Suggested Books on Healing and Prayer

South Haven, Michgan

Someone asked me: 

What books do you recommend on healing and prayer???
I would like a deeper understanding on the ups and downs and whys...

My response to them is:

The two books I recommend to enter into this subject are:

Power Healing, by John Wimber 

Healing, by Francis MacNutt 


MacNutt, The Healing Reawakening: Reclaiming Our Lost Inheritance

Charles Kraft, Deep Wounds, Deep Healing

Neil Anderson, Freedom From Fear: Overcoming Worry and Anxiety

Henry Cloud and John Townshend, What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do: Overcoming Worry and Depression

Max Lucado, Fearless

David Seamands, Healing for Damaged Emotions

Everett Worthington, Moving Forward: Six Steps to Forgiving Yourself and Breaking Free from the Past

Randy Clark, Authority to Heal: Restoring the Lost Inheritance of God's Healing Power

Candy Gunther Brown, Testing Prayer: Science and Healing (the best empirical study on the connection between prayer and healing) 

Candy Gunther Brown, ed., Global Pentecostal and Charismatic Healing

HERE are some books that are not on healing, but God has used to heal to me.

C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

Henri Nouwen, The Inner Voice of Love

Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline

Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Flannery O'Connor, Collected Works

The Four Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
