Suggested Books on Healing and Prayer

(South Haven, Michigan)

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 

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

J. P. Moreland, Finding Quiet: My Story of Overcoming Anxiety and the Practices that Brough Peace 

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

For some of my thoughts on prayer and healing see my book Praying.
