What is Healing Prayer ?

When it comes to seeking help, healing prayer is one path common to many people. It is a common way to communicate wishes, hopes, desires and any number of situations with a higher power. This is valid whether it's God, the Gods, Buddha, the highest self or even an inner child.

One good thing is that it doesn't require an intermediary. While we may say an oration in a church, temple or mosque, this isn't essential. We can keep it in our mind walking along a busy street or on a trip. We can say it at home, in our office, in a park, in fact anywhere we feel like it.

It is a convenient means of connecting. It is communication at the highest level. It's also a means through which many people seek to help improve their chance in life. As you can immagine, good health ranks high among those things which people ask for.

Here is a beautiful prayer revealed by Baha'u'llah, suggested to me by a reader, from Bahai Faith
"Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise."

Prayer and healing are linked in the minds of many. In certain religions, there are specific ones for recovering purposes. These are performed in accordance with the tradition that created them. They exist for the sole purpose of helping someone recover him or herself, or bring health to others.

They may focus on different aspects of healing. These include physical, emotional, psychological and even spiritual. These forms may be subdivided into two different major types.

Types of Prayers for Healing

Essentially, prayers for healing can be divided into two distinct groups:

  • Religious – whether done alone or in a group, their basis is religious in nature. This includes Christianity, Baha’i, Muslim, Hindu, Neo-paganism and other forms of organized religion.
  • Non-religious – undertaken by any group or individual that is not religious in nature. This can include secular and philosophical groups and individuals.

It Can Be Effective

Healing prayer may or may not be religious in nature. It may or may not be effective. No matter who does it, under what auspices and for what purpose (self or others), it can be an effective tool.

While science and medicine argue about its effectiveness, people continue to earnestly believe in this practice. They combine it with other practices e.g. meditation, energy therapy and alternative medicine, to achieve the best results possible. This is human nature being creative to reach its goals.

What clients say

I went to Massimo for a healing session in which I experienced calmness and opening of my heart.
All the sadness I had as a child and images from my childhood went by and were gone. An hour treatment went by like ten minutes. In other times I experienced very deep meditations, quietness, yet very alert and awake. Thanks Massimo for helping me get in touch with the healing force within me.

- Liat, Netanya, Israel


Dear Massimo, thanks so much for your healing sessions. So many things changed and improved since the beginning of your treatments. You are very gifted and all you are doing arises from the depth of your heart and the depth of the knowledge you channel. I highly recommend you as a healer.

- Zvi, Tel Aviv, Israel


Good luck: with this single word I can express what I feel to have met Massimo.
I have been knowing him for 10 years and working with him I have done a path to awareness.
He is a good teacher, sincere, honest, which guides you to the truth and peace that our heart desires and can achieve.
- Tiziana, Arezzo, Italy


For me, healing means integrity and the consistency of living my daily life, relationships and job in the way of my true "I".
Massimo has the rare ability to lead people, and therefore me, to
transform obstacles that stand between you and what you want to realize in available energy. He does so with great respect, patience and lack of judgment.
Massimo, thanks for all that I get from you.

- Maria, Udine, Italy

When Massimo gave me healing sessions online, I experienced him as a sensitive and dedicated man who has the gift to sense into deeper layers of the soul and affect them in a gentle and non intruding way. His careful way of approaching the pain in my eyes and the feedback he gave me from his sensitive perceptions helped me to gain trust and confidence in my healing process.
