiness within, your love and your peace, your hope and your gracious presence, and gently carry me as a kind Shepherd carries a frightened, slightly wounded lamb. Lord, I trust You because I know You alone can be trusted.


Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Prayer for Emotional Healing

Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Dear God, I come to you today with a broken heart, feeling overwhelmed and struggling with my emotions. These emotional scars seem to be the worse kind of illness. I ask for your healing and guidance as I navigate these difficult feelings.

Give me the strength to let go of anything that is causing me pain and the courage to face my fears. Help me to find peace and comfort in your love and to trust in your plan for my life. I pray for the wisdom to understand my emotions and the grace to heal and grow from them. Please guide me on how you want me to navigate this healing. If you want me to work with a Christian professional, please show me the person I should see. I have total faith in your ability to heal me, and I know you work through professionals. Show me to way to go.

I trust in your power to bring healing and restoration to my mind and heart. In your precious name I pray, Amen.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
