It is not the will of God for any child of God to fall ill, be afflicted by any form of infirmity or remain in sickness. When Jesus paid the price on the Cross, He paid it in full—that included the price for our sound health.
Isaiah 53:5 KJVBut he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Therefore, it is the will of God that Sons of the kingdom enjoy sound health:
3 John 1:2 KJVBeloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
3 John 1:2 NIVDear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
Sickness is the handiwork of the enemy (not the portion of a genuine Christian). If a child of God gets sick for any reason, the Blood of Jesus is potent enough to cater for their healing.
How To Pray For Your Healing And Recovery
Exodus 15:26 KJVAnd said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
First of all, understand that it is the will of God for you to be healed. Healing and sound health is your birthright as a Christian.
If it is a part of your body that needs healing, place your (Anointed) hand on that spot when you are praying.
Prayers of healing must be prayed by faith. There should be no doubt or uncertainty in the mind on whether it's going to work or not.
Anoint yourself or the sick person with Anointing oil when necessary.

How Do You Pray For Someone Else's Healing?
Before praying for someone else's healing, it is needful to first of all know their standing with God.
If they are unsaved, it is proper to share Jesus with them and lead them to Christ before praying for their healing. This is needed to hasten their healing.
If they choose not to accept Jesus, but they want you to pray for their healing, simply go ahead and pray for them in the name of Jesus. Do not forget that God is still healing and helping unbelievers. By so doing, many have had a change of mind and decided to follow Jesus after receiving their healing.
It is very needful to make a person who needs healing to confess their sins and ask for forgiveness before praying for their healing. This is due to the fact that, sin is rebellion against God and it comes with dire consequences (including sicknesses):
John 5:14 KJVAfterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
Also remember to encourage them to stay faithful to God and stay out of sin after they've gotten their healing.
James 5:16 KJVConfess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
The Bible makes us understand that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much. Understand that you as a Christian has been Anointed to bring healing to the sick. Your hands are Anointed to heal.
