A Get Well Prayer for my Brother

It can be worrying when a family member or loved one gets sick. However, we thank the LORD Jesus Christ, who gives us the anointing power to heal the sick and lets us experience His faithfulness and peace in all situations. As you are here looking for a healing prayer for your brother, know that you have authority in Christ against all sickness and disease because Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross. Isaiah 53:5 says that by His stripes, we are healed. When you pray for your brother, consider the sickness as an enemy and command it to leave in this manner:

In Jesus’ name, I command the sickness to leave my brother’s body right now! By the stripes of Jesus, he is healed!

If your brother is in pain, you can also command the pain to leave his body in the name of Jesus. You can then ask him and confirm if his pain disappeared or lessened after you prayed. Never stop praying and declaring healing for your brother. It is how Christians overcome the works of the enemy and walk in the victory of Christ Jesus every day.

Moreover, suppose you cannot physically visit your brother or lay your hands on him. In that case, you can pray to the Heavenly Father for your brother, start praising God and thanking Him for the healing brought upon by the blood of Jesus Christ. Here is a prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for my brother’s life. Thank You for Your grace and strength in our current situation. The stripes of Jesus healed him already, and I will see Your goodness and faithfulness in his life. I praise You and magnify Your power in the midst of all this, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

How do I say get well soon to my brother?

You can express many things to your brother to help him feel better. You can simply be there for him and let your presence be felt, assuring him that he’s not alone in the journey, and that you are there supporting him in all facets of his life. Sometimes, it can be awkward for siblings to express their hearts and communicate their honest thoughts and feelings, but it is important to express them in any way you can. With that in mind, here are some ways you can express a “get well soon” to your brother:

  1. Send him a letter or give him a letter with your message. You can write your well wishes and prayers for your brother in the letter and tell him how much you love and care for him. He can read the letter after you leave the room or when you are not together. This way, you can express what is in your heart without it feeling awkward.
  2. Say a prayer for your brother. Prayer brings people closer together because God is among them, listening to the prayer. You can let your brother hear you utter words that bring life, impart faith in Jesus, and praise the authority of Christ Jesus. 
  3. You can read him stories in the Gospel where Jesus brought about healing. Nothing can bring healing and recovery faster than hearing the Word of God, hearing about Jesus Christ healing diseases, and raising the dead.  
  4. You can share your favorite music with him and encourage him to listen to it.
  5. You can also be direct and tell him how much you love him and that you are praying for his healing. You can talk about funny memories you have together and laugh your hearts out!

Now that you have some of these lists, you may have more ideas on how to express a get-well message to your brother. Let the Holy Spirit lead you into all of these as you express your love and affection for your brother.

How do I pray for my brother?

Praying for your brother is the best way to express how much you truly love him. It is a gift when a person wants to bring you closer to God. Your prayer is a gift to your brother, and whether he is aware of it or not, his spirit feels your prayer and its impact on him in many ways. You can pray to God for many things about your brother, such as for his health, future, career, education (if he is still studying), future spouse or girlfriend, his spiritual life and relationship with God, and so much more.

Moreover, how you choose to pray for your brother may depend on the situation. You can pray for him in your prayer closet and talk privately to God, or sometimes you must pray with him together, depending on what the situation calls for. It is important to partner with the Holy Spirit in all things you do, including praying for your brother. Sometimes, the Holy Spirit can show you what you may need to pray for your brother. Sometimes, He will also show you scriptures in the Bible for you to declare and pray over your brother. The Holy Spirit is in charge and takes the lead as you pray for your brother. Let Him lead you to pray for the things God wants.
